 A little dusting of the white stuff on the 23rd 
to remind us that winter is just around the corner
Pumpkins on the doorstep and leaves galore!
 A house full of Emily's friends eating donuts
as fast as we could cook them!  
Too busy dunking hot donuts in a glaze to snap
photos of the cute kids - sadly, all I had left was
the movie watching room post holiday party. 
Hey!  We watched a great movie tonight!  A very suspenseful
Doris Day movie:  Midnight Lace.  If you can find it, watch it!!
Hope you had a Happy Halloween!

Happy Birthday to our beautiful daughter!
(see you soon!!)

Our Congregation

I may or may not have mentioned before, what a magical little neighborhood we live in :)
Hidden Village.
There is one road in and one road out.  It is the sweetest neighborhood around!  The picture above was painted by a friend and really captures the sentiment of the residents.  The bridge is used to post any number of signs.  Birthdays, announcements, lost puppies... We really feel very blessed to live here.  There is a great mix of young and old and those in between.  The older folks have so much wisdom and can be such a support to all of us.  It takes a village and we love ours!

I get to to work with the ladies in our Ward and it is a real treat!  We met at the studio last week for a great bread making night. Above you can see the happy students and below the great cooks who demonstrated some pretty amazing bread recipes!

We learned how to make the fancy Christmas Bread with a cream cheese filling, Scones that melted in your mouth and some delicious Artisan Bread!  Not that i don't want to give credit where credit is due - I really try to be careful with the privacy of others and not mention names :)
We enjoyed sampling all of the tasty breads and catching up with each others busy lives!  I sure love these ladies!

Harvest Dinner a the church...A Potato Palooza complete with a delicious dinner, a pie eating contest, donuts on a string and creative potato creations.  All put on by the youth and their leaders!
