We had such a fun Halloween! It was the warmest one we've had since we lived in California, so it was great. Anna looked so pretty, and she was so excited. My mom made her a beautiful costume that was the new Barbie movie character. I thought my mom was going to have a heart attack as Anna was playing tag and running around at a party we went to before trick or treating. The costume was ripped when she got home, but she still looked great. Topher was Harry Potter and he looked fabulous. I put black hair spray in his hair, and none of the neighbors even recognized him. His owl on his shoulder didn't quite work, but he looked great nonetheless. Jacob was the same thing as last year-Dash. He came up with a different, hard to make costume on a daily basis, so when he was playing dress up in Dash I gushed about how great he looked-aren't I a great mom? He still did look cute in it though, so I am not all bad! Baby Sharon looked so cute in her poodle costume. She didn't go trick or treating, but she liked her suit.
As a little side note, as I was feeding Jacob dinner tonight, I was telling him he needed to eat his vegetables or he could go sit on his bed. I started to count to three, and then he said, "I need to poop. That's allowed, right?" He took care of business and then came back and ate his vegetables. He is a very funny little boy.

I can't believe that it is already November! We had such a busy but fun month of October. My birthday was great, it was fun to talk to people and to have a day all about me, who doesn't love that? I had a really nice birthday this year. I can't believe that I am 34, that sounds sooo old, but I guess it is all relative. I can't believe that I am married to someone who is 36! We finished up Lacrosse season for Anna and she had a great time. She got the award for being the best goalie on the team, and she really enjoyed it. Jay had a great time coaching her and that was a fun thing for them to do together. Topher finished football and had a great season. As he will tell you, every time he touched the ball, he scored a touchdown, but since he got the ball three times, that's all the times he scored, but still a very impressive stat! He had a fun team and loved playing. He can hardly stand it though he wants to play tackle so bad! I thought we were going to have a break between these sports and then basketball, but no, we went right into basketball. I am coaching Anna's team and we've had a lot of fun so far. She is so cute playing, I love to watch her. Topher has a nice team too. They both have their first games tomorrow, so we'll see how everybody does!
We have had a lot of company and that has been really fun. We had such a fun visit with Christine and Clark and their family-it was so nice of them to make the trek over here to come see us. The kids had a great time, and so did we.
Halloween was yesterday and the kids loved it, I will have to do another blog later about Halloween because I am trying to get the house cleaned up, and then off to basketball myself in about an hour. I just thought I would write a quick post-time really flies if you don't stay on top of it!
