It's been a fun crazy past few days!
My blog friend Lauren came all the way from Florida to visit some friends, and I was able to meet her for dinner Thursday night. We became friends through the blog world when Reese was born but had never actually met in real life.
I was so excited and had looked forward to meeting her for months! She convinced me to join Twitter and helped me get set up. Hillary and Niki helped too because I need a lot of it. ; )
Last night I went to our small group's pumpkin carving contest. This was at least our sixth year to do this, and it's one of my favorites. I always get so tickled seeing everyone's pumpkins.I went the easy route this year, but this owl was too cute. I think we've gotten a little lazy. ; ) The girls would rather just talk and eat without kids than carve pumpkins outside in the cold. Ha!

Our good friends Barry and Morgan and their three boys also spent last night with us. We had so much fun! It was much more calm than I expected. Maybe we should have three more boys. Completely kidding.
Barrett, Zach, & Branton
Colson decided to try on his Halloween outfit. ; )
Being a turtle is perfect for him since he is still crawling!
This morning we went to Asa's 1st birthday party. Everything was perfect for his day.

Hope you are enjoying this fall weekend!
When they walk through the Valley of Weeping, it will become a place of refreshing springs. The autumn rains will cover it with blessings.
