'Mon Gran let's ride!

This teeter-totter is at the grocery store in Columbia. Thomas always "eyes" it when we go to the store! We let him ride it Sunday with Gran. This was too funny! He thought it was too cool!

First Haircut!

After the Parade on Saturday (Nov. 8th), Thomas got his first haircut! What a disaster! He starting screaming before Kris even started. She did such a good job! All those baby curls are gone. He looks like such a big boy now!

The Peanut Festival Parade

Saturday mama, Chuck, Thomas and I went to the Peanut Festival Parade. Thomas loved getting to see all the tractors, floats, and bands. He thought it was all pretty neat. The coolest of all was when a friend of mine that is a Marine Fighter Pilot flew over the parade in an F/A 18 fighter jet. That was one of the coolest things I have ever experienced. I tried so hard to get it on video but they were on us so fast I think I only got the sound of the jets. That was the highlight of the parade! Thanks Jason!

The National Peanut Festival

We took Thomas to the fair last weekend in Dothan. I wanted to take him last year but it just didn't work out. The fair is so special to me and I have many childhood memories. It is such a BIG DEAL at home. Of course the only night that it rained was the night that we had planned to go and the only night we could go. We went anyway and it actually turned out to be pretty good. We didn't ride any rides because it was so wet but he did get to ride a pony. I thought for sure he would be scared to death but he loved it.

Do I need a haircut or what?

This is the way that Thomas looks when he gets up from a nap. His hair is a HOT MESS!!! I think its about time for a haircut.

Halloween Party at Aunt Donna and Uncle Rick's house!

The Saturday night after Halloween, Aunt Donna and Uncle Rick had a Halloween party at their house for the kids. They had this pool of corn just for Thomas! He had had so much fun playing in it at the pumpkin patch that Aunt Donna and Uncle Rick decided to have it at their party. As soon as I put Thomas in it he layed down in it and acted like he was swimming. He had a blast. Everyone wore costumes, we had a hayride and some games for the kids. We had soo much fun and can't wait until next year!

Trick or Treat!

We went on a hayride trick-or-treating with one of my friends on Halloween night. Thomas had a blast! He caught onto the whole trick-or-treating bit after the first house. He would grab his pumpkin and take off to the door. Soo cute! His GG even got to ride around town with us. It was a little cold but he kept her warm!

Halloween with my Girlfriend!

The cheerleader and the duck got to do some trunk-or-treating the Wednesday before Halloween! They have this every year at Arden's church. Last year the kids were soo little. It is amazing how much they grow in a year!

Halloween at Kindermusik

The week of Halloween the kids wore their costumes to kindermusik. They were all soo cute! We had such a hard time keeping them all seated for a group picture. Think it turned out pretty cute though!

Little Duck!

Thomas was a duck this Halloween! He was the cutest duck that I have ever seen. I couldn't resist trying to get some pictures of him in his costume. The pumpkin he is holding is one of mine when I was a little girl and my mama has a picture of me holding it and looking at it just like he is doing in the picture. Pretty neat!

Pratt Park!

Thomas and I took a trip to the Park in Prattville after his 18 month check-up with Dr. Diebel. He had a blast. This was the first time he had gotten to play on a playground like this. He loved it. He wanted to climb on everything. Think we'll be going again REAL soon!

Coming SOON!!

Once again I have gotten behind on my blogging. This time it isn't totally my fault. My little munchkin decided to work on the USB cord to the camera, so therefore I can't download any pictures. We have a card reader, so as soon as I "locate" it I will update the blog. Check back soon for the new updates!
