Just had to show off my flowers I received from Russ and Anna!
We enjoyed the beauty and brightness they brought to our home for two weeks!
Yay! Happy Halloween! Carter: bumble bee, Ben: pirate skeleton, Anna: bat girl.
Great FUN...until the flu set in the next day!

It was a GREAT...thumb-sucking day!
Saturday evening we gave Ben his snowboard!! He's been waiting for it for forever it seems!

Funny Story of the week:
*Sigh* BOYS! If you have a boy...well...you should know EXACTLY what such a statement means...

My son has enlightened me...
*sigh...once again...* BOYS!
Just tryin to stick with the brightly packaged plastic squirt guns now...thank you very much!
