Reflections of Christ

Okay so this is the second time I have seen this link, and I feel like I should post and share my feelings and Testimony of My SAVIOR Jesus Christ.
I know with all of my heart and soul that Christ knows me by name. He knows my struggles and my strengths. I am forever grateful for Him and his sacerfice to take on MY sins and die for me that I may be forgiven for all the wrong things I do each day. I am grateful for my knowledge of Him and for His helping hand in my life. Without I know where I would be, I have been there and it's not a fun place. I am grateful for His patience with me. I am grateful for a loving Father in Heaven for allowing his Son to come to earth to allow us the opportunity to choose our life. For us to be able to make our own decisions. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ wants each of us to return to them. We are Sons and Daughter of a loving and caring Heavenly Father. He wants each of us to return and live with him someday.
I hope that as you take a few moments of your day to reflect on the blessing you are giving, you also thank Heavenly Father for sending his Son! May God contiune to bless each of you and your families.

I made these for a few friends. I think it turned out really well. I am pretty proud of myself. I know it's not much but I enjoyed doing them and feel good that I am making things for friends and family.

Pumpkin Patch

We went to a fall festival yesterday. It was way cold, all 3 of us had on 3-4 layers each, but we had a good time. Mommy was the only one of us to get a pumpkin, Peter and Dakota will get one later this week! We went on a hay ride, and saw pumpkins being launched.... only a few, we couldn't stay to long. But I love fall festivals. We are planning on trying to get out to Chattfield for the corn maze too, we will see if we make it. But here are some pictures from yesterday.

Dakota loved his pear!

There was an amazing pumpkin carver there, Dakota didn't like the skelton, but Peter and I thought it was pretty cool.

Autumn Part 2

Jennifers birthday was yesterday and she managed to get it off. So we went to her favorite spot Estes Park. We usually end up at Bear Lake but decided to do something differnt so went to some parts of the park we had not been to yet. We ate lunch and listened to the elk bugle back and forth. Dakota didnt mind it at first, but he could see them at first too. I think it was the bugling coming from the trees that scared him. I told Jenn it reminded me of the movie "The Village". Fun stuff so, we drove around some more and took a walk at Hidden Valley. Went back to Estes for a river and store walk. All in all it was a great day. The weather was great and the drive and walking was great too with all the beautiful scenery. The Fall is a great time of year with the mild temps and changing colors.

Listening to the Elk after lunch.

Dakota trying to figure out what
the noise from the trees is.

I am always walking across the streams
on these fallen trees and I got Jenn and Dakota
not only to cross, but pose for a shot on the tree.

The river walk in Estes Park.

Dakota always likes to get control of the camera
so Jenn helped him take this shot.

Jenn likes that everytime we pass this church
in Allens Park I stop to take a picture.
