I took Cade to Publix yesterday afternoon. As you know, Cade is a BIG baby, and is in fact too big to fit in one of the buggies that has the baby seat on it, but he doesn't really like to sit in a regular cart either. So I decided to go out on a limb and try to strap him into one of those big carts that looks like a race car. He immediately loved it, but I had no idea what a pain that thing would be! First of all, it is the size of a small semi truck and weighs about as much. Second, I don't know if ours was faulty or what, but the front wheels barely touched the groud, making it nearly impossible to steer. I am sure we were a sight to see. I almost knocked over two Thanksgiving displays, and would have to get a running start in order to turn the corner at the end of an aisle. I am suprised that poor Cade was not motion sick by the end. He just grinned and laughed the whole way (while "steering" us around with the steering wheel). People were even stopping us to comment on what a great time he was having. Meanwhile, my back felt like it was broken from the weight of the monster cart. But Cade did not cry the whole trip, and I was able to get all the groceries I needed. Worth it? I think so!

One day our lives might slow down a little, but not anytime soon! We spent the weekend in Kingston with Mom and Dad. On Saturday, Heath and I went to the UT/Vandy game (Go Vols!), and Cade stayed with his Nana. She said they had a great time laughing, talking, singing and playing. Nana requested that I post this picture of his new TV watching mode. Note how his little legs are crossed...
After we got home on Sunday, we decided to do a little Christmas shopping for Cade. Since is isn't big enough to know the difference, we took him with us to Babies R Us. That is where the fun began. Heath strolled Cade around the toy aisles, showing him all the cool light up/music playing baby toys, which he loved. He was especially taken with the TMX Elmo. Elmo would sing, giggle and flip around, and Cade would just laugh like crazy. When we strolled away, he even cried. So I guess that is one more thing to add to the list. Funny how at even just 8 months old, I already want to buy him whatever he wants:). Just one of the joys of being a parent, I guess!

Deep in the Heart of Texas!" What a busy weekend we had! Heath, Cade and I traveled to Austin, Texas (Cade's first plane flight) last Thursday to Scott and Kristy's wedding. Cade did really great on the plane. After arriving, we had plenty of help with Cade from the sweet Higginbotham family (especially Ms. Connie!). I am still not sure if he was ever put down:). We stayed at an awesome resort called Horseshoe Bay on Lake LBJ outside of Austin. The weather was absolutely perfect, and the wedding was beautiful. I have attached some pictures from our fun family trip. Thanks again to the Higginbotham family for all of their hospitality and generosity, and Congrats to the newlyweds!!!

Cade's first Halloween was a huge success and so much fun! We sat outside handing out candy with Rick and Pam (by the way- thanks Pam for bringing over all the yummy food!). Aunt Bevin and Uncle Jud also came by for a little while. Cade loved seeing all of the trick or treaters- and we had a TON in our neighborhood. We got to make a quick stroll over to the Crocketts house. Hopefully next year we can go out trick or treating with the triplets (four toddlers- doesn't that sound like fun?:)
