Happy Halloweenie!!

We had a great Halloween night.  Colton dressed up like a clown and Chase was a turtle, which was Colton's his first Halloween.  One of my friends that grew up in the same neighborhood I did in TN lives up here with her husband and two boys.  They invited us over for hot dogs, chili, and trick-or-treating in their neighborhood, since we are still in the apartment.  Thank you so much, Melissa, Mike, Elliott, and Emory for including us in your festivities.  It was so good to hear another Southern voice.  

Watch out for the snapping turtle!

Ready to go.

Chase's Birthday - Part 2

Casey's parents came in for the weekend to celebrate Chase's birthday and to see Colt.  So, we put his shirt and hat back on and had his birthday - round 2.  He still hated the hat and still loved the cake.  Thanks Nana and Papaw for coming to visit.

Fall Hike

Saturday was a beautiful day, so we went to a town South of where Casey works and climbed Barn Bluff.  It was really pretty at the top and you could see the Fall trees.  I was really proud of Colton.  He walked all the way up and down the bluff by himself.  Chase even walked a little ways, but needed a little help from Papaw and Daddy.  You can also see from the pictures that no one told me we were planning on hiking up a hill, so I had on flip-flops.  Thanks, guys!!!

Chase's 1st Birthday

Chase's 1st birthday was on Monday.  I can't believe how the year has flown, but yet, it feels like we have been a family of four for forever.  We can't imagine our life without him.  I love watching him watch Colton.  He loves his big brother so much.  We love you Chasey bug.
My mom and dad flew in for his birthday. The first time on an airplane for my mom!!!  We were hoping we weren't going to be in the apartment, still, for his party, but we hadn't found a house, yet. Oh well, it made it cozy.  We can't wait for Casey's parents to come this weekend so we can celebrate again and eat more cake!!!

Happy boy even though he had an ear infection.

My mom had to hold the string in the back of his hat, so we could take some pictures.  He hates anything on his head.

Of course, big brother had to help him with his cake.
Family picture attempts.

Cute cake he thought he was supposed to eat from Uncle Chris and Aunt Dee Dee.
