Happy Fall, Ya'll!

What a great time of year! We've had lovely weather and big changes happening in our lives! First off - we seem to be getting all green lights on the house (!!!) and we are set to close November 20th! (!!!) That's just 17 short days away! This afternoon, I am hoping to put in my 2 week's notice at Blake Publishing. It's been a good learning experience, but I am very much looking forward to what the next chapter might hold :) God always has the best plans! Also, I am very concerned about tomorrow's elections and what they mean for our future! I might talk more about that after we see how they go... And I'll be sure to let you know how the meeting with my bosses goes, too! In other news, last Thursday we celebrated Halloween! Wes was a swash-buckling pirate and quite handsome, if I do say so myself! And he really got a kick out of decorating our front porch! We had a jack-o-lantern on one side, spooky ghosts hanging from the eves, and a creepy sound effects mat so when trick-or-treaters arrived they'd get a little spook :) We were happy to have Mom and Dad Smith along for the fun. Grandmom handed out candy while Granddad walked the spooky streets with me while Wes trick or treated :) Wes had a great time but was really bummed there weren't more kids for him to hand out candy to :) So, here are a few pictures from the night :)

Ok... I think Wes's Costume is better than mine...

He even had a Rough and Tough parrot tattoo!

The full effect :)

The Creepy Front porch - We had 3 ghosts flying, 2 pumpkins in the window and a mysterious skeleton in the main window... Ring the door bell If You Dare!
