Halloween fun

 We started our day with a visit to the Trick or Treat fun at the Rec Center.
They had pumpkins to decorate.  Face painting, a bounce house, popcorn, hot chocolate, apple cider, a fire truck and hay rides.

 While we were out trick or treating we stopped by Grandma's house.
Instead of candy for the kids, she told them they get to come over for a sleep over.

Baby Olive

 Baby Olive came to play for a few hours.  
She took a nap for most of the time.  She was mildly okay with Jo holding her.
Josey loves her little baby cousins.

 He loves wearing Ben's helmet.

Matt's Halloween costume

He dressed up like this dentist at work.

Picking out Halloween costumes

 We have gotten way low key on Halloween costumes.
It is pretty much, pick something out of the dress up box or Halloween box.
Briggs picked out an army guy.

 Josey was convinced she was going to be a jaguar...again.

 He definitely didn't want to be a cow.
 She picked a huntress.

 Oops we've changed our mind already to tinkerbell.
 Davy Crockett...he's going to get lots of use.

 He is an army daddy.

Love this weather

We finished our day with a fire.  We had hot dogs and smores.
 We are still walking the kids to school in the morning and picking them up in the afternoon.

Hair cuts

 Josey finally pushed me over the edge and I made them appts to get their hair cut.
Lucy decided she wanted hers cut short too...then when it came time for her turn decided she didn't want it as short as Josey's.

 After getting hair cuts, we got slushies and headed to the park.
 Josey couldn't hang.

Well it was fun!

 While I was making dinner, Matt took the kids who were begging to jump on the trampoline with him, out to jump.
 All was fun and giggly...
 until Josey jumped right into Matt's (who wasn't even jumping) knee.

Fall Break 2015- Oct 10-15

 The kids were AMAZING in the car.  We have awesome car riders!
 They are great car nappers as well.
 They also LOVE the beach as much as their mom and dad.

 They love the pool too.

 I don't think there was a night that we had a problem getting them to go to sleep.
A few nights Ben asked to go to bed.

 It turned HOT so fast.  By them time we made our way to our first ride, it had warmed up significantly.  We waited in line for the Jungle Cruise and it was really hot.  That morning for breakfast I had given all the kids water and Ben hadn't drank is, unbeknownst to his parents.  So the heat mixed with no water in his system, made him light headed and sick.  So just as we were getting ready to get on the ride, he informed me he was going to puke.  I asked the guy working the ride where we should go and he quickly got us to the trash can.  Bonus: they get you a cold water if you get sick!

 Little kids enjoying frozen lemonade while the big people rode thunder mountain.

 Miss Lucy was SO tired.  She was such a trooper and kept on going.  That is until we stopped for dinner and I jokingly said to her and Ben that they could lay their heads down if they wanted to take a nap. She took me serious and did just that. 

 A booth nearby opened up so we moved her over to a more comfy sleeping spot.
 Boys sleeping.

 Lucy LOVED watching the fireworks while the big kids rode space mountain.

We had a blast at Disney and a fabulous time in Florida.  See you next year Gulf Coast!  The kids are excited for next year.
