In October the Uintah Co. Library hosted a Jane Austen Tea. Jerry's mom Melinda does the funnest stuff there. Well, it fell on my b'day Oct. 13th, so Kasha, Drina, Shan and I went to it. We dressed up and it was a lot of  fun. They presented me with flowers! I was so surprised!
                                                Jerry's dad Doug took lots of pictures.
     Casey was so cute and she even kept the hat on for a while. Drina made all the hats for us too!
This is Jerry's mother Melinda (Drina's in laws) she made her dress and looked so cute in it. She did a slide show about Jane's life and the decorations on the walls and tables was her idea. She gave me one of the cute center pieces too, they are tea cups with flowers in them!

Time is going by so fast, I can't believe I am so behind! First off Ammon received his misson call to the Indiana-Indianapolis mission on October 18,2012 everyone made guesses of where he would go. Drina brought a big map over so we could pin point our guesses. Josh and Ammon looking at map.
Ammon and Jerry at the Vernal Temple where he entered on Nov 3,2012. Jerry was his escort. It was a very nice day. Vana &Kev, Drina, Shan & Mike, Ari, Solae' & Eric, Uncle Dan & Aunt Barbara and I were there. After the temple we all went to Farr's ice cream parlor. It was fun.
Ammons farewell was the weekend after Thanksgiving so all the kids came up for both.
                           Ammon and Mason doing some dancing to the tv at his farewell.
                         We had lots of soups, rolls and desserts. His friends came to support him!
It was also Ammons 19th and Ian's 4th b'days on the Sunday of his farewell so we celebrated the night before.

Off he goes, leaving home for 2 years to teach the gospel!

This summer 2012 we planted a garden! It was great, we had eggplant, beans, corn, potatoes,peppers,  tomatoes we grew some great varieties like pink brandy wine, and black crim, and san marzano. Doug was thrilled to get some watermelons to grow and these had yellow flesh inside and were very good, and he grew cantaloupes also. We had cilantro, lots of tall sunflowers. My flowers did well also. So here are a few pictures from our garden! Oh and the best plant of all was my huge basil, rosemary and parsley garden!!
