Last week my friend, Justyne, came over and carved a pumpkin with Caden. He really liked helping her and I think she did a great job! Today we walked to a market near our house and they were giving candy to the kids and letting them decorate little pumpkins. I took a picture of the one we made. We are artists, eh?!
Poor Jeff hurt his back this morning so I took Caden out to get candy rather than him. Caden would go up to the houses all by himself and ring the doorbell. He told other kids, "I'm an elephant and this is Abbey!". Of course he was an elephant and of course he had to take Abbey with him *smiles*. He said he was the Daddy and Abbey was the baby. ;) I took a picture of Cayleigh snuggling Ella (her elephant) during her nap today. I don't know what it is with our kids and elephants! :)
Cayleigh was a little pumpkin but she wasn't the slightest bit happy to be in that costume. We took her to Auntie Kim and Uncle Mike's house and then Jeff took her home while Caden and I walked back and went to houses along the way. He got so much candy that I don't know what we're going to do with it all. On the walk home Caden said, "I had so much fun, Mommy!". Too cute!
Little Cayleigh didn't look the same when we got home as she had a big goose egg on her head. :( We have candy on a chair by the door to pass out and I guess she was trying to look at it and fell and hit her forehead on the corner of the wall. Jeff felt terrible although there wasn't anything he could have done. Cayleigh walks everywhere now and she falls at times. Poor baby girl. I hope her head looks and feels better in the morning. :(

When we woke up this morning it was snowing so Jeff took the kids outside. Caden LOVED it. Cayleigh had fun too but we had to take her back inside soon after she went out because she doesn't have a snowsuit yet. :( That is on the agenda for today so soon she'll be able to join in with her big brother. :)
In the picture of Jeff and Cayleigh it looks like they have dirty faces but it's just because our camera got wet... ;)

In these pictures I am 16 weeks (in the sweater) and 17 weeks (in the dresses when I couldn't make up my mind what to wear to church on Sunday *smiles*). Now I am 18 weeks. I have an appointment with my doctor on Thursday and in just a few weeks I have my ultrasound where we could find out the sex of the baby although we aren't going to. We didn't know Caden was going to be a boy and it is a little more exciting that way. We're going to keep names a surprise too (that is IF we can agree on any *hee hee*). ;) My hair is super short because I wanted to grow it out from a more even length and it's dark because I'm trying to get it back to my natural colour. I'm still getting used to it. :S
*Make sure you check out the next post because it's of Cayleigh walking*
Well, I'm back! :) I've been putting lots of pictures on facebook rather than on the blog because it's faster and we've been pretty busy around here. Jeff was ordained on Sunday and we are very thankful for his job at the church and that I can stay home now full-time. He LOVES his work and that is nice to see. :)
Our little Cayleigh took her first steps a few weeks before she turned 1 and just these past few days she's been cruising around the house. It's so cute to watch! Sometimes she would rather crawl because it's faster but more and more I see her walking her cute little walk. Sorry the video is so dark but I took it right before the kids went to bed. Poor Caden is really sick with the flu so he was on the couch watching "Mighty Machines". He hasn't thrown up so far today (which is better than the dozen or so times he was sick yesterday and into the night) but now he has a fever. I pray he gets better soon and that Cayleigh doesn't catch this awful bug. My stomach feels a little queasy today so I'm also praying I don't catch it. Oh the joys of flu season...
