Both kids were technically still sick on Halloween, but they felt good enough to stand on the front porch with us while we handed out candy--and walked up and down the sidewalk a few times looking at all the other costumes...They were so excited this year-oh well--they looked pretty cute anyway :) we did have a great time at the Halloween party at our friend Stacey's house with all the girls and their babes :) They are such good friends and my life is definitely blessed because of them! GO GNO!
Meredith, Me, Cason, Tracey, Hannah, Jen, and baby Caroline

Cason is sitting on "his throne"--doesn't he look regal? he he where are his loyal subjects??? (i.e. Hogan)
Lucy Kate, Emerson, and Halle at Purple Cow
I FINALLY can get Halle's hair up in pigtails! (but they don't stay in very long--she's not big on them) :)
our little "tanker" Cason wearing his new outfit that his Grandmommy got him (he's ready for a crawfish boil :)
the kids piled up in bed together :) do they even look related??
Halle eating her breakfast at "her table" while watching the Wiggles (of course) --thanks to Bernadett for the cute cup and plate set--she wants to eat on it EVERY meal :) she loves the ladybugs :) (notice where Hogan strategically places himself :) he has gained a POUND in the last year!!! he's our sweeper for the floor :)
Snuggling on Saturday morning with daddy in bed-they love to come wake him up! (and he does too :)
Our "firstborn" child--poor Hogan--he just gets chased by Halle and usually his mom and dad remember to feed him :) He does, however, still reserve the place in mom and dad's bed (RIGHT in between us, of course)
I can't believe he is almost 6 months old! where did the time go?
playing together-Halle with her cheesy grin
Halle doing her FAVORITE thing this summer--swimming (sans bathing suit) in her froggy pool :)
sweet "Cay Cay" as his sister calls him :)
Believe it or not, this is the ONLY picture we took of ourselves the WHOLE weekend we were in Austin! We took it of ourselves, so it's a little funny :)

Halle loves to play with her new kitchen (she and Nonny cooked up some mean meals!)
Cason looks like this most of the time (happy and smiling and usually squealing about something) He is such a sweet easy baby!!
