Keepin' It Short!

I was inspired by another blog I visit, she keeps things nice and short and you don't feel like you've read a novel by the end so here goes my attempt at "short and sweet"!

Owen's first experience with " real? food happened today we discovered likes sweet potatoes both mouth surrounding area ;)! His latest thing pulling up, he does it on everything....especially me! Todd is done calling football games...yea, and he?s downhill with master?s....only few weeks go whoo-pee! As for me, not much report.. just trying establish some kind of schedule so I can workout, read Bible, do laundry, etc. on a regular basis....unfortunately Owen doesn?t seem to have the word ?schedule? in his vocabulary yet :).

Owen Update - 1st Halloween, he was a fireman if you couldn't tell :). Thanks to Gavin and Stace for letting him borrow the outfit! He "trick or treated" in Bennington at Grandma and Grandpa's and then at his Mommy's best friend's old house. Surprisingly with only hitting two houses he made out really well :)! Grammy and Gramps came to visit along with Uncle Eric, Aunt Andrea and cousin Brayden. Owen wasn't too much for socializing and slept almost the enitre afternoon. Later, Sat. afternoon he went to stay with Grandma and Grandpa in Bennington. Let's see... he now sits up and still has his funky style of army crawling, but he's gotten much faster at it. And just this morning Daddy discovered two teeth poking through on the bottom! We figure he must be able to handle teething fairly well, because he really wasn't too fussy, hopefully it's that way for the rest of them too! Sleeping through the night you may wonder? The answer is still "NO!". He goes to bed around 8:00 and is up at around 2:00 to eat and then again at 6:30 to eat and stay up. Car rides have taken a sudden turn for the worse lately. It seems about 75% of the time now he's not really enjoying them. The crazy thing is now he cries when the van is moving and stops at stop lights...wierd!

Todd and Melissa Update - We celebrated our 2nd anniversary! It was fantastic! Todd did a great job of surprising me and took me to a B&B in Wichita. We ate at a great seafood restaurant and then headed back to the B&B to catch the Texas vs. Texas Tech game, which unfortunately I could not stay awake for the end :(. The next day was Sunday so we attended Chapel Hill church and heard an amazing guest speaker named Jerry Traylor. We got some lunch at a place called Doc Green, it's this awesome sandwhich and salad place...we highly recommend it. On Sundays they give you a 15% discount if you have your church bulletin with you, how cool is that! After that we spent the rest of the day shopping and then of course had to eat one more time at good ol' Chipotle. I realize with each and every time we getaway how much I love to be with Todd and it doesn't matter what we're doing...I'm very blessed!

I told you awhile ago that I'd update on how our "Fireproof" study is going and I'm happy to say it's going quite well. I really feel God is blessing this study. Just tonight we had a little time to share and two couples already have seen major changes in their marriage....Praise the Lord! I'm really excited to see what He has in store for the next 4 weeks of the study. It has also been a blessing to work with Todd on getting the lessons ready and doing our homework for it. I still highly recommend seeing the film and if it's made available to you doing the study as well. Well, I think that takes care of the highlights from the last week and a half!
