snippits from the fall

Rebekah got a bad case of Mono, so she spent the fall sleeping, and watching princess movies. She was sick for about 6 weeks. Some days she felt great and stayed awake playing and was able to go to school like normal, but for the better part of those weeks, she had little appetite, slept hours a day and wasn't her usual chatty bubbly self. She was sick for Halloween, so Joe pulled her in a wagon and her brothers took her bag up to the door for her. Thankfully she felt much better by Thanksgiving, and by the Christmas season we had our happy little Bekah back. The purple picture is before the mono and the picture of her in gray is about three weeks into the mono. We built some awesome forts during our spud harvest break. I cut my hair off. I celebrated my 30th birthday! Yikes! We carved some pumpkins while Grace made the most of an empty bucket. Hyrum Turned 8!!! He had a great birthday, particularly enjoying his two new BB guns. 100% Joe's idea!He looks pretty mischievous in that picture doesn't he? He is now a cub scout and was baptized the following Saturday. We are so proud of Hyrum and cannot believe how fast he has grown!
