Pumpkin Patch

I just love looking at other people's pictures so I figure people like looking at mine too!! Our family went to a pumpkin patch this past week and it was great. In Texas it has rained every day during the month of October except for 2 whole days...yes, I'm actually in feels like that anyway. So it was finally not raining so we took advantage of it. Well, it may not have been raining, but it sure was cold, for Texas anyway, and super, super muddy!

The pumpkin patch was about 30 min. away, but worth the drive.

We almost got stuck in the mud in the parking lot, but thanks to Kyle learning how to drive in the snow, he used those techniques to get us a good parking spot without getting stuck at all! I knew there was a reason we lived in Idaho!! haha

Just a little plug, I have recently started weight watchers and have lost 9lbs in the first 2 weeks!! Making my total since moving to Texas a total loss of 16lbs!! It feels great! I love being able to wear pants I haven't been able to in a while. But more then that, I love feeling healthy!!

This is Conner feeding the longhorn at the patch. I thought he would be scared of them, but he has no fear.

This is Conner's pumpkin. He is still carrying it around the house!

By the end, Conner was done with the pumpkin patch, so he was crying, but we had a great time overall with the tractor ride, feeding cows, goats, and sheep, and picking our pumpkins.

Our little family! We love being together, especially since Kyle is working 2 jobs now, trying to get us financially ready to get him back to school. So, we may not see him a lot, but when we do we try to have a good time together.

Conner and Josh feel right asleep in the car. Don't you love his socks? He is so stylish! Life is great! I love my family!!!

Conner's 2nd Birthday

So this picture should be last, but whatever. After a long day and no nap Conner fell asleep while he was eating dinner. He is so cute! And had a great day!

We had a party in the back yard with all of Conner's friends from nursery. We had over 30 people there! It was a lot of fun. I think Conner's favorite part were the balloons.

We put Cars tats on his cheeks!! haha,

Eating his birthday cupcakes!

We opted for cupcakes with the 2 year olds instead of cake. But even the wrappers are in the Cars theme. I had a lot of fun doing this party for Conner! Being a mom is the best!

Conner loved the pull string pinata. I don't know if they are all like this or it just happened to work out this way, but the thing didn't open until the very last that normal? We still have the pinata and Conner just likes playing with it like a real toy.

This was right when Conner woke up, we had a lot of balloons outside his bedroom as a surprise. He loved it! I think it is funny you can see the bungee cord hanging on the door knob because they are french doors you just pull open and Conner can open the doors so we have to bungee cord them so he stays in to go to sleep. haha.. I promise I'm a good mom!!

Ok, Josh is just so cute I had to post a picture of him. All in all it was a great party for Conner and we had a lot of fun. I know I'm posting this about 3 weeks after his birthday, but better late then never right....
