She's moving....

Cheyenne was over playing for a little bit and I noticed that Sarah really wanted to get over to her. I turned my camera on just in time to capture her first few strides crawling!!! All day she has moved a little bit at a time, I give her just a couple of days and we are in trouble!

Daddy's New Camera

Allan recently purchased a new Cannon 7D camera and a new lens, so of course he can't stop taking pictures. Here is a few he has taken:

Great Papa

Sunday we drove to go visit Allan's Papa, his dad's step father. Allan's grandfather passed away when Allan's dad was almost 10 years old. Papa has been a part of Allan's life as long as he can remember. Papa moved next to his son when Allan's grandmother passed away last two years ago. When Jimmy was a baby, Papa would hide money in his clothes. Several time we would go to change his diaper or put on his pj's and find money. I have put all of it in his piggy bank. This time Jimmy was super excited when we saw him because he got "big money"!;) It was really great to sit down and visit him.

Happy Halloween

Instead of going trick-or-treating we took the kids to another church halloween festival. (4th one this year!) Jimmy once again had a great time playing all the games and winning prizes. The good thing is he did not come home with a bunch of candy that we would eat!

Bad Trick-or-Treaters

Last night when we got home with the kids from their Halloween festivities we noticed a bunch of teenage trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood. I had not purchased any candy this year, because last year no one came. So we devised a plan....I pulled out last years candy and put it in a pumpkin bucket on the front porch with the lights on. Then put our camera in the window and waited to see what happened...

Those were the very first people to come by. Thanks a lot teenagers, we knew we would catch someone! Too bad that candy is a year old, they learned there lesson too!

Exercises with Sarah

Sarah has become an expert on yoga and other exercises lately and loves to show off her skills.

First you must stretch
Find plenty of space to lay down
Get in the push up position
And UP!
Do your push ups!
I know it's tough let's do some more
More Push Ups!

Sweet Brother and Sister

Sarah is finally at the stage where I can set her down and she and Jimmy can somewhat play together. It is so cute to watch them pass toys back and forth and laugh. Sarah really enjoys watching Jimmy run around and laughs at him constantly. Jimmy is still very protective of Sarah, but he loves on her all the time.

Yes there are always toys all over my house, no matter how many times I clean them up!

Covenant Christian's Fall Festival

Last night we headed over to Covenant Christian school to their fall festival. Jimmy has had so much fun this fall, he will have gone to a total of four festivals after tonight. He calls them all parties, and now asks every morning if we are going to a party. :) Lacy is the art teacher at the school so both kids were excited to see her.

Jimmy got tired of wearing his hot monkey costume,
so luckily he had a halloween shirt under it!

Halloween Toddler Skate

Jimmy was so excited to go to toddler skate yesterday and dress up for their costume contest. All of the kids were winners!

Stop, Drop, and Roll

Our play group was able to visit a brand new local fire station Wednesday morning. Jimmy was in heaven climbing all over the four fire trucks. He loved pretending to drive the "big red trucks." One of the firemen put on his whole uniform to show the kids what he looked like, Jimmy started to get scared and ran to hide. I went and picked him up, and explained that if you saw a fireman in his uniform to give him a hug. That way he would not hide in our house if there was a problem. Jimmy ran right away and gave him a big hug!
