Halloween Fun

My boys put on their costumes at 8:30 this morning! Vampire Jack, Snake Eyes Luke, and Ninja Bowen
This year has been really fun since the boys are getting older and can participate in the festivities! They couldn't wait to carve the pumpkin this year. Andrew wanted to buy some decorations for our house so that was cool for the boys too. Kayla and Hannah helped us too.

I was proud of my carving skills..Usually Ben does most of the carving! We were going to do it on Thursday but we got home way to late from the ball field and Ben left to go hunting so Mama and the boys took care of the pumpkin. Cool Cat that the boys picked out.

Bowen did this all by his self! He was in the playroom and came up with a Spidey glove and a Knight mask! He cracks me up...

Luke, Jack, Kayla, Bowen, and Hannah

Master goop~getter outer..Andrew

Sisters~ Kayla and Hannah
Go Andrew!

Jack separating seeds for roasting{that no one ended up liking!}

Luke playing with the insides!

Bowen adores Kayla and Hannah...and I am pretty sure they feel the same way about him!

Pam tells me that when they babysit for me the girls fight over who will take care of sweet! They are gonna be GREAT Mamas one day!

I love the look on Jack's face

Kids watching me cut er' open

They were all so good about letting me get it all ready to clean out...very patient..write it down!!

praying for stellan

Stellan is back in PICU with SVT. Please join me in praying for this almost Birthday Boy who will be turning 1 tomorrow. He has been doing soooo well and then out of nowhere last night he was really ill from his rapid heart rate and his Mama Jennifer had to take him by ambulance to the hospital. He was doing better today and then he went back into SVT. If you would like visit MckMama's blog to stay updated. Get better precious Stellan~ much love and blessings...

I am not in denial about my baby getting big that I still let him have a bottle and paci. He is not over 2 yrs. old and almost potty trained but still a baby! nope, not me!

I do not have a little sister who is in High School and almost the age I was when she was born...that does not make me feel old at ALL!! nope, not me!

My boys{luke} do not torture me with their homework on a regular basis that it makes me want to pull my hair out....I do not end up practically cussing to myself that he has homework on a nightly basis..nope, not me!

jack and his friends

Today Bowen and I went to eat lunch with Jack. We got there a little early so Bowen could play in the gym with Jack and all his classmates. Jack loves having his little brother and Mama at school with him. He especially loves showing off Bowen. Bowen thinks he is a big kid too so he fits right in. Here are some pictures I took today when we went for a visit.

Rain, Rain, Go Away

It has been raining for weeks now here in Georgia. It has been raining soooo much that Lake Lanier is full for the first time in like 5 years!! It is crazy how it can go from a drought and water restrictions to people's homes being flooded all over the state and roads and bridges being washed out. The boys have hardly been able to go to baseball practice or games from all the rain. We are supposed to have games today and it is raining AGAIN! It wasn't supposed to rain today {according to the weather reports} Hopefully we will have more sunshine sooner than later...for my sanity and my kids~ having 4 boys cooped up in a house can get a little CrAzY sometimes!!
But thank goodness there are indoor playgrounds!!

Not Me! Monday

my handsome boys and me

hilary's sling fabric

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by mckmama over at So head on over to check out a ton of others admitting to things they would maybe rather not be.. like laughing at your child when they trip and fall, or forgetting to feed your child a meal, or eating chips and salsa for 2 nights in a row for dinner! Let's get to it ya'll!

I was not totally psyched when my blog/FaceBook buddy Hilary {mckmama's sister} asked me to make a sling for her and her baby girl...and I was not also so thrilled to talk to her on the phone...I am not that silly that I would be overjoyed to talk on the phone to one of my blog friends for the first time...Nope, Not Me!

I do not dread turning the big 3~0 next month...I remember when I thought 30 was old.....gReAt...Nope, Not Me!

My boys are not the cutest boys on the planet and I do not love them to pieces and to the moon and back...nope, not me!

Rebecca and I met up at McDonald's to let the kids raise cain at the Playplace! We had 10 boys and only 2 Mamas! I made sure I got a group shot of all these handsome boys we were sooooo blessed with! Cute aren't they?! People always look at us like we are crazy! Have people never seen a bunch of boys before?! Yes, they can be loud and such...but come on people! Hope you enjoy these precious pictures of all these boys!
