Random Thoughts...and Some Funnies!

Henry had to take a pumpkin to school this week. I wasn't sure what size to get, so I asked him what size pumpkins some of the other kids had brought. I held my hands out and showed him the size of a small decorative pumpkin. He looked at my hands and said, "No, not a baby pumpkin. More like a brother pumpkin." How cute is that!?!
*************************
I had to pry whats left of this crayon out of Eli's hands and mouth this morning. Apparently red crayons are pretty tasty, because he didn't give it to me without a fight! And I'm pretty sure that this is not all of the crayon....I'm thinking he either ate it or hid it away for a snack for later?!? *************************
I have been in a little bit of a funk lately. I don't know if it's the weather or just because I don't feel good. I haven't taken any pictures {other than the one of Eli's half eaten crayon} in almost two weeks. I know....how sad is that! And it's not like we have been sitting at home either. We have been doing all kinds of stuff and I have no photographic evidence of it!
*************************
ANTS! We have ants in our house...and we don't know where they are coming from. They have been in the living room {a trail of them were going up the couch to eat all the crumbs that were hiding under the cushions} and in Eli's room. Eli has gotten up two mornings this week with ant bites on his face. Poor baby is being attacked at night I guess?!?
***************************
All three boys got haircuts yesterday. And I think I came home with at least half of what she cut stuck to my clothes because Eli decided that instead of sitting nicely in the chair, he was going to flop around like a fish out of water. FUN TIMES.
***************************
I made the boys some SUPER cute shirts for Halloween this week. I used the fabric that I posted about last week for Heidi's Monthly Craft Challenge. I have a few more things that I want to do with the fabric...I just have to find the time {and energy} to work on them! The boys are wearing their shirts to the elementary school fall festival today...so hopefully I will have some pics to share of their SUPER cute shirts.
************************
The fall weather is finally here...at least for now anyway. The lows are supposed to be in 40's this weekend and I am SO excited that it is finally starting to feel like fall instead of an endless summer of unbearable heat!
*************************
I guess that is all the randomness that I have for now. We will be fall festivaling {yeah I just made that a verb} and at the soccer fields for most of the weekend! I hope everyone has a SUPER weekend!

Pin It!

We had a "crayon incident" this morning, too! And, we've had ants, too, which will make you feel really bad, by the way. It's the enormous amount of rain here that's sent them inside. Come on sunshine!! :o)

I hope your weekend cheers you up. I HATE ants and that does always put me in a bad mood. Poor Eli. Yes, please take pictures so that I can see the fun shirts. I'm sure they are adorable.

Ugh. I hate bugs, and we've had fruit flies recently!! Gorss! Where do fruit flies even come from? Do they just pop right out of the banana skin?? Don't worry about the crayon-it'll come out pretty much like it went in. :)

Oh no...we had ants one time too. No fun. HOpe they get gone soon:)
I can't wait to see those cute shirts. I know I will want one for Stunt Man too.
A big brother pumpkin. That is cute.

Lisa said...

What is it with Boys and Crayons??? Im sure they put something in them to draw them into their mouth!!! ;)

Aw, a brother size pumpkin is adorable! And the 1/2 eaten crayon cracks me up. Good thing they are non-toxic!

Can't wait to see photos of the shirts.

Allie is obsessed with putting crayons in her mouth...drives me insane!

I love the pumpkin crack...that's adorable!

Alicia said...

Ugh...I think it's ant season, right?

I saw some ants in the kids bathroom today!! I was like, "Ewww!" I sprayed them w/ some bathroom cleaner...lol!!

Carrie said...

I can't wait to see those cute shirts too :)
we get all kinds of bugs at our house...and mice, of course! we used to have ants, but none that would bite us..poor baby :( Alex will have his last soccer game tomorrow and it's going to be so cold! He and Emily are doing tennis again, and glad that's indoors! Have a great weekend and enjoy the Fall festivities!

My son once swallowed a quarter and I had to check his stool for a week & half to see if he passed it. Talk about fun. I'm sure he probably ate a crayon or two in his earlier days as well, I just didn't know about it. Sorry about the ants, we have these little plug in flashing lights that retract bugs. They're quite an eyesoar, but apparently they work because we don't get many bugs. Can't wait to see pictures of the t-shirts. I'm very impressed with anyone who can make clothes. Have a blessed weekend

I haven't been taking many pics lately either. And we always seem to get ants too after a lot of rain. I hope ya'll had fun at the fall festival and weren't too cold. Can't wait to see pics of the boys' shirts. Your stuff always turns out so cute!!!

Emily said...

Really I think Charlie and Eli are cut from the same mold! That's too funny about the crayon.
And ants! Oh, I would so freak out. Hope you get rid of them soon.
I was so pumped about cold weather and now it's been cold for two days and I'm over it and ready for summer to get here! :)
