the past week

Corgan received his Arrow of Light.

We got our first snow.

Oneil didn't want to wake-up from his nap.

Carly only cries when she doesn't get food fast enough.
Just like her mom.

her hair after naps


First time eating cheerios for breakfast.

Playing a little 'Guess Who'.

Last time mowing the lawn this season.

Picking up the apples before it snows.

Spelling his words.

and this was halloween

The last time we went to the downtown trick-or-treating thing, Cade was 2 1/2.  But a friend texted earlier in the day and asked if we wanted to go, and at first I was like, no. But then I realized the kids wouldn't care if they weren't feeling 100% ((some of them had been feeling yucky for a couple days)). So we went. And all was well.

And then after a quick dinner and potty break, we hit the houses up for their candy. 

Do you know how nice it is to not care what your kids dress-up as on Halloween? Corgan came up with his all on his own. He was either going to be Indiana Jones or Joseph Smith. Both equally cool. He ended up going as Indy 'cause we didn't have the right necktie, scarf thing. Lily was a witch. Again. Love that girl and her simplicity and sticking with what she loves. Blake and Cade, the mighty duo, were both the skeletons. We just happened to have both costumes that were each a wee bit too big for both, but they didn't care. Neither did I! And then there's Oneil. He was the Care Bear last year. But that's all he said he wanted to be after seeing the costume a month ago. For real...look at how happy he is. And Carly is wearing the exact same thing that Corgan wore his first Halloween. Easy-peasy. Not caring is so nice sometimes.

And then on Sunday, Carly thoroughly enjoyed some cookies.
