House Update

 Driveway has been poured.  I took William and Westin to the house to "try" to get their handprints.  The concrete guys helped me start over 3 times.  I don't know what I was thinking doing this by myself.  Westin was not loving the wet concrete.  It actually turned out ok when it dried.
 Driveway and sidewalk complete.
 Kitchen is very near completion.  Backsplash, lighting and plumbing are now in.
 Beams were installed this week too.  

We are almost done!!!! I can't wait.  We should be moving in some time the second week of November. Just a few more weeks.

Fall Fun

 We ventured out to get pumpkins a couple of weekends ago in Bracken.  Westin enjoyed his first hayride and William enjoyed riding the train.  I always look forward to our annual trip to the Bracken Pumpkin Patch.

 William has been so excited since he hot his new motorized train set.  A friend of mine from work gave it to him after hearing about his love of trains.  Her son had outgrown the set and was happy to pass it on.  I assured them that it would get good use.  He loves it!

Westin's 1 Year Football Picture

 1 Year Football Picture. This picture gets a little harder each month.  But, here we are at the 13th picture with the football.
Here is a picture of Westin when he was only two weeks old.  I can't believe how much has changed this year.
 Hey everybody, this is how old I am! 
I said, I am ONE! 
 I recently bought a new camera and have just now taken the time to figure out the new process to upload my pictures.  I am so excited to finally be able to quickly capture some really great moments. Here is a conglomeration of some recent favorite pictures.
 William finally overcame his fear of jumpy castles.  He now loves them!  Silly boy.
 Wonder where the toys have been going? the diaper pail.
 Push it over like this.....
 Just like that, they are gone.  Now we know where the toys have been going.

Not another kiss!

William's 4th Birthday Party in GW

 William had his 4th Birthday Party in George West at his Aunt Shay's house.  This year he wanted a Hot Wheel's chocolate cake.  

 William's double chocolate cake that he requested.  It sure was good. 

 I love cars!  It doesn't matter how many cars he gets, he loves them all!
 YEAH! Another Thomas the Train toy.  These are his favorites!
William and Gram

 It is tough celebrating all the birthdays.  William fell asleep with his new gun, book and hat on his way to New Braunfels after his fun birthday weekend in George West.

William and Westin playing with all of their new birthday toys.  

William Turns 4

This year William's actual Birthday was on our Fair Day.  We met up with some of his friends and spent the morning at the Comal Fair.  He had a great time!  
 William would only sit on the John Deere tractors.  His Great Grandfather would be proud.  In this picture he is with his friend Jamie.

 William riding a carousel  for the first time without me holding on.  He did just fine:)
 Landon, Reed, Jamie and William riding a ride at the carnival.

Watch out drivers... Reed and William are behind the wheel!  In about 12 years I am going to retake this picture when they really are hitting the open road.  I'm going to start praying now.
