We had a very interesting time decorating our tree Sunday afternoon. After Carl got it set up in the stand and filled it with water, we noticed a huge puddle surrounding our tree. Our stand had a small crack in it and all the water drained out! So, we had to take it down, and start all over with a new stand!! We finally got it situated and then the real fun began! Drew loved to "help" decorate the tree... which included dropping and breaking several ornaments!! Also, as you can see in the pictures, Drew has decided lately that he doesn't like to wear clothes! (oh my...) Also, he likes to CHANGE clothes... notice the different attire (all within a couple of hours.) We had lots of fun, though! Hopefully, more pictures later!

We had a great Thanksgiving. We spent the weekend before at Carl's parents' house. Drew and Kyler had lots of fun!!

Then it was off to Union for Thanksgiving at my parents'. And, it is not Thanksgiving if we don't load up and go to Lazy Acres Christmas Tree Farm in Chunky, MS to get our tree. This year was no exception!! We had a great time, except it was really, really cold. Santa was there this year, but Drew was not having anything to do with him!!

Shannon and Drew -- SO excited to get there!!

Trick or Treat!!

We had lots of fun trick-or-treating with the Davidsons. Drew was a little confused at first. I think he would have gone home after the first stop. He was so excited to get a piece of candy... he kept saying "open, open!!" He finally got the hang of it though!


Lots of older kids in the neighborhood kept asking "Peyton" for his autograph!!

Happy Halloween!!!

How to make wonderful halloween cookies, per Drew... (helps to have really cute stickers on each cheek!)


1. Take the frozen, already decorated dough out of the package


2. Place the precut, perfectly formed cookie dough on the cookie sheet

3. Let mama put them in the oven, take them out after 8 minutes on the timer, then help them cool off by blowing as hard and as close to the cookies as possible!


4. Eat and enjoy (this counts as "baking" right??)
