Happy (late) Halloween

The Pace family stopped by to see us on Halloween- even the dogs were decked out for the festivities!

Aren't these lovely flowers? I think they're beautiful. I bought them last week on a particularly crabby trip to the grocery store, shortly after being robbed at the gym. Flowers really can brighten even the worst of moods.

Not pictured: My purse, fully packed duffel bag, 2 cases of CDs, and one small Saturn window.
Also not pictured: The loser robbers who broke into my car, took all of my things, and promptly went to Mcdonalds for a snack on my credit card. Mcdonalds. Seriously.

Sidenote: Before you start thinking "OH, she left her purse in the car... bad move..." let's just remember that this was done on purpose, to avoid having my gym locker broken into as warned about on signs all over the gym. Clearly my solution was ineffective...

The World's Largest Corn Maze

Last weekend we went to the World's Largest Corn Maze with our 2x2 group from church. Being the end of the season, the maze had already been a bit wrecked by so many other visitors making "cheater paths" through the corn, but we had a great time finding all 24 checkpoints anyways.

Here is the Richardson Farm, seen from the observation tower:

and here is the maze: Mapping our our next destination:

The girls: The guys:
We snacked on fresh kettle corn most of the afternoon- yum!

And there were smores at the end of course. Here is Allison enjoying a bite:
