The Latest

While I was rounding up pajamas these two jokers dumped an entire bottle of shampoo in the bathtub and had quite the bubble bath!

 I had lunch with Owen at his Thanksgiving feast at school last week and this is his “nut” pose.  He loves that song “I’m a Nut” and he keeps doing this every time I try to take his picture!

 Owen is majorly into drawing these days and every week he gets better and better.  These are donkeys.

 Every year Owen’s school has a turkey decorating contest.  This year Owen wanted to make an Optimus Prime turkey and he won a prize.  He was so proud!

 Owen’s going to be in the Beginner Choir Christmas program in a few weeks and is excited to be a sheep.  He wanted me to take his picture when he tried his costume on. 

 Finally, a picture of Aiden!  He just doesn’t demand that I take his picture all the time like Owen does!

 We babysat our cousin Keira over the weekend and the boys cracked me up trying to get her to play with them.

We’re looking forward to lots of family time and lots of good food this week!  I’m sure I’ll have plenty of updates after our fun weekend.

My Pinterest addiction

I’m here to confess that I’m a Pinterest addict with nearly 2000 pins and 17 boards.  I need an intervention!  Here’s my latest Pinterest work. 

I made 50 of these turkeys for the boys Thanksgiving feasts at their schools.  I don’t want to see a piece of candy corn for a long time!  {This was the first one I did so it looks a little sad but they did get better!}

Cayenne rubbed chicken with avocado salsa….it was delicious!

We had a Pinterest food weekend this past weekend and ate some great food!  If you’re an addict like me, you have to pin Paula Deen’s banana pudding recipe.  It is heaven!

A few random updates

Aiden has shown some interest in using the potty so we have started casually working on potty training.  He is so proud to wear Elmo underwear and has actually done pretty well so far.  His fat little legs just make me laugh in this picture!

One day Owen was at the table coloring and I was off putting some clothes away.  When I came back I found that he had discovered where we hid the Halloween candy and had laid out quite the spread for himself!

Halloween 2011

I’m so far behind on blogging so I’m just now posting our Halloween picture.  The boys went as Darth Vader and Yoda this year.  A lot of people thought Aiden was Shrek if he wasn’t standing next to Owen.  They had a great time going to the church Trunk or Treat and walking around our old neighborhood.  This was the first year Aiden went to the door to get candy and he was all about it if someone else would go with him.  By the end of the night he was laying over on our shoulders with his milk and banks (the infamous security blanket).  All in all, a great night!
