The inn keeper in action telling Joseph and Mary that there is no room in the inn but they can sleep in the stable.
And now for your listening pleasure, "Jingle Bells". The parents were supposed to join in on the chorus so that is why it gets a bit louder.

Jake has been having a lot of dreams that he remembers and tells us about. A couple nights ago it was about a red, black, and white super hero costume. Last night he woke up around 11:30 and came to tell me that he had a dream that Bryan was," trying to cut an old dirty piece off the stove and cut his finger off." Our stove is pretty new so I would love to climb inside his mind and see what he envisions. Then when we were trying to get him back to sleep he came back into our room because he was scared. This time he said he looked out his bedroom door and saw our Christmas tree and thought it was Darth Vader holding a gun. What an imagination.

Here they are in action Merrick was the only one who would pose for me once we got outside, but I did capture Jake dumping a hand full of snow on his sister's head. I did not just let it happen, I didn't realize that is what he was up to. Here is Jake's first snowman of the season. Good cold fun.
Now the snow is all melted off but I am sure we will have many more opportunities to freeze our buns off this winter!
Gotta love an action photo!

A couple weeks ago we had a friend of ours from church take family pictures for us. Her name is Danielle and this is something that she does on the side in addition to working full time as an RN, being a mom and a wife. She did such a great job. We have so many fun ones to choose from. Thanks again Danielle! We hope you enjoy and if there are any requests let us know. We could hook you up:)

Jake: Mom, Mom wake up.
Me: What is it bud?
Jake: My belly hurts.
Me: Do you want to climb up into bed with me?
Climb, climb. Settle, Settle.
Me: Yeah bud?
Jake: I guess I'm just really excited about Halloween. We are going to go trick-or-treating with Brynn. I'm going to paint my face. I have my basket all ready. Becky brought me a sucker that is in my bucket right now. Kate wants to be a fairy and a giraffe. Dad has to dress up for work. Carla is going to be a witch...
It may be a really long, yet exciting, day

He is one cute Incredible Hulk.
For FHE we went to the pumpkin walk. Looking at all the pumpkins and scenes is OK, but the best part is once you are through the whole thing you get treats and get to take pictures with the cut outs. In most of the pictures of Jake his face is dirty with chocolate from his cookie, we didn't leave the house that way don't worry:). Going to the pumpkin walk is just one of those things that seems to make fall officially here.

Today after we got back from our walk to the library, the kids decided to have a little fun playing in the leaves. Lacey was a great sport and kept raking them up for them to throw and jump in. I now have crazy crunched leaves all over my house, but the kids sure had a great time.

Last weekend they had the "Boo at the Zoo" at our local Willow Park Zoo. They had fun stuff for the kids to do beside just seeing the animals. They had crafts, games, face(or hand in my kids case) painting, treats, a bounce castle and a scavenger hunt. Our good friends the Lakes were in town and they even got to come with us. Other than the fact that I was a bad mom and did not even think to put the kids in their costumes, they had a fun time.
One of the things we did get pictures of from our visit was our trip down to Thanksgiving Point to the dinosaur museum. Tyler and Janna met us there as well. We made our way through the museum, had some lunch and even got to see the IMAX dinosaur movie. Well most of us saw the movie. Kate got scared about 3 seconds in so she and I spent that time wandering the gift shop and she fell asleep on my shoulder. Jake has always been a lover of all things dinosaur but this trip has multiplied that for him. At the end of the museum there is a pit where the kids can actually dig for dinosaurs and if I could get one for Jake we might never have to take care of him again.
