October 28

She melts me.
We have been able to enjoy the weather outside, and we LOVE it!  I snapped this of Addison before I chased a 3 year old around the yard =)

October 27

Camp babies.
We were hanging out while waiting for Garet's sister and her family.

October 26

 Dino driving the jeep.
It was COLD the first day at camp!  We had fun, especially when it got a bit warmer!

Marine baby.
Today we loaded up and headed to camp with Garet!

October 24

Love her.
Addison and I had fun hanging out while Colin was at school this morning. 
I took more pictures that I posted on my other blog.  =)

October 23

So them.
I love this.  Colin wants to be right next to Addison.  All. The. Time.  So, when I went to take her picture... he got in it as well.  But in every picture he kept squinting his eyes.  And she was just smiling and laughing so big.  Then he told me it was too bright.  And he did this.  And she stopped smiling.  Ha! 
I have to document also that today would have been one of our angel baby's 1st birthday.  It hit me harder than I thought it would.  But looking at these two blessings we have.  And having the most awesome husband (who brought me flowers today!)  And hearing about the birth of a friend's new baby.  It makes it easier to celebrate all the wonderful things that God has done!

October 22

So, I tried to do a craft... it did NOT turn out pretty.  I was trying to do this that I saw on Pinterest.  I wanted Colin to paint the canvas to put over our fireplace.  I think I tried to use too many colors... and Colin likes to just mix everything together.  It ended up looking like gray mud.  Not cute.  So I just told him to put his hands in it and just have fun.  So he did =)  That part ended up great.  The canvas?  Notsomuch.

October 21

Baby blues.
My sweet girl! 
This afternoon we all went outside... Garet, Colin, and I raked, then Colin got to jump in, kick, throw, bury himself and roll around in all the leaves.  It was awesome!

October 20

We all gathered around the firepit for s'mores tonight!  This was Colin's first time holding anything over the fire as well as his first s'more!  He loved it (of course!)  And surprisingly kept pretty clean =)

October 19

They are a tad bit big! 
Papaw came to visit... and rode his dune buggy!  Which Colin loves!  Before bed tonight, he tried on these boots and was so proud to scoot around in them!

October 18

In the line up.
Colin lines up everything... but especially his cars!  He spends sooooo much time playing with them.  Most of the time they are lined up to go to the "grocery store".  Seems that might be the only store we go to....
Anyway, today was a first.  I was part of the line up.  I had to stand with my feet together, and facing forward.  Lucky for me, this line was moving fast!  =)

October 17

I got a smile!  Woo hoo!
Colin was racing his cars down the slide.  Love this precious little guy!

October 16

Baby toes.
After bath tonight, I snapped a quick picture (I almost forgot one today!  Whoa.)  She stuck her foot right in the way before I took it =)

October 15

Bouncing baby.
I brought this jumper thing out today.  Addison enjoyed it while I made dinner.  And Colin brought her some cars.  They were "watching Ah-ison"  =)  He loves her so much! 

October 14

Thanks daddy.
Tonight after dinner, Garet brought out these big cookies he got.  So good!  This is Colin trying to eat the cookie and smile for a picture!

October 13

Hanging out.
Today, Garet and I buckled down and almost finished painting our living room!  I still have to do the trim on the windows and paint the door... but we finished all the brick and paneling!  It took ALLLLL day!  We traded off: painting and watching the kids.  The fumes were so bad in the living room we didn't want the kids to smell it all day.  So tonight I was on Addison before bed and we got some good girl chat in =)

Fireman and Sully.
We had our friends over tonight with their kids.  A neighbor has a huge annual Halloween party, so we all went over there.  It was fun and there were tons of people, all dressed up!

October 11

Little horse.

I took the kids to a toddler Halloween party that my friend threw today.  Colin was a fireman (his choice) and Addison was this cute little horse =)  We had a great time!

Love this life.
The cars... the boy with the train in the coffee table... the baby on her floor mat... the half painted living room... love it all.

October 5

Loving it.
I got the sprinkler going this afternoon and Colin rode his Jeep through it.  As you can see, he LOVED it!  He would come "park" next to me and say, "I'm home from work!"  I would ask him, "Did you have a good day?"  and he would say, "No... I hit a little bit of traffic."  hahaha
I love him so much!  He also kept telling me that he was driving in a thunder storm and that's why he was wet.

October 4

Suzi and her ball.
Love this pup.

Silly little lady.
Addison and I had some fun during nap time today =)

Hey snake.
We had a busy morning today: got new shoes, went to the pet store to say "hey" to the fish and snakes, stopped by the bookstore, rode in the Jeep... good times!

October 1

First food.
Addison joined us for breakfast this morning!  I think she liked it =)

September 30

My view.
When Garet got home from work this afternoon, we went on a long family walk.  The weather is amazing!

September 29

Sweet friends.
Today was another eventful day... Garet was doing yardwork and got stung by a bee.  He is very allergic, so we ended up spending a few hours at the ER.  Then we got home just in time to change and head to dinner!  Crazy.  Colin had fun playing with Abby that night though!

September 28

Having fun.
We had a busy day... we went to Winston Salem and had lunch.  Then after naps, we went to a neighborhood picnic!  It was a lot of fun!

September 27

So happy.
The kids and I drove home today... and Colin had another birthday present waiting for him!  It is a Jeep!  He LOVES it!
