 The kids were so excited when just tiny little flakes were falling so when the snow actually started to accumulate, they were even more excited.  This is the first time Tatum has really played in the snow that she can remember so she was grinning from ear to ear and loving it until her hands started to hurt.  Ty did a great job shoveling the driveway for his daddy and he said it was hard work shoveling snow.  I felt bad because I picked Ty up early from preschool because the roads were bad and I my conferences ended up getting cancelled but after we came in from playing in the snow, he had a 102 temperature and he was begging me to take a nap.  I felt bad.  What makes day even better is that Pat had an early release day but conferences were cancelled so he was able to come home from work at noon and we were able to enjoy the afternoon together!  Anyways, love the snow but just don't like driving in it!

Happy 4th Birthday Ty!

 I can't believe that it has been 4 years since we brought this little guy into the world.  Time does fly! We celebrated Ty's birthday with a Spiderman theme, no surprise there!  I had every intention to make an amazingly detailed cake but being pregnant I was a little tired so I asked Ty if I could just make a cake with a web on it and then put a big Spiderman candle on it and he said yes and he told me that my cake was awesome!  I am glad it doesn't take much to please him!  We celebrated with three sets of grandparents, The Johnstons, my sister's family, and Lianna and Xavier.  The kids were great and Ty got a lot of "cool" toys.  Everything to him is "cool" these days so he loved all of this presents!

Happy Halloween

We started our Halloween celebration with down-town trick or treating with our good friends the Johnstons and the Sleepers.  Then we trick or treated at each of the grandparents on Halloween then did a few houses in our neighborhood.  Then our kids handed out candy to what they called "the customers" that came to our house.  They really enjoyed handing out the candy to the other kids!

pumpkin patch field trip

 A couple of weeks ago, Ty's preschool went on a field trip to the pumpkin patch.  I was able to bring Tatum and they both had a blast.  The kids, went on a hay ride, picked a pumpkin, fed chickens, pet a bunny, blew bubbles, followed the yellow brick road, and listened to a story about pumpkins.  It was such a nice day and I am so glad that I was able to go!
