I've lost ALL control

Luke and Carter started crawling out of their cribs last Saturday. We went 4 days straight with no nap and they finally napped yesterday and today on the floor ... after 1.5+ hours of playing. They have DESTROYED their room ... diapers, wipes, clothes strewn everywhere, taken off their pants AND diapers, only broken one thing (thankfully), and after Luke fell asleep on the floor I moved him to his bed and 10 min. later I checked on them and Carter crawled out of his own crib and climbed in Luke's crib to wake him up. I'm telling you, I've seriously lost all control!!!!! We're traveling to Birmingham tomorrow and I have no idea what our sleeping future holds ... we'll see if pack-n-plays are any better ... sorry, Robin!!

They pushed all of their socks under the door :)

Pumpkin Patch

We had a really fun Sat. morning at the pumpkin patch. The weather was perfect and all 3 boys had a blast!! We played with some friends, took a hay ride, said cock-a-doodle-doo with the rooster, played in the corn, ate some snacks and a picnic lunch, and truly enjoyed the sunshine!!

Kevin and I got to go to Chicago this past weekend with our dear friends Kyle and Courtney ... Kyle ran the marathon yesterday and did awesome!! Kevin's parents came to town on Friday afternoon and we got to celebrate Kevin's birthday before we headed out Sat. a.m. Our weather could not have been more perfect and our trip went off without a hitch. We did a lot of eating, shopping, and just hanging out. It was a really low-key trip with great friends!! Thanks to Pops and Gigi and also Shannon and Margie for helping out with our boys ... we feel blessed to have family that is willing and - even better happy - to keep our boys ... they all had a blast with everyone :)

Jumpy Fun

Kevin's parents gave all the boys a jumpy for their birthdays, and I can't even begin to tell you how much use we've gotten out of it already. I even overheard Jake say, "Graham's house is the best now!" And our next door neighbors are over on it pretty much every time it's out. It has provided loads of entertainment, and it was the perfect time to get it because our weather has been insane lately. It does fit in our den when we push back the furniture, so just know we'll definitely be setting it up some with the long winter days ahead!!

Mudroom Makeover

We just finished a little makeover of our mudroom/bathroom off of our den. The only before pics I have of the space are pics I took before we bought the house. Anyway, I'm excited to have cubbies and hope this will help keep all of the boys' stuff organized. And I LOVE our new brick floors!!
