We were so lucky to have Rachy come visit us last week! She came on halloween and stayed until Wednesday. She was so great to have around. While we took Crockett out for halloween, she cooked spaghetti for us and had dinner all ready when we got home. Chris and I had so much fun talking and laughing with Rach... maybe too much fun :) All week she was an extra pair of hands, eyes, ears, and she helped me rock Crockett, cook, shop, load/unload the car and entertain. It was wonderful! A girl could definately get used to that! Crockett also had so much fun with his Auntie... she did all the "fun auntie" things like share her tea (thank goodness it was decaf! He LOVED it!), give him bites, get him out of bed when mommy thought he should be napping! She could get him laughing and talking ~ I had so much fun just watching! I just love my littlest sister and am so glad she came to visit us! We love you and you are welcome back anytime you want!

Happy Halloween!!

I took his sucker away!

Sitting all by himself!

Crockett and Daddy with Hotshot

Crockett and all the cousins (He was chasing Nattie :)

For Crockett's 1st halloween, I searched and searched for the PERFECT costume. I finally found it ~ He was my lil pony! He looked so cute and it was just hilarious when he would crawl around with his little tail :) We didn't do anything too exciting, but we did go visit Grandmaw and all the cousins. Kayleigh was a witch (a nice one!), Emily was a dancer, Nattie was a ladybug and baby Rich was a sleepy cow! They all looked SO cute! I cannot imagine what the holidays will be like next year! Then we went to see Hotshot and MaryAnn. On the way to their house, Chris got pulled over by the DPS... I think Crockett got him out of the ticket! He thought Crockett looked so cute and so Daddy only got a warning :) By the time we got to their house, he was a little tired of the costume and it had to come off. He had enough and we paid for it most of the way home! Luckily, Elwanda had given all the grandkids suckers and Crockett had managed to tear a little hole in the wrapper... it saved us on the way home! He was very excited about the sucker! We kept it just in case we ever needed it :) We had a fun night and I know everyone loved MY LIL PONY!
