Happy Halloween Everyone! We had a great Halloween. During the day we practiced trick or treating in the house and the kids got it down! In the evening we went down Main Street then through our neighborhood. The kids were adorable and had so much fun!
Since Halloween would be crazy we got together for a little photo shoot with The Wizard of Oz characters. Usually I try to wait to post the costume pics, but these are so cute I just couldn't resist.
There is nothing wicked about this witch!
Dorothy and The Tin Man are best friends!
Giving A.J. "the look" probably thinking "Don't touch my broom!"
The Cutest Munchkin from Munchkinland!
One Sweet Scarecrow
And A Notso Cowardly Lion
Rosalie looks worried that the rain will melt her.
We carved pumpkins today. Rosalie was apprehensive at first, but then saw what fun it was. Troy knew what he was getting into and dug right in.

Our Crazy Girl
Time to carve!
Not Sure About This
Troy made this at school. I love the pumpkin faces!
Today was fun from start to finish, but boy are we exhausted! We had Troy's friends Lilly (from school) and Lila over. I love that they both also have siblings Rosalie's age. After they left, Troy had school and when I picked him up we went straight to McDonald's with the outdoor playground. The weather was gorgeous! I keep hearing how NY has snow at the moment so I will try not to rub it in. :)

Spider Web Cookies!
I saw this craft online and immediately knew Troy would love it. It was so easy to make too, a couple of 2 liter soda bottles and I already had the silver spray paint for his Halloween costume.
We have had some big news lately. Rose, the little girl I babysit, has started potty training. Rosalie, being 18 months old, I never thought would be ready, but she has really taken to the potty. Today, she went 4 times on the potty! Troy, continues to love school and is beginning to read words. Tomorrow, we find out how he did on his state test. I was surprised they did it for Pre-K, but am very excited to hear how he did. Also, yesterday our website fell short of 500 views by only 1 view. I cannot believe our little website could get 499 views in one day, but then again with these adorable kids, who wouldn't want to look at them!
The Spider Hats They Made In School
We have been enjoying the cooler weather (although some days have been a bit too cool.) Today, we jumped in the leaves for the first time this season. The kids loved it.
Rosalie just had to wear Troy's Buzz snuggie
Troy playing Mario Kart for the first time.
He played the playstation for the first time also. He loved it, but his mean parents have already told him this was a very rare thing he could do.
Notice that Rosalie is holding Troy's camera like a controller.
Playing Transformers Outside
Rosalie is getting brave with the cat. She normally is terrified of animals.
He's so goofy!
Can you tell Daddy dressed her? My poor little Cheetah!
We decided to get out of the house for some fun today so we went to The Yankee Candle Co, Kidsburg, and a quick stop at the outlets. The kids and I had a great day!
Dancing In The Snowfall
Her kids meal came with these. She's not a fan!
Later she asked to wear them- she makes one cute little monster!
One year later, she still fits into the same pajama's! They actually do fit, they are just pulled up on her belly here.
Today, Troy had a field trip to Belmont Farms. They went on hayrides, pumpkin picking, saw farm animals, and got to play on the playground and in the hay house. The kids had a great time and can't wait to carve their pumpkins.
