Hurray for Fall

Well first off I want to apologize for the infrequency with which we have been posting! It probably does not help that Sarah has been doing all the blogging since we started this thing. Well this post changes that, as I Brad am writing a post, Sarah does not even know I am writing this!! Lets see how long it takes her to find out! :)

Over the past few week Sarah and I have been very busy, we made a trip up to Minnesota to visit with Sarah's side of the family, incluiding her Mom and two youngest sisters Laura and Anna! We were blessed to see all of them and amazed at how much the girls have grown!!

The very next weekend we headed to Michigan to visit briefly with my side of the family. It was a great to see all of our friends and family in Michigan and to celebrate, even if it was a week late, my Sister Amy's 21st birthday.


I can honestly say that fall is my favorite time of year. I find it so refreshing to step out in the morning to the cool crisp fall air. In the spirit of fall Sarah and I have been on a mission which I like to call "No Utility October" similar to "No Shave November" and other silly made up events. Basically we have vowed that unless the temperature in our Condo nears a point that would kill us or our precious cat Chloe, we will not turn on the heat or the air. I am happy to report that October is almost over and we have survived the month quite comfortably, other than one or two nights where the temp. inside dipped to around 62 :), that's what blankets were made for though right?!!? With all the energy savings from this month I will have to take my sweet wife out to dinner or something to repay her :)

Well that's it for this post!! Though if things go as planned I hope to have pictures of carved pumpkins to post tomorrow :) No worries, these are reformation day pumpkins, not celebrating evil, evil, Halloween or some sort of pagan fall harvest festival. I can't wait until we have kids so they go door to door dressed as Calvin, Luther, Zwingli, Knox, and Huss, shouting: "Indulgence or treat!"

(I am trying to find the Luther Costume Below in a Child's size already!)

Haha. I'm going to dress my kids up as Rashi, Akevia and Rabbi Jose. Then we'd all be reported to CPS.
Nice work on the blog, Mr. Kidder
