We took advantage of the few minutes of sunshine that Sunday offered, and spent some time Clone-trooper/Commander Cody battling in the gravel pit near our house. (As opposed to Storm-trooper battling. While I have watched the Star Wars movies, I’m … Continue reading
There’s something special about being an Auntie. It’s a whole different kind of love, and I’m thrilled that my brother and sister-in-law gave me such a perfect little niece to experience it with!
I know I’ve said it before, but this little girl has her Auntie, Uncle and both of her cousins wrapped around her little finger!
Deklan smothers her with hugs as often as he can, and Easton calls her “my B, and your B”.
Uncle takes every opportunity he can to snuggle and make her laugh – and doesn’t even mind when she pukes all over him (like she did last night).
Yesterday was B’s first Halloween. Her Gran made her costume for her, just like my Duders Grandma made theirs.
Does it get any more perfect than a Braylie Bumble Bee!? I think not!!!
Don’tcha just wanna swoop her up in a great big cuddle and kiss those adorably huge cheeks!?
I know I do! I am one happy Auntie who LOVES her Little Bee!!
This year, my Duders were quite adamant about being Jedi’s. And holy moly, did their Grandma ever do an AMAZING job on their costumes!!
Behold, Easton as Anakin dressed as Yoda. (Catch all that? Yes, he’s basically just Yoda. But after his costume was made, he told us he wanted to be Anakin. Hence, “Anakin dressed as Yoda”.)
And Deklan dressed as Obi Wan Kenobi. Or Qui-Gon Jinn. Or Luke Skywalker. Or Mace Windu. Or whoever he decides he wants to be when it’s time to go trick-or-treating. The actual costume is Obi Wan, but who am I to tell him he can’t be a different Jedi?
I hope you and yours have as much fun as me and mine!
(And go ahead, pin those adorable Jedi’s! You know you want to!)
One of our many family traditions, is to make a trip to Galey Farms every October. Rain or shine, we cram ourselves onto the crowded hayride and get pulled by a tractor out into the muddy pumpkin patch. The boys have had mixed feelings about it over the years, but this year was a hit with both of them. We met up with E’s little pal Rhys (and his parents, of course), and together the three boys stomped around, chased each other, and sorted through hundreds of options.
And in the end, Deklan found the “perfect” pumpkin! He couldn’t have been happier, even if he did need a hand to carry it most of the way.
