career day

Today at school was career day. As you can see, they dressed up like dad:) Awhile back I made them Preventive Pest Control work shirts. They haven't really worn them, so it was fun that they wanted to be like dad. Makayla wore a pair of Isaac's pants:) They even have flash lights on their belts like dad. Dad even drove them to school. How fun it that?!

preschool halloween party

Jackson's preschool group had a Halloween party for the Letter "H" this week. They were able to dress up. I'm not completely done with his Halloween costume and I didn't want it to get ruined, so he went through our Halloween box and wanted to be a doggy. He was so cute. He was acting like a dog all morning. If you all remember, he went for around for about a year or so crawling like a dog and acting like a dog (doctor's, grocery store, church, etc.)

Uncle J

Uncle Jason come to visit last week. It was really nice to have him visit. The kids loved it (even if Isaac couldn't remember his name) He kept calling Jason "Uncle James" Sorry Jason. I think he got it down before you left.

Jeremy and Jason went Bungee Jumping last Wed. Jason was trying to be all cool about it. Like he wasn't scared at all (what I heard is that they had to push him off and then he wet himself)

We took him to IHOP for the first time; it was momentous.

He was here for about 10 minutes before the toilet started over flowing so I'm sure the visit was memorable.

Let the Flood Gates Open!!!!!!!!

Yuck! Our Master bath toilet overflowed into our bathroom, closet, bedroom, hallway, laundry room, and garage. I can't believe how much damage one stopped up toilet can make. Yuck!

We had to borrow a neighbors wet vac and buy a new one to replace it after it stopped working. Jeremy took all the carpet out of our closet, and half our bed room, and I ruined all my towels:( Some of the hardwood, drywall, and carpet are going to need replacing. For now (three days) we have about 8 or 9 industrial fans going all day to dry up all the moisture. It's so loud and they're so big and in the way. Life is going to be crazy for a few weeks:(

sleeping arrangments

Since Tre's left, we haven't used his room. We still call it Tre's room. So, Jackson sleeps with Makayla (to be her protector from all things scary) and Isaac sleeps in Jackson's room. He's a little bummed that everyone else has someone to sleep with. However, no one wants to sleep with him because his energy level doesn't go down until around 10 or 10:30 :(

This is Jackson's best friend Bella. Jackson has begun to discover bugs and worms. On this particular day he discovered worms and Bella showed him how to cut them in half:) Yaaahhh, for boys who have girl friends to show them all kinds of gross things.

Isaac and Makayla on Picture day

Isaac dressed himself for picture day. He was so proud of himself. I didn't have the heart to tell him that church dress shoes shouldn't be worn with white athletic socks and shorts. Poor kid, he had no idea.
Doesn't Makayla look beautiful:)

SUPERMAN Jump'n in the Backyard!

We got out our Halloween stuff the other day. Jackson had a good time trying on costumes. He wants to be a hot air balloon. I'm not sure how that will turn out. But I think it's funny. It would be so much easier if my kids would just use the things I already have. My first mistake is asking them what they want to be. Makayla is going to be a southern belle zombie, and Isaac will be a ninja. I love Halloween!!!!
