How 'bout them apples?

Saturday we headed out with a group from church to a local apple orchard. The orchard donates a lot of apples to the food bank, and just needs some volunteers to pick them. That's where we came in.

The whole family had fun, and it was a nice experience. And yes, I made us all wear brown shirts. So I wanted us to coordinate while we picked up apples, that's not weird, is it?

I have found that this website is a pretty good use of my time.

Pocahontas and some new paint

Do you act out movies while you watch them? Because around here, we do.
Here's Jagger with his face painted, just like the Indians, and ready to fight.
And here is Cash, doing his best John Smith impression.
Incidentally, this is also the "before" photo for my little weekend project.

The old TV console got a little makeover. Likey?

Sometimes I worry about the example I am setting

...for my boys that is. Here's a quick story, you decide.

This morning I have been rearranging some things around the house, mainly packing up all the sea shells I have out and bringing out some more fallish decor... pumpkins, acorns, etc. Jagger and Cash are playing nicely in the background.

I am pretty happy until I hear Jagger say:
"Cash, let's dock the pirate ship so we can go to the pumpkin store. We need to decorate the pirate ship for fall!"

Is that weird? It's not sitting with me too well.

Birthday Parties Make Me Bonkers

But as a couple of my wise aunts always tell me, "It's not about Brei anymore."
Yep, Iwas stressed out, but the boys had fun.

Although I did have fun making the cake, I have to admit.

There were 11 kiddos all together.
I totally thought I was in the picture above and was smiling cheesily.

The boys got lots of good loot! Thank you friends!

Here's half of the gang before we left. Sadly, it was the best group shot I could get.
It was about 8:30, and I don't know about all the other kids, but my kids came home with a sugar high and stayed up really late, and then crashed hard!
...But that's how we party around here.
