A couple of weeks ago Connor and I went to the farm with mom and dad while Eric and James made yet another trip to Lubbock for a Tech football game. We helped Papa put up a fence around the deer feeder and played outside.
We had Thanksgiving in Hillsboro this year. James once again fried a delicious turkey while mom made all the fixings with a turkey in the oven, also. We had all the traditional favorites! Why do we only fix these yummy side dishes around the holidays????
Yesterday we had our first "light" snow of the year. Connor thought he hit the jackpot! He didn't care that his fingers were freezing or that his nose had frozen snot on it, he simply loved it. He kept telling me "It tastes like water, mommy. I like it!" I don't think Connor grasps the full concept of Santa and Christmas because he asks if we can see Santa everyday. Every year on birthdays and holidays I always say "This will be a fun year, he is going to have a blast". I think that Christmas morning will be so much fun when he walks down the stairs and sees what Santa has brought to him and the many things we have to be thankful for.
I love this picture, to bad I had to take it myself. I wish it wasn't so close up!!!

Connor and Hayden playing at the pumpkin patch.
Connor saw this little tractor and loved it. His Papa has a blue one just like it. He didn't want to get off and share, but eventually we found the snow cones and he was off!!!

The Cotton Bowel is in the background of our picture. Connor sat very still during the entire ride.

A couple of weeks ago James, Connor, and I went to Chicago to attend James' cousins wedding. Mike and Kathy (James' parents also went). We had so much fun riding the train to the city, walking to Lake Michigan and hanging out with his parents! (I can't figure out why this is underlined...sorry)
Mommy and Connor at the Brooksfield Zoo in Chicago. This was a fantastic zoo!!!

We are gearing up for the big day next week, but before that, we are headed to DC and watch Tech's opening game!!!!
Wreck 'Em Tech!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our faucet water is very warm, it makes Connor mad. He wants "cold water, mommy". Like I have any control over it...
Some days his horns are bigger than other days. Lately they are growing. We have hit the terrible 2's! Our favorite word is "NO", and pushing friends and hitting is not out of the question for Connor when he wants his way!

*anytime we want him to do something and he doesn't want to he says "me to small!"
*"not right now, mommy" and puts his hand up in the air
I cut the tip off of his pacifier last night
*"go to store, buy new one"
*"fix it, daddy"
I've been trying to potty train him
*"hiney bobo hurts, new diaper"
Connor will start school 2 days a week after Labor day
*"go to school in 2 months"
*"no like school, mommy"
*"mommy go to school"
He is into everything, terrible two's have hit, and his new thing is to push friends. At playgroup the other day he went around pushing all the kiddos. He likes to stand in the corner, if I swat his hiney he laughs, and putting the booster chair in the corner makes him laugh. I am trying to be patient. Overall he is a sweet little boy that loves life and everyone around him!!
Have a great day!!!!

Getting ready to eat birthday cake. Bubba, Connor, and Kylar jumping.
Connor and his friends at his party on Thursday.
This is the bounce house that Uncle Bubba got for Connor. It blows up in less than a minute and stores great!
This picture was taken last year on his first birthday. Wow, my little man is getting so big.

We spent Father's Day weekend at the lake with mom, dad, and Uncle Bubba. We took the jet skies out and stayed all day. We had a blast, sunburned, but we had fun! How is it I always remember to put sunscreen on Connor, but fail to remember it for myself.
Mom and I made a stop at the farm to drop off tile for the contractors. While we were there the neighbor and mom's good friend Cookie came down and helped us feed the cows. You can't see it, but the cows reached their tongues through the fence and wrapped it around Connor's little hand. Lots of giggles came from him!!
We are showig the "cake" that we fed to the cows.
Here is Connor at the lake digging in the sand.
