Yes, I know it has been over 6 months since my last post. Life sometimes gets in the way. So...here are the highlights of the last 6 months. Reader beware that 6 months is a long time so get comfy it's a long post. (Lindsay's self serve haircut is at the end.)
I had a pattern for the bodice and skirt but the rest I made up as I went along with the movie cover and a doll as a guide. It was really fun. (But I am kinda geeky with the sewing...I love it.)
Lindsay: Alexa from the Barbie Diamond Castle Same thing with this one...Pattern for the bodice and skirt with a doll and movie cover as a guide. I'm kind of a perfectionist with it but this time I was actually happy with how they turned out.
Most of all the girls Love their dresses and will be dancing around the house in them all year long.
Brad: the grim reaper or unknown phantom By the time I was done with the dresses I could not find a pattern in stock for the Reaper. So, we bought his this year. Also pictured here is Brad's best bud Hunter. This year the two boys went out on their own and came in with a load of candy and had an awesome time.
We finished "Eddie" (the Motor home) just in time for spring. Here is Eddie on its maiden voyage up Logan canyon by the girl scout camp. We stayed nice and toasty that night in the Eddie mobile. It has a thermostat that cycles on and off throughout the night, so, camping in the spring was way fun. The kids just can't wait to go camping each time we go.
We camped quite a bit in the summer so here are just a few of the trips with "Eddie".
Snug as a bug. The kids sleep well in Eddie.
They ride pretty well too (although with the Van they have space between them so in the camper the "she's breathing my Air" becomes a factor.)
We stayed in Wyoming all weekend that trip and so on Sunday we went to a sacrament in Fairview. It was kinda fun to use the Camper shower and get all dressed up for Sacrament meeting. Lots of great memories. We also visited Uncle Terry's Cabin up Elbow Canyon on more property he owns. It is a fun little rustic place.
We also Tent Camped this summer...
We hiked as a family into the double arch. It was amazing to be inside this.
Brad finished out his 6th grade year on the honor roll. His first year in middle school. We are so proud of him. In July he turned 12. A milestone Birthday. We had told him all year long that if he did well all year long in school that for his birthday he could get a TV for his room. He had been asking for one for a year.
With enough mousse and spray I can plaster it into piggys. So, I asked her why she did it. Her reply, "I wanted to be Mulan." (That is the movie she was watching.) Boy do we have some adventures ahead with our Lindsay.
