My blog is being dumb. It tells me I'm out of storage space. When I try to upgrade it for 2.50/month, it tells me my request failed to process. I'll try again later. Sorry it's so late!

A super quiet time

Jocko turned 14 on November 2nd! I can't believe it! Everyone had a great time singing to her.
My poor husband had his 4th ACL surgery on his left knee on Tuesday. He's feeling very good though and his kids are being very helpful and nice to him!
Avery's favorite color for daycare on Tuesday! I can't spell out the color unfortunately because the double-u on the computer keyboard is not cooperating.
I can't even spell out the name of this cold substance that came from the sky in bunches! Apparently it is named inter Storm Brutus - and it is a doozy. None of it has melted at all. There are tons of huge icicles hanging too!
Teagie has discovered that he can climb the ladder up to Carter's bed. I'm not pleased! He is though! He refused to take off this shirt from Grandma for 2 days - he even slept in it!
Day 2 of the storm. 2 crazy boys loving it before they hopped in Auntie Erica's car for school!
Looking good Miss Boo - she's ready to brave the Storm!
Grandma and Poppa came back from Bozeman ith this lovely turkey hat! Carter looked fabulous!
They also got Ave some dance clothes. She loves dance stuff (and she looks smashing in it)!
Sometimes a boy is so tired, he can't even get a shirt on before nap time. Poppa said it looked like Mardi Gras!
These three helped Poppa shovel outside. They had some rosy cheeks after! It as definitely cocoa time! Unfortunately it is too cold to really play out there.
Teagie really enjoyed his first time having cocoa. He made a giant mess so I found a nice orange stra (damn keyboard!). This is a hard post to type out - I use that missing letter a lot! More next time...very quiet these last couple days.

Another singing Avery video!

I'm not sure why this is so orange, but I love her raspy little singing voice. I'm also proud she can sing old songs that I remember from when I was little (Mom bought us a Disney sing-a-long tape). She also knows all about the Beatles (that's my girl!).

More Halloween fun!

This is from Grandma's camera. She was late for the parade at Emerson because she was at Teagie's parade. The teachers let her take a few pictures before they went back to class. Mr. Popular here has a lot of little buddies already! Mom said they didn't want him to take a picture by himself.
He won best costume! I'm not sure who voted, but my little policeman led the parade and got a $5 giftcard for Walmart (he got a gun that makes noise of course)!
These cousins are awfully cute. They had a lot of fun together on Halloween.
My friend Andrea had some great decorations - we stopped there after visiting Nancy and Frank.
Teague liked her glowing pumpkin.
All purple flower fairies should really wear police hats - look how great they look together!
They enjoyed some pizza with Grandma while Dad and I were in Billings for the third week in a row.
Cool guy alert!
Four Halloween kiddos!
It was so nice to see Terri Jo and Drea! I wish I would have seen them more than once. She is so cute, and such a good little girl!
I got to walk the little ladybug around for a few minutes and get some cuddles. She's just a sweet baby!
The spider checked out the ladybug a few times. It was pretty funny to watch them size eachother up!
We did some trick or treating at Grandma's work and Aunt Terri's work. The waiting room on the 5th floor has an awesome fish tank. They almost didn't want to leave!
Cute little brothers going around the neighborhood together.
Erica and I were there too, but this is a nice shot of Kyle and the four kids all lined up. It was a beautiful night! We really lucked out!
Teague was a maniac. He wanted to pick out his own candy at every house! All the kids were so good about saying "Trick or Treat", "Happy Halloween", and "Thank You!". Even my Ave, whose usually shy, was wonderful about it.
Erica and Lando were doing some great bear shadows. Since you can't see the shadows, they just look crazy!
They are lucky to have such a giant kid for a Grandpa. This mask has been around about 20 years I think - it never fails to scare at least one of them!
Gotta pass around such an awesome mustache!
Teagie loves a good bath - he looks so fresh and so clean (clean).
Poor passed out baby! I love when he falls asleep on his own, that's when you know he's a super tired guy!
