Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! This was Lucy's first Halloween and Tyler's first "real" experience with trick or treating. In past years we've walked him down to my parent's house and knocked on their door and gone to a few neighbor's houses. Last year he refused to even put on the costume until we got to Grandma & Grandpa's house! He had more fun handing out candy to the big kids...but this year he knows ALL ABOUT candy. He was excited to put on his costume and go door to door with the neighbor kids. Lucy Jane was Tenderheart Care Bear and Tyler was a dinosaur named Grump-o-Saurus Rex.

The kids got to dress Halloween-y all day long. They had their cute outfits that they wore during the day, their costumes, and then their pajamas. It's fun to be festive when you have cute kids to dress up! I think they enjoyed themselves and now they are ready to move on to the next holiday...Thanksgiving! Tyler realizes that once that holiday is past it is all about Santa Clause!

3/4 of a 1-Year Old

Lucy Jane is officially 3/4 of the way to being one. Where does the time go?! She is growing so fast and accomplishing so many things in a short amount of time. Her eighth month was quite the month for milestones...she balanced and stood on her own, walked with a walker, clapped, waved bye-bye, got teeth, and took steps. She's quite the overachiever! We got her pictures done on Sunday, October 28th to commemorate 9 whole months. She did a great job posing for her picture.

Pumpkin Patch with the Punkins

This Sunday we went to the pumpkin patch with Mat, Brooke, Aria, and Matea. Tyler was SO excited to pick out a PERFECT pumpkin and pet the animals. The kids ran through the pumpkin maze, saw cock-a-doodles (chickens), pigs, goats, and cows, and they went on a wagon ride. Tyler had a great time picking out pumpkins...little ones for Lucy and big ones for Mommy and Daddy. He had a soft spot for the damaged ones. We had a lot of fun and especially enjoyed the caramel apples!

Digital Scrapbooking

I haven't really done any digital scrapbooking, but I tried my hand at it today. I was trying to create a signature for something. It's kind of neat, but not as user friendly as I would have thought! I guess I'm used to poring over my pages and moving my pictures all around. But, anyways, this is what I created. The kids are adorable so it makes the page look matter what I've done to it!

My Lil' Eating Machine


I think that Lucy is a girl after my own heart. She's just so dang independent all the time. She is now standing on her own. She also feeds herself big people food. Before I know it she'll be walking and driving and moving out! A bit overdramatic, but still!

Lucy is loving to eat green beans, baked beans, and dessert. Just like her mommy. I wish I could get Tyler to like something OTHER than dessert. Oh well...kid after my own heart. At least he knows the difference between healthy and junk food. It doesn't stop him from asking for junk from the pantry.
