Halloween 2014

Now that it's almost Christmas, I figure I should post all about Halloween night. 
This year we went with an animal theme. The boys were the Wild Kratt brothers (surprise), so they wore their creature power suits and animal masks. The girls were pink poodles because...welll...they were adorable, and they probably won't dress up as pink poodles for me when they are 12. I'll take it while I can. We had a great time trick or treating with a big group in our neighborhood. One loop around the neighborhood and then back to a friend's house for food and more fun. It was a great night!

The next morning we went to our church's Fall Fest at the park.  It was so cold that I didn't take many pictures, but we had a great time. And just for the record, Ben isn't crying. His eyes water in the cold!

Randomness Part Eleventy Billion

 Emmie thinks she's Batman.

 You know...just hanging out without my pants.



 They saw I was taking pictures and posed themselves like this.
Clearly I take way too many pictures.

 That time I forgot the stroller and had to take the wagon to church. 

 What do you mean these trash bags aren't a toy?

 Watching our friends in our awesome local marching band.

Nothing like lunch at Sam's.

Max's First Field Trip

A couple months ago Max and I got to go on his first field trip. We went with his PreK 3 (crazy September birthday) class, and it was a lot of fun. We spent the day learning about animals, crops, and riding around on hayrides and trains. It was great!

 Ready for the hayride

 Petting a horse...of course

 Each kid got to go pick out a pumpkin. I don't mean to brag, but he picked out a fabulously symmetrical and pretty pumpkin. Clearly he is learning something from me.

 Pony rides

 Train time

 Feeding rabbits

 Biggest pig (hog?) I have ever

 These goats were hungry!

 Telling his class he had found the way out and they could follow him...he isn't the oldest of four or anything

And he's also not all
Despite the fact that he almost lost a finger (read: he had a tiny spot on his finger that wasn't even bleeding) he really did have a lot of fun.
