Happy Halloween!

As always the kids had a great time.  Chelsi REALLY liked Halloween.  She would happily go up to the door, take one piece of candy and hold it until the next house.  At the next house she'd put that one piece of candy in her bucket for another one.  Each time she very politely told everyone thank you.  She was just the cutest thing ever!  She'd walk up to each house like she'd done this a million times before.  She is too funny!

On the drive to grandma's.

After Chels got an apple from Great Grandma, that's ALL she wanted.  She figured out how to open the baggie on the way to the next we just let her eat it.  Could be worse, right?!


We had to make the trip to USCIS for Chelsi's Certificate of Citizenship (I lost the fight), so we decided to stay the night and make a weekend of it.  Everyone was excited to stay in a hotel, we get to do that rarely.

Chelsi and Kaelin listening their headphones on the way there.  Chelsi thought it was pretty funny.

When you're a family this big, this is what your hotel room looks like.

We met up with other adoptive families, went for pizza and to the Enchanted Forest in the park.  Neatest thing I think I've ever seen for a family to do where everyone enjoys it.  Here's Chase with his buddy Spiderman.  Thanks Amy and Debbie for meeting up with us.  Even though I was a little under the weather it was a GREAT time!

Kind of like Spanglish, I guess.

Anyways, the few words I can say in Korean I try to teach the kids.  Chelsi and I were playing peekaboo (her favorite) and I told her how to say it in Korean and played with her that way.....kka goong, kka goong. 

So now when Chelsi wants to play peekaboo, she covers her eyes and yells peekgung, peekgung!

It's hillarious.

Goofy Girls

The girls were trying on their Halloween costumes to make sure they fit (hand-me-downs) and Kaelin and I decided to start trying on all the masks we had.  We've kept everything throughout the years so as each of the four get older the younger ones can pick from what we have.

Kae decided she wanted to try the teeth we got for Cole's costume. 

I tried to tell her this is what happens when you don't brush your teeth :) .


Just a quick snapshot of the girls watching a cartoon before we left for church Sunday morning.  It was just too cute for dad to pass up.

OM Gosh! I can’t believe I forgot to post

Kae's soccer pictures.  I've had them ready to go for weeks now.  I guess that shows how much real computer time I get.  Here she is:

And she finally volunteered to be goalie!  She might be an athlete afterall.

Happy Birthday Baby!!

I know, I'm a little late, but September's been CRAZY!

First I ordered Chelsi's birthday present site-to-store from Walmart 1 1/2 weeks before her birthday.  Finally 1 1/2 weeks after her birthday, Walmart gave up on it coming from the manufacturer as well and credited my money back.  Luckily, I got tired of waiting and went to Kmart and paid a few dollars more, but got her her birthday present.  She's now the proud owner of a Barbie Tough Trike!

Here's pictures of her and her birthday cake.  She even blew out her own candles.  I was shocked.  The green on her hand is after she put her hand in the icing. :)

Just throwing in a funny picture.  She came up from the playroom one evening like this.  She is so much like her brother Chase.
