Fun With the Fam

As mentioned in the 2-3 prior posts, Aunt Jane had her annual Halloween Party last night. It was great fun. The food consisted of mucous bones (mac and cheese), Texas Chainsaw Massacre soup (chips and salsa), ghost poops (melt-away cookies), grasshopper goo (spinach dip with bread) and witches brew (homemade root beer). It was yummy fun.

Bobbing For . . . Doughnuts?

How funny. This is just a continuation of last night's Halloween Party at Aunt Jane's house.

One of the games was what I call "Bobbing for Doughnuts." Jane had six doughnuts, one for each kid. Each doughnut was suspended from it's own length of string suspended from a PVC pipe. Each child had to sit on the floor while trying to take bites of their doughnut. The catch? No hands. Sounds easy, but it was quite difficult and VERY funny. I was laughing so hard. The winner is the first one to get his doughnut to fall to the ground. Jacob and Ben loved the game. Well, Ben loved it after I held his doughnut still while he ate it sitting up.

You'll notice a picture of Jacob looking quite distressed, about to cry. That's my boy! He takes after me; he gets quite impatient when things aren't going his way.

Bobbing For Apples

As I mentioned a few posts ago, Jacob lost his first top tooth. He has another loose tooth. Therefore, it was quite fun watching him bob for apples at Jane's Halloween party. He was soooo cute. I just love that boy. It took him quite a few tries and a few gallons of water in his hair/on his clothes in order to get the esteemed apple.

Ben had to give it a go too. I helped him by holding the apple in my hand so he wouldn't freak out. If water goes into his nose, it messes with his ear tubes; then he just screams and cries. Plus 2-year-old kids are allowed to cheat.

"Luke, I Am Your Father!"

Look at these scary superheroes that appeared at my house yesterday. We went to Jane's house for a spook-tacular time!

Jacob actually hated wearing his Darth costume. He pitched such a fit wanting to be Darth this year. I got the costume with all the bells and whistles. "It's too itchy. It's too long. It's too hot. I can't breathe." Never mind. Next year he can go as a whiny little six-year-old. Oops. He'll have to be a whiny seven-year-old since he'll be a year older. See if I spend money on a Halloween costume again!

Ben was just happy to go as the red Power Ranger. (And yes, he insisted on having a light saber too)! It's Jacob's hand-me-down from a few years ago. Ben actually wanted to be Batman about a month ago. I got him the deluxe costume. Then he saw the old Red Ranger, and that's all he wrote. Again, see if I spend money on another Halloween costume.

Side note: I think it is so funny how Ben calls Star Wars "Tar Whores!"

Toothless Cuteness

Jacob finally lost his first TOP tooth. I thought for sure I would miss his baby grin. I do, but I LOVE his new toothless grin. He looks so darling.

He was super excited to have a visit from the Tooth Fairy. In fact, he went to bed on his own at 8:00 -- a rare occurrence.

Jacob had Fall recess last Thursday and Friday, which means no school. He lost his tooth on Saturday. By Monday, he was more than excited to tell his class about losing his tooth. I guess they get to put their name on the "Tooth" board. I even made sure to do his hair (as much as a mom can "do" a son's hair) for the big day. Oh the things that make kids happy.

That's pretty much all that has happened on the Asay home front lately. Here are some cute pictures of the little darlings. Enjoy!

P.S. There's a "happy grin" picture of my angel Marty. Love that man!

Pumpkin Patch

Today, we went to the annual Pumpkin Patch and Hayride at J&J hosted by my work. The boys had fun, as always. Our shoes got muddy, as always. We got awesome big pumpkins, as always. And Jacob and Ben had a blast with their cousins, as always!

And yes, that is Ben dressed as Bob the Builder. He just HAD to wear his tool belt and hard hat! Is he not the cutest boy? Love that kid!

Jacob and Ben's First Late Night

Jacob, aka Julie McCoy, hosted his first Late Night last week. He had three of his good friends over for pizza, "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," and flashlight football.

There were TONS of giggles and belches enjoyed by all the boys involved (Marty included). They had the BEST time playing football outside with only flashlights to see what they were doing. The boys are already excited for the next Late Over at Julie McCoy's house!

Awesome Asays

I just love my boys. Can you tell by reading my blog? I am delighted every day because of them. They love each other and play so cute together most of the time. Here they are just being the cute little angels that I know they are.
