Happy Halloween

We did Trunk or Treat at a local church, and for the second year in a row – we were really too busy being “Christmas” (yes, we handed out candy canes and said “MERRY CHRISTMAS!”) for me to take many pictures.  I did have a cute princess, though – not sure where my other Caterpillars (all biblical figures) are…  Well, I know B10 was off winning LIVE GOLDFISH somewhere (people, for future reference, LIVE GOLDFISH are not to be handed out to trick or treaters…).

Otto’s Birthday

Happy Birthday to my Favorite Person in the world!

For his birthday, my Dad and Minnie Mouse sent him a few items to enjoy and become “closer” to the family.  (Also included was a couple of items for Went!)

As a birthday dinner (all decked out in sports stuff), we had jambalaya!  YUM!  The Caterpillars got him some chips and salsa (his favorite snack), sunflower seeds, a stuffed baseball (to play “ball” with Went), a 2 liter of his favorite drink and a few other little things.

OPM’s Family Party

OPM’s Sweet Sixteenth Birthday is Saturday, so Otto and I planned her Family Birthday Party for tonight.  She asked for Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad for dinner, and GO helped me make strawberry cupcakes with vanilla icing.

For her “big” present, she and Otto will be going to see a Shakespearen Play at a local community theatre, next weekend.  We got her a few feather earrings (she likes those!) and a gift card to the movies, as her “small” gifts.

I love family birthdays!  (Even if half of our family was born in October!)

Cupcake Cones

For GO’s Fall Break, I promised her we would make Cupcake Cones – one of her favorite treats.  I let her pick what colour she wanted the cupcakes (food colouring – vanilla flavor!).  And she even helped me ice them to prepare them for the rest of the family.

Love this girly!

Visit from Friends

Went and JustC

31Mum and her newest little one (JustC, NC’s little sister) came to visit and meet Went.  JustC was born five weeks before Went (I got to see her when she was born, she’s grown so much)!  😀  Both little ones slept pretty much through the entire visit.

31Mum had run by Krystal’s and gotten us a 24 Steamer Pack (which I had no idea the Caterpillars would eat – but they did!), plus fries.  AND she brought us dinner/lunch for the weekend – homemade chili and hot dogs for Football Games!  😀

Overall, it was delightful to spend time with such a wonderful friend.

Preschool Fall Harvest Fest

GO’s Fall Harvest Fest was today – one of my favorite days of the year.  I really love helping out the teachers at our class booth, but the best part is riding the hayride with her.  (See her first year here and her second year here.)

Holy cow…it’s been THREE years?  *sniff sniff*  That means I only have two years left…  This was the HALF-WAY point!  😦

Okay, enough sadness – here are pictures!

Otto’s sister came to help, and ended up sitting in the office with Went during the festival, so I could help GO.  I’m so lucky to have such great family around us!
