The church is aglow

with gorgeous Fawn Lilies
(some Chicagwegians should really come to visit, hint hint)

Mayers conquer the climbing tree?

Paying homage

To "the van" that got "the teens" around all that fateful week in February (thanks Kristal & Rob!):

Fell asleep for about a month there. Here's some of our recent happenings... Dog turned ONE today. Yeah dog!!!
Effie painting her skull...
Effie as a Nija:

Effie's halloween gang - the teens and a multi-holed Charlie Brown ghost (Noah). Ferg said no thanks to this year's festivities...
Effie and Amy went as comic book characters:
Kiley and Silas came up from the States to join Effie, Matt and Amy for some serious teen hanging:
These are strange teenagers. They don't eat a whole lot, they don't make much of a mess and they offer to rake leaves...
They also spent an evening perfecting the can n' string phone:
Kiley and Effie with quite possibly the ugliest witch house ever crafted:
The hunt tradition continues... Matt was trying to be the killjoy and tell us he's done too many hunts at our place. But after 24 hours of starving him he finally came around and agreed to hide some items for newcomers Kiley and Silas:
Yes, he's a tall laddie!

The gang:
Super Bonus Photos... Here's a picture of Matt:
He belongs to this lady:
Here's me, a wheelbarrow and a dead deer:
You're welcome.
