no more diapers. no more diapers. no more diapers......

Can you tell what we've been working on since my last blog post?
Do you realize this is the FIRST month in over 3 1/2 years
we do not have to buy diapers?
I don't even want to think how much money we've spent on 
diapers....but I will enjoy having $50+ dollars extra a month!

It's been a busy year so far. 
Preschool 3 days a week.
In home daycare/family care once or twice a week.
Trips to visit family & friends. 
Packers Super Bowl win.
Growing like weeds!
Life is busy, crazy and full of toddler humor.

Connor's favorite words are poopy, poopy butt, yucky.
He wants to stay small.....
I think he would sleep in bed with Chad & me every single night.
it's a hard habit to break.
He wants "rainbow hair", "long, long, long rainbow hair". 
I'm on the lookout for a rainbow Halloween wig.
His birthday is in the garbage.....

Chloe's favorite words are big kid, no, woof-woof and I'm TALL.
She wants to grow big, big, BIG!
Her love of all things Toy Story continues, 
though she'd wear her WI Badger football jersey every single day.
And outright refused to wear a GB Packer cheerleader outfit. 
How dare I even offer it!

Both are so sick of the snow. 
They want sun.
Our snow piles are so tall.
Not sure where we will be putting snow that's collected
between the road and sidewalk. 
Since the blizzard last week, we've received at least 8 more inches
that's on top of the oodles of snow on the ground already. 

And have I mentioned that we have undie butts in the house

So proud of my shorties.

Timmy/Tina the cat.

Chloe, Connor and I visited my sister's farm last week. Timmy/Tim-tim/Tina the cat quickly greeted us on our arrival. Let's look at the photo story of the reunion, shall we?

After this last photo, Chloe took Tim-tim into the house to ask Uncle Eddie of the can could come in. No? Then where are Duncan and Roxie??? They LOVED the animals, even the wet kisses on their faces.

Happy November!

So sorry to have neglected my blog. I need to make an effort to update at least once a week!
Here are some photos of life the past 2 months:
First day of preschool. Chloe-super excited. Connor, no so excited.

Painting pumpkins!

waiting for the local high school homecoming parade to start.

I broke my right big toe. trying to kick a soft ball. I missed!

playing at a local orchard.

1st time riding horses. Chloe LOVED it. Connor had a poopy lip the entire ride :-)

"driving" their "fire truck". Don't all firefighters wear hats w/ diapers?

riding our trikes on the sidewalk. back and forth, back and forth.

preschool halloween party! They were  a tad excited that daddy showed up. Look at Chloe's face!

Chloe as Woody the Cowboy {yee-haw}

Connor as a race car...vvvvrrrrroooooommm!
