*Fair warning-this post is random.

Well HELLO my long lost friends!  Sorry for being a bad blogger...I have no excuse!  Actually I do and he is wonderful.  Life has been very busy.  Since we have such a good football team, we play all the way through November.  Once football is over, life will slow down a good bit.  I am still excited to make it to state championships though.

I am just so excited about the holiday season this year.  Last year was a really low time for me.  We had just been through 2 failed adoptions and I did not want to celebrate anything (to be perfectly honest).  I did not put our tree up until the week before Christmas.  This year I the tree is up and being decorated as I speak!  I have my Christmas candles lit and singing holiday tunes in my head...Artie is in the same room watching the first UT basketball game of the season.  I am going big and gaudy this year for Christmas.  Next year Gray will be walking and can guarantee he will be into everything!  I imagine the tree will only be decorated from about 3 feet and up.

Artie, Gray and I are headed to the beach next week.  I can not wait!  I love all of the yummy restaurants and the relaxation to be had.  It is a great time to go because the tourists are gone.  The only thing I am worried about is packing Grayson.  That is a lot of stuff for such a little person.

Grayson is still sleeping through the night consistently.  Every now and then (like this morning) he wakes up really early.  He is a kicking machine when he lays on the floor but is pretty content to not rolling over.  When did your babies roll over?  I'm not too worried...just not sure when to look for it.  I will do a full update on the 27th!

That is it for now.  Sorry for the lack of pictures this month...I do not know what I have been thinking!!  Here is a funny picture from my phone!

He is one of the cutest baby I have ever seen...but I think I am a bit biassed.

Oh!  Did you see The Pioneer Woman's Creamy Pumpkin Pie today.  YUMMY!!  
OK...That really is it now.

Hope you are having a fabulous week!

I have three girls, and even the one who did everything at warp speed (crawling by 6 months, walking by 8 months, driving by 4, etc) didn't start rolling until 4 months. It didn't slow her down a bit!

He'll be doing it before you know it :).

You make me happy when I read things about your little Gray! It sounds like him and Noah are soul "brothers" and have been from the start! Noah is not interested in rolling over either and kicks like a maniac! :) Hope they can meet soon!
