Kitchen Kitchen

Autumn gets in these "pretend pretend" moods where she plays for hours cooking up a storm. You'll often hear her say things like "I'm making soup, don't eat your cupcake until your done with your soup"
 And she'll often make you an awesome toasted sandwich
 And hot cups of tea...with sugar that must be heated up "just so"
 We love our little chef in the making

So after chasing after my walking 1 year old I haven't blogged in a's a month in a flash!

Since all the grandparents came to visit Jude for his 1st birthday we pulled out the mattress and the kids had "Archer Olympics" every day where they would do somersaults and rolls and jumps for hours (it rains in October, so yay for inside activities!)
 Lots of giggles and hugs
 And fun rolls and loves
 My parents came and we went to see some African animals and stayed in a tree house!
 The game drives were Jude didn't hold up but Jude and Autumn loved seeing all the animals
 We saw a heard of like 50 elephant
 And stayed in a fun treehouse where all the cottages were up on stilts with Grandma and Grandpa
 Grandma and Grandpa came and visited for 3 weeks from America, we had lots of fun with them
 BOTH grandparents came for Jude's special
 Noah went to his firs karate competition and won a bronze medal..he was so excited.
 Jude is walking everywhere and doesn't crawl at all anymore, he climbs everything and keeps me on my toes. I found my cellphone outside my bedroom window and my favorite shoes in the trash. We love our little mischeif guy
 Autumn loves loves dress up and wants to wear a dress up dress everyday...and sometimes wears them to ballet practice. She skipped for the first time a few weeks ago after months of hopping, so ballet has really improved her coordination we love our little ballerina!
 The local shops were having a halloween trick or treat so we got all dressed up, two Spidermans and a Tangled

 When we got there it was freezing cold and raining...and my kids were we went to a special chocolate restaurant and had hot chocolate and cake instead
 Special hot chocolate mmm

 Jude dressed as a pumpkin for Halloween..all 3 of my kids wore this for their first Halloween
 And we carved pumpkins the kids really love this every year
 Autumn wanted to carve a butterfly
 And we got to go trick or treating with a friend...they got tons of candy

 And Noah lost his first tooth at 5! He's lost his second tooth too now and got special money from the tooth mouse (cause the tooth fairy is too girly!
And that was our October :)
