Ethan has this project due on the 3 types of matter. Solid, Liquid, Gas. He had to make 3 categories, define what each type of matter was, and then DRAW 10 pics of each type of matter. That is 30 hand drawn pics people!!! It is finally DONE!! Thank goodness! I will admit to drawing 1 of his pics. But honestly only 1. He really did draw all the rest! Any way, I'm proud of all the work he did! He is pretty proud too!

Simple things

I really don't have anything monumental to post about. Just the in's and outs of our regular every day life. I had some funny pics to post, so here are some random (again) pictures of our latest happenings. The first couple I'm posting because Darren is out of town and can't see that I'm posting these. He would be really embarrassed if he knew I was posting these, but I can't resist! My hubby along with Ethan and Ashton are as "boy-ish" as you can get. Literally any chance they get, take off their clothes and wrestle like cave-men. Well to add to the mix this particular day, they got out the Halloween masks and were acting silly. I grabbed the camera and the first thing Darren said was, "you better not post these!" I assured him I wouldn't, but come on they are funny!

This is where Ethan fell asleep one night. And he would kill me if he knew I posted this as well! I guess I'm in a rhythm tonight of posting things I shouldn't! he he he!!!! :)

Enjoying the last of this season's nectarines and peaches. We're sooooo sad they will be gone soon. We have loved them so much! Yummy juicy-ness! ;)

Can you tell my family loves Halloween and all it's props?

My favorite baby in the whole world. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this baby so much!

Did I mention how much I LOVE him? Just in case... I Love Him!!!! ♥

That's all for now folks! I'll sure be glad when the hubby returns! Every time he leaves something retarded ALWAYS happens. I kid you not! Every single time!!! This time, Lily flushed a wash cloth down our toilet yesterday. Long story short, and all my towels and blankets later, the plumber finally came 8 hours later, and my home is no longer a swimming pool. ugh! That's all I want to say about that for now! :)

First Day of School!

School has finally come once again. The boys were excited and they did really well. Ashton was a trooper. He couldn't wait to get out the door and onto the bus! The house was very quiet after they left. But it's always good to get back into the swing of things. Here are some shots of the boys on their first day!


Ashton (Does he look excited?)

Waiting at the bus stop with the neighborhood friends.

The bus lady was so cool! She saw that I had a camera in my hand and she said come in here and take a picture of them on the bus! So cute! I know I won't be able to do that for long, because it won't "be cool", so I'm glad I got these pics to remember! ;)

Jacob is how old???

5 months!!!! Where does time go??? Here a few pics of my fast growing ball of joy baby!!! We love him sooooooo much!!!!

Jacob and Lily. (His second mother) :)

My neighbor has a daughter that is exactly one week younger than Jacob. They are cute together!

I laughed so hard at the picture. I was trying hard to get a cute picture with Jacob and Yoda. But Jacob was not in the mood. He was so cranky. And this picture looks like Jacob is yelling at yoda! "GET OFF MY BLANKET!!" So funny!
