We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirndess and call it love.

Out of the mouth of my babies....

Brett: "Mom, I HATE STUPID enchiladas!!!!!" (thank you lovely cartoons for these nice words)
Say what?  Where did my sweet little Bretty go?  Hahaha, pretty powerful sentence from my boy.  Sheesh.  Needless to say, he ate EVERY bit of his enchiladas last night.  Brett 1,  Mommy 1 :):)

As we were leaving Allison at preschool.....
Allison, "Good bye sweet boy!"
Brett, "Goodbye sweet girl!"
They are either best friends or complete enemies, nothing in between.  When we picked Allison up from school, she had made a turkey that said, "Allison is thankful for her brother."  I'm going to keep that turkey and show it to her when she is a teenager :)

Allison wasn't going to sleep for her nap, so I finally went up there to take care of business....  She was reading a book that I quickly took away so she could focus on sleeping.  She told me, "Mom...I haven't it made it to the best part yet!"  Apparently it was a REALLY good book.  WHO KNEW? :)

It took Brett quite a while to decide what he wanted to be.  Fortunately for me, he decided to be Captain Hook and we already had the costume!  I did buy pirate face paint and he obsessed about it for DAYS... he was so thrilled when he finally got to use some.  I bet you can't guess what Allison wanted to be :)  
They had lots of fun Trunk or Treating at the church and ate candy for several days!

CUTE kids :)

There is a little boy and little girl that can't wait to go to work with Daddy someday :)  Large boots to fill I suppose!

Oh how different siblings can be....

We have a wide variety of personalities in our household.  When Allison gets mad or frustrated, she will sure tell you about it, and tell you about it and tell you about it....until she gets the last word.  She is scared of nobody (not even scary daddy).  We often wonder where she acquired this personality trait!  HAHAHAHAHA....  then there is child #2....  Occasionally he mouths off, but his usually mode of anger expression is as follows (please note what awesome parents we are as we caught his personality on camera!):

 Our baby boy "Pouty McPouterton" :)  LOVE this kid!

Allison's Preschool!

So I'm a little behind.  Allison started preschool for the first time in September!  She LOVES it.  She even "plays" preschool at home and does and says the same things her teachers do.  She gets to learn "Zoo phonics" and do arts and crafts and play in the gym.  

What do Brett and I do during preschool?  We may or may not frequent the Varsity Donut shop in Aggieville.  The conversation usually goes as follows....
Brett:  "Mom, can I try yours?"
Mom:  "Sure."
Brett: "Try mine."....... "What do you think?"

Love this kid (p.s., he gets a different one almost EVERY time we go)

Allison gets to go sometimes too :)  What can I say, we LOVE this place :):)
