This is what we woke up to!

This was the 3rd time it snowed this week. It snowed Sunday when we were on our way to church, Monday all afternoon and evening, and then last night. The snow last night was the first time the snow this week actually stuck. I realize it isn't a lot of snow, but this is just not something that happens often in GA, so we were both very excited.
People keep assuring us that it is not normal for it to snow this early here in KY!
Next on the list...learn how to turn on the pilot light before we freeze to death.

Birthday and other stuff

Last Thursday and Friday we celebrated my birthday! It was so much fun and my husband bought me Grey's season 4. He knows exactly what I like. He also took me to dinner at Texas Roadhouse, thanks to my mom. I also got to do a little shopping. I bought some new sweaters because it is cold here and will only continue to get colder. I also bought a new purse. We ended the night watching The Office and Grey's!
On Friday night, our small group through me a party and I felt so loved. We have some great friends here in Wilmore. We just hung out and ate some great food. It was relaxing and fun.
Also on Thursday night, I got a phone call that I had recieved the babysitting job, and that was a wonderful present. I will be starting that job in February. In the mean time I will be working a little at Tastebuds and babysitting for some others.
Matt and I are so blessed and loving life. We hope to see many of you over the next 2 months over Thanksgiving and Christmas!

I knew I forgot something

Here are a few pictures I forgot to post:

This is a picture of the tree outside of our apartment. All of the trees are changing around here and it is beautiful!

Here is the new addition to our family...Duncan! Matt's bosses at Tastebuds had to give him away and said they will provide the food and litter if we will just keep him so we are. He is a great cat and doesn't do much but sleep so it is great. We love him.

Here is our new family picture!

Updates...I'm horrible at blogging

So October has been a good month for the Stouts. We have pushed through mid terms and are headed fast towards FINALS! I thought I would let everyone in on our past month and show you some pictures of our Halloween.

This is Matt enjoying a nice cup of hot apple cider! Doesn't he look so happy!

This is Matt with our friends Jonathon and Mark enjoying some wonderful cider and conversation.

This is me with Missy also enjoying the cider and some homemade candy corn looking cookies.

Matt is having lots of fun carving his pumpkin! A little scary!

These are our finished products. Matt's pumpkin is sad b/c he was going to do a cut out of Abraham Lincoln but it didn't work.
Here are all the pumpkins that were carved that night.

This is Matt (the Tin Man)and me (the Cowardly Lion), with our friends Amy (Dorothy), Matt (the Scarecrow), Gary (the Wizard), and Mrs. Francis (the Witch). We dressed up and gave out candy to a million kids in downtown Wilmore. It was lots of fun and we felt like celebrities. Everyone kept coming up to us and asking us if they could take a picture of us with their kids.

Now it is November and there will be lots of traveling and excitement in the next 2 months. I am currently looking for a job that is more compatable with school so if you will all be praying about that the Stout's would greatly appreciate it. God has been amazing and has already opened some doors, but there isn't anything concret YET! There will be though!

Hope all of you are well and we look forward to hopefully seeing many of you over the next 2 months. And I promise to be more faithful to writing.
Love, The Stouts
