Halloween/Nevada Day Week!

This is the Nevada Day Parade and this was a cool float with 2 planes on it. The parade theme was the 100th anniversary of aviation.
Noble got to hold about 5 pizzas at a time and sell them during the parade.

This was Nica playing the quad drum with Josh playing the tuba in front of her. Nica and Josh are both juniors. Dayton High School won for best band during the parade.

These are the Shriners and they were hillarious as they drove their cars. Although one guy stepped in front of them during maneuvers and got hit.

Here is Shay in the second row second in playing the trumpet.

Here are two more girls from the ward; Emma and Celestine playing flute.

We went to the church for the Trunk or Treat and Todd and the Teachers quorum were in charge of Dog doodie. They found this real DEAD BIRD!

Trying to get the Evans family on the run. Sorry they are a little blurry. What a darling family.

The Gardner family always do a family theme. We loved their Toy Story costumes.
Todd surprised me by taking off work on Thursday and whisked me away to Sacramento. We were able to attend a session and loved the temple there. It is very beautiful inside and out. Then Todd took me to "The Boiling Crab". We ate lobster, shrimp, rice, corn and sweet potato fries. It was a great way to celebrate turning a half century old!
On Monday Devree had a fall concert and it was wonderful. I was very sad I didn't have my camera. Devree is in the advanced choir and it was so beautiful it made me cry. It is an all girls choir this year and they just have almost perfect harmony.
This week has been sad too. We found out a friend of ours is battling breast cancer for the 2nd time. She was able to have a miracle baby this last summer, her 3rd child, and this last week she had a double masectomy. We also know a little boy who is one year older than Dane and has had heart surgery when he was younger. They don't know if he had a heart attack and drowned or was drowning and had a heart attack. He is in Primary Children's hospital now and his heart has been regulated but he is in critical condition. This week for those that want, will you please pray for Jennifer and Ben?
I continue to find blessings everyday and know that our family has had trials. As we learned today in Sunday School, we can grow from our trials. But I don't like to see others go through such hard trials.
