I know...I has been a RIDICULOUSLY long time since I have blogged, but trust me, it is not because I haven't wanted to!  'Swamped' doesn't begin to cover what we have been since school has started this year, but hopefully, I'll be able to catch up.  We had a great Halloween weekend!  Jakob was decided on his costume month ago.  It was really fun to try and fit Lily into his scheme since she doesn't care still.  I know that those day are coming to an end!  So, we had Mario and Baby Toadstool this year.  We decided to take a cue from the youth at our church and 'reverse trick-or-treat' this year.  With the craziness of our schedule this fall, we have been blessed with friends and family who have loved us, covered for us, helped us, and just plain put up with us!  It was a really great time hopping from house to house to say, "Thanks!"
