this little guy...

This little guy thinks he can sit at the big table instead of his high chair!
Big brother does it, so why can't he??
So this morning he got to...he did pretty well!

He thinks he did a pretty good job too!
Pancakes are easy...the messy stuff he has to sit in his highchair!

trucks, trucks and more trucks!

Can you tell we're ALL boy around here??

There's no princess/girly things in this household!
It's ALL trucks, trucks and more trucks!
It seemed like every present the boys got had something to do with trucks!
This isn't even half of them...I found a lot more later all around the house!

Even though we got a lot of trucks...I wouldn't have it any other way!

I love my boys to pieces and I LOVE watching play with all the trucks!

They have such an imagination!

So I've been busy making these...

They are coasters. We made them last year with our family pictures on them and gave them to our family.

This year I made them with scrapbooking paper and sticker letters.

I gave them to Eli's preschool teachers, my aides, etc.

They were perfect!

I still have more to make and have yet to make any for myself!

Last year we started an annual cookie decorating night at our school.
All 3 of us Kindergarten teachers make all the cookies and everyone else brings things to decorate them! It's a fun time for us to get together with our staff and our kids! We take pictures and make a scrapbook of our night. It was fun to see how much they had grown since last year.
Well...we were eating dinner before we went and Eli got sick. So, we didn't get to go. Eli and I were bummed! So we decorated some of the cookies a little later. Eli wasn't up for it too much. He didn't even ask to eat one! We tried to make it fun! Oh well, there's always next year!

I received one of the best gifts ever this year!
My aide in my classroom made this for me!

Yes...made it!
She hand painted EVERY little piece on here!


She said she thought it was something fun for me and the boys to do!

She was absolutely right!

We've had so much fun.
By the time we are done, we will have the whole nativity scene.

Hello Woody!

So, I bought these pajamas for Eli.
They are Toy Story; Woody and Buzz Lightyear!
I didn't realize he would want to wear them to play in!
This was the day he decided to be Woody!
I kept hearing, "There's a snake in my boot!"
I love this kid!

Eli's preschool put on a Fall program.
They'll have a Christmas one next year!
I took time off work to come and watch it, then I took him to lunch.
Here he is; happy, excited to start the program.

This would be where he started wining, crying for me. Seriously? I have such a Mama's boy on my hands!

He moved his square over by me and then he participated. I had to give my camera to someone across from me so I could get some pictures of him! All I could see was the back of his head!

Cute turkey cookies afterwards!

2 of Eli's friends from preschool; Brody and Jace!
His "Thankful Turkey" says; toys, my mama, my daddy, my baby brother, my friends.

Sweet boy! We are thankful for you too!

We don't have a big family.
My boys only have 1 cousin.
So...they LOVE him to pieces!

Kisses and lovin for Josiah!

Love it!

I'm pretty sure he loves them too!

You should have seen his face when they were lovin on him!

(This was a close as Daddy would get to you!)

Good thing it was bath night!

We had Spiderman and Monkey at our house this year!
First...both Grandparent's houses!
I think we should make this an annual thing! 8 kids...all 4 and under!

Then back to the house for pumpkin bars and hot chocolate! Yummm!
And...a bowl full of candy!

It was fun to get together with our friends and the kids! It's fun to see how much they have changed since last year!

Happy Halloween!

As you can see...I haven't been up for much blogging!
Sorry to those of you who keep checking!
Life is busy.
I have lots of pictures, that I will hopefully post soon.
Just not motivated to do it now!
More motivated to spend time with my family!
I know not many people read this or care, but to my family that does...sorry! :)
Have a Happy Halloween!

"O" for Ollie!

Tomorrow is "Show and Tell" day at preschool!
We have searched our house high and low for something that starts with "O."
We've found nothing!
Then we saw a picture of Ollie!
Ollie is one of Eli's friends and his name starts with "O!"
So this is the pictures Eli is taking to school tomorrow!
It's kind of old, but it was the best one I had of them!
Thanks Ollie!!!

This is so sweet!
I love that my boys love to read and that Aaron reads with them!
Of course, they are usually books about trucks!

This one makes me smile. I didn't get a great picture, but you can see Cole looking at Aaron smiling!
And...pointing! Cole LOVES books just as much as Eli does!

I guess the teacher in my loves that they love books! They're so fun to read with too!

Cole was not such a fan of the cake!
We did these same pictures of Eli...he had it ALL over himself!
He LOVED it!
Cole...not so much!
We had to force him into it...then he threw up!
Yeah, it was nice! Meg was gracious enough to not take pictures of that part!
They are 2 very different boys, but we love them both with all our hearts!
We did get a few smiles out of him!
Most were before he forced him touching the cake!
