FUN Halloween !

We went up to the church for a little fun and games tonight. Robin Hood and Pretty Butterfly had fun throwing balls, fishing, and just looking at all the other kids all dressed up. Pictured is Ethan checking ducks for numbers to get candy. Ellie was so excited to get to wear makeup and glitter. She thoroughly enjoyed all the attention.
I did not get any good pics of Ethan head on. We had to catch him on the move... You know Robin hood ... he's so sly...

Ellie had fun seeing her girlfriend, Ava there. Wasn't she an adorable little pirate? Oh and I just noticed Ethan in the background below.
Mimi had fun picking up the kids from Ethan's school dress up party. You can sort of see Ethan's costume here. We were all ready for Ethan to be the famous Pecos Bill Cowboy for his School Storybook party and then Halloween... But after a serious change of Idenity... Ethan HAD to be Robin Hood. So I had to throw this costume together. But it was fun. Almost as cute as our Bull Rider last year.

This and That

We are staying very busy these days... Vicki and Craig left town Thursday and My parents flew in on Saturday. Its been so nice having family here for a while. "What cake?"

Robin Hood has been a hit in our house for the last week. So we had to make Ethan a Bow and Arrow and of course his own quiver.

Some fun in the sun...

Fire Station visit and some Aspens

I went with Ethan's class to visit the local Fire station. It was pretty fun. Ethan wasn't too sure about everything at first. I think he'though that they would put the sirens on or we would actually see a big fire. Ethan did brave it up enough to touch the Fire Fighter's uniform
And then he got even more brave and decided to join the other kids on a walk through the Fire truck. you can see him trying to pass up the other girl inside.
Last weekend we took a drive up to the mountains to see if we could get some good pics of the fall colors. But of course, our camera battery died.. so we had to just snap a few shots with our phone cameras. Oh well. These turned out... blurry but okay.You can see a bit of the yellow Aspens.
