What a fun Halloween it was! We have a tradition of having the Mixon's over. The dads take the kids out in our neighborhood to Trick or Treat and Sara and I stay at the house to pass out candy (a.k.a. "mommy time"). Well, Sara and I got a special gift this year from Sara's oldest daughter, Avery. She greeted the trick or treaters so we could sit and visit. We love you, Avery!!!! I asked Sara how many years she thought Avery would be willing to do this and she thinks we have another 3 or 4 Halloweens to enjoy this special service.
Here are the costumes for this year:
Parker Reese: Lil' Stinker (Skunk)
Audrey: Jango Fett
Avery: Micheal Phelps
Our neighborhood Publix also had Trick or Treating and I had to run up there to get drinks for everyone, so Parker got to practice Trick or Treating there before the real deal. All of the workers were dressed up and passed out candy throughout the store. He really enjoyed it. Preston was at home taking a nap...he had a surprise guest at his school for Halloween...guess who? His daddy! Jeremiah read two stories and played freeze tag with Preston's Pre-K and then they had a Fall Harvest Celebration.
After Trick or Treating, Jason, Lesley and Austin came over. So we had 6 kids and 6 and 6 adults...not bad. Sara gave me iphoto/Mac lessons which I always love. I could have done that for hours, but the littles were tired and all sugared up.
On another note, baby Haley Jane is doing better. Her mommy and daddy, Todd and Cat, were able to hold her and they sent us some cute pictures. Keep them in your prayers as Cat returns to health and gets to know Haley Jane.
Happy Fall Y'all,
