Cool new website

Just wanted to pass along this cool website I found called Blastoff. You can make it your home page and then customize it with the news, games social networks that you like. There is also a "mall" where you can click on all these cute little flair buttons and go to the store of choice. If you go there from Blastoff you get a % off and if you invite friends and they sign up under you, then everything they buy, you get a % of that too in the form of a commission check each month. The best part is, its free! Check it out and watch the video and see what ya think:

Clue Night

We had a Friday night free ( amazing!) and I was trying to think of something fun to do as a family. We havent had family game night in a while, so I thought we would just play a few games. Then I got the bright idea to have a Clue themed night. I made up invitations and told everyone which character they were to be. Then they had to dress as that character and come to dinner that way.

We had a candle lit dinner with fancy glasses and we called each other by their clue name ( except Abby, she was way too cool to really enjoy it, but we made her try!) After dinner, we got out the board game Clue and played. I ended up being the murderer. Mrs White in the Hall with the Wrench!! Fun Free Family entertainment!

Mrs Peacock
Professor Plum

Dixie Classic Fair

We went to the fair today! We had a lot of fun looking at exhibits and of course eating all the yummy yummy food. We had ribbon fries and an onion blossom ( great lunch huh?) and then everyone got to choose a sweet for themselves.

I got a fried snickers bar, Esther a caramel apple, Nate choose a funnel cake, Abby got a snow cone and Greg reallly wanted corn, so he chose corn, but then got some cheesecake too. I think we hit our sugar intake for the month all in one Friday!

Pioneer Club Campout

Our Pioneer Club had an overnight campout last Friday night. The kids had so much cooking over an open fire and fixing smores. Then they played some games, had a little sing a long and told spooky stories. Not everyone stayed overnight, but the few that did had fun and everyone wants to do it again!

Happy October!

There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots
may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on
the feelings, as now in October."
