October is coming to an end and it seems like it just got started! Our life and schedules seem to be so crazy this time of year (or an time for that matter). We had a great conference weekend drive to Mirror Lake and saw some beautiful fall colors. Attempted to do family pictures but Brook was mre interested in running around and picking up leaves, rocks, twigs and getting dirty than anything else. It was a great day we spent together. My step-dad has been in the hospital the majority of this month, hopefully he will get to come home sometime this week, it was a rough time for him and pretty scary for all of us. It really makes you think about your loved ones and that every moment of every day is so precious.
For the last two weeks I have enjoyed a much needed break from school and made lots of crafty things, halloween wreath, painted pumpkins with twine, BOO blocks, trick or treat pumpkins, count your blessings board, family home evening clipboard, decorated clipboard. I will have pictures up in a few days. Cassie and I had fun, she is a great help and loves to craft along with me! Brook had a great time re-arranging my craft room supplies what a great little helper (our motto - can't find it look low and in every container and even in the trash can) :)
