Thankful sillyness

Isaac was so excited for Halloween from the moment he first saw decorations up at the grocery store (September-ish :)  Driving to the school yesterday, we saw a blow-up turkey out on someones lawn and Isaac was thrilled to point it out and ask what holiday it was for. We started talking about Thanksgiving and how Thanksgiving time is great for thinking of all the things we're thankful for -- all the things that make us happy. We started talking about what things we were thankful for -- 

Me: I'm  thankful for our family. And for a beautiful day... What about you Isaac?
Isaac: (seriously considering for a moment) Cows!

Ha! :)

I love this little boy and spending the days with him. 

Halloween Fun

A friendly fireman, a mailman with a package delivery, a floating astronaut, and a swimming purple octopus :)

* We had a super chilly day with a couple inches of snow just before Halloween, and our first Trunk-or-treat was moved inside the church. I loved making a cute little camping scene for us (complete with mountains, mini tent,  s'mores ingredients for the trick or treaters, and a cardboard fire for 'roasting marshmallows')

* These cute kiddos loved their school Halloween fun, library storytime (for Isaac), Lee's trick or treating, and neighborhood trick or treating.

* Landon stayed home with Jordan to greet the neighborhood trick-or-treaters, and they rigged up a super fun little 'trick'. As the trick-or-treaters stood on the doorstep, Landon would answer the door and talk for a moment while Jordan lowered the candy filled jack-o-lantern bucket from the top of the porch down behind the trick-or-treaters to their happy surprise. :)

* My Dad & Shauna came for a visit and got to see the kids all dressed up in between activities and stay for a few days to visit. 

* I loved working with Ellie for a few days leading up to Halloween on making her 'purple octopus' costume. Somehow, I lost track of who was planning on what for their Halloween costumes and realized just two days before that Owen didn't really have a costume. But thanks to good old Amazon, he turned out to be a super cool astronaut! Cute kiddos!
