Bumblebee, Thor, a Butterfly and a Pumpkin

It has taken me awhile to get this posted but the kids loved Halloween this year.  The day before we carved pumpkins.  Gabe had no problem digging right in.

Ty and Callie on the other hand were a little more aprehensive of the pumpkin goo.

Daddy had to scoop their pumpkins out for them:)  Here are the finished products.
Gabe's Jack O lantern
Ty's Jack O Lantern(very robotic looking don't you think?:)
and Callie's Jack O Lantern
The kids were very excited for trick or treating on Halloween night.  We had Bumblebee
a butterfly
and a pumpkin who really didn't care about trick or treating but who did like spending the evening with Grandma and Grandpa where it was warm:) (That costume used to have a cute little stem hat but apparently through the years is was misplaced:(

 The kids were a hit with their lighted trick or treat buckets from Grandpa Tim, I wished we would have had business cards to pass our from the lady who makes them because I think we were asked at every house where we got them!
After a successful night of trick or treating we went over to Grandma's for Pizza.  The kids are excited to have Ezra Join in the activities next year!

4 Months

Look who has discovered his hands(and fingers and thumbs!)  It is hard to get a picture of Ezra without his hands in his mouth lately.  See
Ezra's schedule changed somewhat this month, he now eats 6 oz. every 4 hours instead of 4 oz. every 3.  It is great!  I don't feel like I am feeding him all the time and he seems to be doing really well with his new schedule.  He really found his voice this month and lets us know with happy squeals and laughs as well as voices his opinion when he is not happy too!  The day he turned 4 months his first tooth popped through on the bottom and made me very sad.  He is growing up waaaaay too quickly for this mama.  He loves his brothers and sister and always has big smiles and squeals to give them much to their delight.  Gabe even took him for sharing at his school!  He had his 4 month check-up on Monday and weighs in at 15 lbs. 13.5 oz and was 24 1/2 inches long!  Here is our 4 month old big boy without his hands in his mouth!(smiling at big sister of course!)
