Happy Halloween

ok ill get to the good stuff--- one quick story first. The first house we went to Jake got a lolly pop. He insisted that he get it - he actaully threw a fit. He literally sat down and fussed until we gave it to him. The kid loves a lolly pop- come to think of it how did he even know what a lolly pop was???? Ok now the pics-

Jake is not talking all that much yet- but he defiantly knows more than we think. He has gotten to this point where i will ask him to repeat a word or tell me what a certain animal "says", he will think about it for a minute and depending on what it is- he smiles and does this little fake laugh- it is so cute. This reaction only happens for special things. Like when i ask him to say Mommy, what does a snake say? and what does an elephant say?
He has started to pick up on some other things too. He has always been good at listening to "no" or "no sir" there are only a couple of things that he refuses to listen. Wellll- he has picked up the word NO- There have been several times today when i said no to him and he had stopped what he was doing turned to me and said no right back. Not in an oh just try and stop me way, but an obedient cute innocent way. I cant wait to see what he does next.

sorry no new pics yet- but soon

Pop Rocks

Now I know you all remember this wonderful treat. The sweet taste, the fun sound and the crazy feeling of little explosions- when in reality its candy passing gas in your mouth... funny when you think about it... Anyway while Brent and I were treating our selves to a long over due movie night we saw the wonderful treat and grabbed a pack for later. We thought Jake would get a kick out of the popping. Later that night we gave him a little bit to see what he would think- not too much emotion so we decided to save the rest for the morning when he might not be sleepy. Around lunch we tried again and still not to much emotion- i think he just liked the fact it was candy more than the crazy party in his mouth. Oh well maybe next time when he can understand a little more about food and that it is funny when it explodes in his mouth- well we can hope.

It has been a while since i have posted and i realized that i forgot to post the HAIR CUT. Here is a video and and some before and after shots...



Not bad Huh!!!
Don't worry the curls are coming back already

fall fun

The last couple of weeks have been really crazy but we have also had a lot of family fun. One day last week we went to the park up the street and played on the slides and a sea saw animal thing- i dont know what they are called. Saturday we went to Briley's Farm with the recommendation from Lindsey Woolard. We went on a hay ride and saw all kinds of animals. I think Jakes favorite thing was running around with the goats and looking at the cows. Brent packed a lunch early that morning so that we could have a picnic while we where there. It was so cute Jake sat at the table like a big boy, with mommy on one side and daddy on the other. So cute- wish i took a picture.

Ok serious note- I need prayer - the owner of the company im running told me that if Obama wins then i will probably be out of a job. I also need to find a new sitter for Jake by, having some trouble with blind faith and waiting on this one. Deep down i do know that God will provide- its just how and when that im struggling with.... so if you think about it throw one up for me.

here are some pics from the family fun of our crazy week....

On The GO...

Well these past two weeks have been so crazy- every time i even think i have a second to blog i have just not been motivated. I woke up this morning refreshed and ready to go. Brent woke up and made waffles and eggs. They were so good- i thought that he put some vanilla in the mix. And now Jake is taking a nap and i get to enjoy a tallllll cup of coffee. I LOVE COFFEE!!! It has been a long time since i have been able to just sit and enjoy a cup from beginning to end.

Today is going to be fun- when Jake wakes up we are going to take him to the park across the street and let him play and run around. Later we will probably head out to the dollar store we have a couple of odds and ends to pick up then tonight is the volunteer banquet. I am looking forward to some olive garden.

B/c we have been so busy and had so much going on at night i have been able to stretch out having to go the grocery store- and we have only had to eat out twice and we went cheap. I think it was Monday when Brent and i were going to go food shopping but something came up and we were not home- then we had youth group on Tuesday and with everything going on i challenged myself to see if i could make it till the following wed- next wed. So far so good but man am i scrapping. Ive decided this week i am going to plan our meals out and shop for only what we need for the meals. I usually refill the pantry so to speak when i go but I'm only going to get what we need.

Tomorrow after church we are driving to Raleigh to have a small family reunion. Brent's parents, grandmother, uncle, his sister and her husband and his parents are all coming. Big gathering. We always meet @ south point mall. We get lunch at Camps and enjoy walking around- usually followed up with some ice cream. While we are there we are going to see if we can get Jake a new Carolina outfit- he has out grown his other and since its not b-ball season they should be on sale. Then if we have time and the price is right i might look for a pair of jeans. Since i lost all my preggo weight i have been so excited cause i fit back into all my clothes. Well all except my jeans - yes I've lost the weight- but no things are not the same SHAPE they used to be. I would just love to find an everyday pair of jeans. I'm looking forward to tomorrow jeans or no jeans.
Well that's all for now... All of you up there in Jersey - miss you terribly her is a video to keep you going till we can hopefully come visit in December..

This is a video of Jake and Uncle Jeremy playing with a frog that he got from the aquarium that we went to at the beach... We would not have got this for him if he did not seem to enjoy it so much
