Goodbye October

Two posts in one day....a record :)  

Since we were preoccupied here and there, and everywhere other than home in October, we had to whip up the easiest Halloween costumes.  

Some recyclables, spray paint, Keith's military patches and cardboard, we had ourselves some rocket guys and mama moon.  The boys had a BLAST running around saying "trick or treat, happy Halloween."  I had to constantly remind them to say their thank you's, instead of "next house mama".  They've been patient about their loot, having one special treat a day and they love to organize and show off their favorite things.  It's pretty cute.  Kaleb makes a lolly pop bouquet and AJ lines up the Hershey bars and kitkats in straight lines.

After the boys went to sleep Keith and I went to a Halloween party...right next door to enjoy the holiday adult style.  So goodbye October, we had a blast but are so very happy to be home, enjoying this crazy warm weather and gearing up for the next leg of our kitchen remodel in a few weeks.

Oh baby

I'm so behind posting lately!  Apologies.  Things have been rather busy and my brain is scattered.

Within the past month life has been much about babies.  3 little pumpkins, one who made her appearance a few weeks earlier than expected!  Sweet Zoe Emerald had an expected arrival the first week of November, where I had planned a mini vacation, away from the boys for the first time.  Since I had the pleasure of taking newborn photos, the trip couldn't be postponed, so the boys adventured to the farm with me.  The day before our trip I was lucky enough to have the day to myself, to share in a great baby shower with my girlfriend Megan and visit with another friend, who had a daughter 5.5 months back, and although I visited, never actually held, hugged, or kissed.  

Back to Kristen and baby Zoe:  It was such a wonderful visit and I got lost in nighttime snuggles!  Kaleb and Aiden vacuumed the house everyday, were VERY impressed with the happenings on the farm and were so happy when we finally let them hold little Zoe.  They were so gentle and Kman gave her a spontaneous kiss which melted my Mama heart.  Our photo shoot could not have been any more adorable, although Zoe did give Kristen the run around for most of the day first.  

We arrived back home just in time for a pumpkin carving party, another baby shower, and trick or treat at great grandmas house.  Our Halloween post up next!!
