Music of the Night....ummm Midafternoon

I went to watch the Phantom of the Opera yesterday in Tempe. It was so cool. I went with my Aunt Peggy, my cousins Alissa and Amy, and their daughters, Kailey, Ashley and Emily. It was a suprise for them...we told them we were going shopping at a big mall. Then as we walked up, a woman asked if we wanted to buy a Phantom program or rose. The girls were all confused, and the woman said,"Well this is the Phantom of the Opera". They were so excited.
The costumes were all amazing....the cast did a very good job. I can't wait to go back next time...maybe I will make my husband go.

Pilgrims ate Cool Whip??!

Grayson had his Pilgrim Feast in school today! I was a very bad mommy and forgot to send my assignment of Cool Whip (Pilgrims ate cool whip???) But I couldn't help but take a picture of him.....his outfit was so cute! They took pillow cases and decorated them. They each got to draw on their own symbols. It looked VERY very easily could of sold in a gift shop ;-) . He said that they had it at lunch time. Their meal consisted of cornbread, Pilgrim Stew (he wouldn't eat) and pumpkin pie. I asked him if he thought pilgrims really ate that, and if they kept their cool whip in the fridge...he just laughed at me.

never trust a 3 year old

Me - Jayden your hands are so clean!

Jayden - I washed them!

Me - Wow! Good job!

Jayden - I used da' soap!

Me - I don't think I heard the water running?

Jayden - (Just smiled)

Me - Jayden........WHERE did you wash your hands???!

Jayden - In the water

Me - What water??!

( At this point he took the hand I might add....and lead me into the bathroom where he had washed his hands in the toliet. He had used soap...and the soap was floating in the toliet now. He had also taken a rag and washed the counters, sink, toliet, bathtub and floor with the same soap and water.....he's just so helpful!)

WhAt 7 yEaR oLd BoYs PrAy FoR

Grayson has really liked raking leaves all of a sudden....which is good because we have PLENTY. He is always quick to do anything that I ask of him. He is such a good big brother to Colby and Jayden. He loves to read and learn new things. Without ever being told before bed he gets a book and reads it for a few minutes while either Jeremy or I read to the other boys. He is so tall 4th or 5th grade he will be as tall as I am....he already goes up to my chest. It is so crazy to think he started out 5'11, and even got down to 5'3. Now he is almost 50 pounds. Its amazing to think.

We have family prayers every night and we take turns saying it. Grayson usually has to be asked and persuaded alittle bit, but last night he volunteered. I have to try SO hard not to giggle when he says the prayer.....I am just going to put in a few things he asks for....keep in mind he came up with this on his own..........

"Please help us to not get dirty"

"Please help us go to sleep"

"Please help our toys"

"Please help no one to kill us"

"Please help us to not get to school late again"

What do Darth Vader, Obi One Kenobi, and Batman have in common?

Halloween of course!!!

We went to the "Trunk or Treat" in St. David for Halloween. The boys have alot of fun. Jeremy is the one to take them around to get candy, while I sit at our car (the trunk was decorated) and pass out candy to kids. I will be completely honest....I can not stand going around and waiting in line for games and candy. I get impatient....they are sticky.....the line takes too long...etc. So it is better for our whole family if mommy just stays behind. Then of course the boys get done and come raid the candy that I have.

Jayden aka "Batman"
Jayden was Batman this year for Halloween. He would dress up every few days just for fun. Then he would get on his bike...inside the house of course...apparently bikes dont go outside??! He would then tell me that Batman doesn't like to walk. Then race his bike back and forth thru the house trying to hit everyone and everything in his path. And he would shoot us with his web.....yeah he was confused but it was too cute to stop him.

Grayson aka "Obi One Kenobi"
Grayson had a hard time finding a costume. Everything he wanted either was REALLY expensive, or was too scary. He is getting way too old, pretty soon he won't even want to dress up, he will be out toliet papering houses, and making dry ice bombs with his friends. (Actually we made dry ice bombs at home halloween night, so thats where he'll get the idea) And he will beat up his younger brothers and steal their candy. Maybe I have a few years left....

Colby aka "Darth Vader"
Colby always gets really excited when he sees anyone from his class outside of school. So anytime he would see someone he would always tell me, and say what they were dressed as. He really wanted to wear the mask that came with his costume but they weren't allowed. Sometime during the evening he lost his cape.....not quite sure what happened to it. Poor kid he doesn't stand a chance with two superhero brothers.

"Scary Guy"

The boys found some goody bags I had made for one of my classes. There was vampire teeth we put them on. Jayden said he was a scary guy and kept making was too cute to pass up. So here is our pictures from playing around with the teeth.

Batman (Jayden) Turned 3!!!!

We had Jayden's birthday party on October 24th. It was alot of fun(and work). I always have a halloween theme because it is so close to halloween, and I HATE paying so much for costumes and then the kids wearing them only its a costume brithday party.

I ran out of time, so I just bought a costco cake.....I normally have a really cute one.

Jeremy and I dressed up...I am not quite sure what he was......some kinda mexican bandit. I was a mexican resturant waitress. He grew out his facial hair and used my mascara to darken it. He needs to work on his sounded more chinese then spanish.

I love it when other adults dress up.....this is my Grandpa, he was Johnny Cash.

These two....Evel Knievel and the Bandito.

Jayden got lots of monster trucks

And a giant dry erase coloring book.....and he even shared.

Can you tell who wanted their picture taken the whole time???? He has like 10 others I didn't put in.
Back to Jayden...
He is a very crazy little guy. He understands jokes, he can tease back. He loves to ride his bike in the house (which is ok as long as he doesn't have mud on the tires). He wants to be as big as his brothers, and thinks that he already is. He loves to sleep in our bed and snuggle up close. Which I would kick him out but he is so darn cute....I can't. He loves to give us hugs and kisses all the time, and always says, " I wub you mom".
