Tonight the kids and I went to the Untied Faith schools Fall Festival. This is where Adron goes to school; we saw his teacher, Ms. Tammy and had so much fun gathering candy into our little bucket. I was thinking back to our other Halloweens in Dallas and how my friends always made fun of me for not giving Adron candy. I’m lol because Adron had really good idea on what to do with out candy that he had won playing games. (Dana and Candice this is for you)
Things to do with Halloween candy by Adron
Sleep with it
Share it please and thank you
Play drums with it
Throw it in the trash (again LOL I thought this was a really good idea)
Pop it
Drink it
Mark you paper with it

Not once did he think we should eat the stuff… ummm I guess he didn’t get any M&M’s. I told him I was so proud of him and we both thought it would be a good idea to eat some carrots. We have 3 more times to wear our superman costume, this also means 3 more times to get candy. I hope our trend last for the next 3 times.

Our birthday party at Monkey Joes

Living the Dream...

I’m thinking about back in the day when all I wanted to be when I grew up was a hairdresser. This is still the case today; add on fashion designer to the mix. One day I would love to make my own clothes, wishing I had watched Grandma Longbons when she was trying to teach me how to sow.

I remembering back to my childhood when mom and dad went to Evansville IN to go shopping and left me at home, so I could be up to no good. I remember thinking when you leave I’m so cutting my hair off. I had all that power in those scissors. I cut inches off my hair to a cute uneven bob. Yes, I got into big trouble, and yes mom had to fix it.

I’m getting all my hair cut off on Monday, so the excitement is they’re wishing I could do this myself. I’ve watched to many hair shows today and feeling very creative today. I feeling, yes I can do this, WOW this would be so much fun, oh where are my scissors, I could be the next hair show STAR. It’s off to cut some hair… ready… set …. Houston was my first model! Know, he has never had a hair cut before, I didn’t talk to Nathan about this, and feeling like I’m going to get into trouble … But oh my he looks soooo cute!!! He looks great, a little boy and not so much like a baby. Awww, the dream still lives on.. Who’s next??

We are off the high of sugar here in the Tillotson household. 4 Birthday parties, 4 birthday treats, 4 birthday outfits and we have a 4 year old.

Things to look for in a 4 year old so far:
Big storytelling
Picking on his brother
Spelling (mom and dad can't say some words in code)
New dr gives to many shots (this made me teary)

Adron is very sweet, we get extra hugs and kisses and he tell us "I so glad to see you today". When I come in each morning from running Adron tells Nathan (he is almost always still asleep) "mommy's here, see see", and won't stop telling him until he says hello to me. This gives we great joy to have Nathan wake up this way, I'm sure he enjoys it too.

Things to look for in a 1 year old so far.
Big story teller (we have yet to figure out what he is saying, he just points a lot with his fingers)
Loves baked beans
Needs a hair cut, but it's hard he is only one
Had to have his one-year shots the same day and time as big brother (this was a hard day)

Houston is always super sweet; he gives us extra hugs and kisses and pats us on the back while hugging. Learning about dogs and cats and what sounds they make. Loves his new books that he can feel with, he even carry's them around. Houston is still my good sleeper; he is almost never awake when I get home in the morning.

Update on the parties:
Grammy Lesa and Papaw Rick put on a great party with golf, yummy cake, and the Etheridge sloppy joes. He had a great time playing and hanging out with people that we hadn't seen in a long time.

School party:
Ms. Tammy had yummy treats and goodie bags for Adron party at school

The big day
On the 11th we went to Monkey Joe's for some bounce house fun! The boys both brought one friend then we can back to our place for pizza and cookie cake. Elijah and Lawson got the boys a really cool racetrack with some car. The boys LOVE it!

Thanks to everyone who was apart of the Birthday's we had fun and can't wait to do this all again next year!

Any one up for Golf?

We are in IL today having our 2nd birthday party for the boys. My mom and sister have been planning for the "golf" party for over a month. Adron has been waking up early for over a month to ask if this is the day we go to papaw's house. Papaw made a 4 hole, "watergrass alley golf course".
This is what the invite said:
It's a BIG BIG Birthday
Come and join in the fun
Houston's turning 1!!!
Oh, but were not done
We have one more
Adron's turning 4!!
Oct Fourrr
Tee Time 4pm

I'm thankful for my families’ time and energy that they have put into the party. I'll I have had to do is drive here and bring the boys.

Tuesday morning the boys woke us up at 5:30 because they couldn't wait to get on the road. I was going to get up at this time anyways and go for a run to have some time to myself, but that quickly changed into lets get on the road asap. 6ish to 7 hours with stops we were in Nashville TN. We spent the night, had a great morning hanging out at Otter Creek, a great little lake and trail area. Then papaw came to pick us up to take us back to his house.

Yesterday we went to Grandma Nancy's house for party #1, good food, and way to much cake and great new toys to play with. 1 party down 3 to go. Just an update on the boys I'll be posting full details and pictures soon
