Audrey: October

Audrey loves yogurt and loves to slurp it through a straw!
 Such a good little sleeper and check out those lashes!
 There isn't a lot of things to go and see in town so when we get a little desperate we go to the toy store and play with everything they have and I make a mental Christmas list. This Barbie jeep is not on it :)
 Audrey loves to do crafts especially painting and glitter.
 Audrey and Devon love to play out in the yard and climb this little embankment pretty much everyday. I usually just send them out in underwear, shoes and the cat. They dig for rocks and bugs and work out all that energy at the end of the day.
 Trying out daddy's shoes. Can't go any where without her blankie.
 We go to a story time at the bookstore where they read and do songs and the kids get a juice box and a granola bar. Audrey usually ends up rifling through my purse and "trying on" AKA ruining my sunglasses.
 Audrey is terrified ...TERRIFIED when Joe puts shaving cream on his face in the morning to shave. She will run to the closet, to my arms and hides her face or under this end table, cry and cover her face with her blankie. She won't come out til he has totally washed it off. Such a sensitive little girl.

Devon: October

Devon loves to pose for pictures and, mostly, requires some for of whimsical addition to his outfit. He often brings me something, like this lovely mask, so I don't feel left out.
He is also quite fond of the mustache. I drew this one on him with my eye liner.

 He drew this one himself.
 Cousin Charlie came to visit and these two had the best time together. They are both so mild mannered and got along quite well. It's too bad they don't get to see each other more often.
 Well hello there!
 "Sleeping" in mama and daddy's bed.
 Realized I was taking his picture and couldn't stop from cracking a smile.
 Since Sam is now quite sick we have started letting him go outside in the yard on a leash so he gets familiar with the perimeter. Devon loves to follow him around as he explores.
 Sigh. I love letting the kids go in the sand box, but it usually ends up with Audrey having a diaper full of sand.
 At the top of Devon's favorite food list is definitely pizza. No matter where we go he will always eat pizza.
Devon loves to play with cousins at grandma's house and Sadie and Devon played dress ups. He doesn't care, or even notice, that it's a dress he just wants to have fun.

Devon: September

Ready for battle!
Devon loves flashlights, laser fingers and anything shiny. But seriously, who doesn't?
He loves to play ball, catch, soccer, just not in any official capacity. I think he's over playing on a soccer team.
Pictures taken by Devon.

Devon's daddy caught a hawk moth and did a science experiment to feed it honey. It has a tongue about the length of it's body and it will eat honey off the Q-tip.
Protect yourself, grandma!
Kitty the tortoise is a sweet pet to be sure. The kids feed her strawberries and tomatoes and love to pet her neck.
Sweet boy.
Doesn't like to get dirty while he paints. Apron please!
I LOVE this picture. Just hanging with daddy on the bed.
Daddy had a birthday this month and Devon helped me to the lettering on the banner I made. The "B" is my favorite.

Devon caught a moth in the yard and would not stop making this face.
Devon has always been such a good shopper, but for some reason he started to cry and putting him on my shoulders was the only way to get him to stop. Whatever works!
I can't convey how much I love this man and this little boy. 
On our trip to Mt. Lemon we caught several horny toads and explored the woods.

Devon got to help me make the cake for his 4th birthday. It was blue.
Very, very blue.
Donuts for the BIG 4th birthday breakfast!
Chucky Cheese for lunch with the grandparents, pizza, games and "surprises" (some prizes).

Super hero decorations complete with a spider web.
My Spiderman cake didn't turn out quite like I hoped, but I was overly ambitious as always. Still, I thought it was alright, he got to help me make it and he loved it so that's all that matters. Happy birthday little guy!
