This year, Optimis Prime (aka Eli) was the master of YELLING Trick or Treat! He would let me know what house to go to by saying, "They have their lights on, we can go to that one....why don't these people have their light on?" He was crackin' me up! I can't believe how much candy he received (mind you we only went to one street of houses but people were given him handfuls. Earlier in the day, we went to a carnival. The boys had a blast in the maze (so much that they went through the maze five times!) We also took participated in the Pumpkin Fair at the library....lots of halloween fun for The Crosby Boys. Jace wasn't too sure of his Batman outfit to the point he would only wear the cape!
Very soon, our boys will be uncles. Justin's girlfriend, Faith, is expecting a little boy any day. Christmas is going to be really crazy this year.
I have included a lot of various fall pictures. We went to Fritzler Farms where we went through a monster...Eli loved it! They also had duck races, bikes, jumping mats, sand box filled with corn, and of course a pumpkin patch. We also went to a fall festival in the rain! Eli and Jace could have stayed there forever....it was a little chilly and wet so I had to move them along. WOW! We were busy in the month of October.
Eli is enjoying STRIDE. He has a Magna Doodle in the car that he plays with whenever we were on the road. The other day, he said, "Mama and Daddy...look!" We turned around and he had written Mama, Daddy, Jace, and Eli." We were so proud of him...and his smile was from ear to ear!
Jace is a little mimic...he copies everything Eli does. He will probably have to have two surgeries to close his cleft palate...oh my! He is also receiving speech services from STRIDE. Lately, he loves to growl and say boo. He can also be a stubborn little two year old....and he hates to get in trouble. He will cry and cry. He still is a champ at going to bed and taking naps. Life with two boys is wild and crazy. They love to wrestle, play chase, and just be silly little boys :)
This post is for you Heather...lol! Anytime you want to hang around two busy boys, just let us know...haha!
