Let's see...

I don't know what to name this post, I haven't written in a while so I want to post, but there's so many things to write about. I could write for a long time. So here's how school has been:

We've been doing a lot of things, I just received my knew grammar program it's been a lot better then my old one. Math is going well, mom school is probably my favorite part of the day. We've read some classics and lots of American history. I am currently reading Work and the glory #3 I love it! For more Info check out my mom's Homeschooling blog. Merry Christmas

Not much

I realized that I haven't posted in December yet. It's not like nothing has been going on...

Okay, it's December 8 and there's no snow! I can't believe it, it's crazy! I can live without snow though. I'm not a winter person! Have I ever told you all that I love Idaho? Well I do, amazingly(just kidding) I love it here in rural Idaho, just the way I like it.

Today we woke up to a hazy/brown foggy atmosphere. It was quite strange, then it started sleeting! Crazy! We're getting to the snow point.
  1. Happy day Abbie! Yesterday Abigail was blessed in Pocatello. It was a fun day. After church we had a big dinner at "The office"It was great! And on the way back we stopped to see CJ and Stephannie and saw their new baby Jacob.

And well, a bunch of other things here's a slidshow of all the festives...

Doesn't it feel like the dead of winter? Thanksgiving is over, so get ready for winter things! Merry Christmas! It's almost December! any body have their Christmas lists done? Anyone?

Ener Dude Sutter

Jared's hamster died a little while ago. So he got a new one! This one is very friendly and does not hiss,bite or scratch(that type of thing). This one was actually bred to be very nice so we all adore him! This is Jared's quote about him "He is named Ener after Energy Dude his father." We all asked him why Energy dude "was" his father. He just replied "I like to pretend." Like the Kings and Queens of fairy tales I guess...
His new one!

Part Two: Temple Square

So following bowling we left for Utah.. My dad had a Thing in Denver and he was flying there and back in the same day so we just stayed at the hotel and hung out! We were able to go to Temple square and watch the Joesph Smith Movie(that's Jared's favorite thing to do). And we went to the distribution center to get Luke's 8 year presents(scriptures, case, etc.). Here are some pictures of Temple Square...

Blog Tag

So I've been tagged by my mom.

The following things are 8 interesting/unique/ whatever things about me.

1. I love horses(bet ya didn't know that!) I love riding, I've ridden in snow ad rain it doesn't keep me away!

2. I love computers and being on them. It's so fun. I enjoy every minute with them, unless of course I'm "mad" at them.

3. My dream vacation is a cruise on the Mediterranean, I want to go on a cruise sooooooo bad!

4. I'm at work today with my dad! I love the time here. Just to be on computers is a day of dreams to me( really it is)!

5. I love goodreads and to add books to my "to read" shelf. Most of them I don't know if I'll even read but it's fun to add them.

6. We went to Twin today and went shopping, I got some new "fake" nails(I'm running out of idea's).

7. I'm a total Conservative, I just can't stand Obama. To tell you the truth I almost puked when I found out he won! I just can't stand for him. As I would say to my parents, "my father has taught me well" just so all of you know my dad is the vice chair district 25 Republican party. I love it, stand for truth and right.

8. My favorite place to be is Southern Idaho, in small towns like Dietrich and Richfield. I just can't stand big cities, sometimes even Twin can be a little to big for me. I have seen quite a bit of the US compared to most people my age, and I choose here(of course I have been here the longest). I do like SLC(Salt Lake City) but just temple square. Always having to drive slow, it's just not fun! And most of all there isn't any horses! Well there are but not western style(western style riding) horses.

As you can see I can have big opinions and they matter to me. I stand for truth and right. I don't let evil get in my way. It's hard I can tell you, it's not like there aren't trials. Last but not least and once again, I stand for truth and right.

I tag anyone who want's to do it...

1st - Last Saturday was a really fun night. We went to the Halloween carnival! I really liked the "BIG" spook ally it was pretty cool. I also LOVED the "cake walk" that was fun also. I won 2 cakes! I was like the only one competing. So it was really easy. We also got to go with Tanner and Conor. They both had fun also.

2nd- we also had a wood project on Saturday and had a lot of fun and hard work with it! We had fun playing with the Brownlee kids.

3rd- Tonight we carved our pumpkins it was really fun. We loved it and had a great time.

4th- Abigail Lee Turgoose was born today so I have a new cousin. I'm so exited. I believe she was/is 9lbs 6oz.

5th- And I realized that I forgot to say anything about Roxy or Doing chores for 10 days. We have to go out there every morning and night. And with that we have to clean the stalls out, so fun! And so we had to do that tonight!

6th - We went up to Hailey and were able to meet Gov. Otter and had lunch with him! It was lots of fun.

A day well spent

Yesterday was a pretty busy day. I went over to my grandma's house to help with the "boys." Emily was there and Grandma was at the temple, Debra's boy's were there also because she was supposed to have her little Abbie Lee. But she didn't, so the boys are pretty much stuck. Also after school Emily brought the boys over to play.

Last but not least my mom had a stake meeting in Carey, so Danielle come over and babysat(my dad was in Boise). We had a blast : ) We played football in the house and did all sorts of other things. : )

Here are some pictures from our day...

Here we are taking the boys back to grandma's house.
As you can see I had my hands full! Here I am with Cameron and Carter.
Here is Caleb and Carter. Caleb loves to play with his cousins!
Here we are playing with Dannie, and as always It's blury but you can sort of see what going on.
