Halloween Week!!

And i mean....HALLOWEEN WEEK! Who knew you celebrated all week and weekend for Halloween!? I must confess though, we had TONS of fun! Below are pictures from her church playschool halloween party and the rest are from Halloween day! We had a birthday party, a neighborhood party, and a friend's halloween party all on Saturday!! What fun our little "kitty"had!

Pictures at the pumpkin patch!

We took Maggie to the pumpkin patch in Oxford at the beginning of October and this was the best we could do!! :) She was so into the pumpkins that she wouldn't even dream of looking at the camera!! It's just that time in her life and i don't blame her! I wanted to play in the pumpkins too!! :) This first picture is of her last year when she was around 6 months old! Wow! What a difference a year makes!! :)

Just for fun...

I found Maggie like this one morning last week...just sitting in her chair reading!

I'm pretty sure she's seen her momma and daddy doing this way too much!

cheese! happy halloween!

Living the MINI-VAN dream!!!

It's official!! We're living the mini-van dream and loving every minute of it!!! This post is mainly for my college friends who all nearly doubled over when i told them i was getting a mini-van (there may be one exception but i'm sure even she got a chuckle). I really don't blame them considering the fact that they knew me very well in college and i'm pretty sure i would have been voted "least likely to ever drive a mini-van!"'s to you, my nearest and dearest! An official picture of me in my "mini" for your pure entertainment!!! :)

Maggie's going to have a baby BROTHER!!

Yippee!! We are SO thankful that God is going to bless our lives with a little BOY in February!! YAY!! We found out this morning and have been on top of the world ever since! I have to confess that i think John has had the "pregnancy" glow all day! :) The baby looks healthy so far and we are extremely grateful for that! He is also showing to be a week ahead of schedule and since Maggie was so BIG at birth, my sweet Doctor told me that I'll have this baby by Feb. 13 at the latest!! So this moves my due date up a bit..or at least in my mind it does!!

Finally, we are naming our sweet little Angel after my father, brother, and John's dad. His name will be Robert William Oxford. Robert is my dad and brother's name and William is John's father's name. We'll call him "Bert" (short for Robert) after my dear brother who passed away 15 years ago this coming February (right around my due date). What joy we will have this coming February to honor him during a time that is usually so hard for my family (and parents in particular). We can see clearly God's hand in this and we are thankful for this blessing that will bring such happiness to us all! We can't wait to meet you baby Bert!

I attempted to get Maggie to hold these blue balloons!! this is the best I got of her! :)

Mommy and me class!!

Oh so fun!! Maggie had a BALL at the mommy and me class this morning at Kari's studio! There were 5 little ones and we had so much fun!!! They loved it...we just danced, climbed, jumped on the trampoline, played with balls and hoola hoops and did forward rolls!!! Definitely the highlight of the week!!

Maggie's First Day at Play school!!!

I did it!!! I actually took Maggie to "play school" for the first time this morning...sob..sob! She did GREAT...and thanks to John, i was able to actually leave the room instead of hanging out all day with her! I'm sure the teachers would have loved that! :) are a few pictures to document our experience!! I left her playing and having a ball and she left me with a VERY heavy heart....why is it always harder for the parents?
