Sweet Tooth

Dress the kid up as an ice cream cone and he automatically develops a sweet tooth!
To be honest...he gets it from me. :)

This is Talon on Halloween night...trying to eat a sucker. I know, I'm terrible. He was tired, cold, crabby - and grabbing for my sucker! So I let him have it. Just for a second, I thought.

Yeah right! I took it away a few times and he got very cross! :)

This is Talon after I took it away for good.

Our Adventures of Halloween

I'm telling you right now...I only do it for the treats! Seriously!
Here's Conductor Simon. He wore this train engineer outfit for his party at school. His first holiday party without me! We were totally late and I forgot to take the picture before we put on his jacket and backpack. :) Hey, at least I have a picture, right?
My boys. Simon wanted to be a giraffe for trick or treating. Ben is a frog. And Talon is an ice cream cone. I'm Talon posing??? I just noticed that! Cutie.
Talon the Ice Cream Cone. His hat is a cherry! This picture was taken before this cute little cherry hat fell of of his cute big head in the middle of the street...a busy street! And also before he slid out of the stroller and bumped his nose. I had to hold him the rest of the way. :(

Almost done. Inside I was screaming...."someone please take me home. i hate this!!!" Jon wasn't able to come with me, so I was the only adult with all 3 of the kids. Ben wanted to go inside everyone's house. Or hit their pumpkins. Or take their watering can. Simon was great. He just wanted to get to the next house!

By the way, Jon was busy with the new dishwasher installers!!!! Good excuse! :) Not fun for me, but good excuse! Well worth it!

Paintin' Pumpkins

Here are the boys painting their pumpkins a few weeks ago. They had so much fun.

We got paint on the table, their clothes and the wall. Washable paint is the BEST!
Talon was happy just playing with the paint bottles.

3 Boys in the Bath

This is Talon's first time in the bath with Simon AND Bennett, at the same time. I've done it before with one or the other. It wasn't easy, but hey, they were all clean at the same time. Gotta love that!
Talon's hair is growing into a natural mohawk. He must get that from Jon. :)

He loves sitting in his seat.

He loves chewing on the bobble head guy.

He loves this squirty star.

He loves his brothers.

He just loves the bath...finally!

Published Love

Simon is quoted in the Fall issue of our church newsletter...

I thought you'd like to see it.

How cool is Ryan Donnelly's answer? I hope my boys say that when they're 12!

Yes, We're Still Here!!!

Okay, before I post Halloween, I'm just want to post a few random pics of Talon.

Here's Talon at Owen's cowboy birthday party.

Talon with my half-brother, Jake. I think Talon looks a lot like Jacob. I think I'm the only one though...what do you think?

Talon with Chloe. He LOVES her.
Here's another one of him kissing her cheek. Soooo cute!
