We love Burrtec Waste!

So! I sent the pictures of Ben dressed up like a trash truck greeting our awesome Garbage Man, Nacho, to Burrtec letting them know how awesome he was and how Ben looks up to him. This company has been nothing but amazing to Ben! After my email, Nacho came by our house and let Ben sit in the cab of the Trash Truck! Today, Nacho and his supervisor came to our house to present Ben with Burrtec goodies! Ben was a little overwhelmed, but has not stopped talking about it since they left!
Don't forget to thank your Garbage man! They do a great service for us! :)

Trash Truck Costume!

All Ben wanted to be for Halloween this year was a trash truck. Papa came through for him with flying colors! He made the costume AND went down to Burrtec and got "official" stickers and an official hat for Ben!

We met the trash man on garbage day. He was just as excited as Ben was! :)

Growth Charts

My kids are growing like weeds! My food bill alone has double; not to mention the clothes and shoes they are both going through!
One of my fondest memories from my childhood is my dad getting out the cereal box and lining my brothers and I up in the doorway to the pantry. That growth chart still hangs in my parents' house (even though this is house number 8 from that original pantry door frame!). Tyson and I have started a similar tradition with our kids. We line them up , take out a cereal box and chart their growth along our pantry door frame. I hope their memories will be just as fond as mine.

We measured our kids again this past Sunday. They seemed to have flip-flopped. Ben has been growing by inches (many inches) each time we measure him. Now it's Sarah's turn to sprout up that fast.

First Day of School!

Because I was feeling quite sentimental this morning, here is Sarah's picture from her preschool days. This is her "red" 3 year old class. Ben is also in the "red" 3 year old class, too! (although different preschools).

Ben was so excited to have a "first day" just like his big sister! He was ready for preschool. In the car he told me, just drop me off mom and say "bye" in the car.
