Parley had another birthday. As much as he didn't want it, it still came. Hopefully he had a good one. He got a new flatscreen for our bedroom. It's time to say goodbye to the 80 pound 32 inch screen we bought about 15 years ago! Happy Birthday Parley. Here's to a good 44th year!
Taylor had his last Halloween parade at the elementary school. Hopefully you can guess what his costume is. Josh likes being incognito. Lots of sugar at school, lots of sugar the night before at the church trunk-or-treat party and tons of candy trick-or-treating. A few months later Taylor still has most of his and Josh only has the gross candy left! Lauren spent hours trick-or-treating (as Alice in Wonderland) and got about as much candy as Taylor and Josh combined.
Annie's annual pumpkin carving party did not diappoint this year. Annie buys and cleans out all the pumpkins so we just show up and start carving. We carve and eat. Doesn't get much better than that. This year we added a fun game to the mix. The boys loved it. We hid a piece of candy in a pie tin full of whipped cream.
