Pajama Day at school and backyard fun

 Striking a pose! They had a Polar Express Day at school where all the kids were able to wear their pajamas. She loved it!

 Testing out my new lens I got as an early Christmas present!
 Working on focus with blurry background... my subjects had some funny faces while eating blueberries!

 They were pretty curious as to what their sister was up to in that tree.

I am sure that Davis was providing whatever back-up his sister needed.  
Love backyard days!

 We are ready to eat!
 The Tomlinson Family
 Watching the Texas game while the kids were...
 eating grilled cheese sandwiches and jello topped with whipped cream.
Meme was a hero that night!
Grace Ann and Jack
Sweet Gemma!

Cousin Out Takes!

 Trying to get 5 Cousins to all smile and look the same way is near impossible!
These are a few of my favorites that I took for my mom for her Christmas card.

My first ever apple pie! It tasted so good and was super easy to make!

 Silly boys!

Mr. Davis

20 months old
25 # 12 oz.
Not sure on the height, but he is in the 90th %

Don't let that sweet smile fool you, this boy is a mess! Just kidding, he is pretty precious, just full of energy and getting into everything.  Presently, he loves to swiffer the floor, or should I say swing it around his head and hopefully he misses mine, Grace Ann's and Henry's heads.  

His favorite things right now are:
  • dump trucks, trains, and well, basically trucks
  • playing outside and going down his three step slide
  • playing pretend "trick or treat" with his plastic pumpkin
  • he likes to use sidewalk chalk to decorate our house and furniture, I enjoyed cleaning that mess up today
  • loves his brother and sister to pieces 
His accomplishments are:
  • being independent and wants to do most things himself
  • can use the spoon and fork by himself, but still messy
  • talks and talks, uses 2 and 3 word phrases
  • likes to say down, when he means up (mostly when he is on the stairs)
  • pretends to stand and go potty like his big brother and he gets so proud of himself, even when he is not going to the bathroom
  • can point to things and tell me what he sees or hears, especially the loud Air Force planes
  • can feed Oscar, supervised of course!
I have really enjoyed this stage with Davis because he is just into exploring his world and loves to just be included in what we are all doing.  Despite his will to "do" it his way, he really is pretty easy and most of the time happy.  These last two months he has gotten 4 new teeth, so that has been difficult for his sleeping and for his parents!  But I think it on the downward slope, so hoping sleep resumes to normal.  
I can't wait to see what this month and the holidays will bring us with Davis! I hope he likes Santa Claus this year!

Random October pictures!

 Henry started pre-school! He loves going and that makes us so happy!
 Yes, I am that parent that gives my 19 month old a bag of chips to eat on the way home from Subway!
But, oh how precious he looks, melts my heart!
 Our reveal cake! Russ and I already knew what we were having, I just made the cake for the kids and our family to celebrate! More on this later!
 One Sunday, after church and after a nap, cuddling on the couch with these three is the best!
Homework time!
