Another weekend at the Farm

This past weekend James decided to make a quick trip to Lubbock/Denver City to the Texas Tech game. The boys and I decided to go halfway with him and stay the weekend at the farm with mom and dad. Here are a few of the things we did.

Here are the pumpkins we carved. Papa and Connor carved the face and Ian and I carved the kitty cat on the fence.

Ian fell asleep in the warm sun while riding the mule.

Papa says every 4 year old should learn to drive. He let Connor loose on 100 acres. Luckily all he needed was the path around the barn.

Connor and his fish. Papa did throw the line but Connor reeled it in. He sure did NOT want to touch the fish though.

15 months

I took Ian to the dr. this morning for his 15 month ckup. He is still on the "petite" curve.

He is:
*Weighing in at 21.10 pounds 10-15%
*length is 30.5 inches 25-50%
*head is 15%

Some things I want to remember:
-He loves to torture Connor.
-he continues to put everything in his mouth.
-Ian is eating all table foods with the exception when we go out to eat or we are in a bind he still will eat baby food.
- He has a temper and will show it to you if he doesn't get his way.
-he has the sweetest smile.

Happy Birthday Dad!

This past weekend was James' birthday. We had a great time celebrating. I "let" James pick his own present out this year...two tickets to the World Series! He actually picked ME to go with him. It was fun hanging out and enjoying each others company. Because we went to the game we didn't get to celebrate with the kids. On Monday we ordered our favorite cupcakes and sang Happy Birthday to the BEST daddy two boys could ask for!

On our way to the game! I love you!

Celebrating at the end of the game.

Awesome! I get chills/teary eyed every time the anthem is played!

One last Summer trip to Galveston

The day after James and I returned from the Bahamas we loaded up the boys and went to the beach. We rented a very nice beach house and spent time with the family. Ian was a bit under the weather and very clingy since I had just left him for 5 days. Connor had a blast playing in the waves and digging in the sand.
Here are a few pictures from our trip:

I finally think I've caught up on my summer onto FALL.

At the end of August James and I took our 10 year anniversery trip to the Bahamas. We had a great time relaxing, hanging out at the beach, and resting. We spent most of our time relaxing on the beach. We thought hurricane Irene was going to put a damper on our plans, but she didn't and off we went (without our precious boys). I was fine during the days, but at night and early in the mornings I was homesick for the boys. They were in great hands, Nana & Papa stayed two nights with them and Grandma & Papa finished out the last part.
This was the view on our beach. Due to Irene the beaches were not crowded at all.
I spent many hours here!
We made several trips over to Paradise Island (home of Atlantis) and visited the ca
sino and walked around the property of the hotel. It is an amazing place. Hopefully one day soon we will take the kids back to visit.
What an AWESOME trip to take with James. I love him so much, here's to many more years of happiness. I love you James David Kelly!!!
