The Third

Every once in a while, I remember to share some things about this lovely little creature in our family.  As of late, he has been so funny, perceptive, and sweet.  I wish I could recall some of the funnier stories...Right now, he is calling clothes labels "mabels" and is very confused why there are "recess" peanut-butter cups. We had also been going through a long period of him invading our bed.  I promised him if he slept in his bed for five nights in a row, I would give him a present.  I gave him "sleeping bear" and so far this tactic has been quite successful. It helps that we have buy-in from Adam's parish administrator who comments on how tall he is growing now that he is sleeping in his own bed. Josiah is certainly one big kid. It is hard for me to believe he will go to kindergarten next year.

Rainy Day Fort

I told the kids to go up and build a fort this morning because soccer was cancelled.  I came up to our office/guest room and found this!

All Hallows' Eve

From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!

Once again, Halloween was a festive occasion.  We had our third annual chili supper and trick or treating on the town's most populated section.  The kids were eagerly anticipating Halloween all day, but couldn't wait to go to the "soda" lady first.  We got the evening started off well with a can of carbonated sugar. During the course of the evening, I ended up with no children of my own...Our kids this year were Jack Sparrow, Elsa (cliche, I know) and a Dementor. Adelaide walked so much of the borough that she came home with over 150 pieces of candy.  Now to hiding it in fistfuls when no one is paying attention!
