It was a video he made to celebrate our first date 10 years ago TODAY!! He added one of my new favorite songs and spliced lots of pictures together perfectly with the song. We are going to take a ballroom dance class (because I want to learn) and then go to dinner at the same restaurant as our first date. Josh even got a babysitter without me knowing. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful, thoughtful, romantic hubby!
I had to video the computer to put it on here. It's not the best, but you get the idea!
I LOVE YOU HONEY!!!!

We cut a wooden dowel rod used for our closet (to hang clothes on) and added the two plastic end caps to his crib a few inches above the crib railing. The bar can spin, if he tries to escape, and it's high enough that, for the time being, he can't swing his leg over it. I'm sure there are mother's out there who are appalled at our attempt to "stifle his development" and "keep him from progressing", but they obviously haven't met my very ACTIVE (trouble-making) son. Spend a day/night with him and you'll see things from my perspective.
So far, it's worked and it has let everyone in the family sleep peacefully...for the most part.

Lincoln skipped his nap, although he was in his crib for 2 1/2 hrs, and this was the result at 5:15 pm during dinner.
I'll never say never again....until next time.
P.S: Josh found my journal for me sandwiched between the headboard and the box spring while he was fixing the mattress. Yeah!

So now is the chance for me to begin a new journal on my computer. It would be easier if I had a laptop so I could type while laying in bed, but I think this will work just as well. We'll see. Just hoping I can find it sooner than later. By later, I mean the day we finally move out of this house 5 to 10 yrs from now.
So long far journal. May we meet again some day soon and laugh about all the really trivial yet "important crisis'", cry at the sad times, and be uplifted by the spiritual experiences I experienced. Adieu, Adieu. Parting is such sweet sorrow.

So there are the home made costumes that didn't turn out NEAR as good as they looked in my head!!(They never do.) But it was fun. Everyone loved Josh's and Lincoln's but couldn't figure out who I was, if I was standing by myself.
Here are some pics of us and our friends at the Trunk or Treat. LOTS OF FUN!!

The last night we were there, we got together with another family of friends, the West's, and the same comfortable feeling came over me. I missed seeing them and it was wonderful to just hang out and let the kids run around while we chatted. I know we will probably move back to Tennessee one day. Who knows when, but it was great getting to spend time with GREAT friends!!!

Took our first trip to the beach (Port Aransas). Got to see my "little brother" Keith Banks before he leaves for Costa Rica again for fishing (he's a boat captain);
Learned Lincoln likes to "cook" with mom;
Visited several Texas Hill Country swimming holes, including Hamilton Pool with Dan and Tannie Smith and family;
(can't remember why he's fussy. It happens so often these days.)
We did so many fun things this summer it's tough to list them all. It's great that Linc is getting big enough to do alot more with us. Now if we can only get him to sleep in the car when he is supposed to. Then we can take more road trips!!! hee hee.
