Thanksgiving and more...

Sorry it has been so long since I have posted. I do have a lot of photos to share:

Huddy-Buddy, Hud-ster, The Hud, or Booger as I have been calling him. Isn't he so cute?
Thanksgiving....we were so fortunate to be able to celebrate Thanksgiving with friends again this year. We are blessed. We had such a wonderful day. Here we are playing outside before lunch.

Aren't they too cute? Rebecca, Bailey's mom says the picture above looks like "Trendy Daisy taking granny Bailey on a walk!" Hilarious. These girls get along so well, which is so nice for the parents. They play together without fighting--there is a little over a year between them. Bailey turned 2 this past week.
In the tradition of Thanksgiving for the Mayberry's I carried on the Christmas PJ gift. The girls couldn't wait to put them on and wore them the rest of the day!
Bailey practicing being a big sister. Her brother Samuel was born last week. We are so happy he is here. Hudson is so excited to have a new friend!
Painting our toenails after bath.
Reading stories as our toenails dry. We also jumped on bailey's trampoline and went on a ride around the neighborhood looking at Christmas lights. What a wonderful day!
As any good PT should, Hudson is doing really well with his tummy time. Here are some photos.
Daisy loves to encourage him. He even has started rolling over to his back! Which is actually more like falling over.
Daisy LOVES to have her picture taken with Hudson and constantly ask me to take their picture. Here are some of my recent favorites.

2 months old. Can you believe it. He weighs 10lbs 4oz(25%) and is 22 inches long (50%). He is doing well. We are so blessed to have a happy healthy baby boy.
I had Chris take a picture of me and the kids the other day. I feel like I am not in any photos. As you can see we got our tree up. Daisy had such a good time decorating it. She is also enjoying playing with all of chris' car ornaments. I keep finding them all over the house instead of on the tree!!!! I hope is enjoying getting ready for Christmas. Daisy has asked me every day if Santa is coming---it is going to be a fun one this year!

6 weeks old!!!

I cannot believe it. When you are living in a fog time seems to fly! Here is a photo update....
Chris had vacation last week so we headed to Joplin for part of the week. We had "thanksgiving" since it was the only time we were all together--uncle steven was even there!!! So in true thanksgiving fashion we decorated the christmas tree and Daisy had such a great time!
Papa Jim and Hudson
Papa meets Hudson
Papa Jim brought John Deer hats home for the kiddos! How cute are they??
This week the Firestone's have been in town. It has been so WONDERFUL to have them here and Henry and Daisy have been having the best time. I have to sneak photo's once in a while so they will have something to put in their slide show at their wedding! :)
Daisy is really starting to adjust and back to her cute self at times!
The hud-ster in his boppy. He graduated to 0-3 clothes and size 1 diapers last week. He also weighed in at 9lbs 110z.

These are are new friends that we have gotten close to so fast. We are so thankful they are in Oklahoma! Rebecca is expecting baby Samuel in a couple weeks! Note how tired I look in this photo! oh the look of a mom with a newborn!
Daisy and Bailey playing princess.
These are some of my favorite pictures to date. This was one morning when hudson and I came in to get daisy!
They definitely look alike.
I am going to TRY like so many people to take monthly pictures with Hudson and his Thunder Monkey from Daisy. Daisy made this for him at build a bear while we were in the hospital. It is super cute. It has her voice recorded saying, "I love you Hudson". It makes me tear up still!
Well, I am half way through my maternity leave, I cannot believe it. So thankful for my two healthy, wonderful kiddos!

Photo Overload

We had a super fun/busy weekend. Our friend Bailey is turning two next month, but her parents were smart and had her party early since baby brother Samuel will be here one day before her birthday! Bailey had a pumpkin party with a bouncy castle--so fun!

I know I go on and on about our neighborhood, but is really is fabulous. One of our neighbors had a Halloween party Friday and here is the best photo we could capture of the kiddos....Hudson didn't make the shoot, he was sleeping and I really didn't want to wake him up for this!
Getting ready for the party

Playing with brother. So cute, can you see her tangled doll right beside Hudson? She kept trying to get him to put the doll in his hand!
Getting ready to trick-or-treat
Showing off the tail.
Sara. The cute strawberry that we went trick or treating with. We are so going to miss them next year!
The girls had a great time! We got too much candy for sure!
We are doing well. Still lacking sleep of course. Trying to get Hudson on a schedule---this is a challenge for me as well. I am not good with schedules! Anyone had any luck in this area?? Daisy is adjusting and we are doing well. Chris is on vacation next week! YEA!

3rd annual pumpkin patch trip

Well, the tradition continues. We headed out to the Orr Family farms this weekend. The weather was nice and mommy was feeling good. It was our first trip out as a family of 4! I have to say that it all went well! Hudson is such a good baby--we are beyond blessed! Here are the photos!

First stop, as always, the Carousel.

Here is Hud, taking in all the sights and getting some fresh air! I cannot tell you how good the sun felt to me that day!
So, so, so cute! Daisy helping push Hudson around.
oh, yeah, Mommy was there too!

Our friend Bailey was there as well. Daisy and Bailey had the best time, and they seriously wore Chris out!

Picking the perfect pumpkin!

The Train ride!

Isn't this so sweet? Let me just tell you what an amazing husband/father Chris is. He has been a HUGE help, even though his schedule can be hectic! I LOVE watching him with the kids, and there is nothing he'd rather do on a Saturday than spend it with his family! We love you daddy.
Family photo!!

We had another wonderful year at the Orr Family Farms and can't wait to go back next year. I have a feeling it will be a little more difficult once Hudson doesn't sleep in his stroller the entire time!!!
