Heh, conehead! Low Rider got neutered. He had to wear the cone of shame. He is doing really well with no more marking his territory.

Manny had a Chamber Choir concert up at UNR. Todd, Noble and Devree were able to go up and see him. I had a book group and Shay had a friend over to spend the night and Dane wanted to play with the friend.
Shay and Dane were invited up to Lake Tahoe to see the salmon spawn. Thank you O'Barrs and Watt's for taking them along.

Shay took my camera and let someone take his picture but he did well with the pictures. Although I had to delete several pictures of dead fish that Shay thought were interesting.
Several families from the ward went up because it was a day off from school.
Dane looking at the fish and acting very excited.

Shay looking at the fish.

Shay got quite close to this duck.
Stephen and Shay at the under the water look.
Taking "kissing" pictures of the sockeye salmon.
Stephen with the kissing pictures.

Kennidy and Mackinley.
A good pose for Kennidy. She was also on Shay's soccer team and her Mom Staci coached.
Someone carved Noble in the tree so they had to take a picture.
There was a "Daddy/Daughter Date" at the church. Todd got to have a date with one of the girls whose Dad doesn't live close. Devree ended up going to 2 parties and Shay went to one party where he was the only boy. Noble went to his Singles Branch Party so Dane and I went on a date with his good buddy Tanner and Tanner's Mom, Connie. We went to see "The Guardian's of Gaoole". It was very good. Here they are trying out the new D-box chairs and laughing at delight.
Devree at her 1st costume, birthday party for Ali.

At our Halloween party. I was Shana Banana and Todd was "Ape for me".

For our Halloween party Devree was "Penelope the pig-nosed girl".
Shay was the "Cool Vampire"
We had 3- 3 yr old girls that were beautiful fairies! Plus a cute witch. Chiara, Aubrey, Alyssa and Mallory were some of our guests. Stephen was wearing a traditional Equador costume.
Sariah and Makaela and I loved how Sariah gave herself "bunny ears".
Joseph wore traditional Chinese dynasty clothes.
Our favorite, most creative costume was Tanner. He was a peice of dirt! Notice his hair is the grass and then bugs glued on his face and brown shirt and pants.
The Clark family.
Callie was a green witch and she is getting ready to eat some of our "bloody fingers".
Arianne with our "Who's Mummy are you?"game.
The Matthews getting wrapped up in the game.
Megan tying Stephanie in knots!
Joseph and Daniel being very precise with Krista.
Noble had a pre-cancerous mole removed. He got to tell everyone he got 14 stitches on top! We got to do this while others got to see the salmon spawn. He is healing nicely.
We roasted Ghosts at the Halloween party. Our "Ghosts" were HUGE marshmallows.
As you can see the fall has been very busy. Shay and Dane finished up their soccer season. Noble continues to work and earn money for his mission. Devree, Shay and Dane stay busy in school and we try to get in some fun too!
Happy Fall Y'all!

Loved all the pictures! We had so much fun seeing the salmon - it was such a beautiful day. We'll have to do it again when you can come, too.
Thanks for the fun Halloween party! It was great!
