hair cuts


I gave the boys a hair cut the other day. It isn't how I wanted it but I guess anything is better then how it looked before. Tristin and Gavin can't rock the long hair look very well because they just look like miscreants or deprived children. I can't handle it so I just buzzed it! It's hard to think they look cute when we go to Wally world and Gavin's hair won't lay down and he is screaming at the top of his lungs. If they didn't have cameras in there I would probably leave him screaming in the middle of the isle and pretend I don't know who's devilish little child he is.

Thanksgiving is almost here, one more month till the boys turn two and Christmas will be here way too soon. I have three more weeks of school which seems to be my priority right now. I did get to go to Portland this last week end with out the boys which was a first in a very long time that I have been away from them for more then 24 hours. I missed them a lot, but it was good to have a break and do some fun stuff. I enjoyed it but it is good to be home!!! And more tired then before I left.

Trick or Treating

Everyone dressed up this year even dad(who is taking the picture).
I have to say I wasn't very excited about it, Unlike some of my other sisters who love this holiday
I don't really care for it. This was better then other years just because the kids had so much fun!

I had been able to dress Gavin up a couple of times before but
for some reason when I went to
put it on him for real he was very upset and was kicking and screaming!

I decided to use the wagon but it turned out to be a horrible idea, me and my ideas!
This was the norm for last night Tristin who was Spidey was
very quiet and chill, and Gavin was Batman and he just wanted to eat the candy and didn't really care much about going to the next house.

There is a definite learning curve when it comes to trick or treating. Gavin picked up the saying very quick, but then he would do things like try to get into peoples houses to pet their dog or keep asking for more, or trying to take more then one when they let you choose. Tristin was quiet and wouldn't even say "trick-or-treat" and couldn't figure out how to open up his bag to get the candy in. Over all it was fun but very tiring.
