Our First Snow of the Season!!

We got a bit of snow on Friday afternoon and a certain little someone couldn't wait to get out and play in it!
The people who live in areas which get a lot of snow throughout the winter must laugh at us here when we get these little dustings. You see the little bit we got? It resulted in a multi -vehicle pile up on the highway, there were other accidents all over the place, Verizon went out and all after school activities were cancelled. Too funny!

But...this little guy had fun!!

Have a great weekend!!

Fun at the Park!!

I took advantage of the great weather last Friday and took the two little ones to the park while their brothers were in school. They had a great time! It's the first time "A" has actually been able to "play." She always just hung out in the stroller before.
She loved crawling around through the grass and playing with the leaves.

"D" loved the swings and the slide.

"A" even climed a little on the jungle gym.

she loved the leaves.

and the swings

and she's off...
we finished the afternoon at the library where we picked out several books, played with the puppet theater and puzzles, then headed home to meet the boys at the school bus.
A great day!!

We went swimming yesterday! The kids love the pool and each time we go, N and D's swimming skills get better and better. M's swimming lessons have paid off, you should see him go. He's great in the water!

What a way to chart growth! At this very time last year, D could barely keep his head above the water while standing on his tippy toes. and he had to tilt his head waaaay back just to keep his face out of the water. This year, he stands in the same spot and he's way above the surface now. N ventures further out into deeper water than he did last year and M is jumping and diving and swimming really well.

And this one? Well, last year I was very pregnant with her and this year she's like a little fish!!

I think she had the most fun of all of them. What a difference a couple of months make. During the summer, she liked the water but we just carried her around and she didn't really interact with it in any way. Yesterday ~ a whole different story! She splashed and kicked and giggled. I even put her on the side and she would lean forward and 'fall in' so to speak. I would catch her before she went under and then she would do it again and again. Laughing all the while. I wish I could have taken some pictures of her in the water but obviously that can't be done while I'm holding her!! Next time when A is with us, I'll get some.

Hope everyone had a good weekend!

The Pumpkin Carving and The Costumes...

After breakfast this morning, we carved pumpkins!
Each one of the kids designed their own pumpkin and then we helped them do the carving.

Lots of seed and goo emptying took place...

And finally, after what seemed like an eternity to them, we went trick-or-treating!

but not before lots of costume photos!

The kids got to go out with their cousins ~ they loved it. It's so much fun when we do that!!
Here they are all together. "A" is a strawberry, although it's hard to tell because she is all bent over trying to pick up something off of the floor.

Here they are again and this one is kind of funny because you can tell they're getting antsy and want to go out. I like how they're all looking at each other. Plus, now the strawberry has the clone gun. Too funny!

and here's the last group shot ~ again, cute how they're all looking at each other. Kind of like there is something funny going on that only they know about. A bit blurry...they're ready to go and are getting wiggly.

the strawberry

the Arf Trooper

the beautiful witch

and Pooh Bear

These are the only ones I could get individual shots of.

and they're off!

They had a good time, saw lots of their friends, and we even ran into our parish priest who was out in the neighborhood! Good times!

Oh, and we ran into a Sumo Wrestler as well. Had to get a photo of this one! My only question is this: How do you think he keeps the costume inflated? I mean, do they come with one of those fans like inflatable lawn ornaments you see at Christmas?
Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween

The kids had fun picking out their pumpkins...D and A fell asleep so I didn't get any pictures of them.
Photos of them in their costumes coming soon!
Happy Halloween everyone!
