I know I am MONTHS behind, but better late than never, I guess. Here are a few pictures of the boys dressed up for Halloween. Liam has been obsessed with Scuba Divers ever since we went to the aquarium this summer. So, to go along with the Diver theme we has Hudson be a shark. It was pretty cute :).

Look at these little Pumpkins :)

I couldn't get Hudson to smile to save my life, but he is a cutie anyways :).

A Year for Billy

As many of you know, two of our closest friends, Billy Wilkerson and Ron Bailey were in a very serious car accident involving a drunk driver on July, 31st. As it is a complete miracle that they are both still here with us, they have a long road ahead in their recovery. This website has been set up for Billy and his family to help them through the next year. Please take a minute to check it out, pray about it, see where God leads you. If you are unable to help out monetarily at this time, please continue to lift both Billy, Ron and their families up in your prayers. This is going to be a long road, but with the love and support of friends, family, and complete strangers, they will begin to heal and make a new beginning. Thank you!

This is Billy and his AMAZING family :)

Billy, Brandon, Nick, Ron

First Day of Preschool!

I can't believe this day is already here. I have been thinking, praying, and stressing about the details of this day since we signed him up months ago. God is SO gracious, and it went better than I could have ever imagined! We have been talking about it A LOT, so he was really excited and ready to go. Carpool was what I was most anxious about. I just imagined them pulling him from the car kicking and screaming. However, it was just the opposite. He jumped right out, waved, and said, "Bye, Mom". Yes, MOM. Not Mommy, or Mama, MOM! A little hesitation would have done this Mama's heart good, but I am glad it went so well :). The teachers said he did GREAT, and he actually CRIED when we got to the car and wanted to go back in! Maybe I will pray a little less next time (ha ha ha). Really, I am so blessed and relieved that he LOVES it!

Pancakes and bananas on his "special" plate for breakfast.

So excited to go to school!
Already sick of taking pictures...

Liam with Daddy

Sweet boys :)

Smiles with Mommy :)

Love this Kid!
So handsome!
Yeah, they have matching shirts. I'm ok with that.
Liam with his teachers. He did GREAT!!
(As you may notice, he is wearing different pants than when I dropped him off. Liam hasn't had an accident since maybe the first week of potty training, so I was concerned when I saw him in different pants. His teachers assured me it was totally their fault. You see, Liam has an aiming problem :). They now know to clear all items within a 10 ft. radius or else it will result in the need for new clothing. Oh, the joys of little boys :))

Fire Station Visit

Our neighborhood playgroup took a trip to the Fire Station yesterday. They did the "friendly firefighter" program for the kids. This is just where the fireman dresses up in all his gear and talks to the kids about how firemen help you. I thought for sure Liam would be scared of him in all of his gear, since he is afraid of everything, but he wasn't at all! I think it is because he got to actually see the man put each piece of gear on, instead of just coming out all dressed up. He was fascinated, and we all had a great time!

Liam with the BIG truck!

Liam was pretty sure after seeing the oxygen tank and the mask, that the firemen were in fact divers. Only fueling his current obsession with divers :).

Our Week :)

This happy little guy can brighten any day! Love him to pieces.
The weather has been a little cooler this week. We made it to the park 3 times, once on our own, and 2 play dates. Fun times :)
Look at these big boys riding in the buggy. I LOVE Hudson's chubby cheeks!
My sweet boys had to get shots on Tuesday :(. This is the first time Liam has taken a nap in months! Although the shots were traumatizing, the nap was a welcomed treat.
Liam has been OBSESSED with divers ever since our trip to the Aquarium last month. Nick was able to find this book with divers in it when we went to the Library. Liam LOVES it!
Yum-O! Made some homemade doughnuts for breakfast. Haven't had them in FOREVER, they were delicious!

Hudson is 5 Months old!

Little Huddy Buddy is 5 months old! He is growing and changing so fast. I am trying to be good and write down everything like I did with Liam. So far, I am keeping up pretty well :). At five months, he is rolling over in both directions, grabbing his toes, holding toys, laughing, mimicking sounds, and eating rice cereal, and a couple vegetables. I was planning on waiting until 6 months to start solids, but this little guy was acting like he was starving every time he would watch us eat. And, unlike Liam, he ate like a champ the first time I gave him cereal. He loved it! It cracked me up, I had to try with Liam for about a month and a half before he would actually eat it. We are having so much fun with our two boys. Nick and I still look at them all the time and can't believe we have 2! It is just awesome to watch them together. Liam can make Hudson laugh like no one else, it is the cutest thing ever! I will have to post a video soon.
