Feeling Better

"Leaf Angel"

What a Cutie!

Toby is so cute too!

Sawyer has had an icky sick week, but today he was back to his playful self! We spent some time cleaning up leaves and of course we had to jump in them. Being a desert girl, I am still amazed by this incredible autumn season! It has become my favorite season since we have lived here.

I'm excited for next week! Not only is Fall my favorite season, but Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! I'm sad that we don't get to be with our family on this great day, but we are thankful for the friends in Redding that take us in every year. Turkey isn't my favorite meal, but I love everything else! I think mashed potatoes and sweet potato pecan crunch are the winners! My only problem with this meal is everything touching...ooooo I'm sure I'll have more to write next week, but for now happy Fall!

Jasmine and spidey

Spidey golfs

Spidey gets his strength back

There wasn't any doubt when Sawyer said he was going to be Spiderman. He was telling people long before we had a costume or talked about what he would like to be. We got his costume early and he never waivered...He was Spiderman! Our church had a fall festival and we had a great time with all of our friends. I expected a room full of Spidey, but only one other of his friends came as a webmaster also. I think this is the end of our busy week. Enjoy the pictures!

Discovery Kingdom ....again!

We had free passes that expired this week, so we surprised Sawyer and went to "roller coaster city". We had a super time! It was a perfect weather day with small crowds. Zach and I didn't go on any major rides, but it was fun to experience everything with Sawyer. At one point we went over to the go carts to see if Sawyer was tall enough. Anyone that knows Sawyer realizes how big a deal it would be to drive a race car! Unfortunately, he was too short. I was so impressed with his attitude! I myself was very disappointed and couldn't understand why one had to be a certain height to ride the cars. He looked up at me and said, " It's ok, I'll be big next time mom and I can ride it." No whines or cries. How embarrassing when a 3 year old has a better attitude!


Sawyer and Kevin

My Pumkin

"I'm doing it!"

What a fun couple of weeks we have had! We went to a pumpkin patch with Sawyer's preschool and to another patch with our friends. It is a fun fall tradition! Sawyer did so much better this year putting his hand in the goop. Last year he refused and just wanted to paint. He was excited to put the "fire" in it. Unfortunately we carved on a napless day, so we only carved one pumpkin and than off to bed he went. Maybe next year we'll get a little more advanced.
