Summer's coming to a close and we are hitting the clearance racks... and the regular ones too. I don't love shopping for the kids, with the kids, unless I find something I'm excited about, thus hoping to get them excited about it too. A Harry Potter shirt? Um, check! He's trying to show me the whole shirt so he's pulling his face back because that helps... ha! I love that triple chin!
Pumpkin patch time! EZ loves it more every year as he grows and learns to have fun. He used to be so timid about trying new stuff or being around a bunch of strangers. But not anymore! He will take right off and have himself a ton of fun! It's good for him, and usually for me too!
EZ started another gym. It's just one month long and they introduce the kids to all kinds of sports. He totally loved it and wants to keep doing fun activities like this. It just gets hard with winter around the corner. We do what we can, when we can!
EZ's had a loose tooth for a while. Pretty early for his age! It got real wiggly one night so we decided to tie a string to it and do the slam-the-door maneuver. Okay, do you know how hard it actually is to tie a string to a tooth? Really hard! It kept sliding off. It took us over 10 minutes to do it. Finally, I got it to come out. We could even see the new one coming through. EZ did a great job too. He kept giggling and saying, "I can't believe I lost my first tooth!" He said that for a whole week! He's getting to be such a big boy! Oh and the tooth fairy brought him a dollar coin. He was so sad at first because he thought the tooth fairy was going to bring him a new toy.... guess we didn't quite explain it well enough to him! He got excited eventually about having his own money. He hasn't spent it yet though... he's a saver. I guess we got that lesson down! Haha!
It's getting colder and there are leaves EVERYWHERE! We had to spend some time playing in the leaves before it got too chilly! I'm so glad when EZ has the desire to play outside, we gotta soak it up before winter gets here!
We had a family night with cousins and grandparents where we each painted a pumpkin. Mine was a super hero one. Here's the best picture of The Flash. I also have Superman and Batman on the other sides. They didn't turn out as good as The Flash so we'll just post one picture! The other littler one is EZ's. Bruce and Dad did one together. I guess I didn't get a picture of that one... it was real tiny and had a funny face on it. It's always so fun to paint pumpkins with kids. I hope we keep this a tradition. I haven't carved a pumpkin in years and I really have no desire to! Hee hee
We bought bounce back passes when we went to Cornbelly's the first time and so this time we had to go with Daddy! It was way colder then we expected and we were not dressed well enough for it. But, it was still fun and still totally worth it!
EZ had gym on Halloween morning. Bruce got to wear his Halloween shirt before changing into his costume later. Here we are just waiting and watching EZ. Bruce seriously has one of the cutest faces ever! He's so good at making lots of different expressions. I love that silly face! The last picture is at Grandma and Grandpa's house. The kids have so much fun with those cats every time we go there and the cats are great with the kids. I just thought it was cute seeing a little Batman nearly having a conversation with a little kitty. Kids are the best!
