Week End

In our house we paint pumpkins. I haven't worked up the courage to do the scooping out the guts and carving  thing. Although with Carso around I know that will be a highlight for him. Maybe I will just buck up and do it this year with a big bertha pumpkin. But for now, we paint.

Yesterday I registered BOTH kids  for flag football this fall. I just wanted them to do something other than soccer. We will see how it goes. Carson was throwing his "bubble football" around the family room the other night. And he had great form, brought it up right by his ear. I was impressed. Now I may be way off about them liking this but I figured we will give it a go. Kate was so cute. The first thing she asked me? "Mom, do they have pink jerseys?" Um no sweetheart. Oh this should be interesting!

I made a pumpkin streusel coffee cake today. My kids both LOVED it. I did not have pumpkin puree but I did have pumpkin pie spice. Why I had that, I have no idea. But I'm glad I did, or it would have just been coffee cake.

I caught Kate dancing with the foam Joseph that she made at Summer Spectacular this summer.

Mommy and Carson selfie. Love the tongue and love that he has his little arm wrapped around my face.

I know I say this all of the time. But I just look at this picture and can't come up with anything other than, "I love him so much. He is MINE ALL MINE!"

I'm reading this book called Setting Limits with your Strong Willed Child. Kate is the opposite of a strong willed child. She is what the book calls compliant and eager to please. So by the powers of deduction guess who I got the book for? But it turns out he is not firmly in the strong willed camp.  Anyway. We have a rule in our house that there is no eating in our family room. Kate pulls her chair up right to the edge so that she can still see the TV but still be in the kitchen to eat. Resourceful.

I came downstairs and found that Carson had taken this enormous slice of cake for himself. I'm so glad he likes it..but come on!


God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
