So these are some of my favorite posts because I know I will not remember if I don't write it down and I really don't want to forget these small things that make full days for me now. So here goes in no particular order: Things I just must remember...
Let's start with Isaac since he is the youngest...
MIRE MAN!! Mire Man is the word Isaac uses for any superhero character or any character that does not look human but seems "cool" to him. This started with Spider Man. He has a spider man t-shirt and would say Mire Man for Spider Man but once Halloween hit and the boys were all superheros (another post I need to do) they were all Mire Man.
Baba and Ganky...These are Isaac's most beloved items, his blanket, a crochet blanket made by Shel Cooke and his pacifier. He will not sleep without both of them and he would prefer to have them both with him at all times. He drags his ganky around with him all day long, every morning down the stairs it comes and he even uses it as an obstacle for his car trains and builds them right over it like a mountain pass.

Tonight we carved our pumpkins. We went over to Grandma and Grandpa's new home here in Anaheim. The boys got hard to work on the pumpkins and then Isaac decided to come in and help me and Grandma with treats, like super fun Halloween sugar cookies and hot chocolate!! He was an awesome helper and the big boys rocked it on our super cool Jack-o-lanterns!!

Adam turned 4 last month and we threw a party!! Although I was still very sick I sucked it up for a day and I have to admit it turned out well. Lots of his friends from preschool showed up along with some of his favorite family members like Papa and Mima and G-Ma and Grandpa and Aunt Sarah, and Aunt Lindsey too. He also got his best buddies Caleb and Kien to come down from Agua Dolce, he is one lucky and loved little man!!
I made these cuties to give to all of our winners/participants in our field games!!
Toss the rubber chicken was a big hit!!
Sack races always are fun to watch :D
3 legged races are fun to watch too
We also had just plain races and tug-o-war which were not photographed
then we ate some lunch (hot dogs and chips) and opened some gifts!!
Here is some of the gang, left to right
Braden, Garvey, Adam, Brandon, and Kevin
Then we had cupcakes in ice cream cones!! They turned out super cute and the kids thought they were awesome!!
I want to give a special thank you to Papa who was our grill master and the only reason we have any pictures of this event, so thank you so much Papa!!!

well I just found a treasure trove of new pics on my computer from where my hubby downloaded his phone pics, yay and I found some fun ones that I had to share!!
So here are some pics and why they are so awesome!!
They play ball with Dad!!
scooters are way big at our house
boys don't mind getting dirty!!!
or wet for that matter
They innately love camping and hiking (at least mine do)
throwing rocks into water will never get old for us!!
boys are crazy no doubt about it
they don't have to wear shirts and steal each other's food!!
Sand from head to toe is definitely not something to worry about
a messy face is pretty normal
climbing up on big rocks to get really wet and scare mom is the most fun
for these and many many more reasons we are so excited to be adding one more boy to our family
Boys Rule, Girls Drool
(at least at our house)
