Halloween Visits

We had a lot of trick-or-treaters this year, now that we are in a family neighborhood. This was an exciting night for us. We love seeing friends and family. I remember in our very first duplex and Halloween. Jon had to dress up for work so he decided to stay in his costume, (a farmer) and greet the trick-o-treaters. However, we didn't have anyone come to our door. Last night we had at least 30 kids! I am including some of our friends that stopped by.

Michelle and Luke Earhart. Luke was Yodo from Star Wars. He was being shy when I tried to take his picture!

The Smith Family stopped by. Rob is my partner and this is his family.

Rob (spiderman), Tessa (bumble bee), Luke (Star Wars character), Michelle (witch) and Rachael (princess).

The Howes Family. This is Jon's Aunt Sara's kids.
Brett, Halle and excited Tanner. Tanner was a cute little animal but got hot so he changed to his football pjs.
The O'Riley's. Justin and Dawn O'Riley stopped by our house too. They are a really fun couple that I helped buy a house. They live just a block over from us. This is their daughter Kennedy and son Cooper.

Hello Everyone,

I am testing this out. I thought that I would start a blog to help keep all friends and family informed of everything that is going on in our lives. I understand it's pretty boring just being Jon and I but I will try to post fun-worthy stuff. I put things on MySpace a lot but realize not everyone is a member. I thought this would be a good way to share our lives with everyone.

Thanks for visiting our blog.

Getting to Know Us....

I am trying to teach myself this new blogger thing. I am going to try and upload some pictures of Jon and I from our wedding!

Jon and I were married on Spetember 4, 2004. Three years and counting!!! We got married in Shelbina, MO and then had our reception at the Lake in Clarence, MO. It was a beautiful outdoor reception and we were very blessed with lots of friends and relatives that were able to share that day with us.

Jon 's Family. ...

Keely, Ann, me, Jon, Susan and Kerry.

This is my family.

My brother-in-law Brian, sister Lauren, mother Jana, me, Jon, my Nana, grandfather Roy and Aunt Kaye.

This is my dad, Roger. He lives in Dallas, Texas and unfortuantely I don't get to see him as often as I like.

These are my two best friends in the world. I have known them since I could walk. Carisa Berti and Michelle (Dimmitt) Earhart. We have been through so many things together. I am so happy to have them both here in Columbia with me!
