My Little Turkey

My little turkey brought this home from school today and I love it!!!!

Whistlestop Weekend

Last weekend my friend Tina and I took our kids to the Adventure Science Museum.  Neither one of us had ever been and we loved it.  It was a GREAT place for the kids.  Both Luke and Cain especially liked it this particular weekend because it was 'Whistlestop Weekend' and they had model trains set up everywhere.

I don't think Cain knew what to do with himself after seeing so many trains at once.  He was in heaven!! I think I heard him say "Thomas" no less than a 500 times.  He called every train he saw "Thomas".  He was seriously yelling with excitement.  

Besides loving all the trains, the boys loved all the other things to do at the Adventure Science Museum. They loved the slides, the games, and Cain really liked playing/pretending to drive the ambulance.

I could not believe Cain went down this big slide all by himself.  I went with him the first time and after that he wanted to do it all alone.   
"Okay mom...I've had fun but can we go now??"

Play-dates with friends

Cain has recently had several play-dates with his little friends.  Cain stays pretty busy during the week with MDO on Monday and Wednesday's, speech on Tuesday's and music class on Thursday's.  So that usually leaves us Fridays or the afternoons after his MDO to meet up with friends.  We've recently tried to meet up with Cain's friends as much as we can on Friday's when we have nothing else scheduled.

We've mostly been going to Monkey's Treehouse which is an indoor play area that Cain really seems to like a lot.  I even decided to book his 3rd birthday party there.

I tried to get a picture of Cain, Callie, Preston & Piper but as you can see that didn't go so well.

I remember just last year being so nervous about having Cain in play areas like this.  I was terrified of germs and of Cain getting sick.  Don't get me is something I'm still nervous about but I'm so happy that I've relaxed a little and don't seem to be as nervous as I was just a year ago.

Halloween 2011

I'm still trying to catch up from Halloween so this should finally be the last of our Halloween pictures.

We had a great time at our friends, Benson & Allison's, house again this year.  Benson makes a great hayride for all the kids and takes us around the neighborhood so the kids can do a little trick-or-treating.  Everyone dresses up including all the parents which makes it even more fun.

Trunk or Treat

On Sunday evening my friend Lacey came over and we took the kids to Trunk or Treat at the church where Cain attend's Mother's Day Out.  We tried to get a picture of everyone together before we left the house but as you can see that did not turn out as well as we had hoped.  

I just love how Callie is looking at Cain like "what in the world are you crying about?"

It is so neat that Lacey lives in Nashville now.  Our parents were best friends when we were Cain & Callie's age and we all lived the tiny town of Winnfield, LA.  Ironically, now Lacey & I both live in Nashville and our kids are getting to grow up together.  Completely crazy how that has happened.

Trunk or Treat turned out to be just the right size for our little kiddo's.
