Birthday #7

William turned 7 on the 25th of October!  He is getting to be so grown up!  He is such a smart guy and I can't wait to see what he will do when he grows up!

Ben is checking out his gift.  (William's birthday is also Ben's half birthday)  He asked for these teensy pet shop figurines.  They are a "girl" toy, but he doesn't care.  He just loves the tiny little animals.

Project 52 - Week 42

Week 42 ~ October 16-22

Fall is here and Halloween is around the corner!  We roasted some pumpkin pie pumpkins today.  The boys enjoyed helping even though they don't like roasted pumpkin.  Unfortunately, the pumpkins this year turned out awful!  And I mean truly awful!  One tasted like perfume and the other was just dry and not very flavorful.  I was VERY disappointed!  I had been looking forward to eating roasted pumpkin for a few weeks.  I ate almost all of the roasted pumpkin we made last year straight out of the oven and almost didn't leave any to make recipes with!  Pumpkins are shipped up to Alaska, so we must have gotten some old one this year.

Earlier in the day the older boys watched a movie that was in 3D.  Eli watched about 3 minutes of it, but it was long enough for me to get this cute shot.

Project 52 - Week 41

Week 41 ~ October 9-15

Ben's preschool had a visit from the local firemen this week!

Everyone got to touch him with all his gear on, so they wouldn't think he was scary.

Showing us how high the ladder goes.

William's school was out that day, so all the older siblings were invited to come too!

Another Saturday at home!  LOL!  We got out the tunnel this week.  The boys just love this thing!  They decided to put it on the couch for a while.

Project 52 - Week 39

Week 39 ~ September 25-October 1

The weather is starting to get cold and James has been gone for a long time, so I am running out of steam to get out and explore Alaska.  So we stay in on Saturday of this week and had a jammie day.  We did however, work on a project that I have wanted to do for a long time!  We made giant ruler to mark our heights on.  Pottery Barn Kids used to sell one for a ridiculous amount of money and I always wanted to buy it.

Here is the before picture

The after picture!  I love it!

Project 52 - Week 38

Week 38 ~ September 18-24

We had a low key week with school and routine errands that come along with life.  I did manage to capture a few pictures of the boys playing outside on Saturday.

Eli being super cool!

Check out the color of the leaves in our neighborhood!

Fall Festival

Here we are visiting the annual Fall Festival at Pyrah's!  The first thing we did was play in the leaf pile.  I think this was everyone's favorite.  The boys would have stayed there the entire time if I let them.

There were lots of little carnival type games.  This one is "fling the chicken into the basket" (or something like that)  You stomp on one end of the catapult and try to fling the rubber chicken into a basket.

Pumpkins are typically shipped up to Alaska .... and for good reason!  This was the pumpkin patch.

Another quality pumpkin.  At least Eli had fun with them!

Kick ball bowling.  (Apparently cabbage grows well up here!)

Potato races!
