Apple Orchard Fun

We had a great time with the family at the apple orchard in Stillwater! Nice day, yummy apples, and lots for Jack to do there!

Two Peas in a Pod....

Well, not exactly, but they still have fun together! You can see they are both holding potential weapons for if and when necessary!

Different Happenings

We had a good weekend at church. On Saturday we had a youth activity where we made our own pizzas (YUM!) and played some Family Feud. Then, on Sunday, we had a surprise for our pastor. We had taken an offering to honor his 11 years at the church and to celebrate he and his wife's 35th wedding anniversary. It was a lot of fun and a big surprise for them. We also had a cake reception for them after the evening service. Here is a picture of Pastor Cary Flinck and his wife Nancy.

We are also busy with AWANA at our church this year. Matt is the commander this year and we had a great opening night this last Wednesday. We had a lot of kids, some of them first-timers, show up for the ice cream party. We are praying that they will continue to come throughout the year and bring a lot of their friends.

Jack has been getting bigger every day. He loves to learn new words and make us laugh. Here is a video of Jack being a bad Baptist by dancing with Elmo.

I thought I would also share a funny story of Jack eating a snack the other day. He was eating his peaches and loving them. He started to get a little hyper and thought he would be funny by slapping his hand to his face. He forgot that he still had a peach in his hand and the following photos show the result.

Of course, I could have cleaned him up right away, but I knew my first priority was to run and grab the camera!

Happy First Day of October!!!

Sadly, the Twins didn't make it to the playoffs; but there we were cheering them on! Oh well. Still had some good snacks!
So we're keeping pretty busy with church - Awana starts tonight! And we have a special Sunday planned for this coming week, so we are busy getting that all together. And it's been nice to spend time with family lately. Otherwise, I'm babysitting and keeping busy with other projects. It's nice to have a day like today where I had not one thing planned...on purpose! The rest of the week will be busy, so I'm just enjoying today!
Jack is making us laugh more and more saying all kinds of things. He stands on top of his little potty while I'm getting ready in the bathroom and sings out of one of his books. I can make out the word "Jesus" every now and then, so it's good to know it's a Christian song - HA. Well, have a good week, and hope everyone is doing well. As my family always races to say first, "Happy First Day of October!" I know. I don't really have an explanation. It's just a weird family thing that I just let you all in on. But we hope you have a happy day anyway.
