This and That

I thought that I would get the creepy stuff out of the way! Jimmy and I went to a Halloween party last night and this was what I got to come home with. Jimmy looked great! It took a minute for people to recognize him.We are not a very likely pair. We had a great time at the party. It was fun to be around some adults for a change.
On a cuter note, we went to the pumpkin patch with the kids and we had a lot of fun. It's located on a farm that has all kinds of stuff for the kids to do. We rode on a little trailer puiled by a tractor to get to the pumpkin patch and Tan thought that was pretty fun. Rylee even liked it. She didn't care, however, about getting her picture taken.
Tanner got to pick put his own pumpkin. It wasn't very hard for him to decide, he pretty much picked the one that was closest to where we were standing. Jim was OK with that since it was small and he had to carry it around for the rest of the time that we were there.
They had this little thing to take pictures with. I told Tan to put his face in it so I could take one and I guess he did! He's so funny. They also had all kinds of farm animals to pet and little rides. It was perfect for a little boy who doesn't have much of an attention span.
Rylee is getting so big! I can't believe she is going to be one next month!
The other day, Tan had the camera and was taking all kids of pictures. This is a self portrait (obviously!). He was having so much fun with the camera. Some of the pictures he took are pretty funny.
The boys! The weather has been pretty nice lately so we took the dogs to the park to let them run around a bit. Tanner and Jim also got a little exercise!

A Few New Things

We have a new addition to our family. He' s a bit bigger than the other dogs, but he seems to fit right in. His name is Barak (pronounced Barick) and he's an English Mastiff. Jim has been wanting a Mastiff for so long and just happened across an add for this little guy. He is just as sweet as can be. As you can see, he's pretty big.

Tanner already loves him. He didn't take any time to adjust, just walked right in like he has always lived here.

My parents got some miniature goats that are just adorable. Tanner was pretty concerned that they didn't have their mommy and daddy. It was pretty sweet.

The other day, Rylee thought that a crayon would make a good snack. It was a huge mess. I literally had to scrape it from her teeth. That girl puts everything in her mouth!

Tanner had started to draw almost constantly. He really needed a picture by some of the pictures he drew.

I just thought I'd throw in a picture of my new haircut. It's super cute! Rylee is totally not interested in taking a picture. She couldn't keep her eyes off of the new horse, I mean, dog!

30 Already?!

The rumors are true folks, I just turned 30! It's not so different than 29, but I do feel like I have to be a little more responsible. BLAH!! I had a good birthday. Jimmy did so good this year, remembering all of my favorite things. What a sweetie! He had to work that night, so my mom took me to dinner at Olive Garden, my FAVORITE place, and we had a really good time. My sweet little daddy got me an ice cream cake from Baskin Robins, and it was just perfect. I think Tanner was pretty impressed that the cake AND the ice cream were all in one. Birthdays are just not what they used to be, but I was with my family, and it was a good day. Thanks to everyone for the Birthday wishes!

Feels Like Fall

The other day it was pretty nice outside so I thought I would sit out there with the kids and get a little fresh air. Tanner is still working on learning to ride his scooter. I'm sure the boots aren't helping any. But he does LOVE his Spiderman sunglasses!

Rylee loves being outside. She sat and watched Tan ride his scooter and had a snack of Gold Fish crackers. It was really nice to just sit and enjoy the day. I'm looking forward to more days like this. Yay Fall!
