I'm going to do my best to post once a month. Keep checking back.

November 2015

 The boys (Brandon included) look for any reason to start a fire in our new fire pit. This fire sponsored by the rotting Jack-o-laterns on our porch 
 Our leafy trampoline
 My favorite thing to do is go exploring to find fun things in our city. We found a park on the White River around the Broad Ripple area. Also, having bigger kids who can push their siblings for the win.
 Noah saying his new favorite saying "WOAH! What's that?"
 One of the only things we miss from our old house is throwing rocks in the river on a regular basis. 
 Brandon had the genius idea to buy the boys some wood that they could what they please with. Pink glove, optional. 

 Brandon spent over an hour maticulously cutting and creating space ships and robot suits. He's so fun. 

 I was all "He's a genius. A baby Picasso." Then Brandon and I started talking and he ate the tip of the crayon. That's more like it.
 I made the boys a face for lunch. (Before you get too impressed, I rarely do this.) Jack broke the oranges in two to make earrings and declared it GsaGsa.
 Noah joined the big boy table.
 
 Our little peanut started basketball. 

 After tucking Hudson in bed two hours before, we came into his room and found he had made a bed on the floor and covered himself with a basket.


 Despite having three celebrations for Thanksgiving (of which I got no pictures), we didn't have anything on the actual day of Thanksgiving. It was one of the most laid back vacations we've ever had. I didn't want it to end. 
 We decorated the tree and watched the Polar Express. 
 Jack is on a robot kick. Ryder found one at the store and texted a photo to Jack. 

 Alas, Monday came and back to reality.

October 2015

Jack started preschool.  He is the most excited person to ever go to school. He is not going to know what to do with himself when he starts kindergarten. 
I dropped him off. He didn't even look back. 
Noah was newly walking and testing, a whiny combination. 
Lots of wrestling
Hudson's first ride in a taxi. 
Jodie and Phil's wedding

Hudson ordered the green eggs and ham for breakfast.
Jack's favorite thing in the world is staying at a hotel. He asks about it all the time. Jack skipped the wedding and stayed back at the hotel with Grandma Susan, Noah, and Papa Chico. This, of course, caused him to fall asleep mid sucker on the way home.
Noah has an obsession with balloons. The mere sight of them causes him to shiver with delight. 
Too much fun in one weekend.
Our neighbors did a great job making their yard super spooky. We visited often.
Hudson and I crashed Ryder's school lunch

We visited our neighbor's yard a lot this month.
Leaves, leaves, leaves. 

And lots of talk of what we would be for Halloween.
Noah is going to have soooooo much fun this Christmas.
The pumpkin patch.

Be still my heart.
More leaves. Seriously, so many leaves.

Getting some exercise in. I was bench pressed too. No you can't see any pictures, but I'm sure the boys would love to tell you about it. 

The Grube family gifted us the best gift ever. We are going to have so much fun biking. 
Poor littlest brother is stuck inside.
Escape!
Halloween is Jack's love language. I took him the Children's Museum haunted house. 
Crazy hair day.
Fall party at school

I was hoping for a lot more years of sweet costumes. They were so adamant about being zombies. At one point, I commented on someone dressed up as a smily face emoji. Jack quickly said "but that's not even spooky". 
Jack got really into character.
 Trick or treating in Logan

At least Noah let me dress him as something cute. 
Trick or treating in our neighborhood. We lasted an hour and then headed home to pass out candy. 
Happy Halloween
