I am so sad to say that on November 7th, my sister's husband Jim unexpectedly passed away. This has been a shock and I would like for your to pray for Diana and her children and grandchildren. Losing Mom and then just a little over two months later losing Jim just seems more than one can bare, but we have hope in the Lord and know that we will see them both again.
On October 29th, it had been one year since we got Maylea. We had a small party for her. We wanted to keep it small and simple, so we just invited the people that were at the airport when we got home from China last year. We had ice cream and cake, and Maylea got some presents. This day was very special for all of us. Maylea had a blast playing with her cousins at the house, and she enjoyed all of her presents.
On Sunday, October 24th, we had a fall harvest party for our church at our house. We played games, roasted weenies, and had a hay ride. Everyone had a blast, and all the kids dressed up in costumes. We hope this will be an annual thing.
