Pumpkin Maze

I love October! I love it because it jumpstarts the Holidays. Halloween has been a favorite day of mine since childhood, and now that Bubba's here it's even better. I can't wait to dress him up in a costume and parade him around next week. I don't know what he's going to be yet, but it will be good.

Tonight Anthony and I took Bubba to the Pumpkin Patch. They have an amazingly, huge Pumpkin Maze. I overheard a woman say it took her two hours to go through! Crazy! But then I saw a picture, and thought it would probably take me longer than two hours. So, ofcourse we did not go through the pumpkin maze this year. Definitely when Bubba is older. There was a lot of other stuff to do there though. They had a giant pumpkin bounce house, hay rides, pony rides, petting zoo, face painting, pumpkin shooting range, haunted house, food, photobooths . . . endless fun.

We worked up quite an appetite with all that pumpkin fun, so we were pretty famished and headed off to Tracy to find some grub. After arguing with Anthony for what seemed like hours over whether we should go to Olive Garden or Famous Daves, I gave in and we ended up at Famous Daves. The food was actually really good, but we wont tell Anthony that.
After dinner, Anthony put his cornbread into a to-go container and said, "The cornbread fits in there perfecty. Just like you fit in with us perfectly, Bubba. Your Mommy and Daddy love you soooo much." It just touched my heart. I love seeing Anthony and Landon interact. Bubba is happiest with Mommy and Daddy together. I feel the same way. I am so happy and so content just spending time with my family. I am at such a joyful time in my life, and I hope it just gets better from here. I am reminded of the song by Edwin McCain. His words express my feelings best . . .

And these are the moments,
I thank God that I'm alive.
And these are the moments,
I'll remember all my life.
I've found all I've waited for,
And I could not ask for more.
Looking in your eyes,
Seeing all I need.
Everything you are,
Is everything to me.
And these are the moments,
I know heaven must exist.
And these are the moments,
I know all I need is this,
I have all I've waited for,
And I could not ask for more.
I could not ask for more than this time together,
I could ask for more than this time with you.
Every prayer has been answered,
Every dream I've had's come true.
Right here in this moment,
Is right where that I meant to be.
Ohh here with you, here with me.

We love that song too. This summer Paul created a family slideshow for us using that song... so precious!

I hope we can all get together soon!
