It's a good thing I decided to decorate for Halloween this year because I forgot how much Nate loves Halloween. He's been wearing his Halloween shirts and socks for the last few days and sleeping with the Pottery Barn Halloween catalog. He even ditched his Thomas birthday party and wants a Halloween party now. That works well because I already bought all the goodie bag stuff and it's Halloween themed.
Dustin's parents were in town last week/weekend and we had fun seeing them. Dustin made his famous Conference breakfast, so it was good to have people to share the calories with. Ellie got to help Grandma bake some cookies, which is always a treat since I don't bake much. Grandma and Papa even brought the kids some pumpkins for us to decorate as part of our Halloween fun!
My mom sent us a great Halloween package with socks and a spooky CD plus gummy eyeballs. Those eyeballs were a life saver when I first started potty training Nate. He would do ANYTHING to eat them. And then he would chase Ellie around the house with his mouth open and full of smashed up eyeball while she screamed. I guess brothers are made to terrorize their sisters, no matter the age!
At first Sadie loved her socks and she couldn't stop touching them, but once she tried to crawl on the tile, the novelty was gone. She kept slipping and falling on her face, poor little girls. So just one more reason why we don't own socks! She does look cute though.
