E.T. Phone Home

Yes, it was E.T. in that picture that Ezra drew. He wouldn't pose with the stuffed E.T. (which used to be Matt's when he was a kid), so Justus was happy to stand in. Ezra wanted to watch E.T. tonight, but instead we watched home videos and let me tell you how LONG it went on for.

Justus FINALLY ate all of his dinner tonight, so he was able to have some ice cream. And, he really wanted to get ALL of it!

I'm an Aunt!

Kyle and Jamie, my brother and sister-in-law, had their first baby on Saturday morning. Her name is Brianne Hisako Whiteside and we are all SO excited to meet her! It is going to be very fun to see my little brother be a dad. A totally different role than I have ever seen him in, but I am confident that he will do a great job!!

Can anyone guess what Ezra was for Halloween this year? He finally got a pilot's jacket to wear so he was very happy and hardly wanted to take it off the whole day. Justus started the day being Thomas, but he really wasn't too excited about that costume. Thankfully we have all the makings for a cowboy so he was happy to change into that. I really wasn't sure what Gianna was going to be dressed up as, but finally it all came together. With some wings made out of pipe cleaners and tissue paper and packing tape, she was an angel (or while brushing her teeth she was the tooth fairy). We went to the mall to trick or treat and the boys had the funniest looks on their faces as people were putting candy into their bags. It really is like that Seinfeld routine,
"everyone we know is just giving out candy??!!" The little minds just have trouble understanding the concept. We then picked up Matt from work and headed over to our friends' church's Harvest Festival. More candy and some games and a mini bounce house. They loved it. Ezra and Justus even tried their hand at the balloon and dart game, which was actually a bit scary. Thankfully they didn't hurt anyone.
