Pumpkins and Sharks and Ghosts, Oh My!

We’re gearing up for Halloween up in here.

October 2011 062

At school party time…. all the 3 year olds and 4 year olds were cute as can be.

Countryside Halloween Party 031

This is Shark Boy Cash and his girlfriend.  He loves to talk about her.  A lot. 

Lilly this… Lilly that.  He’s smitten.

Jagger’s school party involved NO costumes.  Booooo.

Oct 11 001Oct 11 003

But that’s ok. 

We make up for all that political correctness by dressing up all crazy like every day at home.

“I got the moves like Jagger,” he sings.

That’s What He Said, This Day in October

October 2011 032

I peed on my shirt!  Is that a problem?

Yes, son.  Yes it is.

October 2011 006

Is Holy Crap a bad word?

Um, yes.

October 2011 042

What does the middle finger mean? 

Oh dear.  Lord, help me now.

October 2011 050

Aside from the middle finger curiosity, I wish I could hit pause and not let them grow any bigger.  4 and 6 is just where I like em.

The Boys’ Wing

Ok, so they don’t actually have their own wing of the house.  But they do have their own bathroom, and their space is all the way on the other side of the house…. so I’m just gonna call it a wing.   WING!

I wish I had a before picture of the bathroom.  But I don’t.  So I am just going to have to paint it for you.  Carpet, floral wallpaper, deteriorating vanity, painted blue ceiling, and the old school type of lighting fixture that contains the electrical outlet.  Ok, is it fresh in your mind?  Good.  Because here the after photos:

I am super pleased with it!  So fresh and so clean.  Mama like. 

Big shout out to the husband for making it happen!

Of course he did it all. 

Tile, wainscoting, painting, installation… blah blah blah. 

I peeled wall paper.  Kenzie helped. 

And because I feel like giving you a tour of the rest of the boys’ room, here ya go….

Big thanks to you guys for helping Jagger out with his collection! 

Kenzie & Henry, Mike & Jessica, Grandma Z, & Nicole, and to the other's that have said they will send one this way….. you all are awesome!  And I’ve got a happy little 6 year old. 

October 2011 025 

Here is Jagger’s “bank.”  He is saving for an eagle.  I kid you not. 

 October 2011 027

We’re also on the hunt for more road signs.  It’s sorta their thing.  But the big ones sure do get pricey. 

October 2011 019

And here are more prized possessions:

1. Shark tooth guide  2. Counterfeit money  3.  Awesome artwork  4. Something silly Kenzie made  5. Jagger’s first autograph….I don’t know who it is, except for he was a former professional soccer player that appears to have the initials D and S….and he looks like this:


Anyway, this concludes your tour of the West Wing.

So now that we are done with the little bathroom…. the kitchen is next on the list.  Will it really get done?  I have no idea.

October Stuffs

It seems as if I have lost my enthusiasm for blogging lately.  I’m pretty sure the blame can go to the wonderful weather this month, Pinterest, and, uh, Wall Street.  Why not? 

Even so, I was told it is my turn to blog.  And I can’t let the people down.  I refuse to let all three of you down.  And Alisha, I think it’s your turn in scrabble.  Also, I am setting up two more posts for tomorrow and the day after.  I’m on a roll people.  This is crazy. 

So, back to blog number one of this week. 

Last week, Kenzie and I took the boys out for a mini photo shoot.  The weather was nice and the leaves were pretty, so I figured it was an awesome idea to make my offspring wear flannel and take some pics out on the local trail. 

I got a few good ones.

Yes they are cute.  And yes, Grant is wearing overalls. 

Do you know about Grant and the overalls situation?  Well, the situation is: He loves them!  A lot.  More than any normal 20-something-year-old that isn’t a farmer.  Since living in Great Grandpa’s house, Grant has had unlimited access to Great Grandpa’s overalls.  I think it’s sweet that he wears his Grandpa’s things.  After all, I can hardly picture Great Grandpa in anything but overalls.  Anywho, Grant likes the overalls so much, he is almost abusing the privilege.  Sometimes he pretends to be Kris Kross but usually he just pretends to be uber hillbilly. 

Yes, that’s my husband about to go hand fishin’. 

Anyways, back to the boys photo shoot.  It ended quite abruptly when a rock ruined Cash’s day. 

October 2011 210

No bueno!  I hate to see my boys hurt. 

I was fearful that he was going to need stitches or the like, but once we got it all cleaned up, it was just a tiny cut.  And everything was better when I promised him popcorn and a movie night.   

And because I can’t leave you with that terrible picture of Cash in your mind, I’ll throw in some randomness to ease your mind.

This is the back yard right about now.  It gets to be dang pretty in October. 

However, these boogers are what is all over the front yard.

 October 2011 043

I only wish this kind of tree on my enemies.  And maybe my frenemies.  Well, whatever.  I hardly ever waste time wishing about the trees of others.  Just make sure you don’t have a Sweet Gum Tree if you like walking in your yard.  It’s quite bothersome. 

October 2011 033

This little headless man is consistantly decked out as follows: Half Mizzou, half Jayhawk, and half safety-pinned Superman.  Yes, I know that is 3 halves, so what? He just really loves the Big 12 and wants us stay united. 

And that’s all the randomness that I could come up with today.  There will be more tomorrow. 

If I was a dinosaur, I would be blogasaurus rex.
