Halloween Festivities

 Since Halloween fell on Sunday, we opted to just let the boys particpate in Trunk or Treat at the church on the 22nd. They had lots of fun. Will was one of the cutest farmer/cowboys ever and of course we got lots of compliments on our "Little Stinker."

The next weekend we made Santa Fe Soup and Mummy Dogs and carved our pumpkin. Jack was napping during the carving so I don't have any pictures of him "helping."

Tornado Warnings

What do you do when your kids are sleeping and the weatherman tells you a tornado could at any second drop on your house? Wake them up of course! Then shove them into a closet and pray they stay sleeping.

This morning, not even an hour after I'd made and fed the boys breakfast, Will came to me asking for a snack. I told him I'd just fed him. He replied that he would like chocolate milk and pretzels. I said, "Will, I just fed you breakfast not even an hour ago, and you already want a snack?" He said, "You said it, Sista."

We couldn't help but get outside and enjoy the lovely fall weather.

Boys Will Be Boys

  I was cleaning bathrooms at record speed when the thought came to me, "Will and Jack are playing so nicely together today." Realizing what I was thinking, I stopped cleaning to make sure they were both still breathing. That's when I found this:
Apparently, while I had been cleaning they had been "doing firefighter work" as Will put it. Then in one of my shinning moments as a  mother, I (now regretfully) said, "William, you are not a firefighter." He looked at me as if I'd just broken his heart and simply said,"Mommy?" I felt like dirt. I Immediately apologized for my comment and told him he was a terrific fireman but to stay out of my fireplace!! The harm was already done though. The styrofoam logs that we hadn't planned on using now we definitely couldn't because they were broken. There was also some nice charcoal-y colors smeared into the almost white carpet. Boys...
