Sleeping Beauty

Sadie picked her Halloween costume today. She just had to have this Sleeping Beauty dress.

Sequence

Our friends introduced us to a game a few weeks back we had never heard of before. It's called sequence. It's a card/board game. You hold 7 cards in your hand, those cards are scattered around the board and the goal is to get five in a row, twice. It's very simple to learn and we love it.
Sadie contemplating her next move. She got that she was supposed to look for the cards that were in her hand, but forgot to try for 5 in a row. But, Cayden? Oh, he got it. He is smiling in this picture, because he beat Tim and me this round. Go Cayden, Go Cayden! *notice him laying his fifth chip for a diagonal win*

Baby Ame

My super cute niece, Ame, came (along with the rest of the family) to Cayden's football game on Saturday. Isn't she adorable?
I LOVE her expression in this picture. I wish she was here so I could pinch her chubby little cheeks and give her a big squeeze.

T got a Haircut

I loved Tristan's long hair, but it was starting to get too long in the back. Kinda mullet-ish. And plus he is always having to push his bangs out of his eyes. So:
Before:
After:

I am really liking the after. He looks like a totally different kid. Cute, even with that silly face he's making!

Yikes!


Yesterday Sadie was running around with her Ballet Leotard on and I think she might have had it backwards. Good thing she had undies on :)

The Cole Bros. Circus

On October 4th we went to the circus and Aunt Leslie was in town, so she came too! It was pretty good. I was surprised.
The first act was these 3 guys on their motorcycle. First there was one guy and he was going around in this thing and going upside down. I was okay with that. Then another guy went in and that started freaking me out. Then a 3rd guy went in and I thought my heart was going to stop beating. The slightest goof up from one of the guys would be serious for all 3. It was crazy. And then it seperated. AGH!

This guy had some major balance skills. At one point in time he was running on the outside of it and jump up real high and landing on it. He lost his balance one time after he jumped, but landed okay.

The trapeze was just okay. It left me wanting more. They did about a 5 minute show, but this guy flying in the air spent about 3 of those minutes chalking up his hands before any stunt he did.

The Landing

On October 4th we went to the Landing. A beautiful park in Fort Walton Beach. It's right on the Sound and the wind is always blowing. It is gorgeous! We went there to pass some time before the Circus began.




Tim and the kids were having an acorn war and right after I took this picture, I got pelted.
