Awesome October

October just seemed to fly by in our household. The weather stayed so mild throughout the month and now, as we flip our calendars to November, it truly feels like Fall has arrived.

Some highlights from October include:
The announcement that Colin will be a big brother in May!

Attending the 2006 Women of Faith Conference – Contagious Joy!

“Laughter has extraordinary healing power. When confronted with life’s challenges we can choose fear or cheer. I don’t know about you, but I would rather be laughing!” –Marilyn Meberg, speaker.
What a wonderful weekend with friends, hearing amazing life stories of faith and trust, being encouraged through laughter and tears and an awesome concert with Sandi Patty. The conference will return again next October. Plan now to attend this uplifting weekend. Check this site for more info:

Sunriver Getaway

This was our fourth year to vacation in Sunriver for a 4-day escape. Once again we enjoyed beautiful, warm Fall weather … a great time of refreshment and relaxation. It’s a good time to get energized after a hectic start of a new school year. No other vacation can compare to this wonderful, restful time away.

All Hands on Deck
Walt has been racing the clock and weather to get as much accomplished on our deck as possible before winter sets in. We have been thankful for the exceptionally warm seasonal weather we had this month.
Looks like the theme of 2007 will still be “Extreme Makeover” at our house as we have the deck, remaining fence and front deck to complete. We accomplished so much this summer.

Family Cookie Day

Once again we had the whole family over for lunch and cookie decorating. Seems like each year we get more creative and detailed with our designs. We have quite a history making these pumpkin cookies and now it’s fun to share the tradition with Colin. Thanks, Barb for sharing your recipe so many years ago.

It was fun to share this holiday with our REACH group this year. We enjoyed pizza together before taking the kids out trick-or-treating. I haven’t done that in over 12 years. It was fun to share in their joy and excitement..

As I flip the calendar to November, I’m anticipating many new adventures ahead!
