I hope everyone had a great Halloween! Our day started out with church as usual. After church, we came home and grabbed some lunch. Steve hasn't been feeling well, so he laid down to rest and I ran out to the grocery store. Remember back in the summer, I mentioned that I was having a hard time getting onto a regular schedule? Well, this is probably the first time since then that I have been to the grocery store to full-on buy groceries. I've been there picking up this or that, but it's just been crazy.
I have even let my couponing go (gasp!) and so today, my receipt said I only saved 12%. Boo. Anyway, I did manage to get everything I needed (I think...didn't really make a list...baby steps!) and still came out about $10 under budget.
Tonight we went over to our friend's house (the Moores) who have been hosting our LifeGroup this month. Have I told you how much I love my LifeGroup? For the Station Hillers, I'm sure you've heard me say that about a time or twenty. :) We did hot dogs and s'mores around the fire pit. Between that and the wonderful company, it was heaven!
On another note, if you don't know already, next Sunday is Orphan Sunday. Our church is recognizing this day and has asked for family photos of those that have adopted or are in the process. This weekend, I was determined to get the scrapbook pages done for our dossier and part of those pages are 2 posed family photos. I quickly disovered I didn't have hardly ANY recent family photos with all three of us in the picture. So, when I found out they needed one for Orphan Sunday, I figured we'd better just take one. And here we are...
this post, you'll know what a miracle that was.
Anwyay, I did get those pages done for our dossier. I had one family picture from Easter, so I used it and the other one, we had to stage at my sister's house last night. Considering it was another on-the-fly picture, thought it turned out pretty good.
One last thing about our adoption...we have a fundraiser starting soon. I am pretty excited about it and hope that each of you that keep up with me on this blog will help me on it. It's not anything huge, but more information to come soon, I hope! Stay tuned!
