Fall Pictures

So here are some fall highlights I have not had time to blog about. I apologize now to the 2 or 3 of you that check our blog for not posting all of these pictures sooner. But as the saying goes, better later than never. :)
1st day of school picture
(that was actually taken on the 2nd day of school)
Handsome Jaden loves preschool
Jaden's first flying kite experience, I found a bunch of kites on clearance at HEB, so I got them for party favors for Jaden's birthday party, but we had to test them out first. He had so much fun. There was not a whole lot of wind, but he was determined to make wind, so he ran and ran until his kite would fly. Which is why his face is sooo red. And as for the outfit, I guess we were probably playing dress up before we went outside.

Will, Jaden & Abby playing dress up at school, and if you can't tell by the last few pictures, this entire summer Jaden played around with some girl stuff, like tu-tus. But it was just a phase, he is over it and on to dinosaurs. ALL THINGS DINOSAURS!
Josh & I went to a lovely wedding
We had Dad's Night at school, Jaden made the number 8 picture
And they had a wiggle worm train, we have had such a great fall and as Thanksgiving approaches it reminds me how thankful I am for all of our blessings

Neighborhood Block Party

Our neighborhood had a block party the weekend before Halloween. The catered Carinos Italian food, had a bouncy house for the kids and gave away gift cards. We won a $25 JC Penny card! Yea! They held it at the park, and the weather was great! We got to meet a few more neighbors and the kids had so much fun.
Of course Brody wants to do whatever Jaden is doing, including rock climbing
When you tell Brody to say cheese, this is usually the face you get

Jaden played on the bouncy house for at least an hour and each time he flew down the slide a little faster. We are so happy in our new neighborhood and glad they do fun things like this.

Silly boys :)

Halloween continued

Look closely at Brody's face to see how excitied he was to see a mini pony at the Pumpkin Festival at church
Our little Donald Duck, he had an adorable donald hat to go with his outfit, but refused to wear it

Our little group of trick or treaters

This was Brody's first year trick or treating, and he acted like he had been doing it for years. Of course it is much easier to mimic and older sibling

The costume parade at school

The boys and I

We did tons of fun stuff for Halloween this year. We went to a pumpkin carving party, a Pumpkin Festival with a petting zoo, hayrides, pumpkin painting and games. Sam, Jessica & Ryder came to visit us, and of course we went Trick or Treating. Brody would run up to the door, at least 10 paces behind the other kids and would say "Treat" " Thank you" No tricks for him. And then he would run back to the wagon to check out his treat. If it looked good, he would try to eat it, and if not he would run back to the next house. It was really cute. And Jaden just ran from house to house with all of the older kids we were with. Our neighborhood is perfect for trick or treating. I know next year will be even more fun!
