I love this photograph.
I feel like it says so much about my kids ages (and maybe a touch of personality too).
This was taken at our ward party last weekend, about 2 minutes into the donut game.
The game where you can't use your hands to eat the donut on a string.
Zach stands there, no bite thus far, but patiently going at it.
And Lily, well, she doesn't suffer fools gladly.
She's taken matters into her own hands, literally.
Zachary's kindergarten Halloween party was last Wednesday, and I was in charge of the craft.
We made these little owl cookie pops. Fun and cute. (made from a moon pie!)
We spent the weekend in St. Louis for my grandfather's 80th birthday party.
It was a wonderful time.
I got back this afternoon and was feeling horrible.
So sick, I slept for 6 hours.
And now here it is Halloween night.
I'm afraid I won't get a decent picture of their costumes this year,
(maybe I can convince them to dress up tomorrow?)
and tomorrow is November 1st.
I can think of two radio stations that will be playing Christmas music.
This time of year goes so quickly, and I do love it.

Sorry your sick! The bug is holding on here, too. Great pictures, your kids look so cute dressed up. Is that a gorilla costume roman is wearing? Darling. And the craft is fantastic! Leave it to you, Tara. :)

Sorry to hear that you are not feeling well.

Halloween was crazy around our house...I will have to tell you all about it. I handed out candy at my mom's house.

See you soon.
