Community Halloween

Last Wednesday the kids painted pumpkins at church. The next night we all met back at the church. The kids dressed in their costumes and handed out pumpkins to the residents of Grant Village. The kids had a ball and it was nice to see some of our church neighbors. Here's a picture of Zane , Zoë and Samuel. With my lovely assistant Meriah.
We tried our best to get a picture of all of the kids afterwards. But I think all the sugar from the candy started to kick in.

My School

Here are a few pictures from My School (the daycare Zane and Zoe) attend. In this picture you can see Zane's shiner. He fell a few weeks ago in church and that bruise just popped up. Here's Zoe waiting for snack time.
This is my great nephew Ethan. He attends My school too. He was enjoying his bananas with chocolate dip that they had for snack. I had to run back out and get my camera. I couldn't miss capturing that happy face.

Halloween Fest

I took the kids to Halloween Fest at Preston Miller park a little over a week ago. It was earlier in the day this year and it was a shorter time period. The lines for the booths seemed really long. We stayed for a little while, but Mitchell and the twins got tired quickly. Mercedes and Cassidy had a ball. Those two love games. Zane the Lion.
Zoë as Piglet.

Cassidy as Sharpay(High School Musical), Mercedes the Prom Queen and Mitchell the werewolf

Jackson's Orchard

We went to Jackson's two weeks ago. I'm just now finally getting the pictures up. Of course it was warm and sunny that day as you can tell from the shorts and short sleeves. It was busy, but it was fun. I couldn't get all of my kids to look at the camera at the same time. So I had to pick the picture with the most kids looking in the right direction. This is my friend Dorcus. She came out and spent the day with me and my traveling circus.
Angela, Danielle and Mercedes also came and met us up there, but I didn't get their picture. Angela took this picture of me with the twins. Zane was ready to get down. The twins are professional walkers now. They are on the verge of running now(help).

We all had fun and we enjoyed are yummy apple slushies.

PINK's Son?

No he's not Pink's son, but he looks like he could be with his sisters wild pink wig. Well John wasn't to thrilled to see a picture of his son with a pink wig. But the rest of us thought he looked too cute. Plus Zane must have liked it he kept putting it back on.

Our Little Chicken

I picked up a new costume the other day. I tried it on Zane earlier in the day and he didn't know what to think of it. Later that night I decided to try it on Zoë. She was so entertaining that I had to take pictures. Zoë with her cheesy grin.
She looks like she's trying to lay an egg in this pose.

Mitchell couldn't resist to pick up his cute little sister.

She was having trouble standing up in the costume. She kept falling over and rolling around. We couldn't stop laughing. But it didn't hurt her because of all the stuffing.

I've got three costumes for Zane and Zoe for Halloween. I'm not sure which ones they'll wear yet. I have the chicken, a lion and a piglet costume.

Where did September go?

I can not believe it is the first of October already. It just felt like September began. This time of year just gets so busy. Zane and Zoë are officially walkers. I tried to delay it as long as possible, but they figured it out. Zoë has even figured out that she needs to turn around to get down the step in our back hall. And now she is trying learn the computer. My nieces Mercedes and Meriah celebrated their 11th birthday on the 16th. (They were due Oct. 9th, my twins were due Oct.8th, they were hoping that they would have had the same birthday). Plus my baby sister Danielle celebrated her 24th birthday on the 29th.
We also got together with my friend Leslie and her girls Abby and Amelia. We met at Culver's for dinner and then went to see Disney on Ice in Nashville. This is a picture of Amelia loving on Zane. She couldn't keep her hands off of him. The kids really enjoyed the show. Zoë stayed with my sister Angela, because we didn't have enough room in the van. So how do you choose who goes and who stays. Zoë hates her rear facing car seat. She tries to pull her self up and screams. She is so close to that 20 lbs.
This last weekend my sister Tonya came to town and brought her boyfriend Matt. We only got to spend Friday night with them, but it was better than nothing. They came over for dinner and then we all went to the B.G. vs. Central game. Yes Central got slaughtered.
Saturday we went to a birthday party and the International festival. The kids as usual enjoyed the inflatables. I think we will go to the festival either earlier or later in the day next year. It was so crowded in the middle of the afternoon.
Work has been getting busier. The mail usually picks up this time of year. Plus with elections coming up there's usually lots of political mail. Zane and Zoë are into everything. I've been trying to baby proof. I love this time of year with family and holidays.

Community Block Party

Our Church put together a block party for the people in the neighborhood surrounding our church building. We had a good turn out and the kids seemed to have a blast. Cassidy said it was the greatest. There was an inflatable, water gun city, horse and buggy rides and lots of other fun activities. It was a great way to meet the people in our community.
