Gettin better its only been a little over 2 weeks now!

Halloween was so much fun...The boys dressed up like pirates. All Colton wanted to wear was the pants, the headband and the earing, NO shirts nothing that came with the outfit. And as soon as Colton was dressed he ran with the neighbor kids and we had to go looking for him. Kade was so happy just to sit on the doorstep and hand out candy to everyone...We ran out of candy had over 200 pieces. It was like nothing I had ever seen before. Austin of course went out with his friends as a hippie and at his candy the first night. He is worse than the little ones.

The other day I took Colton and Kade to storytime at the library and the narrator dressed up as a grandma with a white wig. Colton was standing over me and he was eye level with my hair and was looking at my grey hairs obviously..I thought he was gonna blurt out..YOU HAVE THE SAME HAIR COLOR AS MY MOM! That was my clue to make my appt. with the hairdresser for a highlight. Wow close call on that!

I have been having to hide all the halloween candy from even myself now...And the last place I hid it was over the microwave so Colton couldn't get at it. Well he found a way, he brought over the bar stool and then set the step stool on top of the bar stool for more height. He didn't even fall that looked so unstable if you asked me. He always shares a piece with Kade when he gets his counterband Kade will get in trouble too!

The other night the babies and I were taking a tub together...and I noticed my legs were getting to look less desirable as I am gracefully aging....NOT and I said to myself, "I am getting OLD", Colton then said and gonna die Mom and live with Heavenly Father? I said no honey I am justing getting older, like Grandma Barbara. OH well when you die, I want to go with you to live with Heavenly Father.....Kade goes not me, Dad and I will stay home.

Kade of course is still the same cute adorable little guy.

The picture download was not working before!

Maybe not once a week

I thought I would wait until Halloween but I said I would try to do this at least once a week, that might be a stretch though. Anyway....nothing really exciting to report lately...except Kade's choice words for few new things he has discovered. I bought a step stool so I can reach the shelves in my closet that are 10 feet high...why would any builder make shelves that high..its so frustrating trying to put stuff up there then need it again the next day of course being the 5'3" that I am...Well Kade got onto the stool and noticed my jewelry box and jewels...he was in his glory. Donning everything that he saw that sparkled or not! He was yelling for me to show me all the "jerley" he found. So now we ask him to say jerley all the time..its really precious.

Austin will soon get his cast of but not soon enough if you ask him. He is anxious to play basketball again but we are not sure if that is gonna happen. We are going to sign him up for guitar lesson I think soon so he has some extra curricular activity to entertain him.

Colton loves preschool...this week they have their halloween party he is gonna be a pirate..but has changed his mind several times already...too bad so sad the costume is bought..they are both going to be pirates..they are fighting over who is going to wear the earring though. I might have to break down and buy 2!
Kade crys when we won't paint his nails...a bit worried there!

Well we just got our itinerary for our 3rd cruise of the year....Mexican Riveria on December 1st for a week. We are excited about it and hope that the weather is better there than it will be here...With over 8 inches of snow we are going to be in for a long winter I believe.

Well enough for now...I think I might hire Julie to do this for me...just kidding

It has been 10 months since last Blog!

Well all is well now life sure has been hectic lately. I have not really anything exciting or earth shattering to report...just a few updates... We moved in May, we love our new home, but it takes so much time to get things the way you want and need. We have been busy traveling this summer with and without the boys...enjoying the funny and not so funny things they say to us each and every day!

Last night I was making dinner and Kade was sitting at the island on the barstool and he asked me, "what we havin tonight mom?" So grown up! Kade is an absolute angel, he says I love you all the time, wants you to hold and kiss him....well the other one, read on to see how he is

I told Colton we had to go to church the other morning so he needed to get dressed, he said, "church sucks" so matter of factly.
Colton had pictures today at school, he so did NOT want to wear his church clothes obviously, but he did.......however he wanted to wear his hair in a mohawk no negotiating there he won! Colton is truly me in every way except appearance. He is very sensitive to smells, noises, doesn't stop talking, wants to do it his way ONLY, he is never wrong, doesn't mind, yells and uses any word that is inappropriate that he has heard from anyone...especially Austin whom he truly adores and looks up too!

Austin is for sure a 13 1/2 year old teenager....he is very sweet too when he wants to something, I mean when he wants to be.....He was playing football till he fractured his growth plate in his right ankle, now he is mastering the Playstation. He likes not having any chores although the dr. said in a week he can start to walk on it so he will be helping out again around here...Grandma Barbara's visit sure did spoil him. He has no one to do stuff for him now...cuz I have plenty to keep me busy.

I really like the idea of this blog thing, but I think I like better reading what other people write rather than write my own stuff. Needless to say that is why you haven't seen anything in 10 months. Its really like a journal entry so I better keep up with it either in my journals or here...Cuz you don't remember what these kids say from day to day..cuz the new things are so frequent!

Doing well

Austin started taking Spanish classes and each day he comes home trying to talk to me...he tells me that I have to communicate with him in Spanish from now on....Well he only know like 10 words so there won't be no communicating there huh? He got his report card and got all straight A's expect for a B in Science I asked him why and he said that on a test someone asked him something so was talking and the teacher ripped up the test for a score of ZERO....Well that is what happens when you are in the real world I told him. He was at the Orthodontist yesterday and you have to sign in for your appt. and the nurse told Austin that this girl signed in after him and she saw his name on the log and said, "Austin Hallows, he's HOT!" He was like doing some funky dance saying I'm HOT, I'm HOT....he is his father for sure!

Colton's vocabulary is amazing....some frequent words he is now trying to incorporate into his speech. Impossible, Awesome, and FREAKing. He says them somewhat in the correct speech pattern but you understand what he means most of the time. Kade and Colton are in the is jungle gym play class together and Colton took to it immediately...running the class, the most vocal, tells stories about everything the teacher mentions...etc...Kade, he stood on the side lines with his hands in his jean pockets watching ever move that was made...he wasn't too interested in participating...but when he did Colton made sure that he told the teacher to NOT hurt his brother, Kade.

Steve renched his back the other day...He said, "I sure do miss your mom's backrubs now". He couldn't even get out of bed. I had to call the Dr. and have them call in meds so he could move. He is up and moving but not at full capacity yet. He had a chiro appt. today and a massage scheduled for tommorrow so we will see how the weekend ends up so we can go have some fun in the snow.

I am doing fine not as busy right now thankfully since I am taking January and February off from work for a break. I am enjoying my boys more and more each day...They are always making me smile or laugh at the funny or not so funny things they do. Colton wants to snowboard everyday although I don't let him since its been only 10 degrees for the past 10 days. It feels like the winters in CT that is why I left there in the first place. I hate it! I prefer it when it snows at least its pretty and cold.
