Fall Frenzy

OK...I've got A LITTLE (to say the least) catching up to do on my blog! I have yet to post from BooderBeans TWO birthday parties, our annual Fall Break camping trip, and many other things this month. BUT before i do a major catch up post...lets just focus on the here and now--Halloween and Fall 2011!

I introduce to you...our Deer Hunter and his Deer!!

(photos aren't that good, YOU try getting a fidgety 22 month old to sit still when there are pumpkins and a costume to play with!)

Over Fall Break we took the boys on our annual Krout Family Campout. Had a great time, great weather...and oops-a broken camera so hardly no photos were taken. BUT on our way to the campout we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and took the boys to a great pumpkin patch
and had a great ol' time.

The boys were so ready to go into the fields and get their pumpkins but I had to play mom for a minute, and make them pose for the traditional photos :)

BrotherBean was trying to be big like big brother and tried so hard to find the perfect pumpkin! after roaming around the patch for a while he finally decided that "WAY over there" was the perfect one :) Love this little man and his milk belly! Love my chunky monkey!

My big man BooderBean was so proud to be a big boy this year and do more in cut his own pumpkin and all!

love. them. to. pieces.

A 5 year old interview

Well Mr. BooderBean has now been 5 for four days and i finally had to chance to sit him down for his 5 year old interview.  As i mentioned before, i decided it would be fun this year to ask YOU all to ask him questions and let him answer them...some were funny because the questions were way out there so i told him if he didn't understand the question then to just give me a funny answer, which he loved!

Now, folks, these answers are straight from his mouth, no filtering or editing was done--although maybe i should have, i just wanted to remember years from now exactly what he was thinking at age 5.

What would be the best day ever for you as an almost 5-year-old?
  • "A day of playing all day long with my toys in my bedroom"
What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?
  • "Playdoh Piano"
Now that you are FIVE, what is your favorite thing to do on the weekend?
  • "Play games on daddy's iPhone"

BooderBean are you full of Poop? (this was from Military Man's very best friend-our "Uncle Mike", who is currently deployed in Afghanistan-BooderBean just adores this man!!)
  • "That is not a propriate word" (as he said with a scowl on his face, hahaha)
How do you like school?
  • "It is good"
What is your favorite memory of when you were a young lad (4)?
  • "Going to Big School and playing with my little brother"
What is the best thing about turning 5?
  • "That i get to chew bubble gum now" 
What will you be able to do now that you are 5 that you couldn't do when you were 4?
  • "I can touch the top of the counter at home now" (what??? he could touch the top of the counter at age 2)

What does your mommy do for a living?
  • This is a 2 part answer as he didn't understand if the question was what does your mommy do OR what does she do for work. So he gave both: 
    "what does my mommy do? well at night i know that mommy lays in bed and watches TV and then falls asleep with it paused and then it's on night long because sometimes i get up in the middle of the night and she is asleep with the TV on, she does this because she is so tired i think" HAHA good job buddy, yes, mommy is tired isn't she :)
    "what does my mommy do for work? She probably gets to work every day and gets a cup of coffee and then does her computer work" HAHA does he know his mommy or what!!
What does your daddy do for a living?
  • Again with the 2 part answer:
    "What does my daddy do for work? My daddy works for the Armory" notice he said FOR the Armory, not AT the Armory? HAHA
    "What does my daddy do? Well daddy lets me play on his iPhone sometimes and he smokes cigarettes"--yup, that's right he said this sparked a whole conversation for sure.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
  • "A cowboy that has a big farm and a construction worker"
If you only got to keep one thing you own, what would it be?
  • "How come I only get to keep one thing?" So I explained that if for some reason something happened and we only were able to keep one of his toys or something what would it be-he thought for only one second and then answered with tears in his big brown eyes "I would keep pig and home blanket" Home Blanket has been his blanket since he was only a few months old, and both stuffed pig and home blanket go literally everywhere we go!
Do you think your mommy is a control freak? Lol (p.s. Some of the best mommies are...I should know!) ;)--this is from my friend, who kinda knows i might be.
  • "Piano" i told him he could make something up if he didn't understand :)
What is your advice for other big brothers out there?
  • "To take care of the little brothers, I would do this by if there was a bad guy that came to the house, i would beat the bad guy up!"
What do you think of your little brother?
  • "That I love him!"
What is your favorite cartoon show?
  • "I have two, they are Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Jake and the Never land Pirates, can I watch a show now????"
If you could go anywhere for one day, where would it be and who would you want to take with you?
  • "I would go to a water park! I would take my brother, my mommy, and my daddy, oh and Maggie and Gunner. Oh wait--Maggie and Gunner can't swim, they are dogs, never mind"
What is your favorite color at age 5?
  • "Red and Blue"
What is your favorite food?
  • "Shrimp, of course, and orange juice and grape juice"
What is your favorite thing to wear?
  • "Jeans and boots, well Wranglers and boots"
Thanks our BOY! Happy 5 years BooderBean Krout!!

We had a Cowboy Cookout for him at the Krout family farm and had fishing, a bonfire, hotdogs over the fire, smores, etc.! He loves hotdogs and wanted to take some "funny face pictures" he told me.

I managed to get one photo before he tore into the gifts!

I included a few photos from his family birthday party we held last week.  Photos from his friend birthday party we are holding this weekend will come next week.
