I planned a trip to go out and see my BFF (best friend forever), Rebekah. Having a 9 month old baby made this plan a little scary for me....should I take him?-- should I leave him home?-- Jim convinced me that I would have SO much more fun, and be able to relax if I just left him home for a few days. He got him to take a bottle again, after he boycotted the bottle about 2 months ago--Jim got him eating baby food and taking formula...all in the effort to convince me to let him stay so I could have an actual "relaxing" break with my best friend. As I lay sleeping the night before I was to leave, I nearly got out of bed and packed a suitcase for Kyle. I didn't though. Upon arriving in California (without Kyle) I decided...well, I'm going to be here for 5 days--without Kyle--and I can either enjoy myself and relax, or I can be miserable and worry the whole time about my family back in Colorado. While I thought of them a lot, I decided to relax and enjoy my time. It was a good decision. I had a blast....seriously had so much fun. It was so nice to be with my best friend and her family. We have kids all about 3 months of each other and it was nice to see them at this point in their life--and it was great to see that all the craziness of being a mother and all that that entails--well--she's going through it too.

Jim took this video of the kids dancing. One of our funnest family "traditions" is turning on the music and just rockin' out. My kids, I proudly say, have really good rhythm and can really boogie. Enjoy the fun!

While I' m by no means as eloquent as Kathryn on NY, I appreciate her "tagging" me as I can think about my interesting habits or facts about myself...while normally, I don't analyze myself too much. For heaven's sake--I'm too busy analyzing others! hee hee.

Time has flown...and we're having fun. Kyle is 9 months now and it has really gone by quickly...although it doesn't always feel so quick, especially in the middle of the night...feeding him 3 or 4 times...but still...he's our cuddle bug and brightens up our days with his smile and love. We really are glad to have him in our family...he really completes us.

I love this time of year...we get to pick out our pumpkins! The kids were so excited to go and get the pumpkins. It's Kyle's 1st Halloween this year...hard to believe. He thought it was all very interesting, but he wasn't going to smile no matter how much we tried to get him to. The other kids had a great time though. They had a corn maze and a haunted alley. They each choose a pumpkin for themselves, and helped choose a couple of family pumpkins. Pumpkins are amazing to me--just beautiful colors and shapes and so festive! My cuties had fun.
