October is finally over;  thanks to everyone that supported me through this year's 31 for 21 Blogging Challenge.  It was a busy month; not only did I blog every single day, but I managed to work full time, work 25 hours of overtime, help keep three boisterous kids fed and dressed and still managed to avoid the cold that everyone seems to have.  A special thanks to my husband, who put up with proofreading and my self-imposed deadline crabbiness.  

On a more personal note, today is our 15th wedding anniversary (yes, on Hallowe'en).  Happy Anniversary honey!  I love you.

This month, our Medical Monday posts were featured on Downs Side Up.  Thanks Hayley!

We had our eighth T-21 Blog Hop on October 21. Join us for three days of excellent blogging on November 21! 

Our Facebook page is approaching 900 fans! Welcome to all our new friends. Please share!

Don't forget our Facebook Group!  Down Wit Dat - The Group is an all inclusive special needs discussion forum.  Join the conversation!

I'm looking forward to judging October's Photo Theme "Happy Hallowe'en!" Results to be posted tomorrow on Down Wit Dat's Facebook page. November's Theme to be announced at the same time.

...And that's the news.  Keep the stories and information coming!

A very Happy and safe Hallowe'en to you and your families!
