November 2013

November started on a sad note. Uncle Lonnie, (pictured here on the right side of the picture), passed away on October 29, 2013, about 1 1/2 years after his sister Myrna.
His services were beautiful, and there were many family & friends there. 

Not to overshadow the funeral, but this was also the same time our family had seen the new headstone for Myrna, which was just placed there a few weeks before Lonnie's funeral. They are buried near each other at the Bedford cemetery. 
Myrna & Lonnie's siblings: Duane, Marilyn, Spencer, & LaRon at the luncheon.
I will miss Lonnie and his sense of humor, his kind smile, and even his short temper. ;)

On November 13, my dad & I went on the last horse ride of the season. This time up Millcreek canyon. My dad also gave the trailer a makeover. It used to look like this:
& now it looks like this:
It also has a re-inforced floor since Rosey almost broke through it last year.
We tried Thaynes canyon, but couldn't go as far as we'd liked, because of ice & snow. It was a fun ride anyway. Nice & steep, and a good workout for the horses.

November 20 was crazy hair day at school...

And Thanksgiving was spent at my parent's house this year. But I forgot my dang camera! So I just stole this one pic from my mom's phone. It was a good Thanksgiving, with yummy food & the whole family was there.

On November 30, we had a baby shower for my sister Season, who had her first baby girl, after 4 boys! Here she is with some of her childhood friends. :)

And November, of course, is "no shave Movember", which Kevin participated in this year. 
Here he is on November 5,

His brothers also participated during the month, and they wanted pictures taken before they shaved all of it off.
