Cloudy with a chance of a pesky fever!

Today we had family pictures taken. We haven't had picture taken in a all time. Aaron and I got up around 6:30 watching the weather worried that it was going to rain out our session. We left at 8:00 to drive to Waxachie for a 9:30 appointment. Dana spend an hour and half with us trying to take pictures. Aiden ran everywhere!! He wouldn't look at her for anything. We pulled out all the stops to get him to listen and smile...... but no. He was extremely fussy. I felt like all I did was apologize for his behavior. I could only hope that through all 200 pictures she took there was a few good ones....MAYBE. When we got home I was putting him down for a nap and he felt very hot so I took his temperature. He had a fever of 101.0. I felt like a terrible mom for not knowing he was sick. At least it explained for his bad behavior. It's not fun having a sick little boy.

Go Rangers!!!

Aaron's dad got a suite for game 3 of the ALDS. It's the only way Aiden could go watch a game. He had plenty of room to play.

Thanks G-Paw for the great tickets and food. We had a blast!! Go Rangers -all the way to the World Series!

2010 Pumpkin Patch

Last weekend we went to the Celina Pumpkin Patch. Grammy and Papa came with us. We got to feed the animals at the petting zoo, ride the hayride, run through the pumpkin patch and ride a train. We enjoyed a picnic lunch in the middle of the pumpkin patch. Over all, it was a fun day together as a family.

Aiden did not like feeding the goats. You can tell by the death grip he has on his daddy.

Aiden did like riding the little train. Aaron tried to sit in it with him but as you can imagine that turned out to be a joke so Mommy got too. This was the first time Aiden was still for more than 5 minutes. He didn't move the whole time we rode around the pumpkin patch.

Aiden's not real big on taking pictures. He had to much exploring he wanted to do.

As Fast As Lightning McQueen

Aiden did so good his first week of school that I surprised him on Friday with Lightning McQueen slippers. Needless to say he loves them and thinks he's super fast when he wears them. Daddy runs up and down the hallway with him sliding on our hardwood floors. Boys!

Sugar High

I'm sure you can imagine the sugar high Aiden had after this. Sunday afternoon Aiden and I decided to make some brownies. Aiden stirred while I put the other ingredients in. It took everything to keep him from sticking his hands in it. So after I pour the brownies in the pan I let him go after it.

Aiden likes to lick the bowl just like his Daddy but he takes it to another level and enjoys licking the counter tops too.


I love helping mommy in the kitchen!

9/11/ 2010

9 years after September 11 our country is still honoring and remembering those that lost their lives that day. As a family we got to honor our McKinney firefighters and police officers today. Aiden loved being able to see the fire trucks. I loved the free food and Aaron loved seeing Justin in a skirt. Justin played in the fire fighter's pipe and drum band and wore a kilt. We had a great time with the Reyes Family. Thanks Justin and all the firefighters and police officers for your service to our country.

Aiden's First Day at School!

Aiden's first day at school. He started off good looking at the fish in the tank and watching the kids but as soon as we went down the hallway he lost it. He refused to walk so I had to carry him to his room. Broke my heart but I know this is good for him. He hopefully will enjoy playing with the other kids. I met with the ECI lady when I got home. This process is crazy! I was not aware of how hard this was going to be. Not to mention it cost money and I was told it wouldn't. From what I heard today he might not even qualify but we'll see on Monday. Anyway, I spent my time with out Aiden cleaning house. Not much fun but necessary. I can't wait to pick him up.
