Halloween was on a Saturday this year. How exciting!! Well it was, until we looked at the forecast. RAIN! YUCK! We all met a little earlier than planned over at our neighbors to eat then it was off for trick or treating. We made it about 3 houses before the rain started. Then it rained, and rained, and rained. We still ran out of candy! We made the best of it and I still think the boys had fun.

Andrew's very first "school project" was to make a pumpkin look like a book character. He chose Pete the Cat. He happened to be home the day that the project was announced because he was sent home from school sick the day before. We went to Target to get the pumpkin and paint and he did the whole thing all by himself. Mimi took over and assisted with the glue gun later that afternoon. He was so proud of it and so were we!

Our church does a great job at Trunk or Treat every year. This year was no exception. Will wanted to dress up like a puppy this year and mom found him a costume. Andrew wanted to be LeBron James and mom found him a jersey. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pics of LeBron and our neighbor Jacob that night. Will had fun seeing everything and he was the cutest puppy ever! There was also a Lip Sync contest. Raven and I sang Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” and then I sang Blues Traveler’s “Hook”. It was super fun and I wish that there was a career in Lip Syncing. I’d be off touring the world, selling out shows. LOL.

Will's favorite book right now is"On the Construction Site" It is a book all about building a skyscraper. The really cool thing about it is if you shine a light behind the pages, magic pictures shine through. We usually read it every night.
He can tell you the difference between a pile driver, hoist, bulldozer, crane, excavator,
dump truck, and cement mixer. He loves all these construction vehicles!
I Believe in Auburn, and LOVE IT!
We took Melony and Cory with us to Auburn for their homecoming game against San Jose State. The weather forcast called for rain... and we brought the 2 year old with us. We were about to Childersburg when we both thought... "What are we doing? This is crazy!" We have had a hard and fast rule about taking kids with us to the game... they must be potty trained. This rule has always served us well because most of the time when a kid is potty trained, they are mature enough to sit still for more than 30 seconds. Who knows how this would turn out!
