The first video is of Jax! We got to keep him for a little bit this afternoon. Yes, he's a very big baby! He'll be 5 months Nov 6 and he weighs 17 pounds 11 ozs!
The 2nd video is of Ady signing "You've got a Friend In Me"
The 3rd video, Ady was making Jax laugh and I tried to catch her but of course she stopped!!
Then Ryan came out and wanted to get in on all the action!
They had to color it all in!
And here is what Reese was doing while everyone else was coloring with chalk! I'm telling you this boy cracks me up!
Then it was time to carve pumpkins after our Cowboys suffered yet another loss. I think this was just what everyone needed to get out some frustration! Especially Cody!
Let the carving begin!
This is a tradition that we have done since we were little little. I love that we are now doing it with our kids. You can never be to old to carve a pumpkin and you are creating great memories!
Yes, I get this look alot! HA HA! She was a little ticked!
She did NOT want to just sit! She wanted to go run around!
This is what Reese looked like after they got off the hay bales!
Hay bale pics!

Saturday morning Mike and Ryan got up and headed out to the golf course to get some holes in before a tournament they had that afternoon. Jessi and I got up and got the kids ready to head uptown to the parade. The parade is also another homecoming tradition. Each jr. high and high school class makes a float and then anyone else who wants to be in it can. It was a beautiful morning to be out!
Grant County Sheriff Roland Hula and Medford's Police Chief Roger leading the parade.
The Pride of Medford! The band just isn't the same as when I was in school but I still do appreciate it. There's nothing like going to a football game and hearing the band. It's a pretty awesome thing to grow up with and I can't wait for Adylyn to experience it either! I just love small town pride!!
Tanner is leading the band. Ady was pretty excited to see him!
Homecoming King and Queen!
Going after some candy!
Reese and Ady enjoying some of their candy!
After the parade Jessi, the kids, and I headed to Enid. I had to find me at least 1 pair of maternity jeans. We had a good day of shopping. I love spending the day with my sister!!
Sunday we got up and went to Sunday school and church. It was a rainy afternoon and then it got stormy! It was so awesome to have the windows open and hear it thunder and listen to the rain. Jessi and Ryan helped Mike shampoo the carpets right after lunch. They are so good at helping out whenever we ask them. We hurried up before the Dallas game started. I'm not sure why we hurried because I would have rather not watched it! Our Cowboys aren't doing so well. Oh well, I'm not a fair weather fan and will stick behind them until they get all their problems worked out. Bubba came over to watch the game with us and it got pretty loud in here at times!! Around halftime Ady and Reese finally went down for a nap. Reese has been wanting to sleep with one of Ady's babies when he's here. He's so sweet. He wouldn't fall asleep while Jessi was rocking him until he got a baby. Here he is taking a nap with Susie, I believe!
It was another great weekend spent with amazing family. I was reminded once again by something that happened to never take anybody for granted. Our family has been taught this but it's so easy to slide back into your old ways. Material possessions don't mean anything when you don't have the ones you love there to share them with. No money in the world could ever compare to my great family and friends. I am in awe everyday at how blessed we continue to be.
Speaking of good friends. Today is one of my very best friends, Heather, birthday. She is an amazing friend, mother, wife, sister, and daughter. I am so blessed to have her in my life. She has always been there for me and I know I can count on her anytime. When Cody's accident happened she was always right there for me to talk to and sent me scriptures at just the right times. She is such a godly woman and will teach her daughter to be the same. I love you Heather and hope you have a great day! Ady says "Happy Birthday Heaver"!!!
