Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! We had fun making Spooky Goodies and carving a Jack-o-lantern in prep for Halloween. Jack stayed home and handed out candy. I spent the weekend with friends in Nashville (Did I mention that I had school on Halloween?).

Get Together


Anondi and Joel came through Phoenix on their way moving Joel from Albuquerque to San Diego.  They crashed at our house for the night.  It was so fun to talk, play games, laugh, and of course, eat (Raviolis for dinner and pumpkin coffee cake for breakfast)!

Turner Visit

Melissa and Carl came to town for a week.  It was great to be together and made us wish we lived closer together!

Carl helped Jack in the yard and Melissa and I worked on curtains!  We had yummy sushi and Chinese dim sum.

We found a great deal on this floor rug for our bedroom.  It is huge and goes great with our bedding.  Now to make curtains and the room will be set!

Loving our Flowers


Jack picked these flowers from the yard (hibiscus and lantana) and put them in this stone vase that my mom and dad gave us for Christmas last year.  Doesn’t the arrangement look oh so nice!

Working in the Front Yard

 IMG_0707 IMG_0708 IMG_0709 IMG_0710 IMG_0711

We’ve been having so much fun improving the front yard.  First we completely changed the river walk.  Then we began planning.  Since then, we’ve planted 3 Red Yucca plants under the windows, 3 Mexican Birds of Paradise and one Yellow along the east fence, a yucca (that’s the tall one we’re planting in these pictures), a pygmy date palm, and 2 agave (an Octopus Agave and a Weber Agave).  We’ve also planted a Jasmine vine under the mailbox and a Jasmine bush under the living room window (here you see Sammy next to the Jasmine bush helping us work in the front yard.)  We’ve also put in some pink and some white Bougainvillea between the front yard and the dog run.   It’s been so enjoyable.
