Many of you noticed that I removed the post about my pregnancy. I appreciate the calls and emails, who knew so many of my IRL peeps read my ole blog!! First, I am still pregnant and everything seems to be moving right along. I am almost 14 weeks and have still been sick as a dog. Second, the reason I removed the post...I have wanted to go back to work for quite some time and had not found the right fit. I wanted to be close to my house, for the right money, and have a flexible schedule. And all of those things came to fruition with a large company based in Franklin. I didnt want them to locate my blog and find out that I was pregnant, so I removed the post. I had my final interview, two hours long, when I was 11 weeks pregnant. I debated whether not to tell them, but finally decided to tell their HR recruiter the day of my final interview. I was told I could an offer as early as the Friday after my interview, which was on Wednesday. On Monday I was notified that the offer had been given to someone else. Without going into all of the details, and after long discussions with my closest friends, everyone agreed it was due to my pregnancy. So, many tears were shed...and I mean many tears, and now I am in a good place. I trust that there is another plan for our family and I am meant to be home with my boys and this new little life. Everything happens for a reason, even when the reason sucks.
So thank you for the concern and calls, didnt mean to scare anyone. I will begin to post more about the baby soon. I have been so wrapped up in all of this drama and taking care of my boys that the fact I am pregnant has not really even sunk in. But I have 26 weeks for that to happen!! And this baby, well this miracle is due on my husband's birthday...you cant tell me everything doesnt happen for a reason.

Halloween was a very big deal this year, the boys are still talking about it. And so I will never forget, they are doing the cutest thing where they pretend trick or treat with each other. One will stand on one side of the door, the other will knock, the door is opened and knocker says TRICK OR TREAT, and then they pretend hand each other candy, take a bite, and say yum, thank you bubba. It is the cutest thing ever!!! Ok, so here our pictures...the two cutest giraffes ever!!!
|Carving pumpkins with daddy and Aunt ShaSha, we had yummy gumbo for dinner!|
|Mommy's pumpkin...not bad, right??!|
|Daddy's pumpkin...I think Aaron and I have started a bit of a competition this year!|
|Me and my giraffes!!! They are so big!!|

We have been loving ourselves some pumpkin patches!!! The boys are obsessed with them. The first thing they ask for when they wake up from nap is "punkin patch momma, punkin patch." I love when they say pumpkin patch, it just sounds so cute!! So here are some of our punkin patch memories this year.
|All four of us looking at the camera....SUCCESS!!|
|Pax fell and was covered in these little sticky things. It was so funny, look how serious he is...he didnt move while Aaron picked them off!!!|
The boys went to a birthday party last night for Emmaline, and came home roaring dragons!! They put on quite the show last night for the camera!! The best part was after Kellen got his face painted he ran up to Paxton, who had just had his done, and they roared at each other for five minutes. SO FUNNY!! Those moments are priceless!!!

K&P started back to MDO on August 30th, so clearly I am still behind on posting! I was not there for their first week because I was in NY with Stephanie leading up to her wedding...which I will post about soon! I was super sad to miss their big day back and probably drove Aaron crazy telling him all that needed to be dropped off on the first day but it all worked out. He took these pics so I could see their sweet faces. And look, dad even picked out an outfit that matched...that is success in my book!!!!

Papaw came for a visit, and the boys quickly re-named him Poopaw. It was actually really cute. Dad said he was okay with being the "Gran Poopaw"!! P&K have talked about him ever since he left and we cant wait till he comes back!!!
|The boys are not into the same sports, Kellen is into baseball and throwing the ball. Paxton is ALL about golf. I knew they wouldnt make this easy on us!!!|
|I guess P was not feeling church this morning, but he was happy once he got there!!!|
|Kellen loves him some PooPaw!|

I am trying to cram all the summer activities that I know we will miss once the colder weather begins to takeover. One of the boys favorite things is sitting outside eating popsicles. They will say, "mama, mama pop-suckle, pop-suckle." So here are some last images of one our summer favorites.

I love to see my fellas eat something that is good for them! And they love corn on the cob!! We go to our local farmers market every Saturday to pick our veggies, pasta, and meats but the corn has become a family favorite!!

I am clearly way behind on my posts!!! I am going to try and catch up this week. We had such a great time at the fair this year. Paxton and Kellen, we thought, would love the rides. They both loved the first one, and then Pax refused all other rides. So funny our little aggressive guy was so afraid. But Kellen rode alone, and that tickled me pink!!
|Pax letting us know he was all done, he crawled out of the seat belt before it started! So I was screaming to the guy not start the ride so I could get him off...a moment of panic for mom!|
|He is sooo big!|

Paxton and Kellen have FINALLY finished ISR. The program is only suppose to take 6 weeks, it took 3 months. It was a long road, especially for mommy getting two toddlers to the pool every day for 10 minute lessons but it was worth it!!! Check out my little Kel-bug swimming the length of the pool at my in-laws house. A side note, ISR teaches babies and toddlers survival skills in the water. So you will see Kellen jump in, swim, roll to a float to breathe, and continue this order until he finds an exit. I am so thankful we stuck it out to see this kind of result!!!

This past weekend I was in NYC for my BFF's wedding shower and dress fitting. We had such a great time, it was good to get away for a couple of days. I do have to say, I could NEVER be a mommy in NYC. I watched moms get in and out of cabs all weekend with strollers and babies and I just dont think I would have that extra energy to make it happen!!! I love my car and I love the burbs...glad to be home!!!!!!
Stephanie's wedding is Labor Day weekend, so close...I cant wait!!!

|Right before her dress fitting...she was nervous!!|
...Or at least two guys that looked like him, but didnt sound like him!! We went last weekend to a concert at Crockett Park with the Corley family. SO MUCH FUN! Just wish it was 10 degrees cooler!! Please watch the progression of Paxton's hair, that kid danced until he didnt have any sweat left!!!
