Family Picture Fiasco!

To say that our family picture outing this year was a fiasco, may be an understatement. I really wanted to get our picture taken outside this year, so I scheduled it and didn't think twice about the weather (it has been SO super nice here). Well, as luck would have it, Saturday was sunny, but cold. I just knew that my babies would never smile when it felt like 20 degrees outside! So, much to my dismay, we moved indoors.
Things seemed to go downhill from there...

When we got to Jeff's, Kevin completely lost it and start bawling and clutching onto Brian and I. I figured he would settle down a bit... which didn't really happen until about 2 minutes before we were ready to leave. And then it was just because I bribed him with a sucker.
Then, just when Kevin was cooperating, Sam decided he had enough! So, you know that I gave him a sucker too! Why not? Kevin had a stick hanging out of his mouth, so the more the merrier! Despite all that we went through, the picture of all 3 boys with suckers is my absolute favorite...

New Hat for Sam

Just couldn't resist to share a picture of Sam in his new hat (from the Target $1 bin!). You know that we love hats in this family as we only know bald babies! :)

Halloween Fun

We had alot of fun on Halloween! The boys had a party at daycare which of course meant that Kevin already had too much candy collected before our night even started! :)
Our church had a Trunk or Treat & it was a blast! Brad & Belinda handed out candy, so Brian & I tried to handle all 4 boys without losing anyone! :) Quite the time!
We stopped in at a local photographer to get their pictures taken... Can you believe that I didn't even remember to bring my camera with us???? Here the rascals are...

Jacob (5), Kevin (3), Jonathan (2), Samuel (7 months)

New toy for Sam

Okay, so I didn't say the toy was new... just that it was new to Sam! :) This Drop & Roar Dinosaur was Kevin's first Christmas present from Brian and I. While I was in the attic this week getting out the Christmas Stuff (yes, you read that right, I said CHRISTMAS stuff!!) I saw it and got it out for Sam. He absolutely loves it (in case you couldn't tell by the huge smile in the picture). He doesn't quite have the hang of getting the balls in the holes, but that is what big brothers are for! :)
