And ... we have a broken arm :(

Graham was swinging from a branch in the magnolia tree in our front yard and it snapped and sent him falling ... he put his hand back to break his fall and ended up fracturing both his radius and ulna bones at the wrist.  But he has a cool glow in the dark cast to show for it!!  He was in A LOT of pain which was sad to see, but he has really perked up today and is barely missing a beat.  So thankful for his resilient body!!

 This is what we were doing on the front porch ... Graham decided to go climb the tree while waiting for his turn to carve his jack-o-lantern - oops!!

 And of course, it was his class' turn to lead chapel this morning

 He was a trooper!!

So glad we didn't have to miss it

Pumpkin Patch

After church yesterday, we headed down to Lucky Ladd Pumpkin Patch ... it was a BLAST and we stayed til they closed at 5.  I'm so glad we got to fit this in before they close for the season.  There were SO many fun activities and all 3 boys had a great time.  I know I sound like a broken record, but I am so grateful that my boys have each other and get to journey through life's experiences together as brothers.  I think God has placed in my heart this feeling of awe at what they have to help balance out my feelings of the continued daily craziness of 3 active little boys born in less than 2 years.  Oh, how I pray that they will always remain close!!!!

 Tire Climb

 Big Slide

 Corn Cannon

 My boys couldn't pass up a chance to get dirty :)

 What a fun afternoon!!

This was from last week ... but I had to throw it in here :)

Rare Retreat

I got to take just Luke and Carter to Sea Island for 4 days.  I was actually pretty nervous to tell Graham the night before we left that I was taking them and not him, but he took it like a champ and was thrilled when he heard about all of the fun stuff he was going to be doing while staying home with Daddy.  Our weather was dreamy and the dynamics of the trip couldn't have been more perfect ... we got to spend 2 days with just my parents and then 2 days with Wilson's family.  I know I say this after each trip, but this place is just special and I'm so happy that my boys are making such great memories there.  Here's to hoping we can squeeze in another trip for New Years!!!

 Do they look excited or what?!?!

On the Road ...

I spent A LOT of time on the road last week ... 3 days in a row of being on the road (wed, thur, AND fri), a 2 day break, and then we hit the interstate one more time on Monday.  Last Wednesday we drove down to Clanton, AL to bury my grandfather ... Joseph Watts Moore had just celebrated his 97th birthday the week before and peacefully went to be with the Lord!!  Shortly after PaPa had taken his last breath, I got to have this great conversation with Graham and tell him that PaPa was in the throne room of heaven and meeting Jesus face to face for the very first time ... such an incredible picture and such an incredible man.  We had such a sweet service for him and really sweet family time ... and some seriously good southern cooking!!  Then we headed to Memphis to have a really chill weekend and spend time with our grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins ... my boys were in heaven :)  We spent the majority of our time in and out of the hot tub/pool (as we always seem to do at Bet Bet and Snacks' house) - maybe it's a sign that we need to build one at our new house!!  So thankful for time to create memories with family and the love that we all share ... I was pretty pitiful at getting out my camera, but here are a few pics:

 What a legacy he left!!

 I hope this little guy has as many great memories of his grandfather as I do of mine
