That morning, his little friend Maggie came to spend some time with us. Gavin got his "birthday love". . .
We marked his On his birthday we started a very "big boy" thing. . .Potty training!! Boy. . .has THAT been an adventure! Actually I'm very proud of him, he's caught on quite quickly and done great with it! Here he is sporting some of his "big boy undies". . .and of course his cowboy boots.
Which brings me to our next "birthday" event. Gavin's gift from us for his Birthday was a date to the Rodeo. We had a great family outing and let me tell you. . .the child has YET to stop talking about it. He's my little cowboy. . .
The whole family went and we had a great time. We were all pretty surprised Mom & Dad joined us for the Rodeo, but it shows the lengths Grandparents will go to for thier Grandchildren. . .Gavin was thrilled to have them there, along with Brandon & Jody.
Last weekend he participated in his first "church performance". Since it was his first time performing I wasn't sure what he would do once he got on stage, but have no fear, he was quite the "ham". Yes, you are not seeing things. . he has on a "halo". No comments needed. . .
As you can see things have been busy around here. . . thankfully the Birthday celebrations have come to an end. . .it's a good thing. . Now we have to get ready for Christmas!!

And here's some comical ones. We tried for Christmas Card photos on Saturday. . .Whew. . .
OK Gavin, you have to sit. . .
Removing the props. . .I think he's going for the touchdown here. . .
Could you look at the camera!?!?!?
Taking a 3 year old's pics is such a challenge!! Especially when you add in that my Mom, Aunt & Uncle AND their two dogs went with us!! We were all exhausted by the end of that adventure!

Let me set the scene. . .
We had taken my Grandmother to dinner and was returning her to her home. My Grandmother lives in a Retirement Community that has Independent Apartments (where she lives), Assisted Living (where my other Grandmother lived before she passed away in Feb) and a Nursing Facility. It was raining lightly, so I had the windshield washers on. It was just Granny, Gavin & I in the van, Daddy had driven separately.
Going down the road the windshield washers made that "squeak" noise that they do sometimes when it's not quite wet enough. . .Gavin in his innocent voice loudly announces "Meee meeee, I fink you passsssseeedd Gassssss!!" (Translated: MeeMee, I think you Passed Gas). We all got quite a chuckle. . .
Then we left MeeMee and drove past the Assisted Living building and sweetly Gavin says "That's where Ganny used to live". I replied "Yes, it is". He said "She's gone sleepy sleep with Jesus now, right??" That's right Gavin, she's gone sleepy sleep with Jesus.

We went to the Pumpkin Patch this past weekend with our dear friends Marshall & Lisa, and of course their two boys and had a great time. Here's just a select few of pictures I took. . .
Gavin is on the search. . .for his perfect pumpkin. . .
Come on Daddy. . .I might need some helpCarson, let me show you how it's done. . .
Come on Parker, let's me & you do some exploring!
Something else Gavin kept a close hold on that day was Lisa. . .he loves her!
Look at that sweet boy! (This is Carson)
Let me at them. . .Horses. . .here I come!Don't worry Mom, you don't have to walk with me. . .me & my Cowboy friend can handle it!
I love this picture for two reasons. 1) the look on Gavin's face. . .he is loving every minute of this and is thrilled. 2) Lisa looks so happy & proud of Gavin, Now that is a true friend. . .standing there waiting through the LONG horse ride line, chasing and keeping up with 18 month old twin boys and STILL has a smile on her face when it's Gavin's turn. :o)
The ride is over. . .thanks Horsey for a great ride!So we had a great visit to the Pumpkin Patch & Farm. We also ran into other friends, the Smiths who were just as excited over the horses and our friends the Higginbothams, who we miss and it was so good to see! Lots of great fun!! It was a great day overall!
