Walter's cousin Steven got married a couple weeks ago to Jordyn. (They are good friends of Richard and Audra's), and we had a great time at the wedding. Jackie made the cakes, and Will married them. The kids had fun  (though Caroline missed a good chunk when she fell asleep). Max played with the boy cousins, though they didn't waste any time before fighting. *Sigh* It was a really nice night.

This was SOO funny! They were both on the phone. It was hilarious.

Boys' Day/ Girls' Day

At the beginning on November, Walter's Dad took all the boys to the OSU football game. This was their second time going, and they all had a great time.

The girls decided we weren't just going to sit around, so we had our own fun day. We did some shopping and had a craft night. We all needed dresses for an upcoming wedding, and we spent time planning our craft projects in Hobby Lobby. 

I'm not sure who had more fun - the boys or the girls- but I think we all had a great day!

Big girl hair cut

Caroline has had her hair cut once. It was getting long, and kind of scraggly, so I decided to have Aunt Meme cut it short, and it looks so cute. She looks so old! Caroline was pretending like she didn't want it cut (actually, she said she just wanted one chunk cut, ha!). My pretty girl is getting so big.

Halloween Activity

Grandma Karla gave the kids these Halloween sticker activities. Each kid got a paper and sticker set - they both used every single stinker they had. It was a fun little activity that they both really, really enjoyed.

Happy Halloween!

Halloween was on a Saturday this year. I actually had to work all morning - our office was hosting a tailgate at the Pitt State game, where we hand out pie as an employer appreciation event. We decided to dress up since it was Halloween. We had too much fun!

After the game, I went home and we got the kids ready for trick-or-treating! We always start the night at the church trunk-or-treat, where church members line up their cars and hand out treats from their trunks. There are also some inflatables for the kids to play on.

After the church, we headed back home to trick-or-treat in our neighborhood. Last year, we did our neighborhood last, but the kids were cranky, so we only made it to a few.  Then a few neighbors later came over to drop some goodies off or stopped us and said they missed us, so we decided to start here this time. It was really fun to visit with all our neighbors! Mom and Dad even came with us, so that was really fun too!

We hit one other smaller neighborhood and then decided we had enough. We stopped at a friend's house and had dinner at Chili's, where the kids got to eat free! Nice! Once we got home, we surveyed the loot - the kids really did well, and I have been enjoying their candy ever since.

Safe Trick-or-Treat

Wednesday before Halloween, PSU hosted a safe trick-or-treat, so we got the kids dressed up and off we went! It's usually held in the ballroom, which was way too crowded, so I didn't want to go anymore. This year, they moved it to the gym, so we decided to try it again.

My Little Red Riding Hood and the Big, Bad Wolf. Love these costumes!!

The gym was much bigger, but I don't think they really utilized the space well. It was still pretty crowded, but the kids had fun playing all the games, and getting candy. They even had a fun photo booth.
