Hate to say it...

But we are missing football already!  A few weeks ago, we finished off the season with the Tiny Mite Superbowl and a great party for the kids.  Since then, we have been having football withdrawals!  It has been strange to have all this free time and being able to cook dinner and eat it at home instead of at practice.  But it has been nice too be able to do those things too.  We will miss football, but until then we have some great pictures to hold us until next season.


 Helping with a tackle in our last regular season game.

 That would be Christopher being tackled by 2 defenders.

 Strong arm and keep on going.

And on his way to the end zone!  He got his first touchdown in that game and we are so proud of him and the Seacoast Titan Tiny Mites!

Halloween Fun

Well, after much snow, power outages and delays, we were finally able to take the kids out trick or treating on Monday night (who would have thought to actually do that on Halloween?!)
 My bird boys were ready to head out as soon as the clock struck 5, the official trick or treating start time. It started out as one of those nights when Aiden was not having any part of his costume, but thankfully once we got outside he let me put it on and never thought about taking it off again.
And we're off!

We did a practice round at our friends' grandparents' house. Aiden had it down after that and he was ready to go to other doors.  What kid wouldn't love this: look cute, smile and ask nicely and candy is dropped into your hands!  Score!

The country is safe, and large green pigs will run and hide from these two!

Riding in style from house to house.  So thankful they brought this out with us!  Made the night much easier. 

Happy Halloween from our gang of goblins!

First Snow - 2011

 It may have come unbelievably early this year, but it didn't stop Christopher from running outside to catch his first snowflakes of the year.  I love his unwavering enthusiasm for the white precipitation, even when it never seems to stop falling!

It's hard to take Halloween pumpkins seriously when they are covered in snow.
