Sunday - October 5, 2008

Well, things have not changed much. We bought colloidal silver (which Sharol recommended), went to see the Chiropractor (which Sheri recommended) and the DO (which Sheri also recommended). Judy now has additional chemicals to try and get down. Her cold like symptoms seem to be easing up a little, but her general malaise and nausea are still a problem. She doesn't eat much, and often does not feel well enough to take her pills. She is still feeling quite poorly and loosing weight. If things don't turn around soon, we will be compelled to believe that she is in her final descent.

The garage painting is coming along and the watermelons, tomatoes and cantaloupes are still growing. Today, since we had to be home all day, we are trying out Jason's new smoker and are cooking up three small elk roasts. Derek and Steph may be coming over for the afternoon session of conference and elk dinner afterwards. Jason may also come by.

Pictures from the "Shave Fest"

Read the September 15, 2008 post for details. Here are the pictures!

Before - Kip's Dad, Kip's Brother, Kip, Sharol, Shelly (front), Judy, Steph, Derek, Jason

Enjoy It While It Lasts - Sharol, Judy, Shelly (front), Steph

New Fashion? - Shelly really wanted to stop here! (Actually, rumor has it Shelly went first and after she was bald everyone said "Just Kidding" and started packing up to go home.)

Newer Fashion? - Sorry Stephanie... not even your smile can pull this off!

How expensive is shampoo? - Julia (Sharol's daughter) and Sharol discussing the potential money Julia could save in hair product.

Everybody's Doing It! - Sharol, Stephanie and Shelly showing just how much fun this can be.

Awwwww - Ain't she cute? - Judy sporting her new "care-free" hair style.

Living the Religion - Mom's Bishop came over to teach a lesson on eternal families. After the lesson, he announced that he would be... how shall we say... an "active" participant in the festivities. Now that's what I call living your religion: Mosiah 18:7-9

The Finished Results - Shelly (honestly, she wanted to do this, we didn't make her), Sharol, Stephanie, Judy, Jason, Jerry, Julia, the cat (his head was also shaved - Mom wasn't about to let the cat strut around the house with a full head of hair).

I "heart" M O M - You can't see it, but the cat had a "!" on his head. We are still trying to figure what this would have read if all 7 of her children had been in town.
