Sit. Stay. Heel. Treat.
you think i am talking about my doggies?
I use these commands more on my toddlers that I have to on Divot and Bella.
Oh I could laugh and cry at the same time!
Oh. here's another one that may be the most common:
"Roll over!" (to get off of your brother!)

Going from one wild boy in his 2's, immediately into another wild boy in his 2's with no break just may be my demise.
I am drained and am just praying to make it through the rest of the day...much less the weekend, much less the month, much less the year.
My nerves are shot.
I am emotionally and mentally over-exhausted.

Booboos...the life of a boy

Hunter and Kyle were playing football the other night. As Hunter was chasing Kyle he tripped and flew into the door jam...needless to say, the door jam won...

It went from looking like a pirate because his eye was swollen half shut to looking like I put some weird eye shadow on his eye, but I keep reminding myself we STIll have not had to go get stitches for either boy yet (knock on wood) which I thought would be a regular thing with boys (especially these 2 wild ones)so I consider us doing pretty good so far!
(I also had to snap these while he was eating because it is the only time he is somewhat sitting still.)
This has not phased or stopped Hunter one bit, except when he wants you to draw him (which is more often than you would think) he wants you to add a black eye on his face.

Happy 30th Birthday Sweet Kyle!

Well, today Kyle is officially no longer in his twenties. Never in my whole life have I met someone who is so happy to no longer be in his 20's! He is so happy to be 30!!!! I think it is because of work that he is thrilled to be able to say he is in his 30's, but regardless, I am just happy this is a happy occasion for him!
Kyle is:
so tough
hard working
"a guy's kind of guy"
and many other "rough" kinds of things
But he also is:
the kindest, gentlest soul I know
He is so tender hearted
He has the sweetest spirit about him
He loves his family more than anyone I have seen
He genuinely loves to be with his children
He is such a wonderful daddy. (Aside from watching a lot of TV:)...he is the world's best example for them.
He treats people with so much respect and is kind to anyone he meets
We are all so lucky to have him in our life and I have no idea where I would be without him! I love you!
I have a million pictures that I love, but here are just a few...

The Sunday Funnies and More Fall Pictures

Yesterday this was a conversation I had with Hunter...
H: Mommy, where do we live?
Me: Hunty you tell me, where DO we live?
H: Tennessee
Me: That's right! Where do Mimi and Da live?
H: Tennessee too
Me: Yes! Where do Grammie and Pop live?
H: Sweet Home Ababama
My smart little cookie!

Here are some more pics from Halloween...though these were the morning of at Gentry's Farm and a few days before that carving pumpkins.

This first picture isn't a great one of the boys but this truck is always there right when you come in, so it has become a tradition over the past 3 years to get their picture there. I also had to show the whole thing because that was how the sky looked that whole day of was very eerie!

Next stop: The Corn Maze
Hunty taking off as soon as we got to it! I literally had to run pretty fast to keep up with him! Thank goodness for the splits in the maze!

Daddy and Drakey walking through the maze

Every time we would come to a split (there were literally about 50), Hunter would say "Which way you wanna go...this way, or this way?" and hold out his hands...he is so silly!

Showing the little guys it was more than just a maze, but it was actual corn!

Bad mistake. Hunty wanted to pick corn the rest of the way even though the sign going into the maze clearly stated to NOT pick the corn...whopsee...

See sign below

After the Maze:
Running from the tent to the next hiding place...

Drakey found Hunty hiding in the little house (see his little face in the crescent shape in the house). Not quite sure what purpose it served, but the little guys seemed to love it

Then to the straw maze...

Through the tunnel...

Then up the ladder to go down the slide! (I think Hunter went about 5 times to every Drake's 1)

D made it to the bottom! YAY!

Having fun on the tire swings!

Hunty waiting his turn

The Grain tables...they could have played there for HOURS! And we would have happily let them except it was past nap time and it was getting colder by the minute that day...

Riding the mini-tractors

Fill-er up with gas!

The chickens were running around everywhere, which was different this year, they have never let them do that before and the boys, especially Drake LOVED it! He chased them all over the place!

I hate that the quality of this picture isn't great, but Drake is screaming at the chicken...which meant it was time to go...

We were so cold we by-passed the Hay ride. I was not too sad. There is always next year!

Now onto our pumpkins...

Carving the pumpkins!

Hunter desparately wanted a knife too, so I let him have a butter knife...he thought he was cutting the pumpkin and that was all that mattered!

The boys LOVED their little baby boy pumpkins!

The finished product!

And then onto Daddy's "fancy" pumpkin he wanted to do.

This was Daddy's pumpkin. So we had: Mommy pumpkin, 2 little boy pumpkins, and Daddy the pirate...

Halloween donuts to start the sugar spree off right!

And then this is what happens after too much sugar...
