Fall Festivities

Fall has come upon us, which means it is Kevin's favorite time of year.....

Football Season

We finally made it to a Buckeye game,
 and are looking forward to the rest of the season. 

Annalise also got to go to a game with daddy....she mostly was concerned about
 "Brutus Buckeye" and the "Marching Vand" 
(as she calls them)

As for the rest of our fall festivities....

Pumpkin Picking

Circleville Pumpkin Show....

This Festival has been around for years, and they have pumpkin everything. 
Pumpkin chili, pumpkin pizza, pumpkin soda, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin brownies, pumpkin pie, pumpkin donuts......I think you get the idea!

Here are the girls waiting for their pumpkin donuts......mmmmmm

Jumping in the leaves

Carving Pumpkins

Getting ready for 
Trick or Treating
 my families tradition,
eating hot soup out of a pumpkin....

We followed the yellow brick road all night to find our candy...

And yes....I know I look super scary,
but Kev makes a handsome scarecrow.

None of the kids would talk to me all night...
and it took Annalise a couple of hours to warm up to me, 
so the next night for our ward Halloween Party 
I made the makeup a little more kid friendly.

But my kids looked super cute....

Happy Halloween!!

Thirty years of excitement.....

Kevins birthday is today! Happy Birthday baby! He is officially out of his twenties....and I think I am feeling the age more than he is.....because after today I am exhausted.

First I want to say thank you to everyone who emailed me with thoughts for Kevin's book. It turned out great....but I got really rushed at the end so the beginning was looking all cute, and then the end was pretty ghetto with markers and tape. But the message was the same, so thank you for all of the love!

 Looking nice..

Cute little things to back the pictures...
 to....ghetto marker version....

It is so hard to get anything done anymore with two kids around, chances are one of them are going to need my attention every minute of the day. 

 So I also made an Awesome cake! Okay, so I didn't end up having enough time to do what I wanted for Kevin's cake, so I threw I said an awesome looking cake, that happened to be shaped like Kevin's head.

But my favorite part is the little bald spot in the back....

 Annalise was very excited about Daddy's Birthday too. So much she couldn't stop running around and screaming and driving mommy crazy. Yay Birthdays.

Happy Birthday Kev!!! 
We Love You!

"Who is in charge here?"

If you lived in my house you would hear this phrase often, because there are many times during the day that I wonder who is really in charge. Now, most of the day it is two kids versus one parent (me).... and I usually get outsmarted by Annalise. That is why it is so wonderful that she started preschool this month! Because apparently one at a time is all I can handle.

Annalise has really began to use her imagination, thanks to her friend Mckade who is dressed up as a different character every day.

But when she is at home it has been movies and computer games lately (thanks to the mold downstairs in our basement....which I am not going to even get into, but all of her toys are down there which means we have to find other forms of entertainment)
So I am glad she has some outside sources, such as preschool and friends to use her imagination and creativity in other ways than the computer. 

So of course Jonah is only getting cuter by the day!
 He took a trip out to Utah with me, for my cousins wedding (while daddy did an amazing job taking care of Annalise and starting school.)
And he unfortunately got a cold, pink eye, and a diaper rash.....the poor thing. But he is doing great now, and feeling much better.And he got to play with his cousin Lucas....who looks a lot like him, they are so stinkin cute together.
He has started to roll both ways now,and he is very close to sitting up on his own. And he also loves to suck his bottom lip.
Oh and another great thing he does, is feed himself a bottle....Priceless (at least to me, it gives me so much more time to get things done)

I love these kids...
