Our Little Gray has finally decided it is time to walk. He is getting pretty good. Craig and I have sat in the same place with each boy. They would go back and forth back and forth. He will be fun Christmas!!
Our Boy Trevor has started Basketball. He LOVES it. I am his Mom and I can brag about him to. He is a great ball handler. To our surprise he is not very aggressive. We have been telling him to be more aggressive and his last game he stole the ball five or six times. Whoot! Whoot! Go Trev! His first game he was able to shoot a foul shot and made it! Thanks to ALL of our family who has came to his Games. It really means a lot to Trevor. He gets excited to see his family!! We are so Proud of our little Baller!!!!
These Guys bring me pure joy. Seeing them happy makes me happy. Before we left Gatlinburg we let them play in the Creek. They had soooo much fun. Craig and I enjoyed watching them until Grayson started eating random stuff growing from the tree!! Great Memories were made!!
One of our favorite places to visit is Gatlinburg and Pigeon forge. The weekend my parents took the boys to Charlotte Race Craig and I decided we would go with Grayson. The idea of two days to eat anywhere we wanted and one on one with Grayson was the only reason we went. We are very limited to what we can eat with the big boys allergies. Grayson food is easy because we carry it with us. We enjoyed every meal!!! Everything was booked for the weekend because so many people were on Fall break. We decided to stay at Wilderness at the Smokies. They have a indoor water park. Since we didn't have the big boys yet we gave our water park bands to Mitchell and Shelby one afternoon. They had fun. We got the big boys back on Sunday afternoon and they went straight to the water park. We did not get one picture of my boys playing in the water. It was fun even Mommy enjoyed a couple water slides. Monday we went up the Mountain and let the boys explore the streams. The parks were still under Government shutdown. A lot of things were still closed but we made the best of it. We took tons of pictures so I have to split them up into two post! Enjoy!!!
This Year I decided to let Nolen type up his Q and A session. He LOVES to play on micrsoft word and he thought the idea was AWESOME!! He changed the colors and picked out the font. I did not change anything I wanted to keep it all the way he made it. My Baby is growing up on me way to fast. He is PURE joy and I am blessed to his Mom! We Love You Nolie!

I LOVE the Pumpkin Patch!! My hubby is not a huge fan so I decided to take the boys during fall break. Since it was close to Aunt Demi and Aunties houses they meant us out there. The kids had a blast. We could have gone back ten times. Live animals, Hay rides, and lots of fun things to do!!
My Father surprised Grandboys 1,2, and 3 with a trip to Charlotte Race in October. Ethan knew about it but we begged him not to tell Nolen until the week of. Pawpaw caved a few weeks before and told Nolen. To say it was the highlight of Nolen's year is an understatement. A little back story on Charlotte. My parents took us to the fall race in Charlotte every year growing up. Travis, Angel, and I have agreed it was our favorite vacation every year. We have so many memories at that track. I will admit I wanted to climb in the suit case with them. Nolen and Trevor had never rode in the motorhome so that was fun for them.
My parents were really good about doing something for all three boys. They visited Hendrix Motorsports. They really enjoyed it. My favorite pictures are of my Dad and the boys. To be honest my Dad was like a little kid he was so excited to take the boys. Mom took Nolen to walk the race track one morning. The track was doing a breast cancer walk and everyone was welcome. Our little guy was able to get Joey Logano's autograph. After that they took Trevor to the kids area where he could play. My boys had so much fun. My parents never thought they would have 7 Grandchildren and they are enjoying every single one of them. It is something special to go on a trip with Grandparents because I still remember going with my grandparents. I am Thankful my parents include my children on their trips. Thank You Geegee and Pops for the Fun Weekend!!!
I will add my mother is GREAT about taking Pictures. Thanks Mom I know I get my addiction from you!!
I am so happy for my little brother and his little family. You can not wipe the grin off of my brothers face. Demi is a rockstar and is doing great after her C-section Miss Ella is just fine and getting a little extra grandparent attention! Knox is perfect. We are so in LOVE with him.
This year we had A Hunter, A Mechanic, and A Charlie Brown for Halloween. We have way to much Candy. Thanks to Uncle Travis and Aunt Demi for allowing us to use your neighborhood and crash at your house for a few hours. Ella was a little Butterfly and Bryant was an Indian.
We normally have a camping trip the last weekend in October. This year we decided not to camp because it was cold. We drove up and spent the day with family on Saturday. On Saturday afternoon they Trick or Treating around the campground. The kids always enjoy it and was fun. We had 3 Army Men, A Super Girl, Two sweet Kittens, A sweet little witch, A scarecrow, and An adorable giraffe. Nolen decided to spend the afternoon with his Great Grandmother and when we picked him up he had won five dollars in cards. He had fun too!!!
Just want to share our GrayGray's smash cake pictures. His Aunt Kristin and Grandma made his cake. They did a fabulous job. All I did was send Kristin a picture of what My Mom was making on his outfit and she worked her cake magic. My mother worked her sewing magic. She made his bib, his shirt, and a seat cover. We are Halloween Mickey Mouse Crazy around here!!! We are already planning a big family trip to Disney Trip for next year we can't wait!!!
