Fall time FUN!

Despite the clouds on was actually perfect fall weather!
We loaded Turner up in his new red wagon and went for a nature walk!
Grandma & Grandpa-THANK YOU so much for the wagon. Turned LOVED it! No more strollers for our little guy! Here are a few pictures from our fun-filled weekend!
Loving every single minute of his ride!
My two love bugs! I am so blessed to be surrounded by such sweetness
Happy "early" Halloween!!
This is the pumpkin that Aunt CC painted for Turner's birthday party!
On Saturday night, our wonderful adoption agency hosted their annual Fall Hayride in Norman! It was so much fun :) Turner loved running in the woods and tasting smores! It's hard to believe that a year ago we went and Turner was only a few weeks old! This is a picture of our dear adoption buddies Molly & sweet Saddie. Is she not a doll!
One of my favorite things about Fall is the turning of the leaves! Luckily our neighborhood has lots and lots of trees and this year they are absolutely gorgeous!

Turner & mommy at the hayride! I promise Turner "livened" up after this picture :) He wasn't too sure what to think at first.....

On Saturday, Turner got to experience his 1st Cowboy Football weekend! He was such a little champ. He loved tailgating and playing with his buddies, Grey & Rawley.

Here are a few pictures from our fun weekend~

Yes, even at a sporting event, Turner was still looking cuter than ever!

We got a front row seat to the OSU parade and saw many of OSU's celebrities....

First, Coach Gundy

Then Pistol Pete....

Just another cute picture of my little love bug striking a pose

Turner, Mommy and #4 Patrick Levine! Pretty cool :)

One of the highlights of the weekend was seeing good friends! I am so blessed to share life with some amazing life-long friends

Patiently waiting for the parade to begin.....

a few more celebrities...Trisha Yearwood

Garth Brooks....Lolly was beside herself when down the street came Garth Brooks leading the parade!

Aunt CC and some of her friends

Turner and his buddies Grey & Rawley. They had so much fun running around and just being boys! Dirt, rocks, and doesn't get much better than that

Can't believe we've been out of college 9 years! Man how time flies! We're just missing my dear friend Katie who came after we took this picture

As you can tell, it was an AWESOME weekend! John & Eric grilled baby back ribs, jalapenos, brats, and Crystal was the hostess with the mostest, making several great dips, sausage balls, little smokies and the list goes on and on....and of course no tail gate would be complete without mom bringing tons of goodies too!

Thanks for making Turner's 1st OSU experience a day to remember!

Hotdogs, a Hay Ride, & Hoe Down Fun!!!

Tomorrow is officially Turner's birthday but we had his birthday bash this Saturday...and boy was it a BASH! At one time we had 54 people with nearly 20 of those being kids!
Can we say CRAZY???
But we had a ball. The kids enjoyed a hayride (although the older kiddos thought it was boring because Pops was driving too slow), hot dogs and pumpkin painting.
Tomorrow we will be celebrating Turner's special day by spending it with "C". We are so excited to see her! Not only will we be celebrating Turner's birthday but rejoicing in how much she loves Turner .
Our little Pumpkin is ONE!
He seems to amaze us every single day. He is getting so independent but still loves to snuggle and give slobbery kisses. He talks all the time and looks at us like we should understand every single word...its adorable! He loves to climb on things and explore the back yard. He loves music and likes to "shake his booty"! I cannot believe this year has already flown by....Turner, you are forever the greatest gift from God and we are so humbled that he knew all along the plans for our family that included YOU, our little angel. We love you with all of our hearts!

Turner's new tri-cycle from Lolly & Pops! and the tent with 350 balls....Thanks Aunt CC!!

Turner liked all the presents :)
All of Turner's friends

Miss Kathy came to Turner's birthday party and he was so happy to see her!!!

Yummy to my tummy!
Turner LOVED everyone singing happy birthday to him...he kept throwing his head back and would laugh and laugh until.....everyone started clapping at the end...and that startled him a bit and he started crying :) But that was quickly stopped by him tasting his yummy birthday cake

It's a family tradition that Grandma Rose makes all of our birthday cakes, and Turner was no exception. Once again, Grams made a delicious birthday cake for Turner. We were so blessed she got to spend Turner's special day with us. We love you Grams

Aunt Georgia & Uncle Charles came all the way from Tulsa to celebrate Turner's special day!

Grandma & Grandpa even enjoyed the Hay Ride
Papa and Turner had fun playing in the hay!

Turner and his sweet Aunt CC

Isn't this the greatest picture ever! Oh Turner how we love YOU!

Turner had the cutest Hayride EVER thanks to his creative Aunt CC...Thanks for making it extra special Aunt CC :)
