Family pictures

We had our family pictures taken on Sunday and I tried to snap a few with my phone before our session. Again, no one likes to actually look at me. They all say "CHEEEEEESE" like they are in pain and look off at something else.
And in this next one, Connor is for real saying "I'm the only one that listens Mommy" while the other two are walking off.

Pumpkin Patch 2015

We made a trip to Carmichael's Pumpkin Patch on Saturday morning.  I told the kids that I wanted a few pictures of them before than ran off and played.
Apparently that was too much to ask!  It's was painfully hard to get one of all 3 of them looking at the same time.
And when they're over pictures, I get ones like this...
Cooper LOVED feeding the animals. He would feed them one little piece at a time.
And then Connor got bit by a camel.
And somehow I convinced Connor to ride a camel right after one just bit him.

Halloween 2015

This year, we are a Skeleton, a Puppy, and Cinderella.
Connor was not into taking pictures and was mad because the gloves on his costume didn't fit right, so he went inside.
Cooper panting like a dog.
Connor picked a skeleton after the Pottery Barn costume catalog came in the mail. I didn't get that exact one but he was dead set on being a skeleton. He said he liked it because it was scary.
Chloe originally said she wanted to be a cat after looking at the catalog. So after I found cat ears, a tail, a black leotard, and black tights, she changes her mind and wants to be a princess. At first, she wanted to be Rapunzel. No problem, because we already have a Rapunzel dress. Then she changed her mind and wanted to be Elsa. Nope. We did Elsa last year... it's time to LET IT GO.
 So I suggested Cinderella since I had already bought her the new Cinderella style dress and she agreed. But, the dress I already had was too big on her and kept falling of her shoulders. So again, I was on the hunt for yet another Cinderella costume and found this one from the Disney Store and the best part about it is that it lights up! She's so excited about going trick or treating in her light up dress!
After we took these pictures she informed me that we forgot to put her choker on.
Cooper is a puppy dog because he loves dogs. Anytime he sees a dog he sticks his tongue out and pants like a dog. It's the cutest thing. So I just pictured him panting like a dog the whole time he wears his costume. And I wanted something comfy for him.
Now I have to figure out how to fix Connor's gloves so we don't have a meltdown on Halloween!

Feeling better

Cooper finally got over his fever/cold and went back to school, just in time for me to get a call that Chloe had a fever. Last week was miserable and busy trying to keep everyone well and our normal activities and preparing for friends to come over on Saturday to watch football and decorate pumpkins.

We made a quick trip to the pumpkin patch to get a few pumpkins for everyone to paint.
Chloe woke up with a fever again on Saturday so she didn't get to participate. I'm saving a pumpkin for her though, so maybe we can get to it before Halloween is over.

Everyone was better by Sunday and we got to enjoy the day outside, playing in the dirt.

Playing Catch Up

We've started this fall off with a very full schedule!

We went to our local football homecoming game a few weeks ago.
Chloe watching the cheerleaders on the other side of the field.
Cooper dancing to the band.
My little football player and cheerleader. Maybe one day they will be out on that field together.

We celebrated the first day of October by decorating for Halloween and wearing our Halloween pajamas to bed!

We played hooky from work and school and took the twins to the Tulsa State Fair to watch Frozen on Ice.
This is the first year they were both tall enough to ride the rides!
Cooper had is first real cold that was possibly the flu. We stayed home together and he helped me get some work done.
Chloe and Betsey brought their friends Carsen and Sutton to bring a friend night at dance.
And we're only in the second week of October! I'm pretty sure we have plans every weekend through January!!!
