Milo's Blessing

Last Sunday we blessed our baby brother Milo My parents came to visit and Brody HAD to take them to his favorite OMNIPLEX

Brody had us address him as big brother, and would correct us if we didn't

We ate at at POP'S, Taco San Pedro, and Cattleman's

We are so thankful for all our family and friends who came to our special day!

Week of Halloween

We went to the circus several months ago, and so when I asked Brody what he wanted to be for Halloween he told me he wanted to be an elephant and Milo a baby elephant so they could hold tails like they do at the circus! This is my homemade attempt at their Halloween costumes!

Brody had a blast being with all his friends and cousins running from door to door getting free candy. He was lagging behind but would scream at the top of his lungs "Hey guys wait for me" and run as fast as his little feet would carry him.

Chasing after the guys

Why was he always behind everyone? Because every house we would stop at he would
stop and talk to the owners and just shoot the breeze. Here he is checking out the puppy. Typical Brody lollygaggin' behind

Amari and Brody, two elephants born two days apart!

Milo did not join in the trick-o-treating festivities tonight

On Friday at school Brody had a Halloween Parade and this was one of his peers dressed like "Billy the exterminator" this was the best picture I could get while trying to be conspicuous

Line leader Brody, I'm not sure if he didn't want to wear his costume or his teacher didn't want to put it on him, but he didn't mind.

Milo waiting for the festivities to start

Our ghost cookies we made for our class

Thursday Brad didn't have church stuff, so we carved a pumpkin.

Stinky pumpkin face

Happy Halloween!

Friday Funday

Brody loves playing with friends! So when he started to beg me to go to school I understood why. I was a little apprehensive to let him go but when we started to look around at a couple of preschools around town he was VERY excited! The first one we went to he asked me over and over if this was his school, I said if mama and dada like it then maybe and he said "please like it, say you like it!" when we left he cried because he wanted to play with his friends...break my heart. Finally after several other places we finally settled on Southern Hills in Edmond. It seems like a great fit for him and he enjoyed the first day and the first thing he told me was he made a "great friend". Unfortunatley he didn't remember his name ;p
When he got into the car after school if jumped and gave baby brother a kiss

Later that night we went to a football game at Deer Creek, Brad's Alma Mater, where they recognized the 10 yr anniversary of his football team's and schools only State Championship win.

Waiting for dada to come out on the field

After half-time we went into the wresting room where he also spent many times for me and nostalgic times for Brad!
Don't you always just want to dance when you hear the marching band??
