Happy Halloween!!!!!!

Wow! I just can't believe today is Halloween! Where is time going?

I have oodles of pictures and cute stories to share, and I will, but it'll have to wait a bit until I can find a breather in my chaotic world.

We had the pleasure of having Baby Seth overnight a couple of weeks ago and this past weekend was the celebration of his baptism, so we had lots of family in town.

Saturday we took the kids, along with their cousin, Gianna, to the pumpkin patch. They had loads of fun and even let me take pictures in between their running around.

Monday night, Scott and Amanda carved two pumpkins while the little ones watched. They all agreed on a "Scaaarrrryyy" pumpkin and a "Haaaapppyyy" pumpkin. It was precious to see their faces when the lights were turned off and the candles were lit inside the jack-o-laterns.

Last night, after a candle-lit jack-o-latern dinner with the kids, Scott had all the little ones going from (closed) door to door inside the house (bathroom door, bedroom door, etc.) and knocking. One of us would open the door from the other side and the kids would stand there holding their bags and practice yelling out "TRICK-OR-TREAT" followed by us putting something in their bags (i.e.; a sock, a comb, heh...) and then they'd say, "Thank you" and run off to the next door. We all had a good laugh. They were so adorable. I can't wait to see them really trick-or-treating tonight!

This morning the kids all awoke with excitement that Halloween had finally arrived. We've been counting down days for almost a month now.

Kai dressed in his Dragon Tales costume and off we went to his school to join in the parade and Halloween celebrations. Anna Grace and AJ, although somewhat confused by all of the costumes and excitement, also had great fun and I have lots of pictures to share.

Tonight all 3 little munchkins will be trick-or-treating and will again be joined by Baby Seth in his lion costume.....too cute!

Our lives are indeed full of chaos, craziness and loudness, but we wouldn't want it any other way. Life is awesome and we have so much to be thankful for.

Remember to check back for pics and updates.

PS. Lame me, still, has not had the chance to answer emails....BUT (those famous words) I will!!! Also, thank you all so much that have emailed/commented on North Carolina. It's exciting to even ponder the thought right now. I do indeed have to pray for discernment and am asking the Lord to take us to where He needs and wants us to be.
