Catching up in pictures

It's been two very busy and fun weeks around here (well, the vomitus maximus, which hit me on Saturday, was no fun).

Ashley practiced her taping on the boys. She gets practice and it slows them down! Win-Win!!

We dressed up Kaytee's puppy, Aspen, as a cow for Halloween and took her trick-or-treating. Aspen was a gift from her boyfriend. Not exactly the gift I would have wanted for a college kid...
Levi enjoying the fall weather on his 4-wheeler, dressed as Darth Vader. It's Vader-Cross!
A recent visitor to our back door. Thank goodness we don't have a doggy door or this little guy would have been an indoors guest. That's an oppossum, for the record.
We carved pumpkins, out in the sunshine on the back patio. There was a lot of drama involved in this activity.

I couldn't convince anyone that toasted pumpkin seeds are yummy so they went to the compost pile.
Seth's big present for his birthday was his very own 4-wheeler. (Which by the way he calls a Form Wheeler) It's bigger than Levi's but slower. (Thank goodness, he is a maniac on it) In fact, it has speed settings and we can lock it out at the slowest speed. Amen!

And finally, the un-veiling of the home-made costumes for Seth and Ahren. Can anyone guess who they are? Only a few houses got it. I think they are adorable.
The backs of their shirts. See the cockroaches?
This kid was absolutely hilarious trying to act his character. He especially loved the facial hair.
See the little fu hanging off his chin? That made me giggle all night.
Levi would not settle for anything other than Darth Vader as his costume. i tried and tried to convince him that trick-or-treating in that helmet would be uncomfortable and unsafe.

Ashley dressed up and went house to house with us, helping the little ones. Kaytee cam along too, but I didn't get any pics of her.
Two peas in a pod.

Behavior is good one day and off the charts the next. Typical for this time of year and all the activities going on. I am handling most of it pretty well. There are a couple of things that are really getting ot me and I will talk about them later this week.

Oh my gosh, that is so cute! I knew right away who the boys were- the girls and I watch that show all the time. Teena in particular loves it. Although we all gross out on the spiders!

Billy the Exterminator and his brother...right? I love that show!

Angie said...

So do you guys still have the Yorkie and the Boxer too? Pretty soon you will have 6 dogs like us!
