breakfast with mr. & mrs. claus

my sweet friend jamie had a breakfast with santa (her parents // madden's grandparents) and mrs. claus at her house. it was so much fun to see all the different reactions to them.
i may or may not have whispered some 'things' to tell santa were on her list. i tried to get her to ask for a pink princess dress because i may or may not know what santa has up his sleeve. instead she asked for a pink tutu. hopefully those two things look the same in her mind. ;-) huck just sat on santa's lap like it was no big deal. highly unimpressed. he may or may not get that from his mama.

Harp and Huck's fun inside

the day before we left for knoxville for thanksgiving we were stuck inside again. what better thing to do than to pull a mattress out of the closet and jump on it. duh. don't be fooled by harper - she LOVED this and still asks to do it over and over.
this is what huck was doing while harper was running around like a wild banchee.

4 Little Monkeys

This is what a playdate looks like with four 2 year olds.
embrace the chaos!

funny faces

we have been making lots of funny faces these days. harper pulls some really good ones out of her bag of tricks. not sure exactly where she gets them from. she is not short of personality (her nickname the last couple of weeks has been ms. bossy pants...that is pretty much all she does is try to boss people around). i had to throw in one of huck too. i think he gets that face from me. maybe i do that too much actually. that's the "you can't be serious face". ;-)

trick or treat

harper and her best good friend madden - excuse me, jesse and the red power ranger went trick or treating in our neighborhood. such a cute pair those two. huck wasn't all that impressed with it all. he made it very clear he would rather be at home getting ready for bed. there's always next year for that little stinker (PUN INTENDED).

huck gets a hair cut

i can't believe our 8 month old needed a hair cut. yes...8 month old. i feel like i should call Guinness book just to make sure he shouldn't go down in the history books. i thought i was going to be emotional, but i wasn't. i'm sure he was so sick of having hair in his eyes. david did such a good job. keeping an 8 month old still is slightly impossible.
he is looking so dapper now!

stuck inside on a rainy day

i know i only post videos of huck laughing...but it gets me everytime. it rained ALL DAY yesterday. ALL DAY. so we were stuck inside ALL DAY. you gotta get creative. huck was laughing at harper playing a stop and go game. not sure why it was so funny, but this was the hardest i have ever seen him laugh.
and we played a lot of dress up yesterday too.
she told me she was princess tutu. sounds like royalty to me.
this is her bored face.

we went to a bunch of fall festivals the last couple weekends. or 'festibals' as they are newly named in our house. harper still asks to go to the festibal.
i wish we had taken a picture of how beautiful this tree is. it is a MASSIVE tree right next to this historic mansion and it is bright orange and bright red. it is so amazing.
harper was doing her best 'princess cowgirl wave' as directed by the lady guiding the pony. after all these pony rides she has been taking lately, i'm a little nervous that she is going to ask one of her grandparents for a pony one day (and they just may say yes).
poor huck was taking a nap when we took this picture. i'm kicking myself for not getting a picture of all of us, but this was at windy gap. david spoke on his first weekend camp there a couple weekends ago. of course he did amazingly. duh.

Huck gets baptized

forgive me for going back in time on some of these things...but it has been a little bit busy at our house. huck got baptized a couple weekends ago. i found myself very emotional standing up on stage with family and close friends in the hope that our little man will walk a long life with jesus. our church praying for him as a body is unreal. thank you family, friends and church for being apart of it and praying for huck. he is such a sweet one.
is there a cutier little boy out there? probably not
having a celebratory lunch!
