The Cutest Train Conductor EVER!

We had such a fun night. As soon as I put Bryan's costume on, I melted. He looked so adorable that I could not stop kissing him and taking pictures, of course! :) And I must say the pictures do not do him justice.

We went to eat with our friends, the McDowell's, and then we went to a few houses for candy. It was disappointing because no one was home. They just left bowls of candy out on their porches. We only passed out candy to 7 children. Anyway, other than no one being home, we had a great time of fellowship!

There are a whole lot more pics on our web albums...Click Here to see those!

Halloween's Past

Here is Bryan's First Halloween (2 months):

Here is his Second (14 months):

I can't wait for tonight! We are going to our friends house to eat, trick-or-treat, and pass out candy!

We'll post pics as soon as we can!

funny sayings

Bryan says:

"Scoop" for Scoot

"Goopy" for Goofy

"Down Up" if he wants up or down from something. This started because he kept saying "down" when he really wanted "up." So now he just says both.

"Squeeze" for PlayDoh

"E I Moo Moo" for Old McDonald Had a Farm

"Craynuns" for Crayons

One of his favorite things to listen to right now is "All I Wanna Do" by Sugarland. He'll ask for "more ooo ooo" over and over. He also LOVES tobyMac. He calls him "T Mac." So precious!

2 year check up

Bryan had his 2 year check-up this morning. He made an A+! Dr. Whitaker said he was very healthy and thought he looked great. He asked if Bryan knew about 20ish words. That was kind of funny because he knows WAY more than that. I think the doc was impressed. Actually, I know he was. When it was time to go Bryan told Dr. Whitaker, "thank you." The doctor started laughing :)

I was SO impressed and proud of B. He cooperated without crying! He had to get one shot. The look of pain on his face made me so sad, but he only wimpered a little...maybe had 2 tears...and got ok again. The nurse gave him some stickers so that made him VERY happy!

Here are his stats:
Height -36 1/2" (90%)
Weight -29lbs 13.5oz (50%)

No more check ups until 3!

speaking of Halloween...

I read this blog post last night after posting the random things about me. I loved it and feel the same way.

7 Random Things

Amy Lynn tagged me for this little meme. I think it's hard to think of 7 things about myself, but I'll give it a shot! :)

1. I've lived in 6 states and countless cities :) It's hard to pick my favorite place where I lived because there are great things about them all. I have very fond memories from Tulsa, Oklahoma.

2. I love Halloween. I know there are many evil things behind the holiday, but I just don't view it that way. I love dressing up, passing out candy, decorating, fall festivals, the weather, etc.

3. I repeated 8th grade twice. All of that was a big blur, so I can't remember exactly the reasons behind it, but it was not easy. My birthday is late August and that had some effect. My first 8th grade year was in Tulsa, and the second was in Signal Mountain, TN. It was a VERY difficult move from OK to TN so to say that my second 8th grade year was hard is an understatement. I was missing my friends bad! I made one great friend that year who is still in my life today. (allison!)

4. I don't like mushy apples. So yes, that means I don't like apple pie. Weirdo, I know.

5. I don't like cold cheese. For that matter, I don't like cold sandwiches except for PB&J.

6. I was named after my mom's baby dolls. She used to name them all Jamie. When mom and dad went to the hospital for me to be born they still hadn't settled on a name. Mom told Dad she used to name her dolls Jamie and he liked it. It just so happens that my mom's dad was James and my dad's dad is Ray (Dad's middle name is Ray too). So I'm Jamie Rae.

7. I wish I could redo my whole style. I would totally decorate my house vintage and dress vintage. I have a tendency to lean towards hippie in my clothing (especially in middle and high school) but now I just love all things vintage. I would have loved to live in the 50's.

Ok, so there are somethings you might or might not have known about me! I won't tag anyone, but if you decide to do it, leave me a comment so I can see 7 things about you!
