Fall fun

The boys favorite spot at Sunny& Papa's
Coaxed Brian into carving a Jack o lantern

Finally old enough to like our swing

My sweet "Booger"
We had a great weekend. Spent most of Saturday at my parents watching the game(longhorns of course) and letting the boys play outside. They love the sandbox, even when it's full of leaves.
The boys begged Brian to carve a pumpkin. Of course, once Brian gave in and started carving, the boys were already in the other room watching TV...figures!! You can tell Brian's excitement by the picture above...LOL!
Lincoln is doing wonderful! Things get easier everyday. He's starting to be more content when he's awake and loves his bouncer and swing. He looks around and just coos and coos...the most precious sound ever. The newness of having a baby in the house has not worn off with the boys. They still beg to hold him and kiss him non-stop. The poor child never gets a moments peace. I guess I should be thankful that they love him and are not jealous. Now that things have settled down with the baby, I've tried to purposefully spend quality time with the boys. We are making a point of turning the TV off and playing games and toys as a family while Lincoln is asleep. It's so hard dividing my attention b/w three kids and a husband but I'm working at it. Brian is a HUGE help and I couldn't do any of it w/o him. Now...I've just got to figure out how in the world I'm going to do Christmas shopping this year!! Guess it's online looking this year!

Thanks for your comment - you are so sweet! Little Mr. Lincoln is such a cutie pie! I can't tell yet if he looks more like you or Brian. I guess he's the perfect combination of you both! I'm doing a lot of online Christmas shopping as well. It's just too easy!
