Happy Halloween!

Our kids did a trunk or treat on base last night and got a good amount of candy for me ;)

Poor Emily had to sit in a pumpkin for some pictures. She wasn't thrilled, but I got a couple good shots.

wasting time

As I sit here nursing my little one I have been browsing through blogs about simplifying, organizing, decorating, keeping home, and saving money. I am looking forward to our upcoming move as an opportunity to start over with our home. The place we are in now has ugly, painted wallpaper, borrowed furniture, curtains that came with the house, and bare walls (try hammering little nails into stone and you'll know why). It's a nice enough place to live, but it doesn't seem like home. I want to choose paint colors, sew curtains, and frame photos of our family and all the places we have been together.

Here are a few photos that capture the "look" I would like to go for.

the Real Oktoberfest

Now that our time here is coming to an end we are feeling like there is so much that we still haven't seen in Europe. One of those things was Oktoberfest in Munich. We went all out and dressed up for the occasion. It wasn't all about getting drunk for us so we went first thing in the morning before the crowds. Anika loved the little rides and we enjoyed some authentic Bavarian food and music.
