The irony is that I took all the pics--and will now have no proof I was there :-). These kids had a great time! We took the kids to BOOVILLE--the townhome complex haunted house, and then treated them all to hot chocolate after it was all over. This was a successfull Halloween! We celebrated the holiday 4 times over, making it a long-lasting blast! Good times.

OK--so living close to Brent and Michelle has been AWESOME!! I don't know that I would ever want these kids to go without their cousins again! It's so fun to open my door and watch the kiddos run to the Johnston's open door--just across the way. This is the life! Granted, it would be nice to be living in a fancy-shmancy neighborhood, but livin' by family makes this move COMPLETELY worth it! I know we'll have lots of fun "popper" memories of our time in law-school. We're livin' the high life! The one thing we've found, though, is that we tend to swap sicknesses. So--we do go a few days here and there in seclusion--making sure to NOT share the love :-). All in all---this is the best way to live. So let it be written...so let it be done---ALWAYS!!

Brent, Michelle and their kiddos joined us for a Saturday OUT on the town! Ratatouille was a cute movie--a little long for Cody, but a clean, fun flick. It's all about cooking---which Hunter LOVES! It was like a full-blown animated movie of IRON CHEF! :-)

Amber didn't realize we had arrived yet. We watched her climb all the way across the long monkey-bars--ALL BY HERSELF!! We were soooo proud of her! She is adventurous and willing to try everything. She has NO fear---which is scary for a parent, but I love her excitement for life.
Mariah has so many friends who play with her during recess time that it was tough to pull her away from the others, but we were able to snag a quick picture. Mariah is a social bug! She's fun to be with. Cody was thrilled to spend some time at the girl's school.
This fun little guy lights up my every day. He got an invitation to a b-day party, and he hasn't wanted to let go of it (it's STILL in his hand!) He loves writing his ABC's and numbers now. He's trying to figure out how to manage his temper, but he's VERY happy when Blue's Clues is on!

The kids are always excited to get out of the house and go on an adventure. They really enjoyed meeting up with their cousins and friends to see the hot air balloons get blown up. Unfortunately, because the weather was less than stellar, most of the balloons weren't blown up. Maybe we'll get to see HUNDREDS next year!
