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.
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!
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!
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!!!!
I am a mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend, and all things in between. I am married to Clay and love every minute I spend with him. We welcomed our first child, Will, on March 4, 2009, and I don't remember what life was like before him. Life is great and I hope to share some of our moments with you.
