Thankful for Family

Every Thanksgiving we head to Jackson to spend time with the Krutz family.  With it being so busy at the beach we never can go for very long.  It was a short trip but a lot of fun.  Not only did we get to celebrate Thanksgiving with the family but we also got to be there for Patrick's first birthday.
Barron and Patrick had a lot of fun playing with each other.

I think their favorite toy ended up being a phone (even pretend ones).

On Wednesday Patrick turned one.  Cherry made a Cookie Monster cake and then we opened presents.

It was a little hard for Barron to realize the presents were not all for him!

Thanksgiving day the men helped out with entertaining the boys while the women cooked.  They decided to play videos for them on Cole's computer.

Then Bryan and Patrick got a little side-tracked and shooted out to the hot tub.  Must be nice!

Like always we had great wine with great food!

Before we left I decided we had to get the boys in the tub together.

But I think Rebecca and I had more fun watching them than they did playing.

Sorry for the long post, just a lot to cover.  Happy Holidays!!!

Football and Popcorn...A perfect match.

Bryan loves to make popcorn when he is watching football.  So when we are home that usually means he will have it both Saturday and Sunday.  Now Bryan is having to share that popcorn.

Popcorn has now become one of Barron's favorite snacks.  It is amazing how much can fit in that little body.

We are traveling to Bryan's parents house on Tuesday for Thanksgiving.  Hopefully Barron will be sweet and not pick on any of them like he did Papa last weekend.  Here we are trying to gauge his eyes...

And here we are pulling the hair...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Halloween 2009

Halloween is such a fun time around here.  Friday night the adults went to Alys Beach for what is becoming the "party of the year" here on 30A.  Bryan's Aunt Emily and cousin Anne Elizabeth were sweet enough to stay with Barron so we could have a big night out.
Here are Bryan and I as Betty and Barney Rubble...

On Saturday we let Barron do the dressing up.  It was hard for us to decide what Barron was going to be for Halloween.  Bryan helped me and we thought it was the perfect outfit.  We decided on an elephant!

Unfortunately, when we were picking it out we were not thinking about it being the Alabama mascot!  Bryan got a lot of slack for it.  Barron was even called Big Al...yuck!  We will definitely keep in mind other school's mascots from here on out.  For most of the night Barron was trying to take off the head piece...

We got to see a lot of Barron's friends but he would not be still long enough to take pictures with them.  He did enjoy seeing his older buddy, Fordham, as Spider Man.

What a fun weekend.  We already can't wait until next year!
