Thanksgiving at our House

This year all of the Hayes' family came to our house for Thanksgiving. Our house was filled with the voices of these 3 precious cousins. This was the best attempt at a picture of all 3--they were everywhere!

We ended the week with a hayride (without the hay) on Uncle Charles' farm in Covington, GA. We had such a great time and Grayson already misses his cousins!!

What I've been up to

This weekend our neighborhood had a craft/art festival. So me and my sweet neighbor set up a booth with some of the onesies and shirts that we've made. We've been getting together the past few weeks while our little ones nap and just sewing away. We've really had a lot of fun just throwing around ideas and coming up with some cute holiday designs.

Well, our little shirts were a hit and we sold over half of what we had made and in addition to that we took about 10 orders. So guess what we're working on this week? We also got invited to another craft fair this Wednesday so we're hoping we can be a part of it.

Here's our little Grayson ready for church . Mimi made him this adorable Noah's Ark outfit. Chad got to be Mr. Mom this weekend while I was at the fair the whole day on Saturday. They seemed to have enjoyed their time together and got to watch lots of football. Grayson loves watching football!! He points, claps, laughs, and talks away in his own little language--it's really kind of funny!!
We still have lots of painting to do around here--all of the window trimwork! So, my parents are headed here for a few days this week to help out. I'm hoping we get a lot accomplished before the holidays.

The Big Announcement(s)!

I know this post is long overdue, but I still wanted to share because we are SUPER excited!!

Back in September, we planned to surprise my parents and show up at their house (on our way to the beach) and share our news of the baby. Andrew was already in town (which was perfect timing!) and I planned for William and Bonnie to show up too. No one knew of our news yet, and the plan was just to surprise mom and dad with all of us being together for dinner...then we were going to share our news!! Well...not long after William and Bonnie arrived, they decided to shock us all with the news of THEIR baby on the way!!!! And her due date was 1 week after mine!!!! We were SOOO excited for them!!! Grayson waited to make his announcement until after dinner and everyone was, once again, shocked!! It was such a fun night and we have so much to look forward to next year!!

We can't wait for William and Bonnie to have their little baby in their arms!! They will be amazing parents!! It has been so neat going through the pregnancy with Bonnie! We CAN'T WAIT to find out who's having a boy or girl --or may they'll be the same sex!!! How exciting!!

Needless to say, the parents and grandparents were THRILLED and it will be like having twins this Spring!! We'll keep you posted...

Our Little Lamb

I was very slack about a Halloween costume this year and had to come up with a "homemade" idea at the last minute! So, Grayson was a lamb--and I thought he was precious! He refused to wear the ears, so some people thought he was a cloud! Oh well..

I had to put this white shirt on him to protect the cotton balls until we got to church. He looked like a puffy marshmallow!

Trick or treat!! We made one stop to a sweet neighbor's house on our way to our church celebration. Grayson tasted candy for the first time--sweet tarts!! It's all he wanted for the rest of the night!

Chad was so excited to carve a pumpkin with Grayson. So Grayson watched sweetly while daddy carved away.
