October-What a Whirlwind!

We have been SO CRAZY BUSY in October that I have been very absent from my blogland.  I guess it's probably a good thing to be too busy to blog, but I want to remember all the fun stuff we've been doing, so here goes:

We started the month with our town's Homecoming:

We went "booing," one of our favorite family traditions:

Check out those spooks!

Can't resist the crazy eyes!

Melia's been doing a lot of writing and reading this month (so proud of her accomplishments this year!!):
 Translation: Mrs. Schmidt, I'm going to the K-1 South.  I love you.  Love, Melia Chase

We went to Columbia, Missouri to visit my brother and his wife.  The boys plus Amy and Lindsey went to the football game while mom and I took the girls shopping.  We all got in the spirit, even though events weren't conducive to a whole group picture:

We went to the Pumpkin Patch with our Home Group:

Melia and I went with my parents to see America's Got Talent Top Ten in Kansas City:

 It was really exciting and fun, mixed with a healthy dose of disappointment.  Melia's very favorite from the show (and the whole reason we went) was Jackie Evancho, and she wasn't even there!  But it was still good mommy-daughter time and we made some pretty great memories!

I've done some projects:

An IPhone Holder for my Mom's birthday
A onesie, burp rags, and a diaper holder for my sister's new foster baby

Oh, sister got a new foster baby:

I know this is a horrible picture, but I can't post her precious little face (you know, confidentiality!); trust me she is A.DOR.A.BLE!

Whew!  I hope we have enough October energy left to enjoy Halloween!


P.S. No news on the adoption front.  Still waiting on the home study.  I'll keep you posted!


  1. Looks like a busy but fun month!!! Jealous of the Fall activities! Fall is my favorite time of year! Love you friend!!!

  2. Hi Jen!!
    Thanks for the comment and link to your blog. How wonderful to get to connect with another family using the same agency and in the same place on this journey. I look forward to following you blog and moving through this process together. How incredible would it be if we even ended up traveling together??!! :) Anne
