It's Saturday and the sun never came out, so the girls stayed in pajamas all day.

Well, she's had a couple games and it turns out that she loves it. Whew!

|Not bad, Amara! See Grandma's face in the background?|

|Steve actually hit a target so he won a stick of candy.|
|New this year was the airguns. Those were pretty fun. They shot lightweight foam balls.|
|Cooks in a minute and smells SO GOOD!|
|JJ loved this bear. I think he got it at McDonalds or something.|
Lily snapped these 2 pictures when they were on their way back home and I'm glad she thought to do that because I hadn't taken any other photos.

Lily asked if she could sell hot chocolate one afternoon, and it happened to be a good time, so I agreed. I remembered selling things with my brothers or my friends to other neighborhood kids when I was a little girl and I think every kid should have that opportunity. So, I boiled some water and helped Lily set up shop. She made the sign and set the price for 50 cents.
Amara dumped in the packet.
The girls sat out there for a couple more hours until it started getting dark (sometimes manning their station and other times playing with the neighbor's kitties). Amara's job was to smile and wave at all the cars and trucks passing by.
Just as I came out to help put things away for the night I saw a black pickup truck parked in front of the girl's table and he was handing them 50 cents for a cup of chocolate. I was so touched that some stranger would take the time to stop for them. They were thrilled again.
After he drove off, I took the hot water in the house, and I came out to get more things when another truck pulled over and asked the girls for some hot chocolate. It was our new neighbor 2 doors down and his brother-in-law. I told them that I'd go get the hot water- and I rushed in the house to get it. He paid the girls all the change he had- $7.50. They gave him 4 cups of chocolate, since that's all the water we had left.
What a hauling for a few cups of cocoa! Lucky girls. Business doesn't always go that good, but for them that day, it did. Thanks to everyone who stopped by. It made 2 sweet girls very happy.
My favorite is that Amara set up her stuffed animals so they had a good view to watch the prophet speak.
What it looks like:
The TV is plugged into the computer which is streaming conference via lds.org. Amara set up directly in front of the TV with her own little desk area complete with crayons and a sturdy hard surface where she could work on her conference packet which she got from primary. Lily was at the table with hers. I'm on the couch with my notebook and Steve took the recliner for his domain.
We look forward to conference time every time it comes around. I'm so thankful that we have the technology available to hear the voice of the prophets. And I'm so thankful that we have living prophets on the earth TODAY that are able to give us God's words.

|If you're wondering where Harold's Purple Crayon went... She went trick or treating.|
The girls got 10 and a half pounds of candy total. That's a lot of poisen for growing minds and teeth! This morning they woke up and the candy fairy had swapped their candy for books and stickers. Thanks Candy Fairy!
