Booster Seats and Jumperoos

We have two new favorite things in our house: booster seats and the jumperoo. Now, you may be wondering why they love the jumperoo at 18 months of age. Well, they love to climb on it. I mean, all over it. At the same time. They have almost perfected it as well. They are able to climb on it and then use their arms to lower themselves back down. It is amazing and hilarious. They will get caught on it sometimes...then they just whine for me to help them.

I also purchased two booster seats yesterday. We are heading to Wisconsin tomorrow and I am not interested in loading up our two massive highchairs. So, I thought we could try them. I put Alex in one this morning and she loved it. She cried when I took her out. The girls have been fighting over it all day. Alex likes to take it into the living room (or kitchen..where ever it isn't) and set it all up in the perfect position and then lounge out. I think some big girl chairs are needed for Christmas.

We have had a few really good days and I am sort of waiting for the shoe to drop. Nervous, but very excited about Thanksgiving, I just hope our stubborn sleepers are up for the trip!

Fall days...

We have had such a Fun Sunday! The weather was beautiful and we were able to take the girls to the local Apple Orchard! We took a picture of the girls in this cutout. They also slid down a huge slide with their Daddy and Auntie!

I have a bad feeling that today may have been our last nice day of the season...

We have almost all of our Christmas decorations up and I am getting really excited about the holidays this year. I don't remember much of last years' holiday season..we were still just trying to survive!

I have also added some photos of our week. The ones of the girls in their highchairs are hilarious. Some how, no matter how tight I strap them in, they are able to get out! They were watching me cook up a storm here!

The last picture is what happens when I start to rearrange the room to vacuum. The girls were quick to try and escape our playroom. That was moved back to it's "safe" location right after I took this picture!

Favorite things..

A little late, but that's okay. Lattes are my weakness...I have done so good not to go all the time because it is WAY too expensive...but, this week I have needed it!

Favorite Thing Friday

So, it's a new things I want to try out..Every Friday, a new favorite thing. I know, it's only Thursday, but I want to have an early jump on things.

I have lots of favorite things, so why not share these things with everyone! This week it's the Old Navy Yoga fold over pants:

I was able to snap a pair of these for $8.97 and fell in love with them. I will go into Old Navy just to try and find another pair. They are flattering, comfortable and really cute. I love sweatpants and I feel like these are a cute alternative.
I may be a stay at home mom...but I can't rock the sweatpants everyday, these make me feel a little more dressed up =)

This may not seem like much to some of you...but today, Alex and Keegan both held my hand! I think Alex only did it because Keegan did. But, then Alex really got into it...

She pulled me from the playroom, through the kitchen and into the family room. Multiple times. So cute!

We love pumpkin and chocolate chip muffins

Our girls are LOVING pumpkin chocolate chip muffins! I have never cooked with pumpkin until this year...and I am loving it too!

Decorate for Dax

Hey there...

Things have been pretty crazy here, but I just wanted to drop a note asking for your prayers and decorations for Christmas.

There is a 2 year old boy here, losing a fight against leukemia. His family and him have return from St. Jude because there is no more fighting they can do.

In order to celebrate his life and love of Christmas, they are celebrating Christmas everyday (as he is only expected to live for another 6-8 weeks). Please say prayers and put up your decorations!
