The Huckleberry Dowdle family tradition!!! (September 2008)

The Huckleberry Dowdle family tradition!!! (September 2008)
I thought this would be interesting to post. The Dowdle family has a tradition that we all love to do on special occasions it's with very tastey delicious Huckleberrys. Our Grandpa Dowdle (on our Dad's side) and some other family members will go to Idaho to go pick the Huckleberrys. When they find alot of Huckleberrys they will bring them home and our Grandpa will make very good tastey shakes out of them!!! Then our Grams Dowdle will make jam, syrup, or cobbler out of them it really does taste sooo good. The Huckleberrys are also from the state of Montana where u can get lots of great treats made out of Huckleberrys. If anyone is interested and wants to know where the location in Idaho to go pick or wants to know more details I would be happy to help!!!:)

Christmas 2010

Here are some very fun pictures from before Christmas, Christmas Day, and after Christmas. Enjoy!!!:)
What we did before Christmas was: A Journey Through Bethlehem Christmas festival. The festival was located in a very cool town called Huntsville TX. Not too far from where we live. The festival was really a pretty neat festival. There were people dressed up as characters telling the story about our Savior's birth. They did a pretty neat job. After the story, we went in a little farm building where we came across real Camels!!!:) The Camels were sooo cute, and fun to see. At the festival they had other fun things too like: Wedding dance, tasting really good bread, seeing more animals, pottery making, basket making, a symbol stamp, there was a man telling the Hanukkah story which was pretty interesting, they had other things as well but we didn't know they did. It was really fun to go there, and being there really made me feel like being back in time during our Savior's birth. The festival was a fun experience.:) Then after the festival we went to Ihop for dinner, the food there was sooo yummm!!!:)
On a Thursday night was my little brother's Jakes 4th grade Christmas program. His grade put on an awesome show!!!:) They sang cute Christmas songs, and did a Winter Wonderland with black light, and they wore white gloves, and did cute hand movements for the song. I've never seen anything like that:) The next week on Friday was the Orney awards with my Singles ward Institute, and it was sooo much fun!!!:) What the Orney awards is u decorate a ornament, and make a ugly sweater. The day before the awards my friend Kat, and I made ornaments. After we were done me, and Kat took our ornaments to the Institute building to take a picture of us holding our ornament so the judges can tell who's is who. The ornament I made was a Elvis Presley ornament:), and my friend Kat made a really cool stick bug out of a ornament. (Dead of course:)) She saved the bug for a long time. Anyway she colored it with nail polish in her A&M school colors. Kat really did an awesome job!!!:) I thought it was really creative:). Then on Friday the night of the awards, Kat came over early and we decorated our sweaters. The Orney awards was sooo much fun!!!:). We all had a very good time:). The food was gr8, the musical numbers were wonderful, and it was fun to see everyone:) We also liked everyone else's ornaments, and sweaters too:). Me, and Kat did not win;( but we were both nominated:) for both ornament, and sweater:)
On Saturday that very same weekend, I went with my 2 friends Suzanne, and Tracy to Central Park in College Station to see the lights. We had sooo much fun there!!!:) What we did was: At the park they had free hot chocolate, and cookies, some entertainment, a light village, a dizzy tree, hay ride, and of course Santa. What I mean by dizzy tree is u go under a very tall lighted tree, u spin yourself, and then look up at the lights. It really does make u dizzy!!!:O After the lights we headed back to Suzanne's place to meet up with our other friend. We watched this really cute Christmas movie called A Boyfriend for Christmas. It really is a cute movie, I recommend it:), and It was also filmed in Utah!!!:) We also had very yummm snacks, Suzanne made a really yummm Wassail drink, and Tracy made a very yummm cake.
Then a few days before Christmas Eve my friend Kat, and I we had a little Christmas party:). Where we each shared some very good yummm snacks, and we spent the whole day watching Christmas movies. We watched 5 Christmas movies!!!:) We both had sooo much fun pigging out, and watching fun holiday movies:). Then after Trevor came here to Texas a week before Christmas!!!:) We had sooo much with him:). What we did while Trevor was here was: Went Caroling at the Bryan TX hospital with some of our other friends on Christmas Eve. We all had a blast:), went out to eat a few times, before Christmas Eve Trevor went with me, and Kat to our Singles ward, and it was really fun:), after Christmas we did family pictures in a cool old historic town in Bryan TX, saw the new Narnia movie, went mini glow-in-the-dark golfing at the Grand Station, and played at this really pretty park called Oak Tree in College Station on New Years Day:) So, yeah, it was a really fun Christmas season:)very special:). I hope everyone had a gr8 Christmas,is doing well, and having a gr8 new year!!!:)

HaLlOwEeN 2010

Hello everyone,
Here are some very fun Halloween pictures we took over Halloween weekend and day, and I hope u guys enjoy them!!!:) Over Halloween weekend here in College Station, there were sooo many fun Halloween activities, and one of them was the Boofest we went to on Friday, and it was a blast!!!:) At the Boofest, they had a lot of fun things like: Trick-or-treating, face painting, games, prizes, and costume contest. There were also a lot of cute kids dressed in their costumes:) It was really fun watching them:) Jakob our little brother he was the Mad Hatter for Halloween, and Haley my sister was the one who did his costume looking sooo dang awesome!!!:) A lot of people at the Boofest loved Jakes costume, he was a big hit. Some people wanted to take pictures with him, others asked him if he could do the Futterwaken dance. Haley did a really neat job with his costume. I really did thought Jake looked exactly like Johnny Depp!!!:) We think Haley should go into costume designing because she did a gr8 job with Jakes costume!!!:) After the Boofest we went and ate at Fazoli's. At the restaurant, there were some guys dressed up, and they also loved Jakes costume and wanted a picture with him:) Then there were also some girls there too who also wanted to get a picture with Jake. On Saturday: We carved pumpkins, got some things to decorate our car trunk, so we could get ready for the Trunk-or-treat with our parents ward, and the other ward. Which was also a really fun night!!!:) It was really fun to see everyone, and to see all of their cute kids dressed in their costumes:) In our parents ward there was a very cute family, the Crawfords, they all dressed up like The Incredibles:) They looked really cute!!!:) Then that night before going to bed, we played some games, watched Dracula, (the old film), and GHOST. Halloween day: Every Halloween, we have made it a tradition to always watch Sleepy Hallow. It is one of our very favorite Tim Burton film. A couple of years ago when Sleepy Hallow came out, Halloween day was actually the first time we all watched it. So, ever since then we decided to make it a tradition to watch Sleepy Hallow every year for Halloween:) We also had some fun food, snacks, and Witche's Brew to enjoy, while watching the movie. Halloween this year was sooo much fun!!!:) I really do hope all of u are doing well, and hope u all also had a very fun, safe, Halloween!!!:)

2. She was always sooo kind, Loving, caring, generous, considerate to others, respectful, never was shy, always has Loved the Gospel and kept the Commandments
3. I always Loved her calling me honey
4. She was a really gr8 cook. My favorite dish was her Irish meal. She got the recipe from when our Grams and Gramps were in Ireland on their mission
5. You could always count on Grams for anything if u needed her or help. She would never let u down

Here is one of my fun favorite memories with Grams
A long time ago after I graduated and had my spine surgery done and fully recovered. Me, Bayley H Christiansen, and my Grams and Gramps we went on a very fun cruise!!!:) Our ship was docked at Long Beach California, and the places we went to were Catalina Island and Ensenada Mexico.
