Happy Halloween!

Wow! I can't believe what a slacker I am. I guess I'll just start by catching up a little. Everyone is doing great! The boys are getting so big, and so am I... I have about two weeks to go until our new little boy comes, but I'm hoping to get started a little sooner than that.
We had an awesome summer. We didn't really go on any big trips or anything, but we had a blast anyways. We did get to go to the Blackfoot fair with a couple of our friends. It was way fun to see the animals and go on a couple rides. The boys loved the little train! Seth also got this sticker from local news 8, and stuck it on his head. It got stuck in his hair and eye brows, and took a lot of soaking his head in water, and crying to get it off. It actually took a couple days before we got all the sticky stuff all off of him. In September we started doing preschool with a couple kids in the neighborhood, it's been super fun for Seth so far. Each of us moms take turns teaching for a month. We split up the ABC's, numbers, shapes and colors. I took September, I was pretty nervous about teaching 4 or 5 little kids, but it turned out to be really fun. Seth loves going to the other kids houses! It's pretty fun for him to get to play with kids his own age instead of his mom and brother. Here's a picture of the first day of school. Luke also got his first black eye the other day. He gets up so stinking early that it's still dark outside. Anyways, he got up and came into our room, tripped on some clothes and hit the corner of his eye on the bed frame. I didn't even know where he got hit until I got out of bed, and took him into the bathroom, and saw that blood was everywhere. He had a nasty bump and split his eye open. Poor kid!

Well, as for Halloween, we did a couple pretty fun things. We got to go to a pumpkin patch for pre-school, where they also had a little corn/hay maze for the kids. They LOVED it. We also got to pick out a pumpkin and take it home. The boys and I had a super fun time making Halloween decorations. Their favorite was our skeleton the we just drew and cut out of paper. Luke loved to run by it and say "Ooh, creepy".
The boys also loved painting and carving our pumpkins. I decided to let the boys paint theirs, and help me carve the big one. It was so fun! I think their favorite part was digging out the seeds from inside the pumpkin, just because it was so sick. All right, finally, Halloween was a blast. Seth wanted to be a bat, and Luke was a tiger. They had a ton of fun at the trunk or treat, and then we trick or treated to a few neighbors. It was all way fun! The older the boys get, the funner it is because they actually get what's going on, and want to do it. They were pretty bummed when we put our Halloween decorations away. Seth asked for days after Halloween if we could go trick or treating that night. He cracks me up!
