Catching Up!

I need to apologize for not posting in the last 23 days! We have been busy, but not to busy! Well, let me try to catch everyone up!
We are done with football :( We made it two rounds deep in the playoffs, so we can't complain! The Belton Tigers played so hard this season, and we are all very proud of them! Peter has began working on the workouts for off season/power lifting! He is looking forward to the boys working out!
Jackson had his pictures taken from Candy Rice. I coach Candy's little girl when I coached at Heart of Texas. It was so good to see her, and she was amazing with Jackson. I can hardly wait to see the pictures next Thursday! He wore his Belton Tiger shirt for some. With those pictures we put a football in and a Belton helmet. For some of the others he wore his Halloween outfit, the cowboy outfit! I will let you know how you can view the pictures on-line as soon as I go to the proofing!
Jackson is starting to get a little TO brave! He is starting to pull up. He can pull up to his knees like a pro and working on getting up to his feet. He has fallen a few times. He thinks that he can just let go and stand on his own...he finds out pretty quick that he can't do that yet. He is moving everywhere. Where ever he wants to go, he goes. He stays in the kitchen while I'm cooking. Makes me a little nervous, but I usually let him pull out all the Tupperware and that keeps him back from the stove. He and Ella are the best of friends. Ella takes care of Jackson, keeps him from getting into some things and then helps him get in to things at times. Jackson is learning to throw the ball...I'm not kidding!!!! He throws it and she gets it and puts in back in his lap! It is the cutest thing!
Well, I haven't done the greatest job catching you up...but I'm falling asleep! I have to get everything clean and ready for Thanksgiving family tomorrow morning. More to come!

The first exciting thing that I need to announce is that....We WON our game on Thursday night against Temple! Belton Tigers are 8-1, and if we play well this Friday night we will be district champs! We are going to the playoffs, which is the first time since 03 that Belton has gone! It is an exciting time here in Belton! Ready to play Bryan on Friday...well I guess we should let the boys get ready first!

Saturday night we went over the Morgans for sausage wrap and lots of fun! We took the kids trick or treating in their wonderful neighborhood! Then we went back in and had a blast just getting to visit. The cookies below are what I took to share. We brought nothing home except the platter, which I'm very thankful for!

If you haven't been able to tell, Jackson was a cowboy. My mom and aunt got him this outfit I believe before he was born and I have been waiting for him to be able to wear it! I thought that he would be able to wear it now and that it would be huge on him, so that way he could wear it for his birthday...but no such luck! I'm having to call tomorrow to make an appointment for pictures before he grows out of it!!!

He is quite the ham is some of the pictures. It is like he knows now what to do when there is a camera! He loves to get his picture taken!

He is really starting to laugh on his own now...without being tickled or being played with. We were sitting outside this afternoon on the quilt watching Ella run around like a chicken with its head cut off and he just starts belly laughing at her. It was the cutest thing! He has a contagious laugh...and the greatest smile in the whole world!

He is army crawling like a pro now and is up on all fours and will take a couple of crawls on his hands and knees...but figures out he can get there much faster like an army man! I'm having to pick things up that he can't have...his favorite is the dog bone! Let the baby proofing begin!!! He is starting to get so fun...not that he wasn't fun before...but he is getting his own personality, fits and all!

Its a little short tonight, but this time change is killing me! So, I'm heading to bed to get some extra rest! Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
