neighborhood halloween party

Ariel and Sebastian

Arts and crafts table

Ernie was the best costume at the party

Yesterday was the neighborhood play group 3rd Annual Halloween party.  We had a ball!  The kids danced, decorated cookies, did arts and crafts, bounced in bounce houses and ate pizza for lunch.  Abby met these friends when they were all around 6 months old.  They are very special friends and hopefully will be life long friends as well.  Happy Halloween 2011!

9 months

Weight - 20 pounds

Height - 30 inches

Hunter is NINE months old today.  He is such a JOY and happy all of the time....even at 5 a.m!  He has 2 teeth on the bottom and 4 are coming in on the top right now.  He is eating all the time (as you can tell!) and can drink out of his sippy cup.  He still takes 3 naps a day.  One of the three is usually an hour now so that is nice.  He goes to bed between 6:30/7 but still wakes up WAY too early.  We are still working on that.   He is scooting all around and gets up on all fours, but won't crawl quite yet.  However, if Abby has something that he wants on the floor, he can get to it quickly!  Abby is still an amazing big sister. She is so precious to him and is such a HUGE help to me.  Happy 9 months, Hunter!

more on the Bahamas

 What an amazing trip we just had to the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.   About a year and a half ago we started planning this trip and it did not disappoint!  There were 10 of us and we had a great time to say the least.  All day we would sit out by the pool, hit the huge water slides, enjoy some great people watching (we named many new "friends"), do a little dancing, and just relax in the sun.   Some swam with dolphins, some gambled (yep..table out next to the pool),  and some got amazing massages.  Each evening we would go to fabulous restaurants and eat ourselves silly.  Then we would start all over again the next day.  Doesn't sound too bad, huh?

Bo and I are so blessed to have such an amazing group of friends from Baylor.   We are raising our kids together and what a joy that is to walk beside these friends as we meet those every day challenges.    What a blessing they are to my life.  Already planning for the next trip...spring of 2013.  Will see where THAT adventure takes us!

arboretum 2011

My favorite two in the world!

When you can't get them to smile, tell them to make a silly face!

I LOVE this time of year!!!  Yesterday we went with friends to the arboretum.  I love how it is full of pumpkins in the fall.  So beautiful and the kids have a ball running through the houses made of pumpkins.   It was a gorgeous day and my boy was all tuckered out on the way to the car!

October 15th is pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day.  This week I have been praying for many families out there who have lost precious babies way too soon.  You know one is EXTRA special to my heart and has touched many.  Please remember to lift these families up too!

pumpkin patch 2011

Have to pose with the characters

All aboard!

Sweet friends

We went to the Flower Mound pumpkin patch today with friends.  We have been the past 3 years and this year was the best one yet.  The kids are at the age to just go and play and had a ball together jumping in the bounce house, going on a hay ride, running around the pumpkins and finding their way through the hay maze.  The weather was perfect for our picnic lunch with over cast skies and a breeze.  This makes me so thrilled October is HERE and the holidays are upon us!!  Happy Fall!!
