Our evening... Happy Reformation Day!

Our evening started when we took cupcakes to Curtis' office. The kids had so much fun and were super cute passing out cupcakes.

Micah, the brave knight, was kind enough to sample the icing before we handed the treats out. Way to take one for the team, Sir Micah!

Our little princess and her favorite knight!
Me and my sweet princess.
The wild, candy eating dragon! Even though he didn't roar while we were at Curtis' office, he had lots of fun roaring at the Reformation Day Party. He even blew "fire" at Andrew!
Daddy holding the little dragon before he went on another candy binge! On a non cady related side note, Benjamin won the costume contest! Good call judges!!!
Benjamin was quick to find out where all the candy was.

And here he is pointing to his lollipop. He even dug through the trash and picked up lollipops off the floor. Soooo gross!

The brave and mighty knight, who spent most of his evening running around, and eating chips.

The mighty knight takes a moment to pose for a picture with one of his adoring fans.

Our little princess had a fun evening "fishing" for jewels (jewelry), spending time with her friend, the Little Mermaid (Alexis) and jumping in the jump house.

We had a great evening! Despite good naps and lots of candy, the kids all went down fairly easily. There was a little incident with the princess and some hot pink nail polish, but all's well that ends well!

A Junk Food Day!

Even though it's not quite 11:00, it's lunch time here! And look what the kids are eating.... POPCORN!!!
We started out the morning with chocolate chip jack-o-lantern pancakes, and pancakes with pumpkin sprinkles.
For lunch, each kid had a little fruit, but they are now enjoying the bucket of popcorn (we're thinking of you, Mr. Jack and Parker!).
Once the boys go down for their naps, Elizabeth and I will be making cupcakes to take to Daddy's work.
This evening, dinner will consist of candy, chips, and if we're lucky, hot dogs.
What a great eating day!!

My new name

Just a little bit ago, I popped every balloon in this house. The kids had been fighting over them (even though there were about 7) and I decided to make my life that much easier. As excepted, the big kids cried, and cried. Benjamin, looked at them like they were crazy, and tried to blow the balloon up again. When he found out he couldn't he too started crying.

Ignoring them, I went into the kitchen to try to get some work done. Elizabeth came up to me and asked, "So, are you a take-away-mommy now? Cause that's what you did. You took away our balloons!"

Me and Micah

This picture was taken last night by Heather. Doesn't Micah look happy to be my little boy?

Happy birthday Knox

In celebration of Knox's birth, several of us joined and released balloons. We miss you Knox!
Jon, Rachel, Anne Michal, Lizzy, Emma, Jack and Creed, you have been in our thoughts and prayers!
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13
You can see more pictures here.

Oh, so LAZY!

I just finished serving my kids lunch. On the kitchen floor! It all started with a trip to the gym (thanks Beth!). My legs were so tried, and Benjamin just kept wanting to eat, and eat, and eat, that I just sat on the floor in front of the fridge rather than going back and forth. Next thing I knew, I had all three kids on the floor with me, and I was making turkey and ham rolls to give them. Ad some string cheese and voila! Lunch!

At least they ate!

I'm so lazy!

The princess, the knight, and the dragon

Here is a small sampling of the pictures that our friends, the Ackermans, took today of our kids in their Halloween costumes. They look adorable (thanks Grandma!), and we had lots of fun taking the pictures. I'm going to try to get more pictures uploaded to my Facebook page tomorrow. Charles and Laura took almost 300!!

Perfectly Pumpkin

That's what I'm calling the new look.

What do you think? Perfectly pumpkin, or not?

The day after

I told you we got a little sun. Watching me put on make up this morning, trying to cover up some of the red, was quite amusing. It really didn't work that well! Even my lips are sun burned! Last night at 11pm, Curtis asked if I was wearing lip stick.
Mr. Raccoon. Curtis is so red, I think he glows in the dark.
Lesson learned, we will wear sun screen at the next game we go to!

The end of a great day!

Despite the score at the end of the game, we had a great time! As you can see in the above picture, we all got a little sun, especially on our left side.

Happy 30th birthday Curtis! I love you so much. I hope that this weekend gave you just a glimps at how specail you are to me, and to so many of our friends!

Curtis' 30th Party

Tonight we celebrated Curtis' 30th birthday with an Aggie tailgating party. We had lots of food, lots of fun, and tons of people! It was a really time, with a lot of wonderful people. Thanks to everyone who came, and helped celebrate Curtis' 30th birthday! The set up!
All the Aggies.... or at least the ones who dressed in Aggie attire.

Curtis and his roommate from college Daniel. Daniel and his family came in and surprised Curtis before the party.
