While we were at Ben's parents house for his birthday, Brooklyn had me come out to the backyard to show me the new tricks she could do in the tree!
She was having such a
great time climbing,

She would swing out on this very small branch
and it would just drop her to the ground.
but every time she was ready to get out of the tree it was
that same branch she picked to get her out

It was so much fun taking picture of her having a blast in that tree

She is one cute little girl!

Happy birthday to my great husband...

Today was Ben's 27th birthday and it was a blast...
We went out to strikes bowling with his family,
we had never been out to the new bowling
alley and so this gave us a great excuse!
Auntie Kalynn and sweet Kelsea came to share in the fun

It was such a fun time hanging out with the family
and watching the kids show off their bowling skills.
Grandma Jan ended up winning one game
and uncle Joe won the other

We went back over to his parents house
for pizza, cake and playing outside.
Here Ben is opening some of his gifts
that Blake had helped pick out

Ben gave Blake 27 high fives for such a great gift choice :)
Blake had wanted us to get the new Batman legos game since it came out, so when he was asked by his grandma what his dad should get for his birthday he knew just what to say! Look how excited Ben is about the new game.
Ben's mom is always really good about including
the kids in our birthdays. She always gets something
for them above whatever she get for the actual birthday person.
Of course a great hug for being such a very thoughtful son!
Auntie K drew this for the birthday boy,
we have a very talented artiest in the family...
At the end of the night we went home and watch Walle
with Aunt Jeanette, Grandpa Kevin, Cameron, Mya, Dallas and the kids.
Happy Birthday Ben,
we sure had a blast celebrating you
on your special day...

The last game...

Last Saturday was our last soccer game of the year,
the team did such a great job playing their little hearts out.

We ended up getting spanked in the end
but it was still a very good game. Ben did a great
job coaching this season, we really did have an amazing team.
My friend Kacey and I have decided to start a fun little business, we are going to make tu-tu's and bracelets. We made a tu-tu for each of the girls that are sisters to the players. They turned out so stinkin cute!
Just some more fun pictures to look at...

Oldies but goodies

These are just a few of my favorite picture of my little family
(This is our kitty Smokie just after Ben got him for me)
This sweet little baby is our Blakey!
Only one day old!

These beautiful blue eyes belong to Brooklyn
At one month old
Our soft little Bella
At six weeks
Bella being such a big helper with her new little sister...
This big smile belongs to Bayleigh
At two and a half months

Just for fun...

This is one of my favorite outfits for Bayleigh.
She looks so serious in this picture,
I love the looks her sweet little faces gives me!
She is also wearing a very cute pink skirt but it's hidden by the car seat straps

Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat
smell my feet
give me something good to eat
if you don't
I don't care
I'll pull down your underwear!
So I know some people can't stand that little melody, but that was all I heard this October from all of the silly little kids I have in my life. Not to mention that my siblings, cousins and I use to sing it all the time, so it definitely felt right to include it in this blog!
Ben was helping Bella get her shoe back on, this happened the whole night.
(same with when Brooklyn wore this two years earlier)!
Kacey and I borrowed our boys stuff just for a second!
Bayleigh was done with all this!

Carving the pumpkins

Carving pumpkins happened a bit late
this year but we still got done.
(It was only the night before Halloween)
we had the kids do all their own carving
they did did such a great job
not one of them had any accidents
they really liked getting out all
the slimy pumpkin guts
All the pumpkins turned out so cute!
Each kid did their own design...

This was one of the best
years carving pumpkins,
our kids are starting to get old
enough to participate in these fun activities.
