Our Halloween

We stuck around the neighborhood and trick-or-treated with friends and had a great night!

Life had been so busy around our house lately...some days I feel like I can't breathe. The photography business had been CRAZY with the holiday rush, hockey season has begun, there is homework for four almost everynight...etc etc. Last weekend we had a big housewarming party with 60+ guests(what was I thinking?) We are busy getting our halloween costumes in order for Wednesday. There will be a "pajama person", a baseball player, Davy Crockett, and Minnie Mouse. Stay tuned for photos! Tim is leaving for the week for a business trip so
I will be on trick-or-treat duty alone this year.

Well Deserved

We got back tonight (I guess it really was last night as its now 2:12 am and I am sitting at my computer working) from our weekend of R&R...well 6 people in a standard hotel room with ONE tv doesn't techincally count as R&R...but we made the most out of it. The kids had a blast at the waterpark and I got to read and take naps and try to forget about work for awhile. It was great to get away.Here are Carter and Cooper after their first trip down the "HURRICANE"...kind of what it might be like to get flushed down a toilet.
Kennedy tried the waterslides for the first time this year, but I think her favorite part was waiting for the big water bucket to tip over and dump water on everyone.Big "E" is learning how to golf....he's ten months old already...I guess it's time.

Perhaps I should try... a meal at home for once. I input our expenses for the week into the computer today and the entries went like this: Pizza Hut, Qdoba, Pizza Ranch, McDonalds, Village Inn, Dominos, HiHo, Duane's, Happy Joes. And that was just for one week.

Oh goodie...snacks.

Our kids have always gone to Sunday School on Sunday mornings while Tim and I go to church. This year, Katelyn has to take sermon notes for confirmation so we have been having the kids go to church with us. This morning was apparently the first time they have every witnessed communion being passed. We were late for church (as usual) so we ended up in one of the first few rows. The usher passed the plate down our pew and Kennedy...thinking it must be snacktime for all the church goers...immediately shoved her hand into the wafers and tried to grab a few. During the rest of the communion, I had to field questions from my boys...why can't we have some? When we will get to taste that? What is that? It's not real blood is it? Why are you eating that? Do you like it? Will I like it? Does anyone like it? Do you think the drummer likes doesn't look like he likes it.

I never thought that my kids wouldn't know what communion was or why we do it...but I guess that is just one more reason we should have been having our kids come to church with us all along.
