Happy Halloween~ 2009

This year the halloween tradition continued starting with mom making a yummy chili dinner. Jill and Dave came over with Hayden and Talan and after dinner we began the task of dressing them up. This year Hayden elected to be Superman. Talan was the cutest spider you've ever seen and Rainah was a ladybug. Rainah had been saying all day that she wasn't going to dress up, but she did cooperate. When the three Yahoos were ready, the picture taking commenced. They actually did much better this year than in years past- it helps when they're being bribed with brand new Pez dispensers from Grandma.
It was pretty cold out, but the kids didn't seem to mind. At the first house, Rainah had a field day. Miss Rochelle made the mistake of letting the kids pick what they wanted out of the basket- needless to say, Rainah needed to be escorted off of the porch before she cleaned them out.
Hayden was raring to go and was racing from house to house. Rainah was over the whole thing after about the fifth house. She eventually just rode in the stroller and Don and I went ahead back to mom and dads. Talan did well, but no one could keep up with Hayden! He came back with quite a haul.

Rainah's favorite: the ring pop


Striking a super pose

Poor Talan lost his Pez dispenser in all the leaves!

The first house- Tucker was ready and waiting for them

The other kids are gone and she's still taking more candy

Finally, Uncle Dave escorts her away from the candy

All done

The Leaves Are Falling

Rainah has been wanting to go out and play in the leaves, so since it was a nice day, we pulled the rakes out. As we were piling up the leaves for her to jump in, Cheyenne brought us back one of her "finds", (if you get grossed out easily, you may not want to look at the first few photos!)
Rainah had a great time jumping, raking, jumping, throwing leaves, jumping, and just getting filthy out in the yard. Needless to say, it was straight to the bathtub when we were done!

Nice little six-pointer

Yep; that's a deer leg... complete with fur... (did you just throw up in your mouth a little?)
