Kimberly, Wade, Jax, and Lawson all came over for Halloween. The boys were all Cavemen. Kimberly made their costumes. We hit Sonic around 5 p.m. and then headed to our hood to trick or treat. We started early which was a great thing because they were done by 7:30. We saw so many friends and neighbors. It was awesome.
I love this one above!! I just wish Lawson was looking up.
I love how Jax and Gray are looking at each other and Lawson is trying to get in on the action.
Tyler had no problem getting in character.
Gray loved trick or treating. He would wave and say "Bye" about a million times as we walked away from each house. He also wouldn't put his candy in his bag. He was trying to hold on to all of it.
This past weekend Lindsey and Derek traveled to Atlanta for a wedding. I kept Parker along with my gang and we had a great time. I told Jeremy that I could so have five kids. He looks at me like I am crazy!! It is true that Parker and Gray are like Thing 1 and Thing 2 on Cat and the Hat. Anyway, I had to get this picture. (Tyler wasn't too fond of this. He was in the bath first and slowly the troops started climbing in. Ty usually showers to avoid this from happening.) I really don't think that one more boy could fit in this tub.
When it comes to football we are so HAPPY around here! Texas and Alabama are doing so good. It is really fun. The boys rotate between their Alabama and Texas t-shirts all the time. I wish I had a recent picture. I just had to give a shout out to our two favorite teams, even though in our hearts, well maybe just mine and Blake's, Alabama is #1. The boys ask me if I will ever be Longhorns fan and I say "When I have lived in Austin as long as I have lived in Alabama, I might consider it." Roll Tide!!!
*this is the only picture I have to post. I am such a slacker.
I know, I know, I have not been on top of my blog. I really like to blog and I have had my blog since Sam was 4 months old, so it is almost three years old. I love letting my friends and family know what is going on. It has been a crazy five weeks around the Self household. We are loving what God is doing at Free Chapel, but it is keeping us so very busy. Here are a few highlights from the home front. (you can catch up with Free Chapel on jerms blog.)
1. Jeremy and I took a trip to Atlanta for our good friend Brent's wedding. It was awesome. We stayed with our dear friends the Burton's. We saw so many college friends and South Florida friends. Did I mention we didn't have our kiddos with us? I read all the way to Atlanta and all I carried on the plane was my purse. Wow!!! I owe Lindsey big time for watching my boys.
2. Blake is loving football and Tyler starts basketball this week.
3. Sam is really funny. Quick Story: I was praying for the boys before I dropped them off at school and at the end I said "and everybody says...amen" and Sam said "No Mom! And all God's people say...amen."
