My Girls


 I absolutely love these sweet ladies.

I love the dirty knee.  She may love pretty things, but she's no stranger to dirt and rough play.

Our Saturday

 The kids had their last soccer games of this season yesterday.  I unfortunately didn't get any pictures from Meredith's game (it was at 8:30 am and super cold, so I stayed home with the other kids while Kris went).   Here are a few from C's last game.  This was the first season of soccer for both the kids, and they learned so much.  And they really liked it.  We are planning to sign them up for the Spring session as well.


 
Some of big brother's biggest fans...


After a morning/early afternoon of soccer, we tackled the back yard.  It was literally covered in leaves...a brown and red blanket that went from fence to fence.  I wish I had taken a "before" picture!   Last year, we raked a little bit at a time.  This year, we waited until all (or at least most of) the leaves fell and just got it all done in one day.  It was a lot of work, but we had lots of little helpers which made it go a little faster.  At one point, Caleb's friend J came over and we put him to work also. ;)

Figuring out the best strategy to fill the lawn bags.

Halloween 2014



 Being a Jedi Knight is serious business...










...but even Obi Wan Kenobi will smile for his mama.


 This boy wants to be a "PS man" (that's not a typo - it's what he calls it) when he grows up.  When I saw this costume several weeks ago for $5, I just couldn't pass it up.  The original "worker man" costume was quickly forgotten and replaced with dreams of being a delivery man instead.



"Ding-Dong, PS man is here."
 As much as I tried to talk Meredith out of being Elsa (everyone is going to be her I said, we already have soooo many princess dresses I said), she was adamant that she wanted to dress as the famous queen of Frozen.  So we went with it.  And made little sis be Anna.



 


As is becoming our tradition, we trick-or-treated with 2 other families in our neighborhood, with whom we have become great friends.  And we all had dinner together after (our house this year).

 

 Norah's 1st treat!


Walking back from that 1st house like she's been doin' this her whole life.


 Daddy is so sweet....he patiently walked (sometimes carried) Norah up to the houses, even if that meant he lagged behind the group (while I sipped my hot cider and took pictures).  Norah is one lucky lady.

A few shots from the after-party...





The candy for our visitors - Norah kept carrying it around.
