Hey there.

Here are some scaaaaary things.  Pics and videos and such.  Here is a pre-trick-or-treating video of Lena:

and here are come pictures.  yes, I know that James does not have a costume on.  It's kind of a funny story.  So my friend Meredith was bringing her 2 boys over to join the other 6 kids and 6 adults already here.  She was picking up pizza for everyone and had a pumpkin costume for James.  She's the only one who does not live in our 3 block radius.  And then she gets a flat tire in the parking lot of the pizza place.  And then her in-laws drive over to save her and they get pulled over.  and get a ticket.  and then her husband shows up and switches her vehicles or something and they finally make it.... after we've already taken the kids trick-or-treating once.  We took the kids out again when she arrived and we all ate pizza but by that time James was in bed for the night.  Oh well.  He'll never remember anyway.

And then we celebrated our friend Grant's birthday, a Halloween birthday :)

Lena may or may not have tried to steal his birthday wish.....

Lena Says #6

I find Lena at the top of the stairs peering through the bars of the baby gate after I'd put her in bed for a nap...

Lena: "Mom. I REALLY need your help."
Me: "With what, Bean?"
Lena: "I really need your help so I can climb over this baby gate."

(Halloween stuff coming soon.....)
