Pictures from Trick or Treating in Live Oak, Texas.

 My little Zebra
 The Avengers: Iron Man and Captain America (Mike put glow stick liquid on the circle and star so they would glow.

Our favorite house decorations in the neighborhood.  The baby skeleton moaned when you walked by it.

Pumpkin Carving

Pumpkin carving - it has been a lot of years since we have carved pumpkins.  Around 4 or 5 years - this year we finally decided to jump back into it.  The boys got online and each picked out their own design.  Alex did not want to put his hand in the pumpkin to clean it out - Luke helped him out!

 I have no idea what is on Luke's face...
 Mike and Luke carved his one night and then did Alex's pumpkin the next night

 Luke's on the left and Alex's on the right.

Galina is 4 months old!

My big girl is 4 months old now.  At her well baby appointment she was 15 lbs 13 oz and 24.5 inches long.

Here are some pictures:


Just some random shots from the middle of October.

 Her cute little cat Halloween outfit - she barely fit into the shirt.  First and only time to wear that one!

 Ready for a morning walk with Daddy - we walk together on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings when Mike doesn't have class till 10am.

I just love this picture of Luke and Galina.  He put the book down so that she could hold it.

Last weekend we finally remembered to bring the camera with the right lens for soccer pics.  So here are some of my favorites (we took more than 200).

Galina took an extra long nap so I am now caught up with all my posts for now :)

Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maize

Last weekend we went out to the Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maize in Hondo, Texas.  We had a great time picking out a pumpkin for each of the kids, jumping around, shooting corn and getting "lost" in the  corn maize at night.

 This reminds me so much of Kansas!
 I love this family picture!

 A baby pumpkin for each of my babies
 Look at the height on that jump
 Mr and Mrs pumpkin had twins the same age as Galina

 Getting ready to go into the Maize
 Galina didn't make it far before she fell asleep.  The boys each had a glow stick to lead us around the maize.
