Fall Festival at the Dallas Arboretum

This past weekend we went to the Dallas Arboretum. My mom was in town and she wanted to see Hudson in his Halloween costume, so we thought we would bring it with us and get some pictures of him in the pumpkins. It was an absolutely beautiful weekend - one of those weekends where you can't help but thank God for all that He has created- great friends, great family, beautiful weather and so much more.

Baby Dedication

On Saturday we had Hudson's baby dedication. We had a great time. Josh (one of our pastors) talked from Deut. 6 about how we are to be the ones that teach our children about the Lord. It is a long and always changing task, one that can bring much frustration and incredible amounts of joy. This is a task that scares me to death, but I am comforted by the fact that 1. that the Holy Spirit lives within me and that 2. We are surrounded by people that will challenge and encourage us through this process. Thanks to all that are on this journey with us, we love you and appreciate you.

Here are a few pictures from the day

Last Week

Last week was a fantastic week. For me (Erin), the week was filled with many "accomplishments." On Thursday we went and saw "The Lion King". If you ever have a chance to see it, the show is a must see. This was something that I have wanted to do since I first heard of it coming out, so you can imagine how excited I was. I have to admit that I felt like a kid in a candy store, the night was unbelievable.

And then on Saturday I ran a 15k race around White Rock Lake. I am running a 1/2 marathon on Nov. 4th so I am running out of training time. The race went great. This was the first time I have ever run a race at this distance.

Hudson is walking more and more each day. He loves to laugh when other people are laughing. Right now some of his great skills include:
~ clapping and dancing on cue
~climbing (on anything)
~crawling at lightening speed
~talking in his own language - I wish I could understand him, I am fascinated by his thought processes

Well, I guess that is about it for now. i will post some new pictures soon.
