I hope it's okay that I am posting my flashback on Thursday instead of Friday. I have today off, so I had a little time to post. Since Halloween is a week from tomorrow, I thought it would be appropriate to flashback to Layne's first Halloween. She was only 10 months, so she didn't really get it. She couldn't figure out why so many kids were ringing her doorbell! This year she understands so much more, so we are looking forward to taking our little witch trick-or-treating!!! Of course, she will just be going to a few of our neighbors homes and maybe stopping by to see her cousins, but it will still be a lot of FUN!!!

My precious little peacock!

This is a picture of Layne and her good friend, Riley Haynes.

It's The Great Pumpkin...Charlie Brown!

Fall is such a special time of year for my family. It really kicks off the holiday season for us! We love creating memories as a family and starting traditions with Layne. So, last Sunday we were off to the pumpkin patch. Layne was so excited to get some "mumpkins". Before we left, she checked her Halloween Calender for a "kitty" which is her term for Kit-Kat. We then left for the patch and she had an amazing time amongst all the mumpkins! She even picked some of them out all by herself. We ended the day with icecream from Maggie Moo's...YUM!!! Hope everyone is enjoying their Fall! p.s.- I posted 3 times in one sitting...Mandy, have you ever done that??? Be sure to check out the other posts. This is all you will be getting for a while.

Fight For The Cure

Last Saturday, I took part in the Race For The Cure. Jerid, Kandace, and I got up really early and tackled a 5K which is not a lot, but it sure felt like it to me! Of course, Jerid ran the whole thing with our good friend Derek Elwood. I had to do some walking because I am in terrible shape, but I did run most of it. I think I slowed Kandace down because she is in much better shape than me (yes, the girl with three small kiddos and a husband who is on the road...A LOT!). It was a lot of fun and really neat to be involved in something so important. If you haven't ever taken part in this should really consider it! Here's a few of the before pics...

Game Days

One of my favorite things about Fall is FOOTBALL! We just can't seem to get enough of it. So, I thought I would share a few pics of our last game day get-together. It is so great having family so close, we always have such a wonderful time when we all get together.

Layne and her daddy waiting for the game to start.

Layne and C.J. spent most of game day playing in the puddles and riding bikes.

Poor Reece...he is always such a good sport!
