Halloween, wrestling, piano recital...life

JT has not had a challenging wrestling season this year. This kid has pinned every opponent in less than 30 seconds...My baby boy is getting bigger and tougher every day.
Avery got her bottom braces off at her last appointment and should get the top ones off at her next one..cross her fingers..She also is doing volleyball and is a setter and spiker. She is doing really well!
Halloween was fun this year. JT was himself...He had a wrestling tournament and knew he would cave and eat all the yummy foods and candy, so he stayed home from Nana's party. Avery was a unicorn, Evanna was Jack Skelington, Alyvia was a giraffe, Avonlea was Elsa and Titus decided to change his outfit a few times...lol..He ended up trick or treating as optimus prime. It was a fun night. Avonlea told me I needed to paint my face for Halloween. So i did. Jonathan had football practice and was late..(as usual) so he didn't dress up.
Life has been good. The kids are doing good and are healthy. Avery, Evanna and Alyvia had their piano recital last night. I will try and upload videos. 
 
 Just a little brother wishing he were a little bigger so he could wrestle.
 When you go to tuck your kids in bed and find your son who has a wrestling meet in the morning and regrets eating everything in site because he is over weight....Sweaters, coats, blankets galore...lol
 Just a boy who took 1st place at the show low tournament.
 Elsa (aka: Avonlea)
 These babies love each other!

Titus is 2!!!

This boy is so fun! He has us all wrapped around his little finger. I can't believe he is 2... Where did the time go?
Fun facts about Titus (moose, boose, mooser, skunk)

2. He is sooooo funny! He likes to make people laugh
3. He loves a bottle
4. He loves his Mom and Dad so much
5. He is starting to talk so much. His cutest most recent thing he says is "keeo bye" (mosquito bite)" and says "thank you" to anything you give him...so cute!
6. He rarely screams...but when he does, he tightens up his whole body so much that he shakes and screams so loud that we now understand what it means when people say "it made their ears bleed"
7. He doesn't like to sleep with any blankets. He likes to be cold.
