i know andrew has no idea whats going on or won't even remember for that matter but being santa and watching him experience christmas things for the first time is going to make my heart explode! 
here are some photos of putting up the lights below!

leaves and leaves and more leaves!

last weekend we raked up all our leaves and my goodness we had SO many. 
it was a fun little family activity and it was a nice lovely sunny day and i don't think we're going to get many of those soon... gotta get all the vitamin d we can! ha 
brandon was raking and he got stung by a wasp. poor hubby. 
andrew was all about the leaves... he even thought they tasted good. ;)
and ps. i was the one who started raking up the leaves and started the pile but no picture to prove it. 
ha in other words i did help and i didn't just stand there taking pictures. ha! 
^^the moment he got stung by the wasp. ouch!^^
^^such a smiley baby and i mean those blue eyes!^^
^^what a little turkey... was smiling for me then turned into a total cheesier. i could eat him.^^
i spy a little baby in the leaves! 
happy few days of fall left!

autumn really is the prettiest.
this was one autumn day and the colors were just to good so we snapped a few photos. 
^^andrew's been really interested in animals lately and he was all about this horse. he was so amazed by it! it's such a neat thing to watch your children notice and experience things for the first time!^^
^^looooooved that horse. when we were taking pictures in the field the horse was running in front and he thought it was the best thing ever!^^
^^i'm thankful for these two boys in my life... love them so.^^
^^my little angel. i love you andrew!^^
^^dad's are just so much more fun than mama's.^^
he's our world and as you can tell he's super thrilled out about it. ha!

brandon's 29th birthday!!!

hubby turned 29!!!! 
we celebrated for a couple days and it was lovely! 
sunday the day before his birthday we celebrated by going to his mama's and having one of brandon's favorite dinner meals... ribs! they were sooo good and had birthday dessert! 
later in the evening my family came over and had cake and ice cream to celebrate his birthday! 
he is so loved by each family! 
monday was his real birthday and originally we weren't going to see him at all on his birthday since he had work and had to go straight to school but he was lucky enough to get the morning off on his birthday. he slept in and then woke up opened a few presents 
then i cooked him his favorite breakfast.. biscuits and gravy. 
andrew then went down for a nap and all brandon wanted to do was to relax. 
so brandon and i watched a movie! after that the fun had to end and he went to work and school. 
on tuesday we went to tepanyaki. that place is amazing. andrew came with us. where we go, he goes. 
we didn't know how he would act there and he was totally amazed the whole time. we sat by 2 older couples who looked the age of grandparents and instead of everyone watching the chef cook, everyone was watching andrew. the older couples kept saying "look andrew... watch andrew!" it was so sweet and the chef even cooked andrew his own bowl of rice! ha ha 
 all brandon wanted for his birthday was a new phone so he got that and he was a happy boy. 
brandon i hope you had the best birthday and can't believe next year you're 30!!! 
so old... haha love you.
