Halloween Fun

Since life has been absolutely nuts lately I have some catching up to do for documenting purposes.  This is just a little bit of what our fall festivities were like this year.  First we hit up Halloween at the Zoo like we have done every year.  Sadly, we usually do this with Abbey and her girls, but Presley was sick : (  We met Kim and Will at the zoo and I must say we had the CUTEST cowgirl, unicorn, and Elmo around!

Next came our trip to Huber's Farm to pick our pumpkins.  Our trip started out with some rain, but it ended quickly.  Honestly, I will take a little wind and rain if it means I can go during the week and miss out on the crazy crowds.  I can be anti-social  ;)  The girls had a great time petting the animals and it was so much fun to watch.  Hadley really got into it this year, and she and Camy ran all around the pumpkin patch. Aside from watching the kids my favorite part was the fried biscuits and homemade apple butter!

And lost but not least, we trick-or-treated at my mom's house.  We ate chili and let the kids have pretty much whatever they wanted.  Hadley was a pro at trick-or-treating!  She would walk up to the door with her chubby little unicorn belly, hold her bag open, and say "Tweet!"  Too cute for words!!  Of course she did not want to ride in the stroller or be carried.  Her little 18 month old legs walked all around the neighborhood.  Will and Camy did really well too and had tons on candy to show for it. We had a great time!

December Update

We are now #46 on the wait list!! Very encouraging to move up 8 spots and for 10 orphans to get referred to their forever families. The best part is one of those referrals was for the my best friend!! I cannot wait for the Petersen's to meet their daughter and for her to meet her precious parents. It's pretty much the next best thing to us getting a referral! God is good ALL the time....... even while we wait and wonder.
More posting to come about our move, Thanksgiving, and life for the Burt's.
