Blue guitar or green guitar?

Which one did Santa order from Zulily for Banjo?  The blue guitar or the green guitar???  Well, “he” decided that Banjo didn’t need a guitar at all.  But rather this adorable little Ukulele!

 

I cannot wait until Christmas morning for Banjo to open this fun instrument.  He’s going to be so excited to learn to play it and it’s the perfect size for an almost 5 year old!  And can you believe that it’s only $16.99 at Zulily???  That’s an amazing deal!  Plus, with your free $10 that makes it only $6.99.  I majorly heart Zulily!

There’s still time to get your free $10 to use at Zulily!  Banjo may want Santa to bring him a Bumblebee Transformer for Christmas, but I want Santa to bring him a guitar.  Maybe this green one?

 

Or in blue?

 

If Ruby was old enough I have a feeling that Santa would be bringing her one of these violins:

Love the colors!

Maybe I can find her one in a few years.  Ahem.  I mean maybe Santa’s elves can create one for her in a few years.  😉

All of the above can be found a Zulily and are at major savings right now!

It’s not quite Thanksgiving, but the man in red has already appeared at the mall.  We weren’t able to leave without paying him a visit.

Banjo told Santa that he wants a Bumblebee Transformer.  This must be something that he picked up at school, because Banjo has never watched Transformers.  But he is certain that he needs to find Bumblebee under the tree.  We shall see.  😉

Banjo couldn’t keep his eyes off of the jolly old elf:

 

And Ruby just had a curious look on her face the entire time:

At least she didn’t cry!

October, I miss you.

Here’s a last look at October.  Glorious October.

I really do kind of miss October.  There’s just something about that month that gets me every time.  Maybe… Because of all the great fall family activities.  Or maybe…  Because of all the pumpkins, ghosts, and goblins.  The fall decor?  I certainly love that part of it!  Sure fall carries into November, but is it the same?  I mean it’s November.  😉

Here’s looking to the month that’s all about Thanksgiving and all that I am truly thankful for.  It’s another holiday month to spend with my family.  A time to reflect on my many, many blessings.  November, I welcome you and I’m grateful for you.

Spidey and the Peacock

Hello dandy friends!  Consider yourself very, very lucky.  I’ve stepped away from the candy bowl long enough to give you an account of our Halloween festivities.  😉

This year Banjo was really into the idea of begging for candy around the neighborhood.  We humored his interest with the typical parental candy fee for taking him.  “One for you.  Two for me.”  🙂

Of course he went as the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

And what Spidey is complete without his loyal sidekick…

None other than the Pretty Peacock.

They were quite the hit of the block.

                             

Notice the missing peacock headpiece?  It didn’t survive the attempt to be eaten by Ruby.  *sigh*  Oh, well.  I think she’s cute enough to pull off the costume without the hair feathers.  🙂

Goodbye October.  Hello November!

Getting new shoes is always more fun when there’s a slide involved.

It also doesn’t hurt when the new shoes happen to be Spider Man ones that light up…

Happy Tuesday!

This sweetness was captured from the kitchen window clear inside the house. Now you’ve gotta look ever so closely to see what I spy.

I spy a Banjo who was excited to go on a “campout” with his little stuffed friends, blanket, and flashlight. Ruby was sleeping and it made me smile to watch him playing in this quiet moment. Then he came back inside to only stomp around and be ever so loud. What part of “Whisper. The baby is sleeping” can’t a 4-year-old understand??? *sigh*

Soccer Boy

Banjo is becoming quite the little soccer pro.  Okay, okay…  So he’s not really a pro yet.  I’m just being a proud momma.  🙂   But he’s definitely learning how to play and having a lot of fun out there.  Which, in my opinion, is the most important thing!  Both Audi and I were athletes in high school, so we do like sports.  However, we aren’t the type of parents to put a lot of pressure on our kid to go out there and be the next David Beckham.  If Banjo excels in a given sport then that’s fine.  If it’s not his thing then that’s fine too.  Above everything else we want him to learn the fundamentals of the sport, good sportsmanship, what it’s like to be part of a team, and to have fun doing it!  This introduction to soccer is doing just that for our little guy.  He and his team mates are so adorable out on the field running back and forth.  Not really always knowing which direction they are supposed to go in (they are 4 and 5 year olds), but determined to get the ball no matter what!  In fact they often remind me of a gaggle of geese out on the field.  The ball is kicked and they all take off trailing after it.  It’s really cute.  Just like our little soccer boy.  🙂

 

i heart corn mazes

Remember how I told you yesterday about my love for corn mazes?  Brookdale Farms has more than just corn.  Like…

A giant tractor tire:

That makes for a dandy place to play and hide!

  

 

A straw bale playland:

Cute tire swings:

A cow train:

That has a tail!

And…

Let’s just have another look at that gigantic, glorious corn maze, shall we?

Yep.  I really do heart corn mazes.  But mostly I heart visiting them with my little family.  🙂

One of my favorite things about October and fall?  Corn mazes!  We had a crazy fun time with our friends getting lost in the corn at Brookdale Farms.

 

Don’t you just love all the fun fall festivities???  What are some of your favorites?
