Weekend Fun!

We were party hoppin' this weekend. Every night and each morning and afternoon were filled with lots of Halloween fun. Thank goodness tomorrow marks a new month and hopefully a little slower pace. It has been great though and the girls are especially into Halloween this year, well how could they not be? Court's favorite thing about Halloween is driving around after bedtime checking out all of the neighborhood decorations... the scarier the better for this little guy. This was the girls favorite thing to do at his age so we have had a few nights where we have waited until it got dark then drove around looking for ghosts & goblins, scary monsters, glowing pumpkins and spooky spiders. A big hit!

Halloween Party Circuit

This may be the most candy-filled week of the year... the week before October 31 where our days are packed with fun Halloween festivities. Before the big day we will actually attend 10 Halloween parties with only one of those being adults only! Kids are already starting to ask for candy corn for breakfast and Mom's energy is running low. Good thing we have plenty of sugar on hand to keep me going!

Pumpkin Pickin'

We did our annual trip to the pumpkin patch this past weekend. We look forward to this family time every year. We picked a beautiful day and everyone had a great time looking at the animals, riding on the tractors and of course picking pumpkins!

On the Riverbend bus!

Court obsessed with driving the tractor!

Feeding the chickens.

Giddy up!

Sweet Tyler

Court spotted a "twuuck" actually a tractor but he was thrilled!

Happy Harper on the hay ride!

Attempt at a family photo...

He has learned how to stand his ground with them.

Our life is full of outtakes.

Another fun year!

An eventful 24 hours!

Our little rockstar Court had a very eventful 24 hour span...

1st Panthers Game!
Daddy had an extra ticket to the Panther game so Court got to tag along with Dad and his clients. Sat through the whole game and had a blast! The game was from 1-4, aka nap time for our little mister but he rallied through. Girls were just a tad jealous...

Guess he cheered so much he sacked out on the way home.
Then he slept for most of Liza's birthday party.
He woke up just in time to eat a cupcake- of course!
First non-crib nap in a long, long time!!!

Ear tube surgery #2!
The Courtster had a very early morning appointment the next day. He also had his adenoids removed since they were enlarged ~ and fingers crossed this helps his growth a bit. What a trooper. No food or drink after midnight and he was just as happy as could be holding onto his trains and entertaining all the nurses while Mommy & Daddy snuggled with him.

Surgery went well and is already back to his old self! We are hoping this is our last time in the operating room for quite a while!

This is from ear tube surgery #1... he was a chunky monkey back then!

God Bless Banks

Our niece and Tyler, Harper & Court's cousin was baptized over the weekend. Sweet, precious laid-back Banks did wonderful and looked so beautiful. The girls were front & center singing Jesus Loves Me during the service and were so excited to see her shine during her moment in front of the church.
