This year has been one of my favorite falls throughout all my time in Oregon. It hasn't been too rainy, in fact, it's been quite sunny and warm most days. The leaves are changing such bright colors and the trees in Eugene are gorgeous right now. We've been able to go outside a lot and Dustin loves playing in the leaves. Audrey likes to eat them. She's walking all over the place now and has a huge vocabulary. Her first word was "hi" and every time she sees a phone she picks it up and says, "hi" into the receiver. The best news so far is that we've turned in our adoption paperwork!!! Woo hoo! We just have to pass our 2 hour interview and home inspection and then it's just a matter of time before it gets finalized. For anyone who's confused about her name change, we picked Audrey Elizabeth Hess for her new birth certificate. Her birth name was Liz, but we like Audrey better. So everyone please pray for us that things will go quickly and smoothly and she can finally be ours!!

Here's a few pics of our trip to the Pumpkin Patch. Dustin loves feeding the goats and driving the tractor. He asks to go to the farm at least once a day.

Oh Dustin in so cute in those pumpkins! I miss those kids so much. We need to find a time to get together. I'm sure everything will go great after they read my essay responses to the survey they sent me.
