.:Monster Bash:.

I made this invitation over on Facebook, but in case you aren't on Facebook, here is the info again.

We REALLY need to have an RSVP by next week!

It's back!

We're having our third annual Monster Bash!

It will be held at the Ivy Springs Clubhouse on Monday, October 24th at 11:30 p.m.

Hosted by Summer, Sarah, and Stacy.

Come prepared for games, food, and fun!

Please have your boys and ghouls come dressed in their costumes.

We are going to have a potluck, so please bring your favorite Halloween themed dish to share. Please post whether you are bringing sweet or savory so that we can have a good balance of both since it will be lunch time!

We need an RSVP by Wednesday, October 19th, so that we can plan accordingly for games, goodie bags, and activities.

It's going to be spooktacular!

Who's up for it?

Hello my dear friends! It's been so long since we last met together. I've missed our discussions and fun reads! I'm wondering how many of you are interested in doing book club this fall?? I'm due to have my baby any day now so I'm not going to be much of an orchestrator this next while. Is anyone wanting to take over and head things up for the next couple of months?? Thanks!

June book club

I'm hosting June, but we'll have a daytime playgroup style meeting. Does anyone have any preference on what day of the week we meet? I'll either host at my house or Katy said she can reserve the clubhouse - probably weather dependent?

Here's the book and synopsis:
The Silence of God by Gale Sears

From socialism to forced atheism, almost overnight -- Based on the inspiring true story of the only LDS family in 1917 revolutionary Russia.

The Silence of God follows Johan and Alma Lindlof and their eight children as they witness the glitz and glamour of Imperial Russia quickly dissolve into mass rebellion. The chaos ultimately divided their family and tested their faith, as some of the Lindlof children were sent to Siberian work camps.

As they face an uncertain future of danger and despair under the Bolshevik regime, life for the wealthy Lindlof family is changed forever by an idealogy that forces equality and demands the silence of God.

This well-researched novel by author Gale Sears – a powerful new voice in LDS historical fiction – offers a rare glimpse into a fascinating period of history, including the rise of socialism and the origins of the LDS Church in Russia.

As the only LDS family living in Russia at the time, the Lindlofs witnessed Elder Francis M. Lyman of the LDS Church’s Quorum of the Twelve Apostles dedicate the land for the preaching of the gospel on Aug. 6, 1903. His scribe was the only other person there. Now, on Aug. 29, 2010, the Kyiv Ukraine Temple will be dedicated, the first temple in a former Soviet bloc country – just a few miles from the very spot where LDS was first introduced in Russia.

.:Extra Copy:.

Hey everyone, I've got an extra copy of the book for this month if anyone needs it. Our internet is not working at home, so if you want to get it, feel free to swing on by and get it! During the week, I'm home during the day all day, everyday! I'll be home this afternoon, but gone all day tomorrow.
