October is Alright


October is when newts migrate through our yard.  It's also when our house starts getting giant beetles thumping against the windows.  This is a sign that it's almost time to start hiding indoors.

Musuem Day

This is what happens when I let the little miss dress herself.  I told her she would be cold so her solution is to put on giant socks.
She loves going to the planetarium.  We pretty much see the same show every time but she's still enthralled with it.  She is still convinced she is going to Mars someday.

 Most of the games are too old for her but she doesn't care.  She played a computer game for the longest time about how much money you save when you turn off the lights.  She couldn't believe the savings!

Paper Falcon

When Guy was little, like 4ish, he would make all sorts of things out of paper.  My favorite was a paper chair.  It would not hold my weight but it looked totally functional.  Guy still makes some awesome things out of paper like this Angry Bird Millennium Falcon.

Guy Had a Birthday

Guy turned 9 last month. He got to watch cartoons with lil' bro in the morning.  I'm not sure where this rule came from but he says on your birthday you are allowed to watch as much TV as you want.  Sounds okay to me since most people would rather be celebrating than watching TV.

We took cupcakes to school for him to celebrate there and we just had a little family party after school.  As usual the siblings were super excited to give him the things they picked out for him.  Daisy picked out a Gumby and Pokey.  Nels went a sticky hand and whoopy cushion.  Classic Nels.

Guy loved his presents.  He's an excitable guy.

Daisy and me decorated an ice cream cake for him.  We need practice but the Minecraft keychains we put on top won Guy over.
