Surprise Day

John got me back for a really cool/really silly surprise day (Suzie and ) I planned a few years back! Here is a little peek at how it went!

Surprise number 1:
Toffee Nut Lattee from Starbucks! (China's Christmas flavor..mmmmm!)

Surprise number 2:

Going to the see the Christmas displays at Golden Eagle! (Foo foo!) Check out the bunnies?

Surprise number 3:
Picture with Carter in FRONT of the Christmas display at Golden Eagle.

Surprise number 4:
Believe it or not...was going into Golden Eagle! (There is lots of sarcasm in this post.)
Surprise number 5:
You guessed it...buying something from Golden Eagle! This is Louie, Prada, Gucci!!
Surprise number 6:
Home for nap...instead of buying something from Golden Eagle!
Surprise number 7:
Going for a foot massage! Thank you!
Surprise number 8:
Out to eat for lunch!

Surprise day is super fun! It is kind of a joke and even though we kind of did what we do every Saturday, the suspense kills me!!! I love it! Ha ha! Also, surprise day is kind of made up as you go along and you try to give as many "surprises" as you can!

And I leave you with Little C all decked out and his final hand turkey painting!

10 month stats

I didn't have time for this yesterday and not much has changed since last month but for the sake of looking back later:
  • He is still standing and cruising all over the place, but no walking.
  • 7 teeth, 4 on bottom, 3 on top (fourth on top coming in now, ouch!)
  • Understands quite a bit! Responds by looking, pointing or going toward objects when asked "where is your......?", "Want to take a bath?", "Are you tired? Ready for bed?", "Where is Lucy, Mom, Dad?", "Clap, clap, clap!" "Dance, dance, dance"
  • Still loving to eat! Still nursing!
  • Still 2 naps!
  • Still babbles! That boy loves to talk!
  • Still just as silly and fun as he can be!!!
  • Still LOVES bath time. He will stand on the side of the tub pointing and yelling the whole time the water is running! Major play time once he is in there!
Love him so much!

10 Months Old!

Here he is again! This blog has turned into a little tribute to Carter! Ha ha! But hey, he is the biggest thing in our lives!!!

Another birthday celebrated and now only two short months from being a 1-year-old! :(

Here is the monthly photo shoot first in his normal clothes then degraded into the usual!

This is one of the two strange faces he is doing feeling his teeth with his lips.


He looks huge! AND his hairline is very noticeable in these pictures! Ha ha!

Cracking himself up! He thinks he is sooo funny! (I think so too!)

And he's done!

Fall in China

Fall in China isn't too different than Fall in Houston. It has been cool for a while, but like Houston, the leaves only change to shades of brown. When we lived in Norway we got to appreciate what people mean when they say red and yellow leaves! They really turn RED and YELLOW! So pretty!

Here is little Carter-man in the China Leaves! We are loving this fall weather!!!

We don't EAT the leaves. Poor little guy...he'll try anything.

Found a big one!

Love this one...too bad he isn't looking!

**For a fun little activity to do with leaves check out our teaching blog: A Teacher at Heart!

Happy Fall!
The McCoy's!
