Looking Back at October (part 2)

We had a big night out that had nothing to do with Halloween, but was a huge hit regardless
 
 We took our princes and princesses to see Disney on Ice!!


We had great seats!!  We were only a few rows from the ice!

After a minute or two, I put the camera away and just focused on the kids enjoying the magic of Disney.  They were adorable and enjoyed every minute.  They have talked about this night ever since.  Izzie has now said that when she grows up, she wants to be a skater with Disney on Ice.


We also went over to Rod's Aunt Connie's house to decorate Halloween cookies!

The kids set up at the counter to get decorating!


Julia is ready to go!

Will mostly just wanted to play and wrestle with Connie's dog, Rascal. 


The quads' preschool class had a Halloween party and I got to go and help.

Thankful

Yesterday was Thanksgiving and we had a wonderful day!  My family came over and everyone enjoyed each other's company and way too much food.  Of course I am thankful for my lovely family, our health and well-being, but let's not forget the more over-looked items on my thankful list.

-- Hot coffee with lots of cream.

-- Internet shopping.

-- Friends who make me laugh during rough days.

-- Date night.

-- Yoga pants.

-- Curious George.

-- Good books.

-- Facebook.

-- Bad pop music and sing- and dance-alongs with the kids.

-- White chocolate peppermint M&Ms.

-- Christmas decorations.

-- Wine.

This is by no means a complete list, but these are a few of my favorite things.
So much to be thankful for!

Looking back at October (part 1)

During the month of October, I did not do a good job of keeping the blog up to date, but we did do a good job of getting out and enjoying the season.
 
Will's Cub Scout troop went to a pumpkin patch, so we took the little people along and enjoyed a family outing.
 The kids in front of the pumpkin patch.
(Paige's face cracks me up)

We went through a corn maze and learned that we are terrible at them.  It was a small-ish maze meant for kids and families and we were stuck in there for a very long time.  Of course, the kids had a great time :-)

 

 Each kid picked out a pumpkin.

Then we enjoyed the petting zoo.
Izzie and Paige petting some sheep.

Drew and Daddy petting the pony.


Then we went to our first trick or treat of the season at my in-law's campground.  
 The kids were the Scooby Gang.  And I must say they were the cutest Scooby Gang ever!
(Will- Fred, Drew- Shaggy, Izzie- Scooby, Paige- Velma, Julia- Daphne)

We walked around with their cousins Ana and Taylor and Taylor's fiance, Sam.
