I started this post nearly two weeks ago....yikes!

Here's "lately"....

A.Plastic surgery
B.Pissed Chet off
C.Nailed with the soccer ball during one of Cru's games

Quit laughing!  It hurt BAD!

Football season came to an end.  Loved watching the Purple Thunder!

Soccer came to an end as well.  One of these days I'll get some pics posted that aren't from my phone!

During the last tournament, Cru and Beckett were pushed into each other by a player from the other team...matching boo-boos.


That happened Sunday.  On Monday, I got an email from the school that Reese had bumped heads with a classmate during PE...

I bubble wrapped Evee after that!

Or maybe she chose her own form of "protection".

How does she look that cute in her leotard when she begs for donuts every day?!?

Out to eat in a different leotard....

We run errands here there and everywhere on gymnastics days, which most certainly deserves either donuts or Daimaru!

New grill/smoker for Chet!

He's pretty proud!

We saw the movie Pan a couple weeks ago...then saw Hotel Transylvania 2 a week later.

I treated my helpers to Dairy Queen after working at the pumpkin patch....

As they sat next to each other, they turned towards each other like they were going to kiss.  As I stopped them, Thatch said, "Oh yeah, not until we're older....like 11?  10?"  

Like 30, buddy!

They like to go to the "fish park" while Reese is at bootcamp.

Bootcamp....like kids crossfit.  Reese LOVES it!!!

No, we don't have a cat!  Never will!  Although our neighbors hairless one is pretty intriguing.

Anyways, we have a neighborhood cat.  She lives in the cul-de-sac next to us, but visits daily.  Our neighbors started calling HER "Nollah" only HIS name is Jinx.  He's pretty awesome.  And has no tail.  He tortures Coy.  And he chases baseballs faster than the boys!

Ok, time to end this post.  It's lame.  And I'm tired of thinking about it being unfinished for another two weeks.

Go Royals!

Our school's biggest fundraiser.

And now our only fundraiser....can I get an amen?!!!

I always think of our school as a family, and this fundraiser proves it year after year....it's a lot of hard work mixed with a little drama but filled with a whole lot of fun!

Big thank you to all who bought tickets from and supported our kids!  We truly appreciate your generosity!  And an extra thank you to my parents!  Each year, you don't have to participate, but you do and we love you for it!

A big motivation for the kids to sell tickets is the incentives - aka spirit week!  The days they get to participate depends on how much they sell.  Motivation for parents as well!

Day 1 - 50's Day!

This was in honor of our school celebrating it's 60th birthday this year!  So, hello Halloween two years ago...Grease!!!  Goodness, our kids were excited!  Poor Cru ended up missing school that day due to bronchitis.

No matter how many tickets you sold, every kid got the opportunity to participate this day!

Reese's totally feelin' it!  Ev....well, she was super pissed Reese got to wear her scarf like a headband and she had to wear her's around her neck.

She seemed to have gotten over it pretty quick though!

Reese's class was rockin' that morning!

Her and Josie were pleasantly surprised to be dressed almost exactly the same!

Day 2 - Crazy Sock Day

Day 3 - Bullpup/Team Jersey Day

Everlee participated on the days she had school :)

This was also the day Everlee's class walked to Dairy Queen to celebrate selling $1000 in tickets!

And I should note, Reese's class was the top selling class...again!  Ev and I had fun hosting a little pizza party for them!

Day 4 - Backwards/Mismatched Day

Pretty much Cru's every day look :)

Day 5 - Favorite Team Day

I'm just happy Cru didn't wear purple just to spite his mama!

He rambled off some people in his class that had said they were going to wear Royals....

Pretty sure he added a couple boys names in the mix as a cover!  It's the one time he's never rolled his eyes about taking a picture ;)

All that fun during the week {along with lots of hours of volunteering!} led to another amazing, successful Oktoberfest!  Congratulations, St. Joe's!  You rock, again!

P&M Pumpkin Ranch

Everlee's pre-k class visited the pumpkin patch last week!  It was sweater weather and just the perfect fall morning!

She didn't have any fun on the jumping pillow ;)

Praying before snack ♥♥♥

If you are looking for a pumpkin patch in the McPherson area, I highly recommend P&M Pumpkin Ranch!  It's just a short drive to Moundridge.  I took the kids last year and loved it!  They've added some new stuff like the bouncing pillow that makes it just that much better!  Can't wait to take Reese and Cru!
