November Already?


I guess it must be so. Christmas music is playing on the television. Baseball's over, hallelujah. But what the heck? November?

In a few short days, I'll be 26. I have a hard time with birthdays. I don't often like to remember that I am getting older. I look at my children, and they're getting older every day. They're different, changing, every stinking day. Gabe? He's talking a lot more. He has also been waking up at 5 am. That's joyful, let me tell you. He loves to scream from his crib, "Maaaaaaaaaaaa. Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaa." or sometimes, "Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar. Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar." It's cute and annoying all at the same time. I'll be honest, and tell you I like it when he's yelling Bar...(pronounced like Bear/Bare)because that means he doesn't want me!

Julian is constantly sounding out words. He loves to read books and is always asking, "Mommy what turtle start with? T-T-T-, turtle, T!!!!" It's cute. It's crazy how big he's getting. He's like a full blown kid.

Halloween was fun. The boys were dressed as Mario and Luigi. Julian decided months ago that's what he wanted to be. I was excited because it was easy! And they match. Those that know me, know I LOVE matching!

They're at an interesting age. A very uncooperative age. So the pictures I have are funny, and only one is looking.

Lil Luigi

Mario-who wasn't down with the moustache

Mario Bowls

I've read a lot of people that eat chili or soup on Halloween. That's a really fun tradition, we have one of our own. It's called the Lazy Mom's Halloween Tradiation

Papa Murphy's Pumpkin Pizza. I love Papa Murphy's and I'm so happy the new Waukee Papa Murphy's is open! However I didn't realize that that one was open and drove to the West Des Moines one for this pizza. Totally worth it though.

I got a haircut. I went to the Aveda institute. It was amazing. She did an excellent job, and made my bangs, or 'fringe' perfect.

It's going to be Christmas before we know it. Julian's already begging to put up the Christmas tree. We'll see how long we can hold him off!
