Jared and I, were Shrek and Fiona this year for halloween!  Some people didn't even recognize Jared.  We had so much fun running errands, going to a party, and a Dixie Women's Volleyball game.  We even went and saw a late night movie all dressed up.

Thank You, Vici, for letting us borrow such awesome costumes. When we walked into a College Volleyball game and the whole crowd turned and watched us climb the bleachers.  I thought they were going to have to stop the game on a count to us.

Of course, I loved the attention!

Friday, November 16th, 2008 I woke up thinking about and missing the primary class we taught in Bloomington Hills.  I wondered when I would get to see them again.  But it was a day of  miracles and I got to see all the children that I missed so very much, later that very afternoon!

Miracle # 1 --Friday was a gorgeous day in Southern Utah.  

Miracle # 2 --Jared and I finished cleaning windows early in the afternoon.  

I asked Jared, "Hey, you want to call the kids and see if they can come out and play with us at the park?"  He loved the idea.  He loves playing on the park equipment just as much if not more than the kids!  (Just ask any of his nieces or nephews.)  

Miracle # 3 -- Each and everyone of the children was available to play with us.  (It isn't easy competing with football, soccer and family vacations.)  

Miracle # 4 -- I got to spend the afternoon and evening with some of my favorite people, my husband and the CTR 7 class from Bloomington Hills.  

It was so fun spending time with the children we've grown to love over the past year and a half.  It was one of the highlights of the week!
