October Fun

The month of October was so busy, but fun. I tried a few new things and projects with Jackson as well last month.
 We painted this pumpkin, what I call a "ghost pumpkin" with Jackson's little hands. You can see it did not turn out perfect, but that's okay. It was fun and Jackson got to try his hand at painting. :)
 I also made chicken pot pie soup with puff pastry croutons. I just cut out shapes and baked the pastry for a few minutes. And voila! You have croutons!
 I took our sweet boy to the doctor a couple of weeks ago for his 18 month check-up. He is healthy and growing for sure. Anytime we go anywhere, Jackson is so happy and friendly to everyone. People love that and can't help but smile when he greets them. :)
 Russell and I went on a date last Friday and we had lots of fun. Pei Wei opened in our area recently, so we were anxious to try it. It was very good. We also went to mini golf and acted like teenagers again. HA! Target was also a priority for our date night. :)
 Jackson "helped" me bake cookies the other day for friends. He was so proud to help me.
 He also had to taste the dough. Yummy! Oh, and the picture is totally not centered. I have a toddler who is always running. What can I say?
 Ta-da! Halloween cookies!
 My nephew, Logan, turned 16 on Thursday. I absolutely positively cannot believe it!!! We love him so much.
 Halloween is just fun for us. Papa Murphy's makes a special "jack-o-lantern pizza" every Halloween, so we had to get one.
It's a must to watch Hocus Pocus every year. Traditions, traditions. :)
So that's a couple of weeks in a nutshell. I will post more about Halloween in a day or two. Jackson looked adorable in his costume! Stay tuned!
Come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come to him with thanksgiving. Let us sing psalms of praise to him. Psalm 95:1-2
