Lots of fun!

Teague plays so hard now that when he crashes, he really crashes! He is just a very busy little baby!
This picture makes me laugh. Carter looks so happy, and Ave is doing her whiny face. "I don't want to get my hair washed first!". I'm pretty sure that's what was going on!
Landon and Carter are getting very brave about getting their faces wet. They both were dumping water on their heads that night.
Happy Teague in the crazy yellow water - I think we have a picture almost exactly like this from a couple weeks ago!
I Love this pose! She totally looks like a rock star!
The family band. They were really jamming out the other night. It was pretty awesome! Erica took a video I think. If she did, I'll steal it from her blog later!
There's the singer. He really does love the sound of his voice in those microphones. I took a video just last night, so it will be on next week's blog. He's a very talkative guy lately!
Mr. Naked Boy went all the way up the stairs the other night. Sometimes he stops for a rest - guess it's time to put the gate up again!
Every once in a while Carter and Ave like to watch a movie together at bed time. I was in there turning off the movie when Carter rolled over and put his arm over her. How cute is that?
4 crazy kids at Poppa's house. Teague decided he really likes pear juice (as you can see from his shirt - he was trying to chug the whole cup down!).
Ave sat behind him...just in case he fell over. What a helpful sister, and what a lucky little brother!
Time to model our new winter hats - We had a couple of freezing cold windy days last week. Here's the Frog!
Here's a handsome big boy!
Here's a gorgeous pink puppy dog!
Mom got a toy magazine in the mail on Saturday. These two spent about two hours looking at everything in there. They've decided they want...everything in there. They even brought it to dinner to keep browsing!
She was thinking about wearing some of her bumblebee stuff to a birthday party on Sunday. She did change her mind eventually. I'm just glad she's finally agree to be a bumblebee for Halloween! I was getting worried.
It was Brooklyn Zahler's first birthday. The big kids (Ave, Carter, Landon, Reese, and Riley) all go to daycare together. They enjoyed the Minnie Mouse cake.
Brooklyn was too cute! She had a Minnie Mouse tutu on and tried to feed Geah most of her cake. It was a fun party.
Last but not least, yesterday was gorgeous! I really hope we can go outside for a little trick-or-treating. We'll see. Teague had a nice stroller ride to the park and had a fabulous time crawling in the grass. What a good little man I have!

2 videos (per Kelsie's request)

This first one is Boo singing her peanut song. Once she gets going, she says "A peanut sat on the railroad tracks, his heart blows all aflutter, Toot! Toot! Peanut Butter!" She eliminates a bit of the song, but it really makes me laugh. Especially when she sings AFlutter!


Here is my Teague giggling. He is getting to be a very silly little baby man!

Just chillin'

Teague doesn't usually mind hats on his head. This is the one he was supposed to wear in Deer Lodge last week. Hopefully this bodes well for the Halloween costume!
It was orange day at daycare last Wednesday. Poor Ave is growing out of all her 2T clothes so she wore Carter's old dino shirt. It worked! Minus Carter's goofy face, this is pretty cute!
Teague's favorite thing right now is to get hold of a magazine and rip! Luckily Avery didn't see him rip up her doll magazine. It was only one page before I caught him.
Carter hardly ever just stands there for me anymore. He's getting so big, and of course so handsome!
Ave and Grandma colored some window stickers together. They look lovely. Ave is a very careful colorer as you can see!
All of a sudden my boy decided he could write his name. This is his first try. Not bad! He wrote it for Jordan the next day 10 times! I'm just glad he wants to. He'd much rather be playing.
Erica said she would print a coloring page of whatever the kids wanted off the computer. Landon picked Ultimate Humongasaur (from Ben 10), Carter went with a shark, and Ave picked a refridgerator! I think it's because Dad said he wanted a cement truck. She's just makes me laugh! She told me she wanted one like ours...with the freezer on top!
Before swimming...with his lovely rolls!
After swimming...totally passed out. Swimming wears a cute baby man out!
Yesterday my friends Michelle (who was in from Vegas) and Ritter came over. We had so much fun! So did the kids. They get along so well. We could hear them back in Ave's room just laughing and laughing. Carter and Madisyn were silly. Carter was making "sugar wood pies" (whatever those are), and Madisyn was pretending to throw "30 hundred thousand" of them at me!
Mason is my little buddy. He's just so sweet. He came and sat on my lap for awhile. He brought me many cups of coffee too, sometimes it was "fockee" which made me laugh!
Teague had a great time watching everyone and doing puzzles. He was a Mama's boy though and wouldn't let anyone else hold him. He had fun on the Cars train tracks. He was being the Teagie Monster and snatching everyone's cars off the rails!
Last but not least, a nice hug goodbye. My kids were passed out about two seconds after everyone left. All that playing finally caught up with them. What a fun day!

