If you could travel back in time, when would you choose? I had a hard time narrowing it down. I LOVE history so really I'd like to just stop by and visit a ton of different times and places. I'd like to go to ancient greece during the time of Socrates; see the darkness of the middle ages; watch the American Revolution; and I'd love to go and see the pioneer women and how they went about their day - cooking, raising children, etc.; not to mention the Restoration time period; I would also like to see the 1940's here in America, Germany, France, and England. And you know it'd be pretty awesome to be on one of the boats full of immigrants coming into Ellis Island and seeing their faces and feeling their joy as they saw the Statue of Liberty for the first time. :) I told you I had a hard time narrowing it down! hehe. So...I'm curious - when would you choose?
The next holiday is fast approaching and I think it is sad how overlooked it can become in the rush of upcoming events. I've been trying to think of all the things and people I am grateful for and trying to incorporate gratitude in my every day life. What are some things you are grateful for? I should clarify that I'm trying to think out of the box. For example, I am grateful for autumn air - it is crisp, but not too cold, and totally refreshing! I love the Lord's pallette for every season - the entire area is painted with different colors and vibrancies with each change and I LOVE it! Speaking of loving things - I am going to try and find a picture that I have fallen in love with at Deseret Book...it's only $250 on sale... :) hehe.
We had a great halloween! We went to a halloween carnival in the morning with some friends where Cowboy dressed up in his favorite outfit - can you guess what? Princess was a pumpkin fairy and of course Brother Bear was rightly dressed after his nickname. That evening there was a trunk or treat at our complex and Cowboy decided that he wanted make up and wanted to be a pirate instead of a cowboy. :) Here are a few pictures.
