Some J time!

Makenna had her last soccer practice on Monday and Maysie went to her cousins house to play for a bit, so I took Jaeli and Jace to the splash pad and park in Ossian. They always have fun going and got along well!

Pudding and Raisins

This boy! Since he was born, he has been a "snacker". Getting him to sit down and eat a meal has always been a challenge. It got to the point where I have to choose my battles and this is one I choose not to fight. Why? Well because he is healthy, he is very active and he usually makes healthy food choices. He usually eats a bowl of cereal in the morning and that's about the only full meal he will eat. Lunch and Dinner are always very little. He has about 3 small snacks in between. His favorite foods... Lettuce with ranch, tomatoes, peppers, green beans, broccoli, apples, kiwi, pickles, and even beets. He prefers any of those over spaghetti or meat and potatoes, pasta, and so much more.

We went to pizza hut today for lunch. He ate half a piece of pizza, a salad with cheese, tomato, peppers, and onion with ranch of course. For dessert... Pudding with raisins. Yuck!

Jaeli Time

It was Jaeli's turn for one-on-on time Tuesday. She's always pretty easy when it's her turn. We went shopping, then came home and made dinner and then she played with her new toy for a while. Then we just watched some TV. Pretty simple. Oh and she went outside and played with Cooper for a while too. He enjoyed that!

Park Fun

Got the kids out of the house the other day and took her them to the park. They always love going! And are always upset when I tell them it's time to go. They got to play with their cousin Alexander and even their aunt Jarilyn who they kept asking for to swing then instead of me! I guess she does it better! Jace of course was a monkey and climbed a little too high and a little too crazy on certain things. My heart jumped a beat a couple times.

J and Maysie time!

Makenna and Jace went with Josh and they're aunt to a car thing over the weekend so the other two and I went to Dairy Queen for dinner and ice cream and even revered a coupe movies. They enjoyed the alone time... and I enjoyed the quietness!

It's so cute to see the differences between the two of them. I really think they are Mirror Image twins. That really is a thing! Jeli is right-handed and Maysie is Left-Handed. Their smiles drupe on the opposite side, and one likes ketchup and one likes mustard!

Pumpkin Practice

We will be going camping in a few weeks for Halloween. It will be our longest camping trip yet. So I am trying to come up with some activities for the kids to do. But one of the main activities at the campground is painting pumpkins. Their are paint is always very runny and it's always so cramped in the Pavilion so this year we are going to do it at our campsite with our own paint. We have never won mainly just because they're paint sucks so this year the girls are hoping to win! So the other day we practiced what we are going to paint to make sure the paint we are going to buy will work well. They are very excited!

More Soccer

Only a couple soccer games left. Makenna is doing great though for being her 3rd year. This last game was the first game they got their butts kicked 5 to 0. They haven't practiced in a while though so that might be why. I will be curious as to whether or not she plays next year. We will see!
