Halloween Party

We had a Great time at the Halloween party at Sarah and Rob's last night!

There aren't a lot of costume ideas to make a pregnant belly look cute, so I just used my "pumpkin belly" idea from earlier and made it into a shirt!

In case you can't read it in the first picture...

Here's what I made to take tonight. A popcorn cake!

Very sticky, chewy, crunchy and yummy!

Here's baby Tigger (Isaac), the youngest one at the party

This one isn't very clear (I was a Canadian for the trick or treating part) =)
Keenan was exhausted and hungry and turned into a rotten pumpkin pretty quickly so we took him back to the house and got him some dinner and laid him down

Cliff and Jodi

Sarah made cute little favor boxes for the kids, and a Halloween scrapbook for each couple!

The pregos again

All the adults
(Notice how all the guys have beers... and my husband has a sippy cup?) =0)

What's with all those doctors in the back row...


9 weeks left! Yay for single digits! =)

Since most of today's pictures will come After the party tonight, here's one in the meantime... =)

Funny boy

As Keenan was finishing up his supper tonight, I heard him say, "Mass" (mess), so I looked over and he had eaten half of his Oreo and was rubbing the other half back and forth on his tray, making a big mess with it. I said, "Do you have to make a mess, can't you just eat it?" He said, "No". I said, "Are you all done?", "No", "Are you going to eat it?", "No", "What are you going to do?", "Mass!" What a kid... =)

Fun fall day

It's been a gorgeous, warm fall day today. It's supposed to get chilly again tomorrow though, so we'll have to dress Keenan warmly for trick or treating.

He finally got back to speech therapy today, after missing several weeks because he was sick. His therapist said he had changed and grown up so much since she'd seen him and she was really impressed with all of his new words. =)

After speech we did some shopping and I got something for the new baby... =)
We are planning to take a trip up to Canada in February or March and the baby will need something warm and snuggly to wear. Instead of buying a snowsuit, I found this cute bunny costume (for $8!) that I think will do just fine. It's a 3-6 month (up to 16 lbs) size, so hopefully it will still fit our 2 month old! =)

I love the ears and feet! =)

After a stop at Sonic, we came home and played outside for a while...

"Look at the wafwos (flowers) I picked!"

Smelling a flower

"I brought you some weafs!"

I think he is looking more grown up, especially with his new shoes we just got him and the "big boy" pants from Grandma..

Here's a video of him eating popcorn (and how things got a little out of hand at the end...)

At the Fair with Friends

This was our first fair as a family, and also the first fair Philip and I have ever been to together! John, Wendi and Isaac, and Erik, Andrea and Jonathan joined us for the evening and we had a lot of fun! (Wendi's blog just reminded me that I should mention it was Military Appreciation night, so we all got in for FREE!)

My pictures aren't the best quality because of the lighting, but they give you an idea of how our evening went. A couple of them were donated from Wendi, thank you!

It did get pretty cold, but we were prepared and everyone was dressed pretty warmly, so we had a good time anyway. We (especially John), were disappointed that they didn't have any 4H type animals, but they did have a lot of birds and rabbits, and also a few more 'exotic' animals, including this monkey...

Pretty random, huh?

Group shot
(Notice how the guys, including the three little ones, all look pretty bored?) =)

A fun shot of all the bright lights

Go Michigan!
(Philip got some ribbing from several Ohio State fans while we were there)

I love this one...

Ready to board the Ferris Wheel!

Keenan and I
(When we first got on and went up, while others were still getting on, Keenan said, "Out, off", but he soon decided he actually liked it =)

A view from the top

Self shot of the three of us

The boys

Checking out the view

The three pregos

Keenan and I caught the tail end of the "circus" while Philip was getting our funnel cake. I think this was the first time Keenan had ever seen elephants.

Yay for deep fried food!

The three of us with our funnel cake.. Sooo good!


A random picture of me and one of my latest "baby shirts"

We've Been Boo-ed! =)

No, this isn't a bad thing, like someone booing you because they don't like what you're doing... this is a fun Halloween tradition that I'd never heard of before this year!

Last night, Philip and I heard voices outside and a few giggles, and when I checked the door, this sign was stuck to it...

...and there was a little treat bag hanging on the door too...

I Googled it, and this it what I found out (for those of you who have never heard of this before).

You've Been BOOed!

They're popping up in a neighborhood near you: "We've Been BOOed!" signs that fly from house to house. What's behind it all?

You've been BOOed! Welcome to the wonderful world of BOO-ing.

It's a Halloween take on "Secret Santa" or May baskets: secretly leaving small gift bags or BOO baskets, a BOO poem, BOO instructions and a BOO sign at a neighbor's door.

In turn, the neighbor is asked to BOO two others, leading to a chain reaction--and Halloween fun.

To start a BOO, use our free printable BOO kit. We've got a one-page poem/instructions sheet, and three different BOO signs to make it easy to start a BOO in your neighborhood.

Print two copies of the BOO poem, and two copies of your favorite BOO sign. Add them to a small gift basket, then deliver the BOOs secretly to a friend's doorstep--and watch the BOO signs multiply.

Ready? Set? BOO!

So that's that... a "Halloween Pay it Forward" if you will...=) I guess I need to get someone else now!
