We had a great time tonight! It's so much fun to dress the kids up and parade them around. We convinced all the girls to be witches this year and Charlie ended up being Indiana Jones. This is all the kids at Grandma's house. We trick or treated in our neighborhood for a few minutes, then we went to a party at the church. We also made appearances at Grandma and Grandpa Leon's, Aunt Amanda and Uncle Jed's and Aunt Emily's house. It's moments like these that make parenting so worth it! Here are our three little adorable witches!!!

Audrey - one of the rare moments that I caught her wearing the hat.

Sydney as an "October Witch." She was surprisingly sweet tonight and wanted to share her candy with everyone!

Katie - always wanting to trick or treat all night long. This girl is always ready for a party!

Here's Charlie in one of his Indiana Jones poses. He's been wearing this costume for the last three days. I actually had to pry it off of him to wash it for tonight!

Pumpkin Patch

This was our family trip to the pumpkin patch. I decided to take them myself after school because I figured Saturday would be too busy. If I ever think about doing this again, stop me! I didn't think about the fact that we were going to get PUMPKINS, and that we would somehow have to pay for them and get them to the car, all the while managing the kids. Overall, we had fun... but I'll never do that again! Here's Audrey because she wouldn't get in the picture with the other kids.
The other kids with the two pumpkins we were trying to decide between. I would only let them pick one because it suddenly dawned on me that I would have to carry them out!

This is the hayride. Audrey loved it, but was constantly trying to climb out over the sides!

Katie's Field Trip

I went with Katie on her field trip to the pumpkin patch yesterday. She talked about it for days before and she had a ton of fun. Here are a couple of the pictures I got.

Katie's friends, Reice, Enoch, and Mya.

Katie and her best friend Mya with the pumpkins they picked.

Getting ready to leave on the hayride! Boy it was fun to spend time with just one of our kids at a time. We don't get that opportunity often enough!

I just realized that our baby may be watching a little too much TV. She doesn't have very many words yet, but the sad thing is that these are some of them...spongebob, little bear, dora, diego. Sad, huh? I thought that was pretty bad, but last night I found out it's worse than I thought. I heard her crying in the other room, when I asked the other kids what they did to her (thinking they had turned off her show), I was told that they just took the remote away from her. That started me thinking that she really does enjoy holding the remote while she watches TV. It gets worse... she calls it "ba-ba." She carries it around with her and cries if it gets left behind. And don't you dare try to take it from her. Luckily she will accept a remote from another room so she doesn't turn the channel on us. I thought it would be cute to take a picture of her with her favorite things, the bottle, the binky, and none other than the remote. Looks like she's following in her father's footsteps.
