Halloween was kinda, super, very unorganized this year. I was out of town for trunk or treat, so J let the kids pick a costume out of teh boxes. Same with Halloween night. I didn't even snap a shot of my younger two!!! ugh
Boston wanted a shot with a monster since he was a zombie….
Kam wanted to be the same thing she was last year…..
and Jaden decided last minute to be a missionary.
Vivian does this cool thing where if she starts pouting about something, I ask her to go to her room until she's happy…and um, SHE DOES IT! She runs back there, reads a book or two, or something 9 or 10 and then comes out all smiles! She's awesome!!!!
I started the bath for these two the other day and TOTALLY forgot….bad mom moment…they were so excited to get into the "big swimming pool".
And yes….I threw a party. I miss being the party thrower….I just feel like so many people are so busy here, and that I'm kinda, um, lame now, so I never throw them, but I decided to throw a Favorite things party and IT WAS A HIT! There were about 16 of us, and they all brought such fun things. I totally forgot to take pictures of it all, but we did snap a few before the party of myself and Millie. She just loves me! :)
And I'll end with a sweet moment with the older 3 playing Trash. They go through game phases….it was trash a few weeks ago, now it's 4 player Mancala or the Marble maze…but no matter what game they play, they usually put it away when they're done, then go ride bikes…everyday!
