Friday the 13th and Turning 60!

We had another awesome cake weekend with Friday the 13th and John's mom turning 60!
For Friday the 13th, we made a grave site with a headstone (dedicated to Michael Jackson) with our buds Jenny and Derek Williams. And to top off the night we spooked ourselves out by watching some freaky episodes of Lost (the boys don't seem to think it's scary, but Jenny and I disagree).




Then on Saturday morning, Vanessa and I challenged ourselves by attempting to make a cake that looked like a book since John's mom loves to read. We wrote out a quote from The Blue Sword, one of her favorite books. I think it turned out alright, but the best part was the fun we had...and trying not to cuss when we messed up on the writing...

The Little Man Becomes a Real Man

Jack learns so much everyday, it's crazy how fast he's turning into a little man!

He hates it if he isn't sitting up and most of the time he wants to be sitting up supporting himself. He's getting there!

He's learned to blow bubbles with his spit...to put things in his mouth...

He's trying to hold his own bottle which is so dang cute!He likes to watch cartoons, here he's watching "Super WHY", but he holds a special place in his heart for the Simpsons. (Go ahead, call me a bad parent).

It's just all so fast! Before we know it, he'll be shaving his own back hair....

Jack's Idea of Solids**

video

Jack has been learning how to eat from a spoon, it's been so fun to watch him learn! I've been making his baby food with the Magic Bullet. I really enjoy it! Jack has had apples, avocados, and in the video he's eating oatmeal!

happy haunting*



Halloween was very eventful this year! We got to carve pumpkins with Quincy and Jessica, and we also got to have a Feast in a Pumkin with them (which was way good by the way!)

We went to our ward's trunk-or-treat and we also went trick-or-treating with Russ, Vanessa, and the girls, and Shelly as the Wizard of OZ!










thanks for the stash, Jack! :)
