Halloween With Wind And Rain

It was a doozy of a Halloween. It wasn’t just a dreary day, but a stormy, day with lots of rain. The rain let up enough in the early evening that we took Kaitlyn and Ben up to the Common for some trick or treating (but that was only for children under the age of 10). My photographer friend has a studio on the Common and was “treating” with photos of kids in costumes. Her shots were adorable. Then we ran the two littlest kids to the Community Center for some indoor trick or treating.

I got Ben and Kaitlyn into their pajamas and snuggled in with a movie. They were so happy to answer the door and hand out candy while Wade took the big boys out trick or treating door to door. It was a win-win for most of us (maybe not for Wade). When the big boys got home, they did some candy trading with Kaitlyn and then it was off to bed to warm up.

“With The Right Words, You Can Change The World”

Teague informed me he had to dress up like a character from Charlotte’s Web today. I think we did a pretty good job – taking into consideration what my child was willing to wear.

Backyard Fun

Throw a couple of kids in the backyard with a dog and they have fun for hours. The key is adding a new kid. If they are all siblings then it sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t. We had a friend stop by to drop something off and her daughter ended up staying to play for quite a while. The kids were just having a blast playing outside with Pepper. Sometimes it’s so easy.

Carving Party Hangover

We are all struggling to get back in the groove after our fun party last night – except for Ben. He’s ready for another party.

Pumpkin Carving

It’s that time of year again! Today was the 14th annual Burch Pumpkin Carving Party! We had so many friends gather and had a wonderful time socializing, talking, eating, and carving pumpkins. Only one small child got lost and my neighbor was kind enough to bring Ben home – oops (Wade and I are such wonderful parents)!

Choo Choo

Having a somewhat empty room (for the moment) has worked out perfectly for Ben and his trains. I love having them out of the way and he loves getting to spread them out.

Baby Love

His love of babies is well documented but I really can’t let a picture go unposted.
