The Gym And Halloween

I attempted kidCare at the gym this week with the boys. The first time was Monday and Teague walked right in with Alex. I spent the first twenty minutes waiting for someone to come get me and they didn’t. Today we tried it again. Teague cried as I left, but stopped after a few minutes…

We Have Words

Teague definitely understands most things we say. He will follow simple commands and point to an object/person we name. He has also added a few English words to his vocabulary. His first word was “bubble” and he said it on 10/15 at his hearing test (the lady used bubbles to distract him). Then came “woof…

Why We Minimize TV Watching

Alex has never watched much TV, for various reasons. One of the reasons is that he wants to talk about what he watches for hours and hours afterwards. He has questions about every minute detail and also wants to tell you everything that happened second by second. I don’t actually recommend you watch the video…

Handing Out Candy

I find the way our neighborhood handles Halloween very strange. We essentially have two trick or treating times – for different people. The Sunday afternoon before Halloween is for Milwaukee County – the kids are driven to our neighborhood by their parents. Then on the evening of Halloween we have trick or treating for the…

    I always thought 2 trick or treating times was sort of strange too, although in our old neighborhood, they changed up the route every year so that everyone wasn’t handing out candy 2 times per year – you only were handing out candy 2 times per year every third year with their system. In our current location, there is only one trick or treat and it is on Halloween night!

Pumpkin Carving Party

We hosted our 8th annual pumpkin carving party today and had a record number 29 people (not all pictured)! The older kids (meaning the 3’s and 4’s) were just old enough to run wild upstairs. Alex’s bed was a huge hit! The little kids stayed downstairs with the adults (and the food). It was great…

Halloween Festivities Begin

Wade worked hard to get Alex’s costume ready for today (the costume wasn’t as challenging as last year, but we have been crazy busy). We got out of the house for an early morning haircut and then met Riley for Trick or Treating at Yo Mama. We rushed home for an early lunch and nap…

Old Barn Find

My Mom and Wade made one last pass through my grandparents’ barn before the property was sold when we visited Paducah in July (see here). Among the items they salvaged, I was saved this basket. My Mom thinks it was made by my great grandfather (I think). I didn’t take a before picture, but the…

Zoo Time

We had a random warm day and decided a trip to the zoo was the perfect activity. Teague was content in his stroller (with snacks) while Abby and Alex ran wild.
