Here He Goes Again...

Cade: Mom, I wish [uncle] Matt didn't choose [aunt] Rachael first.

Me: Why?

Cade: Cuz I want her. I love her more than Matt.

Me: Cade?!

Cade: Well... I wish I was older so I could pick Rachael for my girlfriend before Matt did.

Me: Cade, you are silly.

Cade: (thinking for a minute.....) Well, then maybe I want Rachael to be my mom... cuz I kiss you and so if she was my mom, I could kiss her!

The 5 Cutest Kids on the Block

We had a great time this Halloween. We usually go somewhere but decided to stay home this year. I was actually relieved. Getting 5 kids ready to go anywhere is a production, but throw Halloween costume into the mix... not so fun. Anyway, our neighbors have this crazy, off the wall haunted house every year and really wanted us to stay so we could experience it. Let me tell you, you know those Halloween parties that you see on TV shows and movies, where they have a million people and tons of food consisting of cupcakes, caramel apples, chili and all the other Halloween food and candy imaginable? Well, that's what it was like. She (my neighbor Michelle) must have spent a small fortune. It was quite the night. SO glad we stayed home!

Now, on to the pictures!

Our SEVEN pumpkins (that we grew in our backyard!)

The little Sock Monkey (never can get enough of that face!)

The sad LGM that didn't want his picture taken

After he was told that he wouldn't be Trick-or-Treating if he didn't stand still and smile

I wanted to paint his face green, he wanted the plastic mask

Such an appropriate costume for Cade

There's the cute boy!

Drake in his school parade. He's the Jack Sparrow Skeleton (the best deal ever at $15 for such an elaborate costume)

He wouldn't wear the mask, boots or gloves. Too bad cuz this was a great costume. But, it was super hot that night.

This is the kicker! I loved this costume! My mom got all the pieces for this here and there. Kaleigh was excited that not one person at her school was the same thing!

These are all her ideas for poses

Rick thought I told her to do this. Yeah right!

She is my camera hog. How does she even know to do this?!?!?!

All of them together! Gotta love em!
