Tragon is an absolute joy and probably been the best "baby" so far. He sleeps great, eats great, let's me actually put him down, and adores his older brothers. They are much better entertainment than myself and they love to play peek-a-boo and try to tickle him. He's starting to laugh, smiles all the time, and can almost roll over.
Haha, this is what happens when I get distracted doing the dishes or cleaning. I think Damon and Tragon were both sleeping and so I let Logan use a marker to do some preschool activity books (gotta love the dollar store). Anyway, I turn around and he has blue everywhere. Granted it was a Mr. Sketch marker, and really who can resist smelling them.
It was too funny that I just busted up laughing and got the camera. This is Logan's, "what's so funny mom" look. My boys sure keep me on my toes!
So, sadly no more pictures, but here's the rest of the month, this past week we attended a funeral of one of Morgan's cousins who died very unexpectedly and was about Morgan's age. I'm not much of a funeral person, in fact if you ask any of my friends from high school I vowed I would never attend a funeral, even my best friend's. I guess I matured a little bit, but I'm still not a huge fan. This funeral was different. There was just a different feeling there. I'm not saying people were happy, because we are all definitely going to miss him and there was a sadness about it, but there was such a certainty of the gospel plan presented that it was hard not to have a testimony building experience. I think I was able to keep my emotions in check until I gave my aunt a hug and then I was just speechless for fear I would start sobbing. I can't imagine loosing a child so young. My prayers will definitely be with them all for quite some time, but I am grateful for my knowledge to know that families can be together forever and that our Father in Heaven loves us and will be with us always.
This month also marks the passing of our 4-way inspection on our basement. We're definitely making some progress, so we'll have to get some pictures up soon.
I started a playgroup with a neighbor, we trade off every other week for about 1 hour and half one day a week. It's been fun. Logan definitely likes having friends over and he seems to behave pretty well at other houses too.
On the 13th, it was Morgan's 31st birthday, and on the 6th it was 26th birthday. It was pretty low key for both of us. We decided that our fireplace was our real birthday present...and Christmas present...for about the next 5 years. :)
We're part of ward dinner group thing and we're a host family. Towards the beginning of the month we had our first dinner. We had 3 other couples over. It was really fun. A little hectic because that was also Morgan's late day, so he was getting here about the same time as everyone else. They had some games going at the church after everyone's dinners, but my kids had been sick the week before and we were both exhausted and couldn't find a babysitter so we stayed home. We're looking forward to more dinners and being able to get to know more of our neighbors.
We're planning on having a lot of fun over Thanksgiving, so I'll post about that later, so until next time...
