I've been a little picture happy this weekend posting all sorts of fun stuff (four posts just tonight!). So, don't forget to scroll down and look at our Spooktacular pics and Dawson's soccer game pics in addition to just the cute picture posts I have on top! Blogging is so much fun(!!!!), but here's Dawson saying "Adios" for now!

Cute Pics of Thomas and the Daetster in Blue!

Cute Pics of the Emster in Purple!

Go Giants!

This morning was Dawson's last soccer game of the season. It was such a fun game, but it was so cold! Here are some pics of Dawson and his teammates from this morning. Dawson is definately a little hustler and runs constantly after the ball the entire game! Needless to say, he's always worn out after a Saturday morning soccer game! Basketball is next coming in December! Woo Hoo!

And here are my little cuties on the sideline! Emmy loves Dawson's games and she'll start clapping when everyone else does! This morning, I could tell she was getting cold though. She was fairly happy through most of the game, but when I told her "no" to headbutting daddy she gave me "the lip"! Daeton asks me every Saturday "when do I get to play socwer?" We always have to say "next year", but he finds creative ways to entertain himself on the side in the meantime. This morning, he enjoyed going "through the tunnel" of daddies legs!

Fave Foto Friday and Spooktacular!

Here is my fave friday pic for this week:

Dawson is learning to buckle his seatbelt on his own and today he did it for the first time all by himself!!! I was so excited! As we were out and about running errands today, Dawson buckled himself in four or five times all by himself! He was so proud of himself! Looks like my little baby is growing up!

We took the kids to an even at the zoo on Wednesday night called Spooktacular. They have it every year where they dress up the zoo with lots of cute decorations and area businesses come and hand out candy for the kids. It's a great way to let the kids trick or treat in a safe environment. This year was wonderful as Wednesday night was not busy at all and it wasn't cold enough yet to really be miserable. We all had a blast and the boys especially loved it!

Here are the kids right before we left the house for the zoo. Emmy was NOT a happy camper!

The boys were excited to be in their costumes (although I had to bribe Daeton with a new green bucket to put his candy in), but Emmy was just not excited to be in that pink flamingo outfit!

This is immediately after we arrived at the zoo. Emmy still wasn't happy, but she was interested in what was going on!

Daeton and Dawson and I went though a hay maze! Dawson led the way and it was lots of fun! This was us coming out of the maze.

Pablo and Blue looking cute!

Emmy and her princess bucket of candy! She is finally starting to enjoy the evening while chilling in the stroller.

Dawson posing by the Blue's Clues display. You can't tell from the pic, but he's actually sitting in the red "thinking chair".

Dawson and Daeton digging though corn kernals for bones!

Still digging! But we had to leave shortly after becuase Daeton decided to throw corn kernals EVERYWHERE in excitement of finding a bone!

Emmy is finally her smiley self again! Here she is sitting on hay bale in the middle of a barnyard themed set up!

Each of the kids picked a pumpkin and I took their picture by it. I picked this one for Emmy with a heart! She was so cute as she started grinning the minute I put her down. Everyone walking by was ohhhhing and ahhhing about the cute little pink flamingo.

Dawson picked out this jack-lantern. He is such a sweet little poser!

Daeton picked out this Jack-o-lantern. I coldn't get him to sit still enough to get a very good picture, but he's showing off his new green glow-in-the-dark bucket here.

Here is Emmy standing up in her pink flamingo suit! She is smiling at daddy!

Mommy and her three little cuties waiting to ride the train!

Pablo and Daddy with "Thomas". Daeton, opps....I mean Pablo LOVES Thomas!

Ernie talking to Emmy on the train ride.

I let the boys have on candy bar on the way home. Almost home, I look back to see Daeton covered in chocolate! Such a cute little mess!

New Pics of Miss Ella!

I just recieved an email with new pics of my sweet Ella attatched! Oh my goodness she is soooo beautiful and oh my goodness I miss her soooooooo much! The little blue dress in the picture is one that we left for her when we saw her on Emmy's pick up trip. I LOVE picture day and I look forward to it all month long, but I have to say it is rather bittersweet. It is so wonderful to see new pics of my gorgeous baby (I could stare at her face all day!), but it is so hard to see how big she is getting without me! I hope and pray that my precious Ella is home with her sweet brothers and sister very, very, very soon! We also got an update medical today. Ella now wieghs in at 11 pounds and 14 ounces. She is 59 centimeters long and get this....they say she has a tooth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's kind of funny that she already has a tooth, but I'm also kind of sad about it, too! I missed her getting her first tooth! Okay, so we've only been in PGN for a little over a week, but I'm ready to get OUT! I want to go get my baby!

Happy Birthday, Dawson! - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more
I cannot believe that my baby is 4 years old today! It seems like just yesterday he was born. He had a tough entrance into the world, but has been full of life ever since! I don't know where these last four years went and I can't believe what an amazing little boy Dawson has grown to be! He is such a smart little guy! At four years old, he's already adding and subracting THREE digit numbers as well as spelling words and learning to read some, too! The child knows what a parallelogram, a rhombus, and a trapazoid is! But aside from all that, Dawson is just the sweetest, most sensitive child! He has such a big heart and is so kind to everyone he meets. He is an incredible big brother. I am so proud of him and I am so blessed to know him. What an honor it is to have been chosen to be his mother! He truly makes me a better person! Happy Birthday, my baby boy! I love you so much!
