Happy Halloween everyone! There are a couple of people in our house who are just a little excited to get started trick-or-treating tonight. Jake thought we could go out after breakfast, but when I told him we have to wait until after day care and supper, he seemed okay with that. Kelsey said their party at school is going to be "lame" because they have an assembly this afternoon, and it's going to cut into their party time. She's going sans parents tonight in Riverview with a group of friends, so that should be fun for her. I'll post pictures of the kids in their costumes in a future post.

We had our party here on Saturday and thought I'd put up a few pictures.

I Must Say...

I just can't stand how cute the kids in our family are.
Each and every one of them. Just look at them. Who could argue?

Here's What I Mean...

These didn't turn out in order, but can you see the concentration? Cake eating is very serious at our house.

We don't even mind being burned, as long as at the end of it, we can eat cake.
We don't stop for candles. They taste pretty good too, you know.

And then we're oh so tired afterwards. It's hard work.

Happy Birthday Jake!

I think it's safe to say that Jake has come a long way in the four years he's been around. Just think back to four years ago today where he was. At this time on that day he wasn't even born yet, but he was sure anxious to be. I wonder if at 10:02 tonight I'll start to have pains? I'll be at work at that time, but we'll see :)

I sent cupcakes (or, muffins as he calls them) to school to share with his friends today, and he was pretty excited about that. I'm sure all the kids will go home at lunch time covered in chocolate. Oh well. I'll take the blame for that one. I still have to ice his birthday cake that I won't be here to share with everyone (do I actually sound bitter?). He has to have a cake on his "real" birthday, and including the cupcakes, this will be round 3 of cake eating. Not that my kids have a problem with that. I don't know if any other kids out there can inhale cake like mine can. Don't get me wrong, I don't see that as a fault. I'm actually quite proud of that fact.

Thanks for all the gifts and phone calls over the past few days - someone has been very excited around here.

Jarret, Amy & Jake

It's the beginning of October Birthday Season in our family. Today is Amy, Jarret is on the 15th and Jake is the 18th. We have a November Season (Kenny, Grandma, Sharon, and Denise), and a February Season (Kelsey, Mom and Jenn). We have a short December Season (Ed and Emma), April (Jeffery), May (we all know who), July (Christopher), and August (Eddy).

On that note, HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMY!!!!!!!!!!! We all hope you had a great day at Marineland today!!!

I don't have much to say today. Well, I do, but it's all stuff that we all know about. My job situation, Kelsey being sick, Jake splitting his ear open, Emma, and...well, that's about it I guess.

The kids are both into the school routine, and now there are only 9 months left until summer holidays. I guess the next thing on the agenda besides the birthdays is Halloween. We'll have to get costumes organized before too long. I think we're going to have a Halloween party for Kenny's work friends, so that should be fun. I haven't dressed up in a costume in years. I have no idea what I'm going to dress up as, but I'm sure I'll figure something out.

That's about it for me for now.

I'll be back soon. I promise.
