Poor Baby Sean

Baby Sean seems to have had more than his fair share of accidents recently. I don't know how many of you I told about this, but I got a text from Darrell a few weeks back during an orientation at work. He was letting me know that there was no more emergency, but the ambulance had been to our house to check out Sean. I immediately left the orientation to call home. His older brothers had been running in circles like they always do and he just wanted to join in. He got knocked over and went unconcsious for a few minutes. Needless to say, Darrell was quite worried and called the ambulance. Everything was fine and he even woke up before they got there and they are right across the street from us.
So, today when Darrell called me at work again, I was definitely concerned. Darrell spent the morning trying to replace our kitchen light fixture and Sean happened to get in the way. I am not sure the exact details. I just know that we thought he might need stitches. I hurried home and found that he was fine other than the big cut on his upper lip. It isn't as deep as Darrell had originaly thought. We bandaged him up and he is doing well. I am just hoping that a 3rd big accident doesn't come along any time soon. Poor Baby Sean!

Darrell is calling him baby Hitler!

Phoenix NASCAR style

Our trip to Phoenix for the 2nd to last race of the year was so much fun! We went with Kevin and Mariana and Chas and Carrie. This was Kevin and Mariana's first race and my first race without the boys there. We were able to go on pit road and be up close while they qualified for positions and practiced. Here are some pictures courtesy of Mariana. :)

Here we all are walking under the track to pit road.

(Darrell was a little upset that Kevin was able to meet and take pictures with his driver for his first time at the track. He has been trying to meet Tony for quite some time now.)

Trick or Treating

Halloween is always such a fun time to get together with family and friends. We went to Grandma Karren's for pizza and root beer with ALL the Karren cousins. Then we took most of them trick or treating around Uncle Bryan's old neighborhood in AF. The bigger boys all ran from house to house and Evan was so excited that he was able to keep up with them. Sean stayed with Mom in the stroller. He wasn't quite sure what was happening. After that, we went to Grandma Craddock's house to see our other cousins. Damon decided that he was too tired to do any more trick or treating. I convinced Brady and Evan to go with Sean and cousin Skylee. Here they are at a door waiting patiently to say the magic words. Sean actually enjoyed walking from house to house. He was so cute trying to decide what piece of candy to choose. We had a great time and have buckets full of candy to last us a few months at least. :)

Skylee was dressed as Tinkerbell and her wings lit up!

Here are all the Star Wars boys. Cousin Tyler was Obi Wan Kanobi. Damon was Luke Skywalker, Brady was Anakin Skywalker, Evan was Darth Maul and Sean was Darth Vader.

Baby Darth Vader!
