My office / Computer room: Speech folder for a little girl along with some of my schoolwork in the floor.
MY bedroom floor: A pair of little gir's new red shoes to be worn for the first time tomorrow
Kitchen / laundry closet: clean clothes that have yet to be put away
Kitchen: elementary school menu, free ice cream coupon from the public library, preschool art painting of mommy and daughter, and variety of magnets (including one from my wonderful adoption agency - Lifeline!)
The downstairs bathroom: a hair bow that I think I remember asking to be put up yesterday, but just discovered as I was taking this tour tonight.
One of the upstairs bathrooms: Hello Kitty toothbrush and kids' toothpaste with the top left off. hmm, might be suspicious - I wonder who did it?
The Living Room: a little girls' elaborate set-up for movie night 4 nights ago that she has embellished and added to each night. I like how the bathroom stool is serving as a footrest. I have NO idea what the pillow in the floor is for, but earlier in the day I observed it being placed there with great care as if that was THE place it belonged. :-)
Living room: princess pumpkin that's been sitting there since halloween and a very cold strawberry shortcake that was strategically placed next to the pumpkin this evening.
A little girl's bedroom: The culprit of most of the mess (And she can't even blame it on a sibling - YET!) and more importantly, the proof that nothing is impossible with God and He truly does more than we ask or imagine! I am so very blessed in life! And so tonight, as we inch towards Thanksgiving, I am incredibly thankful for the messes in my house, and for the little one who made them! And I am thankful for the ONE who made it all possible!

Hannah loved trick-or-treating. We went early, right after school in fact. A community nearby has a street where all the businesses let kids tirck-or-treat at their stores in the afternoon. We saw several friends from school there. I loved it because it was early. She wore her costume, trick-or-treated, got lots of candy, had a blast AND we were home by 5:30. We popped popcorn, put a movie in, and handed out candy to those who came to our house.
(Hannah wasn't a bit afraid to reach in to this goulish hand for candy)
The next day was our Fall Festival at school. Hannah had a blast, but unfortunately I was kept too busy with my class to have gotten good pictures of her. Last night, we had "movie night" at our house. Hannah wanted her baby doll and animals to join us for the movie.
