Oakley rolls over

Oakley John: 3 Months

Month 3 with this little man was fantastic! We are starting to see his personality which has been a lot of fun! He started adorable! He laughs when we say mama or dada, when we clap his hands, and when he's tickeled!:) He slept through the night a couple times this month which was a wonderful surprise! He takes a longer nap 1-2 hours in the a.m. and a couple naps in the afternoon. Hopefully, he's close to getting on a more consistent schedule soon. He started reaching for toys, and has his hands in his mouth constantly.:) I caught him one day staring at his hands fascinated that he can control them. Watching this little one develop amazes me. We have such an AWESOME Creator! 

Getting a stronger neck and starting to push up through his arms:)

He's got his Saturday sweats on:)
Nothing sweeter than a sleeping babe:)

Halloween '14

 Halloween this year was a lot of fun! The Dees' are so great at coming up with unique costumes. They came up with the idea of the kids being hipsters. Their costumes turned out just adorable! We took them to their church's fall festival a couple nights before halloween....

On Friday, we let Sloane pick their costumes. She went back and forth between Anna and Elsa all week:) We went to Mike's office trick or treat during the day. Mike was Ron Swanson off of Parks and Rec. It was a lot of fun! Then Friday evening, we went trick or treating around our neighborhood. This was the first time we live in a safe enough neighborhood to go door to fun to meet all our nice neighbors:) We were only out about 15 minutes before we all got to cold. We then handed out candy to trick or treaters, and it all managed to disappear in about a half hour. Haha, we were glad to not have it around through:)

Nebraska trip

We got to go up to Nebraska for a week during harvest. We went this week instead of homecoming week since Oakley was in the hospital. Mike met my parents on a Sunday with us in KC and then he came up Thursday after work. 

It was such a special trip. Oakley got to meet so many was wonderful! My mom helped out with the kids while I got my hair done....such a treat! We got to watch Luke in a couple football games, and see Jaydon keep up with his wrestling training. Mike got to go to a Husker game with his dad and brothers. We all finished the trip out in Omaha at Olivia and Scarlett's frozen birthday party. 

Although, we don't see family often since we're farther away. Time together is precious! 
Sloane was so excited for the combine! 

She's not sure but she trusts papa:) 

Sleepy kids:)

Me and the kids got to watch Luke play on Monday. Mike came down and we all got to watch him on Friday as well. Friday was a cold game...the kids and I ended up in the pilot for three quarters but we were still glad to be there cheering Luke on! It is super fun coming back to watch younger siblings throughout their sporting events:)
Oakley's first football game...watching Uncle Luke play!
Mike made it to watch Luke play his last game of the season!

Oakley got to meet so many people the week we were up there! It was so special! We captured a few pics with some but not all:)
