October 2012

October brought our first visitors, and second, third, and fourth.  We are very happy that so many people are willing to make the trip down to see us, that we are only a drive away, and that our guest room is getting some use.
Our first visitors were the Fishers.  Tiffany and Terry were down for a wedding and made some time to see us.  We had a great time visiting, eating and drinking and as usual it went by too fast.

While Tiffany and Terry were here the Eagle Fire Department had an open house.  We couldn't pass up the chance to see the fire trucks up close, after that we checked out the Eagle Saturday Market.

Our next guests included Serenity and three of the kids.  They had a break at school and decided to spend some of it with us.  It was great having the cousins together again, and to have Serenity around to help cook and sew Annabelle's Halloween costume.
A day after Serenity took off Sam's parents arrived.  We enjoyed showing them around our new home including Sam's office and the Boise Market.  We also managed to get some work done, putting in some shelves in the garage so we are now able to park in it.   Since they just celebrated their anniversary a week earlier "we" (mostly Sam) cooked them a five course dinner to celebrate.   In all the excitement we had over the weekend  I didn't take any pictures.

We still managed to have some fun between visitors.  With two trips to pumpkin patches; one with MOPS one with Annabelle's school, a pajama story time and trick-or-treating at Sam's office we kept plenty busy.

My parents made a trip down the last weekend of the month.  Again we had a good time showing them around the area and just spending time together.  Sam and I even managed to get out of the house alone for a few hours.

We ended the month with some Halloween fun.  We had mummy hot dogs for lunch enjoyed a Halloween movie, and had a jak-o'-lantern pizza before heading out into our neighborhood for some trick-or-treating.  It was a great end to one fun-filled month.
