We are back

I know it's been a while.

I have been blessed with alot of phototgraphy work lately, so with those projects outstanding, I haven't been able to find time to post about other things, although we have had alot going on...

October was an awesome month! We enjoyed it all.. this first weekend I had a wedding in Athens so that was boring... Two weekends later, we visited my friend from Arizona, Lauriann Jones, at her parent's cabin for our annual 2008 Blue Ridge Bash. My friend from Virginia, Amy Holtschneider, was able to fly in with her four month old too, so I was ecstatic to spend the weekend with them and and my friend Christen as well. We four girls rarely get to see each other and I feel so blessed each time we do.

Of course, we visited a pumpkin patch, carved pumpkins and had a Halloween to remember throughout the month, also. We went trick or treating with our friends, the Hammocks.

On a really sad note, we lost Josh's grandmother last weekend after a short illness. There was peace knowing she was no longer in pain and we celebrated her life in a service in Carrollton on Friday.

Though the circumstances are sad, being able to see distant family and spend time with them is a shining light at a dark time. Chuck, Amy and the boys came down from Missouri for the weekend and we were able to see them and help celebrate Quinn's birthday on Sunday. The boys were also all able to go to our friend, Dylan Hammock's, birthday party at a local fire station.. what a great idea!

Below are slideshows for all our events:
