332 Catching Up

Today I stopped by to visit an old friend. We had a great time visiting, it's so easy to pick up right where we leave off, no matter how much time as passed. I also got to meet her new sweet baby boy. He's waving his little foot "hello!"

331 Photo Shoot

I shot pictures for a friend's family tonight. I had a blast because they are such a fun family! We hit up Old Town Scottsdale and tried some fun shots under the moon and Christmas lights. I LOVE how they all turned out!

330 Mommy Day

My mom taught the lesson in Relief Society in her ward today, so I ventured up to sit in on it. Afterwards, we grabbed lunch at Jalapeno's and just enjoyed a nice afternoon together.

I miss her so much and am so thankful for the time we get to spend together!

329 All Together Now

Well, I tried to get a photo of all of the kids together.
This was as close as I got.
Little miss just doesn't like having her picture taken.
But hey, they're all in it, and you can see their faces for the most part. 
Twenty years from now, it will be such a treasure!!

328 Twinners! (sort of)

Today we enjoyed Thanksgiving #3 with the LT's mom's family. The food was delish as always!! The DQ and her grandma were thinking alike when they got dressed today!

327 Giving Thanks

Today we were able to sit down and enjoy a meal with both my side of the family, and the LT's. It was great being at my mom's and visiting with cousins. It was a small gathering, but I love my family and have much to be thankful for.

326 Cousins

The LT's cousins came in from Colorado for Thanksgiving. Bean has sure enjoyed playing with the girls. It has been super for her to have kids closer to her age to play with!

325 Surprise!!

Tomorrow is a big birthday for the LT's step-mom. Tonight we surprised her with a huge party! She had no idea it was coming. It was a fun time. The LT's dad, sister, and step-sister really went all out for a phenomenal bash!
(and I'm so glad it's over and now I don't have to be careful about what we talk about!)

324 Scottsdale

We haven't had a car to use everyday like we did last year, so we are getting around any way we can. Today, the LT and I walked to the mall a mile away. I love that mall and miss it so much! I never even bought that much there, but it is just a fun place and as a family we hung out there a lot.
We got a close up look at this new condo development going in as we walked home. There was an old Spanish-style apartment complex that sat vacant for years here before. They recently tore it down and put this up.
It is a wild looking building, but I really love it! And it is a definite improvement over what was there before! I sure love this town.

323 Evening Walk

The LT and I took a walk tonight after eating waaay too much again. We passed by the school that I taught at for two years before resigning to move to Georgia. 
Over the past year and a half, it has been scraped and rebuilt. This is a shot of the playground from the street. My classroom used to sit right in the middle of this field.

322 Night of the Living Dead

Ok, so not really. I am alive.
It was close for a little bit though.
(not really)
We spent the day at the LT's mom's visiting with family. I spent a lot of time on the couch, but am feeling better now.
I certainly enjoyed the sunset this evening!

321 SVDD

(same view, different day)
Still sick.
Tonight, it's Twilight.
I'm so over this.

320 Ugh

This is my view tonight:
I am flat in bed. 
I'm the third person in this household to get this stomach bug and not happy about it.
So I am in bed watching Harry Potter praying no one else is subjected to this!!

318 Yuuuu-um!

We hit up our favorite Mexican place tonight... It may not be the best ever, but we've been eating here for twenty years! (That makes me sound really old!)
We love their salsa and home made chips, especially their flour tortilla chips! The LT was smart enough to ask for a basket of just the flour ones.
SO delish!!!

317 Sud Run

Auntie E signed the kiddos up for a Sud Run that her friend's husband had organized. They had an obstacle course that involved a large pit full of suds. They had a great time. Bean especially loved the bubbles. She was soaked from head to toe! (This is outfit #2)
We are so loving being here!!

314 More Good Friends

I took some family pictures for our good friends today, and the girls came along. We wanted to get a photo of all of the kids since they like to play together. Also, that little blonde guys is in love with the DQ, so we had to get one of them together. We will miss this sweet family so much!!

313 Girls' Night!

As much as I have complained about living in Columbus, I can't complain about the great friends I have met here. I know all of these dolls from church, and they are all army wives as well. I feel like I've known them forever!! Two of us are moving on soon, so we had one last get together. We had a lot of fun chatting and being silly. I will certainly miss them, but I know I will see them all again!!

312 Busy Bee

Man, I have been busy with photos!! It's been great, but my bottom is sure sore for sitting at the computer for hours!! Today I got them all done and delivered. Whew!

311 VOTE!

The girls are getting all caught up in the election madness. They even tried to make me choose between the two of them!!!

310 Love

The leaves seem to have changed overnight. 
They are really quite breathtaking. 
I prefer them on the trees however... they are not as magical to me when they are blowing all over the ground.

309 Bittersweet

Today I was released from my calling as the Relief Society president in my ward. I have loved serving the sisters and have learned so much about myself, service, and how much the Lord loves each and every one of his children. I had to pass my key on to the new president as well. I am certainly glad not to have that responsibility on my shoulders as we are preparing to move and return home for Thanksgiving, but I will treasure the memories of this past year.

308 Temple Trip

Now that the DQ is 12, she is able to do work in the LDS Temple. 
Today was a youth temple trip and so the LT volunteered to drive up to Atlanta and help out.
It was a great day for them to spend some time together, and a beautiful and spiritual experience for the DQ!

307 False Start

The LT was tasked to take some photos of a large re-enlistment ceremony today, so he asked if I would come help out. I loaded up Bean and we headed down to his "office" at building 4. Once we got there however, the LT sent us away. Apparently, the local news had gotten wind of it and came out. There were lots of big cameras and other people covering it, so we were off the hook.
I did snap this gorgeous shot of things before they got started though!

306 Glow Show

The girls are having fun with their left-over glow sticks.
Tonight they put on a dance show for me.
