Halloween 2007

All three boys have been sick since my last update (Colin had a sinus infection, Carter had strep, now Clayton has an ear infection/upper respiratory infection.) Also, we have had visits by Nana and PawPaw and YaYa. Plus, Aunt Bertie got married to Uncle Nick and the boys were ring bearers (Andy ended up being a ring bearer bearer and walked down the aisle with the fellas.) They were so precious in their tuxes! Clayton will be four months on Tuesday!! Halloween was so much fun. On Friday and Saturday we hit the pumpkin patch. On Sunday we went to a Fall Festival at First Baptist Aledo where we jumped in bounce houses, roped a steer, played games and, of course, ate a lot of candy! Then on Wednesday night we went trick-or-treating hayride style with our Life Group at New River Fellowship. After initially deciding to be Swiper the Fox (Colin) and a ninja turtle (Cart) we ended up with good ol' Batman and Superman. And the boys wear Batman and Superman every day! Clayton dressed up as a spider! Anyway, we had a fun time the past week and if we could just get well we would be in good shape. I have only caught the boys shoveling candy in as fast as they could one time, so that is good. Today they were using sticks to harrass an enormous grasshopper, and it jumped on Carter's arm and he flipped out, saying, "It hurt me! It hurt me!" They are hilarious!
