Another new Friend

This girl loves bugs and crawlies of all sorts...This is a Japanese Beetle, although it looks a lot like a lady bug these little guys bite! They eat something that grows on soy bean farms, I am not exactly sure what but they get bad right after the farmers harvest their crops. Oh and obviously we are back in Iowa!!!! This is the last of the stretch and then we are home....for a few months at least!


So for a few months Jaylee has been asking for earrings....I have been putting it off to make sure that she was completely ready to get them and so one day she asked again for them and I told her ya know it is going to hurt!!! She said Okay, so I pinched her ear real hard and said are you sure? Yep mommy I am sure I want Princess earrings....Then my Grandma Darlin'(Darling) came in town and offered to take Jaylee to get it done so here she is waiting to get her new additions!


So that obviously isn't going to happen....Yeah so the gloves scared her, out of all the things it was the gloves! It was a good try! But we walked away with no new holes!

Trick Or Treat

PLease don't kill me for posting this I thought it was super cute...Brecken and his Mimi.
Now that is a smile!!!!

Grandma Darling and my little Frog
Smell me feet..... Jaylee was a blast!!! At first she stayed in the wagon but once she realized that each house with a light on had candy she got out and RAN from house to house she was hard to keep up with...She lasted until nine o'clock I couldn't believe it!! I accidentally ding dong ditched a house out of stupidity and would like to share my experience so it will give you all something to laugh at...So I took Jay up to this house and totally rang the doorbell and then I realized oh crap they're light isn't on....shoot so I picked up Jaylee and ran for it, well I ran the wrong way and had to pass by the house again and the lady was totally in her window watching us, honestly sometimes I wonder how I walk and talk at the same time!!!

Out numbered!!!

Well it was three girls taking on one boy...needless to say we won!!! We all love wrestle time!!! All except for maybe Mark....when he is getting jumped all over!

The Frog Prince and his Princess

The Frog Prince and the Princess........

Humm...well kinda that would be incest but we won't think of it that way....more of trying to get a theme with only three people involved!!! So Jaylee and my lil sis Sadie were little Princesses and big B was a frog Prince and when they kissed him it really worked he turned into a little Prince!

My little Pumpkin Heads!!

Time for lunch!
No wonder why Jaylee always smiles with her mouth all big and crazy....I can't figure out where she gets it from.

No seriously Brecken looks like a big round pumpkin with his orange hair!!

Him Big!!!!

Thanks Mel I now am always saying " Oh him big" A little piece of Mimi that I brought with me!! So Brecken crawls now!!! In a month he went from barely sitting up to sitting up, crawling, holding his own bottle, finding the bink and putting it in his mouth and saying "MaMa" to bad it actually just means that he is hungry!

Grandma and Grandpa Pi's Halloween fun

Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa Pi the kids got a killer Halloween package in the mail...ANd honestly what is better than getting anything in the mail, there is some sort of magic in mail (not including bills) it always makes me happy and all kid like inside, so I call it magic mail!!! In this lovely package there was all sorts of fun vampire teeth (of which I had to wear around and tell Mark that Edward bit me!! if you haven't read twilight you probably won't get that!) so teeth and snacks and pez and pjs!!! It was super fun thanks!!

Animal Whisperer

I think Brecken is an animal whisperer all animals just kinda flock to him and he loves it he gets the biggest smile and just squeals!!

Wave runners!!!

Kind of missing the main point..the wave runner but we all had a blast!!! It is such a blessing to have neighbors who are so generous!!!! I feel so blessed I have a beautiful family, we travel a lot, we have an amazing extended family who all loves us, we are all healthy and we have gotten to do so many great things!

My little man hanging out on the dock!

My man is soooo cute!!! My little sister Tessa LOVES him...mainly because he is like her own personal toy!

Jaylee really loved the jet skis...I was really surprised because she hates to ride on four wheelers so I thought for sure it would be hard to get her on it..Not so much, once she got a taste of the speed she was hooked...."faster mommy" she would say, "Mommy go like daddy on the waves" Mark would make huge waves and then go really fast over them and she loved it! We were waiting on the dock and she was screaming "jet skis!!"

