On our way back from Poland, OH, we stopped off at Pokagon to enjoy the beautiful day. [October 21, 2007]

South Bend through Mark and Debbie's Lens

Since we were unable to attend the ND v. USC game Oct. 20th, Mark (Wendy's boss) and Debbie came into town, looked after Jackie, and enjoyed the game. They captured some great shots of South Bend. See below.

Jon and Chrissy's Wedding

We had a great time at Jon and Chrissy's wedding October 20, spending the weekend (Oct 19 - 21) in Poland, OH. Corey was in the wedding. Lily really enjoyed the big fountain in the back of church, the cookie table with 300+ dozen cookies (as did her parents) and dancing all night! We finally dragged her home at 10:30 at night!

Decorating Pumpkins

We each painted a little pumpkin. It was a lot of fun! [October 15, 2007]

Miscellaneous Lily Shots

Here a bunch of different Lily shots that Lindsay snapped over the past couple of weeks. The one's with the scarves are from music class.

Alexander Visit

Rod, Alicia, Molly and Abby came for a visit October 11-15. We fed the Notre Dame ducks, walked around campus (including an up-close and personal visit with the cheerleaders and leprechaun) hit a cider mill, the beach and a football game. It was a great time! The girls had an absolute blast together. Lily is still calling nearly all babies that she sees 'Abby'.

Margo's Visit

Margo came out to spend the weekend with Lily and me October 5-8 while Corey went to deer camp for Jon's bachelor party. We had a blast! We went to Shipshewana for some shopping (note Lily below trying to buy 2 big bags of candy that she could hardly carry, and we rode in an Amish carriage pulled by Buddy the horse. Margo stenciled the dining room which looks incredible!

17 Months

Lily looks like so grown up in these photos! This is the backyard in our new home in South Bend. [October 5, 2007]

The Altman Visit

Mike, Tammy and Will Altman came for a visit September 27 - 29. We had a blast! As you can see below, Lily and Will fell right back in step. They enjoyed a bath together, a trip to the cider mill, and visit to the Warren Sand Dunes on Lake Michigan.
