Fall Fun

First of all I did two posts at one sitting so keep scrolling down to see more pictures. I can't believe it is fall again. I decided I better get busy updating my blog because we have a lot of big events coming up in the near future..... Our 10th wedding anniversary, Paul's 1st 'Forever Family' anniversary, Natalie's 7th birthday, the new arrival of our niece Rachel from China and of course Christmas is just right around the corner. Yes...our children are goofy!!!!
Paul is just so stinking cute.
Once again my children are goofy.....I cannot get a decent group picture of them to save my life.
We had our fall harvest dinner at church today. The church was decorated with cute fall stuff.

Families United Through International Adoption Harvest Party

I am only a month behind schedule updating our blog. My friend Carrie graciously offered to take care of our international adoptive fall party. I originally thought that we would be getting ready to make our first trip to Armenia (haha). Carrie did a great job putting the party on and her husband Jeff did a great job tolerating Carrie during the whole process (thanks Jeff). The weather was terrific and the kids had lots of fun!! Josie (Carrie and Jeff's daughter born in South Korea) was the cutest "Pooh dressed up like a honey bee" that I have ever seen.
Carrie made these neat cards expressing a fall greeting in our children's languages.

The only group photo I got. The other kids were too busy having fun outside to come in for pictures.

Audrey, Riley, Luke and Paul are in the tunnel and Andrew and his friend Austin are on top.

We could use a little more help

Hey everyone.......We're still fundraising. We've seemed to hit a bump in the road. I sent out a mass email promoting the items that we are selling to help bring our sweetie home. So far only 2 people have ordered items or made a donations. Please feel free to pass our blog onto anyone who you think would be interested in our items.

Here's a video that I copied from another Eastern Europe adoptive mom's blog, grab a tissue!!!
