We celebrated with the Walter side of the family on November 30th. Matthew helped bake his cake and frosted it himself. He was pretty proud of his creation.

Laurie, Mal's physical therapist, was very instrumental in getting the application submitted. She also helped to get Mallory properly fitted to her bike.

I listed them as follows:
1. Sleep (did anyone doubt that this would be top on my list?)
2. Behavior (mainly attention span and the inability to stay focused)
She immediately recommended a higher dosage of melatonin for sleep (we are actually doubling the dosage). She is going to research meds for behavior. I was very pleased with the visit. We go back for follow-up on December 18th.
Mallory and I spent the rest of the day in Wichita. She got to pick where to eat lunch (Chili's). We then spent a good hour at Toys-R-Us. She had fun telling me what she would like for Christmas. We stopped in at Kohl's and grabbed a few items on sale. It was a day well spent!

Matthew drew this picture at school yesterday. It's nice to know that he leans towards the humanitarian side. The election has intrigued him. They even got to vote at school. Matt came home and said that he voted for "the gray-haired guy".

Hannah received a tricycle as a birthday gift in April from her Grandpa and Grandma Frese. She was pretty excited about it and this fall she has really taken off with riding it.

Gina and Maxton
I traveled to Alta Vista with my friends (Jackie Walsh, Terry Kiser, and Beth Kiser) and our 9 kids. My sisters were organizing a sand volleyball tournament (sounds kinda crazy for October!). But anyway, they needed some more players. The weather was perfect. Our feet were sore by midafternoon from running and jumping in the sand barefooted. The kids spent all afternoon at the park and played and played and played. My friends and I played on Amber's Team with her husband (Matt) and our cousin (Jeremy). My little sister, Brandy, had a team with her husband's family. Neither team won the tournament, but we still had a great time!
The kids were riding on each other's backs, pretending that they were horses. They had a blast! Their laughs are infectious.
We planted some grass seed this fall. It seems like it's a never ending task at maintaining a lawn. Hannah likes to help. She had fun spreading the straw.
