8 Things That Happened This Weekend: (I'm cheating and changing this one!)
1. Carved a pumpkin (when I stuck my hand in the pumpkin Elliet said, "I don't think I'm gonna do that.")

2. I had an ultrasound of my gall bladder (should have results tomorrow)
3. Skipped church (still feel bad...but only because Elliet loves it so much)
4. Auntie Em came over for dinner
5. 6 episodes of Buffy
6. We got boo'd!! I first saw the idea here (fyi, there is some stronger language there) and I thought if I had time and energy, I would boo Christie via the mail... then a few days later someone actually boo'd us! Not as creative as what Suburban Bliss did but we then boo'd another neighbor with candy, spooky pencils and Halloween themed note paper, mini snow globes and stickers. Very exciting.
7. Found the girls' costumes for $5 at Old Navy

8. Got Ziva to smile at us!!

4. The next Sabin family reunion ("when are we going back to the family hotel?")

4 Things on St's Wish List:
1. COMPUTER (don't mean to yell but I really need a new computer!!)
2. Couch (right now we have a love seat that Emily and I bought from a hotel resale shop while in college. I cannot imagine the grossness that lurks)

Family Hotel

Last week we spent a few days in Lake Hope State Park for the Sabin family reunion. Close to 30 people in a big lodge that Elliet calls the "family hotel". We went hiking and played games, sat around the fire and Elliet even rode a horse with Auntie Em. We cannot wait for the next reunion!

A Birthday Party

After Gus had his party, Kenai started asking for a mermaid cake.
Auntie Em promised her one so we turned it into a birthday party for Ziva.
