Full Fall of fun!

The middle of the fall brought so many fun experiences.

I was asked to be the Toastmistress at Alpha Gamma Delta's Feast of Roses luncheon which followed the initiation of the fall pledge class. Here I am with my Pearl Sister Erin (middle) and her newly initiated "Little Sis" Katy. The Monday following this event, Erin was elected Chapter President! I knew te first time I met her that she would one day be President of our chapter at ASU. So proud of her.

Quincy's preschool held a "Night with the special girl in my life," which I attended with Quincy. The children sang us songs they had learned, we participated in a scavenger hunt, and craft project. It was nice to see how he interacted with his friends and his teachers.

For Thanksgiving at Shadow Rock, all the children came together for a Thanksgiving feast, where they sat around a "table" together (that they helped create) and said what they were thankful for. Quincy was thankful that the "feast" included popcorn.

Quincy's 3rd birthday was December 10th. I wanted to do something BIG for him, because he has had a year of a lot of changes (new sister, potty training, big boy bed, food therapy, pre-school, etc). We decided on a bounce house for the kids, and a Thomas the Train theme, so I hit up the dollar store, Michael's and Goodwill to create props that would transform the park into the Island of Sodor. It was a blast!!!

Quincy had the best day of his life. It took him 2 days to recover. It took me 3 days to recover =)

Thanks to our friends and family who helped make his day so special. It was a wonderful day.
