6.We have great jobs that we love and have the ability to provide for our family.

5.We are healthy and together for the holidays!

4.We have wonderful friends, new and old, that encourage us, pray for us and love us unconditionally.

3. We have a beautiful son that lights up our lives, EVERYDAY!!!

2.We have a family that has provided for us and loved us through tough times this year.

1.We have a all-knowing, always present, all-powerful God that loves us and is faithful to us in our time of need

Halloween 2010

Our Halloween weekend was full of sweets, family and friends! We celebrated my dad's 60 th Birthday on Saturday (he is actually a Halloween baby). Our goal was a big trip to a lake house in Kentucky but unfortunately we were unable to narrow down a weekend so instead it was an intimate night with family around the campfire. We enjoyed chili, hotdogs over the fire, spiced cider and blueberry pie... now thats a Birthday party! HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAPE!

Halloween day was a blast! We joined our new friends, the Allen's and their extended family for a pizza party and trick-or-treating. This was the first time Garrett has really gotten into the whole experience. Garrett took on the challenge with gusto. He was tickled by the fun of running up to every house and getting candy! I borrowed a Buzz Lightyear costume from a friend; however Garrett had other ideas. He refused to put the costume on and wanted to be a train engineer instead. As a mom, I have to choose my battles and the point was to have fun! I thought it turned out pretty cute anyway!
