Halloween Preview

Here are the kids in their Halloween costumes. We just bought them the other day, and of course, we had to try them on to make sure they were keepers.

It was nice to finally get L to be something other than a princess or fairy. She liked this witch costume because it was not scary looking, the skirt glows, and it reminded her of the witches at Gardner Village that we go see each year.

Q does not like to dress up, and I was nervous that we would not find a costume he would like. Internet searching uncovered this fabulous SuperWhy costume at Halloween USA which is over near FYE on Redwood. How perfect!! SuperWhy is one of his favorite shows. I did not even have to show the costume to him...he saw it on the rack and started to yell Super why! Super why! He even let us try it on him. how cool huh????
Anyways, Halloween this year should be fun!!

So, we tried to go out swimming the other night, and found out the pool is closed for maintenance, so we hit up the local Chili's (on dad's wallet, naturally) instead. While we were there, some pretty cool things happened with the kiddies! Quinn ordered his own dinner...he looked right at the waitress and said 'ee sanwich ee fries, ah muk'. translated, this means a sandwich and fries and milk. It was just too cool!! He got a grilled cheese, and fries and milk, and ate well! Lily also had some fun things go on. Her daddy drilled her on her math facts and we found out that she can add double digit with single digit math problems with little to no error, and she is fairly good at the lower double digit plus double digit problems as well. Then she shocked us when she said she could spell Mississippi. All fired up to show us, she said "m, r, s, period, s, i, p, i. See? Mrs. Sipi!" That one could not keep us from laughing right out loud. Just too cool.
Anyways, that is all for now! Going to Swiss Days in an hour. They have the best bbq beef dinner. tradition!

Kids and their crazies

This is just a quick little update on the fun things that have been happening at our house lately!

First, Lily is absolutely loving 1st grade, she reads like a champ, gets 100% on her spelling tests, and was recently moved to the top tier group in her class. Go Lily! She is also great at helping mom and dad with both of her little brothers. She holds Quinn when they go for SHORT motorcycle rides with daddy, and she gets things for mom when our 'other little brother' is kicking or sitting on a nerve, or whatever it is they do while they are cooking! The first pic is of Lily and dad and Q going to the park in our neighborhood. The next pic is of Q. He decided to be mr. domestic and do the dishes! He opened the dishwasher and stood up on it to reach the top rack. From there, you can see what he did. Then he proudly told me 'a diss ah done!' Yes, Q-B-Doo, the dishes are all done. Such a helper! Lastly, I was telling Q to bring me a diaper since Lily had noticed that he was not smelling the greatest, and instead he said 'way down bear. Iss a good bear, way down', and when I looked, he was trying to put the diaper on his teddy bear! It was just too cute. Did he not realize that HE was the stinky one? Bear was clean. Needless to say, I helped him change bear, and once we were done, he realized the diaper covered the tag on the bear, and that was just not going to work. So, off came the diaper so Q's fingers could wind around the tag. Too much fun at our house today!!

Lily's first day of school!

Today was the first day back to school for miss Lily. She is a 1st grader now!! I didn't even need to get her out of bed...she did it all on her own, and was dressed and waiting for me when I got up. (I guess she was excited or something.) It was awesome!!

Here are some pics of her first day. Running to line up, waiting in line, at her desk already working and one of her name tag and pencil box, that she was very proud of! Too cool! She also had her lunch money in her back pack, and I can't wait to hear how her day went! School gets out at 3:20, and I can't wait to get her so we can talk!
