Fall Fest

We usually have a Fall Festival at church on Halloween. This year, mostly due to Ike, it has been canceled. However, the Children's Ministry made sure to have something for the kids at church this morning. They asked all of the kids to wear their costumes too.

John is Handy Manny from Playhouse Disney. Robby is cowboy. I know that he is really Woody from Toy Story, who is actually a Sheriff, but Robby doesn't really know the movie that well, so he just knows that he is a cowboy! Robby also doesn't realize that he is missing a gun for his holster...and what he doesn't know, won't hurt him!!

By the way, did you notice how well my roses recovered from Hurricane Ike? They had been pretty stripped of their leaves, but thanks to the great weather that God has provided since Ike, they are healthy and back to new again!

Afternoon with the Pumpkins

We took the boys to the Texas Feed Stop here in Mont Belvieu to take some pictures with the pumpkins. Plus we really like the truck too!

Family Pictures

We took family pictures yesterday. I have uploaded a lot of them to my Facebook site. Please take a look and let me know which ones you like the best. We took over 200 pictures with my camera until the battery died. There are some more on Becky's camera, but I haven't seen those yet.

We have another chance at Thanksgiving while we are all in Tyler to take some pictures if necessary. We may try either way depending on the weather.

Let me know if you can't view them in Facebook and I will send you the album from Snapfish.

Oh the Irony...

Most people who know me well, know that I rarely dress the boys in character clothes. They may have a few items, especially pajamas, but really I usually stick to polo shirts and jean shorts. My mother, on the other hand, loves knit. Knit, knit, and more knit! If it has a character on it, that's okay as long as it is knit and washable.

When I was in the hospital, it was Spring. It was finally warm enough to wear shorts on a regular basis. John wasn't 3 yet, and even though we had started to buy him some new clothes due to his height, he still needed more. My mom took on this task; plus it gave her an excuse to shop with someone else's money (every women's dream)! She bought several t-shirts and knit shorts for both boys.

So I'm in the hospital, paralyzed, and this is what my boys are wearing to daycare:

Thanks for the play clothes Gramma!

Nap time

Every Sunday we race home from church or out to a restaurant in order to get lunch in before the boys fall asleep in the car. They have such an active time at church that they are usually hungry and exhausted.

Yesterday was no exception. We went out to lunch and had to leave before the boys were finished because their tired, ugly side was coming out for the world to see. (Yes, they do have this side!) I finally got John down in my bed. Robby got in trouble for playing around, so I put him back in his bed. I went back to watching the Texans game.

About 10 minutes later, I hear noises coming from the playroom. I went to check it out, and then grabbed my camera. This is what I found!

When he heard the camera flash, he turned around to say "cheese"; just like he wasn't doing anything wrong. He is certainly the charmer.

By the way, THE TEXANS WON!!

The End

This is the end of the Alphabet Book! I hope that you have enjoyed the pictures. I'm not sure if I'll do the Alphabet again next year; we will have to wait and see what pictures we have. I do know that there will be another book, but I don't know how it will be organized yet.

These are pictures from two very happy boys! John, of course, is wearing Daddy's boots. Who knows what Robby was cheering about, but he was always happy in Ms Cynthia's class.

Grampa loves taking some of his grandsons around in the back of the tractor. He made sure to go slow enough for the boys to really have a good ride. Grampa and Josh appear in the book, and they are the only ones outside of our immediate family to appear ever. Of course, they take pride in their appearances!

More Alphabet!

We went to a pumpkin fest last year in Summerwood (where we are currently looking for a house) that my company supported. The boys had a blast trying to pick their own pumpkin. Robby thought they were big balls that needed to be thrown!

We were at the church festival on Halloween. This was supposed to be a game, but my boys just sat on the table and picked out all the suckers they wanted. Robby was a cute Mickey Mouse with a nuggie (pacifier) in his mouth. John was a bear, which Aunt Dawn generously passed down to us!

I think these pictures speak for themselves! My handsome boys!
