Happy Halloween



I just wanted to take a minute to post these pictures of my beautiful Tinker Bell and sweet little giraffe. I will update about the party and the rest of October soon.

more Halloween Party

We decorated pumpkins again. We did not get to this before Kylie and Ian had to leave. Next year we will try to do this first. They did a good job and are very proud of their creations.
Mrs. Allison brought a pinata. The kids loved it. It was very funny watching them try to hit it. Ty was the one who broke if for them. They all did a great jog waiting their turn and then picking up the candy. Good job Ty!!!
This was the set up Derrick did this year. I do not think I got a picture of it in the daylight. Hopefully Nana did. Thanks Derrick for making it all look good.

I did not get any pictures of the adults around the fire making s'mores. I was nice to sit by the fire and fellowship.

Thanks to everyone for coming to the party. We had a great time! Thanks Cody, Tara and Brandon for coming to help get ready and to Cody for helping take the tables back.

Halloween Party

We went to trick or treat at Mr. and Mrs. Tuckers. Hannah said Ty was her prince and Cooper was Kylie's prince. She is very into the princess thing.
Watching a movie outside. Hannah thought that was the neatest thing. Thanks Mrs. Sharon for bringing the projector.
The Miller's having fun in the corn. We were so happy they were able to come. Ian looks great. Please keep them in your prayers they are headed to Jacksonville soon for more treatment.
They all stopped long enough to eat, at least a little.
Fun in the corn. The turkey's will thank us in the morning.

dishwater punch

While we were at the beach we were talking about the Halloween party. Nene said she had done a party and told us about some of the Halloween things she made. I thought the punch would be fun and easy enough for me to make. Nene made the eyes and hands and sent them with my parents. I thought it was too cute and everyone seemed to like the punch. Thanks Nene for doing the hard part.

Happy Halloween

Hunter's first Halloween. He loves some pumpkins.
Look at these beautiful children. They make my heart so happy!!!

Halloween treats

This was my favorite thing that Hannah brought home from school. I love the class picture and of course she had her picture made with Ty. I am not sure what we are going to do when they have to go to different kindergartens?!?!
I love things the kids make that are with their hands and/or feet prints. Look at my buddies sweet little ghost foot. Thanks Sheri and Nana!
One of my students made this for me. It is so cute. I may have to make some of these for Hannah and Hunter's teachers next year.

pmpkin carving


I was so excited that we were going to carve pumpkins as a family. Hunter fell asleep, Hannah hated it, but Derrick did great work and I enjoyed watching. I did clean out a pumpkin so he could just carve it. Maybe next year Hannah will like it a little better and I am sure Hunter will be more into it then. I bought home some pumpkins from school that the other kindergarten teachers had carved. Derrick decided that he needed to do a little work on them. He is so creative. Thanks Derrick for carving more pumpkins. I know they will look great for the party tomorrow night.

Uncle Kyle is back

Uncle Kyle, Nana and Papa came back to TN today. Hannah was so excited. Every night since Uncle Kyle and Nana left to go to SC she has prayed, "Dear Jesus, please let Nana and Uncle Kyle come back tomorrow." I am glad it was finally tomorrow. Uncle Kyle is doing well. He is working on balancing and Hannah was helping him by throwing and catching the ball. He goes back to the doctor tomorrow. Keep up the good work Uncle Kyle!!

pumpkin carving at school

Today I went to the pumpkin patch with my class. It was raining and yucky but we still had a good time. When we returned Derrick came to school to carve our pumpkin. We graphed what kind of face we wanted it to have yesterday. Happy and scary tied. I had a little girl who guessed there were 500 seeds in the pumpkin. Since she was the closest she go to choose what type of face we should carve. Happy won. There were 522 seeds in the pumpkin, yes we counted them all. Thanks Derrick for coming to carve our pumpkin.

sweet girls

They played so well together. I wished we lived closer so they could play more.

Jack Daniels BBQ






We thought it would be fun to all go to the BBQ Festival. We had a good time, but there were not too many kind friendly things and it was very wet. I am glad the sun came out at the end of the day and Hannah was glad she got to see the cloggers. I am also glad that Hunter can sleep anywhere.

the ride to Jack Daniels

The girls watched a movie and Hunter slept. That meant the adults could talk.

lazy day


We spent today unpacking from the beach and getting ready for the Hayes' to come. Hannah did not want to get dressed since we were not going anywhere. She asked if she could just get some clothes on. I told her sure and this is what she decided to wear. She is too funny!

Derrick's pictures

Derrick took good pictures of the kids on the beach at sunset. He has not sent them to me yet. When he does I will post them.

ice cream


We were able to get good pictures of Hannah on the beach because we told her if she was good we would get ice cream. Since she did good we all got ice cream. She thought the little moose was cute.

feeding the seagulls




Hannah and Derrick went back down to the beach to feed the seagulls. I was surprised when I saw the pictures of her so close to the birds. Derrick said she had a great time feeding them. I am not a fan of birds and think they were way to close. Glad Hannah liked it and Derrick got some good pictures.

swimming pool

Hannah wanted to get in the pool all week. It was freezing on Sunday when we got here, but each day it has been a little warmer. Today was the warmest day and we leave tomorrow so she was able to get the pool and play for a while. She got in yesterday with Grandma Nene, but it was too cold to really enjoy. Hunter loved the pool. Thanks Dad for braving the cool, probably cold, water with the kiddos.

here we go





Derrick and I took both kids down to the beach this morning. Grandpa Mike and Grandma Nene had to leave today. We had fun on the beach but did not stay too long.















I was not very prepared to be on the beach with a baby this trip. Hunter took a little nap and Hannah played in the sand. My attempt to get a picture of them on the beach was not too good. Maybe I can talk Derrick into taking good pictures of them on the beach later today.

Hunter's first time on the beach

and he loved it!!!!

lots of airplanes

We took a little trip to the Airplane museum, as Hannah called it, this morning. Hannah liked looking at all of the planes and other things in the museum. Hunter had a great time sitting in the plane with Dad. Hannah liked flipping all of the switches and pushing all of the buttons in the planes.

breathing treatment


Hunter does pretty well with his breathing treatments. He does not have to have them on a schedule, but as needed.

Destin, FL






We have always gone to the beach in SC, so thought we would try somewhere new. We decided to try Destin, FL. Thanks to Mike and Nene for finding us a nice place to stay and for coming to spend time with us. It was really cold yesterday when we got here, but the weather is supposed to get better each day we are here. Derrick and I took Hannah down to the beach and Mike and Nene stayed in the house with Hunter. Hannah loved the beach!! Yeah, it has only taken three years for her to decide that she likes it. She played in the ocean and the sand and LOVED it!!!! The water and sand are beautiful. I love how clear the water is. I hope it will continue the warm up so we can spend more time on the beach.

bath time


Hunter loved playing in the water as it was running. Hannah did not want to miss out on the picture. They are too cute.
