Fall Is Here!!!

Well, fall has arrived and we've been busy. I know, I know, it's been forever since we posted. We are now pretty addicted to facebook, so we haven't been very good about keeping up with our blog. We have really enjoyed the last couple of months. Stephen's dad and mom came up at the beginning of September for Labor Day weekend. We enjoyed our usual dining, dominos, shopping and fun. It was Stephen's mom's birthday and it was great to celebrate it with her. Of course, we didn't get any photos. Some day we'll all remember to take some pics! Thanks mom and dad for coming to visit.
A few weeks later my mom came to visit and we got to go to the State Fair of Texas. We all had a blast, especially Hope.

Stephen and Hope got to carve their first pumpkin the other day. Stephen had never carved a pumpkin before, and Hope really enjoyed watching while making a mess with the pumpkin innards! She freaked out when we turned out the lights and lit the Jack-o-lantern.

Our church had its Harvest Fest on the Wednesday before Halloween. Stephen was in charge of it and it was a pretty big deal. We moved everything outside this year and rented a construction pole light to light the parking lot. Hope got to play games, bounce in the bounce house, ride the hay ride and collect candy from all the trunk-or-treaters while dressed as a pink leopard. We hear those are endangered and only indigenous to Howe, Texas :).

Our latest, and very exciting news is that we found out that our baby is a BOY! I'm a little overwhelmed by the thought of raising a boy since I only know about girls, but we are thrilled to have a healthy baby and to continue the Wilhite line. Thank you Lord for being so good!
