It was a really boring night with just the kids and I... whenI thought of this..... We laughed and laughed our heads off.

Most days after lunch we have quiet time. We go in separate rooms and do anything quiet for 30 minutes. It's the best! Well I went out in t he kitchen and saw Branson was drawing on the dry erase board..... with a permanent marker!! This is what he wrote. It was SO cute and sweet there was no way I could be bugged. :-) I ended up being able to get the marker off anyway.
I have to document this sweet girl. EVERY night she gets all these stuffed animals set up around her and sleeps like this. It is so cute. It reminds me of when I was little because I totally remember laying all my friends out around me before I went to sleep. :-)
It was 4:30 in the afternoon and I was making dinner. Jerik was SO ornery and throwing a fit. He wanted Dad, gum, vitamins, anything! Finally he left the kitchen. He was quiet for a few minutes so I went to check on him. He was in the tub!! At least he's cute.

We had our family pictures taken by Tiffany this year. She's the cutest thing ever!! She is our dental hygienist but almost the best photographer! She was amazing and did anything for a smile. She sang, danced, made silly faces, and even got out a clown nose. We have a bajillion to choose from but here are a few.

Branson's cute soccer team was on fire this year. They all did so well and really came out of their shell. The highlights were that Branson got to name their team the Bulldogs. And one game he scored 6 goals. The final score was 7 to 1. He's so sad the season is over and he can't play for 3 more months.
Ever since Branson started losing teeth, Maycie's been very excited for her turn. I told her it wouldn't be until she was probably 6 so she'd leave her teeth alone. On the morning of October 19, Maycie said that her tooth felt funny. I looked and told her it was loose! She was SO excited. She wiggled and wiggled that baby all day. By about 5:00, it was so ready to come out. She wanted me to tie a string to it and pull it. When that didn't work, I just grabbed it with her shirt and yanked it out. She was the bravest Tina Farfanina I've ever seen. Right away she yelled, "YEAH that didn't even hurt!" I think Branson scared her because every time he would lose a tooth he'd end up crying one way or another. The tooth fairy found her and left $1.11.
Here are some random pictures I've taken over the last couple months of our little Doodies! You can tell that he is BUSY and a half. My Dr. says it shows how intelligent he is. I say it's frustrating! :-) Jerik is currently in love with his cars/trains, animals, putting things in buckets/bags, watching Nemo, and following around his big brother and sister. He comes in our room and climbs in our bed every night and sleep right up against AJ as close as he can get.
This year for Halloween Branson was a vampire, Maycie Cinderella, and Jerik Mickey Mouse. A week before Halloween we had a little party. Ashtyn and Camden came over and they "dressed up". We did a some activities and they thought it was awesome. A few days before Halloween we went to a little fair in town with Grandma Sue and Grandpa Larry while they were in town. The kids saw Jack from Nightmare Before Christmas and got a picture with him. Halloween day Maycie had a Kindergarten parade at 10:00, and Branson had his at 2:00. Halloween night we went to the mall, stopped by a few of our favorite neighbors, then headed to the trunk or treat. I decorated pumpkins for the front porch all by myself and have decided it's more fun! ha ha!!
