Double Trouble

The boys are into everything these days. I clean up the same messes around the house at least ten times a day! They are already trouble together!
I'm pretty sure the dishwasher door is not made to hold one small child on it, let alone two.

They have already started wrestling. Mostly Griffin attacks Crew for whatever he has or is playing with. He grabs his shirt or pants or anything he can get hold of and just pushes him to the ground. Poor Crew, he is the little runt. He gets picked on becuase he's the smallest of the three.

Griffin carries his empty bottle all around the house. He crawls around with it hanging out of his mouth. He will sit up every once in a while and suck on it for a minute and then off he goes again. He never has taken a binki for one second of his life so I guess that's why he sucks on his bottle as a binki instead.

I caught all three of them playing in the toilet. They were all splashing and laughing, just having the greatest time! I don't know why that's so fun for them!

Fall Leaves

We have had fun raking up piles of leaves in the yard and playing in them before winter gets here. The boys enjoy eating them along with the rocks and grass, they must taste good!

Dinosaur Museum

A couple of weeks ago we went to the Dinosaur Muesem at Thanksgiving Point to check it out. The kids were all entertained and so good in their strollers the whole time, which is a big accomplishment for us. It was a very enjoyable outing and afternoon. Ava kept pointing to all of the dinosaur's saying "oh cute." I'm not sure that's how I would describe a dinosaur, but that's what she thought of them, except she hid her head in my shoulder when we saw the big shark mouth. She didn't enjoy that part but the boys didn't mind it!

The boys sharing an ice cream cone after. Mostly it was Griffin eating it and allowing Crew to have a taste here and there! Griffin is such a munch mouth, I think he would eat non-stop all day if we let him!

Ava was concentrating so hard on feeding her dinosaur some of her ice cream! She does this funny thing with her tongue when she's really thinking hard about something!

Ava wanted to try on part of aunt Shaley's witch costume while she was making it! I guess she thought the hat was supposed to cover her whole face, she wouldn't put it up on her head!

Two Beautiful Butterflies--Ava and Adrie

The Turtle Dudes

Cousin Bella with Ava

I love the sound of the leaves crunching as you push the stroller or walk over all the leaves that have fallen on the sidewalk. It sounds like Fall!

We ran into Claire and Mickisha outside when we were finishing up Trick-or Treating!

All the Loot! Ava chose Skittles at every house that had them, so half of her candy was the same. She doesn't even like them that much so it's funny she kept choosing them!

Halloween Eve

Ava helped me make a fun Halloween Eve dinner. We had soup in breadbowls and her favorite parts were the twisty straws and spiders that she picked out!
