Happy Halloween!

This year Halloween was celebrated on Saturday the 30th. So, we...... went to my Great-Nephew's First Birthday Party.

Got in-and-out of costumes a couple of times.

And only sent one kid out in the rain with his dad to Trick-or-Treat.

And, I WILL be answering the door for trick-or-treaters tonight if they come!!

Star Wars: Episode K. Luke Goes to Kindergarten

Today our little Jedi headed off to school. BIG GIANT FUN!! A party in class, lots of treats, candy, coloring, and games to play. And then, MOMMY'S FAVORITE: The Halloween Parade.
And, yes. I cried. I don't know why. I'm just a mushy Mom I guess. Oh the sweet little mini kids! Oh my boy! Marching in a parade. Almost too much to take!! Grandma and Grandpa Wise came with. Does Harper look like the happiest girl in the world or what?
This is the best picture I got of Cannon in the parade. Perhaps there's good reason for Greg to always say, "Uh, honey, just let me take the pictures." Although, I did get some good video.
I snapped this pic because WOW. What a great Jack Skellington! I think the head was made of plaster or something. Cool huh?

Pumpkin Patch Poop-Out

Well, it's that time of year! My favorite! Pumpkin patch pictures of the kids! Greg took them on Saturday. They found a cool patch with a cool truck. (and mushy pumpkins, icky!)

Oh the perfect setting, right? WRONG. I guess Cannon and Harper are just at that age. (and Harper's jacket is still on :( )

So, let's seeee..... we'll throw some hay... and speckle brother's shirt with it....

Then we'll look confused.

Then, how about we cover the pumpkins with hay? HEY! Let's do that!!!

ONE decent picture out of the whole bunch. DANG KIDS!!! At least it kinda looks like they had fun though! ;)

For A Good Baseball Game...

You've gotta have a Daddy who can pitch it to you just right,

and you've gotta keep your eye on the ball.

You've gotta have a big wad of gum in your mouth,

And a HUGE cheering section! We had LOTS of family there last night! (thanks everyone who came!)

Going Batty!

On Friday, we took advantage of a little bit of sunshine and did some crafts outside! Thank goodness for the sun, because this involved glitter!

I cut some bats out of black cardstock, punched a hole in the head, and let the kids go at it!

I had many mediums of glue, spray, brush on, squeeze, etc. How exciting. And LOTS of glitter. Heaven! We had planned ahead to have the boys from next door over to do this with us, and while we were out there some other kids came up the street and joined in. (one girl is in Cannon's class) I just loved that. Kids trickling in from everywhere and doing their best job on their fancy bats! It was just lovely. (I'm glad I had lots cut out!)

Then we hung ours all on the porch. They look so cool when the wind blows!

Now, I just have to get Harper to understand what a bat is. Doesn't she look confused?? Ha! Hope you all had a great weekend!

Mom's Birthday

OH, I am behind!! On Sept. 25th, we had a birthday party for my mom. She turned 70!!!! ANd she does not like to admit that. Too bad, I'm telling! ( She doesn't know how to get on the internet anyway!)

So we pissed her off by having a party for her. Well, not really, but you know Kathy, she does NOT like any fuss to be made over her! But WE all loved it!

We kept it small, a dinner at my sister Stacy's house, so that made my mom happy. All she ever wants is to have her kids and grandkids around.

See the proof? My son, my nephew Ryan, and Ryan's son Hunter all huddled with WaWa helping her open presents.

And my mom got a letter from my nephew Johnny! WITH pictures!! ( a hot commodity, he's on a mission)

What a happy day for us all to be together Happy Birthday to our sweet mom. We would be very lost without her! And look, another birthday treat! Ryan and Lacie! Hugging! Smiling! Long enough for a photo to be taken!!

Moving On....

Well, I can't find the winner, Mary! I haven't heard from her. So, I guess this is what I'll do: Draw a new winner from the original 16 entries if I haven't heard from Mary on Wednesday evening. Yipes! This is the fairest way I could think of to handle this. I hope if there's a new winner I can find them! thanks!
