The boys are really on a Super Hero kick, and they wanted to fly like Superman. We took a couple of hours this morning and Bill taught the boys how to fly. So, here they are...

ouch, Ouch, OUCH!!!

So, my kids are having an incredibly accident prone day today. Thought I'd share.
First of all, I wake up this morning to all three of my children jumping on my head, then Ezra decides to swing on the bed post, slips off, and lands on.... his face. Come on, this is Ezra after all, he does it right every time. By the way, Ezra also has a black eye on the other side of his face, and we have no idea where it came from! Yesterday I noticed it when I was putting him down for a nap, when I asked him about it he told me a rock punched him in the eye. (siiiiiggh)

Later in the day Daddy joined us for a quick lunch. When Liam saw Dad's root beer he remembered that he had one on the picnic table outside. He ran out to get it, and Bill cautioned him to blow in it first to make sure there were no bees. Uh-oh, right? So Liam blows in it, nothing happens and he take a big swallow, followed by a big scream, and "I blew in it, but it still got me!" Sure enough he got stung by a bee, right on the lip. We told him the story of when I got stung by a wasp inside my mouth, and the story of Larry's friend Oscar from veggie tales. Click the previous link to see Larry's story. Liam was very brave, and he pointed out that he is always brave, and mentioned the time he had to get his chin doctored up by Mom and Dad. When Liam was telling his Nana about the bee later he explained that the reason the bee bit him is he bit the bee first! He said "I was taking a drink and then I crunched this bee with my teeth and he stung me!" Eeeeeeeeewww!

A little later in the day Mo decided to climb up the back of a dining room chair, which of course tipped over and landed right on his forehead. You can't really see his bump, but it's right above his left eye. Poor Mo! As I was writing this Ezra knocked over the chair Mo was sitting on, throwing Mo across the room... no bumps yet, but I think we need to invest in a padded play room!

Thankyou Vanessa, so much for posting your Halloween, and Dorothy's dress so I could steal the picture and throw it on my blog.

This is Kelly, our Dorothy for Halloween. Doesn't she look awesome?

Happy Halloween!!!

Halloween was great! We didn't do as much this year as we did last year, but then again, I wasn't 7 months pregnant, dying of Disneyland legs by the end of the night last year either. We went to our ward Halloween Trunk or Treat party and won first place for "Best Family" in the costume contest. How can you go wrong with the "Wizard of Oz"? It's so cute, and everyone knows who the characters are. Bill was the wizard, you can't see it in the picture, but he had a big bull horn and he kept yelling "Bow down to the almighty Wizard". And other stuff. Somehow we never got Kelly on our camera at all, so hopefully Vanessa posts a picture or two so you can see Dorothy's dress. We did however meet 3 other Wendy's throughout our activities, and we got pictures with two of them. Isn't that little girl the cutest thing you've ever seen?
And this is "the stash".
