As mentioned before Shane was out of town a couple weeks ago. He went to Atlanta for a training.

NOTE: I have always wanted to go to Atlanta... I don't even know why, but it just sounds fun to me. Weird I know, but it is what it is.

So, I told Shane to go have fun and document it for me with some pictures.

This is what he came back with... one picture...

... such a Shane thing to do, gotta love him! At least he ate well :)

8 Crazy-Fun Months and Birthdays

Anabelle is more fun every week!!! She has a lot of new tricks in her bag now :) Seriously, she is growing up faster than I ever thought possible, and she makes me laugh much. This month she started pulling herself to her feet, and she also started crawling! And crawling everywhere now... Under the desk, into the laundry basket, under the table, and out the front door. I know it is going to get even crazier too :) My favorite thing is when she sees Shane or me and smiles real big and crawls right to us as fast as her little arms and legs will go. Here are her 8 month pics... and as you can see, she HATES keeping her shoes on, but loves playing with them.

  This is the first time that Anabelle stood up on her own a few weeks ago.
I was so surprised when I went to get Anabelle after her morning nap... she was standing up, and SO proud of herself :) We had to lower the crib so she wouldn't take a dive!
 And in her bassinet, she loved dropping toys on the ground, but when she started leaning over, we new it was time to lower that too!

 Anabelle stood up on the side of her car seat and fell right in. She didn't know what to do, she was kicking her little legs in the air, until finally she realized to push up with her arms.

I had a fun birthday last week even though my hubby was out of town. Anabelle and I went to Gardner Village and met Grandma Sherrie, Aunt Jesse and the cousins. We had a fun time walking around and shopping at the spooky little village :)

Landon & Anabelle observing the festivities from their strollers- good babies!

 The kids did a scavenger hunt for all of the witches.

 Here are a few random pics from dinner on Sam's birthday too.
