October Fun

I can't believe October is almost over! We did a lot which is why it probably flew by.
Bella was Star of the Week, and in first grade that's a pretty big deal. Seth came and talked to the kids about what he does for a living. Somehow he made insurance sound interesting. Just kidding, Sethy. I was actually impressed when at the end a boy raised his hand and said "Where do you get the money to give to people if their house burns down?". Wow. Someone was listening.
He was a hit because he brought Marshmellow Munchies (It's a company he insures) for everyone and balls from one of the companies he works with.
Even with all that fun stuff the kids seemed more happy playing "stump the dad". A game where the class asks questions about Bella. Sadly Seth lost. The final score was 1;4.
Claire and her best friend Wyatt and cousin Elysia had a Halloween party. She wanted everyone to dress as superheros since that is what she's going to be for Halloween. Poor Wyatt, out numbered yet again by the girls. At one point Elysia turned to him and said "are you a bird?"....he was Captain America.
They played BINGO, colored, danced, listened to scary stories, decorated cookies, watched a Halloween show and jumped on the tramp.
And this is how Seth carves a pumpkin......
I left him alone for 5 minutes and came back to find this

Halloween Excitment!!!!

We're all getting pretty excited for Halloween this year. Bella has even decided to be a part of my family theme. This is very unusual, as you can see from years past she has always wanted to do her own thing (even as a 2 year old).
Can't wait to post pictures from this year.......just a few short days away!!!
Burt, Mary Poppins and one of the penguins, Curella DeVill, one of the puppies. Bella was a cat
I know the kids dressed up that year, but I can't find any pictures and considering the twins were about 7 weeks old I think I get a free pass on Halloween for that year, right?
Disco King & Queen (Bella was a ballerina and Claire was mini mouse)

Oven with a bun in it and the bun maker (Bella was a princess)
UPS Man with his Package (Bella wanted to be a monkey)

Motivation, Motivation......where have you gone?

What is wrong with me? First I haven't done a post in almost 3 weeks and the worst........
I have lost all motivation to work out.
I don't know what's happened to me. After I had Claire I was up at 6:00am, 5-6 days a week to work out and eating so well. Then the twins came and I did the same.
Now the twins are 2 and I'm in a slump.
Yesterday as I enjoyed my chocolate donut, you now the kind with 500 calories, I was thinking it's ok I'll go to the gym in the morning......then the morning rolled around and I slept in.
Working out for me isn't just about losing weight or maintaining weight, I really LOVE the way I feel after a good workout. yet for some reason I can't find the motivation to do it anymore.
Any advise?

Heard in the car

This was a conversation I heard between Claire and Wyatt this morning:
C: Why did the chicken go to the light bulb?
W: Laughs hysterically, so much that he can't stop.

What the? I guess I don't get 3 year old humor.
Love these two.
I better save this for the wedding video.
