Cullen's First Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, we stayed at home.  We ate a small Thanksgiving dinner and spent a few hours outside, "camping" in our backyard.  It was fun.  Cullen loved it.  Here are some pictures.

Cullen is 4 Months Old!

Our sweet little Cullen turned 4 months old on Monday.  It is hard for me to believe that it has been 4 months since his birth... it is just as hard to imagine my life without him.  I sing "You Are My Sunshine" to him quite often because he lights up my life so much.  People ask me all the time if he always smiles so much and the answer is yes.  He loves it when people look at him and talk to him.  He usually will talk right back.  Lately, he talks all the time: to his pacifier, mobile, teethers, other babies, etc.  He did well at his check up.  He is on the tall side and the light weight side, but the doctor isn't too concerned.  The pictures below were taken about 3 hours after he had his shots.  He is so good!  I hope you enjoy the many faces of Cullen :)

14 Weeks

Here are some pictures of Cullen in his bear outfit that Grammie made.  He still has room to grow into it, so you might see more pictures of him in it later.

Halloween Party

This year, we were unable to do our normal thing for the trick-or-treaters... but we found other ways to have fun with Halloween.  We threw a Halloween party for our small group. It took two weeks to decorate the house and it was worth it.  The main feature of the party was dinner followed by a couple of silly party games.

Grant and I served a full course meal including punch and hors d'oeuvres, tomato soup, bread, pot roast with carrots and potatoes, salad, and pumpkin spice pudding for dessert.  According to the Emily Post etiquette book, it was not a formal dinner because we did not have servants.  Grant and I served the meal to all 20 of our (adult) guests plus we served ourselves.

At the party there were 22 adults and 4 babies.  Unfortunately, I was very busy with the meal and did not get many pictures of our guests.  The costumes were great!  We had so much fun! Hopefully we can do it again.

Beach Baby

Cullen went on his first business trip with Daddy a couple of weeks ago.  While Daddy was working, Cullen and I went to the aquarium for a little while.  He seemed to like it.

After work, we all went to the beach.  Cullen hated it because of the wind.  We still managed to get some good pictures.
