October in Pictures.

October was a pretty busy and fun month for the Buhlers.  You've already seen our trip to Utah, so this update will not include anything about said trip.  We have definitely not let school get in the way of our fun!  That being said, we're both cracking out the books and trying to get through this semester and have just enrolled for next semester.  The joys of school.


After three attempts and horrible weather, Nicole, Holly and I were finally able to go to the Renaissance Festival in Kansas City.  Nicole had interviewed a lot of the cast members previously for an article, so we got all the ins and outs from her.  Holly hooked us up with free tickets, so it was a pretty good day!  We bought turkey legs, searched for funnel cakes, watched wrestling, jousting, and lots of "magic tricks."  We actually had pretty good weather that day and enjoyed our time together.  Huzzah for friends!


Our next big adventure was the following Friday.  Adam and I went with a group to the American Royal Rodeo.  I had been a few times while at college and actually loved it!  I had made Adam where his "most cowboyish outfit" and he and Justin turned out to be twins!  I took the opportunity to wear my giant Texas belt buckle.  Despite getting lost in the train yards of Kansas City, we had a good time and enjoyed Perkins afterwards.



The next morning, I was feeling crafty and went with Danielle to the Super Saturday activity.  I actually hadn't signed up for any of the crafts, so Danielle let me tag along with her as she made a snowman family out of tube socks.  Four hours and too much discussion later, we had a finished project!  We wanted to make sure that the entire family matched together, but each individual snowman was unique.  Yeah...it was a bit much, but they turned out pretty cute, eh?



To end the month, we of course had Halloween festivities.  We only had two trick or treaters this year (which is two more than last year!) - my niece and nephew.  Bubba's TMNT outfit made us think of Adam's when he was younger...pretty cute!  Lili made a perfect Cinderella!

After our visitors, we made our way to a costume party.  Adam came as "Three Hole Punch Jim" from The Office (he even let me gel his hair to get that messy Jim look!).  I was representing England as a Royal Mail postman, complete with authentic shirt, jacket, and postbag.  We enjoyed the other costumes, brain cupcakes, bobbing for apples, Wii Sports, and,  of course, the company!  It was a good way to end our busy and fun month!
