They See Me Rollin'

CJ loves being in his walker.  Over fall break, we replaced the carpet in our formal areas with wood laminate which allows CJ mobility in his walker in the entire downstairs.  He will run from one end of the house to the other with his arms flailing,  creaming at the top of his lungs, and giggling the whole time.  When he gets going, we all stay out of his way, watch, and laugh with him.  Enjoy these pictures of our wild man!  (Hopefully this isn't a look into his future when he gets his driver's license!)

Pumpkin Carvin' Time!

We utilized this BEEE-A-UTIFUL fall day to carve some pumpkins.  While CJ took his nap, the 2 oldest and I started...one of these two was not too thrilled to be pulled away from "football Sunday" to get gross carving pumpkins. Can you guess which one?

Yep...it was him.  His face says it all!
 Lacey on the other hand LOVED getting dirty in the pumpkin "guts." "Mama look!  I'm not scared, I'm BRAVE!"

Oh these two couldn't be more different from one another....

 Lacey concentrated so hard on tracing around her pumpkin in order for me to carve it.  She loves drawing, painting, cutting...she is such the artist!

Once CJ woke up, it was his turn to get dirty with cleaning out his pumpkin....and he dove right in!  I had to hurry to keep him from not eating what he pulled out.  He is fast!

CJ's final result!

Oh my...the looks on their faces....I just love them so!  haha

Pictorial Update

Here is what we've been up to lately...as depicted from the pictures on my phone. 

Lacey got some new boots...makes her look so much older! 

CJ is learning to use utensils when he eats and he is only wanting to eat table food.

Sometimes, big brother needs a power nap in Daddy's office after school...first grade is hard core! 

Curt and I went on a date night to try a new restaurant which we fell in love with! 

CJ and I are perfecting our selfies...

We are loving our trio and spending time as a family!

'Tis the Season...It's Pumpkin Time!

I love this time of year!  I love the colors of the leaves changing, the feel of the slightly colder weather, cuddling up with a hooded sweatshirt and hot chocolate, watching football while eating chili and of course...visiting pumpkin patches!    A good friend of mine invited our family over to her house to take some pictures and hunt for some pumpkins.  We were thrilled and beyond excited!  Visiting pumpkin patches is a family tradition that we started when Clayton was just a baby and have continued it each year.  Last year visiting pumpkin patches was bittersweet due to CJ being in the NICU.  This year, it is extra special...all our 'pumpkins' are healthy and ready to find the most perfect!

Costumes of course are a must....this year we have two football players and a princess...Belle.

This year, Clayton and Lacey are "passing the pumpkin" and are thrilled to include their little brother in our family tradition.

Now that we have our pumpkins...our princess is just waiting for the 'ball'....

The Halloween Ball!
