Junior Scout

This year Aubrey is a Junior Scout!
I am not leading this year, due to sweet Lillian I stopped and Aubrey wanted to continue!  I am so proud of her to continue without me at her side, honestly I think she likes it better that way!
She officially bridged over again!

Here she earned her cooking badge, she cooked breakfast! She even burned her fingers, thank goodness for the aloe plant!   It was much needed!

Just remember this cutie will be tapping at your door pretty soon with cookies for sale!

Wonderful weekend

We had a busy weekend, Friday night we meet Steven at the lab and took him to dinner and drug him over to the gymnastic meet at UNC.  It was fun to see the gymnast in a relaxed atmosphere where they were competing against themselves.   Some of our favorites have returned and a few retired girls were in the stands to cheer them on, Aubrey got to see her favorite from last year, Elizabeth!  Lillian did really well as we were out and about, Jamie played his DS and hung out with us.
These are few pics from last week that melt my heart, going back to work will be bitter sweet!
Lillian is such an easy baby, I am do thankful she is so flexible with our schedule.
This was Jamie's homework on Thursday, he was thankful for soldiers and Jesus!  I am so blessed that he would think to draw this instead of something silly like ketchup!
He really is an awesome little fellow!
Here is one of our favorite girls, Haley Watts, she really awesome and we are glad she is back!
This was a typical Saturday morning pre-Lillian! Now 7wks, and we are all back at Reeds for coffee and hot cocoa!
It felt so good!
After a long day of work, we decided to start a little fire and make hotdogs and s'mores as and end to our outdoor fun, and begin our hibernation period!  We have new neighbors that moved in an what better way to get together and play!
And again Lillian was a trooper!

This was the first year we Trick or Treating together!   Steven's parents came in to visit so they gave out the candy!  It was was fun, but busy!!   Here are few pics from our adventure!

Here they are checking out their loot!
 Here is the candy we gave out!  I am not sure on the poundage but it was a lot!!

Here are our monsters!  Aubrey went as Morticia, however she could not remember her name!  Jamie wanted to be the blue Ninja Turtle, thanks to Grandma Robin he already had this costume!  We go him a new mask and he was set!  Lillian, well she wore a warm fleece "Boo Bag"!  She was 4wks old and slept through the adventure!
Here is the neighborhood crew!  We love getting this picture each year to see how they have all grown!  Just think, I guess Lillian will be walking next year!
