Festival of Colors

Every year at the end of March, the Hare Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork have a "Holli Festival", which we all call "The Festival of Colors". I guess they believe that there was a witch lady that used to kill children, so every year they burn a witch (we are standing in front of in the picture top right) and while the witch burns, people dance around it while throwing colored flour at each other. It is a lot of fun. There are hundreds of people there and it gets real dirty. This was my second year going and I brought Jordan and Trever with me (friends from work) and I brought my cousin Lauren with me. It is quite the experience as you can see from the pictures. Its funny cause most of the people there don't believe in their religion, they just go cause it's fun to get covered with color. :o)

Family Photo Shoot

For Thanksgiving this year, the whole family came to Utah. Well, I guess half of us are already here. It was great to have everyone here. They put me in charge of the family picture since we needed to update. The last picture we had together did not have Billy, Sierra or Asher. I told everyone what colors to wear and then picked the park in my back yard as the place to take our picture since it was one of the only places that had fall leaves left. It turned out great. And it helps that Dan is such an amazing photographer. Just love the pictures. Too bad they will be outdated again once Chad gets married and then again when Kristy has her baby and then again when Lori has her baby. Maybe next Christmas we will have another photo shoot. ha ha.
