He's walking!!!

So yes, the rumors are true. Wyatt is finally walking!!! Can I get a "Hallelujah!!?!" I know a lot of you Mothers out there are thinking, "She has no idea what kind of trouble she's in for." Which is probably true, but you have no idea how long we have been wanting him to walk, especially me and my back & shoulders! I just don't know how much longer I can carry him around all the time. Yes, I'm a sissy...Anyway, he started last week and walked like a pro, like he already knew how to do it. which he probably did. Then for some wierd reason the next day in a half he acted like he forgot how to and acted afraid of doing it. We think it's just the stubborn ox coming out in him. He'll walk when he feels like walking!! haha! I wonder where he gets that from? Poor kid and all our future kids, having both sides as stubborn as ever, we're going to have a rough time! Oh well. I would post a video of it right now, but for some reason the videos on my phone won't save onto my computer, so I'll have to take a video with our camera and post it later on. Anyway, just thought I would spread the good and "semi-bad" news. haha! :)

A Huntin' Family

Well, this was our Halloween this year. Wednesday night we went to Safeway and picked out some pumpkins, Wyatt had a blast crawling on the haystacks and picking them out! That night we went out to my parents and had a pumpkin carving contest. of course...

Let me start out by saying that Phil cheated. He did not use your regular old knive to carve the pumpkin this year, instead he used........his power tools! He may have cheated, but I guess it was pretty smart, cause he ended up winning the contest. He kept saying that this was the best pumpkin he has ever carved in his life! And it really was. He did a great job I must say. Doesn't it look like a Phil pumpkin too? hahaha! Love it!
This is my pumpkin! Isn't she a beauty?? Actually, this is probably the worst one I've ever done in my life and I kept saying that as well. Just so you know, he's sucking on a sucker. I thought it was a wonderful artistic touch don't you?
Here we are Halloween night all decked out in our camo looking exhausted after a long night of trick or treating! (We only went to two houses ;)) But it was a lot of fun none the less.
I just love this little guy!! I just can't say that enough! :) Look at that smile! He's going to be a ladies man that's for sure! He's already got the flirting down. Should I be worried??
Here's Crappa, showing him how to shoot the bow! Like Father, like son! oh no!!!!!! jk!!!
I just love this guy too! Can you tell? And yes everyone, that is a beard and a mustache he's sporting. Oh Dear..........
