Fun, relaxing weekend


Halloween was spent at home with the sniffles. We both are getting over a cold, Justin more than I, but we're feeling MUCH better. Saturday Justin went to his parents, without me seeing how I was under the weather, and when he got home our marathon started. We watched Ghost Hunters for hours. We had a little intermission when we ran to my parents house. Justin sat in the "library" while I went trick-or-treating with the kids and some family members. Fun times.

After the intermission, we continued our marathon until roughly midnight. We got in bed, talked a little about scary Halloween things, and haunted things. Then we were down for the count. Primary the next morning was a little out of control. It was insane! Kids were off the walls, talking NON-STOP! They got a good talking to in sharing time, a little bit of a guilt trip that was felt by few.

Anywho. Got home from church... napped a little, and then about 20 minutes before we had to go to Justin's parents for dinner, he decided to do a little haircut. It started out like this....
And proceeded to be this....
And ended with this.

Needless to say, he's cooled off a lot, and now weighs less.
