Ward halloween carnival

Tonight our ward put on a Halloween carnival. It was so much fun! Ayden is definitely getting to the fun stage of being so fun at events like this. Here's proof :

eating a doughnut off a stick
Bean bag toss
Face painting

There was a trunk or treat there too. We went around for a few mins., but it was too dark to get pics. I probably will get some tomorrow when we go around trick or treating. I may be biased, but I think he's the worlds cutest penguin. I'll get better pics of both kids in their halloween costume tomorrow.

Breeann's bios :o)

Today the kids and I went to go see Breeann's bio mom and grandma! It was so much fun. They're both great women. Here's a few of my favorites
We are so lucky and blessed to have these kids, their first families (now our family too!), and open adoptions!! Couldn't ask for much better.

Hee Haw

It is fall and that means there is plenty of time for fun. We decided to take the kids to Hee Haw farms to play and pick pumpkins

We started the day with the big slide

That was fun

Bree is here but she does not move much so she just sat around

Ayden really loves the animals he was very proud of climbing the fence on his own

In case you are wondering that is Ayden kissing a goat

Boy that pig sty looks like your room

There where games to play but the kids favorite was a corn box. Bree is trying to throw corn at her Dad.

Throw that corn in the air like you don't care

And of corse if you see them you got to ride the swings. Bree just laughed and danced with excitement

Lately Ayden is obsessed with truck, tractors and trains

Ayden was in heaven. we went on this ride several times

Pony rides should be fun. Our little girl did not know what to think.

Ayden trying very hard not to be scared while Dad took the picture

Later that night we got to paint our pumpkins

Mom just closed her eyes as the mess ensued

We wish you all a Haunting Halloween.
The penguin is planning on eating the lady bug for a snack :)

Little background here... My granddad has worn suspenders as long as I can remember. You can't think of Granddad and not picture him in suspenders type deal. The two just go together. Anyway~ as many of you know, we have THE hardest time finding pants that fit Ayden. The boy is just skinny skinny!! Skinny 6-9 month pants is what fit on him. He'd still struggle keeping the pants on sometimes though. Well, last night we went to go see my Granddad. He told us he sent my aunt and uncle on a mission to find Ayden some suspenders! lol
Ayden loves them and they worked perfectly for him! Now to pack up the high-water pants and pull out the ones that fit length wise!!!

On our toes

Little Ms. Bree is becoming more and more mobile...
She definitely is keeping us on our toes with how much she likes to move and try to keep up with her brother. It's fun! Definitely makes it hard with her IV and feeding tube. So my ingenious husband made a bowl that can go around with Breeann.
Not the greatest video of it, but hopefully it gives you all a idea of how amazing Jared is!!!

We're trying to teach Breeann how to walk. She's definitely not a risk taker. However, she's doing pretty well I think. I'm hoping, thinking we can have her walking full time around Christmas-ish... assuming she cooperates and stays out of the hospital long enough :oP
