Last night was our fall fest/Halloween carnival at church. It was so much fun and we all dressed up. Here we are, Daddy and Mommy dog and our litter of puppies. I had so much fun making the costumes and they were so easy that the boys got to help. They were so proud! Brennan wasn't crying about his costume, but he Dislikes his car sear so much!!! This is what he does instantly when buckled!
On our way out to go home, Dr. Denman asked if William would like to help him drive the tractor for the hay ride!!! William loved it. Thanks Dr. Denman!!!
Cade wasn't sure about all the costumes and ended up getting held most of the night! Here is the greatest Daddy in the world with a sleeping baby in one arm(the small white lump with small black spots) and an unsure toddler in the other. (Cade kept taking his ears off)
October is my "birthday month" , however I spent my birthday having pizza and cupcakes with 3 little boys. My 4th and biggest boy had to go out of town on business but before he left he surprised me with flowers. I also got a bouquet of roses from a good friend. My house smelled so nice.
This is not the best picture but here is William with his sweet Tawni. Tawni is a college girl that goes to church with us. She babysits here and there and is also in our small group. William and Cade both love her to death, but who can blame them she is beautiful but she also has a heart the size of Texas! We love you Tawni! Arnold and Amanda are also hanging out on the couch, I guess I got the house a little chilly, they are all snuggling up for Bible study.William visited the Dentist for the first time ever!!! He thought it was so much fun and was such a big boy. The tech. showed him all the tools, vacuums, tooth counters, and water shooters. Below is William feeling of the vacuum. Here is William getting his teeth cleaned, He is holding his balloon friend "Harry". Polish those babies. :) William sat through the whole visit and wanted to go back the next day. Now we are brushing our teeth around 3 times a day, but he would brush them about 10 times a day if I would let him.
Michael is so wonderful. I am constantly in awe of the selflessness he shows everyday, but today I am thinking of a specific example that he showed to me earlier this week. On Tuesday, it had been a hectic day. I had not gotten nearly as much done around the house as I had liked and i was exhaused from having a teething toddler and a gassy infant all day. Michael came home from work exhausted and not feeling well. He walked into a disaster area of a playroom, a toddler with an attitude and a fuss bucket baby Brennan . After dinner was over, we put the food away(but left the kitchen a mess), bathed the older brothers and got them to bed. I did my normal bathroom pickup after tucking them in, while Michael tended to Brennan, but it really hit me what a great partner I have when I stopped picking up to come and nurse Brennan. Again Michael wasn't feeling well, but after handing over the baby he got up and went to the kitchen and started cleaning up from dinner. I figured he was going to rinse the dishes, and put them all in the sink, but by the time Brennan was finished eating, the entire kitchen was spottless. Michael even hand washed and dried every dish we used that evening. So after the baby was relaxed from feeding I was able to just sit for a little while and enjoy my husband rather than trying to get the house cleaned up for the next days events. I am so blessed to have Michael as my husband!! He really does ROCK!!
Michael, Thank you so much for all you do for me and the boys. Thank you for coming home with a smile on your face, and thank you for being such a wonderful example and Christian leader for our boys. We love you!!!
I know I know, my page is pretty orange... Why you ask? Well duh! Because it's October, the month of pumpkins, fall leaves, and cool weather; well at least in some parts of the country. I decided that since it is still summer around here and probably will be until January:) That I would try to make my page little less summer and a little more fall. So here is it. :) hehe.
Today was picture day in the Caldwell House. We now have updated family pictures that include our new sweetest baby:). William thought picture day was fun and was very cooperative through the entire process. Brennan did fairly well, as long as I wasn't holding him(I think he thought it was time to eat). Cade was not so sure he liked picture day. He didn't smile for many of the pictures and would hardly leave mine or Michael's side, so the shots were limited, but I think we got a few good ones. What do you think?
