Trick or Treat

The kids get to go to 3 trick or treats. Grandparents time two then our own. We only do a few houses at the grandparents as 3 kids accumulate a ton of candy.
We did get to the pumpkin patch last week with Evan and Nora at least. They loved exploring and Evan was so intent on picking out a good pumpkin. We carved them this weekend. Jim did a good job.

October is almost over

We have yet to buy pumpkins. Ryan hates cleaning them out so mom and dad get all the dirty work. The joys of parenting. :) They are looking forward to Trick or Treat in their new costumes though.
Heres Evan in a borrowed costume and Nora in Evan's old Stitch outfit from when he was a babe (yes its Stitch the alien NOT Eeyore).
Ry is excited he has his big Cub Scout bonfire at county park tonite. He brought home the praying mantis he took to school for their insect science project. I guess if you keep them inside for the winter they can live longer. We bought some crickets from the pet store as the mantis has to hunt and eat live bugs. So now we have a new "pet" for the winter they call Master Mantis. Joy.

Cool weather is here. Nora is cutting 6 teeth at once now. Shes snotty and wheezy.
Ibuprofen is mommy and daddys friend (and Noras too). We went to Cirque de Soleil on Sunday with my parents. They bought us tickets for our birthdays and we brought the boys. It was a great show. I highly recommend seeing a show if you ever can.
