Because I am pregnant, and Bryce looks good in short shorts, we decided to be Juno and Paullie Bleaker, from the movie: Juno. In case you haven't seen Juno--it's basically about a teenage girl who gets pregnant, and decides to give the baby up for adoption, after developing a good relationship with the "Mom" that would like a baby but can't have one. Juno is a cynical, somewhat outcast teen, while Paullie is shy and sweet, and on the cross-country team--hence the little shorts, headband, etc. It's a really fun, witty movie...
I am posting the picture of the real Juno and Paullie beside us. I'm not gonna lie, we looked awesome.

Well, the Phils have made it into the Post Season. I'm so excited! So, they may have lost last night, but they are certainly not out--afterall, they are coming home to play the next 3 games! I am trying every method possible to win tickets...haven't been lucky so far, but I'm hopeful. :) On Wednesday Mom and I took the train up to the city for a Phillies pep rally. The players were already in Tampa, so that was a bit sad, but the Phanatic graced us with his presence and Mayor Nutter gave us a hearty speech as well. It was a good time. I needed a nice break from work too! Enjoy some pictures!

After a long morning of pumpkin picking, we went home and enjoyed wild rice and mushroom soup (DELISH) and homemade caramel apples...I'd say it was a pretty great October day. Here are some pix!

Thanks Monica for getting me started... :) Monica is a friend that I work with. As we work online, we don't have much of a face-to-face relationship, but she, along with Mandy and I have become cyber friends, and enjoy our time together when we do get to see one another! (Like today, as we are at a Professional Development in Harrisburg, PA.)
What's funny about the two of them, plus me, is that we are all preggo. Mandy is about 7 months, Mon is about 5 1/2 months, and I'm just about 3...so it's kind of funny. I'll try to put a picture up of the different stages of our bellies. So funny...
It's been a great Fall so far...just enough chill to keep me happy, and the leaves are looking really pretty. We've also been able to have some great bonfires in the backyard, and have loved watching the Phils kick butt in the post-season!! Go PHILS!
We have also been a part some really cool movements with Circle of Hope. Last weekend was the "soft start" of our Camden, NJ church plant--which was really exciting to be a part of. It kind of feels like we are embarking on something 'big'...I can't wait to see how things start moving and shaking in South Jersey. This past weekend we also traveled up to the Bensalem, PA area for a retreat with CoH. It was a Discernment Retreat where we all worked really hard to get out our big ideas, and our goals for 2009. It is amazing to see where we as the church has come in the past year, and it was cool to pour out our ideas on paper, and see where they take us in the next year. We also got to play some sweet games like "ga-ga", and a little kickball. I think my body was a little annoyed at me for doing so much physical activity after being lazy for so long!
Okay--that is probably enough for the first blog post. I hope you all enjoy, and come back again sometime! : )
