Happy Halloween!

"It's the most wonderful time of the year...."

Wrong song, but I thought it fit perfect. Halloween marks the start of my three favorite holidays. I think it is mostly because I get to decorate ;)

This past Saturday, we had friends over and we made a craft. Shanna got an idea to take a bird house and make it into a haunted house. Tyler was able to get a hold of wood and create his own. He did a fantastic job. I added my opinion, but it was all him.

Sunday, we did our pumpkin carving. Cameron is still too young to do anything, so he slept while Tyler and I went at carving. Afterwards, I made my pumpkin seeds. They sure were yummy.

This weekend, we get to go trick-or-treating. It will be our first time. It won't be long because Cameron still doesn't understand what is going on, but it will be fun as he gets older. We sure are excited. He is going to be a cute tiger.

I hope everyone has a wonderful, but safe, Halloween!!!

I can't believe our little boy is one! Where has time gone?? It goes by so fast! He is turning into a "boy." We love this little one and we are so excited to see what will happen next. Here are his stats:
  • 32" tall (95%)
  • 21 lbs (25%)
  • drinking from a camelback cup (with a straw)
  • sleeps mostly 12 hours a night
  • loves to crawl all over
  • can pull himself up on everything now
  • can sign MORE, MILK, DAD (not often, but getting there)
  • starting to say words (dog, jesus, dad, dee dee, papa, mom, done)
Here are some pictures of the birthday party. We had a long day due to family pictures the same day, but we had everyone there from my family and it was fun.
