The Sweet Sound of Laughter

Fall Fun Day

Connor had Fall Fun Day at preschool today and it was so much fun. They got to dress up like something you would find on a farm and luckily Connor's chicken costume from last year still fit.

Uncle Keith giving Connor a ride. I don't know why they wasted money on a bouncy thing, Uncle Keith came over and gave all the kids a ride.

Connor with his friend Jessie. Notice they are holding hands...I only allowed this b/c I know her parents.

Connor and Livy (Jessie wanted in the picture too)

Tiny Town and The Boardwalk

Colby went to play at Tiny Town for the first time last week. He loved standing up and trying to crawl around. He also loved watching all the kids running around.

Posing with his big brother

Last Saturday we meet Uncle Keith, Aunt Lori, Uncle Boo, Ms. Robin and Rachel at the Boardwalk for dinner and a little shopping. It was so much fun to visit with everyone!!!

The Fair

We enjoyed the fair this year with Uncle Boo. They didn't have a lot of rides for Connor but that just meant we didn't stay out there very long. Which was fine with me b/c it was so hot. Here are a few pics of Connor riding a few rides.

We parked by these guys and the minute Connor opened the door he said "Mom do you smell that stinky booty?" It was so funny.

Lion's Club Rodeo

We love the Lion's Club Rodeo back home and since my brother is in the Lion's Club we always try to go. We had a great time this year. Connor loved the rodeo!!!! We went on Thursday night so we could watch Ms. Robin barrel race. Connor was scared of Gidget (Ms.Robin's horse) at first but then he warmed up to her and Ms. Robin. In fact, he got to ride Gidget with Ms. Robin and he loved it. Now Connor barrel races in our living room on his stick horse Gidget.

The Rodeo Parade

My parents opened a Sears store so they put a float in the Rodeo Parade to let everyone know they were open. So, Connor and Colby were in their first parade. Here are a few pics from the parade.

Connor riding on the float!!! He liked driving the lawnmower.

Colby looking cute in his cowboy hat!!!

He rode in the Tahoe with my brother and grandmother. My grandmother said he laughed the whole parade.

  • Always laughing...he is really a happy baby

He is growing up way to fast!!!!!

Colby was 6 months old on September 13. He had to get shots and he was not a happy baby in this picture. Things I want to remember:
  • He is sitting up
  • Has his 2 bottom teeth
  • Hates all orange baby food
  • Crys when his mommy leaves him
  • Loves his big brother
  • A very happy baby

I'm sure there is tons more but I'm so far behind in blogging that I forgot some things already.

First Day of Preschool

Okay, I know this post is late but here is Connor's first day of preschool. He loves it!!!! His teacher is great!!!!! Here are a few pics of his first day. When he woke up that morning...he discovered that his back pack already had a few goodies in it. I saw something about a back pack fairy in a magazine but I decided to just say it was from daddy and mommy.

Looking at all his goodies!!!

Ready to go!!

Showing me his cute little back pack.

He didn't even look back to tell me bye!!!!:(
