The cutest doughboy EVER!
We decided to trick or treat for UNICEF tonight since Abbott won't eat candy, Jack still can't have any milk products and neither me nor Kelly needed to eat all their candy.
We raised $17 dollars for UNICEF and we only went to Uncle Ryan's work (3 people donated) and 3 houses. Not bad for a short trick-or-treat. Jack just wasn't really that into it. Probably by next year, he will want the candy.
Isn't this adorable?
Abbott had a nice dinner of carrots and cereal once we got home.
Miss Janet (AKA Aunt Janet, AKA Grammie), has nice fall decorations up at her house and Jack likes to tear them apart. He brought this flower to Kelly and said, "This is for you, Aunt Kelly." Once again, with Janet and Kelly around, I have become non-existent. Not quite to the extent as when Ayitta's around, but almost. We had a fun night and we're looking forward to a fun rest of the weekend.

I think this one is pretty self explanatory.

Sunrise at Meredith Hill.
We went to Dallas on Monday to visit my great Aunt Treville. She is my grandmother's (mom's mom) sister and will be 96 in November. She is one of the sweetest people I have ever met and I am so happy when we get to go visit her. She gave Jack a little stuffed horse and he named it Dallas Horse. Appropriate, I think.
It's not a trip to Texas without seeing the cows and donkeys. Jack wanted to go see them every day but he didn't want to get much closer than this.
One thing he likes to do with Poppa is help get the mail. He is taking notes from the Voter's Guide of the US News and World report magazine as he is still undecided on who to vote for. He told me today, he'd decided on Obama.
Here you can see his boots better. He loves his boots, mostly because Ayitta gave them to him and they have John Deere on them.
Here's my dad, Wannie & Poppa standing on one of the square's corner's. Poppa said that when the soldiers got back from WWI, they planted pecan trees on the square for everyone who served from Henderson county. This corner has the tree that was planted for my great-grandfather (Popo), Poppa's dad. We weren't sure if this is his actual tree or if it's somewhere else on this corner.

And here's after. This cut is more "me" and it is super easy to fix. I am really glad it's all gone and I hope some child will be able to use it. :)

On another note, most of you know Jack had a milk allergy when he was about 5 months old and he was on a soy formula. When we switched him to milk, he drank soy milk. Here lately, with different foods, his chin has broken out with red, puffy patches so we're taking him to an allergist. I'm not sure what they'll do yet, but I'm guessing the best way to figure out what's wrong is to do the allergy test. The appointment is not until after we get back from Athens, but I'm asking y'all to keep him in your prayers that he doesn't have a major food allergy. I don't really think it is, but I don't want to take any chances either, since I know food allergies can be bad.
We are really looking forward to our trip to Texas. Every night as I'm patting his back, Jack says he's going to see Wannie, Poppa, Donkeys and Cows. He's excited. I hope he does well in the car. It will be the first long drive since our trip to the beach in June. It was 8 hours, this one is 5 hours longer. I'll try to post pictures while we're gone, but I might just make the most of my time there and wait til we get home. Have a good week!

Jack's new bed with his tractor blanket made by Wannie and his pillow case made by Mama (AKA Dixie). His name is in John Deere material, what else?

Chick and Lightning McQueen also enjoyed the game. Chick is Lauren's and Lightning McQueen is Jack's. Jack wanted to play with Chick so Lauren was nice enough to let him and Jack let her play with McQueen. It was sad though, when Lauren wanted to play with chick. Jack was not happy. Fortunately, she did not care which car she played with and shared nicely.
