Happy Halloween!

October was a busy month for us. Sarae went to her grandmother's church's fall festival where she was able to go down the blow up slides, sit in a fire truck and eat some yummy sweets. Next we went to Green Meadows farm with the Ziegler family. Those of you who have followed the blog from the beginning should remember Leslie Ziegler as one of the people who went to China with me to pick up Sarae. Her husband and two children met us at the farm for a fun morning. The kids got to hold/pet many different farm animals, ride a pony, milk a cow and finally pick their own pumpkin. The next weekend we went with our friends, Shery, Elyn, Francie and Henry to the zoo for Boo Bash. The kids got to dress up and trick or treat at the zoo. Beautiful weather and lots of fun! Finally, we went to Sea World for trick or treating which was great.

Sarae is growing up so quickly. She is now singing songs like the alphabet song, The Itsy Bitsy Spider, and Baa Baa Black Sheep. She still has some difficulties with certain letters. She says Mook for Look and Pooh for Who. She is also getting very independent and when I put on shoes on her that she didn't want to wear, she became very angry and stuck her finger in my face and said, "I no listen to you Momma!" A preview for the teenage years I am told : ) Hope everyone had a wonderful October and we'll talk with you soon!
