Fayetteville Fall Festival

The boys, Matt and I went to the fall festival at Hunter's school. The boys were excited to wear their costume and we were glad to get out of the house. They had a blast at the festival.. I described it as organized chaos. haha!
Love these two boys to pieces.

This is Hunter and his classmate/friend/soccer team mate Mackenzie. She is a mess!
Gage is overwhelmed and by the mad chaos that is going on. They had two or three bouncy houses and many games and in a little gym. Wow!!
Waiting in line for his turn to bounce in the bouncy house
Gage wanted to join so bad. There were a couple of little kids in there at the time so we let him go in for just a minute or so. He was so funny when he got in.. he couldn't quite understand why the "floor" was moving :-)

Hunter and his classmate/friend/soccer team mate Cooper. He is a hoot... keeps me laughing always!
Had to share this brotherly moment after the festival. They both jumped in mine and Matt's bed and wanted to watch Netflix. Usually Gage will stay in the living room with us but this time (and a lot lately) he wanted to be with Hunter. I love it!!
Hunter and Gage at roughly the same age wearing the same outfit. We tried to get Gage to pose the same way but he wasn't having any of that. So we went for the next best pose :-)

I was off work one Friday, Gage and I cleaned out the boys room and found this Thomas blanket. Gage is into he was on cloud 9 getting to sit on the blanket with his cheerios and tea. All was right in the world to him at that point in time.
First time getting to try powdered donuts. By the look on his face I think he was fond of the taste :-)

More Soccer

More soccer pictures from this years season. They still don't keep score this year so I am not sure how many they have won or lost but they have done great in my books. All the kids are truly trying and they are having fun!

Such strong muscles!!!
Gage cheering on his big brother. He loves him dearly and does everything he does!

I can't help but wonder what in the world Gage is telling them. Must be some good stuff. ha!
Hunter scored a GOAL!!
Even Gage made friends with Hunter's friend, Connors, little brother. I see a future soccer game in the mix right now.

Love him!

They had their end of the year soccer party at the park with pizza, ice cream, chips and cupcakes. They had a blast! (Hunter looks so thrilled to be getting his trophy.. haha)

Hunter made the All Star Blue Team this year so on to All Star Practice.. YAY!!!

Pumpkins and Outside

We were super busy this year with soccer, parties and every thing else that we weren't able to go to the pumpkin patch as a family. So we opted for the next best thing.. pumpkins from WalMart :-)
Hunter wanted to paint them again this year instead of "cutting up" his pumpkin as he called it. He was all into it but Gage not so much. He couldn't have cared less. I figured he would have loved it since he doesn't really get to paint yet.

Such a cutie!!

You see what Gage would rather be doing... running around and playing in his car.

Hunter busy painting his pumpkin. He was so careful to make it look exactly right. Love that he tries his best at everything he does.

Practice was cancelled one night so we got out and practiced outside instead. The hammock was our goal and it was Hunter and myself against Matt. Still wasn't a fair game... haha! Gage followed behind with the golf clubs. I think he was a little confused what game we were playing :-)

Love my boys

Early one Saturday morning we headed to Hollins to meet Mr. Brian to figure out another place to put the carport/apartment. The boys had a blast playing in the dirt and wood piles. Boys!!

My boys have taught me so much about life. They have taught me to never take quiet time for granted, to love unconditionally, to be patient, not to sweat the small stuff, to be a nurse (not as good as Matt though), to some what cook (ha!), how to laugh even though I want to cry from frustration and how to have an imagination out of this world. I believe Hunter is thankful to be a boy too. I was brushing my teeth one morning and he comes in to use the restroom. As he was doing his business he said "Momma I am thankful I am a boy, because I don't have to go to the hospital and have them take a baby out of me". All I could do was laugh and completely agree.. so glad he doesn't have to go through that at all!
