Two Babies In One

My brother and his wife are expecting twins and it has not been an easy pregnancy. She’s been on bedrest practically since the beginning and every day those babies stay tucked safe inside is a praise so it was a big deal to celebrate with a shower on January 8th.

Her Aunt Cindy threw a beautiful shower at her house and they were spoiled with lots of baby supplies and clothes and diapers!

 

Can’t wait (but can cause they need to keep cooking for at least another month or so) to meet these little guys and kiss and snuggle them!

Uncle Bill and Aunt Liz Visit

Jeremy’s Uncle was in town celebrating an anniversary with his wife and they stopped by for dinner with Don & Terri and we joined in. I can’t remember the last time we saw them or if Kingston had met them before, but Zekie hadn’t and he was ready to make up for lost time. He was super chatty and wanted Uncle Bill to play with him right away. Not that Z is ever shy, but there was no hesitation at all and he wanted all their attention. Maybe he felt a “younger brother” bond with him, since Uncle Bill is Grandpa’s younger brother. 😛

Happy Halloween 2016

Happy Halloween! This year it fell on a Monday and we had some errands to run to get Kingston ready to start speech at school later in the week so the morning was spent checking things off that list. We had a little bit of extra time between two stops where we were able to fit in a little park time, which is always a plus with the boys. They ran, and climbed and slided the last bit of morning hours away. I’m not sure if it was sprinklers or still morning dew, but Harbor managed to find a big puddle of water at the bottom of a slide and then spent the rest of the time walking around with a wet butt. Thank goodness for diapers, or he would have felt really uncomfortable!

After Dr. Erin’s, and lunch, Harbor went down for his nap and the boys and I did a little Halloween crafting. We made hand spiders which turned out cute (and so easy, which is all I can handle craft wise these days!) and they colored masks. Zeke picked out a pumpkin mask and Kingston picked out a Frankenstein mask (which went along with the Frankenstein Make and Take Lego event we did on Saturday).

Homemade Masks

It wasn’t long after we finished our crafts that family started arriving for dinner. But first, right before we ate we got to find out that Arthur and Nicole’s twins are two BOYS! Can’t get a girl in this family to save our lives. ;P The two newbies will fit right in with the rest of our crazy bunch!

We scarfed down Papa John’s pizza and salad and it was finally time to get ready to go! Kingston had been set on being Batman for months. He never wavered. Zekie wanted to be Spiderman, but had also changed his mind to 30 other things. We thought it would be fun if he was Robin. It took some talking Robin up, the sidekick, but he came around to the idea. At first he would tell people he was going to be Sidekick. LOL, he thought that was his name. By that night he was excited to get dressed and show his costume off. Kingston on the other hand, had a meltdown when trying to get dressed. I guess I should have seen it coming, because he has had his fair share of getting dressed for Halloween meltdowns, but he was so excited about his costume, it just never occurred to me that he would be our problem. Just when you think you’re safe. 😛 He wanted to wear his clothes under his costume and we wouldn’t let him. It is too hot to wear clothes under a full body suit, even when it is a thin material. In the time it took us to talk him off the ledge, Zekie, Harbor, Mason and Jeremy got ready. I finally was able to get him to put on his outfit sans clothes, by just him and I going into the bathroom alone so no one would see him get dressed and he could surprise everyone with his costume. Phew! Thought we were going to have to leave him at home til he changed his mind. We happened to have some Superman pjs we were able to stuff Harbor into (barely, like a little sausage) which we paired with his Superman cape from Z’s last birthday party. Our Superhero trio was complete. The boys wanted a Cat Woman and apparently had mentioned it to Grandma Kennedy too, because we both wore black and cat ears. Haha. Kingston picked out mine and my mask, which also had ears, so I had double the ears. He just liked the mask because it had whiskers! I ended up ditching it halfway around trick or treating, it was getting too hot on my face, which I was not alone on cause both Z and K ditched theirs too.

We attempted a picture of the group before we headed out, but 4 boys and 50 pictures later…let’s just say they are all “action” shots. 😉

At the first house, Harbor was so cute walking up to the house with the other boys and getting candy in his bag. As he walked back he couldn’t believe he had gotten something in his bag and pulled out a Twizzler pack and kept playing with it. He was very excited about it, I think he liked the sound, he wouldn’t let it go. Precious baby. He walked some, was carried some, and rode in the stroller some, he did great.

There didn’t seem to be as many kids out this year or houses participating either. A few houses told the boys to take what they wanted and they weren’t shy about doing just that! Haha. Zekie got a little twisted with his words at the beginning and at one of first few house a lady opened the door with the candy bowl and he blurted out, “I want candy!”. Oh geez, then as he walked away he said, “trick or treat”. LOL

We made it down our street and turned onto another one when Kingston took a spill and tore his costume at his knee. Then began mini meltdown #2 as he wanted to strip out of his costume right there in the street since it now had a hole. Jeremy was able to hid it by pulling his boot up a little higher and saved the day. Later he found he also had ripped it at his elbow, thankfully he didn’t realize that while we were out too. We made it down that street and the other cul de sac before Zekie was done and we headed back home.

Kingston was excited to show Grandma Kennedy a trick for a treat at our house. My Dad, Terri and Nicole had stayed back to pass out candy but they said there had been maybe 4 or so groups, and there weren’t but two or 3 more after we got home, so we had lots of candy left over to go with our bags of collected candy.

The boys ate a few pieces and had a cupcake Grandma Kennedy had brought over and then played for a bit until everyone left.

A few little set backs but a great, fun Halloween nonetheless! The boys were adorable and had a lot of fun!

Indoor Driving

The boys have a vintage power wheel type of car that Jeremy’s Aunt Toni gave him years ago (because Jeremy’s first car was a VW bug). Jeremy repainted it yellow to go with the room and now the boys drive it around and around the house with a little help from each other.

Mother’s Day 2016

For Mother’s Day this year, on May 8th, my cuties gave me some cards they made and then we went to church where they each picked out a different color flower to give me (well Kingston picked out one for Harbor ;).  And then we spent the afternoon at my parents’ house swimming and eating.

 

The boys made these for me at church. Zeke colored 2.

Back home:

Summer Friends

While on a neighborhood ride we ran into our neighbor Kevin and his dog Riley which the kids love.

Just so happened to have the new Lomo’instant camera and captured the moment.

Wedding Nails

The night before my little bro’s wedding, my Mom planned a girls night of pampering at a local nail salon for my soon to be sister in law, Nicole. The salon closed down and it was just us, the wine and snacks my Mom brought in, and 27 Dresses playing on the tvs. It was a fun, relaxed (at least for me ;P) evening hanging out with Nicole, her sister Hayley, my Grandma, Mom, and Aunt.
