Happy Halloween and a dead bird

People here in Texas know how to celebrate Halloween. This is Halloween party #1. You can see Theo with his pink bucket. He is next to the M& M kid.
Halloween party #2 at the library.
We went outside and they had a girl throwing fire. Theo said that was his favorite part.
I could only take so many Halloween parties so we took a break for a few days. This is a pic before Halloween party #3 in which they received so much candy we actually didn't go out, door to door. Theo chose the pink Easter bucket over his skeleton.

DEAD bird. These poor birds keep flying into our windows, killing themselves. I think this is the 3rd or 4th bird that Jared has had to take off of our patio. Maybe we should start a bird cemetery.

Texas and Michigan

Okay, if anyone wants to come see us during the State Fair, it is pretty cool. Well, we had a great time and we found out how to get in at a discount rate.

They had a great petting farm/zoo. Theo loved it. Here is the Emu waiting for the food.
A camel. They have really large tongues. They also had a zebra, giraffe, ostriches, and a four horned sheep. Have you ever petted or fed a giraffe?
Then they had the cutest little farm experience for the kids.

BACK in Sept. (sorry, I should have posted sooner) we went to MI. We had a lot of fun. Thank you, thank you to Grama and Pop-pop for all that they did for us. And thank you to our cousins, siblings, and in-laws for meeting us there. We really had a great time with everyone.

Theo loved helping Pop-pop give Mac a bath. My husband says, "Poor Mackinaw."
We went to a county fair nearby Kzoo and this exhibit was my favorite, the birthing exhibit. I don't think I have every really seen a chick hatch from its egg.
The kids loved checking out the tractors and lawn mowers.
We went to a cider mill. I have one word for that place, YUMMY! Great doughnuts and cider. I must also add that our kids have some pretty cute cousins.
Thanks Gigi for loving our kids!
We also got to go to a MI game. It was a lot of fun. Theo looked at this pic and said, "Oh, you look so cute." So, I posted it. Is it bad that I am influenced by a 3 year-old's opinion?

Theo started preschool and I wanted to get a picture. Norah insists on doing everything Theo does so she also was in the pic. She also cried and screamed when I dropped off Theo because she wanted to be in school, too. Do you like the one shoe?

I wear my sunglasses.....

We have been going to the free mall events and we received these cool free sunglasses. Theo absolutely loves them. When he first got them he kept saying to me, "I look cool, mom." Now he keeps them in the car with our sunglasses.
Norah is trying to learn how to be cool from Theo.
Great cheap entertainment.

The parade got rained out so we had our own inside the house.
Don't forget the candy!

Visiting Family!

I felt almost a little discouraged about blogging this trip because we did so much in such a small amount of time. I have so many pics to choose from and I didn't want to leave anything out. But, I did. Maybe you will see more pics from this same trip in the future. I also wanted to say thank you, thank you to all of our family on both sides who made this trip so great! And especially my parents for letting us stay with them. With that being said......there are a lot of PICS:)

We were able to play with our Doot cousins a couple of times. Theo loved playing with his Uncles.
Norah loved my dad.
Theo rarely ever takes naps anymore. But, when my mom would tell him that she needed to lay down he said that he needed to, as well. He took a few naps with Grandma during our stay.
I saw an advertisement for a 5k, so on a whim, I talked some of my family members in running it with me. It was a lot of fun. Thanks family for doing it with me!
We played baseball with all the cousins.
Memorial day fun after visiting the cemetery. Theo had so many cousins to play with that he rarely needed me.
We went to the zoo with my friend and her kids.
Playing at our friend's house. Norah loved the trampoline. She had no fear of getting close to the edge.
My brother going down the fun slide my family rented.
Theo was a little scared of the slide but he loved the hose and little pool next to it.
Norah's first baseball game. This is Theo's second. His first was at a Tiger's game when he was 3 months old. Great Grandpa Doot claimed he saw Theo on t.v. He always made us laugh.

Art museum and more

This is the "and more" part of the title. This picture looks very similar to the one where our little one had a cookie but this is not a cookie.....dirt. I don't remember Theo eating dirt??? Same thing happened with play dough, I thought she might like touching it; but no, she just wanted to eat it.
We went downtown to the art museum. We found out that they had a free day and took advantage of it. Nory wants to be big just like the rest of them.
She loves to color and sit up to a table her size.
They had dancers and a story time. Theo seemed to like it. Although, when they tried to get him to come out and dance with them, he declined.
And to add to the whole experience, we took the train there and back.

The Hunt and Grandma

The little town of Sachse had an Easter egg hunt. It lasted about 5 minutes, but it was worth it.
Theo was all over it and filled his bucket up pretty fast.

Tootsie didn't quite understand what was going on. She kept running out onto the egg hunt territory before the hunt began. I had to continually run out to retrieve her.

Although, she did seem to know what to do once she got a piece of candy in her hand. Run!

Grandma came to visit and it was wonderful. We didn't do much but we did make it to some fun parks. This was at the train park. Theo thought it was great that Grandma would buy tickets from him.

We also colored Easter eggs. Theo loved the color pink and putting stickers on the eggs.
Happy Easter everyone!
