October Already!!

Well, my friends, it's October already! This year has seemed to really fly by, which is fine with me since I am waiting for the long-awaited day when I can be a stay at home mom...someday in the hopefully near future.

We are still stumped on what to be for Halloween. JM wanted to be Sam Flynn and Gem from Tron Legacy, but those costumes would take weeks to make, and we only have a couple to work with before Halloween is here!

So, we are still brainstorming to think of something fun we can throw together!

Thanksgiving is coming up too, my second favorite holiday ever (Christmas is my super fav, Thanksgiving a close second, and both just a month apart!!!). Our adopted brother and sister Matt and Erin and baby Natalie get to come for a visit Thanksgiving week, we can't wait!
Just look at this little cutie!! You'd be excited to see her soon too!


JM Survived his ankle surgery this week. He is doing surprisingly well. He hasn't had any bad reactions to any of his meds like he did with his shoulder surgery last year, and we've kept him on a strict pain med routine so he has hardly felt any pain these last few days. Hoo-rah! My dream come true. It was such a nightmare last time trying to do everything with him in such bad shape. We have been really blessed this time around! He'll be on crutches for about 6 weeks and then in a walking boot another 6 or 8 weeks. Here comes another 6 months of physical therapy! Man!

Ok, and lastly, cutie Jeddy leaves for his mission to Paraguay in just a couple more weeks! We are so proud of him and can't wait for him to begin this amazing two year adventure of service to the Lord. It has been such a joy having him stay with us these last few months, he is such a sweet boy and we just love him to bits! You are going to be a great missionary!! We are going to miss his evening guitar serenades, he is so amazing on that thing! Love you Buddy!

And that's a wrap of things we are looking forward to these next couple of months! We'll try to keep you posted! XOXO
