This will be sort of a catch-up post - hope yall don't mind. There are so many things I didn't blog on time or when they happened that I want to remember. I get the ol' blog printed to a book each year so it is important to me to have this stuff documented somewhere.
So, here are more pictures from this fall.
(If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably seen the majority of these pictures.)
I gave in and let Mary Ella drive Sam to a birthday party. Luckily it was 3 houses down so it wasn't that big of a deal. Although she believes watching the road is optional. We will work on that.
Gage had a Curious George themed party and it was super fun.
This is last year on the day of Gage's birthday party, and then this year's picture of the two of them:
Sam in his AJ McCarron t-shirt before school one day.
Late night cereal snack.
World's messiest eater. Ever.
The two's are in full swing around here. As you can see.
Practicing some fine motor stuff with Sambo. He loved stringing beads on the pipe cleaners. He loves any activity like this; keeps him occupied for several minutes. He concentrates so hard.
And here's little Miss Rolls. The dumpling in all her glory. I love me a fluffy baby.
A few sewing projects that occurred in the wee hours of the morning.
Fun times building forts on the porch.
... and making more messes with the Messiest. Here's our spooky Halloween mansion.
Lots of Friday lunches at Chick Fil A. We'd eat and then I'd let them wear themselves out in the play area.
Went to Walmart a little too close to nap time one day. Which resulted in this:
Rainy days called for inside play. But we didn't mind.
It was a chance to brush up on our ja-nastics skills.
And drink Diet Coke.
This picture owns me. She looks like a Russian baby doll.
We introduced Sam to Tom Cruise and "Risky Business." Joking.
Mary Ella had school pictures made. I totally forgot it was picture day, being the super mom that I am.
So she rocked her Bama clothes and her high ponytail.
Don't you love the antique bicycle?
LifeTouch hasn't changed a bit.
We enjoyed some tricycle and stroller time,
playing with neighbors and pretending we didn't like them,
I introduced Sam to "The Sound of Music" and he is obsessed. His favorite song is "I Have Confidence" and he wants to watch that song over and over and over.
Spent some time with cousins,
(Emma Kate and Hudson are a month apart)
These two are the best of friends. Can't beat having a cousin to play with.
I enjoyed my mornings with this little one while the others were at school.
This is how she smiles for her daddy. Cheeser.
This is Mary Ella explaining to Sam why she didn't want him playing with her princess figurines...
And this was the picture that immediately followed: Sam running away with the Ariel figurine and Mary Ella melting.
We celebrated Charlotte's first birthday. Sweet precious baby. Can't believe she is ONE!
We made home made donut holes and they were gone in about 0.2 seconds.
Just canned biscuit dough deep fried in oil and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Yum.
A large roll of paper will occupy my children for hours on end. Mary Ella was drawing fairies and a treasure map, Sam was coloring "clues" and Emma Kate was eating the crayons. Win win.
Did I tell yall he has been banned from my new kitchen table? BANNED.
This one may follow in his footsteps.
Kitchen sink baths always follow spaghetti night.
We've had a fun-filled and action packed fall, as you can see.
Thanks for tolerating the overload of photos in this post.
Bring on the Christmas season!
