Playing catch up!!

Boy have things been busy around here. It is hard to believe that we have been here for five months now. During those five months a lot has happened... Ty started first grade and Miss Lucy started preschool here at one of the local church preschools. Chris is getting busier and busier every day. Even on his busiest days, it's far better than residency. We are really enjoying having a Daddy around! I was put into the R.S. presidency soon after we moved in. Trying to keep up with that on top of that I am pregnant with number four! (about four months along) Exciting and terrifying at the same time... I know the Lord will only give us what we can handle so I guess I will trust him :) I suppose this pregnancy is my excuse for the lack of posts?
I didn't get too sick but sick enough to not want to do anything including eat :) we have done a lot of eating out I am just now getting on top of things like actually wanting to cook and feeling motivated to keep house and hopefully I will post a little more regularly. I have been told recently that I need to ahem... Grandpa R. and Robby.
So with this post I just took a few pictures from the last few month and bunched them together not too exciting but I figured if I want to catch up this is better than making a post for each event...even though I am skipping out on a lot of pictures.


First day of School (August)

Grandparents Day (Sept) We were lucky to have Grandma and Papou Kalakis here we also had Great Grandpa Cowan unfortunately He ended up in the hospital for almost the entire trip.

Picking Pumpkins x2
We had to go back for more :)


Playing in our giant pile of leaves!

A Kalakis tradition found the Cook house
This brought many trick-or-treaters to our house...at least 200!

Halloween...A spy, a 50's girl, and Bat Girl

Finally Ty's first grade had a Thanksgiving feast I was lucky enough to help out!
They encouraged the kiddos to dress up either as a Native American or a Pilgrim... I'm pretty sure the only pilgrims were the teachers.
I love Ty's chocolate face!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!
