Thanksgiving 2011

This year it was all about the kids...


Photobucket


The hubs brought his tablet to Grandad's house, and when the kids got their hands on it, there was no stopping the Angry Birds fiends...


Photobucket


After eating more than we should, some of us went with the kids to the nearby school's playground,


Photobucket


where the adults mainly lounged around and talked,


Photobucket


while the kids had a blast.

Later that evening, ( after a Cowboys' win! ), we all got together again for leftovers, in the family room at Oldham Lane.

Now I can't wait for Christmas!

It's Pumpkin Time

About 3 weeks ago, we went by the Disability Resources Inc.'s Pumpkin Patch on a glorious fall day. Grandad was in the hospital then, or we would have tried to entice him to come along. :)

Of course, once we were there, and the little boy realised where we were, he was all about "Pumpkin Patch! Pumpkin Patch!" and running around...


Photobucket


I got him to pose for some "mandatory" poses with the scarecrow props


Photobucket


but we were soon whisked off on a hay ride around the grounds.


Photobucket


The tractor stopped for a little ol' lady whose house was adjacent to the grounds, who stopped by to do some trick or treatin' with the kids..


Photobucket


It was fun to see the glee in the little boy's face as he went around exploring the different types of pumpkins and trying to lift them up, and then turning to me and saying, "Mummy, it's too heavy....!"


Photobucket


Of course, I had to take pictures of my boys together..the hubs was very cooperative, but the little boy took a little more coaxing.. but I think I managed to get some really precious photographs of them.


Photobucket


I usually would much rather be behind the lens, but I can't have NO pictures of me with the boys, aye?


Photobucket


We stopped by the gift shop for a bit..


Photobucket


before picking up a little pumpkin for Jaxon


Photobucket


and heading on home.

Happy Birthday, Elizabeth.

I have a few posts that are taking longer than they should to be up here.....there's just a lot going on right now.

But anyway, here is one of them...


Photobucket


Elizabeth had her 11th birthday celebration last weekend. I looked back at some old blog posts, and gosh, has she grown. :) I was commenting to David that when I first got here, she was just barely 3!



Photobucket


As always, it is a delight to see all the little boys together....


Photobucket


especially when cake is involved :)

Halloween Part 2

Trunk or Treat!

The little boy got dressed up as a fireman again for Treat or Treating on Halloween evening over at the church parking lot.


Photobucket


We got there a little early, and already there was a short line forming ahead of us.

Jaxon's cousins joined in the fun as well....

Max and Jet, as well as Cason, were there as the 3 amigos, and they were quite the sight as well as the hit of the party.


Photobucket


Azmari was there as well, as DJ Lance from Yo Gabba Gabba. Yes, now that I am a mom and my daytime TV life revolves around Nick Jr., I am quite well aware of who DJ Lance is.


Photobucket


The little boy had already had a little practice, and so he was more than happy to go around to the church members, offering his "Trick or Treats" enthusiastically :)

Photobucket

Photobucket


By the time we got to the end of the line of cars, there was already a LONG LONG queue behind us.


Photobucket


We headed on into the church multipurpose hall, where carnival games had been set up.


Photobucket


We had some fun with a couple of the games,


Photobucket

Photobucket


but more than anything, the little boy just wanted to romp.


Photobucket


Afterwards, we dropped by Grandad's house much to the little boy's delight :)


Photobucket

I'm thinking that maybe next year the little boy might be old enough to tell me what HE would like to dress up as :)

Oh, and we are rationing out the little boy's candy.. so tightly, in fact, that the kid hasn't seen a single one of them since that night...and we are not about to remind him about them either. :P
