Our Lil' Bumblebees

Caden wanted to be Bumblebee from Transformers for Halloween.  Carter adores his older "brudder" and wanted to match him, so he chose to be a baby bumblebee.

Caden's First Jack O'Lantern

The other night, Caden waited very patiently for Daddy to come home so they could carve his pumpkin together.  This is the first year that Caden helped carve his pumpkin.  He was taking the pumpkin seeds out of the pumpkin one at a time.  After taking a few of the seeds out, he told Daddy, "You do it!" Despite getting his hands dirty, I think he enjoyed his first pumpkin carving experience.

Our Little Pumpkins

Last Saturday, we took the boys to the pumpkin patch to pick out a pumpkin.  It was taking Caden a long time to find a pumpkin.  When I asked him what was wrong, he looked at me concerned, "They're all dirty!" He does not like to get his hands dirty; he definitely takes after his Daddy!

Carter doesn't even know he went to the pumpkin patch--he slept the entire trip!

Family Photos 2011

We just received our family photos from Jeremy Mabe.  Here are my favorite photos from the shoot:

You wouldn't believe how hard it was to get this shot!

I love how Caden is holding both of our hands.

We love our boys!

Caden's rocking chair was the perfect prop!

Our ham!

So small in Daddy's arms

I love everything about this--timeless!

Thank you again, Jeremy Mabe Photography!

Our Little Superhero

Daddy:  "What do you do if someone you don't know tries to talk to you?"
Caden:  "I will fight them!" *spin kick*

Through Mommy's Eyes: Letter #6 (Brotherly Love)

Dear Caden,

When I found out that you were going to have a little brother, I was so excited for you.  My brothers (your uncles) are inseparable and I want the same for you and Carter; my prayer is that you two become the best of friends.  You two are so blessed to have each other and I want you both to always remember that.

Love you to the moon and back,


Brotherly Love
