A Fireman and a Fairy!

So, Halloween night. We had fun taking the kids trick or treating. Audrey was so exhausted and wasn't too happy about being in her costume at first. She relaxed a bit as we pulled her and Alexander along in the red wagon. So cute! Dad was in charge of the camera tonight and took these great pics!

Pumpkin Patch with the Playgroup!

um, Ya! Try getting Audrey, Alexander, Jillian, Bryce, Delaney and Addison to sit still for a photo! We did have fun (well, maybe Audrey not so much- she needed a nap, didn't like the costumet, etc.)! It probably didn't help that it's still getting into the mid to upper 80's here! We picked out our pumpkins and I can't wait to see how we decorate those!

Operation Christmas Child

It's never too soon...

So, this year I really want to teach Alexander about GIVING, especially with the holidays coming in a few months... So, we got him VERY involved in preparing a shoebox for operation Christmas Child! If you don't know about it, here is the link

I am hoping it will help him realize Christmas Is about more than HIM getting STUFF, kwim? AND it's a great way to help others!

Here's a picture of him helping me pack the box. We even "named" the child Jonny that we made the box for.
