Halloween 09

Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year. I don't know if it's because it's finally cool enough to be outside or if it's because it's the start of the holiday season or what exactly, but I love it. Actually what I think it is is that my kids love it. They love every detail of it. They love the decorations (not that I do much), but as soon as anyone starts to get any holiday stuff in front of their doors, my kids are on me about doing ours. They love picking out costumes. They love making treats for neighbors. They love picking out their pumpkins and decorating them. They mostly love the get-together and trick-or-treating on Halloween night with all of their cousins. In fact, we were going to go to a Halloween party going on at the park by our house for an hour or so before the family party this year, and our kids were actually begging us to skip that party so they could get to the cousins sooner.

Riggs had been to this pumkin patch before with his pre-school and was so excited to show us all around. He especially loved the maze and since it was so dark when we were there, he told us he peed in the maze since no one could see him. (lovely)

Riggs pre-school put on a little performance of Halloween songs for the parents. I love his teachers and he has such good friends in his class.

This is definitely one of my favorite pictures of my 3 boys. What I love about it is that you can see EXCITEMENT written all of their faces. Let the candy start rolling in!


Jackson finished up basketball and is onto baseball for now. He was one of the youngest ones on the team, but didn't seem to mind. I never got any decent pictures of him, and I was feeling very guilty about this, but then I remembered what I went through each game just trying to keep Crew off the court, and I don't feel so guilty any more. Sorry Jacks!
He improved so much this season, and to say Jeremy was a proud papa would be the understatement of the year. He's pretty much beaming when he watches any of his boys play sports. I think he'll have plenty of that over the next 15 years or so... :)
