Trick-or-Treating: Round 1

Tonight we had our first round of trick-or-treating. Carson got dressed up in his Buzz Lightyear and Colton in his scarecrow, MiMi came over and we headed out to "Trick-or-Treating in the Park" at Stevenson Park in Friendswood. It was a lot of fun and Carson, aka Mr. Social, had a great time. He was the hit of the park with his Buzz costume...not to mention that personaility he has! Colton slept most of the time in the stroller. We had a great first run on trick-or-treating and all ready to take on Mansfield Park next Sunday with a whole group of friends and family!

Pumpkin Patch







Well one thiing learned...it is VERY difficult to get a picture of both the boys at the same time at these ages! Carson had a lot of fun picking his pumpkin this year. The whole way there he kept saying he was going to get a BIG one. Well he ended up with the smallest one there:) Daddy got the big one incase he remembered he wanted a BIG one later. Colton was cute as ever and got his first pumpkin too.

So Behind on Blog!!

I am so behind on my blogging! So much has happened I don't even know where to start. Colton is growing like a weed. He is crawling and even pulling up on furniture. Just tonight he pulled all the way up to his feet and so wanted to take a step. He is so jealous of Carson and wants to run around so bad...it won't be long!

Last weekend we went to the lake with Carson's BFF's. Our neighbors! Madison, Bella and Carson play together all the time and even go to the same school. Since he is right in the middle of their ages they play so good together. Corey and I enjoy Scott and Brandi's company as well. We went to the lake and had a wonderful time. The kids loved feeding the "reindeer" and although there was much indifferent feelings about the boat ride...both girls ended up LOVING it! The 3 Amigos had so much fun on the boat. They also though it was pretty neat to have a sleep over and all sleep int he same room! We were glad the Breaux's were able to come and can't wait to do it again.

Cousins

Got some pics of the kiddos...all them:) They all were together at the River this weekend...funny how both my families merge and all our kids get to play together! The last 2 pics are just some of my cute little boys. Colton was being so cute and I was taking his pictures and Carson said "I cheese too" so I had to take his picture in the bath tub...oh the jealousy:)

Carson Takes on the Circus

ZING ZANG ZOOOOOM!!! We took Carson to his first circus this week. I am so glad we decided to cause HE LOVED IT!! His favorite part was the clowns. If you get there early, before the show you can go down and see the animals and meet the clowns. Carson's eyes sparkled when he saw the clowns...just look at the pictures and see the precious smile. We had really good seats and he was completly intrigued by the whole show...all 2 and a half hours!!! In 2 years Colton will be old enough to enjoy it so we will defiantly be going back then.

River House

Last weekend we decided to go down to the river house. We went fishing and took Carson to the beach where he found his friend the hermit crab. He is so funny and talked to everyone on the beach. He is defiantly not shy and as it has been said before "future President of the US"



































Random Boys

Just wanted to post some random pics of Carson and Colton.

4th of July at the Lake

We took the kids to the lake house for the 4th of July this year. We had such a good time with great friends! Carson got to practice his swimming skills and Colton got into the lake for the first time. It was pretty cold for him so he didn't think it was as great as us. Luckily, we brought along my cousin Mollie and her friend Ally to help us with the infants. They were great and watched Colton so we could swim with Carson and friends. We had a firework show on Sunday night that was awesome! I found a great quote that is very appropriate for just celebrating the 4th of July that I would like to share with everyone:
"Freedom can only be won not given but it can be taken away and gone forever"
We won our freedom once let's not let it be taken away!

Carson AKA the lil fishy

Carson finished his swimming lessons today. I am so proud of him!! He has done so well and I am very happy with the lessons he received. If you don't remember the blog before this was his first class, this video is his last class, he is swimming underwater, jumping in and swimming and learned how to swim to the side/get out of the pool. His whole class improved so much! I am so glad we put him this class!

Carson Starts Swimming Lessons

Today Carson started swimming lessons. I knew I wanted to enroll him but I searched for one that I didn't have to get in the water with him. Everytime we go swimming he clings to me and I knew it wouldn't work that way. I found a place that I didn't have to get in with him and it is indoors and with that skin that is a big PLUS! I was pretty nervous that he was going to freak out when we got there and not participate but boy was I wrong!! He was so good and I was so proud of him! He got in, swam around, listened to his teacher and jumped off the side. At times he was more interested in the cute little girl in his class but when it was his turn to try he did so good! We have the lessons everyday for 2 weeks so I will post another video at the end of the lessons.

Colton eats and Carson Poops

Tonight we decided to start Colton on some rice cereal. He loved it! He smiled and cooed the whole time he ate. He ate the entire bowl and is getting the hang of swallowing food:) I took a few pics below and what did I see when I downloaded them...RED HAIR! I knew he was going to be just like his big brother! Speaking of Carson, I don't think I have blogged that he is totally potty trained! He has not had any accidents in over a week and has even got the poo poo down too:) He goes to the potty all by himself everytime and doesnt even come and tell us until he is done AND pours his little potty out into the big potty and flushes it... he has always been a clean kid. I completly recommend the "Potty training bootcamp" (www.thepottybootcamp.com), it was the best $5.95 I have ever spent and practically had Carson potty trained in 1 1/2 days!!

Colton Rolls Over

So Monday evening Colton came really close to rolling over. Corey and I sat in the livingroom with the video camera on him for a good 30 minutes and he never got completly over. So wouldn't you know that little stinker decided to roll completly over while at MiMi and PawPaw's today! When we got home I got the camera back out and caught it! It is really cute and we are so proud of him! You can see at the end he is proud of himself too:)

Mommy's Day!

I had a great Mother's Day this year! We started the day with brunch at my mom's. Then we came home for some naps:) Then we went out to Marble Slab for dessert and then down to the Kemah Boardwalk for a walk and to look at boats. Carson loves boats...any type of boat, plane, train, car, trucks, etc. So looking at all the big boats and riding on the ferry was big fun for him!
As you can see in our pictures it is getting more and more difficult to tackle Carson down for pictures, he is defiantly all boy and always wanting to play.

Corey and the boys were really sweet to me and I got 2 rings that stack and have November and March birthstones on them. November for Corey and Carson and March for me and Colton.
Carson is really coming into his little personality now too. While at Marble Slab when we went to leave he had to go around to each table of people and tell them "bye". It was really funny and one guy said "future President of the US".
Colton is growing like a weed, 12 lbs and in the 70th percentile. He is smiling and cooing all the time. I FINALLY got a video of his smile!
Nothing is better than being a mom and my 2 boys are the best things that has ever happened to me!

Some new pictures of Colton in our Thursday afternoon photo shoot. He is smiling now but he won't let me get it on video! He will be similing up a storm and as soon as I put the camera in his face he stops and just stares at it:( Maybe I will get it soon.
This super cute hat was given to us by Melanie. THANKS MEL!
