Reformation Party

We had a reformation party on October 31st this year with some people from our church. In memory of the day when Martin Luther nailed his "protest" to the door of the Wittenburg church.
I tried to dress up as a medieval woman and Bill as Pope Leo the 10th. We did our best to scrounge around and not spend money on the outfits! How did we do? =)

Jon as a vagabond... but a fully armed one!

Shawn as Martin Luther vs. Bill as the Pope.

All of us who came in costume: Carrie (as the door of Wittenburg church), Rebekah (as a servant girl), Jon, Bill and me.

Talbot Marriage Retreat

We went on the Talbot Couples retreat two weeks ago - held at a hotel in Costa Mesa. It was a really good time of learning how to better communicate with each other and just have some solid time to spend together without the distractions of work!

Courtyard of the Hotel

We enjoyed a small hike in Newport - just 5 minutes from the hotel.
