The Halloween Happenings...

Halloween is in full swing this week at the Springer house.  On Monday night for Family Home Evening, we decided some pumpkin carving was in order to get us in the holiday mood.  Me and Bianca had a blast taking out the "guts" while Jack stood by and complained that it was gross and "gisdusting"

Bianca wanted to show you what the guts looked like...

And here is me.  There is little evidence on the blog that I actually exist, so there you have it.

Hey Jack, do you want to join in on some family fun?

"No fankyou"

{see that little gash on Jacks cheek? Um, yeah...that was a trip to the ER for 3 stitches after an unfortunate stumble off the couch onto the corner our ottoman. Man, that kid is always keeping me on my toes.}

There are no pictures of the finished pumpkin, daddy had to step in to do the carving and I had my hands full trying to keep two curious kiddos from getting their fingers chopped off.   But it's a dandy...triangle eyes, a square nose, and a crescent moon for a mouth.  We kept it simple as the attention spans were dwindling :)


Tonight we had the annual Trunk-or-treat.  Bianca and Delaney each have an adorable tutu, so I decided to make them into charming little garden fairies...it's amazing what can be done with some hot glue and dollar store flowers and wings!
Bianca was beyond ecstatic to have such a pretty outfit to wear...

There you go, work it girl.

Baby D was pretty indifferent. 

 Or maybe she didn't love it afterall.

And then we had an outlaw.  It is impossible to get a good picture of Jack if there is ANYTHING going on around him...this kid won't sit still for a second.  I'll see if I can snap a better picture on halloween.

We have already had a fun filled two days...we'll have to see what the rest of the week brings!! stay tuned for more!

This n' that...

I can't believe how quickly time is flying by around here.  Baby Laney will be FIVE weeks old tomorrow...I seriously feel like we JUST brought her home from the hospital. 

My parents came last week to see the kiddos and give Laney the love-ups for the a couple of days.  It was a perfectly low key weekend filled with stories, couch lounging, baby holding, Bianca giggling, and Jack chasing. 

Here's my cute mom...man I miss this lady.

Bianca couldn't get enough of my dad.  I don't think I have ever heard her giggle so hard as when Papa was around.


Over the last few weeks Delaney has been surprised us with some crazy red hair!! Every day it gets a little more red...I suppose scotty's red whiskers and my Grandma's fiery red hair is where she gets it.

I love that I have a blonde, a brunette, and a redhead...not many people get to have a "neapolitan family"

I can't wait to see how red it will really come in.... 


This is DEFINATELY worth mentioning...drumroll please...

We replaced Bianca's gross fliplops!!

With these adorable rainboots...

 It sure felt good to toss those awful shoes in the trash. 


I still have a million pictures to post...Delaney's sweet Blessing, Jack's FOURTH birthday, and other random things. 

Be patient my friends, I'll get there!!

checking in...

 I know I've been a bit of an absentee blogger these days, but I will jump back on the wagon soon.  For now, you can all rest assured that this little darling does this for most of the day{and night, lucky us}...

Infact, we rarely hear a peep out of her.

I have to say, the transition from 2 to 3 has not been as bad as I anticipated.  Ask me again when I venture out in public on my own for the first time though...I might have something different to say!  I do look forward to 5 o'clock more than ever lately...when daddy walks through the door and gives me a little break. 

And I still have yet to experience ALL three kiddos crying at once.  shhh, don't tell.  I don't want to jinx myself.  

Life is good.

No, life is great.

I have lots of great pictures to post, stay tuned!
