Carissa's having a great time this morning helping us around the house. She's loving her pumpkin shoes and shirt (the ghost lights up when she moves).

We spent this last weekend in KC with my brother-in-law's family. Saturday morning we went to the Deanna Rose Farm in Overland Park. Carissa had a great time. She loved all the animals and was ready to have them all in her lap, like the cow above :)
That night we went to the rodeo at the American Royal. Barrel racing was Carissa's biggest interest. She was curious where the ladies were coming from and going to after racing around the barrels (they were entering and exiting beneath the stands).

This week I'm up in Green Lake, WI at the Vineyard Midwest Regional Pastors Retreat. It is always beautiful this time of year. It has been a great time to relax and catch up with friends, but I can not wait to get back to my baby girl.
This is a photo that Christina sent me of Carissa keeping herself busy while at the doctor's office for her 15-month check-up. She has gotten very good at using her fingers and loves playing with small things, like little post-it notes. She apparently put on quite the show telling the doctor all the words and signs she knows.

I noticed that we had a friend hiding up in the tree in our front yard. He was peacefully snoozing all day while we worked.

Today we had a family get-together (family reunion has too much baggage). It was a bit cool out but the sun was nice. Carissa a great fun with some of the other little kids. I won't even begin to describe how Carissa is related to the other girl, but she is, however distant. They were having a fun time playing chase.
