Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Almost Halloween

We had a fun and busy weekend. On Friday night we carved pumpkins with Steve and Trinity. Trinity gets credit for the expert carving on the white "pumpkin." The rest of us are amateurs.

We went the the REI "garage sale" (they sell overstocked or returned items) on Saturday morning and got this great backpack for when Clara grows out of her Baby Bjorn. It is a bit too big for her now, but will be great in a few short months.
Here is a sneak preview of Clara's Halloween costume... she makes a pretty cute bunny, if I do say so myself. This is a quick photo taken at our church Fall Festival, which I was in charge of and which was CRAZY (does anyone know how to get chili stains out of cream-colored tablecloths???), so there was no time for careful photo shoots. We'll do some better photos later on this week.
Candy companies sure know how to market to children. Clara has never had candy and doesn't even know what it is, but she wants it because it has bright, pretty packaging. Here she is reaching with all her might.
Does she look guilty, or what?
Hope you all have a fun Halloween!

6 Years

Saturday was our 6th wedding anniversary. 6 years already??? Time flies when you are having a good time.
We try to go to the temple on our around this date each year... it is fun to see the other wedding couples and reminisce.
On Saturday evening, Greg planned our celebratory date. Our friends, the Horrances (Natalie Dorrance and David Harris) babysat Clara (THANK YOU). We went to dinner at Ganache. I had shrimp and grits (am I a true Southerner or what?) and Greg ordered the same thing he does every time we go to a fancy restaurant... a hamburger.
Afterwards we went contra dancing. Sorry, no photos. We had never been before, but it was tons of fun. We're willing to try it, again, if anyone wants to join us.

Bobcats vs Heat

This last Saturday night our friends invited us to join them and go to a NBA game. Greg really loves basketball and Nicolle was excite to see Shaq. When we got to the game, Nicolle's first words were, where is Shaq. All she had to do was look for the biggest body out on the court. Clara was not quite sure about the loud noise and the scoreboard. In fact, she was terrified of the scoreboard. She saw the different advertisements on it and broke into tears. She did settle down and got so used to the noise and activities she fell asleep. It was a fun night and enjoyed watching the basketball game.
