New piece of furniture

When we were deciding what electives BB would take this year, he ask if he could be in the Band.  Being the sports obsessed mom that I am, I was alittle surprised but at the same time proud that he wanted to be involved in other things.  When he decided what instrument he wanted to play, he knew that he wanted to be part of the percussion section.  Do you know what comes along with being in percussions....having your very own marimba to practice on!

don't look at the messy boy's room!

Yeah, I know you're jealous.  This thing is gynormous!!!  Definitely not part of the decorating plan for BB's room.  What can I do though, we try to be supportive of everything our kids want to do!

Speaking of decorating plans, I can't wait to share why husbands should not be any part of decorating any room of your home!  Stay tuned....

Fall Catch Up

I promise I'm going to get the hang of this blogging one day.  I can't believe it almost Thanksgiving!  Fall is flying by.  We had such a fun Halloween.  We went trick-or-treating with one of BB's friends and his family.  Lulu said from the beginning that she was going to be a ghost.  I made what I thought was the cutest costume...only she was not impressed.  She wanted to be a SCARY ghost.  I don't know what there is about my children - they both love scary things but are the biggest chickens.  It was a last minute decision for BB to dress up.  He is definitely on the line of being too old.  But I LOVE Halloween and had to give in this last year:)  We went to Target and he immediately saw his costume - The Situation!  I guess you know you're famous when people dress up like you at Halloween.  So here's a picture of my little ghost with The Situation.

The week after Halloween, BB finished up his first year of middle school football.  He had a great year.  I just wish I would have gotten more pics:(

Probably the most exciting thing to happen was BB went to his first dance tonight.  Of course he didn't act like it was that big of a deal until I told him I was going to chaperone!  He was horrified!  Unfortunately, I didn't get to go.  According to the few details I could get out of him and from Facebook (I know, sad) he was meeting a little girl there.  Don't worry though, I will pry every detail out of him when he gets home.  I'll let you know....

lil' sis wanted to be in the pic too!
