What’s Goin’ On

This is going to be a mumbo jumbo blog posting about anything and everything that I can think of that has gone on since I last posted.  Just a lot of random stuff. . .

The first big thing was that we got the Case Haubs moved into their apartment emoticon.  They finished moving everything last Wed. with the help of the guys and the trucks.  While the men did all of the heavy lifting, the women and kiddos hung out at our house and had pizza and played outside.  It was pretty much just another block party.  It was a lot of fun and a nice last evening with the Case Haubs. 

Jack, Morgen, Jaxson and Benjamin enjoying pizza.

Brandy (just moved), Erin (moved a few months ago) and Crystal (just sold their house so they will be moving soon).  I am so lucky to have lived by these three awesome women and have gotten to know them so well.   Don’t worry, it’s not terribly sad though because we still see each other about every other day.

Off roading

Saturday was the Iowa vs Wisconsin game and of course Brad was there. Unfortunately, the Hawks couldn’t pull off a victory, but oh well, life goes on.  I worked on Friday night, so Papa Steve and Grandma Kris came down in the morning to watch the boys while I slept.  They had a great time playing outside and going to KFC for lunch.  In the evening, Papa Mike and Grandma Pam came down to see us.  We went out to supper at Legends and then did a little shopping afterwards.  Then it was home to put the boys to bed so the adults could play some cards.  It was a fun evening. 

It’s surprising they get along so well πŸ™‚

This kid really needs a bath after every meal.  He likes to wave his arms around and swat at the spoon, hence the messiness.

One of Holden’s favorite toys. . . the toaster oven.  Don’t worry, it’s always unplugged.

so cute

Jaxson is doing amazing at writing his letters.  This is my name that he wrote.  He hasn’t quite gotten the concept of writing left to right yet.  His philosophy is that you just put the letter wherever there is a spot on the page.

Jaxson’s Hy-Vee ad comes out this Wed.  I hear it’s pretty cute.

    Cute pics, love the ad so very much! If you’re really wanting to work on left-right directionality with Jaxson, place a silly smiley face or a motivating sticker (fire truck???) on the left edge of the paper as a visual cue showing him where to start. It works well for kiddos his age! πŸ™‚ Looks like you’re having a great fall!
