We have been getting ready for Halloween in the desert. Anna was sick last week with a bad virus- awful cough and constant fever. We snuggled for 3 days straight and she was finally better! Since she was sick, the Weavers offered to take Presley and David to the Oktoberfest dinner and pumpkin painting event. The kids had a great time, and I think the Weavers enjoyed driving the minivan, too!
Spider-Man and Belle were hungry!
They even painted a pumpkin for Anna.
Bulldog and Nana came over for a visit after their reunion in Las Vegas. We had a really nice time catching up with them. It was so great to see the kids interacting and playing with them. We are so grateful for the time we got to spend with them!
Enjoying G and D's Halloween box of prizes!
Presley and Nana did a lot of arts and crafts. They made placemats for dinner and lots of beautiful artwork.
Nana and Bulldog really enjoyed watching the kids play in the background. David had all his construction trucks out there and went to town.
Presley had Red Ribbon Week this week and dressed up in a new theme every day. The first day was what you wanted to be when you grew up. She picked a veterinarian.
Snuggling on the couch after school while watching a show with Nana and Bulldog.
Anna got a new Elsa doll to sleep with so we decided it was a good time to trade babu for Elsa. She did pretty well the first night, the second night she was missing babu as she went to bed. I'm really proud of her, though. By the third night, she is sleeping great! This milestone really hit me- she is no longer a baby without her babu :(
Some pics with Nana and Bulldog before they left.
David loved being told Bulldog is 1, Big D is 2, Cameron is 3 and he is 4. He kept joking saying he was 3 instead of 4. It was really sweet seeing him really interact with Bulldog and Nana now that he's older.
Eating one of the halloween cupcakes Bulldog bought them.
David had his Halloween party and parade at school today since he doesn't go to school on Fridays. He was so cute walking in the parade with his friends.
He loved cleaning out the pumpkins.
And was the last kid working on it...
Heading home with all his loot...
We went to a trunk or treat tonight and enjoyed getting candy. It was a good trial run for the kids to remember to speak up and say thank you.
And we carved our pumpkin tonight with Cameron.
It turned out great! Looking forward to tomorrow!
