Miles and the kids got right to work at building a "frosty the snowman"
Jovi of course was in one of her favorite places the moby.... all covered up
I took the kids out the next day before the rain came and melted all our snow and frosty
Azure's little suit is size 12 months, it was a little small but worked. She is still tiny, but eats a TON. Azure still wears 6-9 shirts to 18 months and her pants are 12 and 18 months.Kenya worked on making snowballs
Azure was stomping, kicking and putting her feet in the water. I had just taken off her mittens because they were soaked (right before I did the video) when we went inside her socks were soaked too.

The kids and I were looking
at some of our old videos and we came across this one.
Just a little reminder....
Miles was in Washington/Oregon for work
and also looking at houses to buy.
Kenya and I went to visit Adam and Ashley
until Miles got home. I was 38 weeks
pregnant, my doctor told me I could leave town
but I went into labor that night.
Ashley brought Kenya to the hospital and he wasn't interested in Azure at ALL.

- 1st is going once Miles gets home, 6pm is about the earliest. With it being winter it gets dark early so I have to run alone at night which isn't very safe. Our neighborhood is right next to the freeway with mostly dark streets.
- 2nd is taking one or 2 of the kids with me and Miles can watch the other so I am not alone. I have put Jovi in her car seat and set it in the jogger seat so she is covered good and Azure is in the other seat. Sometimes Azure and Kenya go and Jovi stays home.
- 3rd I laid Jovi in the jogger with a few quilts to stay warm and Azure sat on Kenya's lap. They both liked it, I know it doesn't look very comfortable. I thought this would be the only way I could take all 3 at once.
I planned to go running when Miles got home today, on Fridays he normally gets done early but I knew it would still be dark. I decided to have Kenya wear the baby bjorn pack and put Jovi inside of it. That way Azure and Kenya would have their own seats. I came up with this idea after I talked to my grandma, she asked why I didn't have Kenya hold Jovi while I ran. I knew just letting him hold her wouldn't work, his arms get tired when he holds her at home in a chair. When I told Kenya I wanted to put the bjorn on him and have him hold Jovi while we went running he was pretty excited.

Miles and I both don't like dressing up for Halloween but we did it for the party, we got this idea from Oliver. I was almost 37 weeks pregnant, I am a referee holding the ball (my belly).
- Don was surprised to find out the "ball" was really my belly. we thought it was funny when he poked my tummy and said "is that your belly, wow it's hard" The moms around him explained of course it is. There is a baby is in there, with bones. Miles is a basket ball player. Kenya remembered being a spider from last year and didn't want to be anything else. I didn't find a costume I liked for Azure so I let her be a lady bug again this year.
Ryan and June's family (they dressed up as black people)
June put a blanket in her pants to make her bum look big

We got some big pumpkins too.
We went to a SUPER fun pumpkin patch early in October as a family.
To wash the pumpkins they have a hand pump that uses the same water over and over from a tank.
The farm has tractors that take people up to the pumpkin patch and back down. This was Kenya's favorite part.
Dried up corn taken from corn husks, the kids could of stayed in here all day
Kenya kept looking for "the biggest pumpkin in the whole world"
Pumpkin launching is another activity we did at the farm. Kenya really liked doing it with Miles last year but wouldn't even consider it this year, so Azure took over.
