Here are the kids carving pumpkins (or cleaning them I should say!)

For Halloween this year we had an Alex from Wizards of Waverly Place, her sidekick Harper, Ironman, a pumpkin and Superman. A little explanation for all of those who do not watch the Disney Channel. Alex is a teenage wizard so Brianna's costume was basically a trendy outfit with a wand. Harper is Alex's best friend and on the show she always wears something outrageous with a theme. We got the idea for this ice cream themed outfit off of one episode. Anyway, you really need to be a girl between the ages of 8 to 12 to really get it. So here are the cute pictures!

Catching up!

Happy Birthday Baby Boy! Our little Connor boy turned 1 on October 14th. We were going to do the traditional let him have at the cake while sitting in his high chair with his shirt off. However, I sat him too close to the cake while trying to get a cute picture and he just took those clown heads right off! I thought oh well go for it! So, I think the pictures speak for themselves! We sure love you Connor. You have brought such joy to our family and I hope you will always stay so sweet! At one year old you love to smile, play patty cake (you like to say tat a cay tat a cay!) and cuddle. We love you!

Here is our cute boy Connor getting his first haircut when he was 11 months old. We had a hard time getting him to smile for the camera though!

I had my birthday in September. Somehow we ended up with a lot of video and no pictures. Anyway, after many years of trial and error Jason has figured out I like Dairy Queen ice cream cakes and to be taken out to dinner. Thanks honey!

We went on a fun camping trip over Labor Day with some friends. We had a really great time. This first picture is of the kids standing in front of the foundation of a cabin that was in Jason's family for generations.

Jason and I celebrated 11 years of marriage on August 20th. Jason planned a fun trip to Greer, which is a beautiful town just outside of Show Low. Anyway, we enjoyed an evening without the kids and had fun staying at the Tin Star Inn. The next day we went horseback riding and enjoyed a nice lunch. It was just enough time to reconnect with each other before I really started missing the kids!

Jason had his birthday in August. We are getting old enough that it is no longer fun to say what birthday it is haha! Anyway, we had a little party for him and I made him a campfire cake.

Here is Connor at 10 months!
