October update :)

Two weeks ago we went to Milwaukee to see our family. We had Sunday dinner together with both sets of parents. We stuffed ourselves silly. It was nice. I got some testing done for my research and got a lot of strange looks from passers-by. It'll become evident why when we post pictures.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the flag in the background, it's for Craig and symbolizes one family member being at war. Chantal says, "Mom looks cute with her bear." Make that "ueber-cute." Below is a picture of us in our study with the 82nd Airborne Flag and Chantal with the little version of the star flag by her art nook.

Last weekend, we attended a charity dinner for the Humane Society. There were many wonderful items to bid on. We bid on English toffee, but were significantly outbid! :) The food was really good. We got dressed up which was fun too. The last item to be bid on was a day with the raptor trainer people. Ok, so they actually do rehabilitation... They brought around a red-tailed hawk and a great horned owl. It was really cool to see the birds so close. The size of the owl's eyes
and claws were amazing.

We've both been having lots of homework and exams at school recently. It's been pretty tiring. We're both looking forward to the holidays. Next weekend, we'll be making a return trip to Milwaukee for a wedding and to see ma & pa.