Disney World

This is our trip to Disney World... You get to see it from the end to the beginning, oops sorry. I have never been to Disney in October, it was by far probably the best time to go!!! It was a beautiful day I must stress beautiful!!! Disney completely redecorates for fall... They ripped out all of flowers and replaced them with beautiful fall colored flowers! They also had pumpkins and scarecrows everywhere. It was so festive and so so so amazing the work that must have gone into it! This was Brecken's first trip to Disney and he was a little young to enjoy it but there was one thing he really enjoyed, the food! Jaylee had a great time she really had a blast riding all the rides and watching all the cute shows that they have. It was so fun. Splash Mountain is a tradition and I always feel bad for those poor souls who get put on our boat, because there is always a war between me, Mark and Melanie on who can get off the wettest! I am surprised we haven't gotten kicked off the ride yet!!

Every time we went by the castle Jaylee told me that it was HER princess castle! She made sure to stretch that it belonged to her...

This is my future house!!! And to think you can rent it out for only like $3,000 a night.

All pooped out.... I can't believe the kids made it until 10:30 before they all lost their minds. The funniest part was when we were walking back to our car Jaylee looked back and said" Thank you so much Mickey for letting me come see you!" It was darn cute!

It doesn't get much more candid than this....This is really what it is like when you aren't trying to get everyone to look at the camera!!! And REALLY no one even looks happy??? What in the world is really going on??? Isn't this supposes to be the happiest place on earth?

Out of all the fun rides the people mover was her favorite, I must say I am a little dumbfounded..the people mover really??? I guess she really loves watching people!

The girls...
And the boys!!!

There were so many fun rides for her this year so rode Aladdin, peter pan, dumbo, pooh really anything in fantasy land she could ride it was super fun!!!

Jaylee loved riding the train... Every time the conductor blew his whistle she screamed "Holla Horn!" Which also means "All Aboard!"

Where do I get me one of those???'s three o clock and he is already pooped

I am not quite sure if Tessa is enjoying herself in this picture!!! The other two sure are!

She is always having a good time... Even when we are just waiting in line

Really, who's bright idea was it to give him ice cream.... Well his dad was holding him but who was feeding him??? The one bright side was it sure did cool him down! Still isn't justified though! Look at how intense he is about it too.

OH my HECK I think he is so darn cute I just can't get over his cute, innocent little smile it just make me want to bite him!

Heck no I won't touch that crazy talking dog!!! A year ago I could get her away from the characters and now I can't get her near them!


Jaylee is a nut case...actually she calls herself a knuckle-head (Thanks Uncle Matt!) But I am beginning to agree with her because who else drinks there sippy cup with there feet?

Dress Up

While Jaylee was playing dress up she found a cape...Because Jaylee isn't really familiar with how a cape was worn she made it into an elegant dress. And told me "Look mommy this part is to cover my boobies!" How can I argue with that?

Puppet Show

Sadie, my dad and Jaylee gave us a wonderful little puppet show. Jaylee didn't know what to say so she just copied everything that Sadie said...hum go figure! Jaylee's just thought that she was hysterical the little drama queen loves anytime that she feels like everyone is paying sole attention to her.

Jaylee's new pet

Jaylee made my dad catch her a little lizard, she said just had to have it! The best part was watchcing my dad try to catch it without touching it. It is the same lizard that is in the picture below.

Creepy Crawlies are all around!

This is our guardian..the hawk. I like him because he hunts the snakes that live around our house... The picture totally sucks because I took it from inside our screened patio, I knew if I even opened the door he would fly away.

this is the baby gator that has taken up residence in the little pond next to our house! No worries though, when he gets big enough that he could eat me he will move into the lake behind us...the same lake we go boating in.... I feel like that is wrong on so many levels, swimming or boating with full knowledge of what lies beneath me, yuck! ( the little gator is in the middle of the picture, I had a hard time trying to get the picture to not have a reflection when it was so bright out)

Florida is a beautiful place... so much so that it has many different kinds of residents as you can see.

I have raised a dog!

Yes my little angel is not quite a little angel any more....She loves to wrestle and lick people!
