The New Look

Well, I happen to have a very talented sister and she is starting a blog and web design business called Uncluttered Design. She asked me a few weeks ago if I would be willing to be her guinea pig and let her give our blog a new look...uh...twist my arm...YES! We love the new look! Check out her site, she is even doing a GIVEAWAY right now with the launch of her business, maybe you could win a cool new look! :)

Halloween 2009

We had a very fun Halloween party at our church this year.
We didn't have a family theme in our costumes but we did all have a costume: Dr. Kurtis, me as a maternity patient, I loved my comfortable and easy costume :), race car driver Malachi and Chickadee Zoe.
We brought a pumpkin for the pumpkin carving which I think turned out awesome, thanks to Kurtis cause I can't say Malachi was all that into it. :)
Malachi with his winnings, a jar full of Hershey's Kisses. The goal of course was to guess how many were in the jar and Malachi was only 5 off! The only direction I gave him was, "There are a lot in there so it's probably a big number." He then guessed, "1-3-0." I confirmed that he meant, "130," he said yes and I wrote it down on his paper for him...and he won!
Zoe being our cute little chickadee (thanks for letting us borrow the costume Verwys'!) She was pretty timid the whole night, wasn't quite sure what to make of all the strange costumes, but she seemed to have fun.
After the fun games, yummy food and lots of sugar we piled in the car to head home and the kids were asleep and in bed not too soon after their regular bedtime. No Trick-or-Treating door to door, which I was more than happy about!
