wip 10.13.12

{i apologize. have a ben field trip coming up and it's gonna be out of chronological order. hoping nick will do the words to go with the pictures soon...}


changed my routine up, so i could pick ben up from daycare. nick was going to be helping my brother get a purchase home from the store. kevin ended not needing nick's car, so we decided to take a red mango stop! i'm becoming a yogurt junkie. seriously. so good.

came so close to getting the nutty potion. but changed my mind last minute...

mine is on the right. banana. with mini dark chocolate chips, mango boba, and waffle chips. deee-licious! ben's, shockingly, was vanilla with candy corn and lucky charms. ;)

then we came home and colored.

ben saw that i was taking a picture and stopped to make a face. he kills me. i laugh every time i look at this picture. such a ham!

he asked to watch his favorite, team umizoomi, for a bit before bed. and then asked if he could 'please play in the clothes' that nick brought me to fold.

changed positions. i guess it's more comfy to pill the clothes and use them as a pillow...

learning time. letter practicing. gotta figure out new ways to get him into drawing/writing. if only iron man would have helped me! :)

took ben to see hotel transylvania in the afternoon. he was all for the popcorn! love that they give you a little bag for the wee ones.


short stuff.

halfway through, ben asked to go home. told him we were finishing the movie. then he saw some people walk out, and said, 'see momma. they are leaving.' tried to explain that they were going to the bathroom. so he wanted to go to the bathroom. nick obliged. of course, he didn't go... shocker!

we made it through the movie. it was cute. had to stop by nick's work for a bit. ben wanted to play with the chair remote.

ben walked over to the bubble wrap box, pulled some out, laid it on the floor, and began jumping on it. my kinda kid!

back home! love that he randomly pulls out his little baby books.

pardon the previous, crappy, iphone pictures. real camera photos coming up!

pumpkin carving/painting time.

kinda sucks that nick blends into the pumpkins. ah well.

someone wanted nothing to do with the pumpkin guts. i don't blame him. it's my least favorite part too!

he did it!

see, it wasn't too bad, was it ben?

took ben up to bed and nick worked on his pumpkin. convinced him to carve mine too. my grip sucks and my wrists have been awful lately, so he was a sweet husband and did mine too.

the white one, is my work pumpkin. that was a freaking process. and yay for pinterest. ;)

the boys and their gadgets. nick was trying to finalize his fantasy football line up.
i changed a few things last minute. thank goodness. only one wrong pick with all of my options. i still lost. but yay for good decisions!

celebrated nick's mom's birthday with family.
ben was a stinker.

gigi and ben and gabby. pardon the weird lighting. back to iphone pics. cannot wait for my new phone to get here!

sticker fun. he got lots of pressies for halloween. thanks gigi and aunt michelle! {aunt michelle, ben has not stopped playing with those toys. he loves them!}

play time!

was nice to sit and visit.

came home and tried to finish my pumpkin.

was very messy. and my wrist was not a fan of holding the blow dryer for extended periods of time.

did two layers in some spots. i think the wax sprayed a bit because i was too impatient to keep it on the low setting!

a view from above.

and the close ups.

glad to have tried it. might do it again... with a fake pumpkin to keep it. i'm a sucker for rainbows. what can i say?! oh and i will definitely would try crayon art. not sure i would ever have a reason... maybe the play room if we ever finish the basement?!
