Picnics are the BEST!!

Today after school the kids wanted to have a picnic. So Braden got the snacks together and Kaylee made Kool-Aid. They stayed out there for over an hour!! I would have LOVED to have been a fly on the trampoline and been able to listen to their conversation, but every time I went out there they would only talk to me. These are the times I absolutely LOVE!! Making memories!!!
Oh and Braden does not wear a tie to school on a normal basis, but today was kids dress as teachers @ school! Kaylee stripped her clothes as soon as the walked in the door!!

Nerd Day @ School!

Today was Nerd Day @ School for Basketball Homecoming. We had fun at our house dressing up for this! As you can tell, Braden got his inspiration from Steve Erkel!! We had a little harder time with finding girl nerdy things, but all turned out well!! I don't have any pictures of myself, but I dressed up also!! It was a great time had by all!!

Kids Say the Darndest Things

Just like many other kids, there is no telling what will come out our kid's mouths!! The other day while I was fixing Braden's hair before school he told me "Mom, I love you more than gum!!" Then one day on the way to school Braden was having one of his many deep conversations about the alphabet and Kaylee joined in with, "Mommy, was the alphabet invented when you were a kid?" Just now as I am typing this Kaylee says "I am going to make a journal about my life so when I am old I don't forget it!" Don't you just LOVE their minds sometimes!!

Pumpkin Patch

Another tradition we have created with our kids is going to the pumpkin patch at a local church and taking pics and picking out "our pumpkin" for carving. This year we decided to let the kids wear their costumes (a first for us). They had a great time, as usual, and I took WAY too many pics to post all of them on here so here are a few of my favs!

Our Doctor and OSU Spirit Rider
Our beautiful princess without her hat!

One of my favorite pics!!
Pull! Pull! Pull!

Buying the best pumpkin there!

Trick or Treating

As usual we spent Halloween evening Trick-or-Treating with friends here in town. Dale had a tough decision to make that day, but decide to go to the OSU-TX game that evening! We are so blessed to have such great friends, the 5 of us adults loaded up all the kids and off we went!!

The Line-Up!!
Kaylee the Doctor, Braden the OSU Spirit Rider, Kaitlyn the Bee, Baylee the Ladybug, Kyle as Indiana Jones and Wyatt as Elvis!
Her Speech Teacher (yes she really is old enough to be her teacher!!)
Did someone drop something??

Pumpkin' Carvin'

Every year since Dale and I got married, we have carved (or decorated) a pumpkin. The year of Kaylee's first Halloween, we went to the pumpkin patch and took pictures and picked out our family prize pumpkin. We have continued this tradition every year so far. (I have pumpkin patch pics to post later!) As soon as the kids were big enough to sit up Dale has sat them on the table and carved the pumpkin. They each get to pick how they want their eye and then one gets to pick the nose and one picks the mouth. This year I was not sure if I was going to allow them to sit on the new table, but they would not have it any other way!!

This was the ONLY time she stuck her hand in there!
Kaylee's eye was a moon shape (Braden's is a triangle)
The finished product. They don't get too fancy but they sure do have fun!!
All our lil pumpkins!
