Happy Guy Fawkes Night!

In four days it will be one year from our engagement (yes, I can count, that post was two days after the fact), so we decided it's time we remove the wedding site link from our homepage, but it will still be accessible here.

We still like each other. A lot.
We continue to be anxiously engaged, hopefully in mostly good causes. As of late, we've been quite busy in school and work, but we found time for other activities. These included:

Friday, we moved a family in the ward.
Saturday, we ran errands, then came home and carved pumpkins. We had a few trick-or-treaters come to our door.

During.... Thomas found seeds that had already begun to sprout in his pumpkin!
Here are our pumpkin pals outside our apartment. Lisa's girl pumpkin is on the left, Thomas' boy pumpkin is on the right.
Sunday, we made French onion soup.

Fast, easy, and yummy.
Monday, we went on a walk for the first time in too long. We got to look at the neighbourhood pumpkins and took a few pictures.

What a face....!
oh, and our marigold finally bloomed...
Tuesday, we were privileged to hear from Claudio R. M. Costa of the Presidency of the Seventy, with whom Lisa shares a birthday, at a devotional, where he emphasised that our "ships are not to remain in harbor" all our lives. Coincidentally, we'd watched his latest conference talk the night before, a powerful sermon.

Wednesday, Lisa made stuffed bell peppers.

Thursday, we went to a free concert with BYU's Jazz Legacy Dixieland Band and a guest artist, Katie Cavera, on bass, banjo, and vocals. Definitely worth it.

It was so fun to go to a concert together again!
Friday (today), we celebrated Guy Fawkes Night by cooking Marble Squares.

Oh Yum.

  1. I like that ships harbor talk/summary...I was thinking of life-a good reminder...I like moving and new things expand, but theres things all of us like changing and then the ones we don't... leaving BYU, that's funny... lots of love! Happy engagement anniversary!
