Happy Halloween

Tonight was our ward Truck or Treat party. It was lots of fun to see all of the great costumes. They even handed out prizes for the best costumes.

Sorry the picture is really bad. We had to use our old camera because we couldn't get the timer to work on our new one. If you can't tell Tyson is Jim Bob the Animal Control man and I'm a kitty and Hank is a puppy that Tyson, I mean Jim Bob, has rescued.

Another blurry picture...Sorry

That's right! Our little baby boy/puppy got third place in the child's category. We are so proud of him. There was even another little boy with the exact same costume on but Hank wore it better!

I had to add this one too because his tongue is out like a puppy and I thought it was cute.

Six months

I can't believe it but our little boy is six months old. Yesterday at the doctors he weighed 18lb 2oz - 80% and is 27 1/2 in long - 75%. He is growing up so fast. He starting sitting on his own at five months but now he is doing so much better at not tipping over. He's not crawling yet but he is always getting up on his hands and knees and rocks back and forth. I know it's only a matter of time until he's crawling around. Even though he's not "crawling" he will get where he wants with a series of rolls and twists. He sure is a mover. He loves his daddy very much and always has a huge grin on his face when Tyson gets home. Hanks likes to sit by the window and watch for Tyson to pull up. I haven't taken six month pictures yet but they will be taken soon. These are a few recent pics of our little Hank.

When Hank and I went home for a week Susan put Hank in the toy closet. He was so excited. There were toys everywhere and he didn't know which one to play with first.

Carving Pumpkins

For FHE tonight we were invited to our friends, Steve and Liz Puffer, to carve pumpkins. We had so much fun. Steve is a 4th year dental student and carpools with Tyson. They are also the managers of our apartment complex. They have three little girls that are full of energy.

This is how Hank spent the night.

These are our pumpkins. Hank worked so hard on his pumpkin. It turned out so well.

Hank loved his pumpkin.

Happy little boy!

More of Hank

Sorry but our blog has really become just a Hank-fest but he's the cutest one in the family so why not right.

Hank is doing so good at sitting up all by himself.

Hank watching one of his favorite shows, Tarzan.

Hank helping me with the dishes. He got mad that his walker stopped him from reaching the dishes so I gave him a paper cup and he was in heaven.

Blast from the past. Hank in one of Tyson's baby outfits. Totally 80's but still cute.

Hank watching football with his daddy. It starts out young...

Hank loves this lizard. He held it in his mouth like this for about 10 minutes. It was really funny. He almost growled while he chewed on it.

Tyson bought some crab pods and a buoy. Hank thought it was the perfect toy.

Strike a pose

Chewy on the rope

Tyson is very good at rocking Hank to sleep. It's almost instant, just a few minutes and Hank is out. He usually ends up in some weird position that doesn't really look that comfortable.

I just had to include this picture because I thought he was so cute.

The other morning I put Hank down on his blanket and walked around the corner into the kitchen. Just a few minutes later Hank was "talking" really loud so I went to see what he was talking about and this is what I found. He thought it was pretty funny.

A gentleman (tourist) was kind enough to take our picture. We were all smiling cause he knew how to count to three.... at least he tried too.

This is the one that cut my thumb.

Brett invited me to go sturgeon fishing. It was a lot of fun. We caught 8 "shakers" which means that they were too small to keep. I had fun though, they fight pretty hard. They have sharp spines down their backs and sides and if you are not careful they will cut your hands. (found that out the hard way).

Josh said I wasn't pulling my weight, I didn't follow.

We got Crabs!!

This is how Josh ruined his pants, shoes, and hat. We did have lots of fun though.
