In August, we had a wonderful visit to Tennessee to see Brandon's dad, and spend time with all of his 7 siblings and their families! It was (as always) such a blast!
Jaxson and Grandpa TerryThen, my bestest friend Amie came home from her mission in Florida!Of course we took Jaxson to the fair to ride the rides. He would literally cry at the end of every ride because he had to get off. (By the way, I chopped my hair off).
October became very busy for our family with all of the school and work we were doing. I fully took over my class (student teaching) and was in charge of everything. Then, at the end of the month I had to help out with the Primary presentation at church, and of course we had Halloween!
Jax was the cutest little cow!Jax wasn't too sure about trick-or-treating at first, but once we met up with cousins and friends, he was SO excited. He would say "Trick-or-treat" then when I would tell him to say thank-you he'd say "you're welcome". Is trick-or-treating for the children (or the parents who eat all of their candy, or is that just me)?
We had such a great Thanksgiving weekend. We had lots of family come to visit and had a blast spending time with them. My mom's sister, Barb and most of her kids came (with their kids) and my grandparents came as well. However, it wasn't very much fun when about 4 people came down with the flu, including Jaxson who was throwing up compulsively for a whole day (probably the saddest thing I've ever seen). Lastly, it was also mine and Brandon's 4th Anniversary on Thanksgiving day! Needless to say we haven't really celebrated yet. (4 years! Can you believe it?) Oh and I can't forget to mention how crazy Brittney (my cousin's wife) and I were to go out shopping at 5am on black Friday (mainly so she could get a glorious camera (yes we waited for 2 hours in line at Best Buy! You're welcome Brit! But, it really was OK because she took some beautiful pictures for us the next day:-)Take a look...
I also would like to share some more beautiful family pictures we had taken earlier this month by my cousin Elaina. She has started a business called Graceful Photography and takes great pictures! Thanks to both of my cousins for the wonderful pictures!
