this past week...

Since nothing "really exciting" has happened around here, you get to enjoy some of my favorite pictures and videos of our everyday life from this past week...

All ready for church
If you can interpret what she's saying, please let us know:)

This one is kind of long, but you need to watch the end to see what Brenna does when she gets spit up on her hand:) video

 Tyson is going to kill me when he sees this on here - I couldn't help it - they look so much alike!
Easton is REALLY enjoying his new car seat - we find him like this all the time - I still need to eat those cheeks!

It has happened...

She has discovered the world of Princesses. She wants to wear this ALL DAY EVERY DAY and she just can't seem to figure out why we won't let her wear it to church.

Happy Half Birthday!

I can't believe that half a year has gone so fast! Easton turned 6 months old today and he's still just SO SO sweet. The poor little guy has been fighting colds, fevers and an ear infection for the past couple of weeks. Because of him being sick he STILL isn't sleeping through the night. There were a couple of nights that Tyson and I had to take shifts with him - he would sleep, but insist that we held him the WHOLE time. Other nights, he'll get up almost every hour, but the past few nights, he's only gotten up maybe twice. Needless to say, we're all still pretty tired around here. Brenna was such a good sleeper (she slept 11 hours consistently starting at 3 months) so this is new to us and we REALLY hope it changes for the better soon. He doesn't go in for his 6 month check up until Monday, but as of last Sat. when we took him for his ear - he weighs 20 pounds!!! Brenna was MAYBE that much at 12 months. He's not fat - he's just SOLID! He's started solid foods, but doesn't seem to care for them just yet (he is, however, very interested in food WE eat - none of this baby food stuff for him!) Since we have such a solid child, we had to go out last night and spend more money on ANOTHER car seat. This one should last him until he's 100 pounds - so I think we're set.
He's getting pretty good at sitting and he totally knows how to roll over, he simply chooses not do do it very often. He was in a silly mood this morning, so I thought I'd snap a few pictures, but of course, he decided to stop the smiling when he saw the camera - here are a few good ones. Happy Half Birthday Bud!!

Elmo and the frog...

Halloween was pretty fun this year - I don't think the kids know why we did what we did, but they had fun anyway:)

Here is Easton's best scared face


Here's a really good cute one:)

Brenna was VERY excited about the whole pumpkin carving idea. She is still very into Elmo, but since she got Finding Nemo for her birthday (and wants to watch it several times everyday) she's also very into Nemo. Tyson printed off a few ideas for her pumpkin and we let her pick. She finally decided on Nemo AND Elmo. So we did Nemo for hers and Elmo for Easton (since he really doesn't care).

she really liked playing with the "guts" but only when they were outside of the pumpkin.


Easton wanted to play with them really bad and tried and tried to get them - he actually succeeded a few times and thanks to my fast catching skills, they didn't end up on the floor.

Of course, Brenna lost interest after the guts were taken out, and Easton got fussy, so Tyson ended up carving all three. He'll tell you he hated doing it, but I know he really liked it. Can you tell which one is his????

And which one is mine??

Sadly, Tyson's died a few days later




Our little frog - I'm SO glad it still fit (it's a size 0-3months and he's currently wearing 9months). It was a tiny bit short, but he didn't mind.
Here he is showing off his awesome sitting skills

Brenna was VERY excited to wear her Elmo costume. But I could NOT get a good picture of her for the life of me. She is so busy, every time I try to take a picture, I get the head turned or the eyes shut, or the "I'm mad because you're making me stop what I'm doing" look. Oh well, she still looked cute.



Of course it was raining that night. Brenna wanted to go out SO bad and we kept telling her we had to wait until the rain stopped, so she sad on the door step and watched until it did.

there was finally a break in the storm, so we decided to walk around the block for Trick-or-Treating.

we found out the little frog had an ear infection earlier that day, but he didn't seem to mind following Elmo around in his stroller.

we ended up being babies and got cold after a few houses and Brenna kept getting freaked out at every house, so we came home early. Don't worry, Brenna thinks she scored big time with the candy and we're letting her think she really did!

What's in her purse you ask???

Well, as of 1:30 today - it's all of this. My personal favorite is the screw - because you never know when you'll have to fix something.  ??

Pretty Pretty...

Brenna is really into "pretty things" now days - she has to take at least two purses everywhere we go. I LOVE looking in her purses to see what she thinks she needs in them - it makes me laugh so hard!  (note, she picked out her own clothes the day these pictures were taken - quite the combo huh?)

Rice Rice Baby...

We finally gave in and gave Easton rice cereal after church on Sunday. He was pretty mellow about the whole thing - he didn't love it but he didn't hate it either. I think he was disappointed it didn't taste like the popcorn he tried to munch on a few weeks ago...

Chop Chop

I was DONE with the post baby HANDFULS of HAIR falling out and LITTLE SWEATY HANDS PULLING what didn't fall out, so I did this - a little shorter than I had planned, but it's SO much easier - bye bye ponytails!
