Only in Teton Valley will you find a cow in your backyard!

We went out our front door on Saturday and guess what we found? A herd of cows coming fast into our yard. Colby herded them out of our yard into an empty field by our house, so far so good. Well, we went out into our backyard a little while later and there was one cow in our yard and another on its way into our yard. It was so funny, I was just a little worried though that we would end up with all that herd of cows in our back yard so Colby chased them out. I just wish I would have had my camera then because its not very often you find a cow in your backyard!

Happy Birthday Russell

Russell celebrated his 52nd birthday this month. We had cake and ice cream at a Rook party we attended on the Saturday before his birthday. The cake was Grandma Munson's really yummy lemon cake, Russell's favorite. On Monday, we met Brittany in Rexburg and went to dinner on his birthday. It was fun to be together and we had a nice little visit with Brittany that night. Happy birthday Honey!!!

Wedding update, or no date...

I almost can't believe I am posting this but Brittany and Gabe have decided not to get married. It is kind of crazy when I think of all the letters and packages she sent him on his mission and how anxious she was for him to get home. They are just not happy together like you should be when you are engaged so I am proud of her for recognizing she needed to do something different. Just wanted everyone to know.

Sort of after the fact but this is a real tearjerker!

If you know our family you know Colby has been dating Jim since February 2007. They are pretty close and spent lots of the last couple of months together. I asked him one day if he thought they should quit being together so much before he leaves so it wouldn't hard for them and he said no, they were going cold turkey. It was more like a bawling, really sad, cold turkey! He went into the MTC on October 15th and these photos are from October 14th. He left our house to get set apart for his mission and his family left for Provo after that. There were two really sad kids here when that all happened! It was even really sad for me. The good new is that he loves the MTC and is loving learning the Spanish language. Jusy thought you might like to know.....
