We all had a fun Halloween night with our little monkey Carson tonight.

Both Caylie and Christian decided not to dress up in costumes this year. My teens are growing up on me....waaaa! :)

Kinley and her family came joined us for the evening. We decided to go to the Trunk or Treat party at the church that mom, Kinley, and her family attend.

It was a lot of fun!

One of our first stops with Carson, was at a booth where he had a football painted on his cheek.

Mom's group at church had a Veggie Tale's booth set up, and she was dressed up as Madame Blueberry! She and her friends were so cute! They had Veggie Tales music playing, and were doing little dances to the music, and giving out candy.

Carson was proud to have his Mimi dressed up as Madame Blueberry!

Caylie was pretty proud too!

There was a hula hoop booth set up where everyone had some fun!
Christian gave it a shot...

And Corey did too...maybe not so successfully!
Carson got loads of candy, and played lots of fun games!

After Trunk or Treating, we grabbed a quick dinner at Jason's Deli before calling it a night.

It was a fun Halloween!

College Road Trip...Stop #1

We started our week of college visits last Thursday afternoon, by taking Caylie to a prospective student event at Ouachita Baptist University, in Arkadelphia.

OBU is the college that both Corey and I attended (and LOVED!), and I must say that it was VERY surreal seeing our daughter in that environment!!!

As soon as we got her registered, she was swept away with many of her friends that were there for the event as well. We were really happy to see that she felt so comfortable, but we just could not quit talking about how very weird it was to see her in a place that holds so many fun and special memories for us when we were in college!


Is she really old enough for this?!?!

The students ate a nice dinner together, and then attended Tiger Tunes...a fun, crazy campus event that is always a lot of fun. After Tiger Tunes, they went to Refuge...a worship service at a local church, and then got to spend the night in a dorm!

While Caylie spent the evening with her fun activities, Corey and I headed to his parents house with Christian and Carson to spend the night. His parents live about 5 minutes away from campus, so it worked out perfectly!

On Friday morning, Nana and Papaw entertained Christian and Carson, so that Corey and I could go on a tour of the campus. It has been almost 20 years since Corey and I graduated, and the campus has changed soooo much! We could not believe how nice the dorms, and other new buildings are now!

Caylie spent the morning attending a couple of classes, and then after a final assembly, which included both the prospective students, as well as parents, it was time to head home.

It was a fun visit for all of us!

Next stop...John Brown University...
