Fast Forward

I've been a little behind in updating life with the Willingham's. So I'll have to give you the quick version of the last 6 weeks. I hope the pictures help.

In absolutely no order (because it's more fun that way).. This weekend we met the parentals and sib at Leando Plantation for Civil War days. Here are the menfolk with the cannon. Large guns make them very happy.

My boys like to play X-box together. I guess it's like building houses or working the fields in the old days. They talk, strategize, and Dad gets to give some wonderful life lessons in the process (The lesson this day was "Don't choke your brother. He's the only one you're gonna get".)

Halloween happened on time. Here are the boys right before trick or treating. Ryan went all Cheap-O Ninja. Josh was a pirate. I hope we are maybe leaving the days of those store bought costumes that hang around forever. Josh lost his eye patch 10 minutes before it was time to leave, so I had to draw it in. We never have found it.

Here are some close ups of their pumpkin designs. Ryan did a little ghost.

Josh wanted a scary pumpkin. Are you trembling in your boots yet? I know my hand was trembling from carving out those teeth. And I won't show you what it was supposed to look like! :)

This is the Anal One sorting his Halloween Haul. It made him happy, and me too. At least I'm not the only one!

Ryan's birthday was fun. I can't believe he is 10. He is such a great guy. I can definitely say he is well on his way to being a wonderful man, even if it hurts a bit to say it out loud because I'm not ready for that life change.

Nothing brings brothers together like cake and ice cream. I enjoy every moment of harmony I can get!

And that's the fast forward of the last 6 weeks. We've been busy, and blessed in so many ways. As we head into Thanksgiving, I can't wait to see what God has in store.

Love the pictures! And I got a chuckle from Chris's life lesson and wondering where the eye patch will turn up. Miss you!
