One day after he woke up from his nap, Brady went into Rayna's room to wake her up. I heard an interesting noise so I went in to check it out and there he was, sitting on top of the changing table, trying to turn on the cd player. He loves listening to the music in Rayna's room. The other pictures are of him in his "boat." Any time there is a tub or basket around, he dumps everything out and turns it into a boat. Such a silly boy!
I tried to get some more pictures of Rayna during ballet the other day. They didn't turn out real well though. I did get a few during free dance time. That is where all the kids get to go in and dance around with the ribbons and scarves. Brady thinks that is great! Rayna loves working on the barre and seeing herself dance in the mirrors!
We got to go swimming the other day for Blake's birthday party. Rayna was soooo excited! She has been asking and asking to go swimming lately. Both kids had so much fun! They love the water. Rayna swam all around by herself with her life jacket on and practiced some without it too. Brady hung out with me and didn't want to get out!

Here are the kiddos all dressed up for Halloween. Rayna chose to be Belle this year. That worked out great since she already had the shoes and dress in her dress up box! Brady ended up being a skunk and was so dang cute! He was an absolute hit everywhere we went! They had a great time dressing up for Halloween and got to go to the carnival at school and also to the Fall Family Festival at church. We even did a little bit of trick or treating at the end of the night. Needless to say, they were both exhausted and actually slept in today!
Brady got to go on his first pony ride at the Fall Family Festival. It was so cute! He started to cry when I first put him on, but then he realized it wasn't too bad. Rayna loved her ride as always! (The last picture is of them waiting in line and one of the few decent pictures I actually got of the two of them together!)
We took the kids trick or treating to a few houses in our neighborhood. They were so cute. We did take the wagon with us because they were getting pretty tired. There is also a picture of Brady enjoying one of his treats after we got home. He loves his treats!
We had a great time carving pumpkins the other night. Rayna was very excited to be more involved this year. She loved cleaning her pumpkin out and even drew the face on it herself. She tried really hard to help cut out the face, but did need some help. Brady had fun watching and playing with the pumpkins that we hadn't carved yet.
We went over to Bend last weekend to visit Grammy and Auntie Cheri. While we were there, we went out to the pumpkin patch and met up with some good friends. We had a wonderful time. The kids loved seeing all the animals and playing around on everything. Rayna got to go on a pony ride and was very excited. Her pony's name was Precious. Brady got to sit on the tractor which he thought was so cool. His favorite part though was the train ride (he loves trains right now!). They also had a really neat pirate ship you kid could climb around on and a hay maze to play in. We had a great time!
