Halloween and Fall Fun!

Jackson is now 10 1/2 months and he has had his first Halloween! We started the festivities at the Georgia Aquarium. This is the first time Jackson has been there and he really enjoyed looking at all the fish. Mommy then carved some pumpkins before we were off to the neighborhood parade and costume contest. Jackson actually won again for cutest baby! So much fun! We then went over to our friend Laura's house and Jackson was able to play with some of his friends. We ended the evening back at home, and Jackson trick or treated at our neighbor's Bruce and Holly. It was so much fun! As far as new tricks up Jackson's sleeve, he has always been mezmerized by Daddy's blackberry, but now he will actually put it up to his ear as if he is listening. Also, every morning when he wakes up, I come into the room singing "You are my sunshine" and sit on the chair. His favorite game is then to hand me his blanket through the crib slats. After he hands me the blanket, I will toss it back into the crib and he will scramble around to pick it up and the game starts all over again. On another note, we have sadly retired the monkey costume. He sure did get a lot of use out of it!

Jackson loved to stand up and watch the fish swim by.

After Jackson claimed his prize for cutest baby!

Daddy was so proud of his little monkey!

I have never seen a cuter dog, monkey, ladybug, Minnie Mouse, or ducky!

Happy Halloween!

A scary monster!!

At this point in the night, Jackson did not want to cooperate with the pictures!

Fall has arrived! Jackson loves to play with all the leaves in his yard.

His favorite spot...hanging on the tree.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Congratulations on two Halloween wins!! He is just too cute. I can't get over how big he is getting. He looks like a little man standing next to that tree. Great pumpkin carving by the way!!

What amazing pumpkins, mom. You are a Halloween artist! Jackson is growing up so fast, and when I see him in those pictures I wish I could just pick him up and give him a big hug. Tell him his Noni and Granddaddy love him very much and are so sorry we missed his winning costume.
