Tonight all of Matt's family got together for Grandma Jordans birthday party. (She is turning 21 of course). The kids were all supposed to come in their Halloween costumes, and when we got there, there was a house full of pumpkins. It was the Pendleton pumpkin patch!!! The picture is of oh so proud Grandma and Grandpa Pendleton, Mark and JoAnn, and great Grandma Jordan, as well as all of the grandbabies. Savanna (mini-van) who is 6 months old is on the left, who I think is the happiest baby ever!! She reminds me of a cute little bobble head, that just makes you happy. Jaxon is next to her, of course my absolute favorite baby in the bunch with his oh so chubby cheeks; however, he isn't the happiest in this picture...so sad. Next is baby Gracie who is almost 4 weeks old..so tiny and cute!! and last but not least is cousin Lincoln, who showed up as a dalmation, but he decided that he hated the costume and tore it off, so he then just became the naked baby and he is a little over one year old! It is so fun to get together with all the cousins and see them all so close in age, yet at completely different stages!! They grow up so fast..too fast! And I just had to add the picture of matt because he is just such a proud pappa and so good at it! My two favorite boys in the world!
So every year, well the last two anyway, some neighbors and friends have gotten together to go down to cornbellys at Thanksgiving point, which has a bunch of games and activities for kids, a haunted corn maze, a not so haunted one, a hayride, and a haunted lizard thing etc. So....last night that is where we were. Jaxon's first experience with gouls and goblins! Actually, we did take him through the haunted lizard and maze and suprizingly he just slept through it all, which was great! It was absolutly freezing!!! but I had Jaxon strapped to the front of me the whole time with made it a whole lot warmer for me. (the wrap is quite the contraption, but I love it). On a different note, I actually ran into one of my good friends from the beginning of freshman year (before matt took all my time) which was fun, but at the same time akward because I had a baby and I hadn't seen him since before his mission....anyway...kinda random, but whatever.....and so the picture with all the guys in the cornfield....ya, they totally got reamed out for being in there and the guy was upset because he thought they were stomping on it and that it would be ruined blah blah blah...However; just for the record none of it was stepped on and it was already flat from previous rompers. Needless to say, we had a fun time and afterwards we all met up and had some homemade carmel apple cider..YUMMY!! I never thought I would say this in my entire life, but October is by far my favorite month! The crisp cool weather, colorful leaves, and the soo fun halloween season!
Well, I'm responsible for making one of these pumpkins and Jamie is responsible for the other. Any guesses? Well if you think that I sewed the pumpkin costume for Jaxon you are right...and by that I mean that Jamie made the costume. I carved the puking pumpkin. I'm having a hard time determining which one is cooler. In other news, Jamie got called to be the second counselor in the young women's program.....and I'm still on the activities committee without her. I'm not sure how I feel about this as I still have to plan the ward Christmas party. I'll probably drag her into it. Jaxon had his 2 month check up this last Monday and is in the 92% for weight and 84% for height. 15 pounds and 24 " long. He is so dang fun. We get him to laugh all the time. He burps louder than I have ever burped in my life and the gas is incredible. It sounds like he should be deflating by how much air comes out of this kid.
Jaxon can finally fit into his Nike outfit that is father is so very proud of! I personally think he looks like some gangster (a very cute one) that is going to bust out some rap song...or that he is going to rob a bank :) Anyway, Matt bought this outfit when we first found out that we were pregnant, so needless to say, he was pretty stoked when he found out that we were going to have a little boy to fill it.
On another note, Jax is doing so good. I only have to get up once a night right now, which I think is pretty good and this week he is up to 13 lbs! He is our little chunker. He has also started smiling on purpose instead of just when he has gas- It is pretty funny. We are definitely loving this whole parent thing.
My name is Jamie & I married the most fabulous man alive! We have 2 rockin' awesome kiddos that I absolutely love and adore & get to hang-out with all day long! .... this is a somewhat, hardly ever updated look at our life so, welcome welcome!
