My Friday Five

{Linking up once again with Darci from The Good Life Blog and sharing five random things currently on my mind.
In no particular order, but all equally awesome.}

ONE: I mentioned in Nora's three-month stats that one of my favorite things about having a girl is the head-wear. {I'll allow four seconds to let everyone who heard me say "NO BOWS" roll their eyes. We good? Okay.} However, now that there's a chill in the air, I am 100% all about the leg-wear. I am talking Baby Legs, y'all! Sure, Owen wore a pair here and there, but I longed for the day I could go all out with a girl. And here we are. Also, feast your eyes on baby's first jeans.

TWO: Nathan has been rocking those first-grade skills. Math tests, reading groups, spelling homework - and he does a great job of staying on top of it all. However, the writing assignments that have been rolling in lately are incredible. They're creative and funny, and he's good at pouring that active imagination onto paper. Also the opening line pictured above stopped me in my tracks. Adorable.

THREE: Speaking of Nathan, I think he's discovered the best way for a six-year-old to make money. He doesn't know he can get paid for chores {shhh!} and he's a bit too young to man the fry station, so he's settled on the next best thing. The Tooth Fairy. He even woke us up at 5:30 recently, tooth in hand. He's up to four missing, including the big ole front ones. Christmas pictures will be a delight.

FOUR: After a disgusting September electricity bill, I am pleased to report that my windows are wide open. As I type, I can hear the squeals of my boys chasing each other and feel the breeze from the comfort of my living room. This might be my favorite weather. The mid-point between fall and summer is a winner in my book. Not yet bundling season, but past stuck-inside-for-fear-of-heat-stroke season. I'll call it playing-in-the-yard-without-sweating season. Lovely, right?

FIVE: Darth Vader doesn't look too intimidating in his jammies. The Halloween costumes for the two smallest Bauers were delivered today and I almost couldn't handle it. I could barely make it past the Leia buns, but when Owen donned this mask and informed me that he was my father, I lost it. Everyone who gets a trick-or-treat knock from this trio will not regret opening the door for "those dang kids." A photo shoot/battle scene will probably take place. And probably be posted here.

Hope y'all are having a fabulous Friday! Be sure to click the button below to see what other bloggers have been up to this week and leave your own Friday Five to share with the world. I'd love to know what you're up to. Now, Nora and I are off to enjoy that lovely weather. Have an awesome weekend, y'all.
