Halloween 2015

This year I decided I wanted to make Jonas's costume, so I did. Im glad I started early since it took me about a month to finish it. I finished it a few weeks before Halloween so I took on more unnecessary work and made a hat for myself using the hood part of Jonas's costume, so we matched and it was cute :) Jordan isn't much into Halloween so I didn't really force him to do much of anything, he wore his plaid and said he was a lumberjack. Good enough for me, some day he may want to do a costume... :D We went to the stake dinner/ trunk or treat/ halloween carnival. Not only was there not NEARLY enough food for everyone who attended, but they served only soup and rolls. I think whoever planned this event doesn't have children because toddlers and soup dont really mix. Jonas did have a few bites before he decided he'd rather scamper about the church. We only played two carnival games, one of which I made and planned with the help of another person in my ward. The highlight of the night was the trunk or treat Jonas liked grabbing candy out of people's buckets, and I think he secretly likes being admired and being told he is cute, which he got a lot of since he was the only fox child there. Sadly I didn't really get any pics of the party except for one, but I did get some before we left and also a bonus pic of my baby belly at 17 weeks... I was approximately this big at over 20 weeks last time.... my body is quite good at remembering what its like to be pregnant :D

Phone Pictures and Videos

It's been far too long since the last blog post, so this is what you people get as an update from us, just pictures and some good videos of Jonas. Enjoy.

This is how Jonas sleeps, with a blanket or some other such object near or usually completely covering his face.

Reading with Aunt Jamie at a visit to Kelsey's house a few months ago.

Behold the Jonas Nest!

Swimming in St. Anthony

Yay mud!

Rocks are more fun that water

Luckily I didn't get leeches like daddy

Rocks are my favorite

These ones are so smooth! Mama was glad that they were too big for me to swallow
