This is kind of a hodge podge of pictures. I had to clear off some pictures from this week's visit to my sister's house and noticed I hadn't pulled off some really cute ones from a while back!

This is a picture from when my big brother came up to visit! Jesstine thought he was so cool! She even cuddled up to him for a picture or two! I put this one in black and white because it made it so precious! We miss you Uncle Billie!

This picture was taken on one of the few actual cold days that we have had this fall! Jesstine and I were on our way to her first parade! Daddy was in KC with Uncle Seth for a Cowboy's football game, so us girls had some fun of our own! I LOVE this picture! She looks so beautiful!

This is a picture of Jesstine at my mom's houst. She is so proud of herself! She is sitting in a rocking chair that my grandfather sat in when he was a little boy! She is getting to be such a big girl and it was so neat to see this heirloom being passed down and to think that my daughter is sitting in the same chair my grandpa, mom, and myself sat in as small children!

Now on to the next set of pictures. As I mentioned my mom, Jesstine and I took a road trip to see my older sister and family this week! My sister had just celebrated her birthday and we thought it would be good to go down and wish her a happy birthday in person! While we were there, her MOPS group was doing a fundraiser to support all of their functions for the rest of the year. They had a photographer come in and do "old timey" pictures. We thought it would be neat to get all of the girls together to do it! It was SO much fun! We had some waiting time after we got the three girls dressed and so I tried my own hand at the "old timey" photography with my camera phone. I got a couple of good shots! The other pictures are just from the playtime that the kids all had! These girls are going to be trouble someday! Charis and Jesstine are just starting to realize that they are the same height and age. They are really starting to notice each other and play more. There were several times when they would stand face to face and poke each other almost as if to see if the other was real or not! It was so sweet! I got a picture of them hugging as we were leaving, but it is so blurry, it doesn't do the moment justice! Without further adieu, here are the pictures!

This was the original shot that I took of Jesstine in her "old timey" dress. Grace bought a set of pearls that magnetically clasp in the back. Jesstine thought they were so much fun! She wore them for the entire time we were doing photos. It worked because it fit the setting well.

Here is the shot in a sepia tone and zoomed in. The blurriness almost makes it more "old timey!" It is now the wallpaper on my phone! She reminds me of my mom in this picture!

Here she is strutting her stuff and showing she can walk! She had a good time just walking from place to place just showing she could do it! It also made for a cute picture albeit blurry!

Uncle Murray thought it would be fun to put a cheesehead on Jesstine and rub it in Daddy's face! The Cowboy's (Stephen's favorite NFL team) and the Packers (Murray's favorite) play on Sunday this week! Notice Jesstine is trying really hard to push it off of her head!!!!

Here are just a few pictures of the girls (Alexis 3, Jesstine 15 months, and Charis 13.5 months) playing! This vehicle didn't have a working battery, so it didn't move. They had fun climbing in it together though!

As always we pray that all is well and thank you for stopping by to see what Jesstine is up to!

In Him,
Lacie, Stephen, and Jesstine
