We have been enjoying the great fall weather lately. Parker asks me to rake up the leaves so we can jump in them. Its been a fun activity for us.
Nixon is the boss at our house. When he points his fist and screams people listen. He definitely isn't a push over. He will let you know how he feels. I think this is a good characteristic for the second child, even if it sometimes hurts our ears.
This is my dad. He installed a fan in our bathroom over the weekend and Parker was his big helper. He could follow my dad around for hours and loves his tools.
On Halloween Parker and Nathan carved a pumpkin. Parker was so excited to put a face on his pumpkin.

This was the end result. Its blurry because I took a bad picture. It looked really good in real life. We've never made pumpkins like this before and I think we will have to start making it a tradition!
And we have two big announcements!! Nixon took his first step today! It happened at my parents house so I will have to take pictures tomorrow. And Parker is potty trained. After he uses the bathroom he usually runs circles around the front room dining room and kitchen until I can catch him. This is my view for a few min!! He thinks he is so funny!!!
Nathan promised Parker Lego's after he went number 2 twice in the toilet. And not those baby duplo's either(which would have been easier to clean up). Real live Lego's. And the had a deal going where we got a free Lego city tractor. Parker loves them! I can't believe my baby is potty trained.
Tomorrow its supposed to snow. Bring it on!!! This family welcomes the white stuff and Parker has been asking for a month now, Can it snow yet? I hope we wake up to it on our lawn but I'm not going to hold my breath.

I'm so proud of Parker way to go buddy! We have the white stuff he can join Olivia who at the first flake wanted to be out in it. Unlike me I don't like it and wish it would only come the days i want it.

I was just thinking of you Celiece so had to write you a note. I'm attempting a race track cake for Tayson's b-day tomorrow. The directions say to make 2 round cakes. I was thinking shoot I don't have round cake pans. But then I remembered the black cookware from Celiece! We have yet to live in a house with a kitchen big enough to have out all our kitchen ware but I just looked in the storage box and found them! I'm sure you could have taken them back to a store to get something different for you guys, but no, you gave them to us because you're super nice like that. So basically I just wanted to say thanks again! You saved me.

Oh, and your boys are TOO cute!!
