Sunday- The boys working on Jake's Lego thingie while Matthew was sleeping. The only time that Lego can be worked on. He got this one with some birthday money from Gramma Jack and Uncle Danny. So exciting!
Monday- We were so excited to have the chance to see Mark and Edith Garrett. My cousins from Mississippi. They are driving around the United States for a year in their RV. They are visiting friends and family and just going wherever they feel like going! They started in March and will finish in March of 2012. We went to Doughy Joey's Peetza Joynt for dinner with them. (Joe was there too, he just had to leave a little earlier.)
Tuesday- Having the weekly storytime with Gramma Laurie. This week she had a special guest with her. Grandpa Dick was the guest reader! The kids were so excited to see him and especially loved the silly voices and the funny faces. :)
Wednesday- Keeping the Lego away from Matthew by putting it on the stove.
Thursday- Matthew loves to play in the car now. He will sit outside and bang on the side of the van until we open the door for him and then he makes a beeline for the drivers seat, turning on every signal, light and wiper possible. The screams that follow trying to get him out are ear-piercing!
Friday- Lily's Halloween party at school. They all took costumes to school, there was a parade, a random fire alarm and lots of treats and crafts. It was a really fun afternoon. I was able to be there to help out and take pictures.
Saturday- Jake got a package from Gramma and Papa in California with birthday gifts and Halloween costumes. Joe's mom is uh-may-zing when it comes to costumes. She did some great Carebear ones a few years ago for them but I think the costumes this year are my favorite. Jake and Matthew got a little costume photo shoot. More to come on that later. We also went to a pumpkin farm and picked out pumpkins for each kid. That was exciting for Matthew. He loved the little tiny ones! This is the best shot of the 4 kids. I know. Pathetic.
There were lots of extra pictures this week. I am leaving out the costume ones for sharing tomorrow.
Linking up with NaptimeMomTog this week. As usual. You know what to do!
