what's new?

know he turned 2 a little over a month ago, but things have been crazy and I am just now getting to blog about it. we kept things very small this year. we had a small party with an elmo theme. he was really into the birthday presents this year and blowing out the candles...but the cake itself..not so much. we went to a local park and had a few snacks and visited and played. I cant believe he is two! time has gone by way too fast! he wants to do everything himself and is saying soo mnay new words everyday. he finally had a growth spurt, but is still wearing his clothes from last fall :0) not that I mind too much. He is now weighing in at 26lbs and 33 inches tall. 3lbs and 3 inches gained in the last 6 months. a lady asked us at the oumpkin patch the other day if he was about 16 months. I chuckled and said no, hes just my little guy!

at the end of august (geez i havent blogged in a long time!) we were invited to the beach for a long weekend with our friends john and tracy. the house was beautiful and we had a great time. Jen showed up also with her little ones, lincoln who is 3 and amelia who will be 1 next month. riley and lincold had a great time playing cars all weekend! we woke up the last morning we were there to very stormy weather!

I have been very busy canning this last month making applesauce and applebutter to put out in the pantry. and I even started me xmas shopping. (which I normally refuse to do until after thanskgiving). 1 holiday at a time please :0) blogger isnt letting me post pics right i will add thm later
