I just realized I never published this post and it was sitting as a draft. Oops. And now I'm too lazy to even comment on any of it. So I will give you the abbreviated version. Halloween was a blast this year. I felt like I was re-living my childhood trick or treating with the kids. It was fantastic! Ryan was spiderman and he stopped at every house to show them his muscles. He was so much fun. He told me that someday he will be big enough to go trick or treating by himself...But that I shouldn't worry because he will be there to hold my hand and take me from house to house because if he gets bigger then I will get littler. (what?) It was cute nonetheless :)
Macey was a fairy princess thing and she was so stinking cute. We just had a great time.
We also had a Halloween party Saturday night which was so much fun. Too much fun. It was complete with costumes, an overly decorated house and a flaming pumpkin. What's not to enjoy?
Lastly, we went over to our friends' house to participate in the 'spook' house they set up. I have to admit that it was very well done. But I felt really bad for all of the little toddlers who screamed and cried because they were so scared...Macey included. I told Ryan that if anyone tried to scare him that he could just punch them in the face. So he walked up showed his big muscles and was ready to punch! But then it was just Scott so he ended up laughing at 'silly daddy'.
All in all, Halloween was just too much fun this year. I wish Ihad the desire to comment on each photo...but I don't. And I haven't mastered the art of blogger so all of my photos are out of order. So here you have all of the various Halloween events we attended! At least I got the Halloween pictures up (and the decorations down) before Thanksgiving :)

Yes, it really has been that long

Sometimes I find myself wishing time away. Waiting for the next milestone such as, No More Diapers or All Day Kindergarten. But then I have moments like these and I wish I could just bottle up my kids and keep them babies forever. Because I'm sure going to miss this.

Kyle is the happiest baby ever. He is perfect. I call him my Ray of Sunshine because holding him literally makes me happier. I don't know what I would do without this little guy :)

Ryan showing Aunt Stephanie where to go next at the zoo. Even though he was reading it upside down he still managed to lead us along!

I love my sassy girl.

And my CRAZY girl.

And my forever pantless boy, thanks to potty training.

Cliff jumping at Sauble Falls

love him.

She's not sure what she thinks about Cole blowing out her candles. Well someone had to do it, we waited about 2 minutes while she just sat there staring!

Macey thinks she looks like a pirate when she makes this face.

But I think she looks like an angel when she makes this face!

This was my BIG catch at Chesley Lake. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. I must've caught the smallest bass in the lake... a minnow.

Here Ryan is expressing his utter disappointment. He caught 22 fish so we were able to have a fish fry. He told me I should practice and then maybe I would be as good as him. You might have to zoom in but the fish really is there :)

Experienced parents out they EVER stop fighting?

First morning at Chesley! I love how happy they are in this picture.

Ryan had a little more luck with the Barbie fishing pole.

The kids and Scott at Presque Isle. I don't know the formal definition of joy...but this has to be pretty close.

I'm going to miss his little baby frog legs

Playing some more at Presque Isle

He has the sweetest face

Movie night with the cousins!

She could eat a whole watermelon by herself!

The kids really like giving their toys to this instance it was obviously Macey!

Ahhh! I can't get over how much I love this feisty little stinker!

Welcome to life after baby #3....Yes Ryan really is wearing a princess pull-up (but now he is potty trained woohoo!)...while diving off the couch cushions...while playing the a filthy house...while I stand idly by taking pictures. Life is good.

I found Macey...but not before she found the ice cream cake darn it.

Like I is good. And so CRAZY!
