Our Weekend

Friday was Nick's birthday.

(Haha. Sorry- no pics of the birthday boy here. I just thought Reagan looked like such a big boy!)

That night we went out to dinner to celebrate and then came home to open gifts.

Reagan had quite the time picking out a gift for his daddy. He was sooo sure Nick needed some new Mater toys from Cars 2. That caused quite the scene at Target, let me tell you. Picture me trying to reason with him on the floor (as he was having a melt down) that Mater is more of a Reagan toy, not a daddy toy. He ended up choosing the new Pirates of the Carrabean movie. I dont even know if Nick is interested in seeing it , but at that point I didn't care!

I got Nick a 3 hour horse ride. Yep. Wife of the year.  My husband was born in Montana although he lived most of his life here in Arizona.  He thinks deep down he is a cowboy. It's pretty hilarious.  And if you know me, I'm not exactly Miss Nature.  I've been on a horse like once. At a friend's birthday party in elementary school and I did not like it one bit.  So this is kinda a big deal. Next weekend we will ride horses for 1 1/2 to a sunset-steakhouse-dinner then ride an 1 1/2 back. Holy sore legs.

I bet you can't wait for those pictures, right?

Saturday we went to the ASU football game. We visited my sister and some friends at a tailgate first.  And then headed to the stadium to cheer on the Sun Devils.  They won and Reagan actually watched the game. A success!

Wanna hear something scary though? (Hope she doesn't kill me for blogging about it!) But my sister Meg, whos is due in January was in line for a water bottle at the game and totally fainted.  Girls- take care of yourself- especially if you are preggos! Drink water and eat enough food to keep you healthy during those hot games! Luckily some nice guys took her to the medics and they released her with a clear check.  I think she and the baby are fine, she was just a bit shaken up!

Today we went to get flu shots.  Reagan did a great job- no tears!  He was pretty excited for the lollipop. :) We then went to the neighborhood sports bar to eat lunch and cheer on the Arizona Cardinals. It was a crazy close game...we lost, but it's okay.

I'm really excited because I took tomorrow off work to go help at Reagan's class Halloween party. I can't believe Halloween is already here! It is going to be Christmas before we know it!!

Ps- super excited! I finally caved and ordered an Erin Condern planner. Thanks to all of you wonderful blog friends I got a smokin deal!

Halloween's Past

This will be Reagan's 3rd Halloween! How crazy is that?
The first one was really more for us.
He was just 6 months old and we dressed him up as a pumpkin.
No real trick or treating... just playing around and taking pictures!

Last year I let Reagan choose what he wanted to be. (He was 18 months.) 
He was very into Elmo (obviously- we did an Elmo birthday party that year too!)
 He still can't say Elmo, but instead just rolls his tongue.
 It's bizarre.
But cute.
 He trick or treated to the neighbors house but wasn't quite sure what the big deal was.

This year should be fun. 
 He has been practice trick or treating around the house with both of his old treat bags. 
Stay tuned to see what our little pumpkin will be this year!

3rd Annual Pumpkin Party

3 years ago I invited my family and a couple of friends over to eat yummy food and carve pumpkins. Last year we did it again with about double to people. And this year we did it again- with double that ! It was really fun.  I had girlfriends hanging out on the patio, talking all night. Their boyfriends and husbands talking sports and playing cornhole.  I had more friends carving pumpkins and getting dirty. ( Not my cup of tea- not a big pumpkin carver!) And I had tons of kids running around the backyard like crazy, little ants. But, boy was it fun.

Here are some pictures. I must admit, I was kinda slacking on the pictures last night.
Must have been talking too much!

Here is some of the Halloween decor around our house:

 Nick, Reagan, and I

 Reagan dancing with Aunt Meg

 We also sang to Nick. His 30th birthday is next week!

We had a great time!
Hope you and your families are enjoying this holiday season!
Such a fun time for friends and families.
