Cell Phone Pics: October/November

Our minivan recently broke the 100,000 mark!

Moms Club Halloween party.  Those pumpkin cupcakes were SO good!

I chaperoned Bella's class field trip to Pennsbury Manor.  She's trying to write with an actual quill and ink.

And the kids all got to crush apples for apple cider that was made right in front of them. 

That was a chilly day.  And I woke up that morning with the beginnings of a cold.  So we made our way to Starbucks afterwards to warm up!

A boy from her class had a Halloween/birthday party.  Since it was a boy's party, Bella was feeling a little self conscious about her super girly Halloween costume, so she wore Graydon's pirate costume instead!  The sleeves and pants were a bit short, but for a pirate it doesn't really matter.  She looked cute!  (And the party was held at a fire station). 

This was our candy loot BEFORE trick-or-treating.  Between parties, parades, and church friends, we acquired quite a bit of treats!

Girl Scout Thanksgiving service project.  The girls all cut out their handprints and made these little turkey baskets that will be used for community Thanksgiving dinners. 

This photo generated quite a few comments on Facebook.  Curtis had a very difficult time packing up his shorts for the season.  After a while, I had to take this last pair off of his legs - he wouldn't do it.  And I had to bribe this little guy with Halloween candy in order to cheer him up. 

Getting ready for a soccer game.  Bella is holding Mr. Squirmy, her class pet.  She had him for a long weekend and had to take photos of their activities together and document them in a class journal.  She also could have taken home the real pets - two hermit crabs, but she opted not to.  In her words, "I think that would be too much."  The girl knows her boundaries! 

This is pretty much our Saturday mornings for the past two months - cheering for Bella on the sidelines of her soccer games.  This particular morning was really chilly!  She had her last official game of the season last Saturday night - full field and under the lights!  Her final game will be this coming Saturday - she was asked to play in the All-Star game!  I can't claim any of her athletic ability, but I sure am impressed with her. 

Bella and Mr. Squirmy in the nursery at church.  And she also brought Squiggles, Mr. Squirmy's cousin. 

Andy and I left the kids with a babysitter one day.  When we came home, Curtis was giddy as ever as he had discovered a pair of shorts that I somehow missed when packing them away. 

One morning after grocery shopping, Curtis asked if we could go to the park.  With the air being a little chilly, I knew our groceries would be fine for a while.  Before even getting to the park equipment, we made piles out of the MANY leaves all over the ground.  We had such a fun time together that morning. 

Last week, I took the kids shopping to pick out presents for Operation Christmas Child.  We finally packed our boxes on Saturday. 

If you haven't packed a box and want to, there's still time!  This week is drop-off week.  Click HERE to locate a drop-off location near you.
