A Step In Time!

I figured I would post a couple pictures of my birthday boy from the past to the present. Just so you can see how he has thinned out.

And a couple more.....

Couple more....

Okay - I am done!

My Baby Is No Longer A Baby!

My baby Blaze just turned 4 years old. I am really sad about it actually. He is so grown up and such a good kid. He really loves to play with his friends and drive his tractor. He loves diggers, tractors, trucks, basically anything used in construction. He loves Spiderman and Monster Trucks. He wished my truck was a Monster truck and kicks the tires all the time telling me they just aren't big enough.

For his party this year - he chose to invite some friends to the bounce park. The kids went wild but had a good time. Later that evening we had a family party with a John Deere theme. He loved all of this presents but has a really shy way of showinghis excitement. He is grateful for all he received and won't let me put them in the toy room just yet.

Here are a couple of pictures from his big day!

My Titan

I just have to tell you what my husband has done AGAIN. We recently sold our white truck to Darren's friend and have been looking for a used larger truck, mainly the Titan. Darren was in Arizona and was searching there but didn't have any luck before he had to fly home. He convinced me to let him drive his brothers car home so that we had two vehicles to take our Christmas to Arizona in. WHATEVER! What really happened was he tricked me again! He showed up with a brand new 2008 Black Titan all shiny and new. I couldn't believe it! I started crying and was in complete shock. I couldn't believe that he pulled it off again! Well - I had to show you the pictures of my new baby! He will have a hard time getting me to let this one go!

Happy Halloween!

Well - we had an awesome Halloween this year! Let me start by saying that this is our favorite holiday. I always dress up with the kids and make sure I am always part of Canon's school party and parade. Although this is the first year that we didn't go as a "pair", Canon was excited to have me there. This year he decided to be Sylvester and I just couldn't bring myself to be Tweety. The costume was horrible and I just couldn't do it. Instead, he carried a stuffed animal of Tweety and I went as Malificent from Sleeping Beauty.

Darren, always a good sport - went as Spiderman while Blaze went as the "bad" Spiderman. He was so excited to be like his Dad. Blaze got to parade through the high school trick-or-treating to each classroom but when it came to his Dad's class - he was so embarrassed that his Dad was dressed up like him - he wouldn't even look at him. Too funny! Look how cute!

So - I enjoyed my annual visit to Canon's school all dressed up to join him at his school party and parade. He was so excited to see his mom, THE ONLY PARENT DRESSED UP! I helped with games and with the treats and then we paraded through the school showing off our costumes. Parents were stunned to see me dressed up walking with the kids but couldn't stop complimenting me on the costume - it was awesome.

Later that evening - we went trick-or-treating throughout the neighborhood with friends of ours while Spiderman passed out candy. Darren's dream has always been to be like my Uncle Randy in that he passes out large candy bars. We bought several boxes but ran out within an hour - CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? Word must have spread quickly. Here is a couple family photos for you to see!
