Mama, Don't let Your Sons Grow up to be Cowboys

Howdy y'all, and happy Halloween! We had a lot of fun carving our pumpkins with the girls Nikki babysits and are enjoying the roasted seeds! As you can see we also had a great time dressing the boys up as cowboys - they had fun too! They went trick-or-treating with Zoe and got more than enough candy for their little teeth...

Happy 28th Birthday Chris!



Above and below are recent pictures. Above: Clayton is now wanting to be my helper, so he recently helped me bake cookies, he loved the measuring spoon and has also become quite the ham. He loves to say "chee". This past weekend we went to Durango with our friends Zach and Laura and their girls Zoe and Marley to see the fall colors and celebrate Chris' birthday. We also went to a train museum with the boys and to a pumpkin patch.

The boys continue to grow and change. Clayton has so many words and is so funny. He wants to do EVERYTHING that Garrett does - not always a good thing. Garrett is potty-training and is pretty proud of the fact that big boys wear underwear. He is still enamored by Clayton and it's so much fun to see the close bond of brotherhood and friendship developing.

Below: We celebrated Chris' birthday over the course of 3 weeks, I bought him a bike, but if you know Chris well you know that our bank account is viewed daily, read I keep no secrets, so he got to enjoy his bike early - and so did the boys. Also, Garrett got a "cooter" and amazing of all amazing moments - if you know Garrett you know why we were so shocked - our shy little boy got on the stage in front of our whole church and sang "Jesus Loves Me".
