Hunter's costume this year was so much fun to make!  Which is a really good thing considering I made it last night so that he would have something he liked to wear to the school halloween parade today!  The first 3 pictures are after the school and then church parties, and so we forgot to put on his chest piece, but you see it later on in the pictures we took before school.  He didn't have his face painted for school though.  As the bus pulled away from the house this morning he put down his window and called back to me: "Best Costume EVER!!"  That makes it all worth it!

Holiday Decor and Projects

Here's our Halloween Family!

 We seriously have the best landlords EVER!!!!   She came up the other day with these buckets of Halloween treats for all the kids.  She explained that they're the grandchildren she doesn't have!  And that they make it all worth it.  We love her!

 Here's Nathan's science project for school.  He chose to do a volcano!  It turned out so amazing!

 The vase of flowers we made for each of the boys to take to their teachers.  We made the vase out of pencils glued on to an empty tin can.  Tied with a ribbon!

Beyblades are the toy in demand at our house these days.  For Hunter's birthday Ben took him out and he got to pick out a toy at the store.  Beyblades it was!  Little tops that have 4 pieces each and you can mix and match them and have them compete against each other in a stadium.   Just to see whose lasts spinning longest!  So much fun!  Ben and the boys have tournaments all the time!  These pictures are of the first night.  I left to go to the Football game and watch Nate and left them playing beyblades at home.... when we arrived home 2 hrs later... yup!  Ben and Hunter were still at it!  you can see from the score sheet that Hunter was doing super well......  Ben -- needed some practice!

Pep Band!

Nate went to the High School last Friday and got to be paired up with one of the High School students.  They rehearsed with the band, and performed with the Pep band for the football game, and marched with the marching band.  It was awesome!   I hadn't been to a HS football game since I was in HS.


Nearly 30 years ago my "Big Opa" brought back this dress from Germany for me!  I love that it now fits Felicity!  She is so beautiful!

New Table

My amazing in-laws gave us an early Christmas present!  Hooray!!  A gorgeous table big enough to fit all of us ... plus a few more!  There are actually 8 chairs with it, but we're opting to keep the 2 booster seats on the old bench so as not to ruin these ones any quicker than is necessary!  Come visit!
