Our neighbors Rod and Cathleen gave us 4 tickets to see the ISU/Weber game today. We've been planning our day for several weeks now. The kids were so excited when we told them! For those of you who know me, you know I LOATHE football, actually, I loathe just about every sport that is played with a ball, but I went along with it anyway. The look on Jonathan's face when we pulled out those tickets made it worth it. We got a couple of cute photos of the kids going wild when ISU scored and one of Jonathan waiving his arms wildly while they were trying to score. He was so funny to wach. It looks like we've got a little FB buff on our hands!

Jonathan had a great idea the night we were carving pumpkins. The night after Halloween he wanted to smash them up. He couldn't decide how at first. He thought maybe throwing it, and then he thought cutting it up but in the end he used a hammer. In one of those pictures Ernie has one of his fingers holding it while Jonathan smashed the hammer down. He's pretty lucky it didn't get squished. Sabrina and daddy cut hers up with a freaking huge knife that made me extremely nervous. The knife is almost bigger than she is! I threw my pumpkin down on the ground and broke it. Poor thing. Ernie used the knife again and with one swoop split his in half right down the middle of the eye he carved. Gives new meaning to "Smashing Pumpkins!"
Yesterday Jonathan and Sabrina were so helpful. They cleaned their bedroom and helped put away all their toys in the living room. Then we went to run a couple of errands and they were so good doing that too! So, we decided that we were going to play with silly string. I don't think Sabrina really enjoyed it too much because Jonathan had a Spider man web shooter and she thought they were real spider webs. We explained that it was just silly string. Jonathan went CRAZY! He thought it was the best ever and got everyone and everything. So much fun!

Yesterday Jonathan had his kindergarten Halloween party and Ernie and I went to school to help out. It was so much fun! We helped kids make a spooky box and a ghost. Jonathan made a book and read it to his teacher, a spider hat and his snack was goblin lips made out of caramel, marshmallows, apples. He was a fearsome pirate but didn't master the Aaaarrrrgggghhh! Next year maybe. After their snack, they went on a costume parade to show all the school kids their costumes and then to the Library for reading time. After school was over we went to pick Sabrina up from kindergarten. Pictures from that party will come later. We went home, ate lunch, took a small nap and then got ready for Trick or Treat the Old Town Streets. So much fun. The kids got soooooo much candy! The next couple of weeks are going to be filled with SUGAR! After that we stopped off at our friends house for Hannah's Birthday party. She turned 1 and it was so exciting for her. She was dressed as a little pumpkin. Her mommie and daddy did such a great job. They had a ring toss with witches hats, pop bottle bowling, and pin the nose on the pumpkin. Then the kids' favorite was making a spider web. They got different colors of yarn and wove it in and over each kid making a spider web. A couple of girls got really excited and tangled themselves up really good. So much fun!
