Edge Homes put on a Pumpkin Bash and we were able to get some wrist bands. I was super impressed with how much stuff they had there for free. There was funnel cake, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, drinks, cotton candy and I'm sure more food that we just didn't see. They had a live band playing and a pumpkin painting contest. Jeremy, Clara, and Joe all entered, but none of them won.
We never got a good picture of Joe's since it was pretty much what you see in this picture of the painting process.
*Sunday was a hard day for me, I had gotten very little sleep all weekend, and I had a huge headache. I had put Jack down for a nap and was hoping my kids would let me get a little rest in (Jeremy was away.) After a long while Joe finally agreed to let me get a little nap in as long as he could tuck me in! He followed me to my room and helped me put the covers over myself, and then told me good night as he left.
*Joe had gotten out of bed after we put him in bed for the night. He needed to use the bathroom, so he didn't get into trouble at all. But as I was putting him back in his bed, he said to his Winnie the Pooh, "Good job staying in bed Winnie the Pooh, you are a good boy!"
*Joe likes to have his toys watch him play on the iPad when he gets his screen time. He often plays an app that has the characters of Cars in it. Today I overheard him pretend to be his McQueen car and say, "Hey there's me!" to the game.

Jackson turned 7 months old this week. I was looking at some of his newborn pictures and got a little emotional. I can't believe the journey we've had with this little guy as he went from this:

My oldest got baptized this weekend. She was baptized with 6 other people just from our ward! It was a busy day, but she glowed and said she wished she could get baptized everyday! Since there were so many kids getting baptized, we didn't have to be in charge of any talks or anything. The ward primary did it all, so it was nice to just show up and participate.

My oldest child turned 8 years old yesterday. I can remember being 8. She seems so grown up in so many ways.
