A Day with Dad on the train

 James got a new job with Southern Ca Gas Co. An exciting time for our family. He had a little time off before he started his new job. He was now going to be riding the train to LA so he thought he would take it one day to see what to do and get comfortable. He took Carter with him and Carter had a great  time. The picked up a donut and ate it on the train. 
James said they walked around LA for a little bit and got some chicken nuggets for the way home. A homeless man walked by James and Carter and put his fist in the air and said yeah brother! Carter put his fist back in the air and said "yeah!" lol I thought that was funny.

I love this pic. It shows the excitement we all felt about James starting this new job. It was a rough couple years with lay offs at his old job. We know Heavenly Father has a plan for our family and we are grateful for this blessing. He will be working in the tall building on the 20th floor.

Carter had a great day with his Dad!

Jaxon 3 months and Jocelynn playing Basketball

 Time has flown and the 3rd time around I have to say that I love every second of it. I really do. With my first I was stressed didn't enjoy it. With Carter, I enjoyed it a little more. With Jaxon oh my, I'm tired but I love having a baby. I love him so much. He gets kisses from everyone all day. Carter wore this shirt at 3 months so at first I thought I uploaded pics of Carter. At 3 months, he still gets up in the night. He is in his crib in his own bedroom now. He drinks breastmilk but I have given him a couple ounces of formula if I don't have enough milk and he wants a little more. It's nice that he will take both. He smiles whenever Carter and Jocelynn talk to him. He gets excited when he hears a high pitch voice. He gets quiet when there is music. 

 I put him in this bouncer but he is still too small. Carter loved to bounce him though. 

 Jocelynn started basketball and had her first game on Saturday. She loves it and had a ton of fun!

 Carter is always sleeping at random places when we go to bed. One night I got home church. James said he put Jaxon on our bed for his last nap of the night. I went upstairs and Carter laid next to Jaxon and was sleeping with him. I thought it was sweet but it scared me a little bit. 

 This was one Sunday morning. It looks like they are putting weight on Jaxon but they aren't.

 We love Halloween! We first went to the Jergenson's annual Halloween party. It's so fun for the kids and they have a great time! We dressed up also.

 We ate, the kids played games, they had cotton candy and fun music playing. We left after a fun scavenger hunt.

 For Halloween this year we went to the Jensons neighborhood. The Wilsons were going with them also. It was a great neighborhood because everyone is out and the houses are close together. Jaxon slept the whole time.

 This was at the ward trunk or treat. Carter wanted to wear the dinosaur from last year. My mom came with us which was fun and a big help. It was also James last day at Willdan. We had chili and cornbread, the kids played games and went trunk or treating.

Self Reliance Fair

 At church on a Saturday there was a Self Reliance Fair. There was so much there. Police men, Firefighters, Home Depot. and lots of booths. My favorite was the gardening. We hope to start a garden soon. Jocelynn got to try on the firemen uniform.

 Carter loved going in the police car.

 They also made tool boxes.
