This is the last of 4 blog updates I have done in the last couple of days. To see the others scroll down and hit "older posts". So glad to be caught up again. Enjoy!
Brad's dad came over and helped us in our backyard with his tractor. The boys rode in the bucket when he was done.
I love Lily's little braid. She had tubes put in her ears in October. The surgery was so fast! It only took about 7 minutes! We had to be to the hospital with her fasting at 5:30am and that was the hard part. The surgery was suppose to be at 7, but the doc didn't get there until 7:20. But, by 7:30 she was done and in our arms. She was mad and screamed for about 45 min. The rest of the day she was fine. We are really hoping she will have less ear infections!
Yeah! Ethan's tooth finally came out!
I took Lily trick or treating up and down our street and then I took her home and left her with Brad who was answering our door. I took the Boys out longer and this is what we found when we got back! All that mess is candy! Brad had to take away her bucket because she was eating them wrappers and all.
Ready to trick or treat!
We had a family Halloween/birthday party and everyone dressed up in costumes, except poor Eddie who was sick.
Ethan wanted a Despicable Me party for his 7th b-day in October. Brad dressed up like Gru to direct the games. I think they all had a lot of fun
Minion cakes made out of Twinkies
Ethan decided he really wanted to try wrestling. He really liked it, and did really well but by the end of the season we were all glad to be done.
Amazing how many people attend a wrestling tournament. This was only about half of them, the other half were behind me in the stands!
Brad and his Dad took the boys to an ISU football game and had a tail gate party before going in. Eddie thought this meant they had to eat in the trunk.
We got a bunny from a guy that Brad works with. He is pretty low maintenance and the kids love him. They named him Snowball
Ethan got reading glasses!
This is Allie, Lily's best pal. She asks to go to Allies house all the time.
When I put Lily in a onsie she likes to put things down the front of her shirt like cars and snacks. She thinks she is so funny until she tries to get these things back out, then it makes her mad because she can't!
We had a really scary experience in Sept. Lily fell down our stairs backwards and cut her head open and had to get 2 staples! Her head was so swollen it looked like a strawberry on the back of her head. Watching her get held down, and sitting there watching them do it while she looked at me screaming was the hardest moment I have had as a mom. I just sat there and cried. She was happier when they gave her 2 stickers.
Before the bath, she had blood in her hair
During the bath it was easier to see her staples. She is our 1st to have surgery, to have staples, and to get stung by a bee which happened a couple of days after getting staples. I hope she is not our 1st to have a broken bone, but I wouldn't be surprised.
