Last weekend Grandpa Bell came to visit! I also got my wisdom teeth out last Friday, so I'm sure that I wasn't the greatest company in the world I also can't tell you for sure all the fun things they did with Grandpa since I spent most of the weekend relaxing in bed. I know it involved a lot of eating out and they were kind enough to bring me a few milkshakes. They also went to this kids event that had all sorts of fun things. It had a giant inflatable slide, but apparently Brady chickened out on that one. He did enjoy looking at the fire truck with Grandpa, and I think Grandpa enjoyed that too since he was a fire fighter for quite a while! There was also an area with balls and bats, which I'm sure you could have guessed would be his favorite. This boy absolutely loves balls and bats! Thanks for visiting, Grandpa! Come back when I can play (and eat) next time.

To finish celebrating Quentin's birthday, we carved our pumpkins. Brady L-O-V-E- LOVED it! He was not so helpful on the actual carving, but he sure loved picking the goop out. And then putting it back in. I made him wear one of my t-shirts in case he got super nasty. I remember we always used to wear my dad's old shirts for potentially dirty projects. What a good idea, Mom!
Yesterday was Quentin's birthday. He turned 26, and our celebrating began with dinner with my parents and Kirk and Kirsten at his favorite restaurant, Texas Roadhouse. It was Kirksten's first time there, and I think they liked it. The food there is sooooooo yummy! Brady always fills up on the rolls and he loves the applesauce. When you go there for your birthday, they make you get on this saddle, so I made sure to bring my camera along so we could always remember :) They even let Brady sit in the saddle for a little bit,
Presents this year were pretty unexciting since we are trying to make it through the next 7 months without any student loans. Did I mention just 7 more months until we are done with school? He got two shirts from my parents, which was more of a need than a want, but he likes them so I guess that's good. From me he got this licorice that he likes, rainbow chip frosting, a caramelo, and IBC root beer. Then this morning I made cake batter pancakes (from pinterest of course) and served them to him in bed. I may have enjoyed them more than Quentin, they were delicious! I'm going to take a stab at making a home made cake, so we'll eat that Sunday. Three days of celebrating sounds pretty good huh? Stay tuned for our pumpkin carving post.

|Here's Brady sporting his Mizzou gear and fighting Butters off his snacks.|
When I needed some extra time after he ate to finish making breakfast burritos to keep handy in the freezer (which I very much recommend), I kept Brady busy playing with bubbles. My mom used to do this with us too.
One more story and I'll tie it up. The other day when I went to lunch, I checked my phone and had a text from Lori that said something like, "Kylie was sitting on the floor building a tower with the blocks. I couldn't figure out why Brady was standing so still and quiet behind her. After a few minutes, he grabbed a few strands of her hair, yanked them out, shoved them in his mouth and ran. Without looking up Kylie yelled 'Bradyyyy...I hate it when you pull out my hair and eat it!'" Obviously this is a recurring event if she knew what was happening without looking up. For some reason, my kid loves to eat hair. I don't know why. It's disgusting and I always make him stop and spit it out when I catch him. I just didn't know this obsession went to the extent of ripping hair off people's heads. I'm hoping it's something he outgrows...fairly quickly too!
