Halloween 2014

So much fun to have Chris home for Halloween this year.  Only 2 kiddos went trick or treating since Luke has reached the age that he is too big to dress up.  He stayed back and helped Chris hand out the candy.  
Carving pumpkins in our summer clothes!!!

Cutest puppy!

 Ready for a 1950's Sock Hop!

Alice in Wonderland

Spent the morning with these lovely ladies at the Christian Youth Theaters' Production of Alice in Wonderland.

October Days

A quick look at the everyday this past October.   Hannah did a study of apples for her school work and we made an apple pie from scratch together.  She was so happy in the kitchen with me.  And she just couldn't wait until the pie was done baking!!!

Slumber party with our favorite "cousins", the Smiths.  

Pool P.E. day with our dear friends the Schneider's.  Yep, it was 85 in October and we went swimming.  Outside.  Have I said how much I love living in Southern California?!??!!

Little miss loves going to get a hair cut.  

Kelly and I were able to have a girls' weekend away at another Beth Moore Living Proof live.  Such a huge blessing to spend this time with her.  Chris was in San Francisco for Fleet Week this weekend, so Mike stepped up and took all the kids!!!  Bless him.  
And on a side note, we got to meet with Beth Moore, again!  Amazing!

There we are sitting next to Beth.  She loves Jesus so much and I have learned so much from her over the past 15 years.  What a blessing to get to tell her in person how thankful I am for her and her ministry.

Chris and Keith, his best friend from childhood.  Keith and his family came to see Chris while he was in SF.  They had a great day together.  And as much as Chris dislikes this uniform, I think he looks so handsome.  Love my Marine all decked out!!!

Beautiful Day for a Hike


We set out to find some Fall like temperatures when the highs were still in the 80's mid October.  Chris found the perfect spot at Palomar Mountain.  Only about an hour from home, this hiking spot brought us 60 degree weather and some changing leaves.  Exactly what we were looking for on this gorgeous Saturday.  Not to mention some wonderful family time which is my favorite.
