the Pumpkin Patch

so we had a good halloween. it was a big, long day - but a good day, i think, for everyone. miles had playgroup in the morning - and when i picked him up from it he was teary and i was told he was pretty much teary/crying the whole time. he's afraid of another playmate, luke, who is quite fond of hitting - especially miles. poor miles.

while the kids were napping i got to/had to make about 3 dozen donuts that my husband had signed-up for in priesthood meeting. i was fine with it - but, really, sign-up sheets in priesthood should be called "signing-up my wife" sheets. really. so that took me like 1 1/2 - 2 hours to do.

then i took the kids to get to get the flu shots. the nurse/frog was great - neither kid cried at all!miles was actually in denial that he had received the shot. i was asking him about it on the way home and he kept replying, "i didn't get the shot." whatever you want to think kid. he DID NOT let the nurse put a bandaid on him afterwards - maybe that's why he thinks he didn't get one???

then we got ready and headed over to the church for a halloween party - they had little carnival-like games, food, and finally trunk-or-treating. it was a lot of fun, but with a ward of 700 people it's kind of crazy to combine with another ward! so it was a little hectic, but fun. i sat with jonas during the trunk-or-treat and ben took miles around. i guess miles LOVED it and would belt out "RICK or REAT." (he does not say his "t.") the kids were SO cute, in my opinion. fun day.

p.s. i think i made it possible for "non-registered" people to post comments. so i was wondering if a non-registered person would post a comment so i could see if it works or not. thanks!

erin said...

could the boys be any cuter?! no. i better have all girls. you didn't even mention jonas' walking!

emily said...

erin - ummmm, i did tell you jonas was walking when we were talking on the phone on tuesday. you acted like you heard me cuz you were pretty excited and even replied, "so does he like it?" you don't even have kids and it sounds like you're losing brain cells already!

p.s. you might want to clarify your statement of "i better have all girls." i know what you mean, but i don't want other people to think you're thinking of some kind of in-breeding or something! haha.

You totally put me to shame....What cute costumes, and pictures!!!!! Sorry about the sign my wife up sheet, but I agree, that's what they are! Thanks for taking one for the team. And I did actually update the blog, so when you have minute take a peek!

erin said...

i remember that you told me, but i thought that you might want to tell everyone else that he was walking. that's all. no brain cells gone yet.
