Halloween 2009

This Halloween turned out great. Two days before it rained and snowed and I thought it was going to be awful. But by Saturday morning the snow had melted and it had dried right up. Whitney was Sleeping Beauty this year, (thanks to my very talented friend Angie for lending us the costume) and Joshua was Max from Where the Wild Things Are (we have yet to see the movie). And I feel like I have to state for the record that Joshua wanted to be Max long before the movie came out and became trendy :) It was pretty easy to sew and it turned out great! A squirrel got at our jack-o-lantern. Whitney was devistated when it happened. Steve and I thought the squirrel was in the Halloween spirit and made the pumpkin more "Halloween-y."

Joshua's Birthday

Joshua's now 7 years old (I can't believe it) and we had a great party at NDSU's bowling alley. It's great not having to come up with creative games and crafts to keep the kids busy for an hour and a half. Joshua's still "adjusting" to the number 7. He's a man who doesn't like change. He could be 6 forever in his mind. I can't wait until he turns the big 3-0 or 4-0 or 5-0. All those hallmark years that put the average person into an anxiety attack :)

Whitney meets Soccer

We decided to put Whitney into soccer this fall. To help tame her "dramatic" side. The side that always cries when things don't go her way, or if someone someone cuts in front of her. She's no super-star soccer player, but she tries really hard and she doesn't cry every time she falls down. When you watch the video, she's number 30. And she's super cute! (And by the way, Aunt Heather came to visit this month, and you can hear her on the video :)
