Snow on Oct. 5th

It is the beginning of Oct & we made our 1st snow man! WOW!
All ready for ..... Snow. Unbelievable. Don't worry about Rips pink gloves, it is Oct. we are'nt ready for snow. :)
Sep 26th we had Junior Miss state. Our Junior Miss did SOO great! She made the top ten & won talent. She is an amazing piano player, & represented us so well. :)

Holy Cow!!!!

So the Sponenburgs , Brett, & I are sitting at the table enjoying dinner together as we like to do a few times a week, and suddenly we hear. CRASH, BOOM, BANG, & CRASH again.
This is what we found.
My wall of black & leopard drapes are on the ground. Then we see Pyper side stepping away like she had no part in it. Then as I walk in the room Maycee is stuck in the drapes twirled up. Frozen in fear. They were so lucky that the rod didn't hit them .
The culprits watching
I love how handy my husband is. I love that when the drapes fall I don't have to wait for the people to fix it. Brett & Brad jumped right on it :)
Mission accomplished.

The only good part of this experience is how cute my son Ripken is. He was sitting in his high chair still eating and had a perfect view of the accident. He just kept repeating over and over, HOLY COW HOLY COW, Maycee & Pyper & HOLY COW! Even now as I write this post he climbed on my lap and pointed and said it again. He is too cute . I love 2 yrs. old,

Rips B-Day

Ripken turned 2 & all of our neighborhood friends came to celebrate
We had to light the candles 3 times during the song, he loves blowing out the candles.
He loves everyone undivided attention
Silly string fight!
Everyone got in on the action
Ripken got a "Bouncy Castle" as he calls it
Rip loves Lightning Mcqueen, especially the one who has his tongue out!

The set up for the mourning, Trista helped me move all the furniture out of the from room so he would se the jumper when he walked out.
We have a HUGE collection of cars, I might be a little obsessed!

Rip had an awesome birthday, with friends & family. The night before his birthday I laid him down and said guess what tomorrow is? He yelled MY BIRTHDAY, I think his sister and brother prepped him but it was so cute. Thanks to all who helped make his B-Day super special.
