catching up...again

My how time flies. So once again I'm going to start a while back to catch up. This is my journal/scrapbook of our lives so bear with me.

Jason has been reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe to the boys and earlier this month they got to the chapter on the Turkish Delight that the witch gave to Edmond. So I remembered seeing some at our local discount store (Ross) and bought a bag so the boys could try it out. My memory of it was that is was disgusting and tasted like roses. But this version (probably Americanized) were in citrus flavors and all 3 kiddo's quickly ate their share and wanted more. Ethan told me that he could see why Edmond couldn't stop eating it. Then we had a great lesson on sin and temptation. Gotta love how candy can lead to a lesson of the heart.

Jude not sure at first about Turkish Delight.

I realized it's hard to take pictures of kids eating without it looking like they're hating every bite.

Ansley gave me a great smile...and loving her Turkish Delight.

Our pineapple is finally growing. It only took about 18 months and I'm not sure if it will get any bigger than that. I am amazed that pineapples don't cost more than they do considering it takes that long to grow one...and each plant only grows one pineapple.

halloween pics

(Still catching up on the blog...yes I realize this holiday was a few weeks ago)

This is a story about a serious bee, Davy Crockett (a.k. Super Jude...his second choice for costume) and an Indian named Chief Ethan. The serious bee wasn't so sure about this crazy holiday that we dress up and walk around with a bucket in our hand...until people started putting sweet stuff in that bucket and then the very serious bee became a very greedy bee and wanted to eat all the sweet stuff that was put in her bucket.
Davy Crockett and Chief Ethan were great friends and remembered how fun this holiday was and gladly put on their costumes and made sure they remembered their buckets because they knew the loot that was coming. They had a blast playing all the fun games.At the end of the day all three were happy and buzzing high on sugar. Fun times!Even the serious bee had a big smile on her face...the end.

birthday party

The boys were invited to their buddy's birthday party at the firestation. It's amazing how attentive little boys can be when a fireman is talking. They had a blast sitting in the backseat of the fire truck, taking a tour of the fireman's living quarters and turning on and spraying a firehose (with some help from a fireman).

crazy eyes

My mom sent these chocolate eye balls to us for Halloween and the boys thought it was hilarious to hold them up to their eyes. Gotta love the humor of boys!

trying to catch up

I am so far behind that I decided I was just going to jump in and start posting pictures and catch everyone up to where we are. Still feeling nauseous and tired but I am past the first trimester and hoping I am nearing the end of nausea...the tired part has gotten a little better.

So I'll start with some pictures of Ansley from about a month ago. These are for the fam because I know that have been dying to see pictures of the kiddo's. Pictures of my crazy boys coming soon.

This girl is not bashful about putting away the food. I think she might be hitting a growth spurt.
