Veterans Day movie night

With no school on Veterans Day we had a last minute movie night with a few friends.  They all wore pajamas and we made carmel popcorn.  After the movie the PARTY really got started.....
When I can get on Frankie's computer I will post video of the dancing that took place.  It kept Frankie and I laughing for a long time.  The kids were FULL of energy and we had a blast.

Daddy's cute date

I think this may have been the cutest date Frankie has had in a while!  They got to go to a western jamboree for achievement days.  Dinner, line dancing, square dancing and just a lot of fun.  They had a great night!

Keeping my fingers crossed....

Yesterday our little man got tubes in both of his ears.  After having 10 double ear infections (he isn't even 11 months yet) and fluid that would not go away, the Dr finally put them in.   A happy day in my house.  Maybe we can finally sleep (he gets up 2 to 3 times) through the night and take regular naps.  Maybe I will get my brain back.  I am keeping my fingers crossed!!
Enjoying his bubbles.  This is his beard....
And this is how he got it!

Happy Halloween

My cute kids did there own pumpkins this year.  Boston and Sera wanted to carve and Alexa wanted to paint.  They cleaned them out, designed and carved.  It was a lot of fun!
We had a family of clowns this year.

I have to give credit to Frankie this year.  He painted the faces on 98% of the clowns!  Good job, they look A LOT better than my art work would have been.  
We had a fun Halloween in our neighborhood.   A block party for dinner, then trick or treating and back to my house for carmel apple cider and popcorn.

The kids all got the idea of a clown from Beckom.  They wanted to match.  He isn't loved around here is he???

Boston won the award for Terrific Kid in school last week.  He was 1 of 5 students in the entire school.  We were so proud of him.  He loves school, and always wants to do his best.  Way to go Bubba!!
This is his teacher Ms. Steingraber who nominated him.  I want to put the letter that she wrote about him on here so that we can remember his special day.  The principle read the letter and gave him his award at a lunch assembly.

"Boston is a well-rounded kindergartner.  Boston's smile lights up his class everyday and brings much pleasure to his teacher and classmates.  He is always willing to volunteer in class and try his best.  Boston has earned many Weinberg horseshoes for respect and responsibility.  Boston is well-liked by his classmates and shows leadership qualities.  Boston is definitely a Kindergarten terrific kid!"

Thanks Boston for being such a GREAT kid.  Mom and Dad are very proud of you and  your desire to always do your best.  We love you.

Fall Break=cabin, swine flu, Mother Natures Farm, bike park, children's museum

Fall Break started out GREAT......
We went to the cabin and took a drive to Greer on Saturday between Conference sessions.  It was beautiful.
Our little man enjoying the river

Boston loved to cross the river on the rocks
Alexa loved finding the perfect spot to take her picture
Sera spent her time exploring the trails

 they all made it to the middle with only a few wet feet

we stopped here for a delicious lunch and AMAZING desserts on the way back to the cabin   

 And then we spent 10 days like this...
Yes, the swine flu struck and it was BAD!!  Boston brought it home from school and then both the girls got it.  I felt so bad for them.  I can't remeber seeing them this sick.
Luckily this little guy only got more ear infections and kept his smile!!

After the kids and I recovered we tried to squeeze in a little fun at the end of the break.  Grandma joined us at Mother Natures Farm, picking out pumpkins, hay rides, mazes and pumpkin decorating.

We also went to the bike park one morning.  This may have been Boston's favorite activity.
He tried a LOT of new things.  His favorite was the "hills" you can see behind him.
Alexa even joined in and did a good job
Here is Frankie on Sera's bike, it was fun to watch!
The bike park was not for Sera or Beckom.  Sera fell on her first try and that was enough for her.  Maybe next time.

We also took the kids to the Phoenix Children's Museum

My Kids LOVED it.  We had such a fun day.  I think they could have spend another couple of hours there.  They loved the grocery store and the cooking.

Even with the Swine flu attack we had a fun fall break.  The weather was great, my kids were happy and now we are all healthy.  It couldn't get better than that.
