Bowling Birthday Party

A few years ago the only bowling alley within an hour of us closed down.  Finally a new bowling alley opened up this past October, and Jaymi's friend from school invited her classmates to a bowling birthday party!

Halloween Fun

Jaymi always has fun at Halloween.
We have certain traditions that we do every year, like going to the pumpkin patch to choose pumpkins (and of course, the hay ride to get to the patch).
This year, Jaymi went to a Halloween party at her taekwondo school.
She dressed up as a black cat.

Jaymi insisted on going to Galey Farm (our past tradition) for the hay ride to the pumpkin patch.

Jaymi decorated all of our pumpkins this year, and chose to do it with marker instead of carving.
She decorated Mark's pumpkin (on the bottom left) with a screwdriver coming out of the eyeball, and "blood-dripping fangs"! LOL

On Halloween itself, she was dressed as a hamburger this year.

We also got a little Halloween hat for Socks - it was a pumpkin hat.

Even Cookie tried it on, but was NOT thrilled with the idea.

Jaymi wanted to take Socks out trick-or-treating this year, so we just went on our street for a little bit, and Socks was great.  He got so much attention at every house we went to!

School Water Fun Day

Jaymi goes to a fantastic private Christian school, where there are constantly fun social events for the families.
In August, as we all prepared to head back to school, there was a Fun Day at the school and all the kids wore bathing suits, got soaked on a waterslide, and had fun seeing the friends they hadn't seen all summer!
