October Fun!

Well we have had a very busy month....we started it off by taking Hudson on his first trip Missouri to visit Grandmommy and Grandaddy Lewis and all of our friends there. Since Todd was on Fall Break were were able to spend a long weekend there. We enjoyed dinner with friends, shopping with Grandmommy and a stroll downtown St. Charles. We also visited the school we both worked at last year and the kids I worked with while I was there. They were all so excited to meet Hudson and he was such a good boy while we were there.

Todd with Abby...she was in the classroom I worked in last year and I became very attached to her. Even when she would tell me now and fall to the floor I still cried my eyes out when I had to leave her. She was so happy to see us and especially LOVES her "Toddy"and we enjoyed getting to see her and see how much she has grown since we saw her last. We miss all our kids from last year but especially sweet Abby:)

Me and Hudson with all our favorite girls:) Amy, Bobbi, Tracy and Karen (Cindy must have been actually working) were the girls I worked with and became so close to. They were some of the first to find out about Baby Hudson and had to help me keep it a secret along with helping me with sweet Abby. They were amazing and I loved every minute at Castlio because of them. There were so many times after breaks I would come back to work not wanting to be there and they got me through it. Between the drama, gossip, making fun of my southern accent and lots and lots of laughter....they made my year. I miss them all so so much and want them to know just how much they mean to me:)

No trip to St. Louis is complete without taking a stroll downtown St. Charles. Todd grew up there and we took lots of trips there while we were dating. We were excited to take him down there for the first time.

Later that week...Zack, Cherith and Ella Kate came for a visit. Zack had to go out of town for work so Cherith and Ella Kate stayed here and we enjoyed every minute with them. We spent lots of time at Nana and Poppa's so that I could play with Ella Kate and Aunt Cherith got some quality time with Hudson. He loves her and she helped us out a lot while she was here. When it was pretty we spent some time outside so Ella could play. She loves being outside and running around the yard and playing in the leaves.

We tried all week to get some good pictures of Ella Kate and Hudson together but you can imagine trying to get a fifteen month old and an eight week old still long enough to take a picture. Luckily, we were able to snap a few cutes ones.

Ella Kate holding her "baby". She was so cute with him. Every time she would wake up from a nap or come into the room where he was she would pop that passy out and say "baby". She also liked trading pacifiers with him or if he was crying she would take him his. It was so precious. I can't wait to watch them grow up together and be the best of friends:)
