We had an absolute blast this weekend taking part in our first trick-or-treat with Shayden (my first one as well I should admit). He and his cousin Eli took to the streets with a fury and were not in the least shy about approaching whomever might have candy/pumpkins/anything that would light up or was an animal. It was a complete riot and we were in shock as to how well they did. I still have a smile on my face and cannot wait to do it again. Enjoy the pics!

Fall Fun on the Farm

My Aunt Rose and Uncle Jim started years ago (30 to be exact) a great tradition that welcomed family and friends out to their Christmas Tree farm to celebrate fall. Not only is the scenery beautiful but we get to see all our family while enjoying hay rides, wonderful food and of course the infamous homeade donuts that always end the day. This year was Shayden's 1st and he absolutely loved it. Thanks A. Rose and U. Jim for the great day!

Pumpkin Time

Shayden and Daddy had a great time this past Thursday night while Mommy was away...Chris decided it was time for he and Shayden to carve their first pumpkin together and by the looks of things it was a huge hit. Now so that I can get in on the action I have forced Chris to take us to the real pumpkin patch this weekend - woohoo!

Chris' handiwork

Here is a little video to enjoy...hint hint he is saying "Hello" into the pumpkin.

1st Birthday

Shayden's 1st Birthday:

This past week we celebrated Shayden's 1st Birthday...absolutely unbelievable that we have hit this milestone. I knew it was coming but I just couldn't grasp that he was going to be a whole year old, it rocked my world. We had a gorgeous fall day to celebrate and all Shayden's biggest fans (the fam) came out to celebrate with us.

Shayden shared his big day with his Great Grandma Lilian who turned 90!

He had no problem digging into his cake and going to town...that is once he figured out cake was inside that icing circle.
Shayden, your father and I love you so much! We feel so blessed that God has allowed you to join our lives and we are excited each day to see how you grow and develop. My heart melts each time you smile and when you give me hugs...its indescribable. Thank you for being a boy and getting into all of my things and carrying them around the house - I am sure I will find them someday and smile! You are a true pleasure and I am so thankful to be your Mom.
Love you, Mommy
