At Gavin's program Sabrina would not stay away from the piano by the stage. Owen had a hard time focusing and taking pictures of Gavin because Sabrina was so funny. I have at least 6 clips of her playing and dancing. In this one, if you look close you can see Gavin performing in the back ground. (now it could be that it is hard for Owen & I to focus on the program because we have seen the same one EIGHT times... we will see it more once Sabrina starts at this preschool)

Again I am having to admit my failings as a parent. I don't have any pictures of Jillian or Hayden other than when they were carving pumpkins. They when to a party and then trick or treating with friends so they didn't come home til they were done. Good thin I wen to the parade and have some pictures in their costumes.
Jared left part of his Grandpa costume at school so we need to find a new costume. Good thing I buy Jillian's Dresses with room to grow. They fit him just PERFECT. The only thing I need to buy was his own tights. As you can see they are great for playing soccer in the house in. Jared worked the girl costume to the max. He took one of my purses as his trick or treat bag. He told me at one house they asked what he was dressed as. He said, "a GIRL". then the people started laughing so hard because they thought he WAS a girl. Owen is so proud.
Owen only had to take the two little one out this year. He was gone about a 1/2 hour and then he was done. Good thing they are cute and people drop extras in the bag because they came back with plenty. We only had 5 kids come by our house so, I am putting it out there, I AM NOT BUYING CANDY NEXT YEAR. We will have a dark house with no pumpkins so don't stop by. Next holiday, thanksgiving...here we come.
This year we were a little late to the caving of pumpkins. Though it did fill some of the time while the kids were waiting for it to get dark on Halloween. Gavin had his own to carve from his visit to the pumpkin patch with his school. The other chose to have one LARGE pumpkin to cave together. The turned out really cute but you will just have to take my word for it because I forgot to take pictures of them.

We decided Gavin needed an outlet for some of his energy. We love what karate has done for Hayden so we are letting Gavin give it a try. The above video is from his VERY FIRST lesson. So far I think he his doing great. Though I must admit he we hilarious to watch. I was trying not to laugh so I had tears running down my face. For those of you who know Gavin, he was told to stand still on the spot after each punch or kick. But in true Gavin style he was BoUnCiNg like Tigger unable to contain his excitement.

Rachel was kind enough to take family photos of us one day while we were there. The day we went to Plymouth we got home and the weather and the timing were to perfect not to try. I am glad we did as the next day was raining. I think we got some pretty great pictures. Ones I know I will treasure. Thank you Rachel.
