So I know it's been awhile since I posted but life has been busy and kicking my butt lately. I have been taking pictures but have been too tired to post. So I thought I would just do a post and post a buch of random pictures and give you a glimpse of what we have been up to!
*For starters, a couple of weeks ago (yep, it's been that long), I took the kids and I (by myself I might add, never again) to get haircuts. Gracie was up first because she is an ol' pro at it. Although she was giving me crap because she thought the lady was going to chop off all her hair and she wanted it long like Rapunzel. I had to do a lot of convincing that she would only cut teeny-tiny bit off.
Bub did really good though. He sat so still and let them take the clippers to him.
Isn't he a handome little boy? I need to gel his hair more often. He looks so big!
I think Gracie was happy with the end result though. She was happy to still have her long hair.
*Gracie started ballet here for the fall. It's been like a year since she did ballet. She has tried tap, hip hop, and jazz and now we are back to ballet. There is no recital for this session. She seems to like it and has her favorite dance teacher, Miss Kathy. So far she is learning steps to "A Whole New World" which is awesome because Jasmine is one of her favorite princesses.
*Chuck was on vacation a couple of weeks ago and he was dying to take the kids to see The Avengers. Of course it wasn't at the cheap show (it is now) but we went as a family to see it and were the only ones in the movie theater. Probably because it was a random Wednesday night. It worked out for the better though because the little ones did sit through the entire movie but asked questions the entire time. My husband has all 3 of my kids obsessed with Avengers. They watch the cartoon on Disney XD all the time. Gracie likes Wolverine (notice the costume she wore to the movie), Presley loves Hawkeye, and Evie is obsesses with Pepper Pots who I guess is Iron Man's girlfriend, played by Gwenth Paltrow in the movie.
Presley wore his Captain America shirt and his Avengers shoes!
*Even though my kids no nothing about 9/11, we rocked the red, white, and blue on that day. Someday they will know. For now I want them to be proud to be an American.
*My birthday is still not for a couple of weeks but Gracie took a trip to Menards and couldn't wait to give me an early birthday present......a guidebook about backyard birds! She was so excited to give it to me and told me that is for when we sit outside and look at the birds. (Which we have NEVER done) but she was so excited so it's sitting on our bookshelf for when we do go look at the birds.
*We also took the kids to see "Finding Nemo." Again, not at the cheap show but you can't beat Disney movies on the big screen even though we own all of them! P.S. Gracie picked out her own red socks to wear with that outift. We are teaching her how to match clothes but it hasn't clicked yet.
*We finally had a playdate with Allie and Emma. Gracie and Allie are really turning into great friends and they had fun dressing up and accessorizing!
*I told you we have been so busy that some nights we simply have just conked out on the couch!
*Today after church, we took an unexpected trip to the pumpkin patch. The kids LOVE playing in all the little houses. It was a gorgeous day to be outside so we took advantage. We'll go back because 1,I forgot my camera and only had my phone and 2, the kids were not dressed for cute fall pictures with all the pumpkins. This place is free so why not?
*The weather has been so fabulous lately that we have been playing outside when we can. We hang out and Grandma and Grandpa's a lot because they have the space to store all of our bikes and things. The little ones have been enjoying driving Gracie's Barbie jeep. Well, Presley likes driving it. Evie just loves riding shotgun and playing with the radio. Would you believe that this car has a real working radio on it?
*Presley has finally caught on to the whole pedaling thing! He has been riding this tricycle all around my mom and dad's house. So what if it's pink and purple....he can pedal!!!
*Evie is SO into playing with dolls and babies. When she is at my mom's house, it's all about Minnie! She loves Minnie!
*We switched up bathtime last week by taking a bath in my whirlpool tub which never sees any action. In fact, most of the time I store clothes in it. Well I cleaned it out and loaded the kids in there. They LOVED it. We even turned on the jets!
*My kids have discovered how to take pictures with my phone. They take them all. the. time. Here is just a couple. Most nights I have to go through and delete them.
*Presley is such a character lately and is so funny to watch. He makes the funniest and cutest facial expressions. Here he is being cool like Daddy.
There you go, a little of what we have been up too lately when we are not at work or school. I will do my best to keep up but don't be surprised if you see another random post like this again.
