Halloween was a really fun weekend filled with school fun, pumpkin carving and trick or treating.

My dad just emailed me this picture of Bummie from the early 1970's. I was so excited to see a picture I had never seen before.

Halloween Skeletons

Tate and EB got new Halloween pajamas and they could not be happier. Now they can match! I am sure these are going to be a favorite all year long.

The Book of Sirach

Today was the 3rd grade mass at SFX and EB wanted to participate and was so excited to do the first reading. I could not have been more proud of her. I watched her tears in my eyes. I was so focused on her I forgot to push play on the video recorder so we had a do over! :)

Alex was so proud of Ellie he ran up to her right after mass to let her know.

Here are the videos -- Take 1 and Take 2!

Lyon's Pride

Harper had a very busy weekend swimming. She did great and I was so proud of her for every event. Here is some great video of her during the relay!

Just call him Robin Hood!

Tate got very creative today and was in a zone playing with his Kid K'Nex. He was working very hard and I had no idea on what. Finally he appeared with his bow and arrow.

It did not end there. He has his target hanging above the fireplace and his bow from another hook to "keep it safe".
There are 4 different kinds of arrows, depends upon what you want to shoot.
He left no stone unturned with his "legend".

Fall Leaf Fun

The kids had a lot of fun playing in the leaves. So much so they all came home for lunch on today. They ate really quick and then worked on perfecting their jumps in to the pile that kept getting crushed. We even had some visitors after school to play in the leaves. It was all fun and games until EB and Tate thought it would be a ton of fun to hide the panda in leaves. Not so much fun to find.

We all got to go to Shelley and Paul's to play with Brodie. We all left wanting more baby! Shelley should have had a few more so we would not have had to share.
