We had quite a week of visitors recently.  My parents came for 5 days and then Brian’s grandmother and her cousin Ruby came for 3 days. 

We took my parents to Blue Jay Point Park – ate a picnic, hiked to the lake, and played on the playground and field.

We also went to Hillridge Farm for some hayrides, getting pumpkins, going down a big slide.  The kids had a good time!  We enjoyed our visit!

It’s Fall!

Hi there – Just thought I would post an update from NC!  I am so glad it is fall now and there is promise of cooler weather.  I absolutely love fall – it is my favorite season.  I love the smells of pumpkin and spice, vanilla, and nutmeg.  I love the trees changing colors.  I love that there are finally good shows on TV again to watch.  I love that my birthday is in the fall.  I love the yummy foods.  I love the colors and the decorations.  I love that we will go to Texas for two weeks over Thanksgiving.  So…what have we been doing.

We have gotten really involved in our church.  Brian is doing a men’s bible study there and his really pumped about the book of Revelation.  I am a discussion group leader for our MOPs group there this year and Lilly is in AWANAS.  We have made some really great friends there already, genuine friendships. 

Hudson and Lilly love their school.  They have great teachers and some great kids in their classes.  Lilly is enjoying dance as well.
