Our Princess gets her first mani and pedi

My mom and dad are visiting with us right now and so today my mom and I decided to go get our toes and nails done, and then we decided to be very daring and took Morgan with us.Morgan does not sit still for very long and can be very loud and touchy at times. I was a little hesitant to do this, but she did great barely squirmed a bit.

When we got to the nail place we picked our colors and Morgan chose yellow glitter (which you can't really see, but she insisted). When it was our turn I had Morgan sit on my lap, and then stand in the water and bubbles, she loved this part. Once they started on my toes they took Morgan and put her in her own chair (she looked so tiny in the chair) and turned the massage on for her, she figured out how to work that real quick :) They painted her toes and nails and she thought it was pretty neat.

She got a flower on her thumb, and polka dots on her toes .

Cameron is "toothless"

Cameron had lost 3 of his teeth before Sunday evening. Then on Sunday he lost both of his front teeth. I knew one tooth was ready to come out but I had no idea the second one was even loose. Rich and Cameron were wrestling on Sunday while at my cousins house and Cameron looks up and starts crying because he is bleeding everywhere. He said he lost his tooth but couldn't find it, so I get him all cleaned up and we find the tooth. I kid you not five minutes didn't pass and they start wrestling again and his other tooth comes out. We do the process all over again. I wonder if wrestling helped the teeth come out a bit, at least the second one :)

The first thing Cameron said after the ordeal was over with is that on Monday at school he is going to "suck" in speech class because he can't do his "s" very well.

The Tooth Fairy was prepared for one tooth to come out but not two in one day. But Grandma and Grandpa are here visiting and they saved the day for the second tooth :)

My little man is growing up way too fast!!!!

Trick or Treat

Each year the kids get more excited for Halloween. Cameron knew right away that he was going to be a character from Star Wars, going on 4 years in a row. Morgan on the other hand kept changing her mind. She finally decided on a Witch, so Rich took her last week to buy her costume and they bought a cute little witch costume with a broom. But at the last minute she refused to be a witch and so we put together a princess, fairy, ballerina look, which she loved. Good thing she has lots of dress up clothes to choose from !!!!

There was one house that we went to and they gave Morgan some spiderman crayons, Morgans response to the lady "A boy thing, really" the lady felt bad and gave her an extra sucker and it was yellow so that made up for it. I wasn't sure how to respond to that one...

Rich stayed home and handed out candy while me and one of the other parents took the kids around the neighborhood. Our kids made it around the block and they were ready to come home. Cameron enjoys handing out the candy more than anything.

A Day of Fishing

One of the things that Cameron and Rich love to do together for some bonding time is to go fishing. Cameron is getting at the good age where he loves to go and does not mind sitting and waiting for the fish to bite. They went a few weeks ago and caught one fish but Rich forgot the camera.

Cameron was itching to go again today when we got home from the pumpkin patch. Him and Rich headed out and Cameron was pretty excited because he finally got a "big" fishing pole. He loves to play with the worms as well, must be a boy thing :)

When they returned home Cameron was proud to announce that they caught 3 fish this trip. Not sure who was more proud him or Rich.

Fall Ball is Under Way

Today Cameron had his first game of the season. Not only the first game of the season but his first time to play kid pitch. We finally get to play with regular rules, and catchers. It is nice to be done with Coach Pitch. Cameron is on an awesome team with some great kids, and the Coach is awesome as well. Cameron is the only 7 year old on his team, all the other boys are 9 years old.

He did pretty well today. Didn't get any balls hit to him, but he did get on base once and stole second. The other two times he struck out. He was a little nervous about which pitches to swing out. The umpire was not the greatest around. He was calling strikes if it was over their head and if the ball hit the plate he called it a strike. Rich had to remind me that he signed a Code of Conduct for the both of us. I guess I should probably keep my mouth shut :)

We are looking forward to a great season and lots of fun!!! One of the cool things about this team is that the players all go by nicknames and they are on the back of their jerseys. Cameron thought long and hard about his nickname and he chose "Boston". I think he forgets who they are talking to when they yell out his name.

Cameron loves to "stack"

Last year at school Cameron belonged to a club called Stacking Cups. Cameron fell in love with it right away. So of course he had to have his own set of cups, mat and timer. Believe it or not they have actual competitions with stacking. Cameron has become very good at it, and could do all 12 cups in about 1.5 seconds. I tried to get a video of him but he refused so some pictures will have to do :)

Happy Birthday Rusty!!!!

Today is a special day at our house. It is Rusty's 13th Birthday in people years and 91 in dog years. Needless to say he is an old dog. We forgot to buy him some cupcakes so we made a piece of toast and cut it up and put some peanut butter on it for him. He was happy that we just remembered his special day!!!!
