This year for Halloween we invited Papa and Grammy to come and spend the weekend with us. On Halloween night we had a bon-fire at our house after we went trick-or-treating. The Kemper family, Aunt Sarah and Uncle Troy came over too! Sarah and Troy handed out candy at our house for us while we went trick-or treating. (Thanks again Troy and Sarah!) The kids all had a blast trick-or-treating. Elijah really got the hang of it this year and wasn't shy at all. He and his best buddy Ben were so excited and were running from house to house. Adrie did well too! She and Claire had a great time together. Ezra and Joscie mostly rode in the wagon and watched. Ezra went up to a few houses. They all got tons of candy. Afterwards we all went back to our house and Papa started a fire for us. We had hot dogs, campfire pizza, marshmallows, pudgy pies, pumpkin pie, apple cider and lots of other good food. We had a blast!
Oh yeah...today also was a very special day...Elijah no longer has to wear his brace full-time! He only needs to wear it when he is doing something physical. He got his cast off 4 weeks ago. The Doctor really wanted him to be back in a cast for a few more weeks, but his skin on his arm was in such bad shape he was afraid to do so. He put Elijah in a brace full time, but told him he had to be really careful for a few more weeks. He had a brace on his arm for the last 4 weeks, but now his arm is mostly all better! Now we just have to do some therapy to get it stronger and get his movement in his wrist and hand back to normal. Elijah is so excited to have his arm back to normal. It was a long summer/fall for the little guy. Now...no more broken bones, PLEASE!

Ezra turned 18 months on the 5 of this month. Here are Ezra's 18 month photos...they didn't turn out great, but he did pretty well. We had to have his picture taken with his "aahhh" (his special blanket). He demanded to have it. We at least got a couple without it :)

Last night we celebrated Whitney's birthday. She turned 21! We also celebrated Justin coming back from Iraq safe and sound. My sister Sarah came over and watched the kids so I could celebrate with Whitney. Will was at work. Whitney had a limo and all. I decided to drive on my own though just in case I had to leave earlier then they all planned to. We started off by going to Macaroni Grill (me and Whitney's favorite), then to Dave and Buster's. I had to leave after that, but they continued to celebrate else where. It was a great time...and awesome food! It was so nice to have a break from the kids and see the family and friends. Thanks so much Sarah for driving all the way up here to watch the kids for me, Love ya! Also....Happy Birthday Whitney, we love you! And....WELCOME BACK JUSTIN, we missed you so much!

Tonight we decided to surprize the kids and have a campfire in our back yard.. We had a loads of fun. We roasted marshmallows and cooked our hot dogs over the fire. Ezra was very curious about the fire and we really had to watch him because he wanted to touch it so bad! So, he ended up going to bed a little early so we could enjoy the rest of our night with out having to watch his every move. The kids have been asking to do this again almost every night...I guess it was a big hit! We had fun taking our pictures in the dark :)

Adrie is starting to be such a little helper. Today after breakfast she helped me dust mop. And was happy to help! I'm sure these days are going to go by to quickly and I bet she won't always be so eager to help. So, I will just have to enjoy them while they last :) Doesn't she look like a little Cinderella here?

Today we went to the pumpkin festival. We have gone every year since they have started it (3 years now). We played games, took a hayride, and picked out pumpkins. It was so much fun. Nanny and Poppy came with us this year. The kids had a blast! After the pumpkin festival fun we came home and ate yummy food Nanny had brought for us and then I spent the rest of the night on the computer designing the web site for Jack (poppy) and their business. This is my first time doing this so we are slowly getting it finished. Stay tuned for the future website post :) We had a great day!
