What Cupcake?


I know it has been a while since I wrote again! We have had family in town and have been really busy with lots of fun things... starting tomorrow - I will be posting all about our November...
Looks like I have some explaining to do right now about some missing cupcake... mom thinks one with chocolate frosting is missing and she keeps asking me if I know what happened to it...
Sheesh - I'm innocent... I swear!

Trick or Treat?

Well, I have to back up a little bit before I tell you about my Halloween Festival to explain my pumpkin. I was supposed to pick out a pumpkin for a decorating party at Jack's house... but dad and I got the stomach flu the night before we were supposed to go. I had picked out the PERFECT pumpkin and mom had gotten me some really cool foam stickers to share too! (Mom said that there was NO way I was carving a pumpkin - something about her liking all 10 fingers God gave me...)
So, after I was feeling better - mom let me decorate my pumpkin! It was SO fun.
I wanted it to be a fire pumpkin - so I let it borrow my hat!
Here's where we get to Halloween! So, my mom did this brilliant thing and booked all three of us flu shots on Halloween... talk about trick! But, it ended up pretty cool because after we got our shots, we hung out with Nana all day long... We ran into this fire truck when we stopped to get some lunch! It was SO cool. Luckily I had my hat in the truck! The firemen caught us taking a peek and even gave me badge stickers! It was SO cool.
After hanging at Nana's all day - we loaded up in the truck... Addie was not thrilled with the black paint on her nose... She thought it made her nose look big! Matt didn't sleep all day at Nana's house... who can blame him - it is more fun to play with all her toys!
We went to the Fall Festival at our new church... Mom got us all dressed in the truck and we loaded up! Addie was the best little skunk ever! She never even tried to take her head part off! Moo Moo wouldn't keep his on... guess he needed a longer nap in the truck - he was a crier all night... Mom said it was fitting... he was a cow with Mad Cow Disease! We did a dry run in our costumes at Nana's house - if she got better pics of him in his costume - I'll share them later!At the festival - they had a petting zoo... it was SO cool!
This pony was smaller than my dog!
They even had little piggies in the petting zoo... oh wait - that's not a piggie - that's my cousin Kaleigh and my big cousin Merry! Merry was dressed as the perfect wife... oh wait - that's not a costume - that's really her!
Here's the piggy I was talking about - he was my favorite! Mom said maybe I could get one someday.
OH! Look at the little black one too!
It was like 110 degrees out even though it was night time... Sissy started to look a little hot - so mom took off her hat... notice she is STILL sitting in the wagon!
This is my dad... he is SO cool he doesn't need a costume... He is a drummer - top that!
Things went south pretty quick. My Jack and I were bouncing on this cool really TALL bounce thing and they made me get off. Jack is 3 - so they let him stay... well, that just made me mad - so I kinda threw a little fit... since Matty wasn't in the best mood either AND we had an hour drive home - mom decided to call it quits... She stripped us naked (OK we had undies on) and threw us in the car. We stopped for a McDonald's car picnic with dad and then went home... Man, there is nothing like a good movie for a long drive home!
Once we got home - mom let me ring Karen and Tom's door. She told me to say "Trick or Treat". I thought it was strange - but then again - it's my mom. OK - so I said it and they gave me CANDY... are you kidding me? I have been saying it every time I get to a door since - no one else gives me candy though... Maybe Karen and Tom are just really nice! Afterwards - we put the sibs to bed and I got to hang out in my costume... mom calls this the "Calendar Edition..." She is weird - I have NO clue what that means! Isn't my hat SO cool?
After some candy, some bubble drink (mom and dad call it Sprite) and some quality hot wheels time with my dad - they told me I had to go to bed...

More Walks!

Now that it is actually 90 degrees in Phoenix - we have been going on more walks! Here is a shot of me and the sibs after a walk to Einstein's Bagels this past Sunday. Mom, Dad, the sibs and I walked about 1 mile to the new bagel shop! I walked the WHOLE way there and rode shotgun on the way back... Matt doesn't like me crowding his space!
Here we are tonight - as we took a little stroll around the block. Matty and Addie go stir crazy sometimes - so we just load them up and go for a walk! Matty likes the wheels... by the time we get home his fingers are black! Notice who is pulling the wagon?
Matty MaGoo with his all time favorite toy - A Link Ring... we don't leave home without one!

Sissy was being a little shy... or mad. Mom made her keep this hat on and it was cramping her style... It didn't match. Notice the bruises on Addie's head? She got this one at church - Matt has a matching one. The nursery teachers told mom that they got in a fight over a toy and wrestled for it...
Well, as I get on our way - I would just like to point out a couple of things...
1. This was MY wagon.
2. I think mom and dad had me first so the I could do all the work.
3. I vote that we harness Daisy up and make her pull this thing!

I'll talk to mom and dad about it and let you know how it goes!
(P.S. - before someone calls CPS... my mom really pulls the wagon with me... she was just letting me pretend for the pics... don't call on her - she is a pretty safe mom most of the time!)

A Trip To the Zoo

Finally! Pics of my Zoo trip - only 2 weeks late! On a lazy Sunday - Mom, Dad, Matt, Addie & I met up with Gram at the Zoo... Papa was on his way home from Pine Top or he would have been here too!
Addie was more into her Apple Juice than the animals at first!
Moo Moo has a worried look! We started in the snake area and I think he was a little afraid of the rattlers....
I LOVE to look at all the animals! This one was HUGE - it was taller than my dog!
See?!?
Even though it's October - it was REALLY hot and REALLY sunny. I had to borrow my dad's shades to keep the sun out of my eyes!
These are our new white Rhinos at our zoo... they were pretty stinky!
This monkey wanted to say hello! He was kinda grumpy... Could someone get this guy a banana?
Nothing like strolling through the park with your dad and your gram!
Here's Missy Mae... She was pretty lively as we stopped for a snack... I think she could have her own habitat here! She would need plenty of trees to climb!
By the time we stopped for a snack - Moo Moo was so OVER the zoo! Lighten up Matty - someday you will get to walk and eat all the yummy stuff too!
This was my favorite part of the WHOLE day... while we were snacking - I got to see my all time favorite things ever! AIRPLANES! I guess the zoo is close to the airport... we saw tons and tons of airplanes!
We wrapped it up with a trip to Harmony Farm... I got to pet all the animals... I think this one was named Billy.I liked this one too - but dad told me when they raise their tail - it is time to move on...
Here's me and my mom by a REAL John Deere Tractor! I would have much rather been looking at the tractor than at a camera - sorry mom!
