Well, so much has happened over the past few months, I don't even know where to begin...Elias turned 7 on August 17 and had 2 friends come over to spend the night. We went & saw a movie & then went back home for a party. I made him an R2-D2 cake & we had a fun night!
Simeon turned 9 on August 26 and had a party similar to Elias'. He had 2 friends spend the night, we went to a movie & ate pizza. He, however, asked for Chocolate Chip Cupcakes instead of a cake. It was lots of fun!
The boys started school...Isaiah in Kindergarten, Elias in 1st grade & Simeon in 3rd.
The boys played Upward Flag Football and enjoyed it very much. They all improved so much! By the end of the season, Simeon was making some pretty amazing plays (stiff arms, jumping over people, throwing touchdown passes to his cousin, just to name a few), Elias was making touchdowns, Isaiah was learning the plays (and stopped chewing on his flags!). It was a great season and so much fun to see the boys play! Here are Isaiah, Simeon & Elias playing....
We also had some fun at the pumpkin patch. We went to the ISU patch and then to Rader's Farm in Normal. The kids found pumpkins, scarecrows, and even had their faces painted!
We carved our pumpkins for Halloween...each boy had his own ideas for what his pumpkin should look like...of course!
