Happy October!

FaithSpring Community Church Halloween Carnival 2009

October has always been a great month for our family. My husband, Stewart, and I were married on October 18, 1986, ten days before my 25th Birthday.

After our daughters were born (Lauren in January 1993) and (Sara in March 1997), we became more involved in activities in October. Between our Wedding Anniversary, my birthday and Halloween, we attended Carnivals at both churches and schools, visited pumpkin patches and corn mazes, went to Arts and Crafts Festivals and Boo at the Zoo, hosted Halloween parties and neighborhood Trick or Treating, picked out costumes at Party City and hay bales & mums at garden centers, bought tons of candy, braved Haunted Houses, spent time at the annual Arkansas State Fair and toured Magic Screams at Magic Springs amusement park in Hot Springs.

Saturday was our 28th Wedding Anniversary, so I thought I would do what I did last year at this time and share a few things with you...

  • Both of our beautiful girls are growing up and you would be so proud of them.  We have two Seniors now!  Lauren has maintained her scholarships while also working part-time teaching English to Foreign Students at the Ozark Literacy Council and now in the International Students Office at the U of A in addition to keeping up her hours and GPA.  She will graduate from college in May while Sara will graduate from Central High School after taking AP Classes, serving as President of the Young Republicans, continuing dance lessons at Shuffles and participating in FaithSpring Church youth group and active in Young Life Christian Organization.
  • The new fall TV season has started and one of our favorite new shows is NCIS:New Orleans! It stars Scott Bakula (from Quantum Leap) and features the normal NCIS characters: the attractive male & female partners; a knowledgeable Medical Examiner and her quirky assistant.

  • Halloween is on a Friday this year, Sara is dancing to the Michael Jackson hit "Thriller" at Boo in the Zoo with her class from Shuffles and Lauren is coming to visit for my birthday!

I just want to wish you a Happy October, Honey...
