Do you feel like you never have enough time? Well, if you remember to turn your clocks back on Sunday, Nov.3, at 2 a.m. or on Saturday night, Nov. 2, you will gain an hour now, but will lose it again in March. Hope you remember or you will be an hour early for church on Sunday.

Here's some news from Jackie Tuomi in Thornton, Colo.: "I wanted to share that our daughter Jessica (Tuomi) Milinazzo had a baby girl on June 29, 2013. She weighed 8 pounds, 1 ounce and was 21 inches long. Her name is Emmie Marie. Recently we flew to Minnesota with Jessica, Franky and Emmie to celebrate with family and friends so they could meet Jessica's new family. It was nice for everyone to meet the new additions. A highlight was being able to take some four-generation photos, including great-grandma Gladys Clark, grandma Jackie Tuomi, daughter Jessica Milinazzo, and her daughter Emmie Marie Milinazzo. People have told David and me how great it was to be a grandparent and now we know. It is pretty great!!!"
Jackie also shared that their daughter Hannah Tuomi is playing professional basketball in Herne, Germany. She left for Germany Aug. 26. The team she is on is the Herner Turner Club. It is a Division I DBBL League Team. If anyone would like to contact her, her e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
