More of BeLLa's visit....

We headed to Chuck E Cheese one night and all had a blast playing games and eating pizza.  The boys are really starting to love playing the games and it was a super fun way to spend a couple hours!
 









We had some batting practice with Saw one morning.


Little brother has some work to do on his swing....

But he managed to hit it!

We were cracking up taking these pictures.  I'm pretty sure Keith thought we were nuts!

I love my mom so, so much!

BeLLa visits

We were lucky to have BeLLa visit us a few weeks ago, which of course we all loved!!
  We headed to the pumpkin patch one afternoon and had a great time.  The boys loved picking out pumpkins.  If it were up to them we would have made it home with about 100 little pumpkins that were just right for a 3 and 2 year to carry.  We talked them into some different ones so we made it home with a good variety.
 








Seriously, these two!!

Tulsa state fair

A few weeks ago, we ventured to the state fair.  We've been the last couple of years and it's something we look forward to.  You can check out past trips here and here (oh my gosh, why does time fly so fast?!).  This was the first year we really did rides.  The boys loved them and it was an ordeal when it was time to leave. Ha.  Thankfully, Gra was tall enough to ride.  Barely!  The boys had a blast riding things together. 
 
We started in the animal barn and petting zoo.  Which is always a favorite!
 

Gra wanted to feed them and he loved it.  He literally has no fear!


Saw preferred to be held at first.  It takes him a bit to warm up while Gra just jumps right in.



And Gra got to take a pony ride, which he loved.  If you can't tell from his face!




They each got to choose 1 game to play.  Saw picked this one.

And Gra picked this one.



We met Allison, Jacob and Ella there for the 2nd year.  It was great catching up with them, as always!  And we enjoyed a yummy fair food lunch.  The food might be my favorite part!





 
It was such a fun way to spend a fall Saturday!  Love this time of year!!

Wild Child and 2 yr check up

A couple of weeks ago, Graham met a chair with his forehead and ended up needing 6 stitches.  He was playing on the playground at school and tripped and hit a plastic chair just right.  He had quite the gash.  Of course, I think I was way more freaked out than him.  I knew this day was coming just wasn't thinking it'd be this soon.  Although, this little boy is wide open all the time so I can't say I'm surprised.  But, he was such a trooper through it all and we were so proud of him!  And he's healing up quite nicely!

Had to put his hair in a pony.  Ha.  I think Keith was more upset about that!

He looks real upset, doesn't he?!  Nothing slows him down.  Which I guess is good, but just about gives me a heart attack daily!
 I mean the cut and stitches are obvious but seriously...those eyes and eyelashes.  I die!

at his 2 year check up

2 year check up stats:
height: 35.75 - 84%
weight: 30 lbs - 70%

So, so thankful for this healthy, wild boy. He marches to the beat of this own drum, he is defiant and strong willed, stubborn and determined.  And challenges me every.single.day.  But I know without a doubt that we were meant for each other.  And I could not love him more!
