Hooray for Banana Bread Family Night!!

Last night for family night we made banana bread. This is John which by his face, you can tell he is absolutely thrilled to be helping make Banana Bread.  Love you babe and thanks!!
Keir who couldn't be more content with making Banana Bread!
At least try to fake the excitement babe.  I can always count on Keir to be excited!!
Before it hits the heat!!
And the results...taste good, smells weird.  I used the Deceptively Delicious recipe and i don't know if it's the cauliflower and whole wheat but the smell is funk.  Maybe it's the pregnancy hormones. 

Bunnies and Lizards

We have lots of Jack Rabbits and Bunnies in our back yard since it's a field.  We also have snakes, tarantulas (which our neighbor next door found 2 in his yard), coyotes, and Lizards.  The bunnies have been eating our grass and fertilizing it with it poo pebbles and urine. Yummy, thank you bunnies.  John has not had to mow the grass for quite some time!!  Lucky him.

This is a one of the 3 lizards that have managed to make it into my house.  Not a big fan.  They are more then welcome in my yard NOT my house.  The last time there were lizards in the house I of course freaked and of course john was not home.  I was able to get it out of the house.  I take a nap and when I wake up there is a lizard staring at me.  Creepy.


Poor Keir has had the nasty cold that is going around and it doesn't want to leave and this is the result of it! Poor thing.

Our Trick or Treat Day!!

This is Keir being scared of Nana aka Sleeping Beauty.  Every year we go to John's mom's school where she teaches and watch the little Halloween Costume Parade then watch the program where her students and the other kindergartner classes sing cute Halloween songs.  Way cute.
Keir and cousin Leo eating donuts in Nana's classroom.  And this is when the sweets start and then never end until he is asleep!!
After Nana's program we went back to Grandma Larsen's and Keir helped her pick up leaves...
...and sweep leaves.  Quite the little helper he is!!
FINALLY.....It's TRICK OR TREAT TIME.  We had to bribe Keir that he wouldn't get candy unless he dressed up.  He dressed up and he was the best trick-or-treater out there. He would go up to the doors proudly and knock or ring the door bell and say the magic words.  Then he'd try to grap a handful of candy.  So cute he is!!  He was a little Chef btw.  He LOVEs to cook and watch "Giada" on the food network with me.
Wow.  Seth (my baby brother) and Matt (John's baby brother)
Another WOW.  Seth sporting  a shorter wig and Sexy John with the longer.
The cutest Bateman out there, Simeon (john's nephew)!!   He has been practicing his charactor for a while now and he has got it down.  He is so animated and I love it!
I had to post this pose I mean come on look at that face!
His cute older brother Mikey aka Jedi.

And it's off!  Again.

Longboarding Keir Style!!

Keir With his favorite person Aunt Emmy

Seth would put keir on his longboard and then push him down the drive way into the road and back up the drive way.  Keir had so much fun he kept telling Seth, "AGAIN!"
