Career Day

They don't allow the kids to wear their Halloween costumes to school.  They do, however, let them dress up as what they want to be when they grow up.  Of course this changes often, but right now Anders says he wants to be a cowboy.  So here he is all dressed up for Career Day.   Round 'em up Cowboy!

Church Halloween Party

I didn't take a camera to the ward Halloween Party.  Luckily, a sister in our ward, Sarah Christensen, was there to take pictures for us.  

I really hate shopping for Halloween Costumes.  I mean really really hate it.  This year we went to every place I could think of to buy costumes.  Anders's cousin, Patrick, gave him a Darth Vader costume and he was super happy with that.  Holden found a Robin Hood hat at one store and a pretend bow and arrow at another.  But Nicholas and Matthew just could not decide what they wanted to be.  When we were at a Halloween store, for the second time, they decided to use stuff from home.  Why could they not have decided that from the beginning? 

Holden in Robin Hood.
Anders is Darth Vader.

Matthew is a Mormon Missionary.

Nicholas is a hippie.

Joe sent me flowers today.  Well, he sent me a text with a picture he had taken of flowers. Good enough.

Frozen Yogurt

We are pretty good at our family prayers, but struggle a bit with our personal prayers.  So we made a chart and every time we remembered we put a sticker on the chart.  When we reached 50 stickers the reward was to go out for Frozen Yogurt.  WE DID IT!  Good for us.  Now onto a new chart and the goal of 75.

Apple Picking

Every year we go apple picking on Columbus Day.  This year we went with our friends the Hollands.  Lisa has a friend who lives on an apple orchard.  She let us come and pick as many apples as we wanted for free.  It was a beautiful fall day and we enjoyed every minute of it.
Me and my boys
 I make the boys take an individual picture while picking.  Here they are:



Bronson is the only Holland kid who wanted an individual shot.
A group shot of all the kids.

Happy Fall Everyone!

Autumn Leaves

Fall in New England means playing in the leaves, right? 
Anders is quite the poser
Can you see Holden's cute little face?
Matthew says thumbs up to playing in leaves.

Now, how do I get them to rack the leaves?

Matthew's Field Trip to the Connecticut Science Center

After Anders's field trip to the Pumpkin Patch, Matthew decided he needed a field trip as well.  
We invited another home school family to join us and off we went to the CT Science Center.

The Hurricane Machine

It's pretty loud.
 The Space Exhibit

Comfy chairs to watch a video on astroids.
And more fun stuff.

We definitely got our money out of that Membership.

Symphony Date with the Ackerman Girls

Gail invited Holden to go to the symphony with them tonight.  She got free tickets from the school were Aalyia attends.  It was Holden and a bunch of girls (Roci, Aalyia, and Kaleigh.)  Such a lady's man.   When I asked later what his favorite part of the outing was, he told me it was going to Cold Stone after.
