October 2011

Here is October...
Grandma and Grandpa Christensen came to visit and we took them to the Johnson Space Center.  It was the first time we had gone on the bus tour, it was alot of fun!

The kids were very interested in the shuttles!

Cool pic of the kids with a rocket of some sort.

This is the building where they store the Saturn Five.

Thomas standing behind an engine on Saturn Five.

Abby behind an engine.  She was a little freaked out and wanted Daddy to hurry and take the picture because she was scared it was going to start and she would go up in flames!!

We have been trying to get some good pictures of the dogs, but they are not so cooperative.  Above is Luke and below is Leia.

This picture should be horizontal... oh well.

Abby loves to play for us, she made a concert poster and puts it on the cabinet and we all sit in chairs behind her and listen to what she has learned lately!

While we were cleaning a cemetery for a Stake service project, Thomas dug up this turtle.  We kept it for a few days and then set it free.

Thomas and Luke playing on the floor.
