Scribble, Scribble

Happy Face - William had his 15 month check-up yesterday and everything looks good. Basically, he is tall and thin and developing quite well. He can now say about 60 words and seems to be learning a new one every day. Today he learned Elmo and bite.
William enjoyed scribbling with his new toy today. Everything was going well until he decided that the crayons were shaped like a ball. When the crayons started flying we had to stop.

William will dance to the music while trying to make some very beautiful art.

Christmas 2008

William spent a lot of time hanging out with Papa Tom. Papa Tom always takes William outside...
William wasn't sure what to think of all the goodies that Santa left him. He has now adjusted and he especially likes diving in the pit of balls.
Another new tractor...how did Santa know?

Hanging out with some of his cousins.

William left a tasty treat for Santa. I am sure he enjoyed the snack.

Misc. Christmas Outings

We were doing a little Christmas shopping at Cabela's and we had to take a quick stroll through the museum.
William listening to Christmas music in Gruene.

William running over the tree lights with his tractor. No wonder why we had to buy all new lights this year.

No Tears for Santa

Trey and I took William to see Santa today in Gruene and as you can see the big guy didn't scare him. We were surprised.

Christmas Tree Shopping

This tree was just the right size...
We found our tree - the only prerequisite was that it was taller than Trey.

William and Trey watch intently as the man prepares the tree for us.

Getting braver....
Sign me up for the circus - I am ready for the tightrope!

New Table and Chairs

Martha Davis gave us this table and chairs this weekend. Trey brought the set in the house and within 5 minutes this is how William had decided to use it.

Weekend in George West

William had the opportunity to practice his "Moo" sounds this weekend.
Driving Daddy's truck at the ranch.

We had a great time driving around the ranch in George West this weekend. The weather was beautiful and William really enjoyed seeing the cows.

Wedding in Schulenburg

William and I watched the fireworks while he enjoyed eating his fruit cup. I have never been to a wedding with such a great children's menu and playground (and all of this was at the bride's parent's home). We attended Trey's cousin's wedding in Schulenburg this weekend. We all had such a great time!

William was rocked to sleep by his cousin Katherine. She always does such a great job with him!

I can feed myself!

Did I miss my mouth?
Preferred method of feeding self....hands!

Happy Halloween 2008

William enjoyed playing in Aunt Lindsy's garage while we passed out candy. Trey took him to trick or treat at a couple of houses. At this stage of the game William was just fine eating his tasteless snacks and water.....I wonder how long we can hold off?

William decided to rearrange Aunt Lindsy's pumpkins.

Halloween Carnival

Pirate, Turtle and Skunk
We had a great idea to attempt our first Halloween carnival at a local church on the evening before Halloween. As we drove up we quickly realized that over a thousand other people had the same idea. Needless to say...we will try a smaller event next year.

Misc. Pics

All clean after a nice bath.
I wonder what Fletcher will do if I grab his collar?

William is just about to place his hand in Fletcher's mouth. Fortunately, Fletcher will let William pull his tail, sit on him, poke his eyes and stick his hand in his mouth.

William is making sure Fletcher's water is just right.

Day at the Zoo

William loved looking at all of the fish in the new African Safari Exhibit at the San Antonio Zoo.
We all had a great time exploring the zoo. We can't wait to go back!
At the end of our fun trip to the zoo William fell asleep dreaming of giraffes.

Pumpkin Patch in Bracken

William cruising around the pumpkin patch looking for the perfect pumpkin.
William and his cousin, Sydney, enjoyed going on a hayride through the pumpkin patch.
We found a pumpkin that was just the right size for William.

We had a great time looking for our pumpkin to carve today at the Bracken Methodist Church. Seeing all of the orange made it feel like Fall was really here - eventhough it was 88 degrees.

Wedding Shower and Football Game

William got to attend a wedding shower for one of Trey's cousins this weekend. He had a great time getting to see everyone and exploring the new scenery.
Saturday evening William attended his very first football game. I have a strange feeling it will not be his last. We went to watch one of Trey's cousin play at TLU and William was a trooper until the end.
