My mother pointed out to me how much Mr. Man looks like his father so I had to do a side by side.

Welcome Fall

We spent Halloween weekend with Mr. Man's family.  I didn't take many pictures of Halloween stuff, but hopefully will get copies of the group pictures we took. On Sunday we went to church with his brother who blessed his new baby.  It was our first time to his brother's house and it quite delighted me.  They have a great location, though I bet it's noisy during recess at the elementary school directly behind them.  They're across the street from the church and basically around the corner from the junior high and city rec center and a great park. Excellent location, cute house.  We took family pictures in their backyard and hopefully I'll get a copy of those as well.  Here are the few pictures I took.

Untying daddy's shoe laces.

Sweet baby before her blessing.  Just chilling getting a foot rub from Granddad.

Baby blue eyes.

Flower Pink LOVES checking out the other babies!

Flower Pink and her namesake.

"walking" to daddy.

Not my kids.  Cousins of my kids cousins, but how darling are they?!

Mischief LOVED the leaves.  We'll have to go find some for her to play in this week.

Ward trunk or treat

DQ - Lucy Higgins, Hogwarts student, Gryffindor house
Mischief - beagle puppy, thanks to Namma's amazing sewing skills
Sunshine - cat, thanks to Namma's purchase prior to deciding to figure out a beagle costume
Flower Pink - Strawberry 

Thanks you Namma for everyone's costumes!

Oh she LOVED this game. Lots of waving. 
Sunshine kindly made sure Flower Pink got a treat at each car. 

DQ was one of many Hogwarts students (I think there were 4 Harry Potters). She had to say many times though that NO she was NOT Hermione! Originality for my kid. 
Yes. She had a sucker or two for dinner. 

There were some mighty fun trunks! Sunshine got a bullseye here!

Learning to read!

At Parent Teacher conference last month, Mischief's teacher said she felt like Mischief was going to start taking off in reading. Finally. She said that M "got" it that week. 
And wonderfully she was absolutely correct. 
The kid IS getting it!!! I'm so so proud of her. 

And so grateful we were blessed with a wonderful teacher.
