Halloween 2014

We had a fun Halloween. We trick or treated here in the neighbor hood and I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of neighbors that participated. There were generally 5 to 6 houses per street giving out candy which is better than the one house per street or every other street in our last neighbor hood. We were able to walk the whole thing. As for the pictures below, the first two are our decorations,and of corse the last two of our cute kiddos all dressed up.  Enjoy. ;)

Evelyn's first tooth

Evelyn is eight months going on nine. She can crawl, pull up into a standing position, and now she has her first tooth. 

Here are my attempts at capturing a snap shot of said tooth. 

Fall festival at Church

Last night was our ward's annual fall festival.  The kids had lots of fun playing games and trick or treating door to door. Here is a view of my kid's Halloween costumes this year. 

Evelyn is a cute little Cabbage Patch Kid

Brenna is Elsa from Frozen, and Corby is Bumble Bee from Transformers. 

Conner is sporting his Optimus Prime outfit while rocking to tunes. 

Maren is a school girl, she decided to tone down with costumes this year. 

All the babies celebrating their first Halloween came together for a nice picture. 

Fun fun fun. 😊

Corby is 8!!!

Corby is a whopping 8 years old now. We started the day with a special McDonalds breakfast, his request. During lunch I brought in some special birthday cupcakes for him to share with his class mates. Later on he helped pick out a cake and some ice cream from publix, and then of course we sang happy birthday, sang Beulah Beulah while he looked for his presents. So much fun. Now we get to plan his baptism. 😊 I sure do love this little guy, although he is quickly becoming not so little any more. 

Some things to know about my little Corbsters..... He likes the color yellow, loves babies. He can be a little loud and rough, but is super generous and thoughtful. He likes to pick on his siblings, but will also defend them without question, even if it means he may get in trouble over it. He loves animals, his favorite show is Wild Krats. He is very competitive, and has a nose for sweets. It you have them, he will find them. 😉
