This picture says it all!!! HAHA! We had a wonderful weekend.Friday night Trent had his last regular season game. The coach wasn't there so Brett had to pitch. He did really good because we only had to use the tee a couple of times. We won 14-13. Yeah!!! My dad was our catcher because we was short one player. Not knowing he was my dad the team mom said "Poor Grandpa, he needs to get the game ball tonight!" He worked and worked to get all the balls that were thrown at him. On Saturday we met Brett's family at the pumpkin patch with the kids. They had a blast. 5 little boys and poor little Alyssa. (Not that she can't hold her own) It was my nephew, Dylan's 2nd Birthday. All of cousins had fun. Eventhough I go to the same pumpkin patch every year it doesn't get boring. We all had a blast. Man, what happended to fall? Winter is already here. I'm glad I took the time to change my closet around.

So these are the Ola MUDCATS. Don't you just love pictures like these. (Trent is standing right infront of Brett. Brett is the one without a hat) We'll only one more game to go. The team had their party on Tuesday night and Coach Chris handed out the trophies to all the players and the coaches. We ended up having our little party at Burger King, which was great because the kids could play outside on the playground.
Trent received another game ball that night for hitting the best . There's a picture. Also when it was Trent's turn to receive his trophy the coach said, "This trophy goes to the player who is our hardest and best hitter, Trent Barfield" The look on Trent's face is priceless. He was so excitied. He kept asking me, "Did I do good Momma? Did I do good?"
Sign up fee $50.00
The look on your sons face after receiving his trophy~~ priceless.

Our baby. She's gone. Have you seen her? All we have now is a little girl. Since she has been sleeping in her "big girl" toddler bed for a couple of weeks with no problem I finally took her crib and changing table down. It's sad. I have no baby anymore. I don't even have to carry a diaper bag . I just use her Dora the Explora purse. I can't believe that in exactly a month she will be 2. Wow. Time does fly when they are infants. Thankfully I can still hold on to the fact that she still wears 24 months because when she gets into a 2T she's an offical toddler. Man! That's hard to grasp. Since she is approaching Toddler status we are trying "Time Out". It never worked with Trent but since every child is different we thought we'd give it a try. She has watched different children's video's on the subject and they have tried it with her at school. So I guess time will tell. I never believed in it before. Like Jeff Foxworthy has said " Yeah! My used Time Out. He took time out of his day to whip our A**" Because of her "OI" we have opted to get a toddler bed instead of a twin size one. Trent started out in a twin bed. I used to think that toddler beds were a waste of money, but we are afraid that she might fall off a twin bed and break something. A toddler bed is so much closer to the floor and I wouldnt have to worry as much.

Ok! So Trent lost another tooth. That's two within two weeks. He is mortified because we can't find it. I think that he swallowed it. I guess we will find out in a couple of days>>>>>See other things Trent's swallowed>>>>>>
A Penny ~ Cool x-ray of it stuck in his throat.!!
We looked everywhere. I originally told him that there would probably be a delay in the "tooth fairy" visit because
we couldn't find the tooth. ( She didnt have change for a $20) But I couldn't let that happen. Quick thinking on my part. I took the money out of his bank that I had given him last week and the tooth fairy slipped it under his pillow Again. (Don't worry she will replace what she took) On another note:
Brett's first day on the day shift was "different". We acutally ate dinner at a normal decent time and together, which doesn't happen during the week that often. But we are going to have to overcome some challenges. (1) being the fact that he has to get up so darn early. 4:15 am . Man that stinks. We are going to have to put the alarm on his side of the bed so I don't have to get up to turn it off. And since Alyssa still wakes up in themiddle of the night (around 3 am) he is getting a little taste of my life that has been the last 6 years. Also Brett didn't make it home before the bus came. He was only 5 minutes behind her but she wouldn't let Trent off the bus without no one being home. So we are going to have to come up with something. Hopefully, Brett can tweek his schedule by 20 or 30 minutes to elimiate this problem. And since baseball is on the next couple of weeks I didn't have to worry about the TV rules last night. There wasn't anything on to watch anyways.

Isn't she cute?
This week has been really uneventful. Trent had a really good game on Monday night. He had two doubles and three good plays at third. He even got the ball at third and threw it at first for an out. AWESOME. We won the game eventhough the YELLOW JACKET cheaters had 7 year olds on the team. YEAH! We only have 3 games left. BooHoo. ~~~ Ok! So now that Brett will be on day shift starting on Monday, I will be available for my girlfriends monthly game night. So be aware! I am going to start practicing my Texas Holdem'. I've been watching Bravo so I am ready.

For those of you with Toddlers:
My teeth are here..... Hip Hip Hooray!
I wonder who I can bite today?!
I've got to try them out, you see,
I must find out if they'll work for me!!
My teachers say, "Now You Must Not Bite,"
"It hurts your friends and fills them with fright!"
So I'm trying to keep my teeth to myself,
And be nice, to my friends like a good little elf.
But please be patient as I go through this phase,
It is necessary to my development in varying ways
And I will continue to do my best
To use "My Words" when my emotions they test.
Alyssa received this little poem from school. Do they have one for pinching?

I love Baseball, but................
I hate that I have to wait three weeks for a new episode of Prisonbreak. It is just getting good. You know a show is awesome when you are constantly screaming at the television during the whole hour. At one point I thought I had awoken the kiddies.
All of the Fox shows are making room for the Baseball playoffs. ~ So just be prepared!!
Trent's allergies have been really acting up this week. Poor thing. So bad his eyes were swollen. He looked like Rocky after a fight. He cried not to go to school. "Momma, I don't want the kids to see me this way." I took him to class and explained his condition to his teacher. He was fine when he got home. (I actually think he like the extra attention) He was all ready to go today and the swelling was down. I guess he knows that he can't play in the leaves anymore.
Tonight another baseball game. Speaking of that I'd like to call out the cheater Dodger team from last Friday. Using 7 year olds instead of 5-6 year olds. You should be ashamed!
