This weekend we had our church's Fall Carnival which is probably one of the top 10 events for the kids (not me!!!!) every year.  They love it. Games and prizes galore.  I have now remembered how dangerous this time of year is for me with all that chocolate!!!  They have no idea what's in their candy stash so they don't notice if one or ten mini chocolate bars are missing:)

Here's just a test shot I took of my boys as we were setting up the photobooth.  
I also did a super sweet newborn session on Saturday.  Such a beautiful baby who has been his parents hope, dream and prayer for the last 6 years.  Love it.  I love, love, love little babies and would redo these last 5 months a million times over.  Except for the C-section and the engorgement. Oh Nya, you are the bestest!!  Except for bottles, you are terrible at that.  She still won't take one and she won't really eat food either.  Oh well, I will just never be away from her for more than 3 hours:)

I ran a lot this week!! In 5 days, I ran 3 times; a 4 km, 3 km and a 6 km run! Go me!  The 6 km run was with the running room and it went well.  I'm pretty proud of myself for that.  Each time I did 10 minutes running and 1 minute walking.  My time is not great but it wasn't terrible at all.    

So, Gary spent the weekend dealing with food poisoning.  He rested all Saturday so that he could spend 3 hours at the fall carnival.  I did the first hour of photos while he took the kids around and then I brought all the kids home while he did the last 2 hours of photos.  He even took today off of work to recover.   Not a fan of seeing Gary sick.  I don't like seeing him under the weather and it's just really gross.

Oh ya, I meant to record how the Parent Teachers Meeting went for Kai.  He is doing well:)  He is excelling at reading, writing and math.  He just needs more space between his words.  He would love to do everything that the grade 2's are doing and his teacher does allow him to do some of it.  I didn't know this, but apparently he was hugging everyone in his class (teacher included) and kissing the girls.  His teacher talked to him about boundaries so I think he's not doing it any more.  Also, as I knew, he has a problem with being too silly during sharing time.  Apparently he makes the whole class laugh with his ridiculous jokes that don't even make sense.  However, I think he has now learned that that is not appropriate either.  He's a good rule follower so as long as the teacher lets him know what's okay and what's not, he'll obey:)

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
