Fall Festival

Tonight we went to the PTA carnival at Jake's school. 

The kids loved it. 
They had bounce houses, games, and face painting!

They also had cotton candy, popcorn and snow cones...

And eating a snow cone is something she takes pretty seriously.

So.... anyone notice what's new in that first picture?

Brian got his wheelchair today!
We are so excited. The biggest difference it's made already was how much more patient and pleasant Brian was tonight. Normally an outing like this is so hard and tiring for him, he's pretty stressed after a few minutes. 
Also we are having some people come over tomorrow to see about drawing up blueprints for the house. These changes are starting to happen, and it's really exciting!

P.S. I was blog surfing again today and came across a post entitled How to be a Happy Mom. I'm laughing at myself a little, if I had just waited 24 hours I could have linked to her post and saved myself a couple of hours of writing. It's really worth a read though if you have a minute.

I'm so glad things are moving forward in a way that will help you all to enjoy life more fully! Hooray! And that you all felt well enough to take this outing. ; )
