Halloween Scrooge and Sweet Kids

So I'm sitting here waiting for trick or treaters. We haven't had anyone yet but I'm convinced it's our neighbors fault. For the second year in a row they have their sprinklers turned on! He did this last year and we really thinks he does this to keep the kids away. I think it is just mean. I understand if you don't want to celebrate Halloween but really - just don't turn your lights on and don't answer the door but you don't have to be mean about it and turn your sprinklers on!
And now on a happy note, here are some pictures of Cole and Kate.......

It's a Dog's Life

Here's Reilly trying to show her team spirit. She's a pretty easy going dog so she is dressing up like a Husker fan for Halloween.
Ivan's a little out of control...
And Emily's a little difficult too.
But we just wanted to show off all our Halloween creativeness (which is sadly lacking).

Sick Day

I haven’t been feeling well this week so I stayed home on Tuesday to rest. So I got to catch up on all the morning shows and I came across Amy Grant on the View. I started to reminisce...I remember receiving my first Amy Grant cassette tape for my birthday and playing it on my walkman during our Florida trip. I remember bugging my mom so she would repeat the words to El Shaddai over and over so I could get them down. Then I remember in 4th or 5th grade signing “Fat Baby” at our school talent show. Johanna and I made it into a duet though I don’t think we made it through the whole song without laughing. Does anyone else remember that song (I’m sitting here singing it in my head - he’s sampled solid foods once or twice but he says doctrine leaves his cool as ice – he’s just a fat, he’s just a fat little baby)

D loves it when I sing that song. He can sing all the songs by KISS and I can sing all the songs by Amy Grant. Obviously we grew up in way different worlds. But now that I think about it I'm going to have to bring the Amy Grant Collection on our road trip this weekend. He's going to be so excited!

Happy Birthday Shandra!

Jessica didn't even let us practice she just recorded the whole thing. A couple of things to look/listen for:

  • Kristi's wink. This cracks me up!
  • The dog bark. Ivan just wanted to wish you a happy b-day too.
  • Stacy's dance.
  • Who is Jen Ken hiding from?

Down in the Bayou

Just wanted to post some more pictures from our trip to Lafayette. We went to Avery Island to show D some Louisiana alligators...

Here's Johnny trying to climb a tree

And then Cole had to have a try
We had so much fun playing with Cole. He's at such a fun age. Here he is working on a puzzle. Showing off his puzzle making skills...
Me, Dana and Kate
Grandpa and Kate - this is their bonding time.
And here is a video of Cole. You can hear his infectious laughter which is one of my favorite things about him.

Baby Kate

We finally got to meet Baby Kate this weekend when we traveled to Lafayette. She turned a month old and is sweet as can be.
