Autumn Fun

Here are more pictures of what has been happening in our life since I last blogged. Aunt Cathy came to visit and we were very excited to see her!! She spent one evening with us and we had a great time eating a good meal, playing outside on the trampoline, and going for a walk to get a coffee and some ice cream, we really miss her and Jackson is anxiously awaiting the day he can go on an airplane to see Aunt Cathy :)

I went to the spa last week for an appointment that lasted 2 3/4 hours - it was FANTASTIC - I think I should go every month - it was a well deserved break. LOVED IT !

We spent one weekend at our friends Jonathan and Karen's cottage and that was GREAT, it was sooo peaceful and relaxing to be in the outdoors in the beautiful autumn weather! The kids had fun exploring and going for walks outdoors and we had a great time watching movies and eating delicious food.

I also took care of my niece and nephew for one week while my sister was at a conference in Reno, so it was John and Nola + 5 ... we had a great time and it was a busy household but we had tons of fun, it was a bit quieter when they left and I was sad to see them go.

We are getting ready for Thanksgiving and then Halloween, Jackson gets sooo excited for Halloween, I can't wait for you all to see their Halloween costumes. Until then enjoy the pics and I will blog again soon.



Check out my digger sweater :) I love it - Mom thinks I'm so handsome !!!



Here are pics from Hudson and Oliver's room. I painted the letters and I think they look very nice on the wall.



Oliver's wall :)



My 3 musketeer's - they just love all hanging out together.



Here is Aunt Cathy with Jackson and Hudson, all 3 are suppose to be focused on reading the story but they all seem distracted.



Aunt Cathy and Hudson!!!! What great smiles.



Jackson, my niece Lauren, and my nephew Riker - they all look a bit worn out, they always woke up EARLY and played hard, then crashed in the afternoon.



Here we are at the cottage Hudson, Oliver, Jessie, Jackson, and Josiah - all great buds and Jessie will be well looked after with all these boys :)





John and Jackson enjoying the scenery.





Jackson loves fall just as much as I do, the colours and leaves were BEAUTIFUL!!!





More autumn fun!





Hudson and Oliver also enjoying the outdoors, I just love their hats I bought!!





I like this pic, Jackson is just too cute in this picture and Hudson and Oliver were happy to be out of their stroller :)




Oliver and Dad !




Hudson - he ate a handful of leaves after this picture, he wasn't too enthused by their taste.





Oliver just being his curious self.





Me and my boys :)





Another pic of our family!!!





Jackson in a wagon full of leaves.




They didn't stay in there for long.





Just enjoying a beautiful fall day!!




Me and my boys!! Queen of the house!!!

I love the last picture :D How do you remember to get family pics in with all the busyness? We took some on the weekend, and none turned out good enough for a Christmas card, so we'll have to try again...

I haven't made those, but they sound great! I'll have to pick me up some more beet leaves soon.
