Halloween Fun

This past weekend we had great fun at a costume party hosted by the Ashcrafts! There were like over 30 people there and LOTS of babies. It was so much fun! Nathan had a blast playing with all his friends. He was so busy playing with all his friends, I often lost track of him. haha It was highly encouraged that the parents dressed up as well as the kiddos, so we succumbed to the pressure and came up with a family "theme". Nathan was a ninja fighter who got really upset at his mommy for trying to make him take a nap so he broke out his chinese stars and attacked. Fortunately Dr. Daddy came to the rescue and helped bandage mommy up.

Here are some more pictures from the fun event:

New favorite thing

Nathan's new favorite thing to do is push anything and everything around. He pushes the chairs in the dining room, toys, books, paper, high chair, etc. Here's a little video of him pushing his high chair.

Vegas Baby


Sorry it's been so long since I have last updated our blog. Jake and I went on a little get-away to Vegas last week.....without our better half (Nathan). We let Nathan spend a few days with his grandparents in Dallas. It was hard to be without Nathan for a few days, but Jake and I had a great time. We met up with our friends Cliff and Leslie and saw a great show (Mystere), ate some great food and actually won a little money. :-) I was proud of myself, I only cried once while we were in Vegas and I limited my phone calls to my mom to just one a day. Nathan seemed to do great being without his parents for a few days. He stayed on his schedule and didn't fuss too much. I will say that I was more emotional when we saw him again than I thought I would be. I just could not get enough of cuddling with him....even though he had enough pretty quickly. haha I love that he's growing up and discovering new things, but I do miss the little baby that would cuddle with me all the time. :-) The only cuddle time I get now is when I give him his bedtime bottle.

Here are some pictures from our trip to Vegas:
Cliff, Leslie, me and Jake at the Mirage hotel Me and Leslie......two good-looking ladies ready for a night on the town!

Of course we had to "make" the guys take a picture with the show girls.

A Day of Family Fun


We decided to take a small trip to Marble Falls (about an hour outside of Austin) today and go to a Fall Festival with some of our friends. It is such a pretty drive out to Marble Falls going through the Hill Country. We had a good time even though it was SO hot! It definitely didn't feel like "Fall". Nathan had his friends Luke and Lily there with him to enjoy the festivities. Nathan got to play around in the pumpkin patch and pet some baby goats. Well I say "pet", but really hitting and pulling are more accurate. haha The kiddos (and the parents) only lasted an hour in the heat. Nathan's little cheeks were so red. We decided to get reprieve from the heat at Suzanne and Shauna's parents house (they live in Marble Falls). We all felt much better lounging in the A/C and eating brownies and ice cream. :-)

Here's Jake, Jeff and Mark testing their childhood slingshot skills.












Nathan in the pumpkin patch. He really didn't know what to think of all the pumpkins at first. But it did make a nice little seat for him. :-)
















This is the best picture I could get with all the kiddos. As you can see, the kids were much more interested in the pumpkins than pictures.










This is the "Mom it's so hot out here" picture.
