October 2010

Alright I told you in the last post I was going to start taking everyday photos of us. So here are a couple. Tanis really needed some help with timing on one of his saxophone pieces so Derek asked me to pull my flute out and help him. I am actually amazed at how much Tanis loved me practicing with him. Now he doesn't want to practice alone. It was fun helping him. One day I came downstairs and found Wyatt pushing Elora back and forth from the porch to the other end of the house in the stroller she loved it and they both were just giggling for ever while he did it. These 2 kids love being outside. Wish I had a backyard to let them run free sometimes. Lastly was our Halloween/Pumpkin carving celebration. We decided to wait till Tuesday before Halloween to carve the pumpkins and it still wasn't long enough to wait they were all pretty much gone by Friday which was our trunk or treat at church. But the kids had fun digging the goop out and picking their picture that Derek then carved (cause he is such a perfectionist can't have the kids do it makes me go crazy) but have to say they were amazing looking the 1st night. I love the picture of Elora sticking her hand in the pumpkin. Every year Derek begs me to dress up and I just say no this is about the kids and plus I usually never have time to put a costume together for me as I am working on the kids' till the last minute but this year I decided ok I could do something. We gave the kids a choice of Mario party characters and some others that I can't even remember a week later and of course the chose Mario party. I love to dress the kids in a theme and have them match which is getting hard when you have an 11 year who doesn't want to be a prince or in a theme so I tried really hard this year to find a theme he would like and I nailed it. So we have Mario, Toad, Princess Peach, Yoshi, Princess Daisy, and Luigi. The kids were so surprised to see me dress up and Ashley even said it was the best Halloween because I dressed up. That made me feel pretty good as she and I are always butting heads. We had a lot of fun and the kids got so much candy it didn't even fit in my huge Tupperware bowl that I always put it in. I have enjoyed this last month and the simple things of my kids.

I didn't know you even played the flute. What a fun thing to do with one of your kids. That is time well spent. Looks like you had a good halloween. Miss you.
