Trick or Treat

We spent Halloween in Clarksdale this year and had so much fun! Tyner was Spider Man and Maggie was a pumpkin fairy. First, we stopped by the Flowers to say Happy Halloween. Ann Gray was Big Bird. As you can see in the picture, Maggie was a little scared of Big Bird! Next, we went trick or treating with our cousins Anna Carson and Chloe! Last, we went to Matthew and Margaret Downings house. We all loaded up in the back of Steve's truck and took all the children to trick or treat! We had a fire fighter, 2 spider men, a mermaid, a skeleton, a pumpkin fairy and a dalmation! They were all precious. Mary Margaret, Anne Clark and I sang Camp Soaring Hawk songs to the kids while riding around in the truck. It was great! And all the kids had a blast!

Shelby Bike Trail

I got an exciting phone call Monday morning from Hunter. He said he was going to take off early from work so he could go do something with the kids. I was thrilled and the kids were, too. We have a great park and bike trail right down the street from our house. So, we all loaded up with bikes, strollers, etc... and headed to the bike trail! It also runs along the Cumberland River so it is a beautiful view! Anyway, it was so much fun and very special having Daddy with us on our afternoon adventure. Tyner was moving too fast on his bike for me to get any pictures of him but I got several of our delicate little girl!

Playing with Emma-Kate and Noble Lucius

We took a last minute trip to Olive Branch to spend the night with Emma-Kate and Noble! We had so much fun. It is just precious watching our children play. They turned the Lucius house upside down in no time, but it was hilarious watching Emma-Kate and Tyner play! And Maggie loved Noble! At one point she was sitting in his lap with her arms wrapped around him. We took them to the zoo and of course that was such a treat! I am so blessed by my sweet friend Amy Lauren and so thankful for the special friendship that we share!

This is a video of Tyner telling Emma-Kate and Noble bye!

The Pumpkin Patch

We had a great time at the Pumpkin Patch today. First, we went to this great little "pour your own pancake" place called the "Pfunky Griddle." Then we headed to Nolensville to Walden Farms to pick out our HUGE pumpkin and enjoy all the fun and games they have. We petted numerous animals, played with trucks, and picked out our pumpkin! The kids had so much fun!

Life at Moon Lake

While we were in Oxford my parents kept Tyner and Maggie. They always have so much fun and are entertained from the time they wake up until the time they go to bed! My mom just does activity after activity. When I talked to her on Sunday morning they were about to carve the pumpkin. After that they went riding in the wagon. When Hunter and I arrived to pick them up they were roasting marshmellows in the chiminea! People are always asking me "How do your parents like living at the lake?" Well, by looking at the picture of them roasting their hotdogs in the chiminea I would say they love this "country" way of life!

Fun with Friends!

Amy Lauren, Anna, and I had so much fun together in Oxford. We stayed at Amy Lauren's grandparents house that was just wonderful! It is so much fun catching up with old friends. We laughed the entire weekend and all the boys had a great time together too!! I can't wait to do it again! I have been blessed with such dear friends and am so thankful for the fun time that we had!!

Our new helmet!

I took Tyner to Target to get a helmet to wear when he is riding his bike! Well, anytime Tyner gets something new he keeps it very close to his side. When we got home from Target with his new helmet I had to send Hunter to the grocery store to get something. Well, Tyner wanted to go but do you really think he was going to take his NEW helmet off?!! I don't think so. Well, off my two boys went to the grocery store and one with his helmet on. Hunter said it was hysterical watching everyone look at him in the store. When Tyner woke up the next morning what do you think was the first thing he wanted to do? You guessed it! He wanted to wear his helmet. So, with helmet on head he got in the bed with Hunter and turned on his t.v. show. Daddy even took a turn wearing the NEW helmet!!

Verse of the Week

Our verse this week is Luke 2:9-11. "An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a SAvior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.

Biblical Virtues to pray for my children

"God, please cultivate in Tyner and Maggie the ability to show true humility toward all."
