Random Pictures

I have been a neglectful blogger.  I admit, it has been a week since my last post.  The terrible 2's are zapping all of my energy and getting on the computer has not been my first priority.  This is why today's post will be a hodge podge of things that have been happening at my house.

Number 1 and to me the most exciting...

We have gotten rid of our high chairs!! We are all now sitting together at the table for meals.  It really has opened up the kitchen, not to mention one less "baby" item in the house. **smile**

Number 2... Olivia loves dressing up Reese in her old princess costumes! Reese seems to really like it too.

Number 3...  Pumpkin carving time!!  Who else out there LOVES to bake the pumpkin seeds after carving your pumpkin???  I do think the seeds are the best part - great snack. I was very apprehensive about the mess, but it turned out not to be so bad. The kids did love playing in the squishy guts of the pumpkins!

My pumpkin is on the left and Greg's pumpkin is on the right.

Number 4... Lunchtime!!  My friend Renee and I took all of the kids (her 3 and my 3) to lunch and I had to snap a picture of all the kids.  5 total high chairs!!  It's craziness!!

Number 5... Cute pics of Reese and Olivia.  Even when Reese is upset, she still is cute! Olivia just loves to pose for the camera.

Number 6... OK, lunchtime again!!  This time the kids all had their costumes on.  We went to lunch right after music class where they wore their Halloween costumes. Notice the HUGE iced teas in the picture.  This restaurant has the best sweet tea in the state!  Giant glasses plus free refills - now that will put anyone in a good mood. :)

Number 7...  Reese, at 2, is picking out her own clothes.  Today - it was big head Dora.  No matter what I did to sway her pick, she always went back to big head Dora. The girl sure does have a mind of her own.

Sounds like you had a great week, even though it was so busy! I love pumpkin seeds, but not enough to pull them out of that goopy mess, lol. My husband won't do it for me, so I go without.

Oh my goodness! I have a funny little tidbit for you about McAlister's Deli! We no longer have one here (some issue with $ for rent, I dunno...) BUT when we did, I personally became "friends" with the owner, Harry. When I was preggers with Jack I went like 4x+ a week! All for the California Veggie....Mmmmmm, oh and the SWEAT TEA! I'm so jealous you still have one!

Super cute pics!!!

Sounds like a busy week.

Hooray for no more highchairs. It is so nice to get all that baby stuff put away.

Course then you start yearning for another baby!
