"Mo Candy"

"Mo Candy" has become Olivia's favorite new saying. Poor girl got her mom's sweet tooth. Halloween weekend has not helped this problem.

Saturday Ben and Trevor went to the cabin to help with fall clean up and Olivia and I had the day to ourselves. She had her first experience with the large leaf piles I was raking and she LOVED it. She just kept running through the piles squealing with delight. Even the neighbors stop to see what all the fuss was about.

She also wanted to spend some time with her pumpkins and then when we moved to the back yard she kept saying "bye bye pumpkin, bye bye pumpkin"

We thought we were going to need one of those chair swings for her but she would have nothing to do with that. She loves the big swing and just sit there saying "Mo Underdog, Mo Underdog"

Sunday night we carved pumpkins and just like every other year Al and Jess provided us with one BIG pumpkin! Ben could not reach the bottom to get the guts out and Trevor could barely lift it even once it was carved.

Thanks Al for another great Pumpkin!

Halloween finally arrived and the kids had a great time painting the little pumpkin.

Trick or Treat time!

This year Ben told us he wanted to be SpiderMan. This was the first year he really had an opinion about his costume. Olivia did not care so much and she was the cutest monkey I have ever seen!

We ran into Adam, Molly, Will and Addie on the street as they were heading to our house. Will was ready to fight some fires!

We went to more houses this year than ever before. Ben was really getting into the Trick or Treating and I am afraid next year he will not let us skip a single house!
