This weekend my project at hand was to make cookies for my second "client." Okay, it is a friend of my mom's who gave me a little boost in my new "business" and she requested pumpkins and turkeys for Thanksgiving. Having never made either before this is how they turned it....hope she is a satisfied customer. Ashton was right on hand to act as my official taste tester. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

So Ashton took his first big trip with his Daddy off to Midland to spend a few days with his Grandparents while Casey goes hunting. They flew out on Friday and are not coming home to me until Wednesday which feels like an eternity! I am so thankful that Ashton gets to spend some quality time with all of Casey's family and I know he has a wonderful time every minute he gets to spend with them but this is the longest time I have not seen my sweet baby boy. I really am missing both of my boys! Can you blame me when you look at this sweet face? Oh Wednesday can't get here fast enough!

Ashton had a great time going trick or treating this year and it really was the first year he seemed to enjoy going to houses and letting people give him candy. He was so excited he kept bringing both is orange and purple pumpkin to the doors trying to be sneaky to get double the loot! When it was all over he loved dumping his candy out on the floor and picking out the candy he wanted....his choice...DOTS! Apparently chocolate doesn't do it for him. We had a great time and look forward to many more Halloweens to come.

This weekend Casey and I had the pleasure of hosting a baby shower for our dear friend's Patrick and Christi who are expecting their first daughter, Luci in December. We had a great time gathering to celebrate Luci upcoming arrival while watching the Texas/O.U. game. And yes...I am still an Aggie through and through but being married to a Longhorn I was happy to see them win. Posey did a fantastic job with the decoration turn her house into "Patrick and Christi's Sweet Shop" and even made a special drink, the "Lucitini" for the guest of honor. Overall I think the shower was a sucess and there wasn't any food left which is always a good thing. I also got to practice a little more on my labor of love (cookie making) and got to decorate some baby carriages, bottles and even a few longhorns. Now we just can't wait to meet Ms. Luci

This weekend Ashton was invited to a Birthday party at the zoo and had a great time! While Mommy was running the Race for the Cure with thousands and thousands of other people, Ashton and Daddy were busy getting close to goats, Lions, Tigers and Bears.
A couple weekends ago Casey's parents came to visit for a few days. Ashton had a great time hanging out with "Molly & Grandpa." Ashton is so lucky to grandparents who don't mind getting on the ground (literally) and doing whatever Ashton wants to do. (That goes for both sets of grandparents by the way) They went for bike and wagon rides, colored with sidewalk chalk, and played in Ashton's inflatable bounce house. We always have a great time when they come to visit and look forward to the next time.

We all gathered to celebrate my dad's 59th Birthday on Sunday. Thanks Mom for cooking a wonderful meal...fresh shrimp cocktails and two kinds of gumbo to please everyone! Delicious! We had a great time and Ashton loved helping Mo open his gifts and of course eat his Birthday cookies!

This weekend Casey's mom and grandma came to visit and were nice enough to keep Ashton on Saturday while Casey and I went to a wedding in San Antonio for the day/night. Ashton had a wonderful time with both of his grandma's (Molly and GiGi)....from going to the zoo and playing at the park he was all smiles. Molly also brought Ashton some new pajamas that I just think are adorable....we now have our own Superman complete with a cape and all!

Well apparently I am not very good at updating this as regularly as I had hoped. I will try to get better! Casey, Ashton and I had a great weekend at the lake with Mo and Mimi. Ashton was right there to help Mo fix the lawnmower, share his crayons, model his new sun glasses and snuggle up with Mimi at night.

Now that Ashton has finally developed a taste for Chicken (this is huge considering he would spit out every piece of meat we have ever tried), we decided to let him experience his first official Happy Meal. He loved the chicken nuggets but passed on the fries this time...don't worry, the dog was right there to help out with any leftovers.
