a little bit sick......









Poor West has a cold and has not been feeling good for a couple days. I hate when kids are sick. It seems like there is nothing I can do to make him feel better. He just wants to lay around. If he sits down for one second he ends up falling asleep! Yesterday Kev was outside mowing the lawn and West fell asleep on his toy thing! It seem like all he does is sleep. I think that's probably a good thing. Hopefully he will start feeling better soon. I can't wait for him to start acting like his old self.

glow sticks

video

Kev and I have seen the funniest videos with people wearing glow sticks so we decided to try it out on G and West. This video isn't the best but it's the only one I could get before West was done. We were thinking we should have the boys wear them for Halloween, but there is no way West would leave them on!

Garrett's way of riding a bike......

video

Garrett got a bike a while ago and he cannot figure out how to pedal! It is so frustrating to try to teach him because he doesn't really care if he can't do it, he'll just try again later. I guess he gave up on trying to figure it out himself and asked his little brother to step in and give him a hand!!

Fall........

Fall has got to be my very favorite season! There are so many things about the fall that I love. The weather, the decorations, the nice long drives we take to look at the leaves, the smells, and the yummy food!
These pumkin chocolate chip muffins are one of my favorite things. My Mom always made them in the fall! They are so good, you will have to try the recipe out. It's a family favorite!!

Aromatique cinnamon cider candle
The smells in the fall are another one of my favorites! All of the candles are amazing but this one is the best I have ever smelled! It is a perfect candle for fall and for the winter. SO GOOD! You can find them online or at Haw's floral. They have little ones at Evans Gate House, and at Christmas time they have them at Dillards. My Mom and my sisters love it too! There is nothing better then a house that smells like fall!
