Trick - Or - Treat!

Well you guessed it, Halloween is here and we're in full swing of things. Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Bee and Nemo have been trick - or -treating 3 times now - this year! First, we went to Louisville's Trick or Treat. Great until we got rained on. Second, we went to Carnation Mall and third we went to Belden Villiage Mall. Oddly enough, out of all the kids stores there, i think two of them were passing out candy - it was mainly the jewlery stores and adult/teen stores. Ironic....
Other than that, Peyton is eagerly awaiting his first birthday. November 13th here we come! BTW, save the date of November 15th for Peytons Party - it'll most likely be from about 4-6pm that way everyone can get a nap in before the party. Now, on to the pictures!

We started off at Giant Eagle and headed towards my best friends house (even though she lives in Georgia right now, her mom asked that we stop by or she "wasnt doing halloween"). In the picture below is Landon (Pooh in a pumpkin), Piglet (Emily, Landons future wife) and Brenden (the honey bee).

This picture is Piglet (Emily) who was happy to sit on anyones porch if they gave her candy. Many many times, Amber and Zach (her mommy and daddy) had to carry her off of a porch b/c she is just soooo social.

So every time we would turn around and have our backs to the boys, they would eat a sucker. If we turned, they would quickly throw it in the bucket. Cute until we caught them! That's what you call ornery if you ask me.

And last but way not least, we have NEMO. A little bit tired after a long walk around the neighborhood trick or treating. He made it all the way to the old middle school. Oddly enough, so did the rain - it was nice until we got there and the skies just opened up and ironicaly, the doors to the school were the guys ran to get the cars at Giant Eagle and Amber, Emily, Ambers Mother in law and sister in law, Bethany (our neighbor from on Kenyon) and her dog Cody, me, Brenden, Landon and Peyton all stood in the stairwell to the middle school.

Is it really fall?

First off, anyone that knows what they're doing on this blogger thing needs to help me out. For some reason, i've lost my template thing and I cant change this boring background to any of those cutesy fall ones. Anyways, othat than that, whoever is in charge of the trescott page needs to let me in on the secret to posting on it b/c even though everyone else (Beck...) can figure out how to post on there...I cant.

Aside from all the technical stuff, we've been preparing for the change of the seasons. See pictures below...
Here we are trying on our winter "gear". Coats fit.....check!

Boots fit...check! Landon looks like he should be working on the corner LOL.

Peyton has been crawling all over the place. He'll be one next month but you think he'd be 2 1/2 just like his brothers. He wont eat baby food anymore - he has to eat just what they're eating. He wont play with baby toys like for his age, he's about as into Thomas The Train as the boys are. He even says "train" and has 2 of his own that he stands at the end table with both boys and pushes along. He's growing up so fast. I'm trying to figure out a place to have a b-day party for him so if anyone has any ideas of a nice indoor place for ALOT of kids, let me know or else, McDonalds it's going to be.

Looks like it's time to be picking up leaves. We've been doing our share. We've picked em up and toted them around in our dump trucks just to dump them all out in the end...Many many many miles have been put on these dump trucks.

After waiting the whole summer and trying to figure out where to hang Peytons Swing, we finally though - duh, hang it on the clothes hook for the clothes line. So we did. He loves it. If my camera battery woudlnt have died, i was definately going to get a video of him squealing!
And last but not least, today, mom was outside the door and Peyton was squealing at her from the inside - the video is kinda grainy but we have times of the day that all three boys are doing this...they're crazy! We need a play group to get us outta the house or something
