Pumpkin fun!

The other night we attempted to carve pumpkins, which was fun for the first couple minutes then it just became super stressful. All I could think about was the mess I was going to have to clean up when we were finished, and Paxton was more interested in destroying my pumpkin than he was in carving his own...

So last night we did a different pumpkin craft. Mod-Podge pumpkins...which was way more fun and they turned out pretty cute.

Mine is on the right and Pax's on the left.

Arrr, Ahoy Mate!

We have a crazy pirate on our hands...A couple weeks ago I was trying to figure out what Paxton should be for Halloween; when I asked him he told me he wanted to be a Pirate, I figured he'd change his mind when I showed him the zebra or lion costume, but nope...he said he wanted to be a Pirate and that's what he meant. :) I found him a super cute costume and the accessories to go with it (all included in the picture.) I made the mistake of showing them to him before his nap, he insisted that he had to take it all to bed with him.

Once he fell asleep I removed it all, but it was so cute!

look close, he even has on the pirate earring :)

Baby Blues

It seems that the leaves aren't the only thing that's changing these days. I'm seeing so many changes in Paxton lately, good ones! I think that almost everyday I'm blown away by how smart he is, and by the things he says. He remembers things that I don't even remember, hearing or saying. He can recall characters names from a movie that he's only seen once and months ago. We also have to watch what we're saying, because even when we don't think he's listening to our conversations, he is! :)

My little wild man will now gladly settle down and enjoy a book or two...sometimes even three :)

His newest thing is telling us how big he's getting..."cause I'm a big boy now, I'm getting so big."


It seems like in life we're always given reminders when we really need them....

I've been thinking about Dru a lot lately, I think mostly because Paxton has been asking a lot of questions about him. Paxton sees Dru's pictures and recognizes him, but doesn't really know who he is! ...I only hope that Paxton will someday be even a little like his uncle Dru. :)

Yesterday, Pax and I were at the park and when we were walking back to the car I happened to look over and saw this paper staring at me :)

Before and After

Just wanted to share a before and after...

This picture was taken Sunday when we were at Smallwoods. Paxton was sitting in Juniors lap eating a caramel apple and popcorn :) His eyes looked amazing, but his face was pretty dirty! I cleaned him up and the result is AWESOME-Ness!

Baby Ava

I just love the expression on Ava's face...I think I love the picture even more after the edit, and maybe even more in Black and White :)

Bath Time: Crazy Face

It's getting harder and harder to get any pictures of Paxton. He's figured out all my tricks, and pretty much rubs it in my face. I think this look is kinda like, "hey mom...if you don't get that camera out of my face I'm gonna splash you, look" :)

Halloween Crafts

Last night Paxton and I did some Halloween crafts. He's still at the age where he doesn't really want to listen and follow the directions (which completely frustrates me), but in the end it all worked out! When he was making his pumpkins he told me, "these are for Graaama." He then kept telling me he wanted to show Graaama, so we had to get on the computer and do a video call. Now though, he says that the pumpkins are for, momma, dadda, and Paxton. :)

We started making some monsters tonight...hopefully we'll have them finished soon.
