Thanksgiving was good

Man I stink at this blogging thing lately.  Long time, no write.  I have a to-do list right now that is about 23 pages long and growing longer by the second.  Eventually I will catch up on all the happenings around here.  Okay, probably not, but I'll give it a good try.  
Thanksgiving was good.  Food was good. Pie was good.  Shopping was good.  
These kiddos of mine tried like crazy to get the Christmas tree up before Thanksgiving.  Not happening here. Lets enjoy the bird and stuffing then we can bring on the candy canes and stockings.  
Now that Thanksgiving is over the tree is up

^^pretend grif's eyes are open in the pic. 
 It will save me the hassle of trying to load another pic on here. 
Also look at the top of the tree.  See the white square there?  Apparently I tossed the tree topper last time I took the tree down because it was broken (I have a very vague recollection of that happening).  I figured when the time came I could just go buy a new one, well now that it's here I haven't had time to get one (remember the list of to-do's that's 23 25 pages long now?).
Dilon decided to solve the problem by grabbing a tissue, drawing a star on it, and then slapping it on the top of the tree. Works for me, besides the fact that he got permanent marker on my garbage can lid as he was drawing it. Thank heavens for magic erasers.

Halloween 2016

Here's a little of our 2016 Halloween fun.  

Nate and I go to a friend party every year. 
 These people are fantastic.
We were lame and cheap and didn't really want to spend money on costumes, so burglars it was.  

Dilon has hit the age where he's too cool/old for trick-or-treating.  He went to the trunk-or-treat with us but wouldn't dress up and then ditched us to go with his friends.  Lame.
Grif is on the fence about whether or not he's too old.  Last minute he decided he wanted to do the trunk-or-treat so we quickly threw together a costume for him.
Dax and Bay are still loving Halloween.  They were over it by 7:15 though which is fantastic when it falls on a Monday night.  Works for me.  
Dax makes such a cute little girl!  People truly thought he was a girl dressed as a cheerleader. Their faces were pretty funny when they figured out who it was. 

Happy Halloween!
