Monday, November 30, 2009 and gone!

Where has this month gone? Can't believe it's going to be December already tomorrow! I know I haven't updated the blog lately...I just uploaded November's pictures and hardly have any to post! Carter was sick last weekend and I was sick this fun! We did have some fun play dates with Jackson, Greyson and Liam this month but I don't have any pics!

Here are few pics of some highlights of the month:
Carter LOVES to go outside and feed the squirrels :) with daddy. A few nights it was dark so Brian gave him his hunting light to wear. It was so sticken cute to watch him out in the woods with his little light on his head. Thought he was big stuff as always.
Thanksgiving day was also my dad's b-day so I made him a Harley cake...not perfect but not too bad!
Carter helping grandpa open his hunting blind.
Since I didn't get anything done all weekend (although I did survive Black Friday shopping!) I wanted to get the Christmas gifts wrapped today. Carter thought he would help out too (hey it kept him busy)! :)
Carter turned 20 months on Saturday and oh how much fun he is lately! A few of his favorites lately are coloring, watching Elmo, playing with any truck or car and his vocabulary is really expanding. Basically just one word at a time but he definitely can tell you what he wants and is really repeating what we say. He is quite the cuddle bug...which I LOVE and he can't wait for daddy to come home at night. He is a big helper and actually quite a good listener too but yes, he is a boy and a toddler so he does show us previews of the terrible twos as well! He will be so fun at Christmas this year and we can't wait to create more memories with our little guy!

18 months...well actually 19 month pics

Last Sunday when we were all under the weather we stuck with our plan of getting Carters 18 month pics (a little late as he is 19 months) b/c the weather was so nice! Click on the Captured Memories blog link on the right or you can click here to get a sneak peek! We took some of the three of us to use for a Christmas card too. I LOVE them and can't wait to see the rest! Thanks Jenn!

Halloween 2009

Last week Carter got to experience his first pumpkin carving. He wasn't too sure of all the gunk as you can see! :) But thought the pumpkin mommy carved was so cute he was puckering up to kiss it!

Great Grandma came for dinner last Wednesday before she left on a mission trip and my dad came too b/c mom was working late. He put his costume on for Great Grandma. Here he is showing grandpa.
Our cute little dinosaur.
Unfortunately I came home from work sick on Thursday and felt okay on Friday but was hit again on Saturday and Carter came down with it too. Brian also didn't feel the greatest. Thankfully Carter and I just had head colds so no fever or flu but it has been miserable and we are still getting over it. So no trick or treating unfortunately...thankfully Carter is little enough not to care!

Halloween Costume Party

Friday night Pete and Stac once again hosted a great Halloween party. Here they are as great Wheel of Fortune pieces. Such a great idea!The winners of the costume contest, Nick and Kylie. They were HILARIOUS. They always show up and we are never quite sure if its them or not. They had the complete outfits from head to toe.
Jason and Martha as Fred and Wilma. I think Martha is a little too stunning to be Wilma! She was so cute!
Another fave...Octomom and the UPS man. Jen was so funny and I loved it!
And Brian and I as The Bunmaker and a Bun in the Oven. My costume wasn't too comfy so it didn't stay on too long!
