Bleach and me do not mix. Trying to save two, $4 shirts for the girls, I ruined a $10 shirt (which is actually priceless, since I really only have a couple of nice T-shirts), and a $15 jacket. Whatever…

So, Jackson has been off track since the last week of October. I have been trying to do some fun things with the kids. Unfortunately, three kids, a huge diaper bag, a stroller, a 25 pd baby, sack lunches, sweaters, a cell phone, wallet, directions, and keys is about all I can carry…so, I never had a camera with me.
Here are some of the fun things we have been doing:
1) Pretend City in Irvine—this was by far the coolest children’s museum, ever! They had a little city for kids—including a fully stocked pretend grocery store, a huge stage with lights/sound (Jackson’s favorite), a beach with real sand, and the list goes on…It was great to see friends there too!
2) The jump houses—always a favorite!
3) The park a million times—with friends and just by ourselves—usually with sack lunches in tow.
4) Visit Aunt Melissa and cousin Taylor and cousin Luke in the heart of Los Angeles—with a stop at the LA temple to run around like crazy people on the huge lawn in the freezing cold night.
5) Shopping with Grandma Burnett
6) Visits and a pumpkin patch with Grandma Sage
7) The Library and its fall reading program
8) To top it off—we are heading to Vegas this weekend to visit uncle Buck and aunt Elise.
Does it say something about my personality that…
1) When Ray and I play Lite Brite, I have to remove the peg she put in (while she is not looking, of course) and replace it with the right color?
2) How about the fact that I am still putting pegs in the picture—even when she was done about 20 minutes ago?
3) Or that we are doing all this and we don’t even have batteries to make the picture light up?
4) Or that I have three dirty toilets that need cleaning…and I begin another picture (even though Ray is no where to be found…)
My dad use to ask me sometimes if I needed my head examined…maybe…

We took the kids to two pumpkin patches this year. One with Grandpa and Grandma Sage and Jackson and Reagan’s cousins (technically 2nd cousins) and the other with Grandma Burnett. Here are some pictures of our adventures with the Hardeys and Grandpa and Grandma Sage:
Family pictures with the pumpkins (We could never get all three of them to look at the camera—funny enough, Madie was the best at it!)
Jackson on the huge slide, don’t think he will try that again anytime soon!
The Petting Zoo:
The Pirate Ship (Reagan loved it at first, towards the end, she wasn’t so sure!):
On the Train:
Taking crazy pictures:
The pumpkin patch with Grandma Burnett:
They loved these tractors that they got to drive themselves. Jackson drove right into the haystack or the ride attendant every time!
