Garren's Birthday

Garren turned 11 this weekend and we celebrated Sunday afternoon with a costume party. It was so much fun!!

Scarecrow Festival

We lined the streets early Saturday morning for the annual Scarecrow festival parade. The boys got tons of candy and had a blast. Graham, however, did not enjoy the fire trucks. They were a little too loud. Garren rode on his Karate schools float and we got to watch him fight on the main stage after the parade. It was a great day!

It's a Bright Sonshinny Day

Luke started Sonshine school on Tuesday and I couldn't believe what happened when I picked him up. I expected to walk up and see him sitting in his teachers lap. I imagined he'd be tired and clingy. No, no,no. I walked up and started looking for my baby somewhere in that big gym and he was gone! There was a toddler running around with all the other kids. I couldn't believe how big he looked! I was torn between saddness and excitement.

Ms. Pam said he had a wonderful day. She can't believe how night and day different he and Jake are. She also couldn't believe how he tackled Jake when they got together that afternoon. She said he talked to her more in one day than Jake did in the first 6 months.

Today's note home said that "Luke ate a good and that he REALLY loves lunch time." Ha, ha... he's my little He Man. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful place for my children.

Halloween is Just Around the Corner

The Bribe

After months and months of trying to get Jake to "take care of his business" on the potty, he is finally FULLY potty trained!!!!!! Last weekend we paid off on the bribe we have been telling him about for months. After Laura took their halloween pictures we all loaded up and drove to Dallas to hop on the TRE to Fort Worth. The kids had a blast and now every time he goes he says "it's time to go on the DART." I guess he didn't realize there was a one time pay day.

Uncle Carl was there too, but I didn't manage to get a pic.

Jake intently watched to scenery on the way there. On the way back he worked the map and would announce the next stop. At one point the train waited a little too long so he shouted, "All Aboard" as serious as a train conductor, everyone on the train laughed.

This is Luke eating corn pop 2 of 3. We actually had to give him one in the stroller and he ate it as we walked around Fort Worth.
