Sam and Ella having a snack and watching Mike build one of the gates.
The kids are very lucky this year because they will get to wear their Halloween costumes three times. Malcolm, One of Sam's friends, has a Halloween party last Friday night and this week we have a Ward trunk or treat party on Thursday night and then Halloween on Friday night. Sam is Thomas the Tank Engine this year, Ella a Pixie Fairy and Owen is a candy corn. For the Australian's reading this, candy corns are a lolly (candy) that they only have at Halloween. I've including a pic so you know what the real thing looks like. Owen made a very cute candy corn, but would not stay still long enough for me to get a decent shot!
We are so happy with our grass green back yard. A big improvement over the ant hill that was there when we first moved in!
A picture of everyone eating pizza at the party. They all got to add their own toppings. Sam likes his with cheese and poppy seeds!
A couple of additional random shots. About once a week I swap kids with a friend who lives in close by. John is Sam's age and Josh is a few months older than Owen. It's great for everyone. The kids get to play and the Mum's get to do what ever they need to with out kids for a couple of hours! Here they are eating waffles at our place last Thursday.
Sam, Ella and Chris eating popcorn balls as a treat for family home evening tonight. Ella managed to knock the popcorn machine over and then spill the first batch of popcorn all over the floor. Thankfully the second back made it!
