Fall soccer is about over. The last game is this weekend, pending any rainouts. The team celebrated the season at Fuddruckers with hamburgers, video games, tropheys, and an awesome cake made by the coach's wife. Way to go Strikers!

It is hard to believe that Joshua is 6 years old. This year we are taking Joshua and one friend to Great Wolf Lodge to celebrate his birthday (he chose this). However, I don't think he missed out on his birthday. Not only did he get a cookie cake and small celebration at home with family, but he celebrated all day at school too. The school had their annual Veterans Day parade that morning. Then that afternoon I brought cupcakes and party favors to celebrate his birthday and Mrs. Lewis' birthday (his teacher) with the class. We had so much fun in the classroom eating cupcakes, dancing, and taking silly pictures with the fun sunglasses. Overall a great day for Joshua!
We had a busy Halloween weekend. Saturday Jeff and I took the boys to the Owens Big Orange Pumkin Farm. It is a small farm, but perfect for our two little guys and our time constraint with soccer, halloween parties, and pumpkin carving the same day. Sunday we let the boys trick-or-treat at the houses on our street. I think they would love to treat at more homes, but I am pretty sure I did not want to.
HPPM, Joshua's elementary, held a dress up like your 'Favorite Story Book Character' day during red ribbon week. Joshua selected Harry Potter. No, he has not read the books. He has seen the movies and I have started reading the books to him. He likes HP because of the movies...it is hard to beat the visual effects.
Not only did we get to enjoy our church trunk-or-treat, but we got to enjoy the trunk-or-treat sponsored by the church where Andrew's school is housed. We met up with the Sides' for a hot dog dinner and then treats. The boys also got a chance to take a picture with the KIT car and of course bounce the night away.
Andrew and I went to the Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas with my mom, sister, two of her kids, and one that she watches. The children's part of the museum did a festive story time and craft to celebrate Halloween the day we were there as well. I think the kids enjoyed running all around the museum, making gigantic bubbles, digging up bones, climbing the rock wall, riding tractors, milking cows, driving the fire truck, oh so many things for them to do. I look forward to going many more times with our season passes.

Mimi and Grampie joined us this year at the annual M2M Trunk-or-Treat. Joshua dressed as Iron Man and Andrew Spiderman. There were so many cute costumes this year. Best boy costume when to the golfer. Best girl costume went to the Fall fairy. Best trunk decoration went to the Darth Vador trunk. Thanks Mimi and Grampie in sharing in this fun time with the boys...now on to one more Trunk-or-Treat on Wednesday and Trick-or-Treating Halloween night.
