div style="width:480px;text-align:right;">I can't believe how fast this month has gone by! During half of November we went to California and had a great trip visiting with as many family and friends as we could possibly squeeze in to every second of the day. There's so much to say about this trip but I am going to let the pictures do the talking....

catch up time!

Oh wow, I'm so embarrassed that it's been so long since I've updated our blog!!!! So much has happened in the last few months. although now that I think about it and reflect over the last few months I have to say we are so incredibly blessed that we have been busy! It's kind of insane to think just 2 short years ago when we moved here we had no friends and nothing much to do in our spare time but explore this new city all on our two years later our schedules are booked with playdates, lifegroups, birthday parties and the list goes on and on.
I'm going to try and play catch up now and start with our Halloween pictures from this year. We hosted our second annual Halloween neighborhood party at our house and the kids had a blast. We had a potluck in our garage while the kids played outside and then we all went together in a big group trick or treating door to door. Layla could not have been prettier as a princess, "Cinderella" actually, and Blake was a chicken. He was a chicken by default because I scored the costume at a consignment sale for about $3, and I figured it was the last year where I could choose his costume without him resisting. We had a great Halloween.
