Sweet Memories

Timmy says, “Mom its great having a pet baby.” 😂😂 poor Lydia

Whenever my kids lose an eyelash they want to make a wish. I don’t know where that cane from. But today Gacies wish was for Timmy to get a rocket ship to take her to the moon.

Grace says her one wish to Santa is that all her toys cone to life. Specifically she would like a talking flower. Might be a sad Christmas 😂

Timmy got shots today at the doctor. He screamed bloody murder, then said oh thats it thats not too bad and then thanked the nurse. 

So at the dr office today timmy brought his lizard book and says to the kids do you guys want to see a lizard that is hard to catch? But you know who can catch any lizard? My friend uncle tom.

Grace is “fishing” off the side of the bed with Tims belt and yelling yeehaw.

Lydia is 3 months

My sweet little girl is such a ray of sunshine. Honestly just huge smiles and man burps all day!

She’s starting to babble and drool. She chews on her fingers like they’re made of candy. She is able to grasp toys and hold up her head. She’s wearing 6 month clothing, sometimes 9 months in pjs. Lol. Chunky? Yes. Definitly! And we wouldn’t have it any other way. She is a butterball.

Mommy’s Ballerina

There is something so very special about buying your little girl her first pair of ballet slippers. All my mana dreams came true seeing my Sweet Gracie get ready for her first ever dance class.

Typically Grace will cling to my leg if Timmy isnt there to introduce her to new things or even new friends. Shes very shy without her big brother. Not at dance. You can tell she feels very comfortable. I really feel like dance might be her thing. She’s very attentive to her teachers instruction and she absolutely loves her dance girlfriends. Its really been good for her to have this special time that is all about her.

I’m so proud to watch her and I can not wait for the Christmas pageant. 

Love & War

These two love each other so completely but man they fight just as hard. This seriously just happened and I cant help but laugh like a crazy person…

Timmy starts crying. 10 seconds later Grace is crying even louder. They run in to tell on each other. Grace pinched Timmy and Timmy hit Grace.

Why you ask…

Well they were pretending the couch was a boat and Timmy stole Grace’s motor. So I suggested Timmy return the pretend motor. Unfortunately I was informed that the motor in question sunk to the bottom of the sea. These kids are nuts but oh so cute!

Gobble Gobble

It’s November 2nd and yes we jumped right into Thanksgiving crafts with our Mom’s Ministry.

I am so thankful for these mama’s. I love that we all want to bring our kids closer to Jesus and that we can do it together.

Today we made a cute turkey craft that Aunt Jessica picked up from Michaels. You gotta love sticker foam crafts thatdon’t  need any extra supplies. And it is especially nice when our children can do the craft all by themselves. It makes them so proud.

Then we made turkey pancakes for our lunch. They came out so cute. We used a big pancake and with honey glued on the baby pancake for our turkeys head. We used chocolate chips for eyes, fruit roll up as the gobbler {if thats the word} and a candy corn beak. Pretzels were our feet and fruit for our feathers. They kids really worked hard on these and they really enjoyed pouring extra honey on before gobbling it all up.

A Lesson in Horses

Our sweet niece loves horses and lucky for her my brother-in-law bought her two. Timmy and Grace are old enough now to learn about caring for a horse so I asked Halle if she wouldn’t mind giving them a lesson in horses.

My kids were over the moon excited. They wanted to help with everything. Grace took a good 20 minutes to warm up to the idea. I think she was surprised by how big horses really are up close.

First she had them brush Ripley and give her some treats.

Then they gave her some spritz before saddling her up and taking her for a ride.  

Then they gave Ripely gatorade which was news to me. Apparently is good for their hydration. Them she got a nice bath and some love.

Halle is so sweet with the kids. Shes so patient and gentle. I think we are going to make this a regular thing.

Sweet Memories

I tell Grace that all her candy is gone and she says well Mommy candy does not walk so who ate it you or Daddy? There’s no fooling her.

Timmy always wants to hold Lydia by himself. Hes such a sweet brother. Always kissing her and his favorite thing is to burp her. He thinks its so cool.

Timmy is spelling!!!! It is anazing. Just happened overnight it feels like. Came to me and said this is how you spell RAT and starts sounding it out and boom hes a speller. Its all he wants to do now.

Grace is so funny. Theres just no arguing with her about who is smarter. She is and thats the end of the story. We know spell Grace like this BTG. She puts it on everything. If you spell her name correctly she cries.

Everytime Lydia cries, Timmy says, “Mom what is she trying to say I know you speak baby.”

Visiting Great Grandma. They are so sweet with her. 

Police Station Field Trip

We belong to the most amazing homeschool group. Every week is another awesome field trip. Almost all are free or close to it. 

This week was the police station and Timmy was so excited. We made thank you cards to hand out.

They showed the kids a movie About becoming a police officer and then took them thru the station and play inside a cop car.

Halloween Festivities 2016

My kids have been worn many costumes this Halloween mostly because well its 3 days before Halloween and their real costumes are still not finished. So every party they go to I let them choose from the dress up trunk.

Our friend Jen had the cutest Halloween party for the kids with so much themed food, a pinata and my favorite Poison drinks for the parents. Cheers!

Then we celebrated with our church play group. We did a pumpkin prayer carving, a batty for Jesus picture frame, creepy mystery boxes and yummy spider snacks. Timmy even made a homemade pinata.

Then we went and visited the nursing home and gave the residents a halloween parade and handed out pumpkins.

On Friday we had a halloween pajama party with Max abd Brynn. The kids had the best time. Of course we had some themed activities because we can’t help ourselves but these kids would be just as happy if we left them to play outside all day. They were black from head to toe when they came in the house. 

Us moms enjoyed some vino and some pumpkin bacon pasta. 

The kids had spider pb&js, they played pin the eye on the monster and they enjoyed some yummy candied popcorn with their spooky movie.
