Happy Halloween!

This year we went to ICC's party. It's such a great time and very educational too. We learned about some saints we hadn't heard of before. People are really getting creative and doing their research.

This year Dominic chose St Michael the Archangel.
Blaise went as St Francis of Assisi

Xavier was St Patrick

and Zachary was St John the Baptist.

Afterwards we were able to go around to a few (5) houses too. Between the party and the houses, we reaped a lot of candy!

The week before was busy with costume creation.
Here is Blaise helping sew his costume. It kept him from bouncing off the walls for a while anyway.

First snowfall

Our first snowfall at our new house! 10-10-09

It didn't take long to make tracks. Let it be very clear that we are a home with children!

Pumpkin Patch

October 6th at Vala's Pumpkin Patch
Their 25th year running

my pumpkins

S'mores were provided by Bag 'n Save

The boys' favorite part was panning for rocks

We found all kinds of rocks! ...quartz, crystal, fools gold and others.

Zachary was there for a while then my mom offered to take him to our house.
That was a big help. We were there 6 hours total! It was free because UP paid as a company party. So yeah, we really got our money's worth!
In cinderella's pumpkin carriage..

Getting to see my children enjoy it as much as I did, makes me get to enjoy it all over again~
