Fun in the Fall

No funny stories or amusing commentary, just pictures of the kids enjoying fall activities.

THREE CEDARS (on a warm, dry day)

ERWINS (on a colder, wetter day)

Umm . . . Excuse Me?

It's never good to be going through your friend's pictures
on-line and find something like this!

Busted!  I would like to think that Noah is the bad influence, but I know better!  I'm pretty sure the ring leader is wearing yellow.

5 Silly Monkeys

So yesterday I was goofing around with Owen & I kept calling him different animals.  He was getting frustrated that I wasn't calling him "Owen" so he looks at me and screams
"I'M NOT AN ANIMAL.  I'M A PER-SON!!"  I about peed my pants laughing . . . fast forward to the evening when I'm going through the last several months of pictures, getting ready for a big order.  I came across this series of photos from the farm back in May.  We were trying to get a nice picture of the 5 boys all sitting together.  It was seriously like trying to tame 5 monkeys all at the same time!  Enjoy the commentary.

Justin: "YES! I'm by Ben"
Ben: "Seriously, I can't get away from this kid.  His behavior is horrible."
Adam: "If I fall, how many stitches will I need this time?"
No kids looking at the camera.


Justin:  "I'll pretend to be good."
Ben:  "Mom? Dad? Help?"
Adam: "This guy could totally catch me if I fall"
Again no one looking at the camera

Owen:  "I can't watch"
Ben: "Uh-oh here it comes"
Adam: "The cement looks harder than the coffee table.  I shouldn't risk it."

Justin: "I have a question, why did I get moved?"
Ben: "This guy looks ok.  He hasn't hit me yet."
Still no one looking

Justin:  "That's ok, I'll just torment my brother"
Ben:  "Uh-oh that green shirt guy is raising his hand now"
Adam & Noah half looking

Justin:  "Got his ear"
Ben:  Super happy with his seat now, green shirt boy is harmless
1 or 2 kids looking, only 1 smile so far

Owen:  "MOM!"
3 of 5 looking, 2 smiles, might be as good as it gets!

1st Birthday Cake

Justin turned 1!!!  Sadly, most of the pictures from his birthday party were taken by other people.  I do have the cake pictures though.  And when it comes to a 1st birthday all anyone cares about it the cake pictures.  Enjoy!

Owen 4th Birthday Party

It's Carnival Time!  We had a backyard carnival for Owen's birthday this year.  It was really fun to have his first "friends" party.  I think the kids had a great time.

Birthday boy ready to party!

We had several games for the kids to play.  There was pony rides . . .

Bean Bag Toss . . .
and Potatoe sack races.


Happy Birthday to You!  Make a wish.

#1 Reason I Don't Update My Blog

My updates have been scarce, I realize.  I really would love to post photos and comments from our fun-filled last 2 months.  However, these days all my time is taken up by this one!  He is on the go & needs to be watched like a hawk 100% of the time.

This is the boy who pulled out Owen's bottom drawer just enough so he could stand on it & try to climb up on top of the dresser.

This is the boy who was trying to pull the outlet covers off . . . . with his mouth!!

This is the boy who will push his big truck over to the stairs, try to stand on it & boost himself over the safety gate.

These are the brothers, who together will give me gray hair very soon but who keep me smiling all day!

Little Guy

Look at my teeth!

Yep, he's Jon's son.  Jon always squints when he smiles.
