So I am a little late! We were not going to dress the boys up and go trick or treating because we (andrew and I) are not big fans of the whole Halloween ordeal. I think the biggest factor was that the Vols were on during that time. Our neighbor gave him a hard time so with that and the thought of potty training chocolate in mind we threw them in their costumes (same as last year) and headed out to conquer the court.

Don't they look like they are going to play catch with the pumpkins? We had to convince Gavin to leave the pumpkin at home. Once they got the hang of it they were good. At first, they weren't too sure about it. The candy is coming in handy because Drew is peeing in the potty first thing in the morning. Gavin isn't interested in anything but Drew sharing his chocolate after he goes. He has gone once but isn't wanting anything to do with it now. I am in no hurry to clean up all those messages. They aren't even 2 1/2 yet!

Here is J. on the excursion. I wonder what we will torture him with next year? Probably the same costume the boys wore this year:) Yes, we are cheap!

Well, I have a hungry baby and two munchkins that are done with mommy being on the computer. I hope someday the boys will find their princess so they won't be a frog forever!

Happy Monday

It is just after 11 and I have worked out this morning, taken a shower and given one, fixed breakfast, fixed Andrew's lunch, emptied the dishwasher, stripped the sheets off the boys bed (that was also why the shower was needed this morning),vacuumed the whole house, washed the sheets and put them back on their bed, and just finished reading my 20 emails and my favorite blogs-again I will repeat all before 11:00. I forgot I also nursed the baby and gave some love to all the boys who seemed to have needed a little extra this morning. It is amazing what you can get done when you are up at 5. Anyway, I was going to post pictures of trick or treating but realized the visit to the pumpkin patch should come first.

It was a beautiful day and the boys were really good. The were not big fans of the actual pumpkin patch but they had a good time climbing the hay pyramid and in the corn maze. They were not big fans of the animals either. I know next year will be a whole new ball game.

J. was suppose to be sleeping but I think there was too much going on. I am so glad Daddy got to go because there was no way I was going to attempt it by myself. I may feel like super mom after all that I have gotten done this morning but I know my limits and my kryptonite. Did I mention the boys enjoyed the cookies too? They also downed the real juice mommy always dilutes it at least 50%! This was the real VBS juice! What is it called like TANG or something? I am sure the florescent orange color is all the vitamins in it!

This is one of the few pictures we have of all three boys. Two year olds and infants don't always mix. Our biggest problem is they love him too much!

Trick or treat photos to come! J. is awake and hungry again and I guess I just blogged all before 11:30! All I have left on my to do list is read my Bible study while the boys nap. What a productive Mon.!
