Trick or Treat

Tonight we took the kids trick or treating at Great Grandma's nursing home. All the residents sat in their doorways passing out candy to all the little ghosts & goblins. In our case a lady bug & shark.

Andrew had a shakey start but once he figured out to put the candy in the bucket rather than hold it all in his hands he did much better. By the end of the night he was taking the candy they handed him, then quickly reaching in their basket and grabbing a few more.

Disco Bowling

We had a blast "Disco Bowling" with the kids this weekend.

Cavs Game

Matt got season tickets to the Cleveland Cavaliers again this year. To kick off the season he & Sydney participated in the Benchwarmer Program. Before the game they got to sit on the Cavs bench and watch all of the players warm up. They even lined up for the pre game introductions of the team and high five'd all the Cavs players. Sydney also got an autograph and a picture with Scott Williams, Cavs TV announcer and former player. Her favorite part though was getting to hug the Cavs mascot, Moondog. Go Cavs!!!

18 Month Visit

Andrew had his 18 month check up today. He is now 21 lbs and 31 inches. He was in good spirits until the nurses came in....poor guy had 4 shots today. It doesn't seem to be the shots he hates, it's being pinned down to the table. After they were all finished and I picked him up he immediately stopped crying and laid his head on my shoulder. That always warms your heart!

Walking For A Cure

This morning Angie, David, Sydney and I walked in the Strides for Life Breast Cancer Walk in honor of MOM!!! She is now a 5 year survivor.

The walk begins at the Football Hall of Fame and makes the turn around at the President Mc Kinley Memorial. It's quite a hike up to the top but, like many others, Mom took the express route down. WE LOVE YOU MOM!

Pumpkin Patch

Today we went to Walsh Farms with our playgroup friends. They had a hay maze, petting farm, hayride, and a corn box which is like a sand box but with corn. Andrew didnt care for it much but Sydney made corn angels in it.

Sydney went her usual "Great Pumpkin Hunt". She spent about an hour walking up and down the field looking for just the right one. All the finalists were separated until the perfect one was selected. Andrew on the other hand was quite content sitting in the wagon eating cookies. When ever there is a food option that's where you will find him. :)

Children Say The Darndest Things

Sydney was watching TV this afternoon when a commercial for KY Warming Massage Jelly came on. She stood there locked into every word. Afterwards she turns to me and says "Mommy, you should get that K Jelly, Daddy can rub it on you". :) I couldn't help but burst into laughter. Kids say the darndest things!
