Zachary and Mommy All by ourselves!

Zachary is the best big brother.  After Will came home from the hospital Zachary only showed a few moments where I could tell he felt left out. He wasn't jealous or upset but you could tell he missed having his mommy to himself.  So I have tried really hard to set a side some time daily for just Zachary and me time.  Usually it is when Will is taking his afternoon nap.  The afternoon before our Peacock Pumpkin Carve Z and I made some spooky treats....Black Widow Spiders.
 Z was so excited to do a project with mom! Even more excited they were spiders!
This is a picture from the magazine!

 The final product!
 Making more! I love that Zachary is getting to be so independent that I can let him do the entire project without a major spill, accident, or catasrophe. 
We had a great afternoon and the spider sandwich cookies were yummy!

Trying to get Zachary to decide on a Halloween Costume was ridiculous.  We have a set of pirate costumes that I got for 75% off last year after Halloween from our Disney Cruise. So I kept asking Z if he wanted to be a pirate. Of course he didn't so I dropped it and he eventually decided on Spiderman.  Fast Forward to Halloween night. Kevin worked until 4:30. My inlaw's came to our house to see the boys. I must add that they came over in costume. It was hilarious. But I don't have pictures on this computer. Anyways, when Kevin came home he changed into regular clothes. Z flipped out. He said, "I thought you guys were going to be pirates!"  What? We totally forgot but since it was Halloween I went downstairs grabbed the costumes off the hangers and we threw the costumes on.  Here we are getting ready to walk out the door with an adorable Mickey Mouse. 

This cracks me up. Here's Kevin carrying W into Aunt Stephs for our annual first stop and dinner.

Aunt Steph loving on Will. Notice in the background Jerrytt as a computer robot. Perfect costume for him since he loves all kinds of techology (phones, computers, cameras, etc)

Next stop was my cousins house: Lisa, Darrin, Austin, & Wade. 

Then we went to my parents house. Unfortuately I have no pictures of this.  We have decided that next year we are actually going to go door to door trick or treating with Z and W.  We just always run out of time making our rounds to show off the boys.

Stay Tuned!

I promise I am going to start blogging again....I have to its the only way for me to document our life these days!

This past month we have watched the Cardinals win the WORLD SERIES, had our pumpkin carving challenge,  celebrated Halloween, celebrated my 33rd birthday, celebrated Will's 2 month b-day, and Kevin has been preparing for his board certification renewal. We have been busy!  So hang tight..I will be back.  On that parting note I will leave you with a few pictures of my boys in the "LUCKY" Cardinals Build A Bear Outfit.
