What a slacker!

It's official. I'm a slacker! It's almost December and I'm just getting around to posting for October. It was a busy and fun month, so I can't just leave it out. First, I took a rode trip with my good friend Melinda to Rexburg to see Patti speak at Mother's weekend. She did such an awesome job! I'm so glad we were able to go. Thanks to Brian for taking the time off to make that possible. Then the following weekend Patti came with her kids for a visit. We loved having them. Here is Cole and the monkey's running circles on the trampoline. Looks fun, eh?
Then we had the excitement of having Grandma Kay come for a visit. We were lucky to have her on her birthday. We took her to Beaches Restaurant for the celebration on the Columbia River. We weren't going to let her forget about her birthday even though she may have been running away from home to avoid it. Ha Ha!!!

Of course we forgot our camera at home (we never remember it) so we made Grandma put her crown and lei back on when we got home to take a picture. Hope she had a great birthday!

Cole lost his first tooth the day before Halloween. Holy Cow! That hole looks like it's big enough for two teeth. Hopefully that means good spacing and we will be able to bypass the braces stage for him. (One can always hope.) Our baby is growing up yet again.

Cole on his kindergarten field trip to the pumpkin patch. The students had to be able to carry the pumpkin back themselves or they couldn't take it home. He got one that was a bit heavy, but he made it out.
