Trick or Treat 2017


You know what I hate?
When the day before Halloween its 60 with sunshine
and when it comes time to trick or treat
it's 40 with 100% chance of rain  :(((
If you want to risk taking your camera 
outside for pictures be ready for lots of blurry ones.
BOO!




We have Harley Quinn who headed off to a teen party.
An eskimo girl, Rainbow Brite, Batman, A crazy cat lady, 
and a black kitty cat.
Gabriella wanted to be a superhero
like her big brother so she wore 
a super girl dress and a spiderman hoodie.



"MOM LOOK! THEY GAVE FULL SIZE CANDY BARS!"
-screamed by every one of our children throughout the evening.

Hoping for better weather next year.

Back To School They Go

Officially a 10th grader.

She is doing well in her classes so far and 
enjoying her school year. 
She is super excited that football season
has started.
Go Vikings!
These cuties!!!


1st, 3rd, and 5th! 
They are so big it makes me sad.
The big girls are now in the same school building and 
pick up the MiKayla everyday after school.

Each girl has their bestie in the same classroom.
They were thrilled.
MiKayla's teacher has already emailed me
letting me know what a rock-star student 
and what every teacher dreams of.
This big boy tags along every morning
 for school drop off and he LOVES it!
Per our usual first day of school tradition we had icecream.


So far so good.
Praying the school year continues
without any hiccups.

End of Summer Visitors-Part 3-The Finally










And that's it!
That was a lot of pictures for a visit
that lasted from monday-thursday.
Pittsburgh trips included:
*the Zoo
*a picnic at the park
*Authentic French Bakery
*a walk around one of our very
old cemeteries
*the spray park
*the dancing waterfalls on the river walk
and finally a trip to the Point
which is where the three rivers meet.
It's right in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh
and one of our favorite places.

It was a jam packed fun visit.
Gabriella kept us extra busy and a little stressed.
All of the kids had a great time with their cousins.
I still can't believe Gramma and Sarah made the drive
and how fast the visit went.
I'm sure they are already planning their next drive up ;-))))
