On Friday, we had a fun time eating pizza and carving pumpkins! The kids enjoyed getting all the seeds out and figuring out how they wanted their face to look like on the pumpkins! The adults enjoyed the cutting part. We all had a great time and they came out really cute. We ended the night with Emily's beautifully designed cookie cake!! Yummy!!

Soccer Season 2 COMPLETE!

It's hard to believe that season number two is already done. Jalen was super-excited to have another trophy. It is well-earned. I'm so proud of him. He loves getting out there and running around. He passed out really fast tonight!! So proud of him!

It's amazing to see how fast they grow up. She's already walking everywhere, talking up a storm, and being a ham! Where does time go?!


Jalen never failed to make me laugh -- ever!!

"Oh me gosh, Mommy! Come here!" "No, Jalen, I don't want to look at your poop!" "Mommy, seriously, oh me gosh, come here!" I walk there. "Look, Mommy, I just think I ate too many cherries from Skinny Dips. My poop is red. Oh me gosh, Mommy. It's hilarious!"

I'm cleaning the shower with this new stuff that you spray on and it makes it easier to wipe grime off. "Mommy, what's that? Is that Oxi Clean?" "Why, yes Jalen, it is!" -- Oh the things TV teaches our kids!!

"Mommy, I want that." "Jalen that's for girls (it's a Barbie hair straightener). Daddy would get mad." "But, Mommy, you just buy it and give it to me and we won't tell Daddy." "Why do you want it?" "I wanted to give it to you as a present, you'd love it, but Daddy wouldn't let me buy it." -- He's so freakin' sweet!!

Sunday's at Grandpa's!

Jam Session 101

Jalen loves to sing and dance, especially his ABCs and the sounds the letters make, but the other night he enjoyed rocking out to some music. He has so much energy and he never fails to make me laugh!

Not My Child Monday!

Mckmama- Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

While we were buying something from a lady we found on Craig's List, my son did not get out of the car, find a bush in the Target parking lot, and pee on it, as we are making change and getting the item! Nope, not my son!

Nope, my child did not tell me that he wants to drive this past week. Nope, he's not only 5. And he did not tell me exactly what kind of car he wants! Nope, not my child! :)
