It seems that these weeks are flying by! It was just over a month ago that I updated last and here we are again.
We were thrilled to go on the Jr. High Fall Retreat with Joshua and Abby Kate again this year. As always, we had the best time and enjoyed being together with everyone. We all came home a little tired and it took me a little longer to feel back to normal, but I guess that’s just age catching up with me.
For some reason, I decided to try my hand at painting again. I don’t know why I always think that I can do this, but I do. I took a before picture and will need to get a picture of my finished product later. Needless to say, I should just stay away from the paints.
We enjoyed dinner and a ghost tour with our life group one Friday night. We had the best time together and I loved hearing more stories of our downtown area.
We had the coldest Autumn Fest a few Sundays ago! Jason and I enjoyed handing out candy at our Trunk or Treat and the kids loved helping too.
For Halloween this year, we had our friends over and we feasted on chili (with noodles)! Jackson had decided early on not to go trick or treating this year. As the sun was going down, he quickly changed his mind. I took him around the neighborhood and he had so much fun! I’m glad that he did this for another year! Joshua and Abby Kate had fun handing out the candy at the house while we all watched the World Series.
Last week, we all celebrated Jason’s birthday! We went out for dinner at Connor’s and then to see the new Thor movie at our favorite theater! We had fun making the most of Jason’s birthday and spending time together as a family.
This past Wednesday, Jackson and I headed to Montgomery for his field trip. We had an early morning (up at 4 AM), but really enjoyed our time together. We visited the Capitol building, the Alabama State House, and the Rosa Parks Library and Museum before returning home later that night.
This Friday, we went camping with some friends. We had the best time, but it was so cold! I’ve been catching up on all of our laundry and some sleep that I missed out on this week.
