Halloween To The Max

What a day! Wade stayed home today to help me out with child-care coordination. I needed to be at Teague’s school all day for his parade and party (somehow I am the only room mother for the class), and Alex gets off the bus an hour before I would get home. The party went great…

Costume Making

Wade is working hard on costumes. Alex wanted to be a robot for the third year so this year it’s a round trashcan and bucket.

Take Home Treat

We have so many Legos at this point that I’m not exactly sure what we have. I know the boys love the “jewels” and we have them in several colors. I also know one boy loves to take special pieces that they fight over and just put them in his pocket. I didn’t think too…
