Halloween 2010...

I baked Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies today! They are super easy to make. Here is the recipe: 1 box yellow cake mix, 1 box spice cake mix, 1 bag of mini chocolate chips and 1 large can of pumpkin pie filling. Mix everything together and bake at 375* for 13 mins.

I don't know what I was looking forward to more today- Beckett's first Halloween or Payson being able to trick-or-treat and understand what is going on. Either way, it was a great day.

Fall Weather...

The weather here is finally getting cooler and we LOVE it. We've been able to enjoy our wagon now that Beckett is sitting up on his own. I also love putting the boys in all of their matching fall outfits.

*Payson was SO excited
that Beckett was in
the wagon with him.*

*Showing me his cookie.*

We took the push car with us to Brittany's house for Beckett to sit in while Payson and Hallie played outside. Payson was a little confused why he wasn't getting to ride in it because it used to be his. Both Payson and Hallie had fun showing Beckett how to honk the horn.

Took the boys to Kiddie Tyme again and this time Beckett was able to enjoy all the toys too. Payson had fun pushing Beckett around.

Pumpkin Patch 2010...

Yesterday, we went to Cox Farms and had so much fun. All I really care about was getting some good pictures of the boys, but we ended up having a great day.

Vacation Part 1: Williamsburg

Part one of our vacation began with breakfast at Cracker Barrel on Monday morning. After a yummy meal, we began our two hour drive to Williamsburg. Once we arrived in town, we went shopping at the Outlet shops to kill time before we checked into our hotel. After getting settled into our room, we gave the boys a nap and had dinner at the hotel. We ended up needing to make a trip to the drug store to get Payson some medicine because the day before his nose started running and it was getting worse. He is very prone to ear infections once he gets a runny nose. Before we knew it, he started getting a fever and didn't feel good at all. If a sick baby wasn't enough, we then discovered that Busch Gardens is only open Friday through Sunday's during the fall. The only thing we could do was change our hotel reservation, drive home and come back on Thursday. Before we went home, we took a quick tour of Colonial Williamsburg. Our mix-up ended up working out for the best because we were able to take Payson to the doctor on Wednesday and get him on a couple new medicines to help his ear infections. Here are pictures from part one of our vacation.
