Dinner with Sue, Callen and Carter

Nick and Pat played in the "Hole in One Tournament" at Highland this afternoon and it included dinner this evening. Sue and I decided to get together for some pizza since the boys were out having a good time. Here are the "little" boys enjoying their dinner!


Stamps in the Bed?

Yesterday I bought Connor an Elmo and Cookie Monster stamp in the dollar section at Target (we all know as Moms we LOVE the $1.00 section at Target!). Connor LOVED them and carried them around all day. When Pat got around to putting him to bed he did not think Connor could get the "tops" off of the stamps and let him take them to bed... Not so sure that was a good idea on Dada's part. Here is what I found this AM! :)

Morning Mama!

Kind of hard to see, but the crib rail...

Play Date with Kelly, Izzy and Delaney

We had a play date/lunch with Kelly, Izzy and Delaney this week. It was great to spend some time with Kel while she is on maternity leave, have Iz and Connor play together and to get to know Ms. Delaney! Here are a few pics of the two "big" kiddos playing on the couch!

New Best Friend

Connor has a new best friend...his life size Tigger! Ga Ga and Ga Ga Kris were kind enough to send Connor a little "Get Well" gift after he got his stitches a few weeks ago and I can't tell you how much he loves it! It is a 24 inch tall Tigger stuffed animal that is about the size of Connor. He likes to take him every where he goes and here are some pictures from them playing outside tonight! Thanks Ga Ga and Ga Ga Kris!

Me and Tigger

Giving Tigger a hug!


Tigger likes to slide!

This one is a little tough to see because I took it from inside, through the window...but you can see him outside just hanging with his new buddy!

Tigger also loves to wrestle!

Apple Orchard

Sarah and I took the boys to the apple orchard today for a little time in the sun and some apple picking! The boys were typical two year olds and were sometimes uncooperative with us, so this is the only half way decent picture I got today. We had a great time (as always when we are with Sarah and Miles) and look forward to the apple orchard with three year old boys next time!


Don't you love the plaid on plaid! It was much cooler out then I expected this morning and the jacket was the only warm piece of clothing I had in my car...hence, the plaid on plaid! :)

Golf with the Little Ones

We had a wonderful Friday night with the Willis Family out at Highland! It was the first time we had Connor out on the golf course and all four boys had a blast! Dinner afterwards was tons of fun and we can't wait for our next night together!

Finishing up the hole


Carter putting his clubs away like Daddy
Nice shot Carter!
The boys got an extra special after dinner treat because they were so good...ice cream! Connor was eating his out of the bowl like it was on a cone and kept complaining that he was cold. We wrapped the bowl up in a towel and he continued to go to town with his ice cream. Too cute!
A fun video of the two boys on the course!

Aunt Cissy Photo Shoot

A few weeks ago, Aunt Cissy, Uncle Steve and John stopped by Meme and Pops house on their way to take John to his last year of college! Aunt Cissy is great with a camera so I just had to share some of the shots she took of Connor!

Weird faces from both of us...

With his Meme...

I love Meme! :)

A Trip to the ER

Unfortunately we took an unexpected trip to the ER last evening as Connor cut open his chin on the coffee table. We were enjoying a nice Sunday night dinner with Meme and Pops when this occurred and off to the ER we went. It was a long night (it happened around 8 PM and we got home around 12:30 AM), but we all did very well. Even Mommy was pretty calm...and everyone handled their roles like champions!

Here are a few photos...some of them are of the cut so readers beware! :)

First Day of School

Connor had his first day of school (Mother's Day Out) on Monday and we snapped this picture right after I got him strapped in the car. Connor is in the TWOs class this year and will be going to school on Mondays and Wednesdays. He had a great first day.

The picture under that is from Connor's first day of school/Mother's Day Out last year...man, how he has changed!

Sleep...

On Saturday night Connor was making a lot more noise then he usually makes after we put him down. After being up in his crib for almost an hour, we decided to go check on him and what we saw made Pat and I laugh so hard... Connor had taken his arms out of his pj top so it was around his waist and all his "crib toys" were on the floor. We had to take some pics because we were laughing so hard!
