I'm Thankful for.....

my husband, my friends, my family, good health, being able to own my own home, my loveable dog, my faith in Jesus Christ and my ability to turn anything into something to laugh about, even when it's bad. Oh yea, I am also thankful that Dennis and I are finally taking our honeymoon and that we leave in less than 10 hours for Mexico!!!! Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Halloween...peanut butter jelly style!

Group Pyramid ----->

Costume Winners

That's right! We attended our first ever Halloween Party this year at the Neals. There were 52 couple there, it was a theme party, things that go together and yes we went as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. We won third place for best costume. We were beat out by a fly and fly swater and a princess and her frog. We went on a scavanger hunt around Oswego and had an absolute blast! Here is a preview of some of the pictures from the night, still waiting on some more froma friends camera.
