Apparently, this morning Jacob decided to play with my phone. Somehow, he actually opened the Blogger app on my phone, wrote some message, that only he can understand, and posted it too. Either he's super super smart, or super super lucky. Either way, it was super super funny for me to look at my phone and read that my post on Blogger was successfully uploaded. Ha! So if you can tell us what he wrote, please let us know!

Fall is one of the most beautiful times of year. Maybe it's seeing all of God's creativity in the colors of the trees, and the crispness in the air...its just an amazing time of year. While raking leaves is not one of the joys of fall, it does make for fun pictures!
Since getting a couple of things in the mail recently, Jacob has been very interested in the mailbox and likes getting as close to the edge of the street as he can, since he's not allowed in the street. Ha!
After Jeff cleaned up all the leaves, Jacob had to play some more baseball!
|Jackson was with us the whole time, even though this was the only picture with him. He loves this time of year too! He spends alot of his day outside watching the birds and eating leaves. Ha! So silly!|

Halloween was successful this year. It was the first time that Jacob really understood what was going on. After we went to most of our neighbor's houses, I asked him if he wanted to go home or do one more door. He said, "One more door," then when we finished another house he would say, "One more door." He trick-or-treated our entire street and then was ready to go home. SO funny!
|The Astronaut says, "Happy Halloween!"|
|Jacob looks like a "Winkler" here, specifically, Bob Winkler!|
|Ready to Trick or Treat!|
|At the neighbor's house!|
|Looks like this Astronaut had a successful mission!|
Yes, you read correctly in the title...its says ARKANBILT. Jacob is a torn football fan. See, his family would suggest that he be a fan of Arkansas sports teams, but he has such strong ties to Vanderbilt because of his life saving experiences there (and it's where his mama got a degree, and possibly his future University of choice, just sayin'). So, for the special occasion where Vanderbilt and Arkansas football teams play each other, Jacob is a divided fan. At least for now...however, he did predict an Arkansas Win...
Here's some pictures from "Game Day."
|At the game, both teams were warming up. It was a little chilly to start, but warmed up nicely in the sun!|
|Jacob with Aunt Jenny|
|See, Chappy, this is how I point; with my thumb just so, and my hand right up on my face. Ha!|
|Enjoying the game with U-Buh and Chappy|
|Can't forget the snacks!|
|A group shot minus Agga. (she was taking the photo)|

|There's Jacob and Agga!|
|Lunch was hotdogs and water. Yum!|
|Whoo, Pig Sooie! Go Hogs! We're all cheering in this photo, except Jacob. He was falling asleep right at the end of the game.|
|...and he's OUT!|
What a great game!...and...Arkansas did defeat Vanderbilt, just as Jacob predicted. :)
It's hard to believe another year of pumpkin picking and Halloween decorating has come again. It seems like just a while ago we had decorated our first pumpkins and gone to the pumpkin patch... Jacob is still as cute as ever, although getting him to sit still long enough to take a decent picture is getting harder and harder, so moving targets and pictures of Jacob in motion are going to have to suffice this year. We did manage to take a few while he was sitting, but they were quick and to the point! Ha!
|Here's Jacob sitting in the wagon with our first pumpkin choice. So cute!|
|It looks like he's praying over his pumpkin in this picture, maybe so!|
|The BIG BOY is pulling the wagon with our choice pumpkins.|
|Smiling Jacob...but about to get up and move...|
|Our two pumpkins. We got a big family one, and one for Jacob to paint.|
|Here's Jacob painting the eyes on his pumpkin. Jackson is supervising.|
|We put his handprints on the back side of the pumpkin.|
|Jeff pulled out the guts of the big pumpkin so I could carve it. Jacob said he wanted circle eyes, a triangle nose and a smile with teeth. Again...Jackson supervised!|
|Here's Jacob's pumpkin that he colored and decorated.|
|Here's the family pumpkin! Jacob liked that it said, "BOO" on the side.|
|Our precious "moving" boy and our family pumpkins!|
