Building Towers

Evan likes to tell me all the time he needs more trains. I was a little surprised when he told me to go to the store and buy some right away. 

Hailey wanted one train and someone didn't feel like sharing. Hailey finally just took one and Evan got mad a threw a wood train at her head and left a nice bump.

I went to her Sheri Dew speak on women and the Priesthood tonight.  (And No, I have absolutely no issues with how the Church is running things.) Steve stayed home with the kids.  I hear they built lot's of towers. 

The   kids were good until bath-time. Then Steve got a heavy dose of what tired grumpy children who can't be consoled are like. It get's old after a few hours. Such is life... I was glad to come home and find all the little ones asleep.

While Hailey takes a much needed nap. . . . . .

Evan loves yogurt. I always get tears when I tell him "no more."

Maybe if I puff out my chest my mom will say yes.

The targets.

His new favorite thing to do with the trains.... run over duplo people.

He really gets into it.

Now he will set the guys up and we will do this another 100 times.

 He told me this was an airplane he made.

The sound effects are terrific.

Even better are the conversations he has between the duplo people. 
"You're not my friend anymore. You're a bad guy forever."

Trains are a great toy because every-time we get them out we build something new and exciting.

Helping clean up.

Sometimes it's the little things that are exciting. Caught a lady bug in the windowsill.

Shrieks of delight over who got to hold it first. 

We released him in the neighbors kale while he was still living.
Sometimes bugs we are holding die because we are too rough with them.

An afternoon with Judy.

Getting a little vitamin d.

Wooden of the best toys!

Our guest of honor has arrived.

Time to catch her and  throw her in the grass dungeon.

As you can see....he means business!

Attack! No mercy here.

Horsing Around

Pretending to be horses.

Busy building towers.

What a face!

Looks like the fairies decided to visit. They left a note that said, "Welcome to October!"

They left a new book and maple creme cookies.

Everyone loves a story about a friendly dragon.

Happy Birthday Nana!

Watching a movie at Nana's on a beanbag chair on top of the recliner.

Happy Birthday Nana!

Hailey "How old is Nana?"
Me "I don't know. How old do you think she is?"
Hailey "27"
Me "Sounds good to me."

The candy rocket launcher. Shoots candy and small toys way up into the sky. Plenty of candy/toys landed in the neighbor's yard.

It was a little on the loud side.

Evan said "I don't like it."

Hooray! Halloween bags full of treats and Halloween books from Nana!

The kids were so excited!
