Look Who's TWO!!!!

I'm not sure where the time went but Garrison will be turning two on Oct. 30th. We had his birthday party on Saturday, Oct. 24th. It was a barnyard theme. One of his favorite sayings is "YeeHaw!" and I found plates that said it! I had someone make his cake (it was so cute and tasted amazing!). He really enjoyed his friends and family! MawMaw and Big gave him a Monster Truck and he loves it! They also gave him a cowboy hat and boots (that he calls "boops") Grammy and PawPaw gave him a firetruck that makes a lot of noises and he loves to play with that too! We are so blessed to have this little man in our lives...Happy Birthday Garrison!

Pumpkins 2009

Can't believe it's already time for pumpkins!!! We decided to stay local this year and went to Magnolia Farms pumkin patch. The kids had a good time picking out their pumpkins. We carved the pumpkins when we got home and the kids did so great! Happy Fall ya'll!!!

camping fall 09

During Fall Break, we packed up our camper and went all the way to...Fort Yargo. We strategically planned it so that if we needed to come home, we could. We are quite glad for the forethought, since, of course, we did have to come home. Everything was going so well. The kids were playing so well together outside. We ate pizza and breadsticks, had a fire, roasted marshmallows and all! Around 8:00pm we went in and got everyone a bath and started a movie. We all watched it together and at 10:00pm we called it a night. Sort of. I was wanting Garrison to sleep on the pullout couch with Ryleigh. He did not think that was a good idea. He latched onto me and that was that. He slept on my chest for a few hours and everytime I tried to slide him over onto the bed, he'd hike his leg back over me. Finally at 2:30, I heard him real close to my face say, "mama"...nose, eyebrow, mouth..etc. So, at 4:30 AM, I said to Lindsey, " about I take him home!" At 4:30 AM we headed back to the comfort of our very own bed. I laid him down and he said, "nite, nite. luv you" and that was that. Despite the night, we had a great time and it was so much fun hanging with our family of five!
