WOW!! So, while most of you are posting about THIS halloween and I probably will later, I was reminded this morning that 3 years ago around this time, Ryan and I had our first "date" not real date. We basically were dressing as similar things for a friend's halloween party and at the last minute, I boldly just told him to come pick me up! HA! We all knew it ... he liked me, I liked him ... you know how that goes! For some reason, I can't find the picture of us together on the motorcycle put you get the point! It was a hit ... we rode on our friend Chauncey's Harley ... so fun!
That was such a fun night! Oh how we miss those friends and oh how times have changed!! Love you guys!!!

Me with my roommate, Melissa and Penni

After his daddy left for a night with the men, he ate his dinner and then did this until bedtime! Why is he so stinkin' cute!? I was trying to be discreet with the camera hence the funky angle.

More lately ...

We are loving working with the students at our church!

More fun at the farm with the youth

sweet boy in his hand me down outfit! LOVE IT!

Here are a few of the things we've been up to lately (minus the stomach bug mom had this past Sunday-thank you, Lord for being at Bebe and pop's)! You are a life saver, Bebe!

Here We GO!!!

I just had to post this real quick before Truett decides to take off! This is his first real time with full reign on the floor in the den. Not only are we finally getting our FIRST TWO TEETH on the bottom, but we've decided to scoot over to the exersaucer and teeth on it! Ready or not, here we go!!

Mid-Term Time

I never really thought I would ever go back to school, but I've enjoyed A&P doing ok for a stay-at-home mom with a temporary part time job. (little side note: I am officially the part-time interim youth director for our church. CRAZY but so EXCITING!!!) I had my mid-term last Wednesday morning in Kosciusko. So, my sweet husband got his mom to come stay with us Tuesday night to keep Truett while I was gone. What a blessing it was to have here and not have to worry about coordinating someone to keep him on top of everything else!
Thanks so much, Bebe for all your help!! Truett absolutely loved having her here!
Of course, my Carson girls came to the rescue too! Kayla came and got Tru Monday afternoon so I could have almost a whole day of studying! Thanks, sweet girls!

Truett and his Kayla ... can you tell he loves her!?

Just In Time

We are finally about to get one of our biggest projects started and hopefully over with! THE BACK PORCH!!! Just in time for this cool weather, we'll be able to sit out and enjoy in a few weeks! Ryan demoed the addition in about 2 hours last weekend while Truett and I watched ... Truett enjoying his new swing from Pops!
It's amazing how something such as a room can come down so easily. BUT when it looks like junk, it kind of makes sense! After getting down to the frame, boy are we glad we're doing this even more! Talk about gross! The wood ants have had a hay day out there!

sweet boy loving his swing

don't you love the barn in the back yard ... lovely

thank you, Lord for a happy little man!

NOT a passy man but loves chewing on the thing and it's just too cute
