Everyone's Busy

Image
As one of my not so kind or subtle coworkers reminded me yesterday, this is a busy time for everyone. I thought it was just me, but now I remember that there is a little thing called OSU Homecoming today, so everyone's busy. Thank goodness she relayed that information, or I would have been completely in the dark. :) As you can tell, I'm not quite over it, but we've moving on...

I know we are all busy living life because my blogroll has been pretty pathetic lately. I’m always excited for 5 p.m. to roll around so I can check my blogs and see what everyone has been up to, but lately there are few if any updates waiting on me. If only more of my friends would blog, but that’s a post for another day.

Since Halloween is now only days away, I thought I’d share some fun photos/videos from the annual Taylor Pumpkin Carving Extravaganza. (I came up with that name so maybe Kyle and Zach will be excited about it next year. I’m not holding my breath.) Enjoy! I will post Homecoming pi…

Fall Favorites

Image
I was telling Asher my favorite season is fall this past weekend. He said, “What’s season?” So I explained it to him what a season was. To my surprise, he actually remembered later that day when we were telling Mom all about it. It’s so fun to see how his mind works. So here is a little glimpse into how my mind works and 10 reasons why fall is my absolute favorite:

1. Changing Leaves
2. Cozy Sweaters
3. Halloween
4. Football Season
5. Heated Seats
6. Cinnamon Cider Scentsy
7. Hot Chocolate
8. Pumpkins
9. Boots
10. Frosty Mornings

This past weekend we carved pumpkins with the Taylor clan and made big anniversary plans! Stay tuned for posts on both.

Brad's Visit and Conner's Dedication

Image
The past couple of months there has been a lot going on in the Fox family. I love this because it means we are making an effort to get together more frequently, which is so much fun! Kyle's brother, Brad, is in the military and is spending a year overseas. This is his second deployment and we were so glad to hear that he was going to be able to come home for a few weeks in September. It was a short trip, but while he was here, the whole family got together at Grandma and Grandpa Fox's house. This visit was Brad's first opportunity to meet Conner. Here are a few of the photos.

Brad and Conner
Greg surprised us with a new haircut. He'd just gotten back from a biker trip, Can you tell? 
No one can make Conner smile like Papa! He got a little too excited, though, and ended up peeing on poor Stacie. That's good training for her! 
Somehow Kyle ended up with a rabbit on his head. You never know what's going to happen when you're with the Foxes!

Asher Turns 2!

Image
I can’t believe this is possible, but after the marathon posting from last week, I still have catching up to do. That will have to wait for another day, though, because this past weekend Asher turned 2! We celebrated with a family party on Oct. 2 (the actual day of his birth) at Mom and Dad's house.

Stacy did such a great job planning the party. This year's theme was horses because Asher LOVES horses. I had such a great time at the party and felt so blessed to be an aunt not only to this little guy, but also to Conner and soon-to-be-born Henry. Family is everything to me, and it's so special to get to spend time with the ones I love. Below are some pictures that pretty much sum up the day.

The party invite! 
This is a bad picture, but I was trying to get all of the decorations. We were in charge of bringing balloons, and yes, that is a big horse balloon. Asher loved it!
This poster had a picture of Asher from each month of his life (plus a few more). Stacy put it up earl…
