Trick or Treat

Happy Halloween!! Hope everyone had a very fun day. We definitely did!

Our pumpkin
With the lights out...

Introducing....Bam Bam!
That's from the Flintstones, in case you're like my sister, Caroline, who said "who?!" when my dad told her Brendan was being Bam Bam and he said "From the Flintstones!" and she said "What's that?" That made me feel old.
This Saturday, we went and visited my cousin, Paxton, his wife, Abby, their 14 month old son, Ty, and their newest addition, Emery! We also visited with Paxton's mom, Ann, and her fiance. It was great to spend some time with them and hopefully we will get together again soon! I didn't get a picture of Emery, but she is gorgeous and Ty is so much fun. Brendan attempted to stand on his own and fell over on Ty, which did not please him at all, but other than that I think they enjoyed eachother. Here's a picture of me and Abby and the boys:
Ann also gave Brendan this really cute Tigger toy, I meant to take a picture of it, that shakes and sings a Christmas song. Brendan thinks it is hilarious. Thanks, Ann!

After we got back to Fort Worth from visiting them, we headed to Little Gym for a Halloween party with some of our friends. Here is Brendan standing on some of the bars. I was trying to get him to walk holding onto them like he had done before, but he wasn't having it.
Playing in the ball pit. He liked it okay. But, he did get 4 new rubber ducks for the bathtub! Score!
What he really liked was this balloon. He actually crawled around to chase it! Amazing!
Here are Brendan's friends, minus Harrison, who was a pirate. Ben is in front of Brendan, he was a cowboy. Kinley is crawling towards the other balloon, she was a pink poodle. Ashlyn is sitting near Kinley, she was a lamb. Terrible picture to show all the cute costumes, but I didn't have a better one!
Then, today we went to a block party on our street for Halloween. Brendan met a new friend named Christopher who's almost 16 months. He got a little overwhelmed after awhile so we only stayed about 45 minutes. Here he is hiding in Daddy's legs.
After we put Brendan to bed, we handed out candy to the Trick or Treaters. I bought almost $40 worth of candy and I thought we had a ton but we ended up running out about 7:30 and had to turn our light off! There were lots and lots of kids. I can't wait to do that with Brendan next year!

Last but not least, on Saturday before we went to visit Abby and Paxton, we went to see the soon to be newest addition to the family. We will go pick him up for good on November 15th. Say "hello" to Shiner!

He was great! Very calm for a puppy but still liked to play and have fun. Whenever I picked him up, he just relaxed in my arms and started falling asleep. I don't know what Tucker is going to think, but I've been reading up on how to properly introduce a puppy to your older dog and how to make the older dog not hate the puppy, so hopefully it will work.
Brendan finally started walking with his walker a little more this week and will walk across the room holding onto it. He also has started letting go of things sometimes when he's holding onto them and trying to stand on his own. Before, I would have to let go of his hands to get him to try to stand alone but now he's doing it by himself.
I think that's it. Hope y'all had as great of a weekend as I did!
