We had some visitors over and of course A and E were bouncing off the walls. Head butting their legs, jumping on their back and freaking out. So I chucked them both in the kitchen and told them, "You are out of control." Angrily A turns to me, hands on his hips and snaps, "No Mom! YOU are out of control!"

A comes up to me and tells me very officially, "Mom, I'm smarter than you. I'm not smarter than Dad, but I am smarter than you."

A and E were wrestling today and it was A's day. He was doing really good keeping his little brother subdued, although E put up a pretty good fight. Once they were finished, Daddy and I told E he did a really good job! He looked over at Daddy M angrily from the floor and said, "No, I din not!!" he flailed his arms on the ground and continued, "He's still alive!"

E and A were playing T-ball today with A's new gear. I of course laid down the rules. No hitting anyone with the bat. No swinging at the ball until every body and body part is clear. Simple enough. Not 5 minutes into it, I hear a blood curdling scream from A. E runs inside, eyes big, and says, "I din'n know what I was doing!" Big brother had a pretty good goose egg on his head.

Carvings Part II

Pumpkin carving is serious business. It's SO serious, in fact, that it deserves a whole second post... and possibly a 3rd, once I actually take a picture of our other "stair-ee!" pumpkin. Fall has to be one of my favorite seasons purely for the fact that we have SO many holidays that follow Halloween! We get Thanksgiving! Christmas! and New Years!! It's great!

The pumpkin you see her is Aunt Ms and As pumpkin.... and yes, he actually did choose that pattern. Although, I'm pretty sure that he didn't know what he was picking out at the time.

The last two photos are my favorites. The one with As dorky smile in it had a conversation that went a little something like this, "Smile normal A".... "No! A not like that! Just smile normal for now." ..."A we can do a silly picture next, cummon!" . . . after a few minutes of frustration from Aunt M and I as we try to make the 3 year old smile like everyone else, I came up to him with my fingers in 'flick' pose to see if the idea of getting him in trouble would make him listen.... it didn't.... it actually produced the next picture. That would be As. "I've just been threatened" face and by the looks of it, he thinks I may have blackmailed him, cut off his teddy's thumb and mailed it to him with a note saying, "you're next if you don't send the money!" Aunt M is just going with the flow and following As lead. :) ....or maybe she's his body guard and that's the "I'm going to shank you if you come closer" look.

We have a lot of looks in this family. It can get confusing to translate sometimes.

Luckily we have you to do the translation for us... oftherwise we would be confused forever. That is one scary looking pumpkin. Whatever happened to the nice triangle eyes and crooked mouth bit??
It looks like fun. Our pumpkin that got carved was the Superman sign. Not too scary this year.
