Happy Jonah Day - whoops - Happy Columbus Day

The kids and I had a fun time today learning about Columbus and Jonah. They both liked boats right?? Here are the kids enjoying the Jonah watercolor book.

C loves any kind of paint product!

The girls creating...


When the watercolor dries we will move on to the Columbus festivities!! Hope you are having a good one.

Run Austin Run

David did it! He completed his first half marathon this morning!! Yeah, I am so proud of him. I wish the kids and I could have been there to support him but I am really trying to take it easy as I am 33 weeks pregnant today (and so far no bed rest :).

The Great Pumpkin Patch

Our family ventured out to the pumpkin patch yesterday and had a great time. We wanted to go right after church but we had to wait for the downpour to finish (don't get me wrong, I am grateful for rain). David and the kids actually had a puddle stomping afternoon before the pumpkins. Ahhh, I love October.

Love the pumpkins!

The kids enjoying the pumpkins.

C romping in some of the pumpkins!

And a fun picture of B enjoying her snack time yesterday - as always, love the hair :)

Go Tigers!!

A has started playing soccer a few weeks ago and we finally remembered to bring the camera to take a few pictures of her. She is on the Tigers and plays for the YMCA. Our goal for her is to have fun - and every week she does :) Enjoy these pictures from the game this morning.

The fans: B and C enjoying a pre-game snack

A kicking in practice - she is in the pink soccer socks!

A's Bike Party

I am back!! I cannot believe it has been so long but well, here I am again. I just love October, don't you??

A has learned to ride her bike without training wheels and today was the big party to celebrate. David made a cake and we got a few balloons and headed to the park (with bike of course :) It worked out fabulous because some of our friends happened to be there and we really got to have a "party" for it. Thanks friends.

A's pink cake (well inside is anyway) - yummy!

Finishing a lap around the playground

Enjoying the cake with friends :)

And for the grand finale...
