After four kids, ten moves and nearly two decades, we are still blissfully in love (most of the time) and I found myself back in the state I was born and raised in. It has definitely been a journey. In fact, on our 18th anniversary we pulled the last of our stuff up over the pass and into Montana, leaving our surprise love, Idaho, behind. But Montana is a great place. The last best place according to some. And we fully intend to explore as much of it as we can! Join us on our continued adventure through life, love and other stuff that comes with it.

Halloween hangover

What is it about Halloween that makes life for the next week so weird? And then there's the daylight savings time thrown in there to totally throw us off.

But they were cute.

Amazing Grace:

Super Calla:

This is a pretty smart town we live in here in Idaho. At 4:00 they have a trunk-or-treat downtown. They block off four blocks of main street and memebers of the community can park their cars and hand out candy. Some of them totally get into it.

And it is fun to walk up and down the street in a sort of parade and visit with other families.

Then it's on to the rest of the town. We did a total of two blocks more I think. Mostly because the family we put down as Grace's "snow" family (the family she'll stay with if the weather prevents her from getting home from school) lives on that block and Grace hadn't seen their house yet.

You know you live in a small town when there is a bowl of treats outside the door, including homemade popcorn balls.

We were done and home before 6pm. And it was still light out. Smart town we live in. Smart town.

Super cute costumes! Your girls can come over to my house and save the day anytime they want!

OK, super cute and clever costumes! The trunk-or-treating for the town is a GREAT idea! We do a more small-scale version of it, and it's been really fun.
