pumpkin anniversaries and halloween recap

Last week I dragged the boys to the pumpkin patch to celebrate the one year pumpkinversary announcing our second pregnancy. It's true, the time flies. I am sappy sad at the very thought.  Lucky for us the weather was very warm by afternoon so we could all go sockless and in sandals. Can you believe the size of those pumpkins? And the day after Halloween they were GIVING THEM away! You bet I filled up every spot in my vehicle not taken by a stroller or a car seat. I love pumpkins for the whole fall, not just October.

  In order to coax the boys into their bumblebee gear we used toys, pleas, and finally m&ms. Baby A was not remotely interested in sharing anything with his brother. Photographic chaos resulted. IMG_0886 
 Even though it was a herculean task to get these little bees to cooperate we wanted to document the cuteness.  



We resorted to different seating arrangements and it worked out better.

oh my, where has the time gone?

We haven't posted in a few months because of the obvious problem- two boys = very busy. But a happy busy it is most of the time. Unless everyone is tired, dirty and hungry...
 We had a nice family visit to Galveston this summer. If you follow us on instagram you might have seen our summer adventures involving watermelon, pools and ice cream.
And of course we do some running around in the yard and parks each day we can, too. Looking forward to fall weather so we can be outside more often without so many bugs and so much heat. Hope you are doing well! Hello from all of us.
baby A is almost three! 
and baby B is 8 months

both worth celebrating everyday. let's have a cupcake.

Ahh, brotherly love. 

Guess the brother game

I was lucky to get some of Baby A's clothes back from a good friend for Baby B! Such fun to compare them at about the same age.

Who is who? Answers at the end of the post...

We play ball and take a bath

Thought you might want to see some boys having lots of fun! If only they were this cheerful all of the time.

Progress on the work in progress, the boys get a room in the old house

We wanted the boys to have their very own room to share when the baby came home from the hospital. That didn't work out since Bennett came earlier than expected, but the newly renovated bedroom for the two boys was really worth the wait. This was originally our master bedroom. We still have some finishing touches to work on, but we all like spending time in this great new room. 
Kudos to Daddy for working hard to get it done.

Because the boys are sharing a room one has a twin bed and one has a crib, and mama has a couch and rocking chair to deal with each of them. We were blessed to receive the lovely original artwork above from Kathy, a family friend. We've been looking for nautical things to compliment it ever since!
Where'd we get all this stuff?

Egg smashing with cousins, we are so egg-cited!

We had loads of fun with our cousins yesterday. Baby A learned to smash confetti eggs with his foot since he wasn't quite able to smash them by throwing them. Thank you Aunt Julie for so much eggy fun. Today Aengy found a big fuzzy rabbit eared friend in his bed and he couldn't wait to show Daddy.

yay, Easter cupcakes.

We are cupcake obsessed. They are an easy and fun way to brighten our day. True, any sweet brings out the pearly whites, but if they have a theme I also get a, "WOW". 
To make the nests I raided the pantry and found the last of the pretzels and some Oatmeal Squares cereal. We used chocolate Easter candy and good old jelly beans. Now if I can only limit him to one.

Right after I took these pictures he stuck his finger in one.
