Jackson's baby shower

Early November My mom, Sister and best friend threw me the most beautiful fall baby shower. We all enjoyed a very delicious brunch, & good company. I was blessed with so many wonderful gifts for baby Jackson's arrival. The day was perfect and got me even more excited for him to get here. Unfortunately we were all having to much fun to take pictures but my sister did get some details that I wanted to share.

I am so thankful for everyone who was able to make it to my shower to celebrate the arrival of Jackson. Having another baby was not something I was quit ready for but now I can't wait to meet him and kiss his sweet face. Having a boy is such a joy to me, I can't wait to see how different they are and how much they are alike. He is going to be here before we know it!!!!

Freddie on the Shelf….

That is what Makayla calls her "Elf on the Shelf"

Freddie is a scout elf that arrives when we come home from Thanksgiving vacation and watches Makayla throughout the month of December and reports back to Santa nightly to give him a report of her behavior. He always lands in a different spot in the house each morning. Watching her find him is always so much fun in the morning. He sometimes brings notes, and gift, and this year he even brought of a Breakfast from Santa. He has also found himself in some trouble this year, he got into the Candy dish and enjoyed some of Mommies Chocolates!!! I love having kids and being able to bring joy to there faces.

A day at the Farm

Today we got to enjoy a beautiful fall day on a farm. Makayla's friend Alex had his 4th birthday at Noah's Ark Farm. We got to enjoy goats, sheep, pigs, donkeys, turtles, bunnies, swans, chickens, and even a pony ride. It was a beautiful day and even better company. Makayla loved it and was very into all the animals, she is usually a little timid. 

 The sheep
 careful at first
 Then she got more comfortable
 look at all those sheep and goats

 Brushing the animals
 She was the first one in line for the pig! She wants a pig of her own so badly 
 Waiting for the Chicken
 Holding the white Chicken
 She did so good
 with Ben and the geese 

Her favorite part….the pony ride!
It was a perfect party and all the kids really enjoyed themselves!
