Good Times

Chloe has been eating cereal! She loves it and can not get enough of it. Although she still makes quite the mess while eating. It is actually entertaining to watch Tyler & Hannah while Chloe eats. They keep gagging and running away because "It is so gross!"

Here is Joni & Tracey at a surprise birthday party we had for Joni. It was a fun game of Taboo, which Joni, Jake & I kicked butt. Joni kept a close eye on Tracey's words.

Here we all are playing the game. Jon, Andy & Andy's brother, Matt, were sleeping on the couches in the living room. And it was only 9:00pm! But, they had spent most of the day baling Christmas trees so they were exhausted. See mom's blog, Poyda Postings, for pictures on that story.

Tyler & Hannah were so excited for snow. They ran out the door in their pajamas. Atleast he put a scarf on though. As you can see, I am not ready for snow...the patio chairs were still on the deck. Oops. They are put away now, they really are.

Halloween Fun

We went to the Halloween Parade again this year. Here is Hannah wondering where all the candy is! But trust me, they got plenty. And I think Jon & I are eating most of it. Great.

Here is Chloe for her first Halloween. She was a cute little caterpillar. It actually helped to keep her nice and warm. Jon kept holding her during the parade because women giving out candy always stopped and gave some to her - but really to him. But they didn't stop and give her candy if Joni or Tabby were holding her. Hm. Men with babies really do draw attention!

Here is my lovely Incredible Hulk. I tried so hard to try and talk Tyler into being something different. I just think it is so ugly. But I had to give in to the fact that I have a 6 year old boy. The funny thing is, he has never watched anything Incredible Hulk. He just loves it though.

And here is Hannah Snow White. She was really cute in her black wig. She loves being a princess.

Deeply Missed

As many of you know, Jon's dad passed away October 29. It was kind of expected, but yet this soon was a shock. He will be deeply missed by so many. It was a rough week for our family. Jake passed away on Wednesday and then Kari's dad had a heart attack on Thursday. He is doing pretty good and recovering. In the last three weeks we have had in this order: Tyler with the flu, Tyler's birthday, Chloe with a bad rash (she still has it) Chloe's baby dedication, Jake's passing, Jim's heart attack, the funeral, Halloween, Hannah with the flu, Kari with step throat and mastitis. I know, everybody has a list, but I needed to vent mine a little. :) But we are all recovering from everything, slowly but surely. Thank you everyone for your thoughts, prayers, cards, meals and so much more. You are all deeply appreciated.
