Happy Halloween!!!!

Boy, it sure has been a busy day. It is closing in on 11 pm and I am just now starting to relax from it. Walker had a Jamboree at school today, they had a pumpkin patch, carnival games, crafts, candy, and a picnic lunch. I signed Carter and myself up to work. I was in charge of the craft room (they made fall picture frames) and Carter help the kids from station to station doing fun things and playing. We all at lunch together. I forgot my camera. I couldn't even believe it.

After school Truman fell asleep on the way home. He ended up taking a much needed Halloween 3 hour nap. WooHoo. I forced Walker to nap as well and he obliged. I think the morning was enough for him and he was dozing an hour after we got home. After he woke up, we got their costumes ready, carved a pumpkin, and got Truman up. They got dressed and we went outside and took pictures. For 2 excited boys they did good with the pictures. I am happy with what I got...for the first time in 3 years.

We went to Mema's house first. They had a great time shooting their new gun that they had gotten early this morning and Mema got them some really cool trick or treat bags.

Next up we stopped by Gigi's. She was dressed up with a clown wig. They boys got some candy and we were off to Mimi and Pappy's house.

We ate dinner over there and then Mimi helped me take the boys out since Carter had to work tonight. I was very impressed with how much they loved trick-or-treating. They had such a good time. Walker knew he was supposed to ring the doorbell and would announce, "frick or freet". Truman surprised me with saying "thank you" or something close to it a number or times. We ended up going house to house for almost 2 hours.

Walker Funny

I am going to try and retell this as verbatum as possible. I am glad I wasn't eating because I think I would have choked. We were leaving Shoe Carnival and all the sudden from the backseat Walker started up...

"Dear Dod, Sanks go much for Big B's Halloween Party. Daddy was Superman, Mommy was a Towboy, Pappy was a towboy, mimi was a Titty. Sank you for all my friends, sank you for food. Sank you Jeedus. Thank you friends. Dod our Father"

I asked him where he learned to pray like that. It was quite loud and over the top, much like a Charismatic preacher. LOL. Atleast he is learning to pray.

"At Stool"


Liz has tagged me...I must oblige

1. I was nervous, almost sick to my stomach nervous to be dropped off at school everyday until I was driving myself. I wasn't however nervous, if I drove myself, or if I rode my bicycle (in elementary school).

2. When I was little, I wanted to be an actress when I grew up.

3. I went home from school one day in Middle School because I had the "shakes"

4. I never liked New Kids on the Block and...I thought they were all ugly.

5. I would have never thought to start a photography business on my own, a friend liked my pictures and said she would pay me to take pictures. Now I can't believe how much fun I am having.

6. I hit my sister behind the ear with a dart when she was little. I was throwing them at a tree and told her not to come out from behind it. She didn't listen.

7. When I was in high school, my friends and I were completely obsessed with baby names, I might have even come up with hundreds during that time.

ok, I am going to tag...

Halloween Party Fun

We went to Aunt B and Uncle Jeff's house tonight for a fun family and it seems annual Halloween party. We all had to dress up. It was so much fun. I was a cowgirl, Carter was Superman, Walker was Batman and Truman was Robin. They boys had a great time. They got some Halloween prizes and had so much fun running all around.

Ashley Adams is in desperate need of prayers

Sweet Ashley is having a bad case of rejection. Please keep her in your prayers. She has been doing really well lately and this isn't good.

So Naughty

I am so bad. I haven't really updated here in a while and I have had lots to post, but I just can't seem to get it together. I have forgotten now to update any books or calendars with cute info about my boys, and this blog was supposed to replace that and I can't seem to manage to get the cute stories that happen on a daily basis typed here. I am going to be more conscientious about that in the future...I think. I have several busy weeks coming up with atleast 3 photo shoots booked this month already. Yay for fall weather. We also have to make atleast on trip to the pumpkin patch as well.

Last Friday, we went to Mountain Fork Farm. It was awesome. I have had a problem with uploading the pictures to photobucket, so I will have to post them later, but needless to say the boys had one of the best times of their lives. They got to see cows, horses, turkeys, chicks, pigs, chickens...and collect their eggs in the hen house. They chased a calf, ran a muck, road in a mule and just got to be boys.

I can't believe how grown up they are getting. Truman still follows me around saying "mama" constantly, but now he calls all women mama and all males 'dada', even Walker. I find it strange, though, that he can identify Diego and Dora and call them both by name, and he only saw Dora for the first time 2 days ago. He loves to say "duck, quack, quack" and talk to the dogs. He is getting to be so independent and hates to hold my hand. He wants to do everything his big brother does. He seems to be an all day grazer. This child can put away some food. He weighs almost 25 lbs and is getting to be so tall. I hate that he is not going to be able to wear some of Walker's cute outfits that he wore at this age. He likes to close doors, but has no idea how to open them. He shuts himself in his room multiple times a day. He is about to cut teeth #s 15 and 16. The other day he went back to play in the back of the house while we were in the den. He came running out so fast and said repeatedly, "uh oh" I followed him back to Walker's room. He had turn his fan on and it was load and didn't know how to turn it off. He is also our little prayer. As soon as my bottom hits the chair at the table, he puts his hands together and says, "God", that is my cue to start the prayer and he is always quite pleased with himself while he eats and we say the blessing. He is constantly bringing me books to read to him, too.
Last weekend we went to Birmingham to the Botanical Gardens. Here are a few pictures.
Walker amuses us everyday, he can also be quite exasperating. He is obsessed with going to toy stores and getting toys. He is fine with not getting one and never pitches a fit, but if you ask him where he wants to go, he almost always answers the toy store. He has become very polite to us lately. He is sick this week and yesterday I asked him if he wanted his medicine and he said, "No Thanks". When he saw it was Tylenol, he willing took it. Last week we went to see my aunt at the office. Walker was talking about needing a toy and I told him we weren't going to the toy store. Well, Big B got in the money drawer and gave them each 2 dollars to go to the dollar store. Well, we got back in the car and I didn't really want to drive back across town, I suggested we go down the street to the library and that we could go to the dollar store in the morning. Walker's response was to tell me that we "have plenty of books at home, mom". Well, he told me. Off to the dollar store we went and he got a new sword and bow and arrow set. We headed back across town to go to church and I told him that he couldn't bring his toys in. He told me to drive he could have longer to play before we got there. He is a tricky little dude.

Here are some shots of him from the garden.
