To Infinity and Beyond!

Happy Halloween!

I'm sick

I'm sick. I have caught whatever Hayden had and I'm miserable. I'd like to rip out my throat it hurts so bad. Plus, I'm cold and I don't like to be cold. What happen to beautiful fall weather, I feel like we jumped right into winter. Hayden is better so that's a plus. Luckily, I have a pretty laid back kid (most of the time) so we've been laying on the couch watching Halloween movies for the last few days. We've watched Monster House, The Nightmare Before Christmas(his current favorite), It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, Poohs Heffalump Halloween Movie, and of course all our Noggin Halloween favorites. I'm beginning to think that Halloween is Hayden's favorite holiday. He is going to be Buzz Lightyear for Halloween. It is the cutest costume ever and he's so funny. I try to get a jump start on things so I bought his costume back in May at the Disney Store for $12 originally $40 something. Every year they try to get rid of last years costumes before they put out the new ones. It's such a good deal because the costumes are way better than the ones you would get at the Halloween store or Walmart. Hayden has been wearing it all week. Plus, he wears it when he watches Toy Story. He walks around the house going "To Infinity and Beyond". That kid is something else. This will be his first year trick or treating. We didn't feel like he needed to go the years before. I'll be taking him on our street only. There are 9 houses I don't think he needs anymore candy than that. He's been practicing too, he walks around with his pumpkin bucket saying "trick or treat, can I have some candy, please".

Anyway, not much going on here. Hopefully, I'll start to feel better soon. Because this stinks. Happy Halloween Everybody, I'll be sure to post pictures of our Space Ranger tomorrow.

A trip to the park

A week late...

We have many parks in our area that we like to go to. This is the first time that we've been to the park at the community center and we weren't really that impressed. Hayden was bored after about 15 minutes. They do have a very pretty rose garden that you can walk around in. I didn't take any pictures of it, I was too busy trying to keep Hayden from picking the roses.

He's growing up so fast. I can't believe that in just a few short months he will be 3. He's such a big boy now and he knows it!

Blah, Blah, Blah

No pictures today! I left my camera in the car and I keep forgetting to take it out. Actually, Greg left it in the car...not me. But, whatever! Hayden and I had a pretty busy weekend which is so not the norm for us. Friday, Landon came over for what I like to call, "Toddler Sleepovers". They are adorable together and exhaust me completley but, keep me laughing at the same time. Landon went home with a black eye (sorry Nikki) from wrestling in the bath tub. Hayden got two minor concussions from jumping on the bed and hitting the wall. Just kidding about the concussion part. He did say he was dizzy though, both times. The two of them ate an entire pizza by themselves, except for the one piece they let me have. A whole pizza, these are 3 years olds! I didn't know they start eating so much so early. They went to bed with no problems at 8:30 and I had the rest of the evening to myself.

Saturday I decided to take Greg to work and spend the day in Fuquay. This is also rare for us, we don't get out of the house much. We hung out with my mom and Hayden played outside for hours at my sisters house. I miss them, I wish we still lived right up the road from them. Yesterday, Hayden was the pits. I guess he was over exhausted from two busy days. He was not fun to be around yesterday. This morning he woke up at 5:30 with a fever and a runny nose. He seems to be feeling better and the fever has not come back. Hayden has pretty much abandoned nap time for the last couple months. I've decided that I was going to reinforce them starting yesterday. So far so good, and I've gotten to take two uninterrupted showers!! Hallelujah!

This week should be pretty uneventful we don't have much planned. Happy Monday everyone!!! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I promise I'll post pictures over the next few days.

Workin' at the car wash

I love it when I get to sit back and snap pictures while the boys work. On top of that I love to see these two together. Today, they've been pretty much inseparable. Greg had 1/2 of yesterday, today, and tomorrow off. We love it when he's here, even when he's driving me crazy. Early today our living room was turned into a wresting match (I didn't get any pictures, I was to busy making sure my baby didn't get hurt). Hayden and Greg are adorable together and it's so nice to see them bond the way they do. In a way, I'm a little jealous. But, I know who they both need to keep them grounded and going day to day. Plus, I like to sit on the sidelines and watch them play together, it makes my heart smile.

Today, like two seconds ago, I decided that I don't like ice in my Hawaiian Punch.
Man, I learn something new about myself everyday.

The Perfect Size

We have a dog. We love our dog. But, he's not the walking on a leash type of dog, he never has been. He needs some serious training when it comes to the leash. Hayden would never be able to take Meko for a walk on his own. Meko would be dragging him behind. It would be ugly.

When we were in Texas, Hayden fell in love with Melody. She is the perfect size for him. He loved to take her for walks and she loved it when he took her on a walk. He misses her so much and when I showed him these pictures of him and Melody he asked if we could go to Nana's today. We miss you Melody and Jenny, and we miss our human relatives in Texas too!!!!
We Love you guys!

Hayden says:

Daddy: "Hayden, what do you want to be when you grow up?"

Hayden: "BIGGER"

(I couldn't have come up with a better answer myself)

Are you serious?!?

I woke up this morning completely uncomfortable. I wonder why? Are these two really serious. Do they think that I like to sleep in the fetal position? Do they think that I only need one little square of the bed and an inch of the blanket? The sad thing is that I don't kick him off in my sleep because I'm too nice. Well, I'm sick of it. I'm getting my bed back! I'm going to sleep comfortable again! You two just wait until tonight!

Can I have this...

What a wonderful day!

Yesterday, Hayden and I had a fantastic afternoon. Our day started out normal, I did laundry and my Monday cleaning while he played Lego's and made a mess. After lunch we went for a long walk, hand in hand, talking about our day. He talked and talked about everything he saw and what he liked. I was informed that his favorite color is red, not green like I thought. His favorite food is not candy, it's spaghetti. His favorite thing in the world is his soccer ball, I thought it was me! I learned a lot about that little boy yesterday just while taking a walk around the neighborhood. He informed me that our neighbors were actually monkeys that moved hear from the jungle. The used to live with the snakes and the jaguars (go figure). He has quite the imagination. His story was even equipped with the sound that the animals make. I've decided from hear on out to ditch the stroller and walk hand in hand with him always because I learn so much more about my son.

After our walk we kicked around his favorite thing in the world in the front yard. I'm still a little upset I'm not his favorite thing. But, I'm glad I was getting kicked around. Anyway, then we went exploring for wild exotic orange mushrooms (just mushrooms really). Our adventure started in the front yard and we ended up exploring the neighbors yards too. (hope they don't mind) We explored the park at the end of our street and saw fire ants and a hornets nest. When we finally made our way back home we had juice and a snack and watched Blues Clues. What a Beautiful Day!!!

Did you do any exploring yesterday?

Marshmallow Fluff

One of my favorite things in the world, Marshmallow Fluff. Man, I love that stuff. The other evening while in the kitchen I realized that even though Hayden has had a million marshmallows, he has never had Marshmallow Fluff! So I whipped out the jar and handed it over with a spoon.

He loved it! How could you not!

(I had a cute little video but it won't upload.)
