As is our annual Halloween tradition, we went trick or treating on Mai Street Placerville.
This year Scott was Captain Picard, (complete with phaser and tri-corder app!) I was a spiderweb and Jonah was my spider, chloe was Athen, Dillon a robber, and Molly a butterfly!
Chloe looked sad there, but really she was just looking at her candy…. 🙂
Here is Dillon’s awesome pumpkin;
Hope you had a fun Halloween too!
We try every year to get to Apple Hill and hit the pumpkin patch for our Halloween Jack-o-lantern needs! So for FHE we loaded up (most) of the family and headed out.
Daddy grabbed his pumpkin,
and I had mine,
ha! I LOVE that picture! here is his normal face:
When we got home we finished the night off with roasting hot dogs and marshmallows on our little bonfire (are bonfires supposed to be big?, so is that an oxymoron? )
It was a perfect fall day and we had a great time!
Here is our darling baby boy, number 5!
born on June 25th,
weighing in at 9 lbs 12 oz
and a long 22 3/4″!!
welcome to the chaos Jonah!!
I’m coming back to blog land!! It is the best journaing i’ve ever done and I miss it! So stay tuned, I will be back in the saddle again SOON!
The past weeks have flown by. Here is some of what we were up to:
A week in Oregon, staying in my sister and brother in law’s ocean front home – fantastic!!
Back just in time for Halloween:
Dill was a mad scientist, Chloe a ghost
Daddy’s little kitty
And a big event- Molly turned ONE!! (sad day for mom, my baby is growing too fast)
this is her awesome “cheeser” face, I love it
Her cake was banana with awesome cream cheese frosting, decorated with chocolate butterflies. It was really good
She sat in her high chair with a big slice in front of her, and I was waiting for the grand mess to ensue, but she only took a few pieces and made no mess!! Unfortunately she wasn’t feeling quite normal, the next day she came down with croup! That whole night she was REAL low-key, but at least she wasn’t miserable on her birthday, only for the next 7 days!…
Dillon, the only boy in a sea of sisters, turned 12! Wierd. I have designated him a super trooper because last week he underwent surgery for a hernia! – No not from lifting weights, but one that he has probably had his whole life, and just recently detected. Good ‘ol turn your head and cough routine…
He was pretty nervous sitting there in the bed waiting- until they “gave him something to relax”. He is recovering great and extremely happy that the doctor gave him a note to get out of PE for TWO WEEKS – score.
This morning we had a pancake breakfast:
followed by a parade for the kids
Tonight we will go watch fireworks, and I am going to try shooting some pics with my new camera, wish me luck!!
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!
