In a Month

Show me "sad", Julianne!

In a month, since our last update, Julianne has had lots of fun! We had a pretty busy month, but enjoyed it very much. A very exciting part of this month was that we closed on our house!! I can't remember if I posted on the blog or not that we'd been looking for a house since April. We didn't have any prospects by July and it didn't look to promising, so we decided to rent for a while. We moved into the rental and 6 weeks later were informed that there was a problem with the construction and we had to move out. Two days after that we made an offer on the "perfect" house. We're currently painting and doing some small renovations and will be moving into the house in the next few weeks. We're so excited to be Zachary residents!

On the first weekend in October, we went to Lafayette to visit Kent's parents, Julianne's Mimi and Papa. We had a great time and Julianne enjoyed spending time with her grandparents.

In the second weekend in October we spent a nice Saturday at home and Julianne spent some time "playing" daddy's guitar before we headed off to a wedding.

We were also able to attend the 2nd Annual LPCF reunion picnic that weekend. LPCF stands for Louisiana Pediatric Cardiac Foundation. We were able to see several of our "heart friends" and enjoy some good food and play time for Julianne.

Mommy totally failed at getting a good picture of the whole group. :/

Releasing balloons!

Julianne decided to squeeze hers until it popped instead.

In the third weekend in October Julianne attended her first birthday party for a friend. She went to her friend Myles' party and although she was a little too young and wobbly to run with the bigger kids, she had fun bouncing in one of the fun jumps, playing with hula hoops and seeing her friend.

We also had our harvest picnic at church that Sunday, during which Julianne spent most of her time on the swing. That girl LOVES to swing!!

Finally, this weekend we had plans to attend a Halloween function at one of the church's here in Zachary on Friday, but it was postponed. Maybe next year. We did get to take Julianne Trick-or-Treating for the first time! She'd tell the people, "Chich-a-cheat!!!" We loved it! We only went to a few neighborhood houses along with my parents and grandparents.

"Trick-or-treat, Grandpa, Grammie and Aunt Laura!"

I really wish I hadn't make this video SIDEWAYS, but I did. If anyone knows how to fix it please let me know. :) This is Julianne trick or treating at my grandparents' house, Julianne's greatgrandparents - PawPaw and MawMaw.

Afterward, we took our little pumpkin to eat with my family at Sammy's.
