Halloween 2017

(The cutest one year old out there!)


Becca, Blake, and Liz made these cute skeleton shirts.  Bec had seen a similar shirt online and didn’t want to spend the money they were asking for it!  So we made them.  Black shirts, white paint, and a blown up picture from the internet of the rib cage and we had Halloween shirts!

Just love her little baby skeleton!  <3


Ellie was an adorable pumpkin.  Blake a lumber jack.


Sammi participated for a bit.  She dressed up as a witch.

Jessi and Lizzy (with Becca and Daddy) wanted to hand out candy.

Joy was a zombie.  I don’t know why.  But she got the idea several weeks ago and she wasn’t letting it go.  So we went with it!!  Sammi did her makeup and Jes made her costume.  She was totally in character the whole night!  She is so funny!!


Bella was a Ballerina.  She changed into her costume when she got home, then layed on the couch.  She wasn’t interested in walking around outside – you crazy people!

Alex had no idea it was happening – the joys of autism -  so he stayed inside and danced to his music.

Jason decided that we would have a fire in our fire pit.  It was a chilly night and absolutely perfect for a fire!  We had a great time, sitting around, handing out candy, eating candy, laughing and talking.  A great Halloween!

Will this ever end?

I was watching a show today on Netflix and it was the Christmas special. The music, the family, the lights, the feels....I am not a crier, but there was definitely a wetness to my eyes. PLEASE process, be fast and let me get my boy!  I’m irrational and just want him HOME!

Where we are in process…Visa applications going to Embassy tomorrow.  One week into I800 wait.   (Still PRAYING for a December pick up!)

Kai, do you understand we are coming?  Do you understand how much we physically ache to have you home?  How grumpy and irritable we are getting because we want you HERE, not represented as a pile of papers on someone’s desk?  We want to touch you and see you.  We want to count your toes and fingers.  We want to hear your laugh – and see you eat!

Kai, do we understand how hard this is going to be for you?  How everything you have ever known is going to be GONE – poof!  one day because two strangers came and picked you up?  Do we understand the depth of trust it will take for you to reach out and let us help you?

We have never meet you, Kai, but we love you!

Sedated EEG

Results are in.

Still abnormal with spike wave activity

Increase his meds – again.

Sigh.  Here’s hoping that helps.
