One for now...


You didn't think we forgot about our annual jib jab did you? We almost did a Halloween one, but now you have to pay for the new ones, so went another way.

I thought it was only fitting that we include Brandon.

Biggest Loser Week 4

Last week lost 1 pound (total 5 lbs)
Total 3.05%

I was a bit disappointed with only 1 pound, because I worked really hard last week. I even worked out Saturday which I rarely do. But I am happy I lost something. Baby steps, right?

Pictures of Lyla?
Yes, please.

Lyla is so smiley in the morning...the other morning I had her on the couch and when I looked up and said "Hi Lyla" she broke out into the hugest grin! ---I seriously stopped what I was doing and started kissing her bald head and chubby cheeks about a million times. Even now I am looking at her in her swing and I just want to cry I love her so much!

Addie is my little helper in the kitchen. Here she is helping make some candy corn pudding. She loves it.

 The other day for lunch I made the kids a mummy lunch. I saw this idea for the juice box on pinterest, but I didn't have white electrical tape so I used streamers instead. And I also didn't have googly eyes (hence the ghetto homemade eyeballs).
 Mummy Pizzas
I'm sorry, but using string cheese does not a good pizza make.
The kids aren't big pancake eaters, but throw a couple chocolate chips in them and call them ghosts and they will eat them up!

Last Wednesday Lyla rolled over for the first time. I didn't get a picture...but this was after it happened.
 There is something about when your baby wears real pants for the first time that makes them seem so much older. She is almost 4 months!
She has been a dream baby. Just about every day either Jared or I will say "She is the best baby!" Now I don't know if it is because she is our third and we are way more laid back. Or maybe she just seems amazing because lately Devin and Adalynn have been giving us a run for our money. But I think she really has been easy. She rarely cries, she takes a pacifier (but she also doesn't need one 24/7 to keep her happy), she sleeps really well--some nights she sleeps through the night but most nights we have one feeding. She doesn't mind the car seat which is nice since we are in and out of it all day long. When I was pregnant with her I probably said at least once a day "This baby is our last!" (And when I was sick I probably said it at least 20 times a day). But she has been so wonderful there is no way she is our last (unless she is a rotten toddler--I may have to rethink this in a few years).

Morning Snuggles

Holding and snuggling with Lyla is pretty much how we start the morning around here.

We LOVE it. Lyla...sometimes not so much.

Baby Yoda


Halloween and Play Group

I really like Halloween. Not so much the bloody, scary, part though. And thanks to Pinterest (one of the greatest inventions ever!) I have found so many cute things I want to do with the kids.

Here are a few things we did to decorate.

 I printed a new subway art--
I also made this banner 

I have photos from past Halloweens on our bookshelves and I made some fabric pumpkins, I just haven't gotten around to taking pictures of that yet.

I mentioned that Devin and Adalynn are both involved in a playgroup. It has been so much fun. They both really look forward to getting together with other kids their age. Last week Devin's playgroup was at out house and I made them a Halloween lunch.

Spider plates

We made pumpkin cake pops the day before...they weren't pretty, but they were good (I only ate one and was so proud of myself. Usually I eat a ton)
 Some of the food served

 Witch fingers

The kids

We also made slime...which was a hit.

I also made some for Adalynn after preschool and she has been playing with it non-stop.
