Halloween Shenanigans

 We were able to dress several times this year for Halloween!  The kids had a day at school to dress up like what they want to  be when they grow up and we have an engineer, mad scientist, and power ranger
Kids school also had a trunk or treat

 Then for Halloween night we were all Star Wars… fun note, I wore Leia hair all day.  Several high 5's and strange looks given at Wal-Mart :)

 We went to the Butlers house that night and used their neighborhood because it is hands down the best trick or treating neighborhood in the world…. The news came out last year because a house went a tad overboard on the walking dead theme…...

October Days

Savvy joined the Bruin Buddies club, which helps with the special education class at school.  She has read to the class and totally loved it.  We went to the Step-Up for down syndrome walk and it was wonderful.  We also saw a llama and Savvy lost her mind :)  
 For Dare week the kids dressed up for the red carpet one day and were ADORABLE

                               We also went to the park that day :)

Cohen's 9!

My brilliant, imaginative, sincere Cohen.  He fell in love with Harry Potter this year, still wants to be some kind of scientist when he grows up, learning jiu jitsu like a ninja and just such an amazing blessing to our family.  Cohen is the first to be ready every morning, the first to finish his chores (and complains the least about them:)  He works hard and plays harder.  Love you forever Cohen Blake

We had a few friends come over and all the boys slept in the treehouse!  They loved it.  Michael and Rhett camped at the bottom of the steps to the house and scared them a few times throughout the night.

 Bed heads.  They were hilarious when they came in, talking a mile a minute and telling me everything that happened.  Birthday #9 success!!!

Gulf Shores

We again had another amazing beach trip.  Bevvy came up with the genius idea to bring quarters and then pay the children to help with whatever her heart desired.  That cooler looks so far away "Savvy I'll give you a quarter for a drink" "Cohen I left my towel upstairs I'll give you two to go get it".  It was brilliant and several joined in on paying the kids and they made a fortune by the end of the week.  They were coming up with chores by themselves after the first day.  They also put a godiva chocolate on everyones pillow one day…. then the chocolates magically disappeared and Annabelle and Lila came down with chocolate smeared faces :)

Ann brought piƱata's.  Cohen inventoried his candy
We had a photographer come and the pics turned out adorable
              Christmas card ;)

Sweet Cassie got us tickets to see Adam Levine and he did not disappoint.  It was such a great concert and we had so much fun
 Favorite character day at school, Cohen is Harry Potter.  We let him read the first one this year and he FELL. IN. LOVE with it!  I told him that we would watch the movie when he finishes it and after we watched it he sat up and looked at me and said "THE BOOK IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE MOVIE!"  My heart soared, he then told me all about the parts that weren't in the movie but that should have been ;)  All anyone needs is an amazing book to get you hooked on reading.  He just finished the 3rd now :)

 Savvy and Caleb were Desperaux… We are reading it at night all together and it is taking us forever but it will be one of my favorites I'm sure.  I love the author so much, amazing writer!

                              Norah and I surprised MA for her birthday :)
                                                       Fun with cousins
this is totally totally unacceptable :)  Savvy is really trying to turn Norah into a razorback

Church Picnic

I love our annual church picnic… mainly because i love our church so much.  We have so many hilarious and amazing people and get us fed and water sports and its out of control.  We laughed so hard and I was sore the next day from running around on the water obstacle course

Schools Back

3, 3 of them are in school!! How did this happen…  The first day they went Norah and I just stared at each other all day… the house was so quiet and we missed them like crazy.  They are all doing wonderful and Caleb really likes kindergarten :)

 Norah bug is going to school twice a week.  One of those days I help out at the elementary school and eat lunch with the older 3 (its an hour of lunch time to eat with all 3) but I love it and love being able to help out their classes
