Our Trip to Alabama

We had so much fun a few weeks ago, we took a pre-Thanksgiving trip out to see our closer family we have in Birmingham, Alabama. We had such a blast going to see them. They used to live in Lexington, Kentucky which was of course a lot closer, but we are still happy to have them some what close. It was a 7 hour drive, but well worth it. Jackson really enjoyed seeing his cousins. They had fun playing football outside together even though it was a little cold and rainy. Jackson just loved wearing his cousins football helmet as you can see. He acted like a true football player. I don't know if he's just watched too much of the BYU Cougar football games or what, but he has found out how to be ready to play the game.

Jackson also had his first little sleepover with the boys watching Shrek 3. He didn't last very long after the movie ended, but it was nice while it lasted.

We also were happy to be able to stop at two more temples that we haven't seen yet. We weren't able to go inside that day, but we love at least just stopping and seeing them. If you can't see which one they are on the signs, it's the Birmingham, Alabama and the Nashville, Tennessee temple. They looked pretty much the same, being that they are the newer style of temple, but always still a pretty temple. Two more off the list, and still quite a few to go.

Jackson really needed a break from driving in the car, so we let him run wild in the leaves next to the temple grounds. The leaves were still really pretty there.

Indianapolis Museum

Jackson and I had so much fun going to the Indianapolis Museum with some friends. He just loved seeing the huge polar bear, race car, riding the horse on the carousel with his buddy, Shawn, playing in the water area, etc. It is always such a fun place to go to.

As you can see we've been trying to get Jackson ready to have a little sister. Jackson enjoyed dressing her up as you can see.

We had such a fun Halloween this year. Jackson was able to understand what was going on more. He's getting older so holidays are a lot more fun with him now. Jackson was a 101 Dalmation doggy this year, as you can see. He just loved being a dog. He's such a huge fan of dogs that he was so excited to be one. Here are a few fun pictures we took of going Trick or Treating and of our pumpkins we had fun carving.

This house was so cool. They went all out with decorating for Halloween. Jackson loved going to this house the most.

This was Jacksons pumpkin that we carved with a fun face.

I thought it'd be fun to attempt carving Thomas the train this year and Dave found a fun idea to do in his pumpkin. Do you get it?

A few nights before Halloween our ward had a fun Halloween Party where they had dinner, played games, had a chili cook off, pumpkin carving contest, trunk or treating, and lots of other fun things. We had so much fun going and seeing all of our ward friends all dressed up in their costumes. Here are a few pictures of us at the Party. This year I was dressed up as a Vet doctor along with Jackson being a dog and Dave was Roger, the owner of all the dogs in the 101 Dalmation movie.

This is Jackson acting like a dog. Bark, Bark!!!
