And the Winner of the Pumpkin Contest Is..............

Not Macie...But she got 3rd place and was very excited. Way to go Macie!!! There were many many cute pumpkins, so we're very excited she placed. Her prize was a book of her choice and a certificate. The Hungry Caterpillar was 1st, then some lizard or something that was very good got 2nd (which probably shoulda won, but no one asked me to judge (0:

This video is Macie's teacher announcing her greatness.

Remember here is our "pinkalicious" pumpkin

Halloween Parties

Today was a busy, but fun day for my kids. The boys went on a field trip to the pumpkin patch, then lunch at the park. Followed up by a party in their classroom with cupcakes, crafts and goody bags. Macie also had her Halloween Party also. Much more on Macie in the next post.

Class Quilt Part 2

Remember back on the post of the quilt piece? Well here is Macies. We covered her square piece in materials from hand made outfits my mom has made. The class quilt was cute!

This evening the kids and Jason carved our pumpkin while I made cookies..
Macie and Eli helped get some (which amounted to about 5) seeds outta the pumpkin. Austin was the only one who didn't mind slimy hands.

TA-DA!!!!! Frankstein!!!

Looks fake I know, but I swear it's real!!
Up next: Awesome soccer pictures (if any) and Halloween

Student of the Month

This month Austin was chosen "Student of the Month". Here Austin is with our wonderful principal.

Here's my boy. Don't let this picture fool you, though. I had to beg for this smile. He doesn't like a lot of attention drawn to himself.

I took Macie's pumpkin to school today and it was a HUGE hit. Girls out in the hall were all talking about it as I walked by and Macie's teacher loved it. We brought our "A Game" today :0) In all fairness there were some good ones, but nothing like ours (of course). Just kidding.............kinda.......................

Pumpkin Decorating Contest

First off, I forgot to get a picture of Macie's quilt piece. I'm hoping the quilt will be put together and on display in a few days. If so, I'll take a picture then.
Macie's class and a few others are having a pumpkin decorating contest representing their favorite book character. Macie picked the book "Pinkalicious". I've fixed her ponytails since these pictures so they stick out a little more. I'm hoping Macie wins!!

Up next: 1) Austin's student of the month breakfast

Classroom Project

Macie's class is doing an author study of Patricia Polacco and one of the books they're reading is "The Keeping Quilt" by Patricia Polacco - who is phenomenal btw!. Her class is constructing a quilt from construction paper with each square representing a student. I can't wait to post Macie's.
Stay tuned for her square and pumpkin decorating contest!

We Love BDays

Today was daddy's birthday, so here's a few pictures of the "opening of presents".

I made the kids agree on a cake and this is what they agreed on, but that didn't last long. Thank goodness we made it out the door before Eli wanted something else.

Here was Jason's reaction to the cake picture - lol!!


I'm Dun Playin

Just wanted to share these pictures from Saturday's game, because well..... they're good pictures.

This pictures speaks a thousand words to me. He was working hard, wasn't getting much help and missing a very good player. This was right after he scored I believe his first outta 4 goals. I"M DUN PLAYIN'

Step Aside Boys.....

Again, Eli played Mondays game w/0 his brother and played amazingly. The boy was so fast it was ridiculous! See Eli at the very back and notice 3 orange shirts ALL AROUND. It was like this every time Eli played. Don't ask me where the rest of the team was.

Now he's bigger than me, stronger than me, and he's older than me, and stronger than me, and his arms are a little bit longer than me. (I pulled these lyrics from a JB song featuring Jaden Smith.)

Poor Eli was ssssooo tired, but he never gave it up! Awesome lil guy!

Hat Day'10

We saw some huge and interesting hats today, but everyone seemed to enjoy the day.

She scores-He hurt his foot

Macie played in a jamboree this weekend for a charity event and scored her first goal of the season. It's tougher this year because there is a goalie and it's 8 vs 8 AND it's coed. I took one picture of her breaking out (which is what she does), then I have the ball going past the goalie (who was a boy) then I have this picture.
It's a miracle I have the 3 pictures that I have because if you know me, you know that I was yelling my loudest (which is loud) and jumping up and down cheering. And to top it all off Macie says she only hears Jason cheering for her. WHAT!? I'm making a fool of myself and I'm by far louder than Jason. hmpf!
On another note - Austin has hurt his foot and probably won't be able to play soccer for awhile.
