Today we had our Harvest Festival at church. Wow, did the kids ever have a great time! There were games to play, wonderful food to eat (chili dogs, popcorn, cotton candy. What kid could ask for more?), trains to ride, and an ambulance and firetruck to play in. The weather was perfect, cool and sunny. It was just the perfect day. The boys wanted to wear a costume but the ones they are wearing on Friday are not ready yet, so they each picked one out of the dress up drawer in their playroom. Layne was a football player and John-Isaac wanted to be Robin. Linley was just Linley! As you can see in the picture above she loved to take her shoes and socks off all day! She only made it in the picture with one on! Layne’s favorite was the balloon animals, and John-Isaac’s favorite was the train. I think he rode it at least 20 times!:) Here are a few pics from our day.

When we went for the boys eye exams a couple of weeks ago we found out that Layne was going to have to get glasses also. He is near sighted with an astigmatism. They came in on Tuesday and we picked them up on Wednesday. He couldn’t wait to get to church to show everyone. He likes them and is adjusting to them well. John-Isaac has had his since he was 2 so it is strange to see him without his, but it is taking some getting used to on my part to see Layne with them. I think they make him look more like Brian!
Many of you know that about a month ago we made the decision to move Layne to a private christian school here in town. It has more than proved to be the right choice for him. He is so much happier and is getting the individualized attention he was needing. There are only 18 children in first and second grade two of which are Layne’s two best little friends in the world. This morning they had “Muffins for Mom”. We got to school a little early and enjoyed muffins, milk, and coffee. It was a fun time with Layne.
Yes, it is true! Another month has already passed! And wow was it some month for little miss Linley! She now has 2 teeth, and is starting to try a few table foods like bread and we even let her taste (barely) ice cream tonight. She is on the verge of crawling. She scoots backwards but she is getting the hang of it! Her new thing is not wanting to ride in her car seat. She now bows her back every time I go to buckle her in. She waves all the time now saying “hi” and “bye bye”. She is still just the best baby ever, so happy and full of life! What a blessing my baby girl is to our family!
I am a little behind on blogging! We have been very busy this last week so I am sorry these are a little late in coming! Last weekend we went to visit Grandma and Grandpa in Hector. It was Xander’s (Brian’s sister’s little boy) birthday party and we got to see his brand new little sister Madilyn. She is so tiny (you have to remember that Linley weighed 9lbs 10 oz at birth, I am not used to little babies!) We had a great visit! Layne skated all by himself for the first time and John-Isaac liked being led around by daddy! Here are a few pics from our trip.

I took this video today of Linley saying Mama:)
After two and a half months of Linley saying Dada, hi, bye bye, and last week buh buh, today she finally made my day, week, month, and year when she said MAMA!!!!!!!!! I think it was the sweetest sound I have ever heard in my whole life! I called Brian on the phone at work just so he could hear her (and so I had proof!) Of course, now every time I look at her and tell her to say Mama she just looks at me, laughs and then proceeds to say Dada! At least I know she can say my name now:)
