The Pac-Man Family

So finally I'm getting these up...our Halloween costumes this year! You like? In this picture Blinky and Inky are after Pac-man big time! :)

Pac-Man's favorite...the cherries!

Pac-Man is about to eat Inky in this picture! RUN Inky!

Our ward did a blanket-to-blanket trick-or-treating activity at the park right by our house for our Halloween activity this year! The kids had a great time and the weather was awesome! Our friend, Bro. Wasson, was kinda freaky as a clown man, but he gave out good handfuls of candy to all kids who dared go up to him! :)

This here is lil' Porter who lives around the block from us, my visiting teacher's little man! I got some great shots of him and had to post at least one (I hope that's ok, Kaylynn?) You have to click on this one and see a larger view--he's so cute!

The Birth of Pac-Man

Dave may have to jump in and give some details here, but he did such a great job with our costumes! And I must say he had a lot of fun too!

Joey woke up and decided he wanted to help out Daddy.

Some More Joe

Joey's huge toothy grin gets everyone!

This kid has always got something in his mouth, and usually sticking out! I'm guessing this will change when he no longer needs his hands to get around. (His eyes are still making up their mind as to color. We're guessing they will be hazel like Abbies, and their color will just depend on the day.)

This is what JOEY thinks of The Little Mermaid! :)

Look at this face!! That is skill! :)

This little man has got rhythm coming out his ears! His knees bounce and his little head bobs when even the slightest diddy is in ear shot! In fact today when I was checking out at Target, he was dancing as he sat in the cart and I was trying to figure out what music he was hearing...there was NONE playing anywhere. And then I realized it was the beeping of the checkout scanner!! Like I said, music running through every ounce of this guys body!

Now Abby, she LOVES music as well-- singing and dancing in her silly way. But if she could choose either a huge chocolate pie or markers to color and draw with, she'd choose markers in an instant! She is very smart and enjoys drawing so much! One of these times, I'll post some of her drawings (with her descriptions of course!). Something to look forward to!

Purple Prizes

After going potty many many times in the toilet and keeping her undies dry many times as well, Abby earned her purple chair! YAY! I found this for a few bucks at a used store and scrubbed it down! I was super excited to award it to our Abby. It's her new reading spot!

Crawl Baby Crawl

So this actually was filmed on Sept. Joey was 7 months & 1 week.
Can you see the pen marks all over his face? Joey found a pen in my bag and I didn't know...sneaky little guy!

This really is the first time Joey crawled. I was so excited to catch it on film! I got the camera out to take a picture of him getting up on his knees, and then WHAM-O, he was crawling! It's over a minute long, so don't feel any pressure to watch the whole thing...unless you are a grandma, and then you have to! :)

Halloweeny Abigail

So Abby has 1 Halloween outfit that she wore last year and still fit into this year...she would wear it every day in October if I would let her. She would also probably drink out of this cup every meal if I let her too. I think the face on it looks like it's her face in this picture...funny!
Hilarious! [Side note: Can you see what a lovely calic (sp?) does to the front of her hair? It make a big chunk of her bangs go the opposite way of the rest of her natural hair flow. And most of the time it won't lay flat worth beans. Poor kiddo! She's going to HATE that in junior high school.]

I love this smile!

OktoberFest Beer Free

We had a great time dancing to some polka/country/jazz all combined music mix!

I think more people were watching us than the performers. I don't blame them...look at this kid!

Joey LOVES to dance! He does it involuntarily whenever there is music playing. He's a little tired here though.
