Our family at the pumpkin walk. We had a great time, the kids loved the rice crispy display. They enjoyed looking for all the M&M's in every scene making sure they found every one. And as usual they had to stick their heads in every hole of the pictures. Although Paisley didn't want her picture taken, BIG SURPRISE!

Dominic...The force is strong with this one....

And Seth, he was so excited to be Harry Potter.
After we went to my little sisters birthday party, she turned the 17. She asked Jess and I to double with her and a friend. We ended up going to PARANORMAL ACTIVITY...scared the day lights out of me. I screamed many times OUT LOUD! Things you do for family.

Driving down Oneida, I about freaked when I looked up. The clouds swirled and out dropped a funnel cloud. In a time of panic, what did I do? I pulled over and took a picture! Good old cell phones. (by the time I got the photo snapped, it was going back up inside the clouds. You can see it above the big white building) The storm only lasted about 10 minutes in town and it surprised me how fast it stopped. CRAZY, I thought living in a valley surrounded by mountains, funnel clouds wouldn't happen. *roller her eyes* Tis life, deal with it. So, my question is. Do I have my 72 hour kit ready?

A new twist to my blog! I'm going to start giving a review for the books I read. You have probably seen on my side panels pictures of some books I currently love, but never really said much about them. So, that's about to change. I love books! They take me away to new worlds or they can open my eyes to the world around me. Where ever they take you is special because it's just you and the characters in the story, and most importantly, you are reading. In my house books are a must and we read as a family almost everyday.

With out further delay, book number one.

WINGS by Aprilynne Pike. This author is very dear to me because she is my friend (that I had dinner with last night). She is also an amazing writer. Her book WINGS is about a teenage girl named Laural, who finds out she is a faerie. Oh, but not like the fairy tales portray. Throw in some historical background and new mythos and you have this amazing rendition. This is a three part seres and the second book will be released in May 2010.

Random Summer Photos

Since summer is over, and I'm having major withdrawals. I wanted to post some summer pictures hoping it would help warm me up. It didn't work. I'm still wrapped up in my blanket, freezing. But, they did make me smile.
