Alex and her ventures

One fun thing about kindergarten is the scarecrow parade and field trips. Alex makes a beautiful scarecrow. She had fun and Sam said the parade was awesome. Sometimes they actually get along great and enjoy each other. I was very excited to be able to take the day off and spend it with Alex at Dewberry farms with her class. We had a great day just the 2 of us (and several other kids and teachers). It was a perfect day with Alex. She is so fun and friendly. It was fun to see how she interacts with the other kids and adults that were there. She loves socializing and the kids love her.
Last week she came home from school and I asked her how her day was and she said " a little bad but mostly good". I asked her what was a little bad and she said, "all the kids wanted to play with no one. They all wanted to play with ME!!!". I could only just laugh to myself. What a difficult day. If all our problems could be that simple. Leave it up to Alex to have this problem.

I love this kid. Craziness and all.

Pumpkin carving with friends

Some of our great friends our moving and we are very sad to see them go. They moved out of their house and in a hotel right now and we have the great privilege of having Olivia stay with us this week. This past Sunday (Halloween) Harolds and Torbits came over for dinner and we were able to carve pumpkins with friends. Another friend found a great pumpkin kit similar to Mr. Potato head for Michael. We all had a great time with friends and pumpkins. Michael''s made up pumpkin by Morgan's awesome pumpkin.
The whole gang. We are sure going to miss the Harolds.

Chris's Dream Halloween!!!

Now that we are in a new house, we have taken advantage of decorating (we, or I, started decorating for Halloween since the beginning of September). We have come up with many new decorations (including skulls, bones etc) which the kids are loving. I will post photos when I finish everything. Yes, I am still continuing to finish decorations even though Halloween is over. I will put it away this weekend.
As almost every other Halloween, we decided to go dressed as a family. Thanks to some friends who have the same obsession as Chris and children the same sizes as ours, we were able to borrow Chris's dream costumes, STAR WARS!!! Chris makes a great Yoda. The only way it would have been better is if Chris was Darth Vader and Michael Luke was Luke Skywalker so that Chris could say "Luke, I am your father".
