November came and went, but we got to enjoy some beautiful weather in the evenings and of course some turkey on Thanksgiving. We hope everyone enjoyed their Turkey Day.

In October we celebrated Ella Kobli’s 2nd birthday in Fishers, IN. We also celebrated Mindy and Gina’s 30th birthday with a tailgate party on Purdue’s campus during the Homecoming game.

October also brought us Halloween, and one little rascal of a pirate. This was Aiden’s first Halloween where he could walk the trick or treat trail, although he came down with flu-bug and wasn’t himself!

August and September were both very busy months around the McConnell house. We attended the Lake County fair for the first time in many years. Aiden was exposed to many of the animals and pets that he reads about in his books.

We also had the Hindson Annual Men’s Grill-Off, which Zac took first place this year for his black and bleu steak sandwiches.

Mindy’s family celebrated an incredible milestone in life, Grandma Nowak’s 90th birthday. We enjoyed a great dinner at Cafe Borgia in Munster with all of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

We also celebrated Maura and Greg Gantz’s wedding at the end of September. We were able to visit with alot of family that came in from out of town, including Aiden’s Nana.

In September, we visited County Line Orchard for apple and pumpkin picking with the Wenglarz Family. Aiden really enjoyed his first “fresh” apple and couldn’t get enough!
