A Fall Favorite

One of our favorite things to do every fall is head to Flat Rock, NC and spend an afternoon at Sky Top Orchard!  Graham and I started going before Wells was born and then took him when he was only weeks old!  He now loves it as much as we do!  If you've never gone, add it to your list for next fall!  We highly recommend it! 
 Before Wells!

a BOO! recap

Halloween seemed to sneak up on us and FLY by us this year!  Is anyone else having a hard time believing that Thanksgiving is next week?  Anywho, here are some fun pictures from our Halloween season!

Halloween party at Grandma's!

Fun at the Taylors First Baptist Fall Fest!
Carving "punkins" with Daddy!
Most of the Stepp cousin clan at Papa and MiMi's church carnival!
"Mom, look who I found babysitter MEG!"
Trick-or-treating with Emma Gray, aka: Minnie and eating as we ride!
Checking on "Jack" before bedtime!

And that's about it folks!  Hope you had a Halloween full of more treats than tricks!

He's pretty pumped about his upcoming roll, can't ya tell!

Face to Face

How many pictures do you have like this...two people smiling shoulder to shoulder for the camera?  If you're anything like us I'm imagining you have a ton!  And don't get me wrong, it's not a bad pose for a picture.  But, how does this stance work for a marriage?  My husband challenged me/us with a message he listened to last week.  Mark and Grace Driscoll have this to say about marriage:
A shoulder-to-shoulder marriage is one in which the couple works together on tasks and projects, such as keeping the home, raising the kids, growing the business, and serving the church.
 A face-to-face marriage is one in which, in addition to the shoulder-to-shoulder work, the couple gets a lot of face-to-face time for conversation, friendship, and intimacy.
Hmm, anyone else feeling like it's easy to get caught up in life's demands for a shoulder-to-shoulder marriage?  I mean, with everything else going on isn't that daily conversation with your spouse usually the easiest thing to cut out?  My challenge to you, spend some time FACE-TO-FACE!  I guarantee that it'll be worth it...
to everyone in your family!
