Sad to report that Layna-bug is sick with a cold. So being that I was home with her today I decided it would be fun to just stay in our Jammies all day. My hope was that she would take a killer nap because she was so *comfy*...well my hopes faded when she woke up after 45 minutes. Its been a rough day! Needless to say when I broke out the camera tonight she started grinning and shouting 'CHEESE'. WOW!! Do I even say 'CHEESE'?? After snapping a few pictures she looks up at me and says 'Mommy..MORE' I guess I take a lot of pictures :) Still pretty cute for a SICKO huh??

Grocery Shopping :)

After keeping this Walmart Grocery Cart in the closet for a few months, I decided it was time to break it out! Well...she loves it! She pushes it all around and loves to 'fill' her grocery cart. I'm such a sucker for all these toys!! I have a *very* overindulged 17 mo old at the moment. Ohh well..I'm just stocking up on all the cool toys so that she can share them with a future sibling right??!

Rach and Billy came to visit!!

Layna and I were so excited to see Rachel and Billy last Friday. They came in town for Mizzou's Homecoming but made time to visit us Friday morning. Even though it was only a couple of was a great to see them. Thanks again guys for the Peppermint Mocha..MY FAV!! BTW-This second picture is ADORABLE!!! Miss you guys! Move HOME soon!

Pumpkin Patch!

This Sat. we took a family trip to Theis Farm Pumpkin Patch. We met our good friends Laura, Dave and their two boys Nick and Michael. We had a blast! They had a huge play area made of straw with mazes, slides, swings, and towers. I took a ton of pictures but here are just a few!

A Weekend Away!

My parents were nice enough to watch Layna this weekend so that Karl and I could have our first weekend away since Layna was born. We drove to INDY on Friday, went out to dinner and had a relaxing evening. The next morning we drove to Huntington, a VERY small town in IN to our friend Brian's wedding. We had a VERY good time catching up with old college friends! Congrats Brian and Gwen!
