All Smiles

This boy is all smiles. Unless of course he's sleeping, which he also likes to do quite a bit. Please excuse the baby eczema! Poor little guy!

I made the kids these darling pillow cases today. I used THIS tutorial and it worked great and was very easy.

Trunk 'n Treat

For years we've been attending our church's Trunk 'n Treat. Every year it gets better and better. This year was no exception. The best part was the program which Eric wrote and stared in. He is such a talented writer and actor. The kids LOVED seeing him on stage. In one part of his skit he's looking for "Mr. Stanton." Eisley had seen the rehearsal and knew that Stanton was backstage. So when Eric said, "Where's Mr. Stanton," Eisley yells repeatedly, at the top of her lungs, "right dare, right dare!" It was adorable!
Speaking of adorable, take a look at this picture...

MOPS Halloween Party

We had a MOPS halloween party this morning. As I look through these pictures I realize it is the little things that make a fun day.

Fake teeth.
Simple games.
Tiger wearing rain boots.
And a little candy.

Jumping Contest

We had a little contest today to see who could jump the highest. I don't think I need to tell you who won. We continued adding blocks until they couldn't jump over them anymore.

Matching ice cream

When Eisley was born I made her a few 42x42 flannel blankets. They were perfect for swaddling, playing on, draping over the car seat, or almost anything. I loved these blankets. So of course I've made a few for Ender and have also given some away as gifts. Now one of my friends asked me to make some for her to give away as gifts.
Notice how Eisley's ice cream matches her outfit?

Eisley's 22 month phrases

I just had to document somewhere the cute things that Eisley has been saying these days.
  • "Read a book, this one!"
  • "Watch a movie, this one!"
  • "More please, chicken nuggets" (or insert anything else she may want)
  • "Why?" - all the time!
  • When I ask her why she says, "Betause...."
  • "Milky" for milk - I think this is a combo of Milk and please. Emmett used to say the same thing

Car Games
These are the games Eisley has invited to keep herself entertained in the car.
Game 1:
Eisley: Where'd Mommy go? (who is sitting right in front of her)
Mom/Dad: I don't know, where is Mommy?
Eisley: Right there!
She then does the same thing with every person in the car and even people not in the car, to which she will answer where she thinks they are, "home" or "work"...

Game 2:
Eisley: Mommy? mommy?
Mommy: Yes Eisley?
Eisley: I'm talkin to Emmett!
Eisley: Emmett?
Emmett: Yes, Eisley?
Eisley: I'm talkin to Ender
and this continues and continues....

Other cuteness in our home...
The kids have been coming out of their room together after I've put them to bed. It's really adorable. The situation goes something like this: They slowly walk into my bedroom hand in hand (or Emmett guiding Eisley in front of him). Emmett declares, "We have a question." Eisley says, "Is this your shirt?" pointing to my shirt. I can't help but chuckle.

Tonight Eisley opened the door of their room after bedtime, held out her diaper, threw it on the ground and said, "no tank tou." So, I went in there with one of those big huge bed protecting pads they use at the hospital (they sent me home with a few of these big square pads, along with a few gigantic maxi pads) and placed it under her. She most often wakes up dry, but I'm not yet willing to take the chance.

Cabin Weekend

We went to the cabin for the weekend.
My grandparents (father's parents) live nearby so we went to spend time with them.
Walking around the darling downtown.
And a trip to The Red Mill.
