A Lord of the Rings Halloween

October 31st, 2014 The first year was the Avengers. The second year was Star Wars. This year it was Lord of the Rings. We went all out this year and had a lot of fun in the process!  The theme was decided a few months ago and we have been working on it ever since.  This year was the toughest year yet to get everything pulled together for the 5 characters we were going to represent.  Jonah’s turned out to be the toughest as “Gimli” costumes are no longer sold.  We ended up making Gimli’s key piece, his helmet, out of a skateboarding helmet.  The process...

Family Photos

October 26th, 2014 My mom has wanted updated family photos for several years now.  You know, ones that include all of her grandsons.  🙂  The timing worked out to have photos taken on our last day there.  The weather was perfect and the fall colors provided a beautiful backdrop for photos!  Here are just a few of the 148 the photographer gave us!

My mom put it best when she said, “It reminds me of the old...

The Clark Family Reunion

October 25th, 2014 The Clark Family Reunion happened on our last Saturday in StL.  It was a day filled with fellowship, food, games, photos, laughter, and more food.  We had a great time!  This has become the one time each year that everyone on the Clark side can be together.  As we each get older, our schedules get more crazy and even the holidays don’t provide a time when we are all in the same place at the same time.  This has become a treasured tradition for all of us.  Adam was able to join us at the park that afternoon as well.  The day was another full day for us, but I...

Treasured Moments

October 24th, 2014 On Friday, the boys and I visited my grandparents.  My grandparents, on both sides, are not doing well.  To say that our visit with each of them was emotional for me would be an understatement.  The boys were able to sit at my grandma Annie’s piano and play for her and my grandpa.  What precious memories for all of us. We spent the afternoon and evening back at my parents… playing with some dominoes, baking cookies, and having a bonfire with hotdogs, chili, s’mores, and brown-bears. The day was packed but we enjoyed every...
