Corey in India - Week 3

Here is Corey's latest video - this one made me laugh. If any of you have had experiences in foreign tourist market places and have been attacked, you'll find this fun too.

Corey in India - Week 2

Here are three more video recordings from Corey's second week in India (not the most exciting footage, but just if your interested):

First Annual Hibbert Halloween Party!

Grant has been the fatherly figure while Corey's been
gone in India. He was even nice enough to put on the
Darth Vader costume for the kids (it's quite the
process putting it on, plus the leather body suit
gets very very hot and sweaty). Thanks Grant!

P.S. Nice sneakers, Darth!

Joe as the Jedi Knight Obi Wan Kenobi

Melodie as Snow White

Ethan as the Karate Kid

Hyrum as a... Um, he's dressed as...
well, I guess he's a barefoot pajama-wearing
"Superman-Power Ranger" playing badminton?

Tiffanie as a BYU Cougar, Abigail as herself,
and Corey dressed as a cordless phone.

Yorktown, Virginia

Corey and the kids looking out to where the York River empties into the Chesapeake Bay.

Last week I finished reading Victory at Yorktown: The Campaign That Won The Revolution by Richard M. Ketchum. It was a very good read, a historical narrative that I recommend to any history enthusiast (...or aspiring history buff like myself). Last year on 21 October 2006, when we were living in Virginia, we were able to go to Yorktown on the 225th anniversary celebration of the siege where Cornwallis surrendered in October 1781. Here are some pictures of our visit there last year:

Ethan, Melodie, and Joseph posing with some of the
American Patriots who fought for the Glorious Cause.

Oh dear... Joseph seems to have some loyalist sympathies - He's with the Redcoats!
They all said "God Save the King" instead of "cheese" when I took the picture.

Wesley by the York River with the Godspeed ship behind him,

Seven Siblings

Welcome home from Portugal, Grant!
...and since Camilla's in town to see him, it looks like a perfect opportunity to take some quick family pictures! Clockwise from top left corner (oldest to youngest): Camilla Jane, Tiffanie Lee, Neil Mark, Jerusha Lin, Patrice Estelle, Rebekkah, and Grant Moroni.

Corey in India

Corey, my adorable husband, promised he'd never leave me again after his 10 day trip to Korea in July 2005 right after Wesley was born. But on October 15th I bid him adieu again (and again I was home with a newborn) as he left me for his longest trip yet, this time to India! Yippie! Corey didn't have that country's visa in his passport yet! (His passport is quite impressive to regular folks, but just up to par for him and his sibling's standard...they've been to every continent except Antartica) . When we picked up his visa I could tell he was excited - so excited that he had to show me visa page of his passport through the car window before he could open the door and sit down. He's excited! So Corey left for India on Monday morning on October 15th at 8 a.m. and he will be back on November 3rd at 11 p.m. So that means we're over half way done, I think I'll survive.

Corey was sad he'd miss Halloween, but we'll take pictures. The kids might go trick or treating with friends or family. If I send them with friends, I'll have an impossible time getting them all home and to bed for school the next day. But it's only Halloween once a year, right? It will be okay if they are tired and sick from too much sugar at school the next day, I'm sure the teachers will be expecting it.

Things are okay here, night time is the most chaotic trying to get all the kids to bed. Tonight some of the neighborhood kids were doorbell ditching us, so my crew thought that was fun and were all camping out in the front room so they could catch them in the act. Then they wanted to go out and join the fun "Can we PLEASE go doorbell ditching? Please?! Please?! Please!?" but mean mother that I am said "No - it's time for bed. You can go doorbell ditching tomorrow when you get home from school." "...but we haven't read scriptures yet!" so we'd read a little, then the doorbell would ring and you'd think someone had yelled "FIRE!" cause they all jump up and head for the door. Hyrum cries if someone else answers it if he's on his way to get it. It's so funny how they act, I remember being there with my siblings. Kids are so fun
