NaKEd PuMpKiNs, CoSTumes, HaLLowEEn tRain & PiRatEs

Painting pumpkins.
It is a tradition in our house. Cleaning, scrubbing, Papa carves, and they get stripped down for naked pumpkin painting. There's a little bit of eating & wearing paint too:).

Halloween Train.
The kids love, love, love this. We've done it 2 years now & it's FREE & so much fun! They all wanted to go again! Morgan & Sam cried when we left & Noah talked about the Halloween train for days:). And the pictures taken at the end of that night...hilarious & PRICELESS:).

School Costume PARTAYS!
Noah was so excited to wear his Iron Man to pre-school. He said for days after, "I wore my iron man, huh mama. I get to wear it tomorrow huh." Asking again & again to wear it to school. And Morgan at school when I went to visit, cried everytime she saw me & the camera because I wouldn't give it to her. Silly, moody girls:). And Sam was just having fun with the MaMa.

And Trick or Treating...
It was cold & raining like crazy! We went to about 5 houses & then took them to Pirate Island for dinner & games in their costumes. It was super fun & the kiddos had a blast!

Happy Belated HaLLowEEn everyone:)!

One of MY Favorite Things

Betos People. Betos. Well, Rancheritos now.
Super Nachos.
2 pounds, yes i weighed them...
of homemade, chips, guacamole, pico, refried beans, steak upon steak,
& the most fattening sour cream out there.
Whenever i'm stressed or wanting to pig out or just feel like it.
It is a great bargaining chip in my house too.
I LOVE YOU my delicious friend.

Oh, and their carne asada tacos & fish tacos ain't bad either:).

Boys Will Be Boys

This little wrestling mania has been happening quite frequently at our house now.
What the years to come will bring when their total weight together
now is less than a quarter of what it will be:).

Oh what will my house look like at that point??!
They sure are cute & fun!
Especially when they're sleeping:).

This Is Just For You Isaac...

because we are in Maryland visiting my family, and our little Sam Sam decided to start walking! He has been walking now for about 1 and 1/2 weeks. He is so dang cute & very talented!

Love you Isaac! We CANNOT wait to see you on Saturday:)!

8 YEARS...& Still Counting:)

On June 29th, Isaac & I celebrated our 8th anniversary!

Our wonderful friends watched our kiddos so we could go out to lunch & to the movies! Thank you James & Cami! Then we all had a bbq for dinner & playing at the pool. So fun:).

I am so extremely blessed to have Isaac in my life. So lucky that he chose me. During the course of those 8 years, our marriage has truly been tested. Some would say that we've had more than our fair share of trials. All I know that the direction that our life has taken together, has shown me that we can make it through anything. Isaac, I love you more every day. You are an amazing husband, father, & friend.

A thank you is not sufficient, but thanks for chosing me to be forever yours. I love you with all my heart!

Happy belated hun!

It was so FUN to watch...
Getting ready to start.
The cutest bumblebee around.

She is totally doing the motions & singing it right now as I'm playing the little clips. So sweet!

Cheerio Success

I love these pictures. They were taken in March. Sam is learning how to feed himself for the 1st time.

Mama gave him a taste of cheerio.
Investigating how to grasp & pick it up himself.
Tasting the reward.

I did it myself mama:).

I love, love, love that face:).!

Noah's 3rd B-Day Party

Noah's 3rd birthday party was so much fun! We couldn't resist ourselves when I found this bounce house with his favorite thing in the world on it...CARS!

This showed up during breakfast at about 9 a.m.
And this was the reaction...

That reaction was priceless!

This is Noah showing us that new Cars shirt he picked out for his bday.
He loves that shirt.
I had to wash it lots and let him wear it about 4 times that week:).

Some neighborhood buds.

Sam giving us his cheese face.
That also includes snorts:).

Morgan investigating the goodies.

Our great friends the Grahams.

Noah was supposed to be smiling & showing me his Lightening McQueen,
I got him showing me his cars instead:).
This is Noah 95% of the time he's in hand.
Blowing out his candles.
I know, my cake is a little bit sad, but like my sweet
friends there said, he'll know who it is & that's
all that matters;).

Abby being cute with Sam:).


Noah enjoying his presents.
I put the wrong pic on here, but the one I
had wanted to put up had Noah holding all the gifts
he had already opened & trying to figure
how to open the next w/out putting the others down.
Mostly cars of course.
Yes, those are tears.
I made him sit still for a picture.
We gave Noah a hotwheels big boy bike for his birthday.
"Is that NoNo's bike. Whoooa. I gike it!"
He really is so good at riding it. From just about the moment he got on!
...with training wheels of course.
Also, the adults had so much fun on the bounce house! It was awesome!
We ran timed obstacle courses at the end. I soooo wish I had pictures of that!
Thank you to all of our family & friends that came to play with us on Noah's 3rd
birthday! He had SO MUCH FUN! Thank you for all of his sweet goodies too!
Happy 3rd birthday Mister NoNo!
Love you tons!

Three years ago today, we had our 1st sweet boy. He was 7 lbs 11 oz and 20.5 inches long. I was sick all 9 months I was pregnant with him & decided to have my 2nd c-section 2 weeks before his due date. I was having panic attacks & stress issues at the end. Being my 1st pregnancy after Morgan Mae.

Noah was an awful baby his 1st almost 5 months. Then he became the sweetest little monkey & SO MUCH FUN! He is still that today....most of the time, now that he's 3 & has this little attitude & all:) Here are some fun pics of our sweet boy over the past 3 years:)...

3rd Birthday Morning:)
Noah absolutely loves cars! I mean the boy always has at least 2 in his hand, if not 5 or 6! He also loooves his sister. He gets so excited everytime she gets home from school! He runs out to the bus & jumps up & down & gives her hugs as soon as the wheelchair lift hits the ground. I can't wait to see how protective he is of her in the future. Noah has been loving Sam since he started realizing he's going to be a playmate/trouble maker too:)! They have already starting wrestling on the ground. Well, Noah has anyways:) Noah never, ever, ever stops moving. Unless, it is a movie he really likes:). He of course loooves the movie "Cars" but "Up" and the "Toy Story" movies aren't so bad either:).
Noah is very much 100% CRAZY BOY. I am so glad that he is ours forever:).
Also, I can't forget how much he loves his "B". Especially the white "B". His blanket. Noah NEEDS it to sleep. He also still thinks Mama & Papa are still awesome...which rocks! And he still loves his hugs & snuggles;).
Happy 3rd Birthday Crazy No No!!!!
We love you soooooooo much!
