October in a Nutshell

How are these months just flying by?? It's crazy! So once again, a month as slipped past me so that means a months worth of iPhone photos!! 

Let's start where we left off. Our flight home from Puerto Rico. When we arrived (very late) to Tucson we had a furry, four-legged visitor waiting for us! Rocco the Rabbit from preschool came to stay with us for a little over a week. Courtney was headed to Hawaii and we volunteered to take on bunny duty. Having Rocco waiting at home for us really made having to come home easier. Jaxon was very sad to leave PR and his great-grandparents & aunt that knowing something special would await him was a nice way to ease the sadness. 
Rocco is a great house guest. We really love having him around. 

Reese especially loved Rocco.
She calls him, "Ta na" Who knows. 
Every morning the first thing Reese would say was, "Ta na!" and she would run to the living room to check on Rocco. It was adorable, although, Brian was feeling a little sad since usually she saves this excitement for him. 

Building for Rocco

Reese is very much a girly girl. She loves all things girl... jewelry, sunglasses, purses, lipgloss, dresses and SHOES! 
She is quite the walker in high heels. She makes me proud. 

These are easily 3 1/2 inch wedges and she has no problem
cruising the house in them!
A little park time was a must. I really wish I took the time to take them to the park more often. They had so much fun. 

October is Brian's birthday month. He and I were able to go on a birthday date to Zinburger.
Delish. I love their watermelon mojito and truffle fries. 

We celebrated at home with a home cooked meal and from scratch giant cookie. Seriously, the easiest thing ever! I think I will always make chocolate cookies this way! 

Jaxon started soccer in October. His first game was rough, but he has improved drastically in the past few weeks! He scores at least one goal each game. 

Reese LOVES to cheer Jaxon on! 

We visited the pumpkin patch. We had so much fun! We timed things perfectly. It was not too crowded and we were able to do everything without much of a wait. 
Reese is finally able to enjoy a lot more so it was fun for all 4 of us.

Air pillow! 

Of course she's happiest with Daddy

The rule of pumpkin picking is you have to be able to carry your own pumpkin. 
Jaxon of course took this seriously and inspected each pumpkin carefully and tested them out. 

Reese did not. She was dead set on taking the biggest one she could find! 

Let's do a quick look back.

This year.

I have  a lot more catching up to do... Halloween, Reesey's birthday, random cute pictures, Thanksgiving is coming soon and Christmas will be here before we know it. I'll do it. I promise!
