I have a lot to post about.  yesterday was cole's birthday party and we are going to have a few days worth of pics from that event.  but before i recount the details from the fabulous birthday, here are a couple of pictures from tonight.  we dressed up for halloween and went to the fall festival at our church.  
cole was an aviator.
i was a lion.  

brenner was a cowboy 
(i told him that didn't count because he wears cowboy boots 
everyday but he protested any other outfit)

early presents.

so in honor of cole's approaching birthday, we got him a couple new fancy toys.  beware, when you see these toys, you are going to want to run out and get them for your children.  
can you feel the sarcasm yet???

 yes, that is a paper towel roll.  don't judge us.
and then there is the box. brenner jumped on this fun toy too (ignore his man thigh).

nothing but the best for the campbells!

jammin' jammies.

here are my spiffy new jammies.  what do you think?  i cried when mom brought out the camera (again!) and i just kept crying until she gave me something good to hold like the remote.  then i let her get some good pictures.  what?  i am just making her work harder for a picture these days.  my manipulation skills are not quite up to snuff but i am working on them.  anyway, i'm lookin' good, right???

is it something that will bring you great joy?  why yes it is.  

is it something that will bring about much change?  well, yes it will. 

 is it a new addition to your family?  yes it is (and no, i'm not pregnant).

pumpkin patch.

over the weekend, we visited a local pumpkin patch.  i love pumpkins.  i love pumpkin lattes.  i love pumpkin pie.  i love pumpkin bread.  and my favorite?   pumpkin pancakes.  i had some this morning.  and yesterday.  and i plan to basically eat them everyday throughout the fall.  
i digress. 
i wanted to get a pumpkin or two for decor (much to brenner's disapproval) and to get the mandatory kid-in-pumpkin-patch picture for this time of year.   here is the little guy with his pumpkin.
 cole likes to eat pumpkin too.  

 they had this hay display with scarecrows ad pumpkins on it designed to be the ideal spot to take pictures.  i thought it was cheesy but i gave in to the peer pressure.
 we quickly got down, however, when cole started pushing all of the pumpkins off the hay.  
 can you tell that he is teething???
 so i also had to take pictures of the wierdest pumpkins that i have ever seen. 
 this one was covered in little bumps.
 this one was gray.
 this one had huge warts.  
  i passed over these.  i prefer the pretty ones.

picture of a weekend.

so the weather this past weekend was amazing.  and so of course i took advantage to catch some pictures.  this was the first day it was cool enough to wear a sweater.  i'm so excited about fall and fall clothes!
cole did not like the grass.  can you tell?

 he finally adjusted

 how cute is he?

 can you see his teeth?  i finally got a picture!

11 months.

today cole is 11 months old.  wow.  the first year is closing in on us fast and i am not sure that this mama is ready to let go of it.  as i deal with my issues, let me update you on the fabulous little guy.
he loves to clap
he is standing on his own for about a second or two before falling
he is climbing onto furniture faster than we can pull him off
he loves to throw things on the ground
he loves things that make a lot of noise...his favorite is a wooden spoon 
and my set of pots
some of the foods that he tried this month included garlic, cauliflower, spinach, 
eggplant, cilantro, and black beans
he loves to pull and throw anything out of a basket, bag or container (suitcase, diaper bag, toy basket)
he hates wearing shoes
he is a puff head (a term for a child who can eat his weight in puffs if allowed)
he crawls faster and tries to get away when you come after him
he is sleeping 12 hours a night on most nights
he waves hi and bye (although not 100% of the time)
he likes to pinch (not his most endearing quality)
but he is still the happiest little guy and we think we will keep him a little while longer!
