Hh is for Halloween

This week at preschool was all about the letter Hh and Halloween. Jake created some great halloween art, carved a pumpkin with the other kids, tried pumpkin seeds (not a fan), got made into a mummy and had Halloween party complete with a parade.

Lunch date...

I joined Jake for lunch today at preschool... he got a little carried away with the baked beans. The little guy across from me wasn't a huge fan either.

Just a few pictures from the weekend...

I meant to post this last week! Nanna and Grandpa came to the pumpkin patch with us last weekend. Grandpa had fun helping Jake cover Sophie up with corn!

We got to see Lorelei again! Too cute!

We painted some of our pumpkins this weekend.

 I painted mine to look like donuts!

 Crafting = tongue out!

Bloomsbury Farm

Jake had a field trip on Monday to Bloomsbury Farm. I love a good pumpkin patch so there was no chance I was sitting this one out. Jake had a ton of fun with all his school buddies!

Catching Up...

Here's what we've been up to lately... we've been busy!

Mike had an emergency root canal a couple Sundays ago! We got to enjoy his half smile and slurred conversation for most of the day. Very hard to take him seriously in this condition!

Jake had a field trip at the fire station!

UofI Homecoming Parade!

 Awe - they're not fighting!

 Of course Sophie's BFF Emerson was there!

Celebrated Grandma's birthday with cupcakes!

Celebrated Lorelei turning TWO!

And we made Confetti Pumpkins!

Catching up...

A quick update on what everyone has been up to lately...

A couple weeks ago Jake learned all about Noah's Ark at preschool. I loved this craft project. The animals are too cute!

Jake also had silly sock day at preschool.

This week at preschool was all about transportation and the letter Tt.

Last week I got the dreaded phone call from your kids elementary school... as soon as you see that number you know something is wrong. Sophie tripped in gym class, fell on a kids head and chipped part of her tooth. Off to the dentist we went! Sophie was super brave and you can't even tell now.

Soooo... last week Mike was super husband and planned a surprise trip to Chicago for our anniversary. He showed up at my office after I got the kids to school and off we went. I didn't quite believe him at first but he had everything planned out. Nanna was watching the kids, hotel was booked, bags were packed and Ikea was in my future. Mike did get a glazed look after about 45min of shopping but he hung in there.

We ate at one of my favorite restaurants... Cheesecake Factory.

We went to an awesome movie theater - it's been forever since we've seen something that doesn't include minions! It was two stories with 20 theaters. The chairs were amazing... leather, reclining and lots of room! The only bad part was the bathrooms were a mile away!

Crate and Barrel - Love!

I sure did miss seeing Sophie's pom performance... but shockingly she survived without me.

This was Sunday morning... Jake decided we needed ALL the pillows.

And in case you didn't know... crafting is much easier with your tongue sticking out.
