Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat was SO much fun! I think I was excited as the kids were. Abbey made the prettiest "Toothberry" I've ever seen. I can't wait to get some pictures on here. She wore her white dress from their Dedication, (which has three little pink roses at the top and sleeves) pink tights, a silver princess necklace, a princess ring, a wand, cute little silver and pink princess slippers, and pink wings with little pink roses on it. I got some new makeup at the Dollar Tree, and did her up good. She looked so gorgeous.
Trevor was a mighty Pirate!!! AAArrrrrgggg!!! He wore black jeans, Abbeys black boots, a red button down shirt, a rope for a belt, with a "booty bag" hanging from it with marbles in it. A sword stuck in his "belt" a pirate hat, an eye patch, and a stick on earring. I did him up with some of the makeup.......I gave him beard!! He looked SO cute.
Dylan was a Cowboy/Sherriff. I so wanted to call him "Marshall Dylan" heehee
He had on a brown vest with a sherriff badge, a cowboy hat, some handcuffs, and I gave him a mustache and a dirty face, with makeup. He looked SO stinkin cute! A deputy sherriff was going around handing out suckers from his car and when he saw Dylan said "well, now, I need to take care of you!" LOL

We saw a lot more people that we know in town this year compared to last year. It's amazing what a difference a year has made. We went to Tim Tiderman's house and when the kids went up to get candy he said to Dylan, "You know, your mommy sings like an angel!" And Dylan said as he was looking at candy "My Mommy's Not An Angel!!!"
Sheesh!!! Out of the mouths of babes??? ha ha

Brenda went with us, and we were both hurting SO bad by the time it was over. It had also rained on us a few times, the last time being the worst. During that rain, Dylan said "mom, can we go home?" Then when we cut down another road before going home to get a few more houses, he said "We lost our home!"
And then a little bit later "We can't find our home!" In this im so sad voice. Brenda and I were cracking up.

I'll get some pics on here as soon as I can.

Abbey doesn't usually like drinks that other kids like. The juices and such. Except Orange juice.
I made strawberry KoolAid, and she didn't even want that (and it's PINK) but daddy without thinking gave her some for supper. She said "I don't want this" but that was the end of it, and we never gave her anything else, just forgot, and so did she.
At bed time, she asked for a drink, so I went and got her a glass of water. She drank it, then told me "I really don't like KoolAid. Sometimes I just want milk or water." Very matter of factly.
I said "I know honey, you just have to remind us sometimes, ok?"
LOL,what a grown up statement. Instead of fussing about it (which believe me, they all do that enough) but she just decided she needed to tell me that, and hopefully, not be asked if she wanted KoolAid anymore, cuz she REALLY doens't like it!!!

Trevor's turn at story telling

Ok, so Trevor isn't the little preacher that Dylan is yet. heehee
Trevor decided that he wanted to tell a story too.......

"One day Jesus was wearing His pajamas, and he went and picked berries."

The End

Creation Story, as Told By Dylan

Today Dylan told Dave "Dad, i want to tell you a story." so Dave said "ok, go ahead. The story went like this..................

One Day, Jesus said "uh oh..........and then he saw the sky, and he smiled, and then he saw the stars, and he smiled, and the he saw T Rex, and he was happy. The End"

There's not much more I can say.................................

Feelin the Love!

They've all three been on this "I love you" kick. We say it all of the time anyway, but I hear Trevor tell Dylan, Dylan tell Abbey, Abbey tell Trevor and so on all of the time now.
Then they'll say "Mom, I love you, do you love me?" And I say "Yes, very much!" and they smile and come give me a big hug.
Too cute!

I'm Smiling at you.......

That's what Abbey said to me tonight. Let me explain. We went with Brenda to a Harvest Party type thing at the Dayspring church. They had tons of kids games, blow up toys, face painting, food, and candy for the kids. They also had a HUGE bonfire. It was great fun. I carried the boys in from the van, they were out like lights, and went straight to bed.
Abbey wasn't asleep, and never is easy to get to sleep.
She called for me after she was in bed, like usual, and I went to tell her "You have GOT to go to sleep." then she said to me "mom, I was just sitting here smiling at you over the fun we had tonight."
WOW, what am I supposed to do with that. So, I said ok, good, I'm glad we all had fun. It was fun. But now you need to sleep, and hugged her. Then I hear "Mom, you're gonna break me." Guess I hugged a little too hard that time. :)

You're Fired!

Ok, I don't think that my sons have ever seen the Apprentice, so I'm not sure where this came from. But today, Trevor got mad at me for some reason, and told me "You're fired mom!"
Then Dave said both boys had told him that too! Hmmmm

A "false limp"

Today the kiddos went with me to a Dr's appt. Jill went with us, so she watched them for me while I saw the dr. Afterwards, we went and got "chicken-donalds" and then to the grocery store.
On our way out of the store, I was looking around to make sure all of my "ducklings" were with me, and saw that Dylan was limping!! I asked "Dylan, why are you limping honey? Why are you walking that way?"
He said "I not limping, I just farting."
ROFL (rolling on the floor laughing).

I Need A Cane!

LOL, Tonight, we had a play time with the GRAC4ME (grand rapids arts council 4 me - preschoolers) activity.
When we got home, everyone was so wound up. They all wanted a cookie though, and something to drink.
So they all had to sit and I gave them a snack.
Afterward, here comes Dylan, saying "I Need A Cane!!!"
And I said "what? you need a cane?" And he doubled over, and held his tummy, and said "yes, I need a cane, I don't feel good." As he walked all over looking for one.
LOL, SO, I figured it out. Sometimes, I have to walk with a cane around the house because my back and hips hurt so bad. My answer to them when they ask why, is that I just don't feel very good. SO, he thought, since he didn't feel very good (too full) that he needed to walk with a cane.

It's been awhile since I've posted. There are several things I want to put in here, but can't remember them all right this moment. But one REALLY cute thing lately is with Dylan. Of course, we're seeing Halloween stuff everywhere, and we say it's Spookey.
Well, he says spookey, in such a CUTE and FUNNY way. It' more like Spuu-Key.
"mom! that's spuukey!"
Cracks me up every single time.
Oh, the other thing is Abbey. Everything is "last year" or "yesterday" and so on.
She'll say something to me about something we did maybe a week ago, and say "remember when we did that last this morning mom?"
Or "can we paint like Last year?" when we just painted two days ago.
We have to work on that. ha ha

May I Can??

Abbey is constantly asking for Gum. Sometimes, even demands it. So we've been working on that too.
So, the other day I told her to say "Mother, May I please have some gum?"
Just being kinda silly, but also tired of her demanding it.
So she says this;" Mother, May I can have some gum?"
LOL, how could I not after that?

Little Brains

The trio is very interested in their Brains lately. They've been asking alot of questions about them. Dylan says it's "sticky and yucky."
They've all asked me where their brains are, or if they have brains, etc.
Well, today Abbey and I went to a friends house, since her dance class was canceled. She played with my friends little girl, Michaela. After we left, she was talking about her "play date" and kept calling her friend Kayla. I corrected her, and she told me "I'll say it later, it's too big for my little brain." ROFL
