Happy Halloween

Emma did not want a kiss from Hanna!

Just thought I would share a couple of photo's from Trunk Or Treat at the YMCA last night. Girls had a wonderful time. Their favorite part was when the magician made his rabbit, Donatello, magic!

Are You Serious?

Have you ever had a day where you questioned your own intelligence? I have, but will no longer beat myself up over those thoughts. There is always someone out there a little less intelligent than I. Take for example, the following conversation I just had with a popular TV satellite service.

Me: I was just calling to let you know that I returned your equipment via UPS today.

Customer Service "Guru": So, when exactly did you send the equipment back?

Me: Oh, about 30 minutes ago.

Customer Service "Guru": Well, I don't show that we have received it yet.

Me: Are you serious?

Yes, yes he was. "Bob" from India was serious. Man, I feel like a genius sometimes.

Please Pray

One of my very best friends grandfather just passed away from cancer. This has been a very tough battle for the family, but he was a Christian so we know that we will see him again. Please be in prayer for Sandi and her family. Isn't Grandpa Frank a handsome man? We love you Sandi and will be in prayer.

A New Princess Is On Her Way Home...

As many of you know my best friend was in the process of adopting her second precious daughter from Vietnam. Since Vietnam has closed it's door to U.S. adoptions my best friends heart was broken. But out of her brokenness God has provided many new options and answers. I am so proud to announce that my new niece will be coming home from Ethiopia. We could not be more excited. An Ethiopian princess in the family. I cannot wait to hold her and tell her how special she is and how God lead us to her. Please continue to pray for Kate and her family. They are in the process up updating all of their dossier paperwork in order to switch adoption countries from Vietnam to Ethiopia. You can follow Kate's journey on her blog. Please stop by and lend your support and prayers. We love you Kate and are so glad we are on this journey with you.

And He Wore Red...

This past weekend Will was asked to dress up as Elmo for a friend's daughters 3rd birthday. He said yes! I could not believe it. Will will do just about anything to help someone out and to make a little girls birthday extra special. This includes dressing up as Elmo. Well, the birthday girl did not like Elmo/Wilmo one bit. But Emma and Hanna were totally in love. They said that it was the best part of their day. They have no idea that it was their daddy in the Elmo costume. So here is a "family" picture. Thinking of using it for Christmas cards this year! :) I did manage to talk Will out of wearing a shirt over top of the costume that said, "Tickle Me". What a crazy man. Love you Will, thanks for doing all the things no one else wants to do.

A Beautiful Weekend

We had a wonderful weekend. The past 3 weeks have been so insanely crazy for us that this weekend we had a much welcomed break, nothing to do! Oh sweet freedom. It was so beautiful out this weekend that Will and I decided to take the girls on a picnic and to the park on Saturday. They had a great time. Today I was able to get out of the house for some "girl time" and went to see the new Richard Gere movie, Nights of Rodanthe. How is it possible that that man just gets better looking with age? Anyways, great movie if you need a good cry. Just do not try to go grocery shopping when your eyes are nearly swollen shut from crying. Not a pretty sight. It was such a relaxing weekend and I feel ready to face a new week.

A Little Sunday School Lesson...

This guy is so funny! His name is Tim Hawkins and if you happen to be in the Westminster MD area he will be performing on 10/12 at Westminster Church of God. Hope you enjoy Samson and Delilah as you have never heard it before.
