Russ and Sharryn celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary last Sunday! We took them out to dinner at Lawry's, and as a surprise Marty flew in and met them at the restaurant. They were shocked! It was a very fun night of reminiscing and celebrating.

Dylan was a cow for his first Halloween. We had so much fun! The Andersonville neighborhood we went trick-or-treating in really gets into it, with house decorations and even the adults dressing up. And the weather was just perfect. Dylan liked shaking the mini-bags of candy he got, and staring at the kids in their costumes.
