I feel like I am finally emerging from under some sort of rock. We have been busy around here since the end of fall break. School has been keeping me busy. We had our fall carnival last night. I wish I had some pictures of the kids. I had to work the whole thing and of course the camera was the furthest thing from my mind. I can say that the boys had a blast. I am so happy that now Connor is old enough to stay the whole time and have lots of fun. The past two years he had to leave early because he would run away and we were so afraid of losing him! (He is FAST!) Now he knows his boundaries (he only ran away once...we quickly found him at the basketball area... phew) and has enough stamina to last the whole night. Several times I caught him chasing girls around... he was being a Tyrannosaurus Rex... his favorite dinosaur! I can only imagine what stories I am going to hear on Monday, lol!
I can't believe Halloween is just around the corner! We have our pumpkins, costumes, decorations in and out of the house, plenty of candy to hand out and our best "Trick or Treat" voices ready to go. I am not a fan of having Halloween on a Monday, but, oh well, what can you do? Daryle loves Halloween. Today he went out and bought a fog machine to go with his strobe light he got last year. He also bought a tarp to enclose our porch so that he and Travis can sit behind it and scare people as they hand out candy. He is already downloading "scary" music to go with it. Tomorrow we will carve our pumpkins and finish the outside decorating. As for me, I am just content sitting outside and handing out candy. I prefer to relax a bit.
I haven't taken many pictures but I did come across these that I forgot about. Here are my boys, all snugly. You can see how Travis and Connor really love Rock. I think the feeling is mutual though!
A few weeks ago Daryle brought home these Darth Vader suckers from work for the boys. I had put them up high. Out of sight, out of mind, right? Well, last weekend Connor found his. I think it is as big as his own head!
As he was munching, licking and getting sticky and black all over he started making his dinosaur impersonations. Look at that claw! lol
A little more sugar please?? Oh. My. Gosh. This kid cracks me up! You should hear the growl and snarls that goes with this look.
So, this year Connor is going to be a dinosaur for Halloween. I can't wait to see it all put together! Travis wants to be a zombie. So much for the cute little kid costumes. I guess 8 year old boys are ready for some blood and guts. Daryle is going to be a zombie with him. He is in charge of their costumes. I can't wait to see what they come up with, Daryle is pretty clever with costumes so they should turn out pretty good. Hopefully this will make for some great pictures! Stay tuned..... unless of course, I get eaten up by that dinosaur...
