Buzz and Baby

My sister let us borrow a few of her kids old Halloween costumes. It's great because now I don't have to spend $50+ buying costumes! Audri will be wearing the butterfly costume, Carter will be a fireman, and Eli is Buzz Lightyear. It's fun because I've always called Eli my buzzbee. I think he looks super cute. You can see he's a very friendly, loving Buzz. (by the way, the thing that Carter is holding in his hands that is trailing down on the floor is his "whip", actually one of Audri's dress ties. He LOVES Indiana Jones right now, and had to add an Indiana Jones "whip" to his costume, so he was carrying that around. :-) )

Buzz wasn't very comfortable with all of this attention he was getting. He certainly wasn't about to wear the helmet that came with the costume. Believe me, I tried.

Looking for someone to rescue:

Nathan "sat" in his Bumbo for the first time last night! Uhhh, mom? Help me out a little here, please...
With a little help from mommy, he seemed to enjoy himself!

I love when he makes this face...

Watching (loud) brothers...

The two stooges.

Look at that gleam in his eye...

Lord help me.

Recent pictures

I've taken some pictures lately that I haven't gotten around to sharing yet. We've been busily occupying ourselves, settling into a new routine while daddy is at work. Things are going great!

Here is my silly girl out in our front yard one afternoon after school, I just love these:

And Carty McArthur...

Here are some recent pictures of little baldy-

Eli seems to be mellowing just a little...enough for me to finally get a couple shots of him and Nathan!

That's all I have time for now!

3 months

Nathan is a few days shy of being 3 months old. He's such a smily guy.

In other news, Big Daddy got a wonderful new job!!!!!! He starts on the 3rd, this coming Friday. We are so excited. Here he is with his new tools. Does he look happy at all??

Also, here are a few pictures from the trip when mom, dad, and Ryan came to visit. It was a wonderful trip. We went on a beautiful hike in the mountains together, and had lots of fun just being together.

These pictures were all taken in the last 2 days.

I am absolutely smitten.
