Spiderman and His Amazing Friends

We had a birthday celebration for Luke last weekend too! He is "5" already, and really into SpiderMan. What is it with boys and superheroes?! We kept it small with just cousins, but even then it is pretty big.

Luke's best Spidee imitation! He actually has some pretty good moves. He could either be a gymnist or into karate. I think daddy is leaning towards karate for some reason!!

Pumpkins and Trains

We went to HillCrest Pumpkin Patch last weekend. It was such a blast! We rode the steam train, climbed the tree house, and barely made it across the rope bridge ( this was because Travis and Luke thought it would be funny to bounce across it while I am holding Sam, very challenging to do!). So many photo opportunites, I was running around! Say Cheese!

Travis does everything BIG! He usually goes all out, so he let the boys pick the biggest pumpkins they could find. Needless to say, we had to wagon them to our car.

Make Believe

The world through the eyes of a child is so innocent and silly! The boys love making forts with their daddy (who has a great fort making capacity).

Sam in particular loves to put on silly costumes and parade around the house. He is the clown of the family!

Wardrobe Changes

Nothin like wearing two different Halloween costumes on the SAME day. We had two different parties this day, and the boys wanted to be different characters for each party. You can see Spiderman (with my niece as Ariel).

Travis and Sam love to watch the 'Back to the Future' movies. Sam wanted to be Marty McFly this Halloween. Here is what we came up with.

Eat your heart out ladies!!!For our next party, they wanted to be characters from the 'Arthur and the Invisibles' movie. Here is our homemade works of art. (Do you think we watch alot of movies??!!)

Travis' mom does a pumkin patch party every year and goes all out! She has pumpkins to decorate, crafts to paint, create and glue. She even had a hay ride this year. Here are all the participants who dressed up, the rest were fuddy-duddies!

School Days

My baby is in pre-school! He was quite excited about starting! Of course Sam couldn't let him get away with having a picture by himself. He is such the poser! I thought this would be a great bonding time for Sam and I, but all I hear from him is "When's Luke comin home?".

Mud Wrestling

Here is a typical summer day at our house. I have resigned to the fact that everytime we play outside, we have to de-mud to come back inside. This took me a while to adjust to, but the hours of fun for the boys is worth it to me!

And here is the aftermath. What a charmed life!!
