Yesterday my mom and I made a load of candy to eat and give out. We made: peanut butter cups, chocolate covered cherries, gumdrops, hazelnut truffles, almond roca and bon bons. YUM YUM YUM YUM YUM! KJ was a great taste tester and I think Lainee was wishing she could be one.
The kids are just growing up so fast. They continues to amaze and entertain us. I learned I now have to watch what I say seeing as how KJ told Chad what him and Lainee got him for Christmas. He's also becoming quite the little dancer and singer. He really loves to play tunes on his piano and have dance parties around the house (and we like it, too!). Lainee is learning how to sit by herself and she is already trying to do the scooting motion, especially if there is something she wants to get. Chad and I are wondering if we create scooters rather than crawlers? We will see which direction little bug goes in.
I hope this holiday season is good to you and the next year brings you all health and happiness.

*I've been hoping for a little neice or nephew for a long time and Ashley and Elijah broke the news that they are expecting over Thanksgiving. Awesome!!!

Nicole and I planned out a day of Halloween festivities, but they all somehow ended up jam packed into a 2-3 hour period. We did not plan on having to freeze our sugar cookie dough after getting it together and therefore we were baking/decorating at the same time we needed to get the pumpkins carved. I ended up skipping out on the carving and cleaning up while everyone else made cool pumpkins to decorate the porch with. It all worked out; however, we were unable to dress up like we had planned because of the lack of time. Nicole pulled through and was a 50's girl for the night, but I missed out on being the black cat and we never got to dress Keesha up as the Geisha girl (it would have been really cool!). I threw a beanie on though for trick or treating and called myself a pro snowboarder. HA! We know that is far from the truth and therefore made a great costume in my opinion. :)
Trick Or Treating was fun. We had a Buzz Lightyear and a Pink Ladybug. We made a quick stop at mom & dad's seeing as how they were trying to keep themselves away due to swine flu exposure. We explained to KJ that we could see them but he wouldn't be able to give them any loves for a few more days. He actually did pretty well considering he hadn't seem them in a few weeks due to their trip to China/Japan. We then visited some more relatives and made a quick stop downtown. Lainee was ready to be home by the time we finished, so it was a pretty quick trip, but fun nonetheless.
Nicole and I had also planned a Halloween dinner, so when we got home Nicole was boiling some fettucini noodles that were dyed black for some black noodles and sauce. We were going to go all out and decorate the garlic bread too but we were once again in kind of a hurry so we just did everything else normally.
Here are some pictures of our Halloween Fun:

In other news, both kids seem to be growing so fast. Lainee is now over three months and just rolled over for the first time yesterday! She then did it a few more times! She's also starting to (baby) talk more and her and KJ just love each other, it's really adorable. KJ is just about a full blown conversationalist now. It's pretty fun when you can just talk to your 2 year old and he, for the most part, knows what you are talking about. He is responding with "huh?" alot, well to almost every question which can kind of drive you crazy, but it is still cute. As for Chad and I, we are both doing very well. I'm sure I drive him crazy with my current worry: the swine flu. I'm trying my best to keep my kids healthy I don't want the swine flu or any other flu or illness in our house, ugh! I just need to remember to pray and rely on God, he is in control not me and I know worrying about it definitely won't do me any good.
Here is a video of Lainee rolling over!

Here he is with daddy and his fish!
He's growing up so fast, hopefully next time I'm there to see him catch his fish.
Here are some newer pictures of Lainee, she is growing up so fast too!
This weekend we are heading to Shelton to have KJ's birthday party with family over there, followed be another one here next weekend. He is going to be TWO! Crazy!! Blog birthday coverage to come!

--Lainee had her 2 month check up (@ 7 weeks) She weighed 10 lbs. and measured 22 3/4 inches, she's growing like a weed! We also found out that what we thought was baby acne was actually eczema. :( Luckily, we are keeping it under control now with eucerin and hydrocortizone cream when we need it. Hopefully she will outgrow it!
--KJ got an Elmo potty book yesterday and since he has already gone potty TWICE in the potty after letting us know he needed to go. What a good boy, he is growing up so fast!
--Chad put our patio in this past weekend. It looks great and he is waiting for the rock to settle some before making it permanent. *Pics to come!
--Lainee is currently fighting a cold or allergies, I'm not sure which. She has a very snotty nose and it makes it hard for her to sleep on her back. Poor girl, at least she waited 8 weeks before getting sick, unlike her big brother who got one when he was only 3 weeks old! KJ was a little stuffy on Sunday but was fine the day after, so maybe she is just fighting off what he had? I'm not sure, I just know I don't like when either of my kiddos are under the weather.
--KJ is going to be 2 in a little over two weeks!!! Where does the time go???
--We got our pictures back from JC Penny's, I will post some so you can get a better look at them.
--I think those are the main things for now, if I think of anything else I will add it on here. Hope this finds you all well!

In other news, 4th of July was nice. KJ liked the fireworks enough to not get upset at them but he was still a little unsure. He watched the majority of them from Nana's lap on which he proceeded to fall asleep and stay asleep, I might add, with all of the whistles/bangs/explosions. We had family in town since Wednesday between Chad's mom and grandma and my sisters and their hubbies. I think they all thought they would get to meet a baby before leaving town. I love spending time with family and there are still many more events happening this summer that they will come back home for.
Here's to hoping the next blog post is about the birth of Lainee... or maybe it's a boy and he is mad at us that we have been calling him a girl name and she/her... maybe he doesn't want to come until we figure it out!?! Either way, I hope I'm writing about a newborn in the next go around. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers for a safe and healthy labor, delivery, baby and mommy!

Daddy cut his hair, too! Here are a couple good pictures of my boys together, taken on Father's Day.
