Happy Hallow-eeng

No- it is not a typo, that is how Baily and Malia say it, "Halloweeng!"

Besides going trick or treating in the POURING rain we had a great Halloween!

We celebrated at my mom and dad's with some Halloween games and yummy food. We usually trick or treat as a big group with my siblings, my Dad and their kids, but we were party pooped on this year... Dad had to work, Tara's family left early to go be a part of their neighbors spook alley, Tami has a one year old who didn't like getting rained on (the nerve...) and Troy and Rae Lynne had to up and move to Wyoming and weren't there at all. So it was just us.

My kids were so sad and for the first little while they were doing a whole lot of complaining. I finally convinced them (some would call it threatened) to cheer up and make the best of if. After that we had a great time. Thanks to my Mom who kept Dalin safe and dry with her in the house.

We didn't get as much candy this year (did I mention pouring rain) and the half of the kids candy that wasn't eaten before we made it home was sopping wet. Oh well...fewer cavities. Speaking of cavities...have you ever taken 4 kids to the dentist at the same time!!!??? Not fun, just got the bill in the mail today.

Kylee was a vampire countess.

Here she is with her friend, Holly.

Tyler was a knight.

Baily was Wonder Woman.

Malia is the Cat in the Hat (she is obsessed with the new show "The Cat in the Hat" on PBS)

And, of course, where would the Cat be without Thing 1 and Thing 2?!

My sweet Dalin was a monkey. He is almost 9 weeks. The time NEVER went by that fast when he was inside of me! He already weighs 11.5 pounds. We know how to fatten them up around here. He is in the middle of a yucky cold, that I gave him =( but other than that is doing well. I will quote a friend who also has a new baby, "With a newborn in the house, it's hard not to have a favorite child!"

YAY!!!! I always LOVE your posts and pictures! Everyone's costumes were SUPER cute!! I'm lovin you and James as Thing 1 and Thing 2 :) One of these days I'm gonna convince Troy to dress-up with me. That stinks you guys got rained on! Soggy candy is a real bummer. We sure missed sharing in all of the Halloween festivities with you all this year. We can't wait to see you all at the end of the month for Turkey Day visit!!! Love you guys!
