Man, I'm a sucker for a good "young adult" book series. It must be the 15 year old still living inside my 28 year old body...
Let's see, I love the Harry Potter books and don't even get me started on the Twilight series ( so good!!! ).  I saw Breaking Dawn this weekend- love!   And, by the way, I'm totally team Edward.
you're welcome
So of course I jumped all over the Hunger Games trilogy- and they were really good.  I couldn't put them down.  If you haven't read it yet you need to start!  The movie is coming out sometime in the spring I think.  Check it out!

what's going on?

baby Gray update:
1.  He's eating food now.  I've made him sweet potatoes and next up on the menu is butternut squash.  So far so good!
2.  He's trying to crawl- he moves those little arms and legs but can't go anywhere yet.  Baby proofing the house is on our agenda!
3.  Gray is getting very good at sitting up.  He still needs a little help, but each day he does better and better!
4.  We are taking our first airplane trip with Gray.  We'll be flying to San Francisco and Napa to visit the sisters for Thanksgiving.  Any tips on dealing with the time change?!
5.  He has discovered the swing at the park- fun, fun!  
6.  Picture overload below!

to grandmother's house we go...

Gray and I took a 6.5 hour road trip with Kelly, Carson, and Wesley (we all survived!) to meet baby Given!  Whitney and her baby G flew all the way from San Francisco to San Angelo.  It was so fun to introduce the cousins!

Canada, eh?

I'm a little behind so I'll be trying to catch up this week!
Here's some pics from our trip to Banff, Canada.  It was beautiful and cold- a nice break from the hot weather here.  Jake had to work most of the time, but it was nice to get away.  It was funny to see deer and elk roaming the streets and all over the hotel grounds.  
We had a good time but I was ready to get back to my baby!  I probably won't be leaving him again for a long time.

Next up, our roadtrip to San Angelo to see grandma & grandpa and meet our new cousin!

Yesterday was Gray's first Halloween and his 5 month birthday!  I think he enjoyed both, especially dressing up as a pumpkin!

He also rocked a couple of other Halloween themed outfits:

That last picture cracks me up!  This is how excited he is when I come get him from his nap.  Makes me laugh every time and forget that he only took a 30 minute nap and really should be sleeping longer.  Sneaky kid- already knows how to play me!
