You are what you eat!

Happy Halloween!

We hope your Halloween was filled with fun, candy, and cute little ones bringing a smile to your face. Our Halloween was a little uneventful - Jackson wasn't feeling well most of the day and managed to nap right through trick or treating hours.

However, we did get to answer the door to the trick or treaters in our new neighborhood. It was great to meet people in the neighborhood.

At then end of the night, Aunt Shel said it just wasn't right that Jackson did not get to trick or treat at all...she insisted we get his costume on and head out trick or treating. We made it to one house and Jackson was overwhelmed. I'm not sure if Jackson wasn't feeling well or if he just isn't a fan of trick or treating...either way- we returned home shortly.

This year we stuck with the motto: "You are what you eat"...and we all know Jackson LOVES Oreos!

Enjoy the photos!

Not sure he was "loving it".

"Operation Big Boy Room" has begun!

Jackson wanted to help paint the Bead Board!

A few weeks ago, when I was knee deep in paint samples - trying to find the perfect shade of aqua to match Jackson's Cat-in-the Hat bedding - Justin mentioned to me that he wanted to put bead board and chair rail in Jackson's room.

Those of you are know us well may remember when Justin signed on to do this in Jackson's nursery. I was skeptical then only because I know my husband is many of great things - but handy with tools isn't one of them. However, with a little help from my Dad, my Uncle Tom, and Justin's Dad (who is always willing to help Justin with his random projects) Jackson's nursery turned out better than I had hoped. So, this time I have no reservations about Jackson's room. Uncle Tom and Pop (Justin's Dad) are already "on call."

I'm excited to see the end product. And Jackson can't quit talking about his TV that is going on the wall. So fun to see everything coming together.

We close on the home tomorrow. So let the decorating begin!

5 Little Pumpkins!

Jackson has learned the Halloween nursery rhyme "5 Little Pumpkins"...and he recites it to anyone who is willing to listen! So maybe he misses a few lines - but its still cute!

Oh - and I might or might not have been driving while filming this! :)

"Pumpkin, Where Are You?"

After a couple days of Justin traveling for work, we took advantage of the gorgeous weather and headed for the Pumpkin Patch.

Jackson was so excited to "find" his pumpkin. I think he got caught up on the word "find." As soon as we got off the hay ride to the actual pumpkin patch, Jackson started shouting, "Pumpkin - where are you?" However, it must have worked - because we found the perfect pumpkin.

Fall is my favorite time of year and I look forward to this outing each year. It was a great day with my two favorite guys!

Enjoy some video and photos...

Our wake up call!

I just had to share this photo.

This is how Jackson wakes us up each morning. He brings us everything he has in his room. Sometimes I think he would bring me the sheets off his bed if he could. Justin and I can hear him struggling to carry it all as he walks down the hall, but he always makes it eventually. Occasionally, we hear "Too Heavy" as he juggles it all and talks to himself. He usually joins us for snuggle time and some cartoons - though he is starting to become a Today Show fan (just like his Mommy)!

I love starting my morning like this!

There is a new Sheriff in town!

A big thanks to Mama Penny for Jackson's new Woody "PJs."

He couldn't wait to put them on!

You've got a friend in me!

Love the Grin!

Love looking through old photos!

Found these old photos tonight while looking for a different photo. It made me stop in my tracks - what happened to that baby? Some how he is walking and talking and counting to 20!

Tonight, Jackson even ordered his own dinner: Chips, Salsa, and Tator Tots....ummm...perhaps I through in some meat and fruit. :)

Take me out to the Ball Game!

A few weeks ago Justin and our good friend Jason Paul took part in their Alumni game for the Hockett Baseball team that they played on years ago. It was fun to see these two pretend to be young again...Justin even took some advil before they got started. :) Its tough to be 30!

Jackson loved watching his Daddy "hit the baseball" and even brought along his bat and ball to show off his skills as well. But the highlight for Jackson was when Justin invited him on the field to run the bases! It just doesn't get better than that!

Enjoy the photos and video...
