Boo, Y'all!
I plan on taking Jack Henry trick or treating tonight.(Dustin has to work) We may have some friends over to accompany us on our very first Halloween adventure. I took him to a fall fest yesterday. He had fun watching everyone but it was (of course) geared towards bigger kids. He will have fun at it next year though! We did play a few games..with help from Mom.
I am not feeling well so after the fest we both took a long nap. JH still has a runny nose(going on 3 weeks now) but I am getting the crud again. YUCK!
I hope everyone has a very Happy and safe Halloween!
From my Turkey to you.....

Birthday Weekend

What a weekend! On Friday, Dustin and I went out for drinks with friends but to my surprise we actually went to my surprise party. Dustin(with help from a dear friend) threw me a surprise party for my 30th Birthday. It even had a theme! It was a 20's theme and everyone was dressed flapper style and the guys even dressed the part too(they handed me my outfit when I got there). Say goodbye to the 20's and hello to the 30's. It was so original and cute! Dustin did a great job(yes, it was all his idea! Theme and all!) We all had a great time and had lots of great food. I am so blessed with wonderful friends and an amazing husband!

On Saturday we went to Minneapolis(or better known in these parts as "the cities"). We left Jack Henry here with his B. They had a great time and as we teased her she played "teen Mom" for the weekend. JH did great and they had lots of fun. I got a text from B that JH woke up in the middle of the night (he was sleeping with her) and got her phone somehow. She was awaken with sounds coming from her phone. Apparently, JH had called many of her friends but it was her ex boyfriends voice that woke her up. HA! When she got up and looked at JH...he had phone in hand, a huge grin and just started laughing when she caught him. UGH! What a Turkey he is!

Yesterday(Monday-25th) was my actual birthday. We enjoyed a very lazy, rainy day. We ran out and renewed my drivers license and then Dustin and I went out for dinner. It was a very low key day. Just perfect!

**JH update** What is he doing now? He has perfected crawling and is pretty darn fast. He is pulling up on everything and give really nice and super wet kisses. He has to take both hands and put them on your head and pull you close for a kiss though. That is how he works. LOL Oh, and we now have 6 teeth. 4 top and 2 on the bottom. He loves to bite shoulders and anything else he can get a hold of!

Okay, here are a few pics from Friday.

The party planners! Miss Ami and Dustin. So sneaky but they did a great job!

Party People! There are a few that did not make it in the pic but I was so impressed that everyone dressed up!(notice Mr. Harris is NOT in costume.

Sunday post #2!

Here are more pics from today!

A perfect fall Sunday

We gad a great lazy morning and then went to the pumpkin patch. We had lots of fun! They had hay rides, the pumpkin patch, pig races, petting zoo and so much more! It was great and we will be back next year.

This is Billy. He was trying to get to JH through the fence.

The pig races! It was so funny!!

Game Day!

It is game day in the Harris house! Ribs are in the BGE and Fall is in the air. Daddy is in his "man room" with the game blaring and I am doing a few things in the house..or at least attempting to. Bama plays tonight so I have a little time to get things done.

We have great week with Daddy being home. We have been taking lots of naps as a family and just being lazy and enjoying our quality time. Jack Henry loves playing with his Daddy!(he says DA-DA-DA-DA all day long!) They play for hours and have the best time. I have left them alone for a few hours and they have done very well. Dad was a little nervous at first but he is such a natural with JH. I went back to sleep this morning and when I got up(bc I thought I needed to feed JH breakfast) I found JH in his high chair playing and eating while Daddy fed him. It is so nice having help with JH..and having Dustin home! I missed him so much. I forgot how much fun we have together doing the most boring of tasks.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday. I cannot wait for ribs and the game tonight! Hopefully JH wont get too scared when Daddy yells at the TV!

Guess who is home??!!

DADDY came home yesterday!! We picked him up from the airport around noon. We are all happy to have him home. JH gave him lots of his famous neck hugs. He is off for a few weeks so we are excited to have some family time and enjoy the beautiful weather.
My boys..

Water Baby

Jack Henry and I have been doing a Mommy and me swim class at the Y. He loves the pool and has learned so much. He was by far the youngest in the class but we made lots of friends. He would get so excited when he saw the pool. He learned lots and even went under water a few times and never even cried. He would give me a good drench with all of his splashing and kicking. He loved to sing when we were in the big group and loved to snuggle at the end and sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star".
Yesterday was fun day and lifejackets. He floated and played and got a fun certificate at the end.
Here is my water baby.
