trick or treat!

this halloween marked the first one that addy actually participated in--and we had a blast!
we drove out to a little town called lucas where dusty's boss lives to celebrate with his family. we took a hay ride down to the park where the kids all played and the parents shared a beer or two. there was a small costume contest as well, addy got second--i think she got robbed. ;)

once the sun started to go down, we jumped back on the trailor to continue the hayride through the beautiful neighborhoods trick or treating. it was such a nice nite and addy had so much fun. she crashed about 7 houses in and spent the rest of the evening in my lap while the rest of the kids ran from house to house.

we had a great time and hope to do it again next year! happy halloween, yall!

Happy Halloween!

ten on tuesday

10 randoms for this october evening...

1. we are watching the rangers right now--hoping that they can pull off their first ever post season series victory. how exciting!

2. what is wrong with my cowboys? is it just me or do they play like a bunch of overpaid heartless wimps? where is the passion to play?? i miss troy, emmitt, michael, moose, and jay. :(

3. i LOVE our new floors in the living room. laminate is the way to go! so clean feeling. my hubby rocks!

4. addy is digging the disney channel all of a sudden. mickey mouse clubhouse and phineus and ferb are the faves around here...oh and don't forget about handy manny. when we get home most evenings, she wants to sit in my lap and watch mickey mouse--love it. she needs her "down-time" too. :)

5. i have been on weight watchers for about 8 weeks now...16 lbs lost! still a ways to go though--my plan is to get back to the shape i was in for our wedding 3 years ago. halfway there!

6. we want to paint our living room--suggesstions? its white, white, and white. we have chocolate brown furniture and natural wood rustic tables/ entertainment center. thoughts??

7. addy is becoming more independent everyday. she knows quite a bit of sign-more, please, eat, thank you, help- and babbles all the time. still stuck on "bubba", "dada", and "mama". she can now get into her booster seat for meal time all by herself. such a big girl--can't believe it sometimes!

8. i am loving my fall shows! parenthood, brothers and sisters, dwts, flipping out, grey's, the office--love em all! our dvr is so full.

9. the dryer just buzzed--i don't want to get up and take care of it.

10. top of the 4th--tied ballgame--stressed husband. i think i'll eat my ice cream now. :)

howdy folks :)

we went to the state fair today and had a great time. i'm not really sure of addy's take on it, i think it was all a little over-stimulating for her. :) she had her first corny dog and LOVED it--ate most of mine. she got to see the dog show, the livestock, the carshow, and saw some live music. she was a big fan of big tex--waved at him the whole time he was in her sight. we went with my mom and dad who did a much better job of taking pictures than this mommy. i'll put more up when i get them from grandpa, i'm sure. :) here is what i have...
