Sorry for the long time since my last post... I'll try to stay more consistent in my postings from now on!!! Well, I'll catch everyone up on the latest and greatest events, and work my way back from there. This past Friday we went to a party at our friends' house-- the Jordan's-- they live on a nice piece of land out in the country. Since we are not (and they are not) really in to Halloween, they invited us and several other families over for a party. It was a great time-- food, fellowship, campfire, and lots of activites for all the kids. They hand-made a pumpkin pinata, and all the kids-- from the youngest to the oldest could take a whack at it if they wanted. Josiah (assisted by daddy) had a total of 6 whacks at the thing. I would think that with his active gusto that he displays at home, he would really get into hitting it. However, he mainly just showed a huge grin, looking at everyone looking at him, and gave some gentle taps. He enjoyed it though, and we are expecting a harder hit next year. He also enjoyed throwing bean bags into buckets to get candy as a prize. Yes-- he really enjoys his candy. Unfortunately, we have no pictures to show... wish we did!
