Halloween was a blast! Emma was a 50's girl and Brody was a little Charger. We started off with a Halloween pizza party with friends and then went around with our group of nearly 20 kids trick-or-treating! Last year the kids were kind of confused by the whole thing, but this year they had it down! SO FUN!!!

Most of the kids...

Pizza time!!

Me & my sweet Emma.

Emma with her good buddies Ian (doesn't he look thrilled?) and Kenzie.

Emma was a princess last year so we told her she had to be something different. :) She has already declared that next year she will be Aurora! These girls share names (from left to right): Ava, Emma, Emma, Ava :)
Emma and one of her best friends, Emma G.

They would storm the houses.

Our buddy Eric in all his 80's coolness.

Emma's New Love

About 8 months ago Emma began asking for a kitten.

We told her that she could get a kitten when she turned 5 and after we had bought a house, not thinking both events would happen so closely together.

Well, those two things just happened in September.

Below is Emma with her new love, her kitten (who has yet to be named...we are accepting suggestions). The kitten is a 6 1/2 week old female.

Emma is BEYOND overjoyed. I love the little thing too, she is so cute! Mark is actually really sweet with her (he picked her out). Brody thinks she's neat and Molly thinks she is the funnest "toy" we've brought home for her in a while. :)

It has been a looong time.....

....since I opened my prayer journal.

If I'm honest, probably over a year. And so many prayers have been answered (whether I liked the answer or not). Dang it! Wish I would have wrote them down in the midst of it all.

I have some things on my heart and I really want to see what God will do, how He will answer...
