October has been a big month for us, that is why we have 3 postings! The month started out with Kris and Tonya's 6th anniversary. We celebrated about 10 days early because there was rain and Kris could get off in time to take Tonya out for dinner. At 36 weeks pregnant, it was a little hard to pack in a great meal, but we still enjoyed our time together eating at a nice restaurant in Paducah and going for a walk in the mall.
Josiah is growing up too quickly. Not only is he taking seriously his quickly approaching new responsibilites as being a big brother again, he is also wanting to get ready by himself! He is combing his own hair down, brushes his own teeth, and gets himself dressed with a little fashion advice from Mommy about what is appropriate to wear each day :-)
Since life is fixing to be really busy soon, Tonya took time the last couple weeks before baby arrived to spend special time with Josiah and Micah. We went to a railroad museum in the area and they boys loved it! They got to watch several large model train sets, and met Thomas the train :-)
The railroad museum is run by retired conducters and engineers who love to talk about their work. This is an old control panel from a train that Josiah got to operate.
Micah loved climbing all over the control panel more than operating it, but did like following the model trains around as the men showed them to us.
Josiah loves getting his picture taken!
Another night earlier this month we took the boys to "Ya Ya's Island", and play place for young children. Josiah is admiring the aquarium with small sharks and sea stars.
Tonya couldn't get on the inflatable equipment being very pregnant, but Kris joined in all the fun while she took pictures.
This was Josiah's favorite place to play: a huge slide at the end of a rope ladder!
Our Sunday School class threw Tonya a baby shower this month as well. We didn't need much since this is our third boy, but diapers and other baby necesities were generously given to help us keep the nursery stocked!
