Happy Birthday, Happy Holloween and Congratulations...

WOW! I have had a very busy last 2 weekends. I am so exhausted but so happy. All of this craziness is very welcome in my world these days. You see, from February to October all we think about is baseball. Not that it is so bad but with baseball comes the absence of family, friends, holidays, birthday parties and weddings. In season, we wake up go eat "brunch" take Josh to field (30 min drive) then head back to get Rhett a nap, wake up... get ready for 7:05 game and go...get back about 11:30PM...sleep...repeat....again and again....and again for 8 months. I love the baseball part too...but all us being together is what I live for!
So as muy cansada as I am....I am savoring every moment.

So first off, the Birthday party. It was suppose to be at Spring Park but the rain came...and went but the mud and cold wet night stayed. So....we decided to get an inflatable slide from Todd Meckes and have it at the traditional "Jaynes" birthday place, Stony Point Activities building.

So this is how Rhett's birthday started.

I asked Rhett what he wanted for breakfast and he said, "pancakes!" So I fixed him Mickey Mouse pancakes and attempted a choo-choo train....but didn't work out too well.

So, it's Friday...It is very important that he sees the garbage truck. Daddy and Rhett waited and just like clockwork our very nice driver honked his horn for our little birthday boy, as he does every Friday morning.

Ok, DO NOT LET HIM FOOL YOU. I worked all morning on this thing fighting Rhett off the whole took me forever...Josh was gone and stepped in for the picture because I looked very frightful.

He loved it already...he had no idea what was coming later!

SUGARBAKERS- half chocolate chunk/ half vanilla...mmmmm good!

Rhett was so excited to finally see those candles lit again! It is an every day thing he asks for.

Rhett LOVES blowing out the candles!
He loved having all of his cousins at the party!

Rhett had a ball on the slide and was not scared at all! BIG thanks to Amy Rutledge for making this precious sweatshirt for Rhett!

Daddy had as much fun as Rhett....and came real close to busting the whole slide, not to mention a close call bouncing off the slide completely...I can see it now...."Willingham out for the season with broken tail bone." This pic might have gone along with it:
I finally found something that everyone enjoyed! So glad it rained!
Pinata time!
Mighty Jesse busted the thing WIDE OPEN!

It was a real hit!Amy gave me the idea of taking a picture of Rhett and Josh every year to see how he grows....Rhett, not Josh :)Yea! I survived my second birthday party! It was worth it all! We had so much fun! comes Halloween!

So...Halloween was a little different this year....great nonetheless.

ROLL TIDE! My grandmother Parker. She lives at Columbia Cottage.

Memaw Ruby....Josh think Rhett and Memaw look alike.

We didn't get to do much trick-or-treating. I had Bridesmaid luncheon and rehearsal. So we let Rhett go to Trunk-or-treat at Stony Point.

So now for the Congratulations! Brock and Brooke got married! Josh, Rhett and me were all in the wedding! We are so tired but it was so much fun!

And all in between...I was also building a house!! I will post those pictures soon!

I will also try and post some wedding pictures asap!
