Gingerbread House

Tyson loves food.  All kinds of food.  And so making a gingerbread house that is completely edible is quite the treat for him.  Between eating all the candy and licking all the frosting, I'm shocked that the house ended up with anything!

Take a Back Road

Just when the colors were prefect, I had a chance to take a trip to Southern Colorado for a work presentation.  I was actually pretty pumped about it as it would give me plenty of time (5 hours one way in fact) to drive, ponder my thoughts, and jam out to some tunes.  Number one song choice was Rodney Atkin's Take a Back Road....because that is just what I did!  It was also a perfect day for me and my Canon to check it all out "Behind the Lens".

Webtastic Spiderman and a Fully Padded Dragon

This Halloween, the Ty Man was Spiderman.  It was as if he knew just what he wanted to be.  We took him to the local costume shop to pick out his perfect disguise.  I was certain he was going to pick out Thomas the Train, Mickey Mouse, or Lightning McQueen (all characters that he is loving at the moment).  But instead...he went straight for the Webtastic Spiderman as if it was calling his name.  He loved his new costume so much and even slept with the mask in his hand. 

Trick or treating went great.  If you know Ty, then you know this little guy will never turn down a piece of candy (or any food for that matter).  And so he caught on quickly that he could grab candy from all the neighbors just by ringing a doorbell and looking Oh-So-Cute.  

He was even lucky enough to Trick or Treat with his BFF, Paul the Dragon.  They ran around chasing each other to the next house, squealed and screamed like these two boys love to do...and even participated in a nice body slam.  No we were finishing up at the last house Tyson took off running full speed ahead.  And with the combo of the dark sky and the Spiderman Mask, he didn't see the Paul the Dragon at all and gave him a full force 39 pound body slam.  Thank goodness Paul the Dragon was fully padded!!!  

Either way it was a successful Halloween and I must admit that I am looking forward to next year when us Mom's can just stand at the end of the driveway and not have to hold the candy bags...or even better, stay inside while the Dad's have their turn  :)

I'm Tebow

It is not a surprise that the Ty Man is a huge Bronco fan with me and The Ry Guy as his influence.  I mean...I some days think we really do bleed Blue & Orange.  

But I must say that it is pretty darn cute that Ty walks around when wearing his jersey saying, "I'm Tebow".  Yesterday we took a trip to "The Man Store" (aka Lowes)...yet another influence from The Ry Guy.  And Ty was just so proud to announce to everyone that He Is Tebow.  

Let's hope that today shows him a big W-I-N.

Family Fun in the Sun

Yes we are close to Halloween and I already saw Christmas decor at Target and Hallmark (heeellooo suburbs).  But it is about time I share a little of the family fun that we had this summer.  Nothing out of the ordinary...well except a trip to Sunny California and Mexico for Mama and Dad...but that will come later.  Here's a few snaps
