Goodbye Cribs

 It's Wednesday night.  We are just back from Aden's basketball tryouts.  I had fun talking with the parents.  Aden isn't sure how he did and we weren't allowed to watch.  Amy is upstairs trying to get the twins to go to bed.  They are getting much more comfortable being in the beds and are starting to get into trouble.  Beds you ask?  Yes, in case I didn't mention it, last Thursday was took apart the cribs.  
 It was kind of emotional.  Aden's crib has been together for over 10 years.  

 We went with toddler beds for now.  We aren't sure if we are going to keep them in the room so we figured the toddler beds would give us another year till we have to make a decision.  
 Story time before bed.
 Amy told them not to get out of the beds without us being there.
 We watched them all night.  It took a while for them to fall asleep.  They talked and passed toys back and forth but did not get out of bed.  
 This was sometime during the night.
 We came in at 7:30, they are usually crying to get out of their cribs at 7, and they were sitting up in bed.  Noah said they were good boys and didn't get out of bed!
 Visiting grandmom.  
 Amy has been busy decorating the house.  
 Eva and Gwen came for dinner.
 The kids were nuts!
 It was fire prevention week so we went to the local firehouse open house.  I guess the boys aren't scared of Sparky anymore.  
 They loved shooting the hoses.

 Aden's friends.
 We had fun exploring.
 Big firetruck!

 Night number 2!  Still going well.

MMMMM Turtles

Just a quick post for Wednesday.  Aden and Ariel had a half day last Tuesday.  Ariel walked home with a friend we hadn't met before!  They played nicely all afternoon.
 The remnants of Hurricane Michael was fast approaching and it was really nice the day before so I headed Margate to close up the house for the winter.  
 It didn't take me long to bring in all the furniture.

Then Dino's for a steak.
 Then got our favorite turtles at Jageilky's.
 I had to check out the beach.
 It was so nice I could have just fallen asleep.  There were people on the beach and in the ocean!
 My grandmother had a visit from her newest great grandson.
 I saw this at Home Depot.  Crazy.
 Everyone on the driveway!
 Soccer practice.  Soccer and flag football are winding down for the season.  

 A rare treat for Eli to join us at the table for dinner.

Is That Carson?

It's Monday night and we just got back from Aden's final regular season flag football game.  They tied so they are the only team that is undefeated!  That should get them a bye in the playoffs.  They have been pretty great all season.  

Here's a sneak peak at Ariel's costume.  All she kept saying is that she wanted to be a pink monster.  
Amy took the boys to get some pumpkins.
 I went with Aden to the Eagles game against the Vikings.  It was a 4:00 game.  We got there around 1:30 and still had trouble parking.  We threw the ball around.  
 Then we headed in.

 He loves going into the store.  
 Here we go.  

 I didn't take that many pictures or videos.  It was not a very good game and the Eagles lost.  

Aden's game was much better.

 Only Ariel came to watch because it was raining.
 Aden caught 2 touchdown passes and an extra point!

 Go Bengals!
