Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween!!! We had a great time. We did our usual trick or treat at Dave's office right after school where everyone has candy at their desks and then there are some fun activities for the kids. We then made our rounds in the neighborhood with a ton of neighborhood friends. It was such a fun time for the kids to be with a group. After all the candy gathering (we have WAY TOO MUCH) we went down the street where our neighbor friend Jen was hosting everyone to gather in the front yard to watch "The Nightmare before Christmas". Everyone sat on blankets on the ground and Jen and her husband supplied popcorn and drinks. FUN! We really enjoyed it. We left a little earlier than some because we have soccer games tomorrow and needed to get some rest. :)

Check out this man or thing or well I am not sure what he is, but he was having a fun time dancing to "Thriller" with all the kids.

Our big group of Trick-or-Treaters. This was so much fun and the best time we have had on Halloween.

Outside Dave's office before our fun time there.

Happy Birthday to Dave!!! and to Ashley!!!

I had meant to post this yesterday to wish Dave a Happy 40th birthday! For just 2 days we are the same age :). He did have a busy day at work and the kids had soccer practice so we picked up dinner from La Hacienda. He had a nice surprise at work - his mom sent him a beautiful plant along with some fun "over the hill" balloons and he went to lunch with some of his friends from work.
Also want to wish Ashley Piltz a happy 5th birthday! What a sweetheart she is!!! Back in the spring Ashley received a gift certificate from Relay for Life's local chapter to have a fun time at Sweet N Sassy along with a ride in the pink limo and she could bring some friends along. She and Wendy decided to wait and use it on her birthday, plus Ashley wanted her hair to be a little longer - it is looking AWESOME by the way! So on Monday she was picked up from her house in the pink limo and taken to get her fun make over :). She was so sweet and invited Kelsey to be one of her guests. Landry got to go for pizza and cake at Ashley's house along with the other boys she invited. The girls had such a fun time!!! Oh and be on the look out because Relay for Life will be taking place in May 2009, I will be sending out an email asking for help - either to join Team Ashley and walk with us (we had such a great time at the 2008 Relay and I would hate for you to miss out on all the fun!!) or if you could make a donation to help fight cancer that would be awesome!

Kindergarten goes to the Pumpkin Patch

Today was Landry's first school field trip and his first time to ride on a school bus. It was a super fun day. We went to the Big Orange Pumpkin farm. The kids got to feed some animals, pick out a pumpkin (I got one too), go on a hay ride, and have a picnic lunch before heading back to school. Landry loved it and he was very good the entire time. You can see in one of the pictures there was a very hungry goat there. The goat took Landry's feed cup right out of his hands and finished it off. The weather was great and no one got hurt and there were no melt downs. We got back to the school at 12 pm (fast trip) and Landry came home with me once we got back. Here are some photos from the day.
