I have been meaning to take a picture of this view. It is the view on the overpass as I drive home from getting the girls from school. It is just breathtaking. I love the blue sky, crisp rugged mountains, green grass, and even the new age building right there. I am taken away every time I see this. (Now note, I was on the side of the highway, and actually sitting on top of Autumn to get the pict., because I didn't want to step out and get hit by a car, so the giggling in the background noise was fun to.)

This is Autumn and Brooke afterschool when I pick them up, it was crazy hat day, and they got red wristbands, to help them say no to drugs, quite an ordeal. Today was crazy sock day and tomorrow is pajama day. Thursday is wear all red day. All to be aware to say no to drugs. Pretty cool.

Last night for FHE, we decided instead of stay home and think of how much we are missing everyone from Spokane, we decided to do some service. We made some treats, and took them to our friends.

It was very humorous!!!!!

This is Autumn making brownies

This is Spencer and Brookey stirring the marshmellows to make rice krispie treats. Notice Spencer's hotpad on his left hand. Very funny.

Ok, so we were trying to mush out the krispie treats on a cookie sheet, and Mark dug right in, because it was cooling, so we had to work quickly, all the kids are putting oil on their hands so the krispy mess doesn't stick, well, dad skiped that step and look at the mess he has on them! It was so darn funny! (We also colored the marshmellow orange with food coloring, it worked quite well)

These are the finished plates. We made cards with vampires, mummies, and broomsticks on them. It was so fun! Notice we had to change Spencer's shirt before we left, because his other one was COVERED with frosting!

That was our monday night? What did you do? Leave a comment to let us know.

You have the greatest family. I am so happy you are having FHE. Your treats look YUM! I want a treat and a hug.
We talked about Rick's 5th Sunday lesson...are you HTing and VTing? AND for the activity part we put the moulding down in the Magic Room. Imagine that! We have lived here 5 years and we are finally putting the moulding down. Looks good. I am getting our house ready for holiday company. Whoopee Ding. Mom

Well, Amy your FHE looked really fun and yummy. We are memorizing scriptures. We are on our 2nd one...Alma 32:21! The first one we memorized was Proverbs 12:22. When I listened to General Conference my inspiration was to memorize some scriptures to help teach my children the gospel principles. It has been fun to listen to them especially when they get it memorized. My kids fav. thing to do for FHE is a
'show n'tell' they love that part. It can get pretty crazy.
Love reading about your blog. Have a great day.

You little domestic overachiever you! LOL Next time mix in half a package of orange jello - YUM! Then send them to ME!

Thanks for keeping up your blog. The kids love checking to see what the Mauzy's are up to. A good friend would probably set up the same in return, huh?

OH - you want to know what we did for FHE! I can read, really I can!

This week B and Jason taught a lesson about Elder Holland's talk Fixing Broken Things (I think that's what it's called -it was our RS lesson this week too). Then we ate a funky "blondie" recipe I made - not so good, won't be making that again any time soon (It was nothing like Applebee's blondie).

Monday night we went to see Kenn Nesbett www.poetry4kids.com at Megan/Jared's school and I got suckered in to buying 3 of his books. He's kind of like a Shel Silverstein of the kids' age! I didn't so much like him, but they did!

I would love to be at your house on FHE. Looks so fun. You are great parents. I always say, YOU only get to raise your children ONCE. Looks like you are doing a good job. GMA

It looks like you had a lot of fun. Good treats and good service. We loved seeing the Mauzy's and what they are up to. We had our lesson from the GAK(gospel art kit). WE learned about the baptism font that is in the temple. We sang lots of songs including Autumn Time (also sang it:Ashtyntime and Haileytime He he ). The kids loved show and tell. And then we ate some of the last zuchini cake for this season for our dessert. Kind of boring but we loved it. It think it is great to be setting the tradition now and just have that special time that is just for us to be together. We love you. Love Sam Jill Ashtyn and Hailey
