Some October fun...

We have been busy busy busy this month. It was super fun - but I am super excited to move on to Christmas.
We got to see a lot of our favorite friend Boo- she came over and made some fun pumpkin wind socks with the kids. She quickly informed me that is is not a windsock but a pumpkin octopus, and that they are real because she has seen one. I will tell you you are a liar if you try to tell me there is any other kid on this planet with a better imagination then her :)

Here is my little princess in her Ariel costume. She had a super cute wig but refused to wear it!! She has the funniest little personality. She is such a lover but has started to tell you what she thinks - she told her brother"" sometimes you are really nice but then sometimes I really want to kick you!!" I think that about sums up there relationship!!

Arggg!! Boo was our little pirate!! She had the whole pirate lingo down, she told us all about her buried treasure and pirate ship. She is so funny!!!

Here is our scary swamp monster. I was so glad we could talk him into this costume- he has been begging me for months to be some kind of bloody monster with a saw in his neck. I said no way......he is already trying to break me down for next year.

Princess Camp

Me and my sister took the girls to Princess Camp. They had a blast!!

Elley loved the fairy horse!! She has been begging me to buy her a mini horse since we left ...

They went for a carriage ride. Brantley talked Prince Charmings ear off and when we got done with her ride she told him ," You are not a very good prince you didn't even tell me my dress was pretty!!"

Elleys favorite princess was Ariel. She was a little confused about why she did not look like a mermaid.. she told Ariel your dad is going to be so mad that you have legs!! Lol!!

Boo loves Cinderella.. she followed her around everywhere.

Another one in school...

Elley Belly is growing up TOOOO fast.... she wanted to go get her hair done and have "BIG GIRL" feather put in. She was so silly - she refused to talk to the hair dresser but she sat so still. She looks so cute with her little pink feathers...

This was a weird day ... I was not expecting her to be so excited. I was so glad she wanted to go but a little sad it was so easy for her to leave me... I know so selfish right!!

Our preschool countdown...

Elley has the same pre school teacher that Parker had. When we went to back to school night she showed us her wall of fame - there was 12 students pictures and Parker was one of them. I guess he made an impression on her :) I think he is part of the reason she did so well - he told her all about the fun stuff she would do in preschool. He told her " Mrs. Leeesa is so nice she will give you lots of hugs and kisses and give you bandaids when you get hurt." Thanks Park!! She was such a big girl - she hung up her backpack, found her name badge and went to play with her new friends. She has got this pre school thing down!! Love you Elley Belly!!

She is so big...

Elley has been trying to convince Chance and I that she is ready to drive the four wheeler all by herself. So this is her first time driving it - she was so brave. She cruised around for hours and cried when it was time to stop. She is such a tom boy - she has begged to "pracise" every day and is getting pretty good at that thing.

We tried to talk Brantley into trying but there was no way that was happening. For now she is content letting Uncle Chance take her for rides...

One cool 1st grader...

I totally underestimated how hard it would be to send the little man off to 1st grade. The night before as I was laying out his clothes I thought about the 7 years I have had with him and I wished I would have spent more time loving and hugging him. I seriously questioned everything. It was so hard.. am I crazy? Just say no so I feel better :)
I did not sleep that night .. just so worried that I was losing him.. I know he is 7!! I am totally out of control. When I dropped him off I thought ok so I just leave now and you take care of my son for 7 hours.. I am so not ok with this!! I tried really hard to stay calm and pretend like I was not battling with myself, I must have done a really bad job because he said '"Mom, am I ready for this? I don't think I am ready for this yet!!" I felt horrible!! I said "You are totally ready .. you are going to learn so many cool new things and make so many friends.. they are so lucky to have you in there class. I am just sad because I will miss you. but I guess now we will just have to cram more fun things into the time we have together after school!"
I love him beyond's so hard to let him go but pretty cool to watch who he is becoming.

Here he is.. he really wanted to wear these sunglasses on his first day.. me and Chance tried to explain to him that they are SAFETY glasses not SUN glasses but he was not having any of that..

Turning 7...

Yep.. it's happened. My son is 7!!
Here are some funny thing about Mr. Parker:
He loves girls.. he has started telling me when he thinks a girl is sexy... I am very disturbed by this.
He loves to swim.. and he is so good at it. He freaks his Aunt Loren out when he dives under and hold his breath.
He loves Wrestle mania.. he tries to wrestle anyone who will go for it
He is becoming such a good reader and is super good at math
He is obsessed with Michael Jackson music.. his favorite song is "Beat it"
He is a very passionate kid.. he cries when he hears about animals being hurt or people who don't have homes- he has passed this trait on to his sister.. when those sad commercials come on about homeless animals they both ball there eyes out.
He is a great big brother.. bossy but great!! He loves to be the one to teach Elley how to do something new.. but if she doesn't do it the way he told her then we have a BIG fight on our hands.
He is very observant.. he will be the first person to notice if you do your hair different or change the rug in your house
He is such a lover.. he loves his family so much and makes sure that you know it everyday!!!
He may be 7 but he will always be my little man..

three little monkeys....

These 2 are T-R-O-U-B-L-E!!!! They love each other so much -but they are so super competitive... its so fun to watch them grow into little ladies...
I was talking on the phone with Brantley the other night and she said this ," Linny - I need to tell you something really serious.. you need to get your stuff and come here now!!" When I told her I couldn't do that she said " Oh man I can't do this anymore !!" lol- I swear there is a little 16 year old trapped inside that body of hers!!

My little stud!! He loves to teach the girls how to do thins.. but he is a boy so chasing them is usually how it ends up!! He has a very big crush on this girl in his class.. he said its hard to decide who to play with at recess - his friends or this girl.. he told me it would be easier if girls "didn't talk so much and just played more!!"

Sassy Ms. Elley Belly!! She is too funny- but man is she feisty!! When she wants something she says"_ Mom its me your elley belly - I am your favorite girl.. remember ?! "
