Halloween 2012

Will got to wear his costume to school today.  The school sent me this picture, but he doesn't look very happy.

We carved our pumpkin after school. Will wanted to watch me, but he didn't want to help. I think it turned out cute.

Due to a potty accident at school, Will's Jake costume was not available to wear to trick-or-treat.  Luckily I had bought Will an Iron Man costume just for play, but he decided to wear it Halloween night.

Mom, Dad and John came over for dinner, and Mom and John passed out candy while me, Clay and Dad took Will around the neighborhood.  

The following is a conversation that Will had with one of our neighbors:

Neighbor:  Wow! You are Iron Man.
Will: (Pointing at his costume) This is just a costume, I am still Will.
Neighbor: (Looking confused) Oh, uh, okay.

This kid continues to crack me up.

Fall Festival at Church

Last night was the Fall Festival at our church and Will got to wear his costume for the first time. He chose his costume this year and picked Jake from "Jake and the Neverland Pirates".  He was so excited about it.

At the church, we played games, went on a hayride, and Will even did this bunge jump thing. I was so surprised that he would do this by himself.

Ellie was celebrating her first Fall Festival and Kristen had her dressed up in the cutest little red bird outfit.

After we played, it was time for truck-or-treat. We walked around with Will's friend, Gavin.  They were both Jake!!

We were close to the front of the line, so Will was able to go back to our car and hand out candy. That ws the most fun to him!

Pumpkin Patch 2012

Sunday, John and Jayme volunteered to take Will to the Pumpkin Patch while I was at the beach.  Mom tagged along with them too and Jayme's sister, brother-in-law and niece met them there.

John sent me some pictures and I know that they all had a great time!

I got home last night and the pumpkin patch is all Will talks about out of all the things he did this weekend.  He tells me how he picked a pumpkin and about riding on the tractor. He even told me where everyone sat in the car on the way to and from the pumpkin patch. He can't wait to "cut a face" on his pumpkin.

Thanks John and Jayme for taking Will and always being willing to spend time with him. He loves you both so much!

Last night, Will and I went to the gym with Clay.  It's our normal routine, but last night we had a special surprise.

Ellie and Kristen came with Jordan!!!  Me and Kristen got to walk, Ellie got to sleep, and Will go to play.

After our walk, I got to hold sweet Ellie for a while.  I got Will to agree to a picture.

Right after the picture he said "Can you not hold her anymore, I need to sit in your lap!" He gets a little jealous! :)

When we got home, I showed him the picture of the two of them and he said "I love Ellie, she's my favorite baby."  In addition to being jealous, he is the sweetest kid I know!

Random Photos from Clay's Phone

Clay had to take Will to the doctor because he had a fever. Clearly, he felt fine!

Silly faces

Being a Power Ranger

Watching Power Rangers!

We spent the afternoon at Paul and Shelley's watching football. Will got quiet and this is what we found.

Change of Plans

This weekend did not go as planned.

Saturday, we were supposed to go to the game but Will and I ended up staying at home.  Friday night, Clay and I went out with our friends, Nick and Amanda. After dinner, we picked up Will and headed home to go to bed.  Will went to sleep around 10 pm and then got up at 11:30 pm.  He then stayed up until 3 AM!!!! So needless to say, when my alarm went off at 5 am to head to Auburn, neither Will nor I were up for it.  So Clay went without us and Will and I stayed in bed. 

It was a rough day.  Will was tired and cranky and I was tired and cranky.  We did a little bit of shopping, had some lunch, and then both took 3 hour naps.  When Clay got home, he was tired and cranky.  He didn't get much sleep either and Auburn Football is not so great! 

Since we all had a rough Saturday, Sunday was spent going to church and sleeping!!!  Sunday afternoon, I was bored so I made a wreath for our front door and this "Y" for our side door. I love how they turned out.

Now it's back to work. I am looking forward to this weekend - Girl's Beach Trip!!!!

Football and the Fair

Auburn had an off week this weekend, so we took the opportunity to do some other fun things.

On Friday, we went to Ashville to see our local high school team play and see our friend's daughter cheer.

Will loved it and has been asking to go back. He loved that the team we played was green!

On Saturday, Clay played golf and I cleaned the house.  When Clay got home, we took Will to the local fair.  

He had so much fun on this race car ride. 

We left the fair and went to get some shaved ice!  That night Clay and I went to dinner with Paul, Shelley and John.

Sunday, was church and resting!!
