Award Ceremony

We are very proud of our Ethan for how well he has taken to school! He is absolutely in love with it. His teacher has told us before how wonderful he has been in class and we are totally those parents who ask "My child? Are you sure??? Maybe you got the wrong kid" Well, to be fair we know he is a really great kid and loves to learn so it is not that much of a surprise. While Gracie throws a fit during any activity, Ethan is always ready and waiting to learn something new. However, to know that your baby is doing well makes any mommy happy!

Ethan was able to get all 4 ribbons!
He even got the Pillar of Character which is only given to one student in each class!

Family Bond

Me: Hey guys, today is Friday so that means dad will be home for two days!

Gracie: YEAH!!!! We will be a family again!

Ethan: Gracie, even when mom and dad die we will still be a family.

Me: A little morbid, but you are right. You guys will always be family!

Halloween Ghost Craft

Below are some pictures of me painting the kids feet, which they thought was hilarious!

This picture cracks us up because you can see Gracie
posing for the camera in the background.

Another one of Gracie that makes us laugh.

To go along with the great weather we have been having.
I made some chocolate drizzled trail mix for us to snack on.
It is really easy and such a great snack.
The kids liked it so much, I will be packing some in their lunch boxes to take to school this week.

Weather Craziness

This is what happens when your children hijack your phone.

I couldn't stop laughing when they showed it to me. They even gave each other fake names. We were having a little party that day so that is why so much attention was being placed on the weather.
