Mason's First Birthday Party!!

We threw a birthday party for Mason with our close friends and family.  It was a blast planning the food and decorations and I learned a lot!! It's also so nice to have a house to have a party in! Yippee!

Pumpkin Patch with Hudson

A couple of weeks ago, I had Hudson come over all by himself to play with us!! We went to the local pumpkin patch that had a cute petting zoo and of course had an awesome spider (one of Hudson's favorite things!).  We had a great time and also played at home and at yummy snacks.  It was so fun to have him come over!!

Pumpkin Patch

On Saturday (10/20) we decided to go on a family outing to the pumpkin patch.  The weather was perfect and its finally starting to feel like fall!  Terrill took mason down the big slide they had and I think he had more fun then Mason did, but isn't that what being a parent is all about sometimes??  We picked a pumpkin took some fun pictures then went to Mountain Mikes for pizza.  It was a very fun time!

Halloween Cookie Decorating with Amy and Sister!!

Last year on Halloween I was super huge and pregnant so my middle school bestie Amy, came over to decorate cookies with me and lift my spirits!! We decided to make a tradition of it.  She just had a BEAUTIFUL baby about 2 1/2 months ago and she came over to decorate cookies with us.  My sister and 2 of her kids also joined us.  It was a blast and I am sure Amy was wiped out by it but it made my day to see her and Hazel!  

Beautiful baby!!

So sleepy :)

I think Hudson had the most fun being able to eat the frosting

Can you tell which one is Hudsons??

Mason 11 Months

I can't believe he is 11 months and will soon be one.  So I tried to take some pictures of Mason holding an '11 month' sign.  Needless to say, I was pretty unsuccessful.  Here are some pics of my little man and some of his favorite things!

Things he loves..... vacuuming with mommy

Garden Harvest - September 7, 2012

It may seem small, but a couple of days ago I made deli sandwiches for us and went out to garden and picked some fresh lettuce and basil to put in the sandwiches.  It was heavenly and it made it ten times more fun because it was from OUR garden!!!

Painting the Dining Room - Before & After - September 3, 2012

We painted our dining room, it went pretty fast and Terrill and I enjoyed doing it together!
