Halloween Happenings!

Click the picture to see it bigger.

Hope you are all having a fun Halloween! Here's what we have been up to over the last weekend.

1) Church Class Party - Good food, fun, a hay ride (pictured), and lots of little dressed up kiddos (also pictured)!

2) Haunt the Zoo - A walk through the zoo where they give out treats and have lots of fun photo ops. Here is Chase and some of his buddies at the zoo and him hugging his friend Mickey. :)

3) Fall Festival at Church - lots of games, prizes, candy, etc. Chase didn't have a great time here because it was so crowded and hot...and he's not old enough to care. Here is a picture of what it was like most of the time we were least until he got to take off his costume and have a sucker and play with his new glasses...things started looking up after that. :)

4) That brings us to Halloween...Oct. 31st. What are we going to do? Not a thing! Maybe we'll give out candy at our door. :)

Hope you all have a super day!

Our Weekend in Pictures

We visited a pumpkin patch that was really a down-home amusement park for kids. It was really fun. Chase got to go in a petting zoo, play on the play ground, go on a train ride, ride the carousel, etc. It started out great but then the weather turned cold and windy and we decided to leave before we actually went on the hay ride out to the pumpkin patch. But Chase had a good time while we were there and had no idea that we missed anything. We went with our friends the Fosters. Oh...and am I the only one in the family that knows how to look when a picture is being taken?

The Chase had his first hair cut!!!! He did great as long as he had a cherry sucker in his mouth!

Then we went for a walk in the park and took a few pictures. This big one was my favorite. Nice hair cut Chase!

OH! And then the Fosters (pictured above) had their baby on Sunday! Welcome baby Bryce! Maybe they'll post a picture soon...

Funny Video

Here's some cute video of Chase, Lucy, and our friend's dog Pod for a few laughs...
Chase is laughing so hard while I make this post...he keeps wanting me to play the video over and over. I wonder if he realizes it's himself....

Purple White, Purple White, Fight Fight Fight

This weekend Preston, Chase, and I all headed down to Abilene for ACU Homecoming. It was super fun! This year was my 5-year reunion year so it was really a big deal: lots of people that I graduated with were there, we had a reunion dinner, etc. Much fun was had by all. We stayed with my cousins Ryan, Holly, Boston, and Boone and it was really fun to see them. We went to a carnival on campus, went to the parade, I went to my EOX breakfast at 6:30 in the morning, we went to the dinner, went to my favorite church in the whole world. But best of all I got to spend lots of time hanging out with old friends. :) Here are some always there are more of kids than of adults.

Me and a few of my girls:

Something New To Try

One of our friends has been involved in the creation of a new website. It's very cool and has tons of features. If you have a chance go to the website, create an account, and take a look around. (It's kind of an alternative to a website similar to yahoo.) They are still in process so give them some tips or suggestions if you have any. And tell your friends about it!

The site is

Chase's Battle Wound's not really a "battle wound" but he did fall off of the chair in our living room face-first only to hit the corner of his wooden puzzle that happened to be between him and the carpet. All this while in the care of his Aunt Leah. :) Haha. She said he didn't cry too much. What a toughie. This is also a pic of his new fire truck p.j.'s.
(And no, i'm not trying to compete with Jen's crazy kid...check this out...and this.)

Young Married Class Retreat

Last weekend Preston and I joined our young married class from church on our annual retreat. (Chase stayed with Grammy and Granddaddy.) It was really fun! Here's a picture of all of us that went. We have such an awesome group!
