Halloween ... a day early! ;0)

Dalton will be racing bright and early Saturday morning in the State Cross Country meet so we decided to trick or treat a day early!
Emma wanted to be Sharpay from HSM ... again!
Dalton wanted to be Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars .... again!
So in the full theme of the event of being 'simple'....... I went as 'Mom' ... with my point and shoot camera ... no one could believe it! gasp

A Sunday Afternoon well spent ......








I had heard and read a lot about this movie and when Mom and Dad offered to let the kids spend the afternoon with them after Church we knew exactly what we wanted to. This is very touching and emotional movie and so refreshing to see a movie about how marriages should be treated. I could tell you so much about it ... but you really should see it for yourself!

We think we will always remember those silly things they say ....



My Mom told me about a Grandmother of one of her preschooler's that did this and I thought it was so neat!  I started my own 'jar' when Emma was smaller and it over time got pushed out of site and out of mind.  When I ran across this article today it made me start thinking about it again and all the funny things ... especially Emma... says these days!  I could write a book on her!  

Just thought I would share!!

Congratulations to CJ and Soledad



Shannon's cousin CJ got married yesterday!  
We were unable to be with them, but we were definitely there in heart!!

I was getting Emma ready for bed Tuesday night and Shannon came bounding up the stairs grinning from ear to ear with his iphone glued to his face and said, 'GUESS WHO IS GETTING MARRIED ... TOMORROW!?'   
Shannon doesn't have a little brother, but I could have easily been fooled that it wasn't CJ when Shannon and I first started dating.  They have a bond much deeper than cousins!

The first time I met CJ was at Shannon's high school graduation .... this little boy came up to me and said, 'Are you Shannon's girlfriend?'  I wasn't really sure what to say....I had only know Shannon about two weeks and I had No IDEA who this little kid was!  ;0)  

CJ also snuck away from everyone to go with Shannon to pick up my engagement ring and of course he was a groomsman on our special day!  

We are just so happy for them!  They literally just glow when they are together!  
We wish them all the happiness in the world!!
