Seems like a lot has happened in just a month! Annabelle turned one on October first, her golden birthday. We finally installed our wood stove, the weather turned from late summer into fall and then into winter, I moved the kids into a new bedroom, Owen started swimming lessons, Annabelle is officially walking, Halloween, two deer... Busy! Our October in pictures:
The newest and warmest addition to our family.
We are in love. Next time you come for a visit,
you won't have to wear your jacket the whole time!
He was so excited that he kept jumping in the pool before
his teacher was ready for him and then she'd have to scramble to
try and keep him from drowning. "My! He's very eager," she said.
Annabelle's first official walk in the sled. I think she
liked it until she fell out and did a face plant in the snow...
Luke with not one, but two deer shot on a
beautiful, crisp, unexpected day off in the middle of the week.
Thank you God!
It's her party and she'll cry (or try to touch
the candle flame) if she wants to!
And finally, monkey vs. cheetah.
