October!

I am almost posting on the correct month again, yippee! We have been crazy busy lately. I'd like to say things would be slowing down soon, but with a baby boy arriving on Nov. 19th (if not sooner) followed by the Holidays it will probably be an exciting busy Winter! :D

Ok! Back to October.

Our children wore fangs most of the month. Parker even wore them to his dentist appointment to trick the dentist. The dentist thought it was pretty funny and played along. "My, your teeth have changed! Are you sure you have been brushing every day?" Parker loved it.






































Parker is currently tracked-out of school and is loving it. He likes to put other things like toys and legos in his back pack now that it isn't full of school papers.


We invited the neighborhood children over to watch some Scooby-Doo on the garage and eat some popcorn. It was a fun time and the weather has been awesome!















We had a family party with the cousins for Meadow's birthday. She is all about rainbows and ponies and sparkles and unicorns...and dragons these days and had fun picking out her own decorations. We love having the cousins near by AND Derek's family is moving to Virginia from Montana so that will be so fun having them closer!




Here we have the Allergy friendly home-made cake and the regular cake for everyone else...


Happy Birthday to our Sweet, fun, 4 year old Meadow! One fun thing lately is that she is getting good at writing many of her letters and she leaves little "notes" around for us. :D






















Parker's school had a trunk or treat this year and it was a lot of fun. We decorated the back of the car a little bit and Greg dressed up like a gorilla to pass out candy. He was a big hit with the kids. The children voted on their favorite car and we (the gorilla) came in second place! :) We won some mums and a gift card to Subway. Parker, Meadow and I went around to a few cars for candy but mostly they wanted to hang out with cool gorilla Dad. :) Parker: "I just want everyone to know that this is my Dad."

























































We played in the leaves.















We tap danced, went to karate, and had a yard sale with a lemonade stand to make room for baby. We can now fit the van back into the garage - hallelujah.









































It's the great pumpkin Charlie Brown. 35 Weeks!































































Happy Halloween Everybody!!

The fangs thing cracked me up! Your kids are too cute! I think we should all wear fangs the next time we visit the dentist. :)
