life rearranged

It's Friday again, the last day of September, and I'm linking up for InstaFriday again. Check our Life rearranged at all of the other great bloggers who are linking up this week.

The crabs for the crab races at the birthday party were delivered this week. They weren't supposed to come until Wednesday of next week so we had to hurry and get ready for them. Now we have to keep them all alive for over a week. Twelve were dead upon arrival. Parker wanted to touch one, but wasn't a fan when Daddy put it in his lap.

Mimi came over this week and helped me assemble all of the favor for the ocean birthday.
Baylor was so happy to see all of the crabs when he got home from school on Friday.
The shells are painted and are so fun. They are huge compared to Hermie and were very active. We had to get sand, a big house, and a few other things but we have them all in a large tub. The man we ordered them from said they would all be fine together, we'll see.

Baylor has been busy writing his own stories this week. They had an author visit their school on Tuesday and ever since he has been on a book writing mission. This one was titled pumpkins and was all about a place called Pumpkin Town. All of the people in the town are made out of pumpkins and they only eat pumpkins too. He is also busy writing about Grandma Smith who is a villain and robs banks, steals motorcycles, and jumps out of jets. Quite a character!

Baylor made a super spy cape and Cooper was his secret spy assistant.

I cooked dinner four nights this week. The pot roast was so delicious, Tom even had three helpings. Cooper ate carrots, which is huge for him!

I love nap time pictures.

We took Maddy to school one morning. They had fun doing some art before we left.

He is a tornado. He made this mess alone within five minutes.

Looking good Mr. Cooper. We were sending a birthday gift at Von Maur and he kept trying on all of the accessories in the girl's department.

Mimi got Baylor a magician's cape. He loves it!

At gymnastics this week they had to try to kick Frankenstein while swinging on the bars.

It was their favorite part.

We love having Uncle Joe home!

He stops over to visit and they are so happy!

Driving buddies.

This week the challenge was to include something you made. I'm not overly crafty but I did make these centerpieces for Mops with the help of my friend Andrea.

We have 8 tables this year and each table is a different game. Inside the box we keep the name tags, pens, paper, mints, and soap. They are super cute on the tables.

We even were able to find all of the games at Goodwill so the cost was very minimal.
