A Week Fit for a Kid

What a great time of year. Oh, to be a kid!! Last week was Farm Week at school and so (like last year), the girls boycotted the cowboy/farmer attire and went for kitty cats. Meow.

And then there's Halloween...the girls really "got it" this year as we hit every inch of the neighborhood. Here in Rome, the Halloween date was officially changed to Saturday night, and it seemed that everyone was ready for it. Jack was a champ and did his usual: sat back and watched all of the action!

Sometimes I think that the girls have gotten so big; but tonight, as my little ladybug and bumblebee made their way up the big steps to each door, as masked ghouls and witches ran past them, I realized how little they still are and thanked God for that. And now Chad and I are kicking back for a little candy feast.

The end of the night...

...and a late-night snack!

(Tomorrow, that is!!)

Warner Jam Session

Move over Jonas Brothers. We've got a beat that can't be beat.

Fast Track through Fall

There is little that I like about Chad being gone during basketball season. The only thing, actually, is the fact that I can keep up with this and others' blogs. I don't ever have a chance to sit down at the computer during the day, and when Chad is at home at night, well...he is much cozier than a laptop. So until the season is in full-swing, I will have to sneak in time here and there to update our lives in pictures.

We have tried to take advantage of every wonderful thing that this season has to offer: plenty of playing outside, the county fair, football games, pumpkin patches, and hayrides. I guess that if it were autumn for 365 days, I would even get tired of it. But then again, that seems just impossible!

(Aly's holding a Bible the Gideon's handed out to the kids...if you're wondering what to get for your child's Christmas gift, track down a Gideon! Who would've guessed that the favorite part of the fair was a FREE Bible?!)

Caroline...what can I say. Aly HATES to be silly, Caroline lives for it. This is the kind of thing she strolls around in every day! Gotta love it.

Aly's field trip to a nearby town's pumpkin patch (Caroline, Jack and I got to tag along!)

Yet another pumpkin patch

Our computer is fixed, but it is painfully slow. Painfully. It really makes it impossible to sit down to quickly do anything on it. Downloading pictures is the worst. So now that I've used way too much time to post 4 pictures, I need to go do some real work!

Dancing in the rain, after our long drought

Why not dress up like Mrs. Clause?!

All bundled-up for our first chilly morning of fall!
