Pumpkin Patch Visit

We made our annual trip to the pumpkin patch on Friday night. The boy shave been looking forward to it, and we can't wait to carve our pumpkins that they picked out! They picked out some good ones, and we had a great time!

being silly

he picked a good one!

I love these boys of mine!

Catch Up Post

 Here's a photo dump off my phone from the past few weeks!

Bridget and I got season tickets to the Orpheum and our first show was a few weeks ago. I love that we're able to have these dedicated girls nights!

We had a blast trying out a new restaurant and seeing The King and I!

Oh, this boy...A few weeks ago I was letting the older two boys play in the bean bin while B took a nap, because he's the one who usually dumps all the beans out or eats them. S decided to stick beans up his nose, and he was so proud. However, he couldn't get one of them out, and neither could I, no matter what I did. So, I called the pediatrician, and we bought ourselves a trip to the ENT. We went the next day, and after an X-Ray and a nasal endoscopy, there was no bean to be found. I think he ended up swallowing it, which is great! No further interventions needed, and he handled everything like a champ! Never a dull moment with these boys...

selfies to keep this boy occupied during soccer practice last week 

We had waffles on Wednesday with Memaw! We love home made waffles, and I think B ate at least 3 of them. 

F has had multiple orthodontic appointments lately in preparation for having his crossbite corrected. We've had a lot ofo quality time together at the dentist. He's done very well with everything they've had to do and has even helped them out a few times.  

donuts before soccer last weekend

My Monday night scene. I had thrown S and B in the tub to get clean, and I left the door open and attempted to clean up the kitchen after dinner. I came back to a flood-water was everywhere! So, the floors got ripped up in the bathroom, and now we have a very nice concrete industrial look going on. Thankfully, we had already been talking about redoing the floors, so step one (demo) has already been completed!  

He loves picking out his prizes after having his dental work done.

Weekend Fun

We had a great Friday and Saturday! I took B out for a special breakfast treat after taking the boys to school, and then we were silly and tried on Halloween costumes. I love this one on one time with him!

The boys have been wanting to go camping for forever! Unfortunately, it never works out with my weekend work schedule, so Daddy decided to do some tent camping in the backyard. They were over the moon excited!

"helping" set up 

they love the tent!

so excited about camping!

Daddy, Penny, and the older boys camped out, while B and I stayed in the house. Everyone slept great and the boys can't wait to do it again!
Saturday morning-time for soccer again! The boys both played so hard! Fisher had some great blocks as goalie, and got some good kicks in. Sullivan scored his second goal of the season. I'm so glad both of them are loving soccer this year!

Week in Review

Pictures from the last week! We didn't do anything super exciting, but we managed to all survive and make it through another week!

He loves worms! He'll carry them around forever. Poor things...

The boys love to snuggle with Penny in the morning! I think she loves it, too. She'll just lay there and let them lay all over her.

YaYa with Fisher and Asher on Grandparents Day last week.  

Soccer season has started again! The boys were so excited to finally be playing!

F wanted another try at soccer after his disastrous attempt at it two years ago. We agreed, and he is loving it this year! He's hustling and having so much fun!

Sweet Sullivan. He's waited for almost 2 years (very impatiently) until he was old enough to play. Every single week he asks me if it's Saturday yet and time for his game. He is having the time of his life playing!

Dentist visit! Both boys had a great report-no cavities! Sadly, F needs orthodontic work to correct his crossbite, so we'll start those appointments in a couple of weeks. He's not very excited about it and neither am I. 

Wearing his shades and getting his teeth cleaned like a champ. B had a check up, too, but he screamed the whole time, so no pictures. Of course, after he was finished, he was such a charmer ha. 

waiting in car line! It was H day in kindergarten, so F had to wear a hat. He had to bring an H snack for his class, so we picked out Hershey bars!

Saturday fun!

We had a family fun day yesterday! We took the boys to get donuts, and then we went to the park and had a lot of fun walking, playing, and exploring. 

he kept wanting to wear my glasses and make a "videyo"

We had a moment of excitement right before I left for work. The boys were playing while I was reading Baker a book. I heard Fisher start crying and then he ran into the living room. He had been jumping on the bed (which they've been told multiple times not to do, but...) and fell and hit his mouth on the headboard. I looked, and his loose tooth was gone! We haven't been able to find it, and I think he probably swallowed it. Six teeth gone for this six year old! He was really bummed about potentially having swallowed his tooth, but I think it's a life lesson learned about why you should obey your parents when they tell you not to do something...

snaggle tooth boy!

Two Year Checkup and a Haircut

B had his two year checkup on Wednesday. He weighed in at 22 lbs 13 oz (3rd percentile) and is 34.5 inches tall (50th percentile). He's hanging on to the growth chart! He still absolutely hates sitting on the scale. He had a good checkup, despite having to get a shot and being diagnosed with double ear infections. 

so silly
After that, it was time to get a haircut! I love his hair long, but it is so fine and silky that it won't stay out of his eyes, no matter how much I move it out of the way. He did much better this go round with his cut, and only got teary eyed-a vast improvement from the screaming and fit throwing the first time.
so big now!

Last Week in Pictures

F wearing his borrowed gi during karate-his red one hasn't come in yet. He was so excited to finally wear one!

wearing his new outfit that Uncle Jacob and Aunt Brette got him. so so cute!

a beautiful sunset from LeBonheur!

we braved the horrible weather and took the boys to get an ice cream treat Thursday night!

Mom and I had all 7 kiddos on Friday afternoon. The boys played and played, and then they got to watch a show when we needed a break-ha!

I had the touch-I got both girls to sleep and successfully transferred them to the bed!
