I hope you have all been doing well. I can honestly say that I never knew what busy was before having a 3rd child…and I used to work 3 jobs…SHEW! Trying to catch up and get some pictures posted…so here goes…
On 10/20, we headed over to Buffalo Mountain to have a fun night with the children’s ministry from church. This was Cole’s favorite part…and he STILL hasn’t stopped talking about (or thanking God for) Mr. Jason, who drove the tractor.
…and pulled the hay wagon…
And Mr. Alex was kind enough to take Connor for his first canoe ride, since Mommy had her hands QUITE full chasing Cole and caring for baby Caroline. (Daddy was at a church meeting).

On 11/1, the boys traded some of their candy (we had like 4 HUGE bins of it) for toys! Yay Switch Witch – thanks to my friend Adriel for the idea!
Connor started playing basketball at the Y on 11/2! Here he is with his friend, McKinley…

Connor is getting better and better with his drawing! This is Spiderman!
My sick baby, on 11/17 – Jason and my 6th Anniversary!!!
Cole came out with this Darth Vader helmet on and said, “I am your fader, Mom…”
Cole: “Mom, I drawed a picture.”
Me: “Wow! What is it, Cole?”
Cole: “Monsters, Inc. (exasperated sign)…Come on, Mom!”
Me: “What was I thinking?!”
Evening nap with Georgie!
Will do my best to keep updating as regularly as I can. Wish life would slow down for 2 seconds so I can catch my breath Caroline is 11 weeks old tomorrow and the easiest baby EVER. Cole has hit the Terrible 2’s in a HARD way. Jason, Connor, and I are having to collectively take deep breaths to deal with him. And Connor is doing great in school. He is so smart and so considerate and he SURE DOES love his brother and sister. God is GOOD! ALL THE TIME! Have a great month!
