Around the House

Just a few shots from around the house.  

Yes, this is how crazy our kitchen looks in the morning.  All I can do is laugh.

Every time we go to the library, Madelyn snatches up some super hero books.

The view they both showed me when they were done taking pictures.  (Don't judge the jammies…last night all of Sam's were wet in the wash at bedtime.  I made it work by cutting the feet out of 18 months and putting him in the sleep sack).

Cool shirt from our friend in Okinawa, Japan.

Madelyn loves to eat whole bell peppers.  After Sam cried pepper to me a bazillion times, I finally let him try too.  He surpassingly dug in (never eats peppers off his plate).

Still in jammies for afternoon snack (yogurt), and some favorite books make Sam a happy boy.

We celebrated Halloween with SuperWoman, a Pioneer Girl, and a little octopus.  Maddy's school celebrated with a  Halloween Parade on Thursday.  What a kick these kids get out of simply walking around the gym and waving to the parents.  (Would share more pictures but I don't think I should share pictures of other people's kids online, right?!).  

We Trick-Or-Treated with the neighborhood kids.  Sam's costume was decided last minute with a trip to the dress up box.  We recycled Madelyn's octopus costume from a few years back.  

I expected Sam to ride along in the stroller for just a few minutes and then head back home.  BUT, once he realized what was happening, he was all about going up to strangers and coming back with a  piece of candy.  I think this boy was more excited than anyone else.  On the way home, he managed to get the wrapper off a sucker and was as happy as could be.  Hysteria ensued when I had to take it away for bedtime.  You would have thought I cut off his foot.  

The girls had fun too (did I need to say that?).  They were thrilled to be with their friends and to analyze the loot at the end of the night.

Fall in Virginia can't be beat.  With school starting (yay!) the trees, the weather, life is good.  We've spent tons of time playing outside with the neighbors.  Made a trip to pick apples and one to the pumpkin patch with Madelyn's class.  We celebrated the girls' birthdays.  And mama took a trip to NYC for my cousin's wedding.  Here's a few pictures.
