What's up!

Not a lot has been going on in the month of November, so far. I go back to work on November 28th so I am not looking forward to that. I really should not complain, I am only PRN and am going to work no more than once a week maybe less after the holidays. The New Moon movie is out in 2 weeks and I am so excited. I read all the books at the beginning of the year and saw the first movie. My mom read the books after me and saw the movie so we are both excited to go and see it. I turn into a teenage fan and can't wait to see the second movie. That's what I have to look forward to in the next couple of weeks. I can't wait for Thanksgiving... my cousin and his wife and their 2 kids are coming in from Houston and my mom in hosting it at her house. It should be a really good time and lots of yummy food. I think we are going to go down to White Bluff to the Tennison's that night and stay until Friday. Saturday will be my first day back to work so we can't stay the whole weekend :( I am going to decorate for christmas in the next couple of weeks and go ahead and get it up before Thanksgiving so we can enjoy it a little longer. Plus with 2 kids this year who knows how long it will take me to get it all up. I decorate quite a bit for the holiday so it takes me a whole weekend plus some to get it done. Scott is going to get the outside done this year weather he likes it or not. He has slacked off the last couple of years but this year Hay is old enough to enjoy it so it is getting done. Jack is changing every day and is so much more alert and aware of things. He actually looks at me when I talk to him and I know he wants to say something back or smile, not quite there yet. Hayden is as busy as ever and I am trying to get her in a mothers day out starting after the holidays. She needs the interaction and I need a free couple of days off. We will see, if not this spring then we will do it summer or next fall. I have two full weekends left before work starts so I hope to just enjoy my little family and spend some QT with them. Not much of a weekend so update later. Hope everyone has a good week !!

Well it's about a week late but here is Jack's 1 month picture. I didn't keep up with these very well with Hayden so I am going to try with Jack. He is such a sweet baby. He is so laid back and such a blessing to our family. When I was pregnant with him I couldn't imagine loving another child as much as I love Hayden but as everyone told me you will and it's true. Our hearts just grew and you feel the same about #2 as you do your first. He is more like 5 weeks now and nurses every 3 hours during the day and at night will go 4 hours sometimes. I am ok with that because being that he was a premie he can eat all he wants and pack on the pounds. He really is filling out and I can't wait to see what he weighs at his 2 month check up. Life with 2 is hectic but so much fun. I haven't taken him out much because I don't want to expose him with all this H1N1 going around. It's just not worth it to me. Hayden got the flu when she was 4 months old and I am not going through that again. There is nothing worse than watching your little baby be poked and prodded and things shoved down her nose and held down for xray. No way! I will not go through that again. Anyway, off on that tangent. We are loving life. I go back to work the weekend after Thanksgiving and I am sad but excited to get back to normal. We are pretty sure that we are done with 2 kids since we have our girl and boy. I am just excited to get into a routine again and enjoy life with these 2 angels. I am so looking forward to the holidays. Hayden is much more aware of Santa this year so it should be really fun. I have more fall pics that I will post later.

Trick or Treat

Her haul!
Tinkerbell eating a sucker when we got home
"Trick or Tweet"

This was Hayden's third Halloween but second to go trick or treating. We took her last year but she didn't obviously get the concept since she was just barely 1. This year she had more fun and kept saying one more house and then when we rang the doorbell she would yell "trick or tweet". She was so cute. She dressed up as Tinkerbell and loved her wings and her flower in her hair. It was fun for daddy and mama too because we have candy to eat. Yay! Nana and Papa watched Jack for us so we could stay out a while and really let Hayden enjoy it.
