Just a quick photo of Halloween!

We had chili dinner at Travis and Tara's house which was delicious! Then it was off to trick or treat in Nana's neighborhood. It was a blast! This is the first Halloween that Jack rememebers and could really participate in. He was so cute running from house to house. After every house he would find me and say, "Mommy! I got more candy!" It was adorable. He would also tell each house Happy Halloween until they said it back to them. He was the hit of the show!

What a fun night! And during the day Joshua had the Chocolate Chip Bowl for football and his team won! 28-8! Go Gators!

A few of Joshua's birthday photos

Joshua turns 8 years old!!!

It is hard to believe he is 8 years old! We have loved every moment of this little mans life over the last eight years. I have no complaint about this gift from God. From his birth to his big 2nd grade year in school he has been a joy to parent and watch grow. God has given him such a sweet heart and amazing spirit. He is so tender and very sensitive to others. He has amazing patience and a giggle that is infectious. He is loved by his brother and sister and his cousins and all his friends.

This has been a big year of growth for Josh too. He is doing great in school, has worked very hard at tackle football this season and still finds time to squeeze in his favorite love of xbox and nintendo ds.

We are so proud of him!

He got to celebrate in style this year. You all know how the Nichols love birthdays!

He had a friends party that was the Olympics theme again and then his party with his cousins, followed by a trip to California Adventure the day of his birthday and then a team cupcake and class chocolate lollipop celebration.

I think turning 8 willbe in his memory for a long time. What a fun celebration and
