A little insanity goes a long way...
This weekend, we squeezed in a birthday party, a trip to the pumpkin patch, some crazy time playing at home, carving pumpkins, some Christmas shopping, a movie, a trip to Sam's club, a little homework and a four page paper on magic squares. No one was beaten and there was even some fun along the way. I'd say it was a success. Here's what I managed to catch on film...

Cecelia's first time bowling. She scored a 100. Not bad all Ballentine!

This was Isla's favorite part. Aidan and Daddy went to see Astroboy at the theater so Isla crashed the party and took over the tissue paper. It was pretty funny.

Party favor lolly pops... crazy children... Nice pick Carrie!

The Pumpkin Patch. Not the best picture but I just thought Isla's face here was so funny! Everyone is looking into the sun though.

Isla is so happy in her little car!

That Aidan, he's hysterical!

There was horseback riding. (Actually pony riding but don't tell Aidan)

Funny Pictures.

Jumping. Lots of jumping.

Aidan bonded with a rooster.

And of course there were several pumpkins that made it home with us.

There some more pictures that were pretty cute. I'll see if I can get them on here later. I don't have any pictures of the carved pumpkins yet. That's on the video camera. I'll take some though. Now, I'm off to drink some more coffee because I'm obviously not sleeping while getting all this stuff done! And I just had my teeth cleaned this morning!

Here comes the update already!!!

I can here the phone warming up and my ear is already beginning to hurt in preparation. I realize it's been too long and I'm about to feel a world of hurt if I don't get some new pictures up. Here they are. I just spent a ridiculous amount of time getting these pictures uploaded. I'm sure I have a couple more I'm forgetting but here you go...

Here's Isla in her super cute turtle sweater. A shout out to Uncle Chuck! If she outgrows it fast enough, I'll give it to Olivia!

Lately, Aidan has been falling asleep in Cecelia's bed. She reads him stories until they fall asleep. It's the cutest thing EVER and one of the biggest reasons I wanted more than one kid.

Aidan making Isla laugh. (with a super annoying whistle)

Isla flying on my feet. I think she liked it.

Too cool! (photo by Aidan)

Cecelia was showing Aidan how to do something on the leapster. It was a really sweat moment before they started screaming again.

Yaya! With her eyes open!


Cecelia and Isla hanging out in a tent in the living room while I needed to work on my take home exam.

Scenes from John's Birthday...

John's holding up the kids so they can swing bats at the tree. I don't pretend to understand why this would be fun or how this came about but I was really happy that no one got hit by a bat.


Watching a movie after school. Aidan decided he was too hot in his shirt.

Going for a ride!

Playing outside on the fort.
