Construction Worker, LadyBug, Puppy....Oh My!

 The kids have had no shortage of activities over the past week to which they could wear their costumes! 

Enjoy the many pictures in this post....and, in case you can't see past the disguises, that's Caleb in the construction worker gear, Meredith in the wings, and sweet little Shane in the puppy costume. ;)

Two weekends ago, we went to our church's Fall Fest.  The kids were able to "Trunk or Treat" (go from car to car to collect candy), "compete" in a 100-yard dash, jump in a pumpkin bouncy house, and play with some friends. 

Collecting candy...

Caleb during the boys''s hard to run in those work boots!

Meredith LOVED the race...while I did pick her up and "zoom" her through the air for the middle 10-20 yards of the race, she ran the rest of it all by herself. I'm pretty sure she was the littlest girly out there.  So cute!

Cutest. Puppy. Ever.  (What's that you say?  I'm biased?) 
Seriously, can I just freeze time so that this little boy stays this little and sweet and innocent and cuddly forever?  Please please please???

Caleb singing in his preschool program this past Friday night...

Unfortunately, my camera battery died just after this (which also happened to be the beginning of the night) so I was unable to snap any more photos from the party. =(

On Saturday, we had a great time celebrating our friend Mikayla's 2nd birthday at a nearby park! All of the kiddos wore costumes, which made it extra special.

Our little swingin' lady...

 Every construction worker needs a truck to drive...=)


And tonight, we did some trick-or-treating in our neighborhood.

Caleb loved going from house to house.  He loved every part of the process...visiting the neighbors, ringing the bells, picking out candy, trying to decipher whether people were actually at home or not based on how many lights were/were not on, etc.

Our little lady, trying hard to keep up with Big Brother...

Enjoying the ride...

It got dark (and cold) fast!  But, who needs a flashlight when you've got a costume with reflectors?

They each got to pick out one treat to have when we got home.  Neither of the kids are a huge fan of candy, though they both like suckers.

While we are cautious with how much "Halloween" we allow the kids to experience (no scary or gory stuff, please!), it is fun to dress up and play with our friends!

Go Cardinals Go!

Hi there.  It's Me, Caleb.  Mommy's letting me take over the blog tonight.

As many of you know, our Daddy loves baseball.  More specifically, he loves the St. Louis Cardinals.  When Mommy and Daddy got married, they used to argue (all in fun, of course) about baseball, since Mommy was a Cubs fan.  But, Mommy has never cared all that much about baseball teams anyway, so at some point over the last 5-ish years, has come to like the Cardinals as well (Yadier is her favorite).  So we are officially a family of Cardinals fans.  It's true. We (us kids) are not entirely sure what being a baseball fan is all about, but we think it has something to do with watching TV and cheering and wearing certain colors.  In our case, lots of red.  I like that, because red is my favorite color.

As you can imagine, our Dad is really really really excited that the Cards are in the World Series this year.  And since he is so excited, we're excited as well.  We hope they win, because that would make Daddy very happy!  Go Cardinals Go!

Go Daddy Go!

 We've enjoyed watching Kris play soccer on Sundays over the past couple of months.  While we haven't made it every week, we've managed to go for a good portion of their games.  And, while we don't end up actually watching much of the game, the kids love playing at the park next to the field as well as in the dirt mounds on the old baseball diamond nearby.  Caleb and Meredith also love to take time to point out Daddy on the field and are always quick to cheer for him as well as tell him "Good game, Daddy" at the end.
