September Fergy Movie Fun

We haven't done regular movie madness themes since school started but I have snuk in a couple. On one Monday we watched James and the Giant Peach and the most delicious fresh peaches and cream! Phoebe loved it so much she had 4 bowls of it!
On one night we pulled out the kiddos beach towel and watched Teen Beach Movie. I wanted to serves otter pops, but daddy who was in charge that evening want feeling brave enough so instead they just enjoyed the beach movie on beach towels.
I have some fun Movie madness days planned for October so here's to hoping we get to some of them!

The Fergy Family Gets Blown Away

A couple weeks ago the Fergy Clan all gathered for our annual Fergy Photo shoot. This year Grandma Fergy chose to have teal as our color and to pose out at the Great SaltAir. It was a pretty sunny evening, however we had mini hurricane winds to be pictured in. You will note our blowing hair really shows the windy weather we were standing in. There were several occasions where we just had to turn our back to the wind and take the salt & sand pelting that was being dished out by the strong winds.
Grandma/pa Fergy & all 15 grand-kiddos (which as of last Saturday is already out of date, there are now 16)
I thought our family pictures turned out pretty  cute & you can all see their the kiddos LOVED standing in the water at the the beach-y location!
The kiddos LOVED dancing in the shallow warn water, we had to tell them several times to come back on the beach out of the water so others would get their pics done.
The kids all had a blast even though the winds raged so hard that it whirled up mini water typhoons out on the lake.
Since this was the Great Salt Lake the time the kiddos spend in the water all the salt residue water began to build up & weighed down Josh's paints until they became so heavy they kept falling down.
I thought this was a fun picture shoot because if the fun different location and the fact that we only had 2 poses each family could do so it only took about 1 hr instead of the normal marathon 2-3 hr Fergy Family photo shoots that normally happen. 
The kids had so much fun, even though I commented a few times about the strong rotten egg smell, they thanked Heavenly Father that night for getting to go to the beach and play.  I guess we should make more of an effort to go there, especially since from our new house it only took 25 minutes to get to.

Fun Times for Phoebe at Fox Hollow

Green Ribbon Week
Being in school has been truly the BEST for Phoebe, she loves every day of it, especially when there is special fun activities going on. Phoebe was excited for her first spirit/safety week. 
Each day had a theme starting off on Tuesday with Hats off to safety so Phoebe chose to wear her cowgirl hat and curl her hair, which when her sisters saw it made them then beg for the same curly lox.
On Wednesday it was walk to school but I chose not to participate in that since I figured it would take Phoebe at her pace about 1 hr to do and I was not eager to do it with 4 kiddos by myself. On Thursday it was crazy for safety so every one was to have crazy hair. I wan't sure how crazy her hair so I broke out my old 80's crimper, really I think it turned out kinda cute rather than crazy.
Cami LOVED Phoebe's hair and of course wanted the same this, looking at these little cutie's pics with crimped hair it is uncanny how much she looks like I did as a kid!

Zoo Field Trip
A couple weeks ago Phoebe's class got to go on a field trip to the zoo. She was SUPER thrilled to get to go to the zoo, but especially because she got to ride the bus to the zoo! I got to chaperon a group of 5 on this trip and it was fun to get this experience with my cutie Phoebs. 
When we were at the zoo it was a cold snap in the weather and so the zoo was pretty much empty! All the animals were out which was nice; I don't think I have ever seen a Rino so close in my whole life!
The Zoo also had the special Lego expo still going on so it was cool so see all the detailed animals built out of 1000s & 1000s of Legos! The best party of this trip is that we just barley missed getting soaked as we were leaving it started to rain.

Fox Hollow 5K
In the end of Sept Phoebe's school had it's annual PTA fundraiser with a community 5k and silent auction. I signed Phoebe, Cory & I. We actually had no intention of running, but I thought I would sign up and pay to at least show support for the school. 
When we got to the school, however, the kids all wanted to run. I put Cory's shirt on Josh and Cory wore mine and he took the 3 older kiddos "running". The group only made it about 200 ft (1/2 way around the round about) before they decided their hand were frozen and wanted to go home.
When we got home we warmed up the gang with blankets, a movie, & hot cocoa (which they each spilt only a 1/2 dozen or more times :( )
This new school adventure has been a lot of fun so far, hopefully Phoebe will continue to LOVE all her new adventures she will continue to have at Fox Hollow.
