Happy Halloween 

We made most of our costume, wore the costumes (some had multiple wardrobe changes), dressed up for work, went to parties, got the candy, gave out candy, hung with friends and made memories! My office dressed as Moana characters for our patients and I was that crazy chicken Hei Hei. Elijah was a sexy cop at his work, Morgan made a Hanging Chad costume, Joseph made his Night Wing outfit, Mary was Batgirl, Jordan went as Green Lantern, Hanson and Gayley were going as Goldie and Bear but Hanson decided last minute he wanted to be Batman because it was more comfy! It’s been a fun time of dress up and creativity and make believe!


Mary the Teen Age Girl

We now have a teen age girl in the house. Mary celebrated her 13th Birthday this weekend and celebrated by going shopping with her best friend, Grammy and Mom and then had some amazing milkshakes at K&J Pastries. These aren’t just your average desserts they’re delicious but works of art!

She also got lots of money in cards, new sandals, a curling iron and a traditional Polish meal of breaded pork chops, sauerkraut, potatoes, pickled beets and perpogies. It’s good to be 13!

Trunk or Treat #2 & #3

Our sweet Goldie & Bear had so much fun at Double Oak Community Church’s Fall Festival in Mount Laurel. This year it was sooo chilly our poor Goldie’s teeth chattered and was ready to go get in the car to get warm. We love going to this event every year because there is never anything scary however there was a Wizard of Oz display with the Wicked  Witch of the West legs and feet sticking out from under a Haybale and on the way home Gayley said she did not want to get stuck under the hay like her little friend and was very distraught and worried about the little girl stuck under the hay. She was very troubled by the whole scene and kept telling everyone that she did not want to get stuck under the hay and we kept reassuring her she would not and that it was not real and there was no little girl under the hay. Funny what really is scary to these little ones. After this festival we went over to another churches trunk or treat and played games, took a train ride, painted pumpkins for a little while and got warm with chili, soup and hot coffee. It was a very fun filled afternoon! So glad Grammy and Paw Paw came up to enjoy these events with us! 

Trunk or Treat #1

Tonight we went to a Trunk or Treat with our super cool friend Wesley and his Mama Mrs. Kate. We had so much fun playing carnival games, filling our buckets with candy, going on hay rides, taking pictures and getting giant size cotton candy! 

Homeschool HOCO

Joseph was invited to his friends homeschoolers Homecoming and lit it up! He said it was so much fun being there with no one (except 4) knowing him. He felt like he was crashing a party and so he tore up the dance floor! He definetly accelerated the energy and made it a memorable HOCO!!

Orange Day

Today was Show Your Colors for “Orange Day” at Gayley’s school. She was so excited to wear the orange skirt Mrs. Mindy gave her for her Birthday and she loved her shirt especially the girl in the lady bug costume! She said, “Look, I’m a little pumpkin!”.

Sunday Service

Another sketch Joseph did during Sunday service. Now if he would just sketch images that our pastor is talking about like Shadrack, Meshach and Ebednego in the fiery furnace for instance.

Chelsea HOCO17

This Homecoming was a first and a last for these two handsome sons of ours. It was Joseph’s first high school homecoming and Morgan’s last at Chelsea. No dates needed for them to go and have a good time with friends. #HOCO17 #chelseahigh 

3 year Check-Up

This silly monster had her 3 year old well check-up today. It was a much happier visit today than we had a couple weeks ago when she was feeling so very bad from a fever virus. Dr. A was super impressed with Gayley’s vocabulary and funny outgoing personality. She checked out perfectly and is on a healthy tract. Gayley’s favorite part was the card game (eye exam) and was not a fan of the blood pressure cuff squeezing her arm! We think she’s pretty perfect now she’s Doctor certified as well 😉!
