- ABC song with the last line being "Next time I think I will pee."
- The Pee in the Potty goes Swish Swish Swish - Sung to the Wheels on the Bus
- Tinkle Tinkle little 'Bastian
Yep, we've lost our minds this time! Our other dilema is that Sebastian is a tiny one. He is 22 months old and is just now wearing size 18 months. Those 18 months hang on his little waist. Lucky dog! The big boy undie people begin their garments at size 2T. We're quite a ways from that size. So, if you happen to find some itty bitty teeny weeny whitey tidies, send them our way!

We visited Bryan's grandparents after Trick or Treating. I thought this was such a sweet picture of Great Grandma Adkins with two of the great-grandkids.
Yep. This is a huge pumkin. It's called the Great Pumpkin, in fact. Bryan's bosses, the Hubers, had this giant pumpkin custom made by a hot air balloon company. They loan it to the governor's mansion every year for the downtown halloween event. Then, on Halloween night, the Great Pumpkin inflates and glows in their front yard. They have a speaker inside and everything so they can greet the children by name. It's a hoot every year to visit.

Group Game: Mummy Race – Dulce
For this game you divide the class up in to teams. Then you choose one child from every team to be the mummy. Each team has to wrap up their mummy in a set amount of time, making sure to leave the nose and eye area open. After each team has finished wrapping their mummy then the mummy has to hop (with out braking any of the wrapping) down to the finish line. Then winning team gets a prize. Make sure to have plenty of paper and to play some devilish music like monster mash while the game is being played.

Sebastian will be dressed up as a soccer player. I know, it's a stretch. The boy sleeps with two soccer balls every night and wakes up to dribble a ball out of his room and through the house every morning. I wore a necklace yesterday that had a silver circle and he kept chanting "ball, ball, ball." This boy loves soccer so it's a safe bet that he'll love his costume.
So, stay posted because I'll have pics of them in their costumes this weekend from our Fall Fun for Families at our church. Also, I am room mom for Jackson's Kindgergarten class. HOORAY!!! I am getting things ready for their Halloween party. I'll keep you posted.

Abby is an Early Childhood Education major. She comes from a large family of brothers and sisters and her father serves as a multi-lingual church planter in Fayetteville, Arkansas. She lived in Guatemala for 8 years while her parents worked in the mission field and is she is very fluent in Spanish. She has a very sweet and beautiful spirit about her and our family loves her already. She and Cito met at Williams Baptist College, which happens to be where Mom & Dad Vargas met 41 years ago. I think the Lord definitely placed them together at just the right time.
No word yet on the date of the wedding.

I've posted a lot about the busy life of Jackson lately. The quiet side of the dynamic duo is our Sebastian. He's silent but powerful! During Jackson's soccer game on Saturday, Sebas was practicing his first love...Soccer. He's got a mean left foot that can really score some goals someday!
You never know what he's in to. Today I came out of the computer room to find him doing this...
Reading one of my books and chowing down on an apple. Such a grown up boy in a teeny tiny frame!

Along the walk he talked with Cito on the phone. He kept saying how he has to see Jackson's new school shoes. He also said that Cito has to hurry with school or he's going to miss it. Last night he talked about how in 13 years he'll be finished and can be Felipe's roomate in college. (For those who don't know, Felipe's my 19-year-old nephew!)
And now...for some pictures:
Here he is in the hallway outside his room. They were all lined up ready to get inside! Luckily, he already knows 3 or 4 children in his class through church, Y Soccer and YMCA Summer camp. He's off to a great start.

Our staycation was very nice. I wish every week was like this one. Spending time with the boys is awesome and I love every bit of it. Last night Jackson let me rock and sing him to sleep. I haven't been able to do that in years and I don't think he realized how much that meant to me. I was able to tell him different times in his first year that I sang different songs to him. From singing Great is Thy Faithfulness after immunizations, to Sweet Baby James and St. Jude's Comet when he was 6 weeks old to Lida Rose every day of his first year, I was able to relive those songs again. It was great because after I finished one he would ask me for another. Finally he didn't ask anymore and I realized it was because he was asleep. Sweet Jackson fell asleep to my singing instead of Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber, thank God for the little things!

We're going to the pool in a little while but not before I push myself into line to be one of the first 100 customers after 3p.m. who gets a free T-shirt at Chipotle. It doesn't take much to excite me!!
Be blessed & peaceful,
