happy uncooperative halloween!

so we had costumes planned for quinn, jayden, and i where jayden would be an x-ray machine (skeleton showing with all of the things inside the belly, aka wedding ring, coins, etc) and quinn and i would wear scrubs and be doctors. jayden's costume involved wearing a box, which, needless to say, he was not having. so we scrumaged around the house looking for something that looked anything like a costume, and found a snow suit that looked a little like a bear. when people asked, instead of telling them that he is a blue bear (because really, who's heard of a blue bear) we told them that he was plan b. luckily not many people asked and even a few thought he was cookie monster. why didn't we think of that?

afraid of the spiders in the backdrop. where in the world would he get that from?! ;)

daddy's lil' helper

i love that i came outside at the time that i did so that i could capture this moment. i love that our lawn mower just happens to have a little handlebar just jayden's size. i love all of the beautiful colors of the trees behind our house. i love that quinn doesn't care how long it takes him to mow the lawn with two little feet in front of him slowing him down. i love that jayden really feels like he is helping daddy, and that quinn really treats him like he does.

i love my life.

hotties with the bodies

i've always thought that ben harper was incredibly good looking, so when quinn was told that he looked like ben harper, and i realized that hey, he does look a little like ben harper, it made quinn's hotness level go up that much higher. i didn't know hotness levels went this high!

(if you don't know who ben harper is, he is the good looking one up front...not one of the scary gangstas or the white snoop dog in the background)

when i took out the camera, stuck it in quinn's face and told him to look like ben harper, this is what he gave me:

maybe not a face ben harper would make, but definitely a face hotter than any ben harper could ever make.

future janitor

i sure hope not! but his recent hobby of pushing the laundry basket around the house and putting in whatever items he comes across makes it look that way. that or a clepto.

i just found his sippy cup, my sports bra, socks, a toy, a snow boot, a book, and a leaf inside the laundry basket. oh and my cell phone that i was looking for. and no, all of those things were not lying around the house. that's where he needs to brush up on his janitorial skills; by not making more work for himself (myself) and taking things from the place they belong. i guess that would really make him a future clepto huh. why does that make me less nervous than a future janitor?

go cards!

they may not be as good as the basketball team, but we still had a great time at louisville's football game this saturday, which they happened to win.....barely.
j-dogg loved my play-by-plays

and quinn's enthusiasm. (even if it was just for the camera).
booya! this one is for hil! not bad seats either huh?!?

well hello there belly

why didn't anyone tell me?! why didn't anyone warn me that you show much sooner with your second child than your first? ok, maybe it's because of the fact that no one knew we were pregnant, or maybe it's just me that this is happening to, but i am about the size i was at 7 months pregnant with jayden and i'm not even 5 months along yet! i didn't show with my first until i was about 6 months pregnant, but i swear i saw a bump the second i found out i was pregnant with this one. anyways, i don't mind. i like having a belly. i was just shocked to see it show up so soon. so hello there belly, i welcome you with open arms.

no, this is not a picture of me and jayden. my belly is big but not that big. i just thought it was an adorable picture that i saw on designmom. i don't know if i'm exactly ready to show belly pictures yet, you'll have to stay tuned for those. for now, i am just going to enjoy the fact that the news is out and i don't have to try and hide my belly anymore. my fitted shirts have come back out to play!

good ol' huber farms

i am in love with a little something called fall break. quinn and i never remember having a fall break at any other university we've attended. it really is fantastic and was much needed. my fall break was this last weekend, and although quinn's isn't until next week, he went with jayden and i to huber farms; a gorgeous orchard and winery in southern indiana. we were able to walk through the pumpkin patches and pick the most delicious apples. it reminded me of being home.

it got a little chilly on the wagon ride so quinn was kind enough to share his hoodie with jayden.

blowing kisses.

i must apologize to those of you out there who check the blog everyday looking for new pictures of your grandson....karen.

well, they may not be of the grandson you were thinking of but here they are:


we're having another boy!!!

oh, and i should probably also aplogize to those of you we've lied to for the last 4 and half months when we've said that we weren't pregnant. you understand, right.
