Part 2

Ok, so it did take me as long as I was afraid it might to get this second half up! Enjoy it anyway, better late than never...

In short, our October was the month of company. We had visits from my (Tonya) folks, Kevin's folks, Kevin's sister and brother in law and family, and Tonya's sister. Whew! Here are some photos of the fun.



Tonya's Mom with Avery

For Brad's birthday, he got a visit from (one of) Amy's alter egos

Kevin cooked another fantastic meal from the grill

Avery with all of her grandparents!

On Halloween we carved the pumpkin you saw with Avery in the last post


I got to scoop out the guts


Amber and I also made caramel apples

Last, earlier this month, Kevin and I met up with a friend from my Tucson days. She is now a student at Texas Tech and plays for the volleyball team. They were here in Lawrence playing the KU team (we won't talk about how it went... sorry Karlyn). It was great to see her for just a brief moment!

So I believe that catches me up for now. But, not for long. Avery is now into solid foods and I have some great photos to share of that, and of course Thanksgiving is next week, and then Christmas... Wow! Does it ever slow down??

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

It was a great visit up there and I am so looking forward to another of Kevin's cookouts.

I can't believe how quickly time flies! It was so fun to be with everyone. Have a great Thanksgiving, eat fair amounts of turkey and tons of pie. LOL
Avery, Grams and Grandaddy love you!
