I found this costume for Mikaila in Modina Ohio during our travels with Mikael at a second hand shop and for $5.99 I couldn't pass it up. Mikaila was unsure about the costume and didnt want to wear it until she looked at herself in the mirror and then...she wanted to wear it all the time she must've thought she looked at cute as I did. Halloween night she was being silly and I could not get her to stand up straight and just let me get one picture. She can be so dramatic sometimes. We went trick or treating with my niece and nephew Bailey and Brock who are 1o and 11. She wanted to be just like them carrying her own candy and walking to each house by herself. I know she didnt know why all these stangers were giving her candy but she didnt mind it either. I just like having an excuse to go myself!
One of the many dramatic poses on the stairs
I guess the costume was too heavy for her to lift her head
and shes off, ready to get some candy

But for some strange reason tonight as I am reading everyones blogs and learning about their lives and what is going on them. I am overcome with sadness. I miss my life.
The life of my house, my bed, my tub (have you seen my tub) my husband, my ward, my friends. All little things that I have taken for granted in the past. We have been away from Oregon now for three months and seven days. Somedays I just want to go home. But dont get me wrong we have had a lot of fun visiting family and friends here in Utah and seriously some days I dont know what I would do without them. But tonight I am just sad...

Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall
Our Nations Capitol
For those of you that have never been to Washington D.C. I highly recommend going. I wish we would have been stuck here instead of NYC for a whole week. There is so much to see and do. This was the best place we visited along our travels with Mikael....by far!!
I will definitly be going back, some day soon. I have always wanted to see the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall. I am always very moved when I see it and to be able to see it in person was very emotional for me. I dont know anyones name on it but just the fact that so many people died for this country and continue to sacrifice their lives for this country and our Freedom is a blessing. I am very honored to be an American and live in the USA. That is something I take for granted and being in D.C. reminded me of how far our nation has come. You dont have to be patriotic just on July 4th!

There are a lot of building in that city~that is for sure!!
A pillar of light
young Joseph in
a grove of trees
Found out when he was
on his knees
His Father in Heaven cared.
So I gathered leaves for my mom and me and we are making momentos from this breathtaking experience. I hope that if you ever travel through Palmayra NY you take the time and visit the Sacred Grove...
