Quick update

It's been crazy around our house the last few days but I wanted to take a minute and post a few pictures.

Here are Josh and Peyton celebrating the win over Gravette last Friday after the game. Go Saints!

The next day we took Peyton to the Razorback game while Parker stayed at Nana's house. Peyton loves the band (especially the tuba's) so at the end of the game we went and sat next to them for a few minutes. He was in heaven!

Here is Peyton with his buddy, Will. Will and his family have sat in front of us the past few seasons. Peyton and Will are only a couple months a part. They enjoy cheering the Hogs on together each home game. With their outgoing personalities they keep those around us entertained for sure!

Last weekend, Nick, Reese, and Grandma Thomas came up from Texas. We were so glad to have them here but we did miss Auntie Meredith! Here's a picture of Ronnie, Jeana and Grandma with the three grandkids.

The boys with cousin Reese!

I'll post some pictures in the next couple of days of the boys dressed up in their halloween costumes. They turned out really cute. Parker did get his stitches out by the wonderful Dr. Brent on Wednesday. He did good and it was not near as bad as when they put them in. Parker is recovering great and it doesn't look like it's going to leave much of a scar.

Parker's first stitches and ER visit

Last night I thought I was being a good Momma by keeping by the boys out of the cold and not going to Shiloh's Jr. High game. However, we probably would have been better off going to the game.

I had just bathed both boys, put their Pj's on, read a couple of books to them and we were finally on our way to bed. Quickly I went to get something from the kitchen before tucking them in. Before I knew it, they started playing chase in the living room. I tried telling them to settle down, we are going to bed. However, before I could get the complete sentense out, I heard a loud bang. Peyton had ran into Parker which pushed him into the corner of the wall or our the hutch. We still aren't for sure which one. Blood was everywhere and I couldn't figure out where it was coming from. I first thought it was his nose, then his mouth but I soon reliezed it was his head. I didn't know what to do. This was the first big bloody accident we've had at our house and I was alone with both boys. Parker was crying louder than I've probably ever heard the poor boy cry before. Peyton also started screaming, "Carker's muddy! Carker's muddy!" (muddy aka: bloddy). I grabbed the phone and called my friend, Meghan, that lives down the street. I rushed the boys over to her house and she had her Dad meet us there who is a nurse. He also lives down the street. He got Parker cleaned up for me and thought he would need stitches for sure. So I met Josh, my parents and Josh's parents at the ER at 8:30pm last night. My parents took Peyton to sleep with them and Jeana waited with me. A BIG thank you to Jeana, our GiGi! Josh has a BIG game tonight (conference championship) so I told him to go home so he could get some rest. And after six hours of waiting at the ER and three stitches later, we were finally home at 3am. Poor baby will have to get the stitches removed in five days.

I have to brag on my little baby. He was so good last night through it all and couldn't have been better. When we finally got called to the back to get him a room, the nurse said there were 19 patients ahead of Parker and only 2 doctors there. I couldn't believe it! How could they do this to a sweet one year old little boy! Just put some stitches in and let him go home to get some sleep! Every nurse and doctor that came in the room to check on him couldn't believe how good and calm he was being. He had the most patience out of all of us there, except when they held him down to put the stitches in. I couldn't watch that part and stood at the bottom of the bed holding onto his feet and praying to Jesus to take his pain and fear away.

Here are some pictures of our big brave boy! I hope we don't have to go back to the ER for a very long time!

Football Update & Pumpkin Patch

Shiloh won again last night. We beat Prairie Grove 49-8. Our record is 5 and 1. I can't believe that we are half way through the season! During half time the cheerleaders put on a cheer clinic with the elementry girls. When they all got out on the field ready to perform, Peyton said, "There's my girlfriend!" We asked him which one and he started pointing to several and telling me how pretty they looked. So if you are a Momma of a girl, watch out, Peyton Floyd is already on the look out.

We took the boys to the pumpkin patch in Tontitown today. They loved running around and being silly together. Peyton's favorite part was looking through the basket of gourds (he wondered why they didn't have faces on them like Jerry the Gourd from Veggie Tales.) Parker liked trying to pull the wagon. We came home with two pumpkins and two gourds. Happy Fall!

Sweet Moment with Peyton

Friday night, before the Shiloh game, I met my parents for dinner at Market Place. When we were leaving my Mom asked Peyton if he wanted to ride in their car to the game because she had bought him a new booster seat. He was alittle hesitate because I wouldn't be riding in the car with him. (He's a big time Momma's boy!) Well, he finally decided he wanted to ride in the new booster seat in Nana & Grandaddy's car. As I was buckling him in, he looked at me and his sweet little voice said, "Momma, I'm scared but I will trust in the Lord with all my heart." I was in shock. He said it perfectly clear. I knew he learned that verse from Miss Jilly Bean at his preschool but I didn't think he would say it during the right time. Wow, the mind of a little boy who is barely three years old! I looked up at my Mom and she said in her sweet Nana voice, "Awe, he not only knows it but he knows when to apply it." I was so proud of my boy and pray that he will always hold God's promises close to his heart.

Works for Me

You may have seen this product before but it's new to me. A few weeks ago Blaire's sister in law, showed me this product that she uses to label her girl's sippy cups. So I decided to order some after hearing such good things about it. They're called Bumpy Name Orbit Labels and now I'm loving them for my kid's sippy cups too. They are non-adhesive, reusable, dishwasher safe and can not be removed by your toddler. I ordered the blue labels with a smiling face on it and plan on ordering the green ones soon. So far I don't have any complaints. Last night I noticed on the episode of Jon & Kate plus 8, they had them on all their kid's sippy cups. Here's the website if your interested and want to order some

Peyton's Party

I was looking though pictures today and reliezed I never posted pictures from Peyton's party last week. We had it at Chick fil A and it was great. The kids loved playing outside, coloring Veggie Tale sheets and eating nuggets, cake, and icecream together. Our friends the Kennedy's came and the Grandparents. Here are some pictures from that night. Thanks to everyone for making it so special for Peyton. Especially our friends, Jim and Stefanie, who manage the Chick fil A and had the tables decorated with activties and baloons waiting for the kids when we got there.
