On November 1st Ty Forrest Petty turned 4 years old. I cannot believe our baby boy is already four. It is crazy how it seems like yesterday that he was born, but at the same time it is difficult to remember life before him. I could have never known how my life would change on November 1st, 2005. Being a mother to this precious boy is a blessing and a gift that I am so grateful for. He brightens our lives everyday. He is so funny and full of life. He is loving and sweet and so silly. I love that he still lets me rock him and love on him and I wonder when that will end(which makes me sad). At the age of four he loves cars, coloring, painting, drawing, singing, and reading books. He is learning so much every day and amazing us constantly. Ty, you are a gift from God and we love you so very much!

Ty's 4th Birthday Party!

On November 1st we celebrated Ty's 4th birthday with a Larry Boy party at home. We had lunch after church at our house. The weather was beautiful! We played outside, made caramel apples, planted seeds, and broke a pinata. Ty had so much fun with his friends and family. It is so hard to believe that he is four. More about that in my next post. Here are some pics from the big day!

Trunk or Treat 2009

On October 25th we had Trunk or Treat at church. This is so much fun every year. The kids were really cute this year. Ty was a caterpillar, and Ansley was a butterfly. They had fun with their friends and cousins. Ansley became a pro at getting all the candy she could. I took lots of pics. Here are some of them.

Honeysuckle Hill Farm

On October 24th we went out to Honeysuckle Hill farm as a family. We usually go to Gentry's Farm each fall, but we decided to try out something different this year. It was so much fun! The kids had a blast as did mommy and daddy! There are a lot of pictures here because I just couldn't weed them out. We rode a cow train, went down spider slides, saw lots of animals, and jumped on a huge jumping pillow. Then we ate dinner there. You will see in the pictures the kids are dancing on the picnic tables. They were playing bluegrass music and Ansley got up on the table and started breaking it down! Ty joined her and they put on quite the show. I told Brian we should charge admission. It was hilarious. After dinner we rode the hayride and did the huge corn maze in the dark. Thankfully Brian has a good sense of direction or I would have spent the night in that maze! This tradition of going to a pumpkin farm every year is one of my favorite traditions we have started with our little family. How great to get away from everything and spend special time together in God's creation!
