Fall Festival Number 1

This year our church did trunk or treat again. Our trunk was decorated for "Where the wild things are" and we all wore our pajamas.

Luckily, Joel and I signed up for the first shift, so after we were finished working we got to take Landry around to enjoy the rest of the festival.

We checked out the petting zoo.

Can you tell how excited he was?

After we ate dinner, we went back over to our trunk to see our sweet friends!

This is the best you get when you try to get four busy boys together for a picture.

Baby Shower Fun

This morning I had the pleasure of co-hosting a baby shower brunch for my sweet friend Julie from church.

Julie is due in September, and my co-host Kristin is due in Nov. Both with baby girls!

We served breakfast food like cinnamon rolls, breakfast casserole, fruit skewers, and a yummy strawberry cake.

Julie had the shower at her house so she could shower off cute nursery.

As an activity we made bows and headbands for little Ms. Audrey to wear. It was lots of fun and we all got to bring out our creative sides.

Here are most of the finished headbands.

Then we opened gift. I will spare you those pictures, but she got some great stuff.

It was a great shower, and I'm so glad I could be apart of it. Can't wait to meet Ms. Audrey!

Christmas Parties Galore

This week I had not 1, not 2, but 3 Christmas parties to attend! Don't get me wrong I love Christmas, but that's a lot of time away from my baby in one week!

Monday we had our end of the year bunko party! I have been playing with a bunch of ladies from my mom's church the first Monday of every month. And this was our last one of the year.

We ate, played a round of bunko and then did a gift exchange. I came home with this adorable plate! So excited to leave cookies for Santa!

On Wednesday we had our ABF Christmas party. This year we decided to do cocktail attire. It was nice to see everyone all dressed up. We also catered food this year. We had a lovely evening with everyone. (I know some of you have been waiting for the pictures for awhile, sorry for the delay)

The girls from our small group

 I don't know if you can read the title of that book, but just in case you think you are going crazy... It really does say "The Worst Fart". I laughed so hard when I saw it! I can't believe anyone ever published it. You can read the whole thing here.

The girls

No party in our class is complete without an announcement! We are so excited for the Ogles!

Our final party was on Friday evening with my company. This year I was head of the social committee (and no, I'm not mean like Angela from the office! ha!). I had a lot of fun planning it with a few other people, but trying to please over 120 people and their spouses is not an easy job! I think everyone had fun though. Enjoy some pictures of the evening.

The Landry spent the night at my parents house so Joel and I wouldn't have to worry about picking him up at midnight! It was so nice to sleep till 8:30. That's sleeping in for us these days. I know someday he will be a teen and sleep all day, and this getting up at 7 is just a phase. So for now I am enjoying our happy morning baby! I'm a morning person anyway.

Fall Festival

Tonight was our annual Fall Festival at church. The past two years our class dressed as characters from the Wizard of Oz, but this year we were Crayons.

This time last year our class only had one baby. And now we have 8 and next week we will have 9! Four of them were there tonight.

We had a lion, a candy corn, a shark and a golfer! All so cute!

We also had lots of our class there!

Landry loved hanging out with Alicia. He just kept smiling at her, I think he's gonna be a big flirt!

Landry can't wait till he is big enough to run around with Pearson!

Daddy was getting lots of smiles!

Getting close to bed time for these little ones.

I had to change Landry out of his costume because it was too warm and it was too wet from drool.

We were so busy taking pictures at one point I looked around and Ray was the only one manning our booth. Glad someone was paying attention. 

On our way home I was talking to Joel and telling him I was amazed at how much has changed from last year. Last year it was just the two of us, and I was the only one who 'knew' Landry was on his way. When I say I 'knew', I didn't 'know' for sure, but I had a gut feeling.

So glad he is here now and we got to show him off! Wouldn't change it for anything!
