hey hey ya'll! september is here! that means we have a busy month ahead of us. good busy, though...lots of birthdays and celebrations and of course back to school routines are under way.
speaking of back to school...roman's school, st. gregory the great, held a chickfila spirit night where a part of the proceeds go to his school, so you know we hit it up with the rest of the sgg crew. it was packed! roman got to see a lot of his friends and we sat with aubrey and her mom and sister too. roman loved sitting next to aubrey, she is his little buddy!
after dinner, roman and aubrey got ice cream cones and roman was so sweet. he kept giving gianna a lick here and there, but she wanted more. so, he ended up giving her the very last bit of it. you would have thought that you had given her a pony. she was so happy. see her little ice cream stump? ha ha.
while poppa was at the gym and roman was napping, the colella girls got a little silly!
we have jumped on the rainbow loom bandwagon! for those of you that don't know, it is the latest craze with the kids. it is a kit you can buy at michaels. you get a plastic loom and hook and a pack of rubberbands. you can buy more rubberbands in lots of colors. then you can find all kinds of patterns on youtube to make different kinds of bracelets or a necklace or ring. right now, our evenings are filled with bracelet making for all the kids coming to roman's birthday party this weekend. he wants each friend to have their own bracelet with special colors that he picks out. i love that he is so thoughtful like that. i'm thinking that we will finish up the goodie bags tonight...thank goodness! i'm starting to feel like i work in a little rubberband bracelet sweatshop at night! haha
on sunday, the kids were looking so cute for church and we were actually a little early, so i tried to get some good pics on the front porch. roman wouldn't sit on the step because facing this way makes the sun in his eyes (i swear he has the most sensitive eyes...must be because they are so blue!), so all i got was this little stankface!
then, roman squatted down to be on gianna's level and she squatted down too. i told him to stand up straight because i could fit them both in the picture, but they both decided it was more fun to just squat. and then, toby just decided to water the flowers. i feel like i have three kids sometimes. can't a mom just get a good picture?
well, i guess this is as good as it gets. roman is trying not to laugh and i guess it really is hard to get them both in the picture. i guess i owe roman an apology!
since we are having roman's party at our house, toby was pressure washing the back patio. isn't it funny how kids think that the things we think are chores are really fun? i guess he was making his own patio art...
and here we have our newest child laborer in action...
