My guys had a blast dressing up to go treating this year. There was 'Obi-wan' in the brown tunic and 'Luke Skywalker' in the black. 'Luke' was supposed to be Darth Vader, but at the last minute decided to ditch the mask and the red light-saber and be 'Luke'. :) I made the brown tunic for Big J...it was very simple to make and I only had to make a few adjustments. Though, I never did go back to finish the edges. Oh well...it makes it look like its seen it's fair share of battles!
At the beginning of October, we went to visit my parents. The water was still amazingly warm enough to swim without getting too chilled. The boys swam a couple of times and had a blast. In fact, when we were there just this past week for Thanksgiving, the boys thought that they were going to get to go swimming. :) Not quite! Even if the water had been warm enough, the air outside was not. Anyways, the boys in goggles crack me up! M-Man's expression makes me smile...and Big J would NOT look at the camera. Oh well. Still fun!
The boys got a fun package in the mail last week from their Grammy and Papa. In it were several books and stories about airplanes, including one about the Wright Brothers.(It's hard to believe that it hasn't been THAT long ago that airplanes were invented.) Included in the package was a fun airplane kit. The boys, with a little help from their daddy, put the planes together and spent the whole weekend flying them. Here they are posing for the camera. Don't ask me what Big J's facial expression is all about...I asked him to look at the camera and this is what he did. :)
We spent a morning and lunch with a friend from church a couple of weeks ago. We were at a nature preserve about 20 minutes from our house. It was a beautiful day. The boys had a blast playing at the playground and then we went on a short hike to an overlook. I was amazed the whole time that we were right in the middle of the Metroplex. :)
Yes, we are alive! And here's some proof...a new post and a fun new pic of the boys! :) I'm in the process of reinvention when it comes to the blog, which would explain the absence of posts for over a month. And, we have been busy with school and travel and life in general. I'm sure you can understand. Over the course of the weekend, I will back track and document our life over the past month or so. Also, hopefully, a new vision will be cast for the future! Check back soon!
