Jeff came down with a nasty throat infection this week, so instead of doing absolutely nothing for Halloween I took Sayge and Shaylee trick-or-treating. They were poodle girls and looked super cute. Sayge is really shy and couldn’t quite bring herself to say trick-or-treat, but luckily she had loud mouth Shaylee with her to take care of all the talking :] After their baskets got too heavy to carry we met Jeff at the Apple Peddler for dinner. They had bean burritos and informed Jeff and I that it is their new favorite food. Happy Halloween!

Sunday School Teachers

Jeff and I were called to be the 14 and 15 year old Sunday School Teachers in the Burns Ward a few Sundays ago. There is about 6 kids in our class, one of them being my little sister Sheyanne. We had a hard time tracking down a manual so the first week consisted of hangman, charades, and the new era. Today we gave an actual lesson, and as far as we’re concerned it went great! They all love Jeff because he brings them large amounts of candy… imagine that :]

Shaylee's Harvest Party

Today was Shay’s Harvest Party at school. Mom is still pretty sick, so I went with her and took some pictures. We went on a hayride to a pumpkin patch (AKA the Withee’s front yard) and had a great time! Oh to be a 4 year old again…

Never a dull moment with Shaylee around!

We're officially bloggers!!

My mom and sisters informed me a few weeks ago that blogging is the thing to do when you are married… we’re not getting married for 6 more weeks, but I thought I would give it a try. I’m HORRIBLE at keeping a journal, so hopefully I will be a little more successful at this :]

Mom came down with the Swine Flu on Sunday, so I am in Burns this week taking care of the girls. For those of you that know me well know that homemaking is not my strong point. Jeff, Dad, Skye, Sabrina, and Shelby call every few hours to make sure everyone is still alive and the house is still standing. haha They are quite impressed with the progress I am making! My days have been filled with taking and picking up the girls from school, making beds, laundry, cartoons, cooking dinner, dishes, playing with Shaylee, and DISINFECTING everything in sight! Tomorrow there is harvest parties, tap dance, and whatever else Shaylee throws my way. She informed me yesterday when I picked her up from school that I better hurry up and go get her some french fries, because people die if they don’t eat french fries. She is quite the character! Overall it has been a nice break from school and fun spending time with Jeff and my family.

Jeff has exactly 2 days of haying season left! It just started raining though, so who knows how that will turn out :] He is going to miss baling hay, but is excited to have a few weekends a month off. We have been spending a lot of time working on the house the last few weekends. It is looking so good! Him and our friend Nate winterized everything on Sunday night, it was quite the process, but he is relieved to have it done for another year. He has spent a lot of time over at my parents house with me and the little girls this week. The little girls love him! They walk around the house calling him Jeffrey. He taught Shaylee how to play the wii the other night, and you would have thought he gave her a million bucks.

Overall we’re hoping that mom gets better soon… the entire ranch doesn’t get swine flu… and that it will stop raining long enough to get 2 more pivots baled! Have a great week!!
