As Halloween approaches, we are so ready over here. We love Halloween! Jackson and Mikelle went to The Desert Botanical Gardens with Kendra, Tessa and Alec for the pumpkin festival. It was a lot of fun. The kids loved the hay ride and of course choosing their own pumpkins. It took Jackson forever because most of the pumpkins were dirty, unacceptable!! Our little O.C.D. boy! The weather is finally cooling down, so that was nice too. Bobby was in charge of costumes for him and Jackson since we have no idea if Mikelle will be participating or not. (The doctor thinks not, but we'll see)! So naturally, Bobby will be Captain America and Jackson is Thor. They will be so cute, or handsome! Jackson is shown here in a dinosaur costume that we borrowed from his cousins just to play with. He's not sure how he feels about it. He's not big into hats or hoods, and things on his hands, not a fan. But he's worn it a couple times and seems to like it, for about 5 minutes! The haunted house was done by Mikelle and Kristin. They did it over Conference weekend up in Prescott. Mikelle's mom thought it would be fun to keep the kids entertained, and it worked!! Trenton and Kira did one too, but we don't have any pictures, sorry.

This weekend we decided it was time to face the fact Halloween is coming. We went to a little farm in Glendale, Tolmachoff Farm, and had a lot of fun. Kristin was able to come with us, which is a huge help since Mikelle is moving a little slower these days and Jackson a lot faster! And luckily the weather wasn't too hot, just around 90! There was a lot to see and do, especially for Jackson. He got to ride a train, jump in a bounce house, pet animals, do a corn maze and play on toys. He loved it. He especially loved holding the baby chicks. We had to work on not squeezing, but in the end everyone was fine!

Mikelle's pregnancy is progressing nicely. She is due in about 5 1/2 weeks, but the c-section is scheduled for the 11th of November, just a little over 4 weeks away! She is ready to be done. The doctor doesn't think she will wait that long, but time will only tell. She is measuring big, 37 1/2 last week and has already started dilating, is effaced 30% and the baby's head is pushing down. The doctor said if she gets more dialated, the baby may just fall out if she sneezes. We can only wish labor was so easy!
