This is Ashland's weekend in pictures. He spent the weekend with his Papaw and Nini, where he had a blast. He passed out less than 10 minutes after we left there house. He sure loves his Tubby (that's the bear he's sleeping with)

We carved pumpkins when we got home on Sunday evening. I talked Ashland into sticking his hand into the pumpkin, as you can see. But, as you can also see, he wasn't a big fan of that idea.
Enjoy the pictures and look back in a week for another update. We've been pretty good at doing it weekly, again. Sorry for the lack of posts over the last couple of months!

It's snowing!

That's not cottonwood on those two SUVs...that's SNOW! It was snowing this morning when we woke up. If you look closesly, you can see that it's only really on the truck that obviously hasn't been driven anywhere yet this morning. We only got a very little bit, and it's definitely not warm enough to stick to the ground yet. It was a nice surprise, however, to wake up this morning and see it on the cars :-)

We got our pumpkins this weekend :-) Just in time, because we didn't know there was SNOW in the forecast. We will be carving them this coming weekend. Ashland had to pick up every small pumpkin he saw to see if it was the right one. Unfortunately, this one was still pretty green, so we left him at the orchard. We picked out three perfect pumpkins :-)

Finally, Ashland has accomplished his ABC's and counting to 15. He is absolutly amazing. I realized the other day that I have no had to buy diapers in over a month...and I've still got a month supply at home! Horray no diaper buying! He still sleeps in them at night, but he's always dry in the morning. He hasn't had a wet diaper in the morning in over two weeks! I just have a feeling that when I let him sleep in big boy undies we're gong to all be woken up in the middle of the night because of a wet bed. Our baby boy is growing up, so fast!

Worn out...

We went to Trine's homecoming football game on Saturday and Ashland was SO well behaved. He sat on my lap or in his stroller the whole game. He got enough courage to give the Thunder mascot, STORM, a high five, and then a hug, and he ate popcorn and cake at a party after the game. He also won the game ball which was really neat. We'll have to put pictures of that up sometime.

After the Trine game we came home and played and watched the N.D game. Ashland loves watching football, and if he would rather sit with Mom and Dad and watch football, than play with his toys, that's fine, because he plays all day everyday.

AT gave us a pretty good scare this weekend. After not having a nap on Saturday, he was quite emotional when I asked him to not jump on the couch. When he was crying, he held his breath like all little kids do before they let out a giant wail...except, he didn't stop holding his breath. His lips turned blue and he fell over on top of the dog. Yes, he held his breath so long that he passed out. It was a scary moment...As soon as he fell he was okay...If it wasn't for Tyler I would have been freaking out more than I was. Seeing your child fall because they can't breath is scary....and nobody ever warned me that it would happen.

We hope that everyone is enjoying this beautful weekend. Next weekend we will be going to the pumpkin patch to get pumpkins for halloween. We will post pictures of that trip :-) Keep warm, everyone :-)
