A posting all it's own! HAHAHA!!!

Because of popular demand (everyone was so excited to see Jes in the Bee costume) I have decided to dedicate a whole posting just to him, and all the different personalities his bee has!
The honey bee...
The psycho bee...

The tough guy bee...
And of course, the CREEPY bee...

Thanks for being such a great sport about wearing women's leggings honey! Your the greatest! (and I know you secretly loved all the laughs and attention!)


We went to a Halloween party at Jes' work tonight. The kids had fun dressing up and Trick-R-Treating around the offices... and we had fun dressing up too!

One butterfly and one caterpillar coming up!

The infamous bee costume!!!

Tori ate at least 5 suckers in and hour and a half!!! I don't know who kept opening them for her. She would walk up to people and hand one to them and say THANK YOU! I guess she was too cute to resist, they had to open them for her!

It didn't take her long to get the hang of it! She soon realized people were giving her candy!

Mason was such a cute spider!

Trick or Treating to all the offices
We went to Trunk-R-Treat at the church Wednesday night. It was fun, but really hot and humid!

The whole family!

Victoria in her curlers getting ready for Trick-R-Treating!

Aryah, 4 weeks old today!

She is getting so big already! They grow up way to fast.

We had a lot of fun at the two parties we went to, so I think we might tell Mason Halloween is over and skip Trick-R-Treating tomorrow. We have so much candy now that it's insane, we REALLY don't need any more!

Halloween Symphony!

Jes and Mason went to a Halloween event conducted by the Austin Symphony. Mason got to dress up and listen to all the instruments (his favorite thing to do). He could name all the instruments. Spiders and skeletons came down from the ceiling and there were a few sing-a-long sections! At the end, when everyone was running for the door, Mason and Jes ran for the stage and Mason got to meet the conductor and the trumbone player!

It was a great time for Mason's first sympony! Afterwards, Jes and Mason played out front and then had a treat at Sonic to top off the day!

Kids with Grandma

Aryah, 12 days old

Mason wouldn't get into the picture. He was being a turkey... =-)

Kyle fair and Texas Memorial Museum

Texas State University has a free museum that is open to the public. We took the kids and Grandma to see it. It was really cool. They had everything from dinosaurs to geodes to bugs! Mason really liked it. And best of all, it was free!

Mason loved the dinosaurs!

There were lots of animal exhibits.

We told Mason to pose like the statue. This is what we got!

Kyle Fair
Jes was really scared to let Mason get on this ride. He was afraid he would fall out of the swing. It did go pretty fast, and he was the smallest kid on the ride, but he had a blast! He went on it 4 times!

The park at the fairgrounds.

Grandma Vickie and first bath!

Mason and Victoria helped me give Aryah her first real bath today! Tori was desperately trying to get into the tub with Aryah! Mason did a good job of washing the babies tummy! Aryah didn't even cry!
Everyone was so "super excited" (Mason's words) for Grandma to come to visit! She came in on Tuesday Oct. 13 and will be here for almost 2 weeks! We love when Grandma comes to visit! She is so helpful and the kids just love her!
Snuggles on the couch!

Mason and Victoria meet Aryah

Jes brought Mason and Victoria to the hospital on Saturday morning to meet their new baby sister. Victoria didn't seem to notice her, which was good because she has a cold. We have been trying to keep her at a distance from Aryah. Mason however, was beside himself with excitement! He didn't even want to open the present Aryah got him, he just wanted to hold her! He said over and over "I just love my new baby sister Aryah! She is so cute!"
I think he is so cute!!!

The whole fam-dam! Wow, we are now a family of 5!

Love this one! Her double chin is funny, and Mason's face cracks me up!


We finally got him to open his present.

Tori was more excited about the tissue paper then the toy!
