Patiently Waiting...

We have all been waiting for mom and Josh to come visit. I wish Keith and Kyle could come as well, but they have some things going on. These pictures are funny for us because this is what we do on our nights. Lots of tv watching and messing around with Riley. He's so cute when he falls asleep on us. HURRY UP YA'LL! INDY IS WAITING!! Oh, and us as well :)

Halloween Party

First off, happy 4 married months to us! I know, we have many, many more years but I just want to enjoy the beginning. Yesterday was the longest day ever! Our neighbor Ryan invited us to visit his family's farm about 2 hours south of Indy. We left around 9:30am and spent most of the day there. We toured the farm (huge), met the family (funny people), and practiced shooting guns. It was alot of fun. Riley loved being outdoors and not being on a leash but he did NOT like the gun shots. The noise was too much for him. I ended up driving us all home b/c Ryan is also a volunteer Sheriff and he was on patrol all night so he hadn't slept.

We got home, ate dinner, and got ready for Bob and Mike's Halloween Party. It was fun and there were many funny costumes. I didn't get a picture of them but here are a few...
This was taken by Bob. Pickle, their dog is dressed up as a turtle.

This is Mike and Bob. Bob made his own costume :) They know how to throw a party. There was so much food. The cupcakes were a pretend grave yard. I swear Martha Stewart decorated and made all the food!

John thinks I look like Julia Roberts. Haha. It was a fun night we were just so exhausted (and were drinking lemonade b/c we're both on antibiotics. Riley should have won best costume. He was such a sport and didn't mind his outfit at all. The hat some off but otherwise it was fun for him. There were other dogs for him to play with. He was so tired as well, he could barely keep his eyes open. We got home about 11:30 and were in bed by midnight.

Today we are just cleaning. John went get me doughnuts this morning. I cleaned upstairs, he downstairs and we are ready for mom and Josh to get here on Thursday!! It's only 2:30 but I plan on relaxing the rest of the day! I hope everyone has a great week, I'm ready for my 4 day work week!

It's getting cooler..

It is getting cooler/ colder in Indy! Last week was cloudy with alot of rain and temps in the 40's. Yuck! Today however was very nice, sunny and 70! There hasn't been too much going on here, which is why I haven't blogged recently. We got Riley a Halloween treat from the dog bakery. We had to hurry and take this picture before the ghost had his head bitten off!

I went to a carving pumpkin party last week at my friend Kate's house. It was alot of fun and this is my pumpkin. I did trace it, I'm not that good of an artist.
We have had some really cold days and John has made 2 amazing gumbo's so far. We have alot frozen which is also really good for our future freezing days. Well, I'm off to eat a crawfish stuffed chicken so have a great night!

This past week has defiantly been the beginning of fall. Last weekend I went to Louisiana and had a blast! It was too short and I wish I could have stayed longer than 2 days. I'll be back for a week during Christmas break so I know I'll get to see everyone then. When I got back from LA it was a whole lot cooler than before I left. All week has been in the higher 50's and low 60's. I was dying for some gumbo last night. It was one of those cloudy, cold evenings and I wanted nothing more than to drive to Soup's for a big bowl of seafood gumbo. This weekend has been really good. Yesterday I went get a pedicure with a friend and did some Christmas shopping. I'm really on the ball this year and that makes me really happy. Today has been so laid back! This morning I made beignets and they were so good. For lunch I put all the ingredients for chili con queso in the crock pot and we had that with chips and some left over roast I had made a couple days ago. The Colts game has been on all afternoon. However, Riley is a Saints fan. So is his momma. Could our child get any cuter???
Our Sunday. Notice the shirts?

Today we put out our Halloween decorations. We'll be picking up pumpkins next weekend.

This is John changing out the screen doors. Now it's time for the glass to go in it's place. We change them twice a year. I know winter is coming when the glass goes in and I know summer is coming when the screen goes in. We don't have much planned this week. I'm still loving my work hours. We're going to have dinner with John's cousin Melissa on Wednesday and his parents of Thursday. Hopefully the week will go by quick, I'm ready for another weekend!!
