Brooklyn has had a couple of school projects lately. The first was a diagram of a flower. Benson and Brooklyn worked on it quite a bit. She had a lot of fun working with Benson.
I told the kids that if they did a really good job drawing and coloring these Thanksgiving placemats that I would go get them laminated and we could keep them. They got to work and made 1 for each person that is going to be here for Thanksgiving. They turned out really cute.

Then in November Brooklyn had to make a Mayflower for school. We worked many many hours on it but it turned out really cute and Brooklyn was very proud of it. Jeremy is already excited for when he is in 3rd grade and gets to make his own.

Winter Wonderland

On Sunday afternoon it started to snow. I didn't think much of it but then the flakes started getting bigger and bigger. So as soon as we left the church doors the kids (and Benson) were having a snow ball fight with some friends. Then as soon as we got home they put on their "snow gear" and headed outside. It was really fun to get some snow. Now we just hope we get more!

end of soccer

The end of October I took Brooklyn and Jeremy to take some pictures with their soccer gear. It was a lot of fun. I loved them trying to show of their skills for the camera. This is the best picture of Brooklyn because you can tell she is trying really hard by the way her hands are torqued. If you have ever seen her play when she is really into it she does this with her hands. We have also started to notice Jeremy doing it and we realized it comes from Benson. He does something really funny with his hands when he is trying really hard. I love it and I am so glad I have a picture of Brooklyn doing it.

I love fall

I took some pictures of the kids today (actually looking at the clock I took them yesterday). Anyway, to check out more go to my photography blog or Ruby Red Photography on facebook. I love that I can get pictures of my kids whenever I want. Now I just need the weather to cooperate so I can do some Christmas outfit pictures.

I am finally getting around to posting for Halloween. I have tried a couple of other times but my computer was having issues. Anyway, the kids had a good time trick or treating this year. I love Halloween and walking around with the kids and seeing all the fun costumes of all the other little kids. I love the feeling of Halloween and fall kicking into high gear. I absolutely loved Ryan in his little dog costume. I bought him a pumpkin costume because we decided on the traditional costumes this year but I just couldn't resist how adorable he was in this.
I wish you could see his little tail wagging as he walked, adorable! Ryan loves his doggie costume too. He sleeps with it every night.

Jeremy and Brooklyn did theirs all by themselves.
Ryan had no problem getting in there and asking for candy.

The cutest witch I have ever seen!
We went with our friends the Larman's. The kids had fun going together.

Halloween cupcakes

Brooklyn was gone Friday and Saturday night for Halloween parties. I decided that we needed to have some fun of our own. So the boys and I made some Halloween cupcakes.

Ryan frosted part of one and thought it was time to eat. He did sit there and enjoy his cupcake and every once in a while would do a little more decorating.
Look at Jeremy's tongue, he is really concentrating!
Enjoying one of his creations.
more cupcakes
We had a good time and the were super yummy!
