Halloween changes once the kid knows how it works. Jamison has been asking "is it Halloween yet?" every day for the last month and a half. Lo and behold, it finally came! Now he keeps asking about Christmas.
Walker's family has their traditional Phamily Phest for Halloween.
We were zookeepers... appropriate, I think.
Walker's aunt had a little story time with the kids.
Can you tell which kid was scared of her?
Quincy was very sweet and helped her feel better.
Thanks to Heidi for the pictures! We were too busy being zookeepers for real to take any...

She is always pulling funny faces and dominates any conversation.
She loves sugar, dolls, and being outside.
She goes to bed with a doll in one arm and a soccer ball in the other.
She is sweet and loves giving kisses for owies.
Loves loves loves anything with babies.
Vivienne thinks she is as old and big as Jamison and cries every time we drop him off for preschool.
It's a hard time to be little (as Jamison would say).

We are fortunate enough to have a family cabin here in Utah. Jamison's first visit was last summer, and he talked about it ALL winter. When we finally were able to go this year, he was shaking with excitement.
I have many, many fun memories of the cabin as a child. As an adult taking children, I've realized that it is more work for me. But seeing the enjoyment on Jamison and Vivienne's faces makes it all worth it.
Next time you see Jamison, ask him about the cabin. He can talk about it for a while! And Vivienne learned to say "river" and "rock" last time we were up. Can you guess what her favorite activity is?

For the last 8 years, my immediate family has celebrated my grandfather on the day he passed away (death day). Or more affectionately known as "Grandfather's D-Day Party."
We have a big dinner with all the foods that remind us of him. Fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, cheetos, canteloupe, watermelon, diet Dr. Pepper, Fresca, etc. (Yes, we usually have tummy aches the next day.) While we eat, we go around and share funny/sweet memories of Grandfather (or for the in-laws, memories of their own grandfathers). And it is not uncommon that we are all laughing so hard we can't talk for 5 minutes. After dinner we have the traditional screaming contest (usually won by my dad) followed by Grandfather's favorite movie, The Music Man.
I look forward to, and enjoy, this party more than most other holidays we celebrate. Yay for Grandfather! He was tough as a boot!

We left the kids with my parents. I think the kids like them better.
Many special thanks to the parents!

The next day both kids woke up sick.
The day after that, mommy woke up sick.
And 1 week later we are still recovering.
That's what I call a party.
