Whoopie! It's Halloween!!!


Sorry, I just couldn't resist!  Here is my big ol' boy as a whoopie cushion.  Truth be told, he is a rather gassy child and didn't NEED the costume, but I've been told it's a boy thing!  We just got back from Trick or Treating in the neighborhood.  Brian and I passed out candy for a bit, then went together to take the kids out for goodies.  We got an unexpected treat ourselves... Ricky, Clara, Matthew, and Ruby all decided to spend the night at Grandma Janice's house!  So I guess I should say,  "WHOOPIE" again!

Here are pictures of the rest of the gang.  Clara was a "poodle girl".   The outfit couldn't have been any more perfect for her.  She loves it, especially the glasses!  I know it's hard to tell she loves it since she is not smiling, but the fact that she is wearing it speaks volumes.  Those of you that know Clara know what I mean!
Here's Ruby in all her Rah Rah glory... her teacher has even better pictures of her at school.  I need to remember to get copies of those.  In case you are wondering, Clara refused to wear her costume to school.  (Surprise!)Here is Matthew as his current favorite super hero.  A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle!  He was crushed when a little old lady thought he was Franklin.  Poor kid!  We decided to Trick or Treat without the mask because he kept running into things in the house with it on, despite his protests that he could see, "just perfect".And this year, my worst nightmare came true.  My Ricky wanted to be Elvis.  I thought this was a GREAT idea, then he went to school, and came home one day and insisted on being this.Not really the image a mom wants to see when she thinks of her son.  Look at these blue eyes... do they really say psychopath?  I hope not!  Happy Halloween 2009 from our house to yours.
God is good.  All the time.
