Halloween was kinda, super, very unorganized this year. I was out of town for trunk or treat, so J let the kids pick a costume out of teh boxes. Same with Halloween night. I didn't even snap a shot of my younger two!!! ugh

For Christmas, 3 of us got new bikes. So now we can go on bike rides with these two little monkies on the front and back of Jase's bike. THEY LOVE bundling up and going for rides. They were patiently waiting….for about an hour, for the rest of us to get ready for a bike ride. They just sat on Vivian's blanket, and got up and threw a ball on the roof for a bit…then sat back down. I asked them to give each other a big hug so I could snap a cute pic….it turned out hilarious….

Ok, first off, I'm going to start with a slight insensitivity. Or maybe just full lack of compassion. But I've had TOO many mom friends complain about how they have so much to do, or they're stressed out, or, when I tell them that I'm tired of ending my day feeling overwhelmed and depressed they say, oh yea, me too. Fine, sure, maybe they do…but it's always the ones that have either a "mommy helper" (a high school or college girl that comes and helps them with the kids, or housework, or cooking, or JUST A GROWN UP TO TALK TO!…and these are much more common than I had thought), and the ones that have housekeepers at least once a month…usually the mom friends that have both. By NO means am I against either of these…in fact, I'm completely jealous of both….but there are LOTS of us out there, that can't afford either and have to be the full time mom, the one that 100% cleans the house, makes the meals, takes her kids grocery shopping, takes her kids everywhere she goes all week long….I do believe that makes the days a bit harder. I love it, and 99% of the time I want my kids with me….but to have someone come WITH me and my kids once a week or so and just help out…or to have someone, once a month come and help me get caught up on the house…yea, I'd feel a little more accomplished and a little less tired.
Now on to cuter things. I made my girls wear their cute matchy dresses/pants one last time before they both out grown them. Kam's dress is getting too tight and Bib's pants are. I just love these two. I'm so glad they have each other!!

Danica and I decided to take the kdis to the park for a bit to wear them out before we headed home. This little monkey kept climbing to the top of EVERYTHING! She has no fear AT ALL! It's hilarious, but freaks me out!

This last week we spent 4 or 5 days up in Taylor. One of the days Grandma set it up for us to go pick apples at her friend's orchard. The kids loved it. There were some spots with LOTS of bees, and some spots where the branches were so packed with apples that they were almost on the grass. Vivvian mostly pointed out the ones for us to pick.Pearcen mostly climbed the trees….
