Pumpkins & Peery's

Once again we were invited to the Peery's for their wonderful Halloween party! The boys were exicted to wear their costumes. Braden wanted to be a mummy/zombie, and Mason is Batman. As you can see from the pics below, the food was fabulous as was the company! In addition to the hospitality, the kids got to play a few games, do a scavenger hunt, and smash a pinata.

Day Trippin' to visit Nana and Papa

 On Sunday, we loaded up and drove to Alma for lunch with Nana and Papa. It was such a beautiful day, we were able to spend a few hours at the local park before heading home. Last week was Bonnie's birthday, so the boys each made her a card, and we did a little shopping for her. Braden was very serious about picking out the perfect wallet, and Mason "helped" pick out a ring.

 We even put one of Braden's recent school pictures in the wallet.

 Nana pitched to Mason and even let Mason pitch to her, while Blake and Braden tossed a football around with Papa.

 Blake was making faces trying to get a nice smile out of Mason, but I think the best smile came from Papa, he couldn't hold it together!

 Mason is constantly watching, listening and trying to mimic Braden in everything he does. Lucky for Mason and us, Braden is an excellent role model.

 Nothing like a little spit bubble competition.....

Big Brother Shares

Braden loves sour candy! There are a few kinds, Warheads and Sour Patch. It's hard candy that in about 10 seconds of eating it is so sour you can barely keep it in your mouth. Mason decided he wanted to try it and Braden was MORE THAN HAPPY to share. Having been a victim myself, I knew this was going to be a Kodak moment.
