October has come, and is almost gone!! Can you believe it! Aaron and I got to rake leaves for the second time this Fall. We have so many big, old trees in our yard (which we like) but it makes lots of leaves to rake! At the beginning of October I went to a Barn Sale with my good friend Rachel, who also lives in Hesston. We work at Cooper together. We had a blast shopping, eating cinnamon rolls, and buying artsy sale pieces. Kansas has so many craft sales in the Fall. If you ever want to come visit us, come in the Fall so you can go to some with me!
Awhile back we were invited to the wedding celebration for my sister-in-law's sister. Grace and Ben got married in Wichita, KS in Grace's home church and had the reception outside at a beautiful park by the river.
We were so excited to see my brother and sister in law!
He was my handsome date! We got to dress in sweaters and tights, because it was fairly cool. I love Fall weather!
Okay, changing the subject. HAVE YOU EVER MADE SHRIMP QUESADILLA'S??? You NEED to if you haven't! We used the recipe off the Pioneer Woman's website. DELICIOUS!
Next up..Fall Break! We made a quick trip to Garden City, KS to see the Billings family. Danielle, Aaron's sister, had a birthday and we got to celebrate with her over the weekend!
We also got to do a little child care while Danielle and Bryan had a night away together for Danielle's birthday. The kids were so sweet and fun to play with! Here is Jenna, Aaron's other sister, with Makenah and Logan. As you can see here, Makenah loves to dress up in Princess dresses.
For some afternoon fun we got out bowls of water and made aluminum foil boats and washed coins! This activity entertained the kids for well over 45 mins!
And....look at Logan wearing Uncle Bear's (Aaron's) shoes! hehe
Here's another recipe we made together. Apple pie! Proud of us mom?? :)
Lastly, Aaron and I got to spend a Saturday (yesterday) in Manhattan, KS for a KSU football game! I've never been, and it was so much fun! We got up early and drove 2 hours and found a good parking spot near the stadium! Below you can see the sunrise over all the cars and RV's. This is only a small portion of the parking lot.
We met up with some friends who had a double decker bus outside of the stadium! We had a great view from up on top!
Go Wildcats! We had great seats, thanks to my man!
October has been especially busy, and I believe November will be about the same. I will continue to update as much as possible! In other fun news, my mom is coming to visit us on November 7th! We are SO EXCITED!!!! She will fly alone, so pray for her safety! I'm sure I'll have plenty of pictures to share from that weekend!
