Grandfather Mountain

We spent a weekend in November in Boone for Mike's resident retreat.
The weather was pretty nice at the bottom Grandfather Mountain.
And freezing cold at the top!
Sadie loved the snow.
And the bears!

Halloween 2010

Mike's parents and our nieces Carys and Madison came to visit in October and helped us pick out our pumpkins:

Then we went over to Brett & Liesl's to carve the pumpkins. Sadie was more into the dogs, Lou and Stanley, than she was into the pumpkins. Let's just say there was a lot of kissing going on:

We took Sadie to our church Trunk or Treat. She thought the pumpkin full of treats was pretty great:

On Halloween we had friends over for homemade pizza, and lots of candy :) The little girls loved greeting the trick or treaters. They were quite generous in giving out the candy, so it was a win-win for everyone:
Happy Halloween!

Bye-bye Puerto Rico

Our last night we spent in San Juan. Thanks Elder & Sister Button for serving a mission in such a beautiful place and for letting us come visit you! We love you, we miss you and we are so proud of you!

Even More

Some of the wild life we encountered:

We got to go along with my parents to do a little missionary work. All the people were so kind. We got lots of kisses and lots of yummy food. We got to go to the University for tutoring and to the chapel for piano lessons. We were such great students!
