Kroger fun

Who needs veggies when you have a yummy donut, right g-grandpa jim?



Kroger had a Halloween event on Friday night and it was F-U-N! There was a scavenger hunt down all the aisles, all sorts of games, a costume contest and goodies everywhere.

Trick or Treat

We took Austin trick or treating down our street tonight while Grandpa G passed out candy. He really did have fun and got the hang of it by the time we made it to the end of the street.

Fall Photo Shoot


If any of you remember last year we tried really hard to get the perfect fall photo and Grandma and Grandpa G's house. The problem was Austin was only 2 months old and obviously couldnt sit up on his own. If you have forgotten just click HERE

Warren Trunk or Treat

On Friday we took part in Warren's trunk or treat with my parents and had a blast. There were about 1000 kids go trunk treating and we took Austin around to take part in the fun.

What a cutie, brushing his teeth instead of eating candy.
Crazy, arent we?
Sorry Grandma Jo that you didnt make the pictures, you are VERY important too!

Stand and Spin!

Austin LOVES his Sit and Spin that he got for his Birthday....

The only thing is he much prefers the "Stand and Spin" version


Proud to be a Chippewa!
Also, check out his new "slipper" socks. Now that its getting cold we need to cover his feet, but he slips all over the wood floors so I found these socks with grips on the bottom, cute or what?

A date

Austin and I went on a date the other night, just the two of us. He was quite the gentleman and actually made me a little sad how "grown up" he is becoming.

Enjoying his burger bun.

Helping himself to some french fries.

Drinking out of his own cup...who needs a sippy anymore?

Better keep the chicks away from this cool cat...

TV Kart

Grandpa G splurged and let Austin drive the TV Kart at Meijer this weekend. Austin loved it and watched Bob the Builder and Barney while we walked all around.

Halloween Preview



Watercan man!

Austin LOVED helping Grandpa water the flowers this summer and this was one of my favorite pictures that I kept forgetting to post on the blog!

Photo Shoot- Attempt 1

If anyone remembers from last year, we did our darnedest to take a good photo shoot with Austin in the "fall set up." This was difficult because Austin was only 2 months up and obviously not sitting up so Grandma Jo was in the background hiding holding him up. This year has challenges of its own as Austin is a free man and much too busy to just sit and take a picture. Below is how successful the shoot went.
This is the closest he would get and he would NOT let go of the broom!

...and the driveway!
Tired, time for a nap.
