LO/LO's: Daphne (2.5) and Mac (1 week)

Tell us something about your dh we don't already know: He played soccer from the time he was 5, all the way through college (played at USC). He played in an adult league for a couple of years, but he kept getting old man injuries so he stopped. Smile

Looking forward to anything in particular this month? We have lots of visitors coming to meet Mac. Mostly I'm looking forward to October when we go to Tahoe to visit my parents and we get to go to a Nevada football game and tailgate with all my old sorority sisters.

What is your favorite fall holiday? I love Thanksgiving, but Daphne is so excited about Halloween this year that it's become infectious.

Do you like to bake in the fall? I bake year round. Smile

What candle scent do you like to burn in the fall? I like the pumpkin spice scented ones, but I probably won't burn any because I don't like the chemicals in the air.

What is your LO/LO's current favorite book? Daphne has a Little People lift the flap book that's getting a lot of reading time lately. I wish she was a little more literary in her tastes. Ha.

Current LO/LO's favorite word or sayings? Daphne's been saying "That's gorgeous!" but she missuses it. It's so funny. For example, she told me that Cormac's car seat was gorgeous and she also said it about the sandwich I made her.

Here's the birth announcement I just ordered from tinyprints. I'm so excited to get them all mailed out, but it's going to be a big job...we're sending out 150.

Tell us something about your dh we don't already know: (going off Joy's mention of sports) Jason played basketball through high school. He was All State and his mother is still talking about the glory days of watching him play. He's also from a small town in the panhandle of Texas and had a graduating class of 60. He's my small town, country boy. Wink
Looking forward to anything in particular this month? How about some cooler weather!
What is your favorite fall holiday? I would have to say Thanksgiving. The holiday revolves around food and family. What's not to love?
Do you like to bake in the fall? I'm not a huge baker. I enjoy baking occasionally but it's not something I do on a regular basis.
What candle scent do you like to burn in the fall? I have candles around but I always forget to light them. I do have a wood wick candle that smells heavenly. It's some sort of Christmas scent.
What is your LO/LO's current favorite book? An opposites book we have rechecked twice from the library. Her favorite page is the "hot" and "cold" page. She LOVES to sign cold. Biggrin
Current LO/LO's favorite word or sayings? She just learned pumpkin ("pom-pom") and keeps going to the page of a pumpkin in a library book we have.

She is such a hoot! I love the birth announcements too. Tinyprints has some of the most adorable designs.

Ashley, that picture of Miles is cracking me up.

Joy- Love the announcements! they are goregous! Wink Really- they look great! And spinach smoothies are amazing! Great way to sneak it in, you cannot taste the spinach at all. It just taste like whatever fruit you put in there.

Current LO/LO's favorite word or sayings? Andrew likes to say "YESSSSS!" and "OKAY!" He's very enthusiast about it, but rarely ever means yes. Ava like to say that she loves stuff, " I love your hair, Momma. I love your necklace." The other day I was holding her and she rubbed my boob through my shirt and said, "I love your nipple, Mommy." ROFL Silly girl!

LO/LO's: Jackson & Colby

Tell us something about your dh we don't already know: He sometimes cuts trees on his days off. The big tall ones you have to climb and tie yourself to & cut from the top down. He usually trades the job for something he wants from them.

Looking forward to anything in particular this month? September? Not really! October is a good month, but Septmeber is pretty boring. Smile

What is your favorite fall holiday? Jackson's birthday, October 30th. I have a feeling it's going to get overshadowed when he gets older, but I will always love his birthday more than Halloween!

Do you like to bake in the fall? I like to bake anytime too! In the Fall I become obsessed with apples & pumpkin.

What candle scent do you like to burn in the fall? I don't really like candle scents at all. I don't burn candles anymore with kids.

What is your LO/LO's current favorite book? A reptile ABC book.

Current LO/LO's favorite word or sayings? 'I can't remember,' it's practically all he says after I ask him about preschool. Ugh.

Looking forward to anything in particular this month? YES! The 16th is when we find out what plane DH will fly for his career and where we're headed to next!

What is your favorite fall holiday? Thanksgiving!

Joy- I love the announcement. Very cute!

You know, we made announcements for the twinkles. They are still sitting in our house. ROFL We were so overwhelmed, we didn't even have the energy to address them. Of course, it was during that crazy period btw Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Name: Melanie

LO/LO's: Isaiah, Keira, and Sarafina

Tell us something about your dh we don't already know: Do you know anything about him? Biggrin I am not sure what I have really shared. He is super smart. I always wish I was as smart as him. He also played golf in high school and college.

Looking forward to anything in particular this month? For once, not really. We don't have anything big planned this month. We need the down time. October tends to be a busy month for us.

What is your favorite fall holiday? I actually really like Halloween, but we don't do a ton with it at our house. Mostly because we live on a major road and we don't even get trick-or-treaters at our house.

Do you like to bake in the fall? Umm...nope. I hate to cook. Biggrin I like baking a tad more than cooking, but I don't really enjoy that much either. HA! I always like the end product of baking though. Maybe when my kids are older I will enjoy it more. We do more of it now with Isaiah. He likes to help me measure and mix everything.

What candle scent do you like to burn in the fall? Anything pumpkin spice-ish. We rarely burn candles though. 3 cats and 3 kids = fire disaster potential! Biggrin

What is your LO/LO's current favorite book? Isaiah is enjoying many books. I have to admit that I enjoyed the first book in the Captain Underpants series. I never thought I would say that! Biggrin The girls love almost any book by Sandra Boynton and nursery rhymes.

Current LO/LO's favorite word or sayings? Sarafina likes to practice her opposites. So, we ofter hear her saying, "Up, down, up, down." HA! Keira likes to say "puppy." Not sure about Isaiah, although he was saying "Boo-yah" yesterday. Brought me back to my love of the Kim Possible series. Biggrin

I would love to share a new pic. However, I have nothing at work. I cannot e-mail myself any photos off my phone because I have apparently been doing too much FB on my phone when I am not on wifi. Lol My data usage is close to max. I think I start over tomorrow though. Biggrin
