Where the Wild Things Are

The night Max wore his wolf suit

and made mischief of one kind and another his mother called him "WILD THING!" and Max said "I'LL EAT YOU UP!" so he was sent to bed without eating anything.

That very night in Max's room a forest grew and grew and grew until his ceiling hung with vines and the walls became the world all around.

And an ocean tumbled by with a private boat for Max and he sailed off through night and day and in and out of weeks and almost over a year to where the wild things are.

And when he came to the place where the wild things are they roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws.

Till Max said "Be still" and tamed them with the magic trick of staring into all their yellow eyes without blinking once. And they were frightened and called him the most wild thing of all and made him king of all wild things.

"And now", cried Max "let the wild rumpus start!"

Photobucket

Photobucket

"Now, stop!" Max said. And sent the wild things off to bed without their supper. And Max the king of all wild things was lonely and wanted to be where someone loved him best of all.

Then all around from far away across the world he smelled good things to eat. So he gave up being king of where the wild things are.

But the wild things cried "Oh please don't go, we'll eat you up we love you so" and Max said "No."

The wild things roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws.

But Max stepped into his private boat and waved goodbye. And sailed back over a year and in and out of weeks and through a day and into the night of his very own room where he found his supper waiting for him.

And it was still hot.

Fall in Colorado

I adore Fall here in Colorado. The colors, the leaves, the bundling up in hats and jackets, the snow... Oh! What? You don't have snow in the Fall? Because, we do!

Here are the Lincolns enjoying some Colorado Fall weather.

Yes, that was my kids making out in the leaves. They like Fall, too.

A few days later, SNOW! Oh, how my big boy loves snow.

Ben likes it okay, but he's basically swallowed by clothing and not allowed out of the stroller because we're mean like that.

Happy Fall! With Halloween a few days away and November close behind you know I'm caroling and baking and basking in holiday cheer. Snow optional, but appreciated.

Pumpkin Patching It

I tried to take the kids to the pumpkin patch by myself the other day. It resulted in Max having a freak out over some seeds on the ground (this is quite a fear he has) which led to my carrying both children and Max peeing all over us. He's fully potty trained, but he was so scared he lost bladder control.

It was not fun.

So, I thought we'd try the patch again with Ritchie this time to help in the hopes that I could get some cute pictures of the kids, patching it up.

Max was very brave. We even got him to actually walk in the patch. Without peeing in his pants.

Ben had a great time, too! He loved crawling around, sampling all the Ben-sized pumpkins.

I tried really hard to get a good picture of both boys. They weren't cooperating.

Ritchie and I each took a turn, too.

We had such a lovely time. Up next is carving and painting! I love the holidays!
