Jacob the Sailor Man, Kate the Bumblebee, Luke the Cow
We had a wonderful time at the Pittman's for Halloween, despite me battling potential pink-eye. The kids seemed to have enjoyed it too, and I'm so impressed Jacob kept his hat on! This year's costume was a tribute to Kris - who served 5yrs in the Navy (he's been everywhere - inside joke).
The Pittman's hosted a pumpkin carving get together last night, and we had a good time. I'm so impressed by Kris' free-hand pumpkin. Jacob enjoyed jumping on the ottoman - his new thing. And now his latest word is dar (aka star).
I FINALLY got Jacob's daycare (or as I refer to school) picture back that was taken in September! And it is just too precious not to share. I love it! Gives me a peak into the future of what an actual school picture might look like some day (tear gush).
Today we went to the Pumpkin Patch with the Pittman'sand had a wonderful time with perfect weather! There were so many things for Jacob to take in, so at times he wasn't sure what was happening. But I know he loved being outdoors regardless.
Today was Kate's 2nd birthday party. The kids had fun at Gymboree. Here are a few pics: Kate in her precious pigtails. The little boy to the left cannot wait for his cupcake any longer! Sweet Nicholas to the right sits patiently for Kate to blow out her candle. Luke is ready to sing Happy Birthday to his big sis.
I get to watch my sweet nephew Luke again today - 2nd time this week! He is such a good baby, and such a delight to be around. He will be 4mos on Sunday - I cannot believe it. I love this cuddly stage and LOVE me some Luke!
I just have to share this sweet story: tonight Jacob and I were leaving Beth's house, and we were turning onto a street and there was a man with a camera and mighty tall tri-pod at the corner, and it appeared he was trying to get a picture of the sunset. And as I was turning, Jacob said "cheeeeeeeeeese". It was so darling, guess he thought he was taking his picture.
Here is a video of him saying just that, enjoy! p.s. he is watching the ceiling fan at the beginning, still gets mesmerized.
