A New Maylett!!!

Jonah Dickie Maylett was born on Dec. 2, 2007. He weighed 6 lbs. 7 oz. He looks quite a bit like Carson did when he was a baby, which is fine because Carson is adorable. The kids smother him with love (sometimes smother turns to suffocate when London gets involved).

There were a few tense moments, but everything turned out just fine in the end. Candace is recovering well and is once again learning what it is like to be a night person.

I'm just excited that there is now another boy on Team Maylett! Carson often points out that we have a bigger team than the girls. Funny thing though... Jonzie doesn't do a whole lot. He basically eats and sleeps. Sometimes he flails his arms around with no real purpose. Carson says "that's because there are all these pipes in his brain and they just aren't connected yet."

-Yeah. Sometimes my pipes don't connect so well either.

The kids had so much fun at their Halloween play date. All of the girls were princesses and demanded to be treated as such. We are so blessed to live in a neighborhood where our kids have so many good friends to play with. We love you guys!

On Halloween night we all went Trick-or treating thanks to mom and dad who handed the candy out. Because of Brett's great new job this is the first year he was able to Trick -or - Treat so the kids were so excited. He dressed up in a scary costume.
Zak and Cattibrie came with us...which was great fun. Zak yelled "I don't want your candy" as soon as someone would open their door. That was fun. Zak didn't accept any candy but was confused that we wouldn't let him take 1/2 of Carson's. That kid is hilarious. Cattibrie and London were darling. They were so excited to yell trick-or-treat. It was a fun night.
