Finally an Update!

It has been a while since I last posted so this one is LONG. (mainly from pictures) Let me see where to start.....the end of September Abby and I flew home once again, this time on business. My mom and dad drove us down to Las Vegas to house hunt and house hunt we did. The last day there we found an adorable little house that I fell in love with completly. Long story short, we made an offer, they chose someone else. So we have decided to put off buying a house and live on base since we will hopefully only be there for three years.
After a week in Vegas and another in Morgan, Mom, Abby and I flew back to Hawaii after a 12 hour delay! (don't worry we got vouchers, were they worth the 12 hours...NO. But hey at least we got something) Dad, Brother Matt and Uncle Merlin followed a few days later. Then it was off to the Big Island, sadly leaving Matt behind to finish Airman Leadership School. We had fun exploring the island and just being together. I think thats it in a nutshell. Enjoy the pictures, I think there's about 24 of them!

The pictures......

At our ward Halloween party. No I am NOT a lame-o, you just can't see my costume. As you can tell Abby is the witch, Matt is her black cat and I am her broomstick. My costume consisted of my brown shirt and yarn strings hanging from my knees.

Abby and me!

Abby and me at the visitor center on Mauna Kea. Elevation: 13,796 at the top, we stayed here at around 9,000 feet. It was beautiful up there looking down onto the clouds.

The West's last week of church. Aloha 'Oe West! We miss you.

Hickam hosted an Air Show sometime in September. We had fun touring the planes and watching the Thunder Birds air show. Only bad thing is that now Abby is deathly afraid of any plane flying over....I keep telling her she can't be afraid of planes if she is going to grow up on Air Force bases!
