Happy Halloween

Well, this post will be short and sweet since I have to finish packing for my 7am flight tomorrow morning. Halloween was fun. We went to Trunk and Treat at Colony Baptist Church, where Kaylyn goes to school. Nia and Papa met us there. Afterwards, we went to my cousin's house for a Halloween Party.

Seeing Red

Kaylyn's school celebrated a "Say No to Drugs" week and had activities all week that centered around a "red" theme.

Monday - They closed the door on drugs by decorating it with red objects
Tuesday - They wore their shirts backwards to turn their back on drugs
Wednesday - They released red balloons with a pledge to stay away from drugs
Thursday - They wore red shirts and sunglasses to block drugs out of their lives
Friday - They will wear red socks and have a red party (red punch, red desserts, red get the idea)

So tonight, after I got home from work, Kaylyn and I baked red velvet cupcakes with pink frosting and red sprinkles to bring to her party. Kaylyn poured the ingredients into the mixer, lined the cupcake pan with paper liners, and sprinkled the cupcakes with red sugar when they were done. Meanwhile, busy little brother wandered into the kitchen to see what all the excitement was about. Hope the cupcakes are good.

Davis Williams Family Tree Blog

I know that I mentioned this briefly on a previous post, but if you haven't already visited you should check out Brian's new Davis Williams Family Tree blog. He's done a great job on it and it looks fantastic. He is featuring special theme days such as "Tombstone Tuesday" and "Wordless Wednesday". I cannot believe how much information he has gathered and the number of great pictures he has collected. Check it out.

A Pirate's Life for Jack

Well, Brian and I were watching Jack run around the house the other day and we thought he looked suddenly taller to us. I decided to put his Woody costume on to make sure it still fit with Halloween just around the corner. The poor guy couldn't even be buttoned up over his cute toddler belly. We returned the costume to Target, but there were absolutely no Woody or Buzz Lightyear 2T costumes to be had in 3 stores. We opted for a pirate costume in which he will be equally as cute in. No pictures to post yet....coming soon.

Fresh Look for a Fresh Start

Well, I will attempt yet again to keep this blog current. I am proud of and impressed by Brian's new family tree blog and I am inspired to start up yet again. I hope to update regularly and post new news and pics as they come along. Come back and visit often!

9 days to go.....

Well, 9 days and counting until Brian and I set off for our Disney Cruise. Hard to believe that it will be so soon. I haven't had time to get really excited since there is so much going on between now and then. We have Halloween coming up and the Davis family will be dressed as follows:

Brian -Mickey Mouse
Charlyn - Minnie Mouse
Kaylyn - Tinkerbell
Jack - Woody

Will definitely post those pics before we go.
