Halloween is getting bigger and bigger every year. As the kids get older (and seem to multiply), the party gets bigger. Thank goodness for Athena and her willingness to be our home base. Girlfriend knows how to decorate for the holidays and her neighborhood is always a great one to go trick or treating in. Although, I am not sure the neighborhood feels the same way about us. Having 10-15 kids run up to your door, pound on it and then crowd around you holding up their Halloween bags can't be the funnest thing... or maybe it is!

Too Big Too Soon


 This is his new thing. I didn't think it would happen the first year so I wasn't prepared for it. I mean, he's 5. FIVE. And already he asks for us to drop him off instead of walk him to the gate. When we do walk him, he likes to walk in front of us and BEGS us to kiss him in the car before we get out. He will sometimes give us a high five, although you can see in this video he isn't having it.

I will admit, this does break my heart just a little bit. The only thing keeping me together is the fact that he can't get enough kisses and hugs when he is at home. So I hold onto my little bear and relish in the fact that he still loves to get love from us... at least when we aren't in front of his friends.

This kid melts me.

Exercising with Mama

It ain't easy having to exercise everyday, but it does make it more manageable when your kids wanna do it with you. :)
