We went to the zoo for Grandpa’s birthday. Most of the pictures are on his camera, but I finally got a shot of the girls with Grandma and Grandpa K with mine.

Thank goodness the girls and I (with our friends, the Rieke family) made it to October Fest the week before Halloween. Since then, I’ve gotten too sick to be a mom, and my parents are taking care of them over Halloween, far away from their bunny costumes.
Kyla and Caleb ran through the obstacle course-slide over and over again.
I wasn’t excited about waiting in line in the cold for a pony ride, but the girls waited very patiently until it was their turn. I knew Piper would be excited to be so close to the “neighs”, but Kyla’s pure joy surprised me.
I thought I needed to rotate this last photo until I realized that the horse was straight, it was just Kyla who was 90 degrees off!

The day we got back from our cruise, I obviously had a lot of unpacking to do. Kyla and Piper were amazing—they plopped down on the empty suitcases and “read” books. I first caught them cuddled together with Kyla reading to Piper. By the time I got my camera, they had found their own books to read.
They were pretty happy to have Mama back….

Dwayne and I joined Keith and Julie on a 7 day Caribbean cruise. The girls stayed with Grandma and Grandpa, again. What a great way to celebrate together before Baby Omega joins us!
Our favorite port stop may have been Belize. We went to explore the Xunantunich ruins. Here, Dwayne climbs up the temple.
The view (!) from the top.

To set the record straight about the impact upon our marriage of the many time- and budget-consuming projects Dwayne has embarked on since moving here in 2003, I turn to a quote from Ruth Graham.
When asked if she had ever consider divorcing her evangelist husband, Billy, she replied, “Divorce? Never! Murder, yes.”
So until the next project, we are still “happily ever after….”
But just look at what else he has created!
