So Long September

September has seemed to fly by and here we are in October already!  Here is a look back at some of the fun things our family did in September...

Kristoffer works every Saturday, so it is very rare that we get a full weekend with him.  However, with the first weekend in September being Labor Day weekend, we were able to have him home for THREE whole days!!  He made himself a little list of projects that he wanted to get done, and I am very thankful he squeezed in one project I had for hang all the nursery decorations!!

My very talented Grandma Ellen made these beautiful curtains based on something I had in my mind...I'm so glad she was able to help my vision come together!

My nursery design was based on these super cute sheets I found at Pottery Barn.  Grandma made the crib skirt...again from a drawing I came up with.

I'm sure the girls are going to love their new nursery....just 9 more days!!!


On our bonus weekend day with Kristoffer, he decided we should do something fun for the boys.  We surprised them by taking them to Chuck E. Cheese's!

We got there as soon as it opened, and for $30 we were able to have pizza, drinks and 50 tokens (each game was only 1 token!).  We had plenty of tokens!

The games were divided into more toddler games and then older kids games, and of course our boys gravitated towards the cars first!

This was one of our favorite games and we played it several times....mainly because the boys could get lots of tickets!  Karter quickly figured out which games gave tickets and which ones didn't!

Fun outing with all my boys!!

Before we left, Chuck E. himself made an appearance and the boys got to sing B-I-N-G-O with him!


 Karter surprised us all at the end of August/beginning of September  by showing a strong interest in reading...and doing awesome at it.  As in genuine reading, not just memorization!  His first book read front to back was Hop on Pop!!


Karter also surprised us by eating lettuce...without us asking either!

One day while I was making dinner I turned around to him munching on a giant piece of lettuce...and liking it!!  He now asks for it and enjoys salads!


With Karter in school two mornings a week, I have gotten to have a lot of one-on-one time with Kado.  I can't remember a time that it has just been Kaden and I, and I have loved every minute of our time together! He is so loving and says/does some of the sweetest things...he is always making me laugh.  Like one morning he said he was hungry so I told him to go to the pantry and pick out a snack.  He came running back with his favorite cereal, Frosted Mini-Wheat, and ate two big bowls!!  He loves his cereal!


"Look mommy, I just like you!!"

Karter is my helper boy, and he takes great pride in his job.  I haven't had to hang up a single shirt in the last month or so!



The men in my house are very happy it is football season again!


After a fun family weekend, Daddy gave the boys a special cream sundaes!!  I think it was actually daddy's way to occupy the boys so he could watch a little Football Night in America!


Books!  Our lives and rooms are always filled with books!!  Kaden likes to "read" every book on the shelf...if only he could learn to put them all back!

As much fun as we had in September, I'm sure October is going to top it....ya know, we are welcoming TWO new babies into our home!!!
