For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my petition that I made to him. 1 Samuel 1:27

Picking Pumpkins

We had a great weekend!  Sean had to work Saturday, so the boys and I slept in (6:45) and then cleaned the house so we could spend the rest of the weekend with Daddy.  We spent Saturday afternoon outside, and Nana came over for a visit.  Then we watched the best football game of the season.  Go Vols!  At one point, Sam told Sean that the Vols were wrestling.  It was cute.  We spent more time outside this afternoon, and then went to Johnny's to get a few pumpkins.  The boys had a blast!  At one point, Sam said, "I love these pumpkins.  I need them."

We are usually winding down about this time, but we are so excited.  Tomorrow, we find out if baby #3 is a boy or girl.  We are just excited to see him or her, and we can't wait to see Sam's reaction.

And a few things on Luke before I forget:
  • He is saying lots of new words now: flashlight, bath, out (especially when we catch him playing in the bathroom), ball, balloon, milk, baby
  • He points to his eyes, ears, nose, and mouth when asked where they are.
  • He points to his pwn belly and says, "Baby." 
  • He takes things out of Sam's hands and runs down the hall away from him.
  • He still climbs out of his bed.  Most of the time, he comes in the den or bedroom where we are and acts like he's supposed to be walking around.  Other times he tries to play in his room.

Sam fell asleep in the car on the way to get pumpkins.  He had his safety goggles on.

Sam is really into playing the piano and singing.

Little Hands, Big Trucks

We just ended another great weekend around here.  The weather was a little dreary at times, but it was nice that it finally felt like fall.  The big event of the weekend was Little Hands, Big Trucks. Sean had to work yesterday morning, so the kids and I met up with him.  They had the best time. Luke was so little last year that he didn't remember, but he had a blast this year!  They got on just about every tractor, big rig, backhoe, and even operated a crane.  Other than that, we laid low and let the boys play outside.  Sean made homemade chicken noodle soup for supper, and it was the perfect ending to this weekend.

Nanny's 90th Birthday

Nanny turned 90 today, and we had a big celebration in Jackson yesterday.  It was so much fun.  We played Nanny trivia.  Ted took a family picture.  We told Nanny stories. We ate barbecue under the tent.  We gave Nanny a wordle.  And the Laney Vaughans danced.  It was quite the show, and the whole day was a day to remember.  Unfortunately, I missed some of it because I was chasing Luke around.  And I left my memory card at home.  So I only have pictures from my phone.  Thankfully, Ted took some, and we'll have those soon.

Sam and Luke had a big time.  They got lots of attention from Ci Ci and Paul.  They were obsessed with all of the balloons.  And Luke spent A LOT of time in the dirt!

Weekend with Pop and Linda

We had THE BEST weekend with Pop and Linda.  They came down Friday night and left this morning.  We ate good food, had a delicious cake from Memphis, swam in the hotel pool and hot tub, watched Tennessee win, and loved on our boys.  It was so much fun having them here.  They boys are asking for them to come back already.
