October at a glance

So many fun and wonderful memories this October... 

Taking the kids to Frosty's for good behavior at school...

Grandma Sue came to visit and help while Jake was out of town.  She was such a lifesaver and made everything SO MUCH easier to have her help!  Thanks for coming mom.
For some reason I can never remember to take pictures when my mom visits, but I got TWO this time!!!

We went to lots of festivals and enjoyed so much candy!
Jansen got to hold a chicken, probably the highlight of his LIFE!
We won 3 gold fish... it helps when you know the girls working the booths...
I made 20 freezer meals and exchanged them!!!  So proud of myself!

Dressed up for parites... Reesa modeling the tail we added to her cat costume.  She was very happy!
Went to the pumpkin patch during the day on Jake's day off and did the pony rides.  Look how cute and happy Reesa looks!
Jansen Loved it too!
Mitchell trying really hard to be a good sport...
We did the family photo booth
Jansen wanted to be a pirate and kept making this face in most the pictures I'm not posting...
Then we had to carve the pumpkins we picked...
Reesa insisted we baked the seeds so she could try eating them...
Jake and Reesa drawing her pumpkin face.
This is the cutest thing... Mitchell loves to blow raspberries, and here is a precious moment of Jansen taking turns "talking" to Mitchell by blowing raspberries back.  These moments of interaction with Mitchell are so few I almost cry every time I see one!
Reesa carved her pumpkin all by herself!!!!  She did such a great job!
The kids got to wear their costumes to school, so here's me dropping them off for the day!
Happy Halloween everybody!


  1. I love the costumes and I think you look so beautiful in the green dress in your other post! I'm SO glad that mitchell gets to go to school for him and for you. I know you don't complain, but I also know how hard having such a special and choice spirit in your home can be, you are all amazing!

  2. Loved catching up with your fan! Looks like you had a fun October! And look at all those freezer meals! Way to go, lady. Such a good idea to have an exchange! Did you get anything good? Anything gross? Haha.

  3. Love your kids!! They are the cutest!
