Pumpkin Painting

Our weekend started a bit early since Jonathan got out of school at 1:20 due to parent-teacher conferences. The weather was beautiful that morning so after I dropped Jonathan off at school I took Jordan and Jasmine to the park. We haven’t been to the park in several weeks because they were making improvements and it was closed temporarily. The park turned out so gorgeous and the kiddos enjoyed themselves.

Saturday the boys painted pumpkins. They did a great job! Jordan couldn’t decide between adding googly eyes or stickers. The stickers ended up making the cut! We plan on carving pumpkins as it gets a bit closer to Halloween night, but painting them is always a favorite of mine or even adding black ribbon to them. It’s a fun and festive activity for all ages.


While the boys were busy at work Jasmine was enjoying her bites or yum yums as she calls them. She had her 15 month check-up earlier in the week and she is 98th percentile in height and 25th in weight. She is long and “slender” per her pediatrician. We have officially stopped breastfeeding which I have mixed feelings about and have had a hard time adjusting, but it was necessary. I’m so thankful and completely shocked that I was able to breastfeed her for 15 months. I will treasure that time forever! She is growing up way too quickly. Her personality is showing more and more each day and she is very strongwilled, determined, and loving.


We hit the park again on the weekend since Jonathan kept hearing all the hype from Jordan. He had to see the new and improved park for himself. The park was very busy because they had soccer games on the grass fields above the park, but the afternoon was perfect.


We have a shortened school week and early release for Jonathan each day, dentist appointments, and continuing to get our Haunted House complete. Only 9 more days to Halloween!!!

I hope you had a great weekend.
