Happy Halloween

Well we had a great halloween with tons of trick or treaters, lots of candy and even puke! Poor little brayden woke up Saturday from his nap and puked twice. He felt and looked better so we decided to take him out for fun and candy. (Unfortunately he stayed home from church today because he was puking again. We have a neighborhood trunk or treat at the park so we decided to participate. I was told to plan for 100 to 150 kids so that's just what I did. We filled 129 candy bags. (all bags donated by my mother in law) and then I had a bunch of individual candies to hand out as well. Well after 7 minutes I was out of bags within the next 5-7 minutes I was totally out of candy and there were still kids coming. Crazy. I could not believe how many kids were there. I know now that 10 pounds of candy to hand out is not enough for this neighborhood. McCall was loving the candy and kept trying to eat it with the wrapper on since we didn't unwrap it for her to eat. Here she is indulging herself and showing off her candy!
We also went to our school carnival for a little while. The class that had the most pretickets sales got to silly string the Principal. The poor guy doesn't even like Halloween but was a good sport about getting attacked.
And here is our lovely carved pumpkin and cute minnie mouse, clifford the big red dog, "Luigi" the clown and some of their friends!!

A little of this and That and a whole lot of pictures

So ya long time since the last post. But we've been doing some fun stuff. We celebrated Mo's 30th Bday the other day and were able to enjoy his Dad, Kay, and Grandma Betty for the special occasion. We are so glad to have mo in the family and grateful for all his hard work. Ok so I just put Mo and his Dad to work on the basement while they were here. But it's almost finished! We got carpet put in and just have little things to finish. The kids love the room. We have put all the toys in there so it's just one big playroom. I have to admit this new carpet makes me want to replace the carpet in the rest of the house, it's so much softer! Anyways while company was in town we went out to the pumpkin patch to find the perfect pumpkin. And through all the tears, kicking, and smiles we were able to find one! We have yet to carve it...hopefully tomorrow night! We went to Tanner's last soccer game and he did playing around with friends! He really enjoyed soccer but I think he mostly just liked being silly on the field! Tanner also brought home his 1st school picture and I loved how it turned out except that he didn't take his jacket off. But I think it's still cute. We got free Coldstone Icecream, free face painting, had a baby shower for a friend, I got to help out in Tanner's classroom, we harvested carrots, zucchini (the size of mccalls leg), spinach, green onions. McCall has also decided that she would rather walk than crawl! It is quite funny to watch her because I think she walks like an old grandma! She is a girly girl and turns most things into bracelets or a necklace! We also got some family pictures that I think turned out pretty good! We have enjoyed our summer and now are awaiting the dreaded freezing cold winter.
