Thanksgiving in Louisiana

We headed to Louisiana for Thanksgiving this year. I forgot my camera on Thanksgiving Day, but got plenty of pics of the fun stuff we did to entertain Jack. These are just a few of my favorites.

Storyland at City Park....

Audubon Zoo...

Happy Halloween

Here are a few pics from Halloween. Jack was a T-Rex(he is really into dinosaurs right now). The Edmistons came over and we ate dinner and then walked around our neighborhood. It was low key but alot of fun.

Jack the Barber

Brandon was out of town for work one night and I let Jack have a sleep over in my bed with me. I put him to bed and then went out to the living room to watch tv for a while before I went to bed. After he had been in there for about an hour and I thought he was sleeping he yelled that he needed to go to the bathroom. I walked in there to help him and didn't notice a thing. I got him on the potty and turned around to walk out and noticed this on my bathroom counter. I'm sure you can imagine my reaction. I turned around and he was just smiling with a huge chunk of hair missing. I laughed and I cried. I was laughing because he looked so funny and crying because we had family pictures in a week.

Luckily, he only cut it on one side, but the shortest part was all the way up to his scalp. We have a great barber that was able to fix it enough that we could still take our family pictures and they turned out pretty good.

Why Daddy Works...

This morning Jack woke up, really early, and was so excited that Daddy was still home. He ran to the bathroom where Brandon was getting ready and this is the conversation that they had...

Jack: "Daddy, it's not a work day?"
Brandon: "Yeah, Buddy it is , but tomorrow isn't a work day."
Jack: "Daddy, you go to work to pay for this house?"

Brandon came and told me about the conversation. I didn't really believe him, I guess, so I asked Jack, "Why does Daddy go to work?", He said,"Mommy, he has to pay for this house. It costs alot of money."

We laughed so hard... I mean, where do they get this stuff.
