Fall Part II

Halloween and Fall

Happy Halloween! We took the boys to trunk-or-treat Wednesday night. They did not stay in the stroller too long...they were only content as long as the stroller was moving! Weston, Preston. Camille, Reed (who was not the happiest camper at the time), and Braden Sweet little pig, monkey and giraffe
Priceless!!! I am not for sure which kid is going to like Santa the least. We are taking bets to see which one will cry first! All I can do is laugh at times like these because it makes for some good memories later on. Why is it impossible to get them to look at the camera?
I gave Braden an apple while I was changing his diaper to try to keep him still. I did not know he was going to eat it. He would start shaking his head because he wouldn't get enough of the apple in his mouth. I guess his front teeth work.

Fall Time

Two weeks ago, Ryan and I went to the church family retreat with some of our friends. We left the boys with my parents so we could spend some time with our friends. It was perfect weather and we had a really good time.
On Saturday morning, the guys went to play golf while we stayed and went to Bible classes..something is wrong with that picture. In their defense though, it was a planned activity with the church retreat:-) Ryan obviously took the picture below of his group: Zach Crawford, Josh Terry and Josh Story.

That afternoon, all of us couples went to the skeet shooting range. It was so much fun! Zach was cracking us up with his shooting attire. He reminds me of Elmer Fudd in this picture!!!
I was showing Martha Lynn how to load the gun and turn the safety off. I think this was her first time to shoot a gun.
One morning, I went downstairs to check on the laundry and I came back and found this. I guess that is what I get for letting Reed think that the can of puffs was a rattle. You live and you learn. Don't worry, I didn't let them eat them all even though that would have been easier than cleaning up their mess. Their faces just say "Guilty!"
I wish that you all could see these two in the bathtub. They absolutely love bath time! Its a good thing that we have tile in our bathroom because water ends up all over the floor from them splashing. People think that I am crazy for giving them a bath every night but if you could see the looks on their faces when they get in the water then you would too!
I am trying to get the boys used to having things on their head so they won't hate their Halloween costumes. So far, I am not succeeding for longer than a minute!
Right after I took the picture, Braden had yanked the towel off his head. We owe a huge thank you to the Calendine family for having our church class over for a cookout. They had everything that you could think of for, huge blowup obstacle course, fishing, and tons of good food.
We brought the boys bouncers so they could entertain themselves for a while. Reed was in the middle of a big bounce in this picture.
Martha Lynn and sweet Camille
Braden with Macy, his friend that is also a twin.
It got pretty cool that night so they had a big bonfire where we could roast marshmallows. I was glad I brought their sweaters. The next day Ryan and I went and bought them a fleece coat for the winter.
Ryan and I trying to stay warm...actually I think he was hot because he had been playing football with some of the guys.

Stay tuned for some more won't be long before you can see them in their cute Halloween costumes!!!
