What Precious Little Men...

On October 9, 2009, Jessica Wilson, our long time babysitter and friend became Mrs. Michael Peschell. Asher was the Ring Bearer and Mason the Bell Ringer. She made an absolutely beautiful bride. We were thrilled to celebrate their special day with them and wish them a lifetime of happiness.

Way too much candy...

Somehow we ended up with entirely too much candy this year. Between the camping trip, Cedarwood's annual Trunk or Treat and actually trick or treating on Halloween at Dad's, I am completely DONE with the candy...The kids have a different view however! Asher HAD to have a "homemade" ghost costume of which he ended up being utterly MISERABLE wearing everytime. Halloween night was so bad that he almost took the costume off until Brady walked up and cut a hole the size of Texas around his face so he wouldn't be so hot...Sigh!

Camping at Jellystone in Natural Bridge, VA...

We decided to do something a little different for this years annual camping trip. We got 4 families together and headed to Natural Bridge, VA to see Yogi, Cyndi and Boo Boo! There is no togetherness like 4 adults and 5 energetic kiddos in cabin the size of a studio apartment...Smile:) There are definitely only a few people that could pull this off. We had a great time and are looking forward to another great trip next year.

Grand Prix Racing Day!

For Asher's birthday this year, Poppy got him 3 races at the Greensboro Grand Prix. As you can see by the pictures, this was right up his alley. He had a blast spending the afternoon with Brady, Dad, and Uncle Fuzz! Needless to say...I am sure that we'll be doing a lot more of this.

Last Day at Cedarwood for Summer 09'!

Summer came and went way too fast this year for us. We spent most of our free time at the pool! (Our favorite spot) Labor Day was our last full day there and we stayed all day. The boys enjoyed playing chicken with Brady and enjoyed the ice cream treat, compliments of the social committee. I think because I was scooping they thought they could keep coming back for more. ") Hats off to Cedarwood for another great season.

Judian Tobin, Angie Williams and I. Ice Cream anyone?
A game of Chicken is always a winner with a pool full of boys.

Water Balloon Fight Anyone?

What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon! Today Brady and I celebrated our 12 year anniversary! The boys decided that we should engage in a good ole' fashion family water balloon fight! Needless to say, just as Brady instructed them to hit eachother and not us, I fired a shot at B and soaked him. After that, the rest is history. I don't think you can ever have enough balloons when doing one of these. As you can see, I was completely soaked and the boys, Mason especially (see video), couldn't laugh enough!

This video absolutely makes me laugh to the point of tears every time I watch it. Mason wanted to see how long he could laugh and I must say he had a pretty good run.

Gone Fishing with Dad...

Brady and Asher love Sundays fishing together. Asher caught a really good size bass and was so proud that he brought it home to show me. The video attached is hilarious! Brady waited and waited for him to catch it and it was just a NO GO! Oh well, they had a great time and I'm sure will have many more to come. The new quote from Asher is "An impatient fisherman is a hungry fisherman".
