Happy Halloween!

We had a blast for our first Halloween with Houston! Some of you might be thinking how sick it is to dress up a cute baby as a VAMPIRE, but you have to understand a little something about Houston. He is getting his teeth so quickly, but in the wrong order. His little vampire teeth on top came in before the middle top ones, so we had to take advantage of it and make him the perfect vampire while we could. Isn't he so cute?? We tried to get him to flash a perfect smile to show off his teeth, but this is as close as we got.

Hilarious, isn't it??

Of course, we also had to carve our pumpkins. What kind of parent would I be if I didn't let Houston live it up and get down and dirty?? He loved it!

Trip to Colorful Colorado

A week ago I got to take a trip to Colorado with Houston and my little sister, Sarah. We had a blast!! I haven't been back in almost a year, and I can't believe I ever went that long without my Colorado! We had so much fun hanging out with Grandma and Grandpa Lathen and Daniel.

Houston was so afraid of the leaves, especially when we tried to rake them. Derek's got his work cut out for him!Among many other things, we all went to a corn maze near Chatfield. So fun!!

Holy cow, Houston is in LOVE with kettle corn!!

Porcelain Always Wins

A couple days ago Houston got in his first fight with none other than the toilet! Surprisingly it wasn't from pulling himself up onto it then falling down... which is how he receives most of his battle wounds. No, he decided to ram the toilet full throttle with his forehead. He's Derek's child, not mine!! The pictures were taken right after, so now he has a beautiful, purple bruise over his eye. Round One: Toilet!
