We had a great time Saturday night at our Halloween party. There were around 150 people at the McMullen's clubhouse. We had games set up outside for the kids to play, hot dogs and all the trimmings for dinner, a haunted house for the older kids and trunk-or-treating for everyone! It was really fun and Jessica really seemed to have a good time.
Sunday at lunch we met the Sloans and Mom and Dad for lunch. Mom and Dad left Monday morning for a few weeks in the Phillipians. This is their 3 trip, I think, and they really seem to enjoy it. They work hard, since it is a mission trip but it seems to be very rewarding for them.
I am going to try and include pictures of Saturday night. HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO EVERYONE!!!!

Good Grief! I never thought getting a blog set up would take so long...of course I am as close to a computer dummy as you get! Laurie has been telling me just to do it, that is what she did-but her's looks way better than mine!
Jessica has started school this fall in Valdosta. She had been going to Quitman but since we moved, I was having to take her back and forth. She really likes it and has a great teacher! Last week-end she was "ill" and so I doctored her and after no results, I took her to the Dr. on Monday. She had 2 ruptured eardrums. It it sounds painful-it was, but she didn't fuss alot and probably not as much as I would have! After a week of ear drops and Augmentin, I think she is on the road to recovery!
We are having our church Halloween get together tonight, so Jess and I have been making cupcakes!!! That was alot of fun!
Most of you know that Kenny and his Dad and brother build houses. They have 2 being built down the road from us and hopefully 1 is SOLD!!!!! The only thing better will be when #2 is finished and sold!!
If you are reading this and don't know us, let me tell you about our lives. Kenny and I have been married for 9 years. We have a 6 year old daughter who is the center of our lives ( and just about everyone who knows her!) She was born on 1/11/01 and has Down Syndrome. We did not know it before she was born and after the shock---she has been our little angel!!!
Guess I better close now-Jess is ready for some lunch!
