(Oh, ya, and we have sent the kids to sleep with grandma tonight so we can have the night to ourselves!?!). Dave sent me these flowers for the first time in our whole marriage..Oh and today is also our 16th wedding ANNIVERSARY.

Em's Tooth

I am so sorry for not updating my blog!!! We just don't have a whole lot going on and I am so, not creative enough to think of anything extra to blog about.

This has been a week of listening to Emilie about her loose tooth. "Augh, is it bleeding?", Mom, feel how loose it is?", "look at this", etc... and then it fell out. She can not handle anything that is even a bit bloody or if she even THINKS it will hurt She will scream...she drives us nuts, but she is so cute at the same time.

The yard is finally done...NO MORE DIRT!!

I haven't had to sweep dirt all week!! It has been so nice. And with the new basketball court I haven't even had kids in the house. (The boys are dirt magnets and still find it over at the neighbors) Thanks Dave, I love it!!!

Megans Halloween Party


We had a really fun Halloween...(The yard was fininshed tonight at 6:00 which made it even better). We started the day off at Emilie's school Halloween parade and then helping with her class party. Its fun to see all the kids her age, they are so cute. After school the work began...Megan wanted to have a party for her friends because they are getting to old to Trick-or-treat. We made all kinds of treats and dipped lots of things in chocolate...Then the party began.

I took the kids trick-or-treating and Dave stayed home to chaperone and answer the door. This is really our first year of actually trick-or-treating in our own neighborhood. We have such great neighbors and friends and it made all the difference in the world.

I took the little kids to Johnson's Spook Ally which was a mistake-they are way too little and completly freaked out!
Anyways here is a few pics of the kids...I didn't have my camera with me so there aren't a lot of pictures.

I just have to say the the 80's were great and it is so funny to see our kids dressed up like we use to - and we actually thought it was cool. They even went outside, had a huge audience and danced to thriller, and ghost busters and watched Goonies...It brought back a few memories
