Well, I'm not ready for winter yet. Even though it was chilly, Kian and I went out and played the other day. He really gets tired of being cooped up inside.
Oh yeah, I just got done putting him to bed. My FAVORITE thing he currently does, is when I'm rocking him in the dark. He takes out his binkie and looks up at me and gives me a wide open kiss. (on his own, I didn't ask). It's just SOOO sweet. Awww.
So, here's a few recent pictures. Last weekend we went to my inlaws so Daniel and his dad could hunt deer. Unfortunately, they didn't have any luck. So, this weekend they are at it again.. I really hope they get one, it would be a blow to the ego if they don't!
Kian playing in the workshop.
This is my favorite picture! Kian loves his grandpa, and granny too. But, it's funny because his cousins Keara and Easton are just obsessed with their granny. Well, Kian is just in love with his grandpa. He loves to play in his workshop. I think he might be like his daddy.
One of the neighbor's homes we went trick or treating. Kian was on TV as well! KMTV had a crew on our street and filmed many kids that night. Kian was filmed while "waddling" down the sidewalk. Isn't my sister's costume great? She's a "pin up" girl.
Here's Kian with Holden and Pierce, who are Stephanie's fiance's sons..

I'm a penguin!!
We went to a Halloween party a couple days before the actual day. My friend Erin had it for all her friends and family with kids. I dressed up in Daniel's hunting gear for the occasion.
We spent a couple days in KC. We spent the first 2 days (one night) at the GWL. It was super fun. Daniel and I were like little kids taking turns on the big water slides. We decided to take Kian on one of the big ones, b/c a lifeguard said we could. So, we climb the million stairs and get to the top. We thought we could hold Kian, but no, he \had to sit in his own little hole. (it was a long intertube with 3 large holes, like a boat) He's only 18 months so I was thinking this was a little nuts. But, he sat on my legs outstretched under him. I held his little arms. So, we're off and OMG, it went so fast! Then, before long, we were in the DARK!!! It was crazy. I was screaming and Daniel kept asking to make sure I had a good hold of him. I'm pretty sure he could have bruises from how hard I was holding on to him. A lifeguard met us at the bottom and Kian came out waving to him! He loved it. The next time wasn't near so scary.
After GWL, we stayed in the plaza and did some shopping. We had a great little getaway, BUT learned it's not quite as relaxing as it once used to be. Kian hardly got any naps, and that made for a cranky little hyper toddler!
Kian and his favorite cousins, Keara and Easton...
We had a great weekend. We went to Daniel's parents home out in the sticks. Their neighbor has a bunch of pumpkin patches and we went out a couple times to get pumpkins. Kian had a great time. It's a fun place to visit b/c their neighbor also has many animals for kids to see, like miniature pony's, turkeys, usually some new puppies, bunnies, goats, etc.
