Therapy: Halloween Edition!

Joey's lovely physical therapist decided to do a sensory therapy session/craft. I was thrilled!

Getting those feet painted.... (while munching a string cheese, I might add)

He hated it.... Too much feet tickling and holding still for this baby!

Hannah, Joey, and his ghost feet!

She even did Kirk's too......he didn't want his picture made.

I've been crafting...

My Kirkly has had some sort of plague going on for a few, I've been trapped inside...just me, my craft supplies...and addiction. So, I've tried my hand at a few things.

First of all, these lovely candle holders. Dollar store glass candle holders, craft glue, and sticks. Throw some apple cider candles in there. Yum. Fall is here!

Next up, this doll of a wreath. I wanted to make a hallowed out book. (I did. Not pretty. Not posting pictures.) I had all the gutted out pages and I couldn't throw them away could I? So, cut out some leaves glue them to a dollar store wreath. Done. Here's an interesting fact, this book was about Hitler. Something is ironic and humorous about having Hitler decor in my house. In fact, if you look at the leaves closely you will find all sorts of interesting thing....Nazis, sexual tension, and someones bowels being expelled. Good stuff.

Pumpkin Patch

Danny and I took the kids to a pumpkin patch today. I have been BEGGING to go since Kirk was born and Danny finally broke down and took us. It was a blast. Even Danny enjoyed it. There was a wagon ride, petting zoo, hay maze, pumpkin picking, bouncy houses, train ride, "haytona" raceway, and play sets. We spent 3 hours there and I took a ton of pictures (more of them are on my facebook). Here's a bit of what we did:

Train ride!
Our 4 pumpkins
One of my favorite pictures of the day

Then, I tried to get artsy fartsy....

New shoes!

Danny brought in new shoes for the boys....LEGO SHOES! He was the hero of the day. They are kind of atrocious, but they were on sale for like...$5 each. Yeah. Plus they are legos. Win win.

Yard Sales!!

Me and my mom love us some yard sales. Usually, it is a whole bunch of junk that I wouldn't give away. Today, we racked up. My best buy of the day was similar to this:

Yea, it was $15. Table, tracks, train, station, and all the other stuff. It's not in perfect condition, but I figure it wouldn't be after my kids played with it for a bit anyway. Then I got a new booster seat for Joey for.....$1. This stuff, along with what I have been hoarding away in my closet for the past year, will complete the kid's Christmas. On top of that some random person gave me a big box of fabric. Granted, it is kind of ugly and I may never use it, but, it was FREE.

Yay for being thrifty.

Oh and by the way....

Parks and Recreations is one of the funniest shows ever. Just got caught up on netflix and I think I shall go back and watch it all again. Seriously. Hilarious.


Doctors appointments with the shortest man always make me nervous. Even if it is just a check up. Going to the nephrologist in Memphis tomorrow. I think I'll go power down some BBQ chips and the coke in my fridge. FFL. Fat for life.

Halloween Crafts!!

The fam and I made Halloween crafts last night! Eeekk! So exctiting!

We made trash bag ghosts to hang in the trees!

Danny helped make this cool window decoration!

And the 3 of us big people made jack o lantern/jar luminaries.

It was a pretty great night!

Fro-fro baby

Ah, the Joey man and his curly locks. They are sweet. Every lady that we walk past at Wal Mart touches it. But man, is it a mess. The back of it knots up and mats up and looks gross. So, I did some research and turns out satin sheets are easy on the hair. I packed the boys up and off we went to Babies R Us. Guess what? They have none in stock. They could order me some, but...those suckers are $20. What?!?! So, what else can I do, but make my own. Hancock Fabrics had their satin on sale, so it my grand total was around $8 for fabric, elastic, and thread. I googled some tutorials and it was actually a very easy thing to make. Plus, it looks pretty snazzy!
Yes, that is storage behind, under, and around the crib.....we've got to make use of every inch we have!

He's totally worth it, right?
There are almost no pictures of the boy where he is not eating or covered in food.

Don't tell, but I had to put his hair up in a ponytail....He may hate me one day, but, man, it is so dang cute!
