My feet are cold.

I am sitting here in the waiting room of the dentist office (Another story for another post) and thinking "my feet are cold." Do you know what that means...Its officially fall! I am ecstatic, not just happy or excited... Ecstatic! I love everything fall.

Then and now.

I remember seeing this movie in theaters when i was a kid. Now i am sitting here watching it with my babies in 3D. Crazy. i was thinking that if someone told me when i was 15 that i would see lion king in 3D (Or any movie for that matter) with my kids in the theater i don't know if i would have believed them. Life is fun!

state fair

JARED IS THE BEST HUSBAND IN THE WHOLE WORLD. My blog is the best way i can think to shout that from the roof tops. With the exception of few occasions, he is the most considerate and thoughtful man I have ever met. I am sad to report that I am not sure that I would have done this for him.
(Editors Note: Jared hates, nay, despises country music.) Jared surprised me with tickets to see THE BAND PERRY at the state fair. I was giddy for days in excitement. And it was as awesome as I expected. We didn't have the best seats, and it was crowded so we moved to the way back where no one was sitting and we just sat, all alone, his arm around me while I belted my lungs out singing my favorite songs. BEST DATE EVER!!!! 
Here is how it went...
Scary upside down ride. 


Jared won a prize playing ski ball. And then he took it home for kem kem. See I told you he is considerate.

Wait did I already say... BEST DATE EVER!

Leaving the nest...sort of.

I took this pic of kman while camping this weekend. I thought it was all too appropriate for this post.  I couldn't help but be in awe of the contrast of this little dude in his pj's and the great big world around him. Didn't even make the connection that a few days later I would be throwing him into the big world. 

Incase you need to be brought up to speed... Kman started preschool today. I am very excited for him, and he is very excited for it, but I may or may not have choked up a little. (my hubby didnt even notice so that is how little.)

I love this little man and I am so excited for him to start learning and growing. I am grateful for people who are trained to help him do that. I am also grateful for the big fat 2 and a half hour break from his CRAZINESS each day.

When he came out of the preschool his teacher made a point to tell me that he demanded his juice right at the beginning and then later demanded his snack promptly. I told the teacher that he is very strong willed, she replied "so am I." Hopefully this means he will learn some patience and respect. I had no idea he was so bossy.
I LOVE YOU kman. Just remember who you are, OK!

"Look mom I drew me!"

My favorite part is the line above the eyes. He said it is his forehead. LOL.

Watch out, here she comes.

She is walking. 

My baby girls is walking... well, very very close to walking. I cannot believe it, she is getting so big, so fast. I am going to miss all of this one day I just know it.

"the bug got me."

We were playing at the river tonight and kroten found a shovel and was digging in the dirt. All of a sudden he looked at me and said "the bug got me."  he was fine like nothing happened and two seconds later started bawling. I took off his shirt and sure enough there it was, a big welt. My poor baby cried and screamed. It still hurt at bed time. :(
