A bunch of Random Photos...and things I don't want to forget

This is what happens when you dress the kids for the day, then one has a blowout so you change subconsiously dress them exactally alike without realizing it:)
Jay and I with our Broncos hats on:
I love this picture of Jay in his monster towel before bedtime
It seems like all the best pictures of the boys together have been on the floor. Although it doesn't hurt that Jay has a sucker in his hand. (I told him we were going to the bank and he got really excited for the sucker..but we were just dropping some things off because the bank is closed and I let him have his sucker at home to lessen the stickyness-in-the-car factor.)
Another floor picture where Jay is surrounded by his favorite things: Milk,Monkey, and Andy.
Andy is SOOOO teething. Notice the drool. Notice him especially loving sucking on anything with rough edges.
Jay and I built a snowman on the picnic table. I didn't know what to use for the face so I got out some candy:)
We went to a trick or treat thing in town. They fed us pizza! Jay loved being Manning and he was the only one there.
Some of the scarry scenes were exciting to look at.
Andy is the football (not a skeleton if you thought that). Jay looks adorable in this picture.
Of course his favorite game to play at the carnival type party was the throwing of the football. And YES, he did make it in once.
We went with the neighbors:
Race car driver, Tinkerbell, Payton Manning, Football
I have been working on some fall decorations and am figuring out how to arrange this correctly with lights and leaves. Yippee Ikea stuff:)
Jay singing a favorite echo song. He is way better at it now- and once he sees that I am filming he starts acting goofy. Andy is going to start crawling any day. This has been his favorite position the last We borrowed the "rollersaucer" from Cherry again and it took Andy about a week, but we were able to start racing already:) Oh the giggles: A preview of more sillyness to come later this week:

Pumpkin Patch 2012

It was a bit cold and windy, but there was still plenty of sun and fun! Andy barely fits in this pumpkin costume that Jay and Liva wore, but we squeezed him in it.
Did you see andy crying?
Andy was super happy when we grandma was holding him.
I can't figure out who's smile is more cheezy:)

Planning the costumes

I saw this halloween costume idea when I was pregnant with Andy and I thought it was adorable:
When Jay got a Manning Jersey (from TJ Maxx for 12.99) and we got some hand-me down football pants from my sister, I decided we could make it happen. I found a brown onsie at the ARC, a brown hat at once upon a child, and some pads for Jay's costume at goodwill. Now I need to figure out how to finish off the costumes. I took some pictures to help me decide what to do next.
I call this one "fumble" because the football got away from him.
So far I have searched for a helmet, but have not found anything that is even remotely light enough to stay on his head. I looked for kleats, but I don't think they make them that he may just wear tennis shoes. I plan on finding some of those under the eye tatoos for Jay, and cutting off the lower arm part of the pads he is wearing because they just a bit too bulky. For Andy I probably want to make the center strip of masking tape a bit thinner. I never imagined he would be this chunky at 5 months, but he is still adorable:) What else could I do to round out the costumes?

Sayings and Phrases video

As an assignment for my masters class I needed to make a video, but didn't have a lot of requirements. I decided I wanted it to be something my students could learn from, and I wanted Jay to be in it. The first graders at my school (Core Knowledge School) need to learn specific sayings and phrases. We usually create powerpoints, but our server has been having issues and we are behind. I created this video to help them understand the sayings and phrases. I also filmed them saying the phrases and used the audio. Enjoy. I can't figure out why it is off centered. Here is the link to the youtube clip where it is right HERE.
