Happy Halloween!!!!

Boy, it sure has been a busy day. It is closing in on 11 pm and I am just now starting to relax from it. Walker had a Jamboree at school today, they had a pumpkin patch, carnival games, crafts, candy, and a picnic lunch. I signed Carter and myself up to work. I was in charge of the craft room (they made fall picture frames) and Carter help the kids from station to station doing fun things and playing. We all at lunch together. I forgot my camera. I couldn't even believe it.

After school Truman fell asleep on the way home. He ended up taking a much needed Halloween 3 hour nap. WooHoo. I forced Walker to nap as well and he obliged. I think the morning was enough for him and he was dozing an hour after we got home. After he woke up, we got their costumes ready, carved a pumpkin, and got Truman up. They got dressed and we went outside and took pictures. For 2 excited boys they did good with the pictures. I am happy with what I got...for the first time in 3 years.

We went to Mema's house first. They had a great time shooting their new gun that they had gotten early this morning and Mema got them some really cool trick or treat bags.

Next up we stopped by Gigi's. She was dressed up with a clown wig. They boys got some candy and we were off to Mimi and Pappy's house.

We ate dinner over there and then Mimi helped me take the boys out since Carter had to work tonight. I was very impressed with how much they loved trick-or-treating. They had such a good time. Walker knew he was supposed to ring the doorbell and would announce, "frick or freet". Truman surprised me with saying "thank you" or something close to it a number or times. We ended up going house to house for almost 2 hours.

Hey Michelle - thanks for the comment. My husband and I aren't big which is why we haven't really worried until now - it's really the combination of actually losing weight, dropping off his height curve suddenly( not gradually) and him having lots of tummy pains. He doesn't even have a percentile for weight ( as in, it's that off the charts - it actually prints out as a negative percentile as if that's possible ;)) but he's been that way since about a year so I'm used to that. Our thoughts are that most likely he is fine but with all that has happened we feel like we need to check it out. He's always been little so that alone doesn't bother us -we just want to be sure.
By the way - your little ones are ADORABLE!!!
Thanks for praying for us.
