Goodbye, Hello, and Halloween

I am so far behind that I thought I would do somewhat of a picture catch up. Starting with saying goodbye to our awesome neighbors the Adam's.
Here is Elle, Amber, and Abby giving each other goodbye hugs.

The whole crew (almost): Elle, Isaac, Nathan, Abby and Amber

It was hard to say goodbye to a lot of people in St. George and move away from all that we knew and were used to. I must say that St. George had become my home even though I complained about it a lot (especially in the summer). It was home and I had really felt comfortable there. I think it takes hindsight to see it though. I will miss all my great friends that I had made there not to mention J's parents and his brother & family. But now we are on to a new adventure and trying to make Moscow, Idaho our new home. It sure will be hard to find friends to fill the shoes of those we left behind, but we are trying to get settled and find some. One thing that will be nice in our new area is that they actually have seasons! So I decided to capture some to share.

Autumn leaves

There has been lots that I am behind on so instead of promising to catch up I am going to link to J's accounts of the things we have been up to. There was a Harvest Party, a trip to Spokane, a visit to the local farmers market, and a trip to Coeur d' Alene.

Now to Halloween stuff.

The only picture I could get of Nathan

I love how Nathan (the dragon) is trying to get the knights sword.
Happy girls!
