The favorite thing for Clarissa, Kayci and now John is to jump on the trampoline. The girls love to put wally and Baq on trampoline. The dogs love it. They run around and go crazy. Thanks Dave & Annette for giving us back our trampoline. If we didn't have that then Clarissa & Kayci wouldn't play outside as much. They can jump and play on that for hours and they have.
Last weekend I found an end table at the DI. I debated all weekend if I wanted to get it for my bedroom. I started cleaning my room Monday morning and I figured out that I wanted to buy it so I could have a spot to put my books and things that I would use at night. So, I went to the DI bought it and decided I wanted to paint the end table to make it what I wanted. I sanded the table and painted it yesterday. I had a lot of fun and hope to do more projects at home. I even put a new knob on the drawer all by myself. If I can do it anyone can.

One great thing about living in Utah is that we don't have to vacation in Utah anymore. This 2008 summer we took our first big trip out of Utah. We went to the Oregon coast. We met my good friend, Cristy, and her family in Oregon. We rented a beach house together and had a very cold, rainy, fun time. We would do it again.

Each of the kids enjoyed halloween this year. This was John's first year that he understood what was going on. John was a good Darth Vador, he wasn't a bad one. Our local library had trick or treat for the little kids. They got to go to the county offices and get candy from the workers around the building. John had fun but took it very seriously. Kayci was a cowgirl at school and for the night. She thought that she was stylish. Clarissa was electricity at school and a wizard at night. I didn't get a picture of her with her night costume. Clarissa was nervous to be electricity at school but when she walked into class all the kids said, "cool costume, I love your hair" she then felt pretty cool.
