Last weekend across the midwest (and probably further) the weather changed dramatically overnight from sunny and 70s, to cold and 40s. I was completely unprepared and we had to run out Saturday for winter coats.
Also here is the link to his staff page. Less interesting and informative than the podcast (in my humble opinion), but in text form.
We have this recessed niche above the fireplace in our new house and I’m completely dumbfounded as to what to do with it. Chris and I always joke that we could stand in it, and this morning I busted out the measuring tape to confirm our suspicions. I am pleased to announce that at 3.5ft x 6 ft at it’s highest point, we literally could stand in it.
Check out Jayce on the screen behind us here.
Here are a few pictures of Justin and Jayce in the nursery with it’s new fabulous decor!
Since Jayce is a little too young to celebrate Halloween with his own class, we decided to take treats to his dad’s class this year. He got into his little costume and we surprised Chris’ Life of Christ class with chocolate chip cookies towards the end of the lecture.
Justin and I had carved pumpkins the night before so we had those lit up on the front porch during trick or treating. Chris is not into being festive this way, so was relieved that Justin could help me with this and he wouldn’t have to.
That evening we got our cow and treats all ready and spent a bit of time at the house passing out candy, and the rest of the time walking around the neighborhood visiting with several of the neighbors that we are friends with. One of our neighbors that we went to say hi to was this sweet family who are Hindu, a fact that I forgot until just after we had rang the doorbell. (If you don’t know, cows are sacred to Hindus and Jayce was dressed as a cow!) If they were offended they didn’t show it or they forgave us quickly. Chris and I kept saying that next year they would probably dress their kids up as Jesus and come knock on our door. Oh well. 🙂
Today Jayce rolled over several times in a row, so I thought I would catch one on video to send to Chris at work. Of course as soon as I pulled out the camera he stopped cooperating. However, here is a short video of him trying to roll over but not quite pulling it off, and babbling sassily. I have to admit, we think it is so funny when Jayce “talks” like this and ususally egg him on. I figure there are at least a few grandparents who will happily welcome a new video even if there aren’t any amazing tricks happening. In the meantime, we’ll keep working on that rolling over.
Justin and Tasha were in town this weekend to visit and brought an amazing present for Jayce and his nursery. Justin designed and pained these adult and baby animal paintings and they turned out great!
