Best Buddies

So the other day as Boston and I were walking through TJMaxx as we often do, Boston spotted a wonderful treasure upon the self that he wanted. I often wander through the store with lots of random items knowing that I will put them away when we are finished but for the time they are keeping my child quiet. So without a thought, I hand Boston the little pig he requested and continue on with my shopping. He starts calling the pig, Wilbur, which he picked up from Charlotte's Web. He is having full blown conversations with his new friend when I hear him say,"You want to come to Bosty's house, Wilbur? You want to come play at my house?" I knew at that very moment that I was too big of a sucker and would end up taking home Wilbur. He has hauled Wilbur around with him for days, setting him on the counter to eat cereal, reading him stories, and making a bed for him. I am so glad that Wilbur joined our family so that we don't have to get that puppy the kids have been begging for now.

Benny's Boots

Boston has recently got new shoes. He has his little movie obsessions and one of his latest has been Sandlot. He loves Benny's shoes and so we went out and got him some. He hasn't wanted to wear any other shoes since. When Cooper was this age he went through the exact same phase. He went through a few pair of "Benny's boots" as they both affectionately refer to them as. Boston and Cooper are definitely brothers and share the same obsessions in life.

Beauty Takes Pain!

Delaney has been counting down the days all summer when she would be able to go get her ears pierced. We told the girls when they were younger they had to wait until their ninth birthday to get their ears pierced. Well, when McKenzie was approaching age nine she convinced her Dad to let her get hers done six weeks before her birthday so she could change out her earrings on her birthday. So following in her footsteps, Delaney counted back six weeks from her ninth birthday and here we are. Delaney and her friend Tess decided to go together since they were both a little scared to say the least. Tess went first but it didn't help ease Delaney anxiety obviously from her reaction. In the end they were tough and endured the pain for the beauty of their cute little pink flower earrings!

First day of school

Yesterday was our first day of school. I go to Tonaquint and Delaney and Cooper go to Heritatige Elemantary. I got up at 6:00 and made pancakes and saved the leftovers for Delaney and Cooper. I went to our neighbors house and jumped their fence to go to the bus stop. Delaney got up at 7:30 got ready practiced piano and then her and Cooper left for school at about 8:45. Here are some pictures of us on the first day of school. We had to do mine at home because I ride the bus.
