The boys had so much fun today. We started off by hitting the offices of Elizabeth's dad and Eric. Then we went to Bart's office. The kids got to go through mini spook alleys (which koda was very nervous about), pop balloons to get candy, and eat lots of sweets!!!!

Koda was a fireman and Kashe was a minion (from Dispicable Me). Renata knitted him a cute minion hat. I got lots of compliments on it!! 

This evening we went trick-or-treating around the neighborhood with Jack and Graham. That little threesome could hardly wait. They were running door to door. At first Kashe kept up, but eventually he went more of a normal pace. 

What a great time! The kids were bouncing off the walls tonight...and I don't know that they got more than a few bites of normal food today. The joys of Halloween! 

Tonight while I was laying in bed with koda, while he fell asleep...he was rubbing the minky blanket, my thoughts were taken back. When he was a baby, he used to do this to fall asleep. My little boy is so grown up. I am so excited for him, but I also miss my baby. 

This is Kashe blinking. For some reason he has been blinking a lot this past week. I wonder if it had something to do with the song, "Do as I'm Doing"...we sang this a couple weeks ago...and we did blinking. Ever since then, Kashe seems to deliberately blink. It's so funny!!!

I love these cuties!!

Happy Birthday Koda Bear

On Saturday we had a bday party for koda. It was a lot of fun!!! 

Koda has been crossing off the days on the calendar until his party. That morning we decorated in yellow and red for a firan Sam birthday. The boys were both so helpful and wanted to climb the ladder and hand me balloons to hang. 

For the party the boys wore their fireman costumes. It was fun to see everyone and enjoy spending time with family.

Grandma Mercier was their, Scott & Emily , Marisa and Tyson, Great-Grandma Darling, Grandma & Grandpa Gordon, Chey & Sterling (I think that's his name...sorry), Grandma Bench & Stormy, Grandpa Marks, Karissa & Kevin, Shareen & Nathan. It was a lot of fun!!!! 

Koda was all smiles. Kashe was wanting the party for himself, so that was a little hard. But he got some consolation cute!!! 

I took pics, but they are on my other camera. I will have to post some later.

Kashe is a cutie!

Tonight Karissa, Kevin, and Kevin's mom came to visit. It was so great to see them!!!! Kashe called Kevin's mom "grandma". It was so funny. 

And on that note...Bart took the kids shopping today. There was an older lady at the store and they kept passing her. Each time he would say grandma. The lady replied, "I am a grandma, but not yor grandma". Then Kashe said to her, "my grandma". 

To all older women...Kashe might call you grandma. He loves grandma's. Don't worry, it doesn't mean your old. :-)
