I am so thankful that our church has a party for kids to play and be safe.  It also gives the grown ups time to talk with each other.  I love Halloween, but it is all about the kids and the food in this house!  This is a nice stress free night of fellowship, chili, games and lots of candy.  
Love It! 
 What do I love the most?  Letting my kids run around without adult supervision. What mommy doesn't appreciate a little time like that?
How can you resist a little froggy handing out candy?  I know I can't.  I know there wasn't a grown up or kid alike that didn't comment on this extreme cuteness!  Thank you Tia for this cute little costume, and for thinking way ahead when I was only thinking about the new baby that was keeping me up at night.
Then there is this strange pink leopard that was following me around all night.  Hmmm... She is so cute we decided to keep her.  
Okay, agreeing on a costume for this little chica is not easy task.  It was so much easier when they are younger and wear pretty much whatever you choose for them.  (in my house the only person I can dress without an opinion is Baby B) We had to get two, yes TWO, costumes for this opinionated 7 year old!  One for trunk or treat and one for Halloween.  Spoiled?  Maybe.  Did I get the costume I wanted her to wear?  Absolutely!  You will have to wait and see what we chose after Saturday.  
Wolverine wouldn't stop eating candy long enough for me to take a decent picture of him.  I pretty much let him get away with it though, because I feel bad for his little gimpy leg.  He didn't get to have as much fun as the other kids.  Daddy had to carry him around to all the cars.  B.O.R.I.N.G.
I guess I never said anything about Mister P's leg before.  I guess that will have to be in another post!  Just know his splint matches his costume.  Very Important!

A Perfect Fall Day...


A week, or so, ago I took the kids for a walk on a trail in our neighborhood.  It was a beautiful day!  They found a pile of leaves that just had to be played in.  I think Preston had more fun throwing them at his sister.

When I was younger my mom had an unusual obsession with dead trees.  Every vacation we went on she would take picture after picture of them.  I really never understood this, until I grew up.  I just love dead trees!

Two Month Boy...

Okay, okay, I know I am so behind.  I am trying to catch up, kind of.  
On October 5th Blake was two months old.  He was weighed in at 10 pounds 14 ounces.  WOW!  That boy knows how to pack on the pounds.  Four pounds in two months.  

This precious little boy has brought so much joy to our home!

10 years...

A few weeks ago I went to my 10 year High School reunion.  I was a crazy woman - I packed up my three kids (and practically my whole house) and  drove 14 hours to Broken Arrow.  To do what you ask?  To go to a football game.  Hmm...Would I do it again?  Probably not.  BUT, I did get to see some of my friends.  I didn't get many pictures, but here is one that I will treasure forever. 

This is Sarah.  She was my best friend in back in the day.  Being able to see her again after 11 years was a treasure.  One that I will not ever forget.  I promise that it will not be 10 years before we see each other again.  And for a little treat (more like a laugh)...

...this was us then, 11 years ago!

Thank you Jennie, Katie, Emily and Sarah for a great evening.  It was so great to see you all!  

My Three...
