Fall 2010

Fall has been a whirlwind this year. I have been putting off blogging because I feel like there is so much to write. So...I decided just to get some pictures up here, write a mini update and call it good for now. The pictures aren't all in order, but they are up so I'm happy.

Brighton is doing great. She loves pre-school and is a very helpful big sis. She is such a funny kid. The other day I walked in on her with her dress pulled up and her doll's faced smashed against her stomach.
Me: What are you doing?
Bri: Just feeding Jenny; she likes belly button milk more than chest milk.

Love it.

Jackson is so fun right now. He has started smiling lots and making happy baby noises and I just want to eat him up.

We had a month's worth of visitors when Jackson was parents,Don's parents, Steph, Quincy, Debbie, & their kiddos. It was crazy and fun.

Here are some pics from the past couple of months...

First day of pre-school

Bri & Ellie at the Library

Jackson joins the family!

Bri & her favorite dress-up pal, Sophie

Helping Grandma

Steph! It was so good to see her. We spend about an hour or two together a year, which is so not enough, and it was great to do some catching up in person instead of just on the phone!

My mom stayed for two weeks and is the most helpful person on the planet. I wasn't sure I'd survive when she left. The good news is, I did, but I still miss her! Come back!

Nina & Papa hanging with Jackson. It was great seeing them!

Hiking up the gorge with Q, Deb, Kodiak, Coop, & Maeve. We loved having these guys visit & think they should move to Oregon. xoxo

Bri was delighted to find out we had a Wii. She couldn't believe we'd been keeping it from her.

Pumpkin Patch with the cousins!

Getting ready for some trick-or-treating fun!

I just want to eat that Jackson up. He's adorable! Mom's are the best. What would we do without them once that 2nd baby arrives!!!? Or anytime for that matter!? Looks like your doing great and have adjusted perfectly to mom of 2!
