Fire Trucks, Birthdays and Dr Appointments

I could never thank my hubby enough for giving me moments like this where I get to spend everyday at home with my kiddos.
I am absolutely crazy about these two.
As far as homeschooling goes we are taking it one day at a time.  Bubby G goes back and forth from being interested in "school" to not being interested, but there are still lots of ways he continues to learn without him even realizing it.  We are reading lots of books together.  His favorites right now are the ones about dinosaurs.
To go along with dinosaurs and the letter D we went outside to dig for some dinosaur bones of our own.
He worked very hard...
And eventually found two dinosaur bones....also known as chicken bones, but he didn't know that.
Taking time to chase a butterfly.  The white blob a few inches to the left of Bubby G's hand is actually the butterfly.  I think he spent at least 10 minutes running around laughing and chasing that silly butterfly.
How bout a quick hello from KitCat?
Sitting down waiting for more butterflies.
Bubby G absolutely loved drinking his milk with his straw.  
Playing in his sensory tub.  We had corn every where that day....and we are still finding corn in odd places through out the house, but he loved it.
Sissy G is really starting to love her jumper.
I think this girl could be happy and content no matter where she is....she just loves to smile.
Getting some exercise.  The days are starting to get cooler.
Helping Mommy make supper. 
Apparently this is a cheese pizza with cheese only in the middle of the pizza.
I evened out the cheese some and then let Bubby G add the pepperoni.  He absolutely loved making the pizza with me.
The next morning Bubby G wanted to paint.
He said he didn't put the paint in his mouth but for some reason I didn't believe him.
Our sweet Sissy G is still a great sleeper.  She also has fallen in love with her Bubby G's Thomas the train blanket.  Good thing Bubby G is good about sharing.....most of the time, that is.
Did I mention its getting colder.
At library time this week the fire department came to teach kids about fire prevention and what to do in case of a fire.
The fire fighter taught the kids that if they ever are caught on fire they need to cover their face and roll.
The fire fighter demonstrating how to roll.
Bubby G was loving it.
So was Sissy.
Then they passed out fire hats to everyone.
Bubby G shared his hat with Sissy.
Not sure how much she appreciated that.
Then we got a big surprise when Daddy walked through the door.
Bubby G seeing Dad for the first time.
Telling Daddy all about it.
Then it was time to go outside and see the fire truck.
I love how he had his hand in his pocket while he stood and listened to the fire fighter talk.
It was kind of cold so Sissy G stayed cuddled up to her daddy.
They had one of their fire fighters get dressed in all of his gear so that the kids could see what he looked like.  Bubby G didn't get scared until the fire fighter talked through his mask.
Then he got scared.  But he got over it pretty quick.
Covering his ears while they sounded the fire truck siren.
A cute picture of my three cuties in front of the firetruck.
I feel very blessed that Bubby G absolutely loves being around his lil sister.
He is already trying to teach her things.  It is so cute to watch.
We also celebrated Mr. G's birthday this last week.  We got to go on just our second date night since Bubby G was born.  We went out to eat together and then went back and watched the Cardinals win the NCLS with family.  It was a great night.
We also made daddy his own birthday cake at home for when Grandma and Papa came to visit.  Bubby G helped put on the sprinkles.
How about three cute smiley pictures of Sissy G....Ready?....Here's 1
 How sweet is this picture?  After daddy got done preaching last Sunday night Bubby G ran up to his daddy and finished the service in his daddy's arms.  Priceless!!
We also took Sissy G to the doctor this week. 
Why...you might ask.
Hmmm.... let me think.
Because this sweet girl turned 4 months old.  In the last two months she gained more than 4 lbs and grew almost 3 inches.  She is 18 lbs 15 oz and 27 inches long.  Off the chart in both height and weight.  Good job Sissy G.  Unfortunately she had to get shots which were not fun to watch.
But she took a nice good long nap when we got home.
Every day is so much fun and I feel so very blessed.  Thank you Lord!!!!