Pumpkin fun!

I teased Erica about stealing a picture yesterday...so I stole one from her. This bubble bath one is just so cute. Look at those faces!

Another bath picture. Teague decided to have an extremely dirty diaper the other night. So dirty that we tried the sink bath for the first time. He loved it! He couldn't even look he was so busy splashing!
I love this picture. Teague is pulling himself up on everything! It's even better when you pull yourself up and see your big brother smiling at you!
We went to bring Michael Peck a late birthday present. All the kids had a great time playing together. Teague was especially happy!
All the kids playing together - Mike, Shamus, Avery, Molly, Teague, and Carter. Ave is way back with Molly's shopping cart. It was hard to get them to sit still - they really played well!
Mom got him these hilarious "Lil Devil" pajamas. The feet absolutely kill me. As you can see my busy guy has a little bruise on his head. He tried to climb the bookshelf at daycare and had a bonk!
This is his "I'm coming to get you" face. I love it - so sneaky!
Mom found these glasses at Safeway - there were about four pairs actually. They are hilarious! Avery loved them.
I almost forgot to take a picture of Teague on the 13th. So instead of a crazy, crawling guy, we have a sleepy guy. I can't believe he's 8 months old already!

On Sunday, we went to Deer Lodge for the Grant Kohr's Ranch Pumpkin Festival. It was so much fun, although it was very rainy. We went to the Pumpkin Patch first - Lando picked out a great one!
Ave picked out one just her size. I was so happy my girl got to go this year! Last year she was sick. I was happy we got pumpkins too. Last year they were completely gone when we arrived.
It was a perfect day for raincoats! Carter was so distracted by a giant pile of hay that he couldn't bother to look at me. There were a lot of people there despite the weather.
Mr. Teague would not leave anything on his head. We thought he was going to be miserable in the rain, but he was so happy. He made his happy little Teague sounds the whole time we were there!
These three were so funny while we were waiting for our tractor hay ride. All of a sudden there were hugs all around!
Super buds! That's what they kept saying. This whole weekend they just played and played and played!
The hay maze was a huge hit. The boys loved it. Ave got scared (because some older kids were pushing and running and almost knocked her over...while their parents watched...nice), but she went through with me and loved it too!
The carnival games were lots of fun. There was ring toss, horseshoes, fishing, and this beanbag toss. Lando made his on the third try. Carter took a bit longer since he was underhand throwing at first!
Ave won a cool red frog on the fishing game - Landon won a yellow bracelet - and Carter won a purple dinosaur. Yay!
Pumpkin painting time! What a cute picture of Erica and Landon!
A family picture...where only Teague looks good. Oh well!
Carter's pumpkin had every color on it. Ave stuck to purple, yellow, and pink. Grandma painted one for Teague with his name and a tiny ghost.
Ave was proud of her handiwork. She is the most careful painter you'll ever see. So fun!
Last but not least, we swung by McDonalds where Teague got a nice kiss from the best sister around. What a great day!
