Happy Halloween!!

We went with more of theme than a costume....back to the 50's. We really don't do much trick or treating anyway. Most of our neighbors keep to themselves and I don't trust going to places we don't know. So, across the street we march to visit Freda. Of course she has a treat bag made up especially for each one of them. They made off like bandits at her house alone.....and that doesn't include what they got from Granny & Paw Paw and Grandma & Grandad. Before bed we watched "The Great Pumpkin".....what would a holiday be without Charlie Brown???

Introducing Lucy!

The newest member of our family is an orange tabby kitten. She is about 8 weeks old, has beautiful blue eyes and is finally getting a little spunk about her after being sick with an upper respiratory infection. Emily wraps her up in a blanket and packs her around like a baby!

A few pictures....

Sleeping babies

What a month!

October has been busy. We have had conferences with both the kids teachers and they are both doing GREAT in school! There was an open house at school and all grade levels had the kids performing on stage. We've had ball games twice a week all month. We squeezed in a couple of trips to Six Flags for Fright Fest. The kids and I made a weekend trip to visit mom, dad and the girls. We had a cookout at Jeff's mom and dads. Wow....I think that pretty much sums it up.

Now on to what Wyatt and I feel is the most important (upcoming) event.....the two of us are going to the Busch race this Saturday!!! Paul (Jeff's dad) got two free tickets and he gave them to us. We are so excited!! We are going to head up to the track bright and early Saturday morning to hang out with Granny and Paw Paw at their camper before the gates open. We have tried to explain to Wyatt that with our scanner, we will be able to hear the drivers, their crew chiefs and spotters talking to one another. He gets it and yet he doesn't quite understand how it's going to work. He just knows he is excited about going to the race track. We will see the Cup boys practice a couple of times before the race. Instead of sitting in a ton of traffic after the race, we're going to head back over and hang out with Granny and Paw Paw for a while longer and have dinner. It's going to be a fun day for me and my boy!!

HA......I believe this is sooner rather than later!!!

Ummm, I'm speaking of my comment in the post from last night about pictures! Anyway, here are the rest of the homecoming week pictures as well as a couple from Six Flags this past weekend. They better load quick though.....babies are napping!!

Jammie day

College/Pro shirt day.....go Mavs & Raiders!!!

Purple and Gold school shirt day

I can't believe we got Em to get this close to Shaggy and Scooby!! This is a first. She will not go near Tweety Bird, Sylvester, Bugs Bunny....any of them. I was thrilled to get these pictures. But look at how much distance she kept between herself and the opposition!!!!

School picture day.....

and Wyatt's first baseball game. I don't have pictures for this post though. Just thought I would add a quick update.
Emily didn't have a clue what to expect on picture day.....but she sure was excited about it! She was asking me a couple of questions on the way to school and Bubba piped in and took over the her the low down on how picture day works. He assured her that it was "cool". Yep, that's my goofy kids! They both seem to be doing really well in school. We will find out for sure on Thursday.....parent/teacher conference day.
Wyatt also had his first baseball game tonight. Actually it was supposed to be last night, but they called it because of bad weather. I have not been going to practices because they run past the kids bedtime......Emily stays home with me so that I at least have one of them in bed at a decent time! Anyway, Jeff seemed to think the game may not go so well for our team. We have a couple of kids that......well, lets just say that appropriate behavior is NOT a priority at their house! Those kids behaved just as we had expected. However, when all was said and done....our team only lost by one point. The kids who were there to play, played really well. That included Wyatt! He made three really good hits, scored 2 runs and got a man out on second....which is where he was playing tonight.
I have some pictures that I need to post.....but it is my bedtime so I'm not taking the time to do it tonight. Hopefully I will have them up sooner rather than later! I hope all is well with everyone. Leave us a comment so we know you've been here reading! Goodnight...sweet dreams!!
