We went the pumpkin patch today. It was a beautiful day to go! When we got there Camden didn't want to get down. He warmed up after about 10 minutes and then there was no stopping him. He loved walking around and "throwing" the little pumpkins. I guess he thought they were balls. We got some good "candid" shots this year. Just think next year we will have 3 little pumpkins! :)
Looking like such a little boy
2009 What a difference a year makes!
Look at this stem
Here he is throwing a pumpkin. See his hand and the pumpkin on the left side!
We have been so happy! Especially Camden. He wakes up happy and pretty much stays happy, unless he can't have something he wants! He is starting to repeat everything we say! It is so cute to hear his little voice. Tonight he was looking at a book and said baseball. He also told Kaitlyn bye when she got out the door for dance. He is such a sweet boy! I can't wait to see him with the baby.
Speaking of baby.....I will be 15 weeks Tuesday. Time is really flying by! I am growing and growing. I can definitely feel my stomach stretching out. Haven't been as tired lately, which is good since I have Camden to keep me awake! I go to the doctor November 4th and hopefully will schedule my sonogram to see what it is. We have names! Gracie Marie for a girl. Landry ? for a boy! Still working on that boy middle name....any suggestions???
Kaitlyn is doing great! They had an 80s day at school a couple of weeks ago! She looked so cute! And now side ponies are back in style, she wears them all the time. She is doing great in school, just signed progress reports and she is making a 100 in AP Math! I am so proud of her!
We have been busy packing! The house looks so weird with boxes everywhere and nothing on the walls. We have gone to using paper plates and plastic silverware. We move November 6th! We are excited! Time is flying when you are having fun!
We sold our house. It was on the market 8 days! We had seen a house before we got an offer but it had already sold, so when we got the offer we really started to look. I think we saw about 20-30 houses! This house was on the market when we started to look but was soon under contract. :( We thought it was a great house from the pictures on the internet but were unable to go see it. However, when we got an offer on our house, that weekend it came back on the market. The lending had fallen through with the other deal. So we immediately called our Realtor to go see it! We fell in love and made an offer that day! We negotiated with our buyers and the seller of this house and we got everything worked out! We close on the house November 6th. We can't wait. It has 4 bedrooms and an open kitchen to the big family room. It is still in the Boles, Martin school district for Kaitlyn. The best thing is there is not much to do to the house. We will come in and paint the rooms, of course. Kaitlyn is already designing her room. We would like to eventually get new counter tops in the kitchen, new carpet in the bedrooms and wood in the living room. But those things will come with time and money. We have a new baby coming in April, so any money we can save goes to the baby! We have already starting packing! It's amazing how much stuff you can gather in only 4 1/2 years in a house. We have done some cleaning out and donating! November 6th will be here before we know it!!!!
A stomach bug has hit the Sossamon household. Camden woke up Wednesday night throwing up. So I stayed home from school Thursday. He seemed much better by Thursday night except for a yucky tummy and no appetite. The kids did not have school Friday, so Aaron stayed home with him and Kaitlyn. Friday night around 7, Kaitlyn started to throw up. It was like every 20 minutes. Poor girl! Then about 11ish Aaron started throwing up. I managed to hold it off. Saturday morning I threw up once and just felt yucky. I stayed in bed ALL day! Aaron was feeling a little better and was able to take care of Camden. We are all starting to feel much better! Grandma Sossamon got married today to her longtime neighbor. They are so cute. So we went to their wedding and are now starting to pack. YES! We sold our house and are moving! That is a whole other post!!!!!
I am Mom to Kaitlyn, Camden and Landry. I love being a Mom. It is the most important job in the world, and I get to be a Mommy to 3 very special kiddos. I love teaching 1st grade and spending time with my family. Our favorite places to go are the Ranger games, movies, and Target.
