On Sunday evening we went to Atlanta to see the Wiggles. This was the second time the boys had seen them but the first for the girls. All of our kids like the Wiggles so this was a great time for all of them. Heath and Eli knew what to expect but the girls had no idea. Both of them were so excited when that Big Red Car came out. They all danced and had a great time.

Heath and I were invited to his school's Mother/Son Hoe-Down. The PTO was sponsoring this evening for mothers and sons to spend some time together doing something fun. The PTO was very prepared for the fact that the boys wouldn't want to dance much. One of the other mothers commented that she didn't realize that the boys would already be in the mind-set of not wanting to dance at such a young age. The had stick-horse races, Pin the boot on the cowboy, Panning for Gold, Hula-Hooping, and Roasting marshmallows set up all around the gym. We had a great dinner of hotdogs and baked beans and then we watched the dance team do the Boot-scootin' Boogie. After all of that the boys did do a few line dances. Heath seemed to have really good time and it was fun to spend time with him.

This is my Chloe! I wanted a girl so bad that I could dress up and wear hair bows and she would rather be a boy! She is as brave as they come and she will climb anywhere her brothers climb. The only thing she hasn't done is climb out of her bed (thank heaven). She loves to wear her brothers hats, capes, and even shoes. She loves backpacks and is always trying to put one of their backpacks on. She is definitely a tom-boy. Maybe she will grow out of it! If not, Caroline likes being "girlie".
We had a very fun Halloween. Heath has been begging for the past couple of years to go trick-or-treating. We usually go to a fall festival at church and so therefore we don't go trick-or-treating. Our new church had a festival but it was the weekend before so we had the chance to go trick-or-treating this year. We first went to our local Publix grocery store. They had Halloween activities for the children. We first got to have our pic made with the clown in the hay/pumpkin display. They each got a coloring book and crayons. In the bakery they had a large ghost with his mouth open that the children got to throw donut holes into. In the produce department they had a tic-tac-toe game. In the dairy section they had a fishing game. The kids really enjoyed it and even the girls got to play the games! We then went home to eat dinner and then trick-or-treat. We only did our street and two more cul-de-sacs because we had enough candy and Eli and the girls were beginning to poop out from all that walking. Heath could have walked the entire neighborhood! We had fun and you can see we had two very brave "Bible Men" and two cute Minnie Mouses!
