WARNING: Lots to catch up on!

This post has tons of pictures and lots of updates, just to tell you right off the bat.

First Item of Business: WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!
We are so excited. Our offer was accepted about a week and a half ago, we had the inspection done and everything looked great! We are planning to close on it on Oct. 31! We can't wait. It's 4 bedrooms, 2 bath, large backyard. Built in 2003 on a cul-de-sac! This is going to be a great place to raise our family!

Next: We took Mais to the Pumpkin Patch this weekend! We all had a blast!
Mais and Daddy
"Mommy, this one is just my size!"
What a cutie!

Three Generations!

Checking out our loot!

Our lil' pumpkin!
The fam
Maisey the Farmer
She LOVED looking at all of the pumpkins!
"Ok Mom, no more pictures!"

Next: Maisey got her first taste of Dr. Pepper! (I stopped drinking it when I found out I was pregnant, but there was still a 24-pack in the fridge. So Shaun picked up the habit!)

Mais stole daddy's can. Look at that mischievous face!
She saw Mommy catch her in the act.
So Daddy helps her take a drink...
... and now her and Daddy are best friends!
I'm thinking of sending these pictures in to Dr. Pepper. Maybe she could be their new model.
Next: Maisey's mouth has been looking pretty funny lately. She has her four top front teeth, three front bottom teeth, and one random molar on the top left side of her mouth. I didn't even know she was getting her molars until I saw the one all the way through her gums. She is so funny looking. Her mouth is in a lot of pain so she LOVES to bite everything and she likes to eat cold apple slices.
Next: We went to the ward we will be moving in to yesterday for church. Mais was HORRIBLE! We had to take her out several times in all three meetings. I guess it can only get better, right? The ward looks awesome. We are excited to be in a ward where we will stay for a while.
Also, the other day, I caught Mais licking the inside of the washer! So GROSS!!!
Well, she just woke up from her nap, and I didn't get to everything that I wanted, so more later!

I can't even explain how much I love these pictures! I am kind of flipping out inside and wishing soooooo badly I could take Lucy to a pumpkin patch now, but they don't celebrate Halloween here and the only pumpkins I have seen are a green type. I think you should send those pictures into a Halloween contest or something. They belong in a magazine! Congrats on your house! What a huge step to celebrate in life!
