Hap"Bee" Halloween

I know this is overdue, but I'm terrible about keeping up with this damn blog. I wish I was more like Jenni and her sister Kim who you can always count on to have interesting and frequent updates.

Halloween was rather uneventful this year. We didn't have a single trick-or-treater show up at our house and Waylon is too young to really know what's happening. Our friend Angie Dial bought Waylon a bumblebee costume before Waylon was born since Cole and I were bees last year. It was a little small, but he looked adorable nonetheless. I had high hopes that the three of us could dress up together, but his daddy wasn't feeling it this year.

Here are some pics of Waylon in his costume, with his cousin Klaudia (you can't tell, but she was a unicorn), and W with his BFF Oscar. I threw in a picture of Cole and me dressed up last year so you could see him in all his glory!

Land of Enchanment? Not This Time!

In early October we headed to the Land of Enchantment (that's New Mexico if anyone cares). It was a short trip and didn't go as well as planned. Cole got the flu the day before we flew out and had to go have 2 IV bags put in. We were worried we'd have to cancel the trip, but he woke up the next morning feeling human again, so we headed out with great expectations. The first day we were there was wonderful....we got to do lunch with my pal Leslie in El Paso, then headed to Las Cruces and stopped by Cole's old firm to catch up with our friends. That night we attended the "Cowboy Benefit Dinner for Breast Cancer Research" with our BFF's Blaine and Joy Mynatt and had a great time! That's where the fun stopped. The next morning I woke up feeling like I'd been hit by a truck. There is nothing worse than being sick on vacation. We had to cancel our visit with our friends Cate and Jon, which was made all the more disappointing because Waylon and their daughter Ella were scheduled to have their first of many dates. Cole and Waylon went to watch football with Blaine and I stayed in our hotel and slept until almost 7 PM...poor me. Cole and I were disappointed that things didn't go as well as we'd hoped, but were still happy we got to see the friends that we did. Here are some pics of Blaine and Joy's kids Asa and Gracie, and Asa and Waylon.
