Thanksgiving 2009

We had a busy but fun Thanksgiving this year. Luckily our family lives here so we don't have far to travel. We started off the holiday with lunch at Maymie and Pappy's house. The boys saw their cousins and extended cousins and had a blast playing with everyone. The food was great and it was great to see the whole family. After lunch and some play time, we headed to my nanny's house for our Thanksgiving dinner. The boys got to see all of their older cousins and play with them. The whole family finally got to meet Caroline for the first time, so that was neat. By the end of the day, we were stuffed and the boys were beat. They definitely slept well that night.

We hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving!!! I know we have SO much to be thankful for this year! Our God is so good!

Dress Up!

I was folding clothes the other day and Caleb was "helping" me. He decided to put on some of Shane's socks and work boots and play with his pretend leaf blower...aka one of the pieces to my vacuum cleaner. He played like this for quite a while and actually let me snap a pic. This child has such an imagination!

Like Father, Like Son...

One night we decided to try a new restaurant near our house. Every time we wanted to try it, it looked like there was a long wait. This night there was no wait so we were pumped! The place is called Cheddar's and we had heard great things about it. We loved it! The food was good and the atmosphere was very kid friendly which is a plus for us. Shane decided to order some ribs...he loves him some ribs. Caleb had never had ribs before so we let him try them. After the first bite, he was hooked. He actually ended up eating half of Shane's meal. All I can say is like father,like son.

Trunk or Treat and Halloween 2009

This year we went to two trunk or treats! Thank you Pharr's and Turner's for inviting us and letting us share in the fun! The boys dressed up as UT football players and Caroline was their cheerleader! The boys enjoyed going around from car to car and getting lots of candy. We even got to enjoy a hayride too!

For Halloween, we all went to Maymie and Pappy's house for a yummy dinner and trick or treating. It was rather cold that night,but that didn't stop the boys from running from house to house saying trick or treat. The boys had a blast with all of their cousins. It was so neat to see them really enjoy and understand the concept this year. We had to leave a little early though because we couldn't miss the kickoff for our vols that were playing.
We hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!

The Big Bad Wolf

Instead of a UT football player this year,Caleb decided to tell me at the last minute that he wanted to look like the big bad wolf. We decorated cookies tonight for Halloween. Caleb wanted the black icing so we let him decorate with it. Caleb was left at the table while Shane and I were cleaning up Caden and the huge mess that was made. When we stopped to see what was keeping Caleb so occupied, this is what we found...

This picture doesn't even show the magnitude of his "decorating" himself. Hehad even gone the extra mile and painted black icing on the tops of each finger and toe to truly look like the big bad wolf. He is something else!

Caden just enjoyed and savored every bite of the cookie he decorated!

Family Pics

Before Caroline was born, I told Shane the one thing I really wanted was some great photos taken of the family. I found this photographer through some friends and I just LOVED her work. A week after Caroline was born, Jadie came out to take some pics of the family. I told her that I really didn't have high expectations of getting good pics of the boys because they never sit still. Well, Jadie must have some sort of magical power because the boys did great and I am SOOOO happy with the results. Take a look...

1 month already

I can't believe Caroline is a month old already. Time is flying by. I have to say that Caroline is definitely the most relaxed and laid back baby. She loves to cuddle and is the best sleeper out of all of them. She has already exprienced her first trip to the beach! She is getting so big and I'm looking forward to the many more "firsts" for her that are coming up!

I just love this picture! Her little bottom up inthe air is too cute. I got some bloomers for Caroline to wear, but they are still just a little too big!
