Fall is here again!

Our little family has been having some BIG TIME FUN! We love fall and we love all the outdoor time it brings! We have had a chilly last couple of weeks, but that has not stopped us from having fun! :)

Calvin is such a big boy now, so much has changed in the last couple of months. He is talking more and more putting together 2 and 3 words at a time. It is fun being able to actually understand him, well most of the time. And to see his face light up everytime he knows you recognize the words coming from his mouth, finally! :)

Calvin loves riding any toy with wheels...he is a mover and his fafvorite toys are all his balls. Tennis balls are his current favorite. The best $1.50 I have ever spent was on a tube of 3 tennis balls. :) He dumps them out and puts them, and this can go on and on.

Cal also has started "tooting" on the big toliet. Cal calls his poop, toot. :) he only "toots" on the toliet and not on a potty chair, the BIG potty. We taught him to to wiggle and grunt and he has it down to perfection. We would show the video we have but it is not G rated. ;) I know you are all sad about that. Ha.

We enjoyed going to the Mahoney State Park indoor playground for cousin Cadynce's 5th birthday party! It was so fun, even the adults had fun. If you have not been I highly recommend it for family getherings becasue the adults get to play in it too! That is where the photo of us is taken in the ball pit, Cal LOVED the balls. Happy Birthday Cadynce! We get to celebrate cousin Paige's 2nd birthday next week too...we love birthday parties!!!

Hmmm, what else...I am still enjoying my little daycare and keeping busy with other things on the side like Jazzercise, getting the house ready to put on the market and doing a little photography on the side for sme friends and family. I have been having a lot of fun meeting new kids and their families too. Take a look at my photography blog if you have not already,

Daddy's sports injury has healed great. Aaron continues to go to physical thereapy twice a week and they tell him he will be able to start back up with some basic exercising really soon, maybe as early as December. I know he is very excited to hear that...and hopefully be able to play some winter basketball again. We'll see. For now he is working hard at his job and watching lots of football on tv. :) He recently helped organize a fundraiser for the Nebraska Film Association and Alexander Payne was the special guest. Payne directed and wrote Sideways, About Scmidt and Election. Aaron thought that it was pretty neat to meet Payne!
We hope that everyone has been having a great fall so far. Take care and Happy Halloween!
