Ryker was "the real batman" for Halloween this year. That is what he told people anyways, so cute!
Bridger was an astronaut. Can you believe my sister made this costume...amazing!
I Love this picture of Bridger and his cute little face!
Liv was definitely a hit in her mermaid costume. She pulls off the long blond wig quite nicely don't you think?:)
Shawn was a.......................
Well, I don't really know exactly what he was.....
but it was kind of creepy:)
And I dressed up as a party pooper this year. Meaning I didn't dress up, maybe next year. Sorry no picture;)

All on a Rainy October Saturday....

A little over a week ago, our boys had a little bit of a stomach bug. It was a rainy Saturday, and for the first time in a long time we had nothing planned for the day. It was such a fun day though. We were all together, and we just enjoyed the day as a family in our home. We dehydrated apples in to "apple chips" as Ryker would say
Had some homemade bread
and apple crisp
We then helped the kids paint pumpkins. I have come to the conclusion that it is so much more fun to paint the pumpkins rather than carve them at this stage of life. I don't have to assist the kids at all, I just let them go at it and paint. They loved it.

Rykers scary face to go along with his scary pumpkin. He also painted a nice face on the other side of the pumpkin and would change it everyday:)

Bridger's pumpkin...I I told him to paint the nose, and he painted his nose instead of the pumpkins. If you look close, you can see the little dot on his nose.
Liv with her pumpkin....they kind of look like each other:)
such a sweetie!
Our pumpkin family....
At the end of the day when the kids were asleep, Shawn and I curled up to a redbox movie and drank hot chocolate. It was such a perfect day even if the kids were a little sick, sometimes it is so nice to just slow down and enjoy being together as a family and enjoy one anothers company.
