I can't believe that its been so long since I last posted...I kinda forgot my password and since I am using Mike's email I had a hard time resetting it. Anyways...October has been a busy month. Between all the birthdays, work, and getting ready for halloween. The kids are great! Marissa just celebrated her 9th birthday!!!!! The best part of her turning 9 is that she was with us. She has never spent a birthday with us. We had a nice party over at grandma Cindy's. She got a new bike from us and about $100! She loved going to toys r us to spend that money. Christopher is still my little clown. Always doing or saying something to make me laugh. His new thing is writing and drawing. He writes everything and loves to draw. He now can write his whole name and is very proud that he can write it. He says his "2nd name" is very long, but has no complaints about writing his last name. They are working on learning all thier letters at school and he gets homework every week. Its hard for me to believe that my baby is doing homeowrk. He has had a busy month at school with the firetruck visiting and a field trip to the pumpkin patch. He actually went to 2 different pumpkin patches in 3 days! Mom and I decided to take both the kids to the pumpkin patch last sunday and although it was cold the kids had fun. Christopher had a hard time deciding which pumpkin he wanted he had to get the"best one". Then they got to come home and carve it. That was fun. Mike is supposed to carve the other ones that we have since he has the talent to carve them. Christopher has also been on me about decorating the house for halloween. So we will be doing that this weekend. I have some exciting news...My brother and his girlfriend are expecting their daughter on monday! I can not wait to meet my new neice Katherine Danielle. Kim is scheduled to be induced 1st thing monday morning and mom will be in the delivery room as Katherine makes her entry. I will be sure to post a update when she arrives!
