Happy Halloween!! (In Pictures)

It's not a secret that Halloween is my favorite holiday. It hurts my feelings when people deem it to be an evil day or un-Christian. I have nothing but memories of wonderful times spent with my family on Halloween. Last night was no exception. Check out the photos below. I even got Dave to dress up with me. Can you tell who we were??

Another Reason I like Halloween.........My Birthday!
Thanks for the cake Dave!

If you go to the fair this week.......

Stop by the Humane Society's booth and vote for our puppy. I think its a quarter to vote, but it'll go toward a good cause. I believe the winners get their photo placed in the Humane Sociey's calendar.

I don't have much time for blogging these days. It's extremely busy around our house and we have appreciated all of the help our wonderful friends and family members have volunteered on their weekends and afternoons. Maybe I'll be able to get in a few more posts pre-wedding, but if not, check back in about 5 weeks!!

Happy Birthday Granny Ruby & Laeton Reid!

One year ago today, Dave and I were wrestling with 2 twenty-five month old's in the hospital waiting room. I have a hilarious memory of Dave with his arms loaded down with balloons, clothes, and food maneuvering Houston through the hospital lobby holding on to nothing but the hairs on the top of his head! It was an interesting day to say the least!

Laeton Reid is one today, and yesterday was Granny Ruby's birthday, so the family gathered at mom and dad's for lunch on Sunday afternoon to celebrate.

The birthday boy!

His brothers were more excited than he was.

He was pretty happy with his cake....

Just don't try to make him wear a dorky hat.

The boys were curious to see what Laeton got.

Houston the Rockstar.
(Griff would be proud!)

Stacy and Tamara made Granny a cake.

The best family pic I could get...

5 Years

As of today, I've been with this guy for exactly five years. I could go on and on about how wonderful he is, but I don't want to make everybody jealous! Seriously though, he's great!

Here we are Saturday night getting ready
for my ten year reunion.

My New Last Name

Thursday afternoon I went to Marrianne's Punky-Doodle party with the intention of ordering an address stamp like the one above. I know what our address will be when we move into our house, but I had not considered one small detail. I am a math teacher, so that's my excuse for not knowing the answer to this question. My maiden name is also Clark, so that's another reason why I never really paid much attention to this rule in English class. Anyway, the nice sales lady, Lucy, was writing down all of the info needed for the stamp. At the very top of the stamp, it was to say the plural of our last name. That's when it hit me that I didn't know how to pluralize Morris. No one else at the party did either. A few ladies thought it was The Morris', but that didn't look right or sound right to me. I just went with "The Morris Family" to be on the safe side. I came home and tried to find the answer on-line. According to one grammar web-site, it would have es added to the end. The example on the site read, We are going to visit the Joneses. So will Dave and I be The Morrises?? Help me out!! Does anyone know the correct way to write this? I'm sure Dave's step-sister Wendy, the English teacher, can tell me!!

Okay, I just did a spellcheck. Morrises was highlighted and Morris's was the suggested spelling. That does look better......Is that the proper spelling????
