Pumkpin Patch, Trunk or Treat, Aria and Selah's birthdays!










In the last few weeks we have done several fall and Halloween activities. Selah turned two just a few weeks after Bennett and Aria turned three. At both parties the kids dressed in their Halloween costumes. I love this because it gives them a few more chances to show of their Halloween cuteness. Bennett is a puppy this year. We are borrowing the costume from Miles who was a puppy two years ago. I'm guessing Griffin might be the next in line to wear it.

A few weeks ago our life group went to Gentry's farm to play, check out the animals, and take a hay ride. Bennett loved looking at all the baby cows on the hay ride. I was a perfect day, but the farm was extremely crowded.

This past Sunday we had Trunk or Treat at church. It was lots of fun and complete madness! At first B had no idea what was going on, but after we got a few pieces of candy it came together and he was in heaven! He kept saying "there's more! there's more!" He had two mini cupcakes, two cookies, and a sucker, but he still fell asleep as soon as we got home. Mom was the designated baby holder. She kept Olivia bundled up and warm all night.

Houston's Birthday!





This is a crazy time of year for birthdays! We have been to tons of birthday parties recently, and I just love it! I am such a sucker for kids and birthday parties, even the especially loud parties. Anyway, Houston had his 28th birthday on October 12th. We didn't have a party, but we did make chocolate chip pancakes for dinner that night, which rival cake in my book. Bennett made his daddy a card, and we had a cozy family evening. Houston and I also went out for a nice dinner the next night. It is such a treat to go out alone every now and then!
Check out my adorable babies!

Ava's Turns Three!







Ava celebrated her birthday a few weeks early this year since baby sister Nora was expected so close to her actual birthday. The party was at Pump It Up and the kiddos loved it of course! Truthfully, I think the dads liked it almost as much as the little ones. I wish I had gotten a few pictures of Houston with the giant boxing gloves on. Happy Birthday sweet Ava!

Bennett Turns 2!!!!!!





I have been meaning to post pictures from Bennett's birthday party for ages! I am so proud of our little man! He is just the funniest, sweetest, most adoreable little boy in the whole world! I've been looking forward to this birthday for awhile because I felt like this year he might get excited about his party. We started talking about a Thomas cake and how old he was going to be back in July. He has been a huge fan of Thomas the Tank Engine since his cousins Austin and Garner gave him their trains and train table when we moved. There are many day that the first sound I hear in the morning is Bennett's little feet and "I wanna watch phomas mommy!" I love it! So it had to be a Thomas party. Thanks to everyone who was able to be there on this special day. We love you Bennett!
