Catch up

I've been so busy it seems all I post is catch ups! Well here they are:

Cassiah is now 6 months, so we started solids. Well we've tried, she won't eat them! Her tongue is used to breastfeeding, and it just kicks out the food. All of it! Then after about 2 bites she purses her lips together and will NOT open her mouth! Stuborn little girl. I hope she realizes she can't have Mommy Milk for the rest of her life!
Cassiah enjoys the walker on our laminate flooring. She cruises around so easy but it's not so soft when it comes to play time on the floor. She's now rolling all over and doesn't stay on the blanket very well. Anyways, she likes to "help" with dishes! Although luckily she pushes it closed with her tray as she gets closer, so luckily she can't reach, but she sure tries!

This is as far and she can get and as much as she can reach!

Every Friday till the end of the year (2009) is "Crazy ______ Day", well today was Crazy Hair Day. Garrick's is blue with pink spots and then a blue dot in the middle. He thought he was pretty cool!

Aleksia was pink with the tips of her 3 ponies purple!

So Trestin goes potty in the toilet now (diapers only at night) so we bought him a fish too and 3 little snails, for a grand total of $0.76!!! Sometimes my kids are cheap to bribe! Well Bolt is adjusting to the water, and is 1/4-1/3 the size of Ariel and Buzz Lightyear! Luckily they didn't think he was food and eat him....yet!

Than plotting out his pumpkin design as we carved pumpkins for FHE.

Yeah, he scooped his own goo and didn't "puke" this year!

Aleksia grabbing out the goo

Wasn't too happy that Dad smeared goo on his tummy!

I was hoping to have her sit in the pumpkin for a cute Anne Gettes type picture, but no luck. So she just stood since she didn't fit!

The finished products. Daddy's "puking," Trestin's, Mommy's, Cassiah's, Garrick's, and Aleksia's

The pumpkins out on the front porch with our couple other Halloween decorations!

Cassiah in a so cute outfit that Aleksia wore too. It's almost too small, so we had to get a pic quick!

Garrick putting jello on his cupcakes for school. The idea was that the jello would soak through and create orange blobs, but it didn't work so good! Oh well, he had fun using a syringe and squirting jello onto the cupcakes!

So I was lazy and recycled a costume for Cassiah too! She was Tinkerbell, that I made for Aleksia's first halloween when they where Peter Pan and Tinkerbell. Her favorite part was eating the dress!

Robin and Tink before our little halloween party. Due to conferences Aleksia didn't get a Halloween party and get to wear her costume to school, so she had some of her K friends over and their at home siblings over for a little party!

The "quickly thrown together" pinata. Alissa remember when we made a pinata with Hillary and Elis? Fun times! Everytime we make one I think back...... ah memories!

Our eye ball cupcakes! Garrick made some of these for his party at school too.

Soup cans covered in halloween paper held the candy corn and chocolate covered pretzels (idea from Tennille's reception. Kudos to your Mom for making that many, all I can say is WOW!!!)

Kids at the party; Buzzlight Year-Zane, Mario-Lance, Wonder Woman-Aleksia, Batman-Roman, Robin-Trestin, Dorothy-Olivia, Gandolf-Trevor, Little Red Riding Hood-Lucy, and hiding is Flower-Gwen, Bumble Bee-Jeannie, and Snow White-Tatum. Here they are coloring their pumpkins and BINGO boards.
Picking up all the candy after the pinata was thrown on the ground by Trevor since it broke off the hanger that was holding it attached to the rope. Oh well, they got candy and that's all they care about!

Kathleen brought her parachute and had some fun with the kids!

One pooped out little Tink! Too much partying for her!

Cassiah in her pumpking shirt chillin' on the couch!

Trestin tried on Garrick's old Peter Pan costume. It was alittle short, but otherwise fit. Yeah, more dress up clothes! He wore it all yesterday; while my Activity Day Girls where here, to Garrick's B-Ball practice....

At the Truck-or-Treat at church, not many trick-or-treating pics since I had to work all weekend!

One tuckered out little girl from the Trunk-or-Treat

Yesterday for ADG we made pumpkin pies! I love these girls!!! I have so much fun working with them! We had 11 come yesterday, that include 3 friends!

So much going on at your house. I look good in my picture, too bad you can't really tell it is me though. We should get a good group picture one of these days.

Which reminds me, is there a theme at all for the Daddy daughter date night??

Alissa said...

Cassiah is standing??? Wow!

Cute pictures. Your pinata is way cuter than the ones we ever made were. Ah, memories...crazy days...

Glad you're all doing well!

Tennille and Nathaniel said...

You really are the do-it-all Mom! Your kids sure are lucky. Those costumes are well as the crafts and treats. I wish we lived closer so I could have you help me out with my craftiness (or lack thereof!)
