Where did the month go?

Part I of the catch-up

I stitched the Fall is in the air(Ruth)and the Boo pumpkin(Shara) for two swaps.

Amy and I went on a hayride at the pumpkin patch with friends. It was a chilly day and the kids had fun. Did I mention muddy? Amy took off running and slid in the mud.

Homecoming football game was the 9th and the dance was the 10th.

Melissa played volleyball this fall but our Rec only had three teams so they also joined with the Bonner Springs Rec. The Rec had a silly volleyball tournament for the three teams since the season was short. I had no idea what was going on at first during the tournament because my daughter failed to tell me. The ref kept the score close by trading out a beach ball when one team was ahead and that usually tied it up. It was pretty funny that ball was all over the place. Than when there was a real good server they made her put her head to a bat and go around in circles five times and than serve the ball. The second set they let the parents play but they couldn't hit the ball over the net only players could. The third set was if your team scored one player had to come out each time so that was fun to watch. All the coaches ended up getting whipped cream pies in the face. It was a fun day.

I participated in two more swaps one Halloween and one fall swap one was "Heidi's Homemade Halloween Swap" and my partner was Shara from The Monkey Box who was also my 4th of July swap partner. Look at all the goodies she sent me. Thanks, Shara!

The next swap was hosted by Lori of Morning Glories and Moonflowers and my partner was Ruth and her blog is Farm Girl in my Heart.

She sent all these wonderful goodies. Thanks, Ruth!

Amy's head hit the concrete.

The THS cheerleaders have a yearly fundraiser "Little Leaders" they have a short clinic and the girls get to cheer at a Friday night game. Since this is Kaitlyn's last year she begged and bribed Jaime to sign-up for it. Jaime thinks cheerleaders are blood sucking vampires! Crazy girl! I think she had fun and Kaitlyn was happy.

We started the month off with Amy attending a birthday party, the girls had fun dancing and playing together. Amy still talks about the party naming her friends off and ending with Loooola!
