Happy Halloween

The boys have had a fun few days! On Wednesday night we went to Boo at the Zoo where they collected candy, saw a magic show, went through a maze and enjoyed the lights. Scott had a fall party at school where he picked a pumpkin from the "patch" and had a yummy snack. This morning Scott had his final soccer game of the season. He played hard and had a great time! It has been amazing to watch him this season as he went from timid and not so sure about this soccer stuff to getting out there, running hard and having a lot of fun. He got his very first trophy and he was so proud! :) The boys participated in the good ole fashion trick or treating tonight and collected lots of yummy candy. My cousin Amanda was here to join in the fun, too. They have loved having her here! Here are some pictures of my Clemson baseball player, Superman and the drooling Pumpkin. There will also be a couple pictures of Scott receiving his trophy.

Fall and the fair

Wow, I can't believe how much I've been updating our blog lately!! I'm usually not this good with it but I guess we've just had a lot of fun things going on lately so it makes it fun to share pictures. I took some cute pics of the boys on the front porch and then yesterday we took a trip to the fair. It was very cold at first but we were bundled up. The boys only rode 2 rides and enjoyed a neat magic show. Of course we ate corn dogs, donuts and cotton candy!! Yummy! Here are a few pics:

Scott is 4 years old

Scott turned 4 years old on Saturday! Wow, it's hard to believe he is already 4. It seems like yesterday I was pregnant with him and that he was just born. As I think back to that pregnancy and the day he was born, it was all so up in the air. He tricked us several times into thinking he was coming and finally arrived at 36 weeks 5 days at a whopping 5lbs 15oz. He was a firecracker then with that little bit of red hair gleaming and he still is a ball of fun with some strong will thrown in there! His unpredictable personality keeps life interesting. We never really know what's going through that little head of his. He will impress us sometimes with some very smart insights and other times he will say something to make us roll with laughter. He loves super heroes, cars, trucks, balls, and well just about anything boy!! He can act shy or be the life of the party. Scott is sandwiched in between 2 brothers that he adores and he fits the role of a middle child quite well! We love our little red head and had a blast celebrating 4 years with him on Saturday. He had a pirate theme party at a local park. It was a lot of fun and the weather was perfect! The children went on a treasure hunt and went digging for "gold". Here are a few pictures to share.

Greyson is 5 months old!

Greyson is 5 months old today! He is such a happy baby and is growing like a weed! Greyson loves playing on the floor and rolling around. He loves his big brothers and was so cute laughing at Tyler tonight. He was giggling at Tyler acting silly. He loves to laugh and smile at Scott, too. The boys get in his face quite often but do not like it when Greyson grabs at their hair or face! :) Greyson's most favorite thing in the world are his toes!! He loves to eat them and will even fall asleep with them in the air after eating them and then drifting off to sleep. It's so cute! Here are some recent pictures.
