I didn't realize it had been a month since I posted last. Oops.
Tonight we hung up ornaments and the kids loved it. I couldn't decide what pictures to post, so I put them all up.
This is James' "irresistible" smile. Or so he thinks. I don't have the heart to tell him it's more of a teeth bearing grimace. Hmmm... maybe it's working.
Here it is again. Look at that cute picture crasher back there.
Can you tell we had spaghetti and meatballs for dinner? Apparently I don't wipe my kids' faces off or put on bibs.
This is the face Jacob makes when you tell him to say, "cheese."
I love this season! I can't wait for the next 25 days. Except I'm always sad when Christmas arrives because that means it's all over. So I better enjoy it while it lasts!


We had such a busy Halloween weekend! James' preschool had a Halloween/costume party. James wanted to be a mummy and wanted his face painted. At first, he loved it.
See those goats behind Jacob? He couldn't stay away from them. Even when they were butting heads and fighting, he was trying to play with them. We're lucky he didn't leave the party brain damaged.
The preschoolers made a pinata and it was James' favorite part of the party.
Matthew's class also had a party, that was luckily right after James'. Parents and siblings were also invited.
Jacob found this rocking chair and thought he was in heaven. Or king of the class. He could have sat in the chair the whole party and been happy.
Friday night our ward had a trunk-or-treat, but I don't have any pictures from that night. Tim was a hot pocket. James was still a mummy but did NOT want his face painted.
Saturday night we went to Greenway's trunk-or-treat. James was dressed up as a mummy in the beginning but changed his mind just before the trick-or-treating started.
Getting a picture of these three boys lately is ridiculously hard. Especially since Jacob has started walking. Quite independent and too much to do.
We decided to let the boys go out Sunday. They loved it and we met lots of new people in our neighborhood. Oh, and James decided to be Spiderman, sans mask.
I love the story the next four pictures tell.
I only wish I had one of the tackle. Nobody was hurt.
Matthew showing me his awesome ninja moves. Mr. Miyagi would be so proud.
