Lots of fun on Halloween

I told Colette I wasn't going to change my background until I got my Halloween post up. So, I thought I'd better do it now so I don't get too far behind. We started the week off with the big parade at Grandma Tess's. It was a crazy madhouse. But, the kids had fun and got a great start to their Halloween stash of candy.

Can't leave out the funny faces!
The next night was cookie decorating and pumpkin painting/decorating at Grandma & Grandpa Marchants.

I think Sean & I have lost our creative pumpkin decorating skills.

And finally, the long awaited Halloween finally came. The kids looked super cute in their new costumes. I think Collin's costume was the biggest hit - especially from the back! Each year our neighborhood has a little parade that goes around our block. I finally talked the kids into participating this year. It was such nice weather and an easy way to gets lots of candy!

Did I mention funny faces?

All in all it was a great Halloween. Now, on to the next holiday!

Fall Fun

I can't believe how fast time goes. It seems like not very long ago, we couldn't wait for winter to pass and spring to come. And now, it's already fall.

The kids love to jump in the leaves. They like to watch the wind blow them down and all around the yard. Luckily, Sean takes care of the outside, and he gets to rake them and rake them and rake them...

Aaron and Collin love to make silly faces in pictures. Alyssa is trying to copy them. So cute!

This year, Aaron played his first season of soccer. I think by the end of the season, he at least sort-of understood the game. At least most of the time, he was running in the right direction. It was fun and funny to watch him play. He had lots of fun too, but I think he enjoyed the treats at the end of each game the most!
