I LOVE HALLOWEEN! I think is it so fun to decorate the house and be someone or something else for one night. We had a blast this Halloween with school parties and trick-or-treating. It was especially fun to have Grandpa Hobbs here to share it with us.

Cache and Cooper with bug filled grass for hair!

Our little Belle...so sweet!

One cute cat! MEOW!

Cache Turns 9!

Cache turned nine years old on October 7th! He celebrated in a lot of places with a lot of his favorite people! Grandma Hobbs bought him the ultimate gift....a motorcycle shirt and gloves.

Tony surprised everyone (especially me) with a 22 gauge rifle & 410 shotgun for Cache. They have had a lot of fun since then shooting targets.

Popping Grandma and Grandpa Traveller's money filled balloons!

Celebrating at Grandpa Hobbs for breakfast!

Celebrating with Aunt Stephanie!


With the changing of the leaves, comes another trip to Moab. This time, we took the Wards with us. After a lot of stress and disappointment, they left their Bronco at home and rented a Jeep Rubicon instead. Tony put it to the test and it (and it's driver) did great! Thanks for coming with us!
Through the crack!

Cache driving...gas, brake, & steering! Should I be worried? I guess this is a typical Moab thing. At least he'll know how to drive by the time he's 15.

White Knuckle Hill. Notice that I got out and Cache got in. He is just like his Dad!

Another crazy descent!

Fall Photo

When Grandma Hobbs was here visiting she took this photo of the kids just before we walked into church. Some days I can't believe how much my kids have grown. Oh, how I love them!


The month of September started off with going back to school and getting back into a schedule. Shelby started Apple Blossom Preschool and loves it! She goes to school on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Cache is in the 3rd Grade and has Mrs. Sato as his teacher. Cooper is in the 2nd Grade and has Mrs. Speicher as his teacher.

Labor Day weekend was filled with fun. We started off by going to the rodeo at the Twin Falls County Fair with the Ward Family. It was "Tough Enough to Wear Pink" night so Tony bought the girls pink bandanas to wear on their heads. The kids also got free horses when we entered the arena. That helped to entertain them, not to mention the donuts, cotton candy, and carmeled apples.

Cooper with his buddy Corban!

On Saturday, we drove to the South Hills and then hiked 3 miles to Phantom Falls. Here is a photo of Tony and the kids under the water fall at the end of the hike.
Saturday night, we set up our tent in the back yard, ate hot dogs and smores, and watched a movie...all six of us! The kids were in heaven!
Check out the static cling on Libby's hair!

A week or two into September Libby decided to cut her own hair. I wasn't sure whether to get mad or get the camera. What a girl!
The pile of hair and the scissors!

A side view of where she cut!

Libby with her new hair cut! She actually looks pretty cute with short hair...if only the side will grow back in.............

One of Cache and Cooper's favorite things to do is ride the motorcycle. They are amazing for their age! Everyday they ask if they can ride. We really need to move and get some land!

A huge highlight of September was when Cooper lost his first tooth! He has been waiting so long for that to happen! I love his smile!

At the end of September, Tony turned 38!

Look at all that smoke....

Look at all that fire...

Does is really take that many people to light all the candles?
