Yo Gabba Gabba!

So, my friend Michelle had her daughter Kalia's 2nd Birthday party today.  It was a Yo Gabba Gabba theme.  I decided to dress up the babies in costume, and by costume, I mean things I had around the house..  Jake decided to follow suit.  He is awesome.

Hazel as Foofa and Zeke as Brobee.

The little green one.
DJ Lance.  Awesome.  No other adult dressed up.

Side note: I did wear a long red dress to sort of be Moono, but I was NOT about to draw a giant eye on my face. 

Happy Birthday Kalia!!!

Good times at Nate's Butt Farm Pumpkin Patch

Last weekend, my parents and the fam decided it was time to go to the pumpkin patch for some pumpkins.  I think it's mandatory to go to the pumpkin patch and get the obligatory photos of children frolicking amongst the pumpkins.  Also, I love me some Bates Nut Farm.  They have it all decked out with different vendors, corn maze, hay ride, pony ride, the works.  Plus all the animals that you can feed.  And you know how this girl loves her some animals.  We decided to go in the morning to beat the rush which may or may not have been a good idea.  We did beat the rush, but babies got ridiculously cranky and in need of a nap.  Good thing they sleep in the jogger.  Cause otherwise, it would have been a nightmare.  Here are the aforementioned photos.  My kids are awesome.

Zeke was all about the pumpkins.  He ran right into the piles of them and began to try to pick them up and push them around.  

Here, he seems to be riding the pumpkins like a horse, or maybe like my cat Rambo.

Hazel, on the other hand, was terrified of them.  She did not know what to make of them.  She cried when we placed her in the middle of a group of pumpkins.  She, however, is not too scared to run up to a strange dog 3 times her size.  Awesome.


Maybe I'll just touch it.  See if it bites.

Once we got her a pumpkin more suitable to her size, she warmed up.

Then started to kiss them. 

We spent quite a bit of time in the over sized pumpkin patch.  My mom wanted to find THE perfect one.  It ended up weighing 90 lbs.  It was huge. 

We want this one Mommy!

Kisses from Grandpa

and a very sleepy Zeke with Grandma.  
Shortly after this was taken, they both passed out.  Nighty-night.
