The Wrestling Fiasco

Collin had his first "match" during practice this week. He did so great! He has really come a long way since last year. He has learned some new moves and is a whole lot stronger. He doesn't have his first meet until December 7th. Here is the first period of the match. He ended up winning 17-5.

Like Father Like Son

Collin had his first motorcycle lesson from Daddy this past weekend. He learned how to hook-up the battery to a charger. I love father and son moments. It makes me realize that my little boy is going to grow into a man someday. I can't even imagine.

Making Memories




The girls and I love to bake. Collin also loves to bake, but not on this day. On this day, the girls and I were making homemade buttermilk biscuits. Daddy found the recipe on Food Network, and it was good. I love spending this quality time with the girls. Plus, you never know when your making a memory!!


Fall Fun

We all love fall! This year the weather was not to working with us. By the time the leaves fell it was too cold to play outside, but we did have one lucky day to play in the leaves at Grandma and Papa's house. The kids even love helping to rake the leaves. I hope that lasts for awhile.

Nighttime Magic

Last night at our house we had a new magical visitor. Collin lost his first tooth!!! We were all excited and wondering what the tooth fairy would bring. This morning the wondering was over. Collin receive $5 for his first tooth!! Along with the picture. I also have a movie clip from the first moments after his tooth came out.

Tricks or Treats




This Halloween was awesome. The weather was so warm. It was 70 degrees. I was actually worried the kids maybe to warm in there costumes. I am usually trying to bulk them up underneath!! Collin was a mummy, Elyse Sleeping Beauty, and Leah Minnie Mouse. We went trick-or-treating through about half the neighborhood. I know we have enough candy to last us until Easter. This is the best Halloween we have had yet. The holiday season is just beginning :)

Halloween Preparations

Aside from the trick-or-treating itself, pumpkin carving is the most awaited event of Halloween season. The kids were asking almost everyday when we could carve our pumpkins. When the day finally came the kids were very excited. As you can see from the pictures a good time was had by all!!
