Halloween 2009!

Here's a QUICK recap of our Halloween! The first couple of pictures were taken Halloween night at our house. We always have everyone over to trick-or-treat, eat, eat and eat. Our neighborhood is a crazy place on Halloween. You can barely make your way through. We had our last trick-or-treater at 10:15! Hudson had a lot of fun in his chicken costume. Talk about cute! He'd already sweated his way out of it in the picture below. Preston decided not to dress up this year. I mean, he is 11 and in the 6th grade. (that's what he said, by the way) So, he went from wearing a costume one year to inviting a "girlfriend" over the next. That's Savanna in the picture with him. She's a real sweet girl. Hard to believe my baby is growing up. Not so sure I like this stage in the process....but, I guess it's just part of it.
Anyway, I hope everyone had a fun Halloween. Hopefully this is the first step to getting back on the blogging train. =)

The pictures below were taken at the Fall Festival at work. Several people said if there had been a costume contest, my little chicken would have won hands down. (I have to agree!) =)

(Hudson and Peyton, my friend Penny's son. Is he cute or what?)

Bye bye Halloween....see you again next year!
I bet my Mom's already thinking about my costume!

I know...

Just a quick note to say I KNOW I HAVEN'T BLOGGED IN AN EXTRA LONG TIME. And I feel terrible about it. The Campbell house is just a busy busy place these days. I'm busy. Alan is busy. Preston is busy. Hudson is beyond busy. So, don't give up on me just yet. I promise to get back in the swing of things real soon. My camera is overflowing with lots of cute pictures.
Hope everyone is doing well. =)

It's official!

The Galleria Riverside has a new vendor and M & Co. is open for business! I still can't believe it.
Those of you that know me well know this is something I've wanted to do for a loooooong time, so I'm pretty excited about it. It should be a piece of cake with two children and a full time job, right? We'll see. =)
Anyway, I just wanted to share the good news. And, I want to say thank you to Alan for supporting me in this crazy adventure. He's the best assistant =) a girl could ask for. Thanks to Preston and Hudson for letting their Mama work on all this stuff EVERY weekend since this crazy idea became a reality (and still loving me in the process). Thanks to Mimi for watching the little man every day (and even on her day off today!) so I could get this little place up and running. Thanks to Janet for coming today to help me tag, price and stage (I'd still be there if she hadn't shown up). Thanks to Uncle Jeffrey for painting the booth....I called one day and it was done the next! Thanks to Tasha for designing my super cute logo! And, a GREAT BIG, SUPER HUGE THANKS to Papa for being the handiest man I know. That dude could win a medal for his skills with a drill, some screws and an excessive amount of stuff to hang! Thanks so much to each of you.
Well, here's a little peek at M & Co. Let me know what you think....

One more thing before I go. Say a little prayer for my biggest boy tonight. He has a small case of U.K.S. (Uncle Keith Syndrome). He has a severely injured (possibly broken) pinkie injury he got at the tournament today after getting nailed in the hand during an at bat in the championship game. It looks bad, but I know it feels even worse. And of course, it's his left hand which means typing, baseball and golf just became a little bit harder. So, please keep the sweet boy in your thoughts and prayers and I'll keep you posted on the diagnosis.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

A birthday wish and an apology....

Friday was our niece, Chandler's birthday. Unfortunately, I've been so wrapped up with a million other things (baby, 11 year old, middle school, work, booth, regular old day to day stuff, husband....the list goes on and on....) that I totally let Chandler's birthday slip by without posting anything on the blog. I can honestly say this is not a mistake I make very often and I feel terrible about it.
So, Chandler, please accept this as my apology and very happy belated birthday wish from the 4 of us! I hope you know we love ya whether I said it on the blog Friday or not!

Check this out!

Mom and Hudson are on another blog! Remember sevencupcakes, the little ETSY shop where I purchased one of Hudson's birthday onesies? I decided to send Allie, the shop owner (who has 4 boys herself, the youngest is named Hudson!), a link to our blog so she could see how adorable he looked. Well, she thought he was "the most cutest thing ever", so she put us on her blog! Check it out when you have a minute!

Happy Birthday Sweet Boy!

Hudson is 1! Can you believe it? This cute thing is growing so fast and he just shouldn't be a year old already! We celebrated his first year last night and we had the BEST best time at his birthday party! I think the little man had more fun than anybody! He walked around, played and visited with everyone all night! And, as you can see, he ate LOTS of birthday cake (enough to need a bath and a wardrobe change)! He got so many nice, clothes, pajamas, books, movies, trucks, savings bonds, monogrammed tableware, things for the name it.....he got it! Thanks so much everyone! He even enjoyed his first hot dog and some baked beans! We've got a growing boy on our hands with an even quicker growing appetite!

By the way, the cute little onesies that Hudson is wearing came from two little shops on ETSY. The one that matched his cake is from makmay designs and the one with the party hat is from seven cupcakes. I HIGHLY recommend either of these shops if you need a really cute, custom outfit for a special little boy or girl! And, they were super nice to work with. I will definitely order from these sweet ladies again! And, I can't go with saying that Columbus Corner Bakery rocks! Is that not the cutest cake ever?!?! I squealed out loud when I saw them. Those girls are cake baking rock stars!

I hope y'all enjoy the pictures from little man's party. It's quite a few, but it's only about 1/3 of the 183 that we took! What can I say? I'm a picture fool. =)

P.S. Just so y'all don't think I'm totally crazy, the little monkey is wearing the first onesie I ordered for Hudson that was too small! I hated to let it go to waste, so we dressed our little friend for the party.

Little buddy, I can't wait for your next party. I'm ALREADY thinking about it! We love you bunches!
