Reese is into getting her photo taken (imagine that!). "Take my picture, Mama, Cheeeeeeeese."

318/365 {Nov 15}

Reesey helped feed baby Ty with Aunt Ashley at our November birthday party.

317/365 {Nov 14}

Started working on a project today. Surprisingly I got most of it done in one sitting while Daddy & PaPa took the big kids to a playoff football game.

316/365 {Nov 13}

I was cleaning in my bedroom when I hear water running ... then I peak in the door and see these 2 little feet.

315/365 {Nov 12}

Our tile floor is coming along. I like it so much better than the old 1980 blue and white linoleum.

314/365 {Nov 11}

The kids can't create enough with play-dough lately.

313/365 {Nov 10}

She lost her first tooth today. It only took her 2 days to pull it out. She's so proud!

312/365 {Nov 9}

I received my prize box from the October LOAD. I really enjoyed doing LOAD this time around even though it was a struggle at the end -- I love my layouts and feel I pushed my creativity more than I ever have.

311/365 {Nov 8}

Good-bye outdated living room decor. Hello new paint.

310/365 {Nov 7}

Another afternoon spent jumping in the leaves.

309/365 {Nov 6}

My friend, Cathi, gave us their old freezer. Now I'm stocking up on bread -- no more running to the store 4 times a week just for bread.

308/365 {Nov 5}

Happy 5th Birthday to my favorite Triplets!

307/365 {Nov 4}

Birthday presents wrapped and ready for tomorrow!

306/365 {Nov 3}

Dress up time: Addison in a too small piglet and Reese in a too big Spiderman.

305/365 {Nov 2}

The kids are the Stars of the Week. Here's our family poster. I wanted to make a tree. It ended up being really big but it's for three kids. The kids loved it.

304/365 {Nov 1}

A day spent raking leaves and smoking out the neighbors.

303/365 {Oct 31}

It was a fun night trick or treating. Reese had a blast and cried when she had to stop and the older kids kept going.

302/365 {Oct 30}

My Wonder Woman trying to fly at during the school parade.

301/365 {Oct 29}

There was a special treat for our countdown to Halloween -- chocolate jack-o-lanterns.

300/365 {Oct 28}

Some nights we are just too tired to do anything else but sit on the couch with the kids. This was one of those nights.

299/365 {Oct 27}

"I'm a rainbow" is what Addison said when she came in this morning after dressing herself. She later explained that stripes and stripes match. She dresses happy!

298/365 {Oct 26}

We made mini jack-o-lanterns out of oranges stuffed with fruit.

297/365 {October 25}

A fun afternoon spent jumping in huge piles of leaves. It was a nice warm afternoon and we had lots of fun.

296/365 {Oct 24}

We are now doing our countdown to Halloween boxes. Each box has a note that leads us to a fun treat.

295/365 {Oct 23}

Leaves, Leaves, Leaves everywhere!

294/365 {Oct 22}

Found a pair of rain boots at the resale shop today for $1.75! Now we can go puddle jumping again!

293/365 {Oct 21}

Big piles of leaves = really happy kids!

292/365 {Oct 20}

I'm getting ready for Halloween by binging on candy corn ... can't get enough of it.

291/365 {Oct 19}

Such a nice day so we had to go to the park. The new norm here is Addison in tears, a lot. She got upset before we left over something Caden said about our pumpkins and it took her a long time to get over it. Poor Jessie even got ignored for a while.

290/365 {Oct 18}

Our annual trip to the pumpkin patch was really fun.

289/365 {Oct 17}

Body surfing on Papa.

288/365 {Oct16}

LOAD project is taking a toll on my scrap area.

287/365 {Oct 15}

Her exact words: "Look Mama, I colored my body!"

286/365 {Oct 14}

My usual before bedtime snack.

285/365 {Oct 13}

Looking cute before bed. This girl is a staller at bedtime and most nights after she's been in bed for a while she comes and asks me to sing her a lullaby. So I make something up and she pretends to be asleep after my 30 second song and that usually takes care of her insomnia.

284/365 {Oct 12}

We went on a leaf walk today. It was pretty chilly and only walked about a block and half then turned around. They were ready to run in the house.

283/365 {Oct 11}

This is for my BIL, Jeremy, is a genetic thing that the cupboard doors don't always get closed. My cupboards are kind of pretty inside, someone once took the time to paint them a nice shade of blue.

282/365 {Oct 10}

We made Monster Treats today as one of the activities to pass the time since we have no vehicle to get anywhere. The kids really enjoyed this -- it was fun!

281/365 {Oct 9}

New obsession: brushing her teeth and washing her hands and filling up the play cups with water to drink. A couple days ago I found her sitting in the sink while she was running the water.

280/365 {Oct 8}

As I was uploading some photos from my bed, I look over and this is my view into the closet. Looks really bad but I just cleaned out the clothes closet and once I got past the stuff I piled it was clean underneath. I cleaned it out last September. Just have to get the motivation to do it.

279/365 {Oct 7}

spilled sprinkles

278/365 {Oct 6}

Soak it in . . . the house is clean for at least a few minutes before the kids tear into it again.

277/365 {Oct 5}

This was my day . . . clothes, clothes, and more clothes. It took me 10 hours to switch out the kids clothes from spring to winter . . . I'm getting faster!

276/365 {Oct 4}

We went to our church's wiener roast. The kids had a blast and even tried roasting their first marshmallows.

275/365 {Oct 3}

Look who's cookin'?

274/365 {Oct 2}

A peek into the kids' room . . . Addison playing with her Pet Shoppe Pets.

273/365 {Oct 1}

Trying to get our game on . . . memory, learning taking turns, graceful winning, losing is okay . . . it's a looooooong road to travel.

272/365 {Sept 30}

Batman returns.

271/365 {Sept 29}

Peeling apples today for an apple cake made me think of my grandma all the apple pies she's made in her time.

270/365 {Sept 28}

Excluding our two bedrooms, downstairs bath, and kitchen, every room in our house needs paint. Our living room is yellow. The 4 sets of 84" curtains are ones I made and cheap new ones would be at least $80 so looks like yellow paint again or maybe brown, picking paint is really hard.
