A friendly game

This was a few nights ago and probably the last game of bare footed soccer for the season...







Timothy's strategy is to run full speed into his father and get tangled up in his legs until the ball comes out the other side.  :)


Happy Halloween 2014

Why hello, it has been awhile.  :)

We have been just a little busy and I kinda forgot about posting pictures for a few weeks there...I have some catching up to do!  First things first, it is halloween, so halloween pictures first.

Jared used his art degree today...


Timmy wanted to go to as a dinosaur this year!  It was a good thing that I made his costume pieces that fit over his coat, because it was 35 degrees when we drove past the bank when we started and it was 29 degrees when we drove home.  Brrr!


I found tutorials to make the hat and tail (here and here if you want to make them for your own dinosaur).  I made little feet to strap on over his shoes (he specifically requested stomping feet) but he ended up not wanting to wear them.


Chasing daddy...

Tasty Treat

With cooler weather here, at least for a few days, Timothy got his first taste of hot cocoa.  




He approved.  :)



And then got silly.  Gotta love sugaring up a kid right before bedtime and then putting them in front of a camera!

This And That

A few things going on at our house these past couple of weeks:  

They finally came through and chip sealed our side street, so we are done with living on a dirt road, which means I am no longer dusting my house 3 times a week.  Timothy was inthralled by the process.  :)





Butterfly #8:


Timothy and his favorite reading buddy (no, he doesn't read the words, just the pictures)


A little sewing, more on this later (I am redoing the green letters so they are higher and bigger on the pillow)


Smiles :)


Butterfly #9:


Some teeny tiny sewing, SO MUCH FUN!  There will be more of this coming this fall!


Butterfly #10:  (the last one, for real this time!)


Tomato sauce casualty - my first broken jar in the canner (that jar in the middle was empty, I had it in there to keep the four full ones from walking around the pot).  What a mess!  Boo!


And because it is Thursday night, a flashback to 3 years ago when Timothy was around 9 months.  HE WAS SO STINKING CUTE!  I just want to pinch those cheeks!  :)
