Jack O' Lantern

Kaylee helped carve a jack o' lantern today.

She did not want to stick her hand inside the pumpkin to dig out all the yucky stuff.

Hand washing was much more interesting.

Leah & Samuel Visit Indiana

Leah and Samuel are visiting Indiana this week. Last night we had an opportunity to get together with our West Coast crew.

Kaylee and Samuel took a little time to get reacquainted at Great-Grandpa and Great-Grandma McLallin's last night.

Samuel really checked Kaylee out. He was very curious about her. How cute!

Thanks to Aunt Peggy for the Vera Bradley aprons. Kaylee loves hers. She insisted on wearing it home.

Kaylee Walking

Kaylee is now walking with her walker on a regular basis. She is doing great! (I apologize for the poor video quality; it was shot on my cell phone.)

Jam Session

Logan, Kaylee and McKenzie sat down for a jam session after church on Sunday. As you can see, Kaylee was too excited about playing the piano to even turn around for a photo.
Also, Kaylee saw Dr. Wooden at Riley today. She received a great report. He said that the healing is going well and he is happy with the way her incision looks. She is to go back in the spring for a follow-up to see if an additional surgery will be necessary. Again, thank you to everyone who has been praying for her healing. We are truly blessed!

Harvest has started in Northeast Indiana. Kaylee got in on the action last Saturday. She rode with Uncle Mike in the combine and watched Great-Grandpa Lewie fill the grain bin with corn.

Two Weeks Later...

Kaylee is continuing to heal. Her incision looks great and she seems to be feeling well. She has a follow-up appointment with Dr. Wooden at Riley on Monday, October 15. Hopefully he is as happy with her progress as we are.

Special note: As you can see from this post and my previous post, Kaylee has become quite fond of jewelry. She was awarded the necklace she is wearing at school for being a good listener and helping put toys away - maybe I should try awarding her with jewelry at home. :) I'm not sure that she has taken it off since she received it. The second day she wore it the clasp broke, so now she has a beautiful green paperclip holding things together.
