Halloween 2013

this Halloween the boys picked out scary masks 
at the grocery store
Corbin also found this one piece skeleton suit

the eyes light up

Cooper was a darth vader, C3P0 mask all black dude

easy costumes this year
thanks guys for the fun
we trick or treated in our new neighborhood
for an hour
we drove the boys around 
the houses are spread out

it was a very happy halloween around here

now someone save us all from the sugar coma we are sure to have over the next few days as we over consume CANDY! ugh

 it's been awhile since I've shared iphone pics... I especially love using the fun filters on Instagram.
You can follow me there - aacurtis.
linking up with Jeanette at Life Rearranged
life rearranged  

sleepy acolyte
we have attended the 8:15 church service since these guys were really little
this one was especially tired last Sunday
I caught him sleeping on the job :)
school is a lot of work for kids these days
they are expected to do a lot even at just 7 years old
there are some evenings I can't bear the thought of more homework
so this night we went on a walk to the park instead
Corbin's been trying his hand at some potholder looms
he's done a great job
he is good at busy work projects
especially while riding in the car
this is why we can skip homework studies every once in awhile
these kids are smart
have you seen the new colorful kitchen appliances at Target
so pretty!
I love crock pots
don't need a new one but this one is so fun and colorful!
Friday spelling test time
they each have an "office" they set up to have privacy while they test
and duh keep away the wandering eyes
boys have a new pediatrician
we went for well check ups and flu mist this week
they were thrilled to have a male doctor now
they cut up together and talked like dudes do
pretty cool
I tried a new pumpkin bread recipe on Monday
oh my YUM!!
 this stuff turned out great
Check out Mel at The Larson Lingo... she has some yummy recipes
the state fair was a blast!
when I get around to it I'll do a post about the fair all it's own
good times!!

we sure had a great visit with my sister Tam
the boys are always smitten :)
happy weekending!

Friday, September 13, 2013


4 nights a week
15-20 minutes of reading
a few sentences of writing
spelling memorization
math worksheet once a week

in their undies
after dinner
before bed
spelling practice
corbin is using each word in a sentence
cooper is writing his words in rainbow fashion

this is us getting into a routine again
three weeks down
i think we got this

we are apart 10 hours a day
it sometimes seems long to the them
to all of us
the evenings are fast
the weekends are priceless

grateful for here and now
it's friday
