Happy Trunk or Treating!!!


What a couple of cute witches. They both wanted to be the same thing. So today we went searching for costumes. After realizing that even with 60% off the costumes were still going to be over $30 we went to goodwill. 

This is Ben and his friend Anthony.
 This year in english they read The Outsiders. They decided to be Greasers for Halloween.
They were surprised that I was able to get their hair like that and make the bruises.
 I guess I am still a cool mom!

Chris and Natalie Seivert called Baxter today to set this up.
We have Michael with his burned foot from the Foreman grill.
Jim you can have him regular Jim or three hole punch Jim.
Last but not least an adorable Pam.

This was our decorated trunk. 
The boys were going for the win.
But someone else won. Maybe next year!!!!

Canoe Trip in October????

Baxter's school went on a canoe trip to practice their observation skills that they have been learning. They also taught them orienteering. This has to be one of the awesome things about the school that he goes to. They just don't sit in a class room to learn they actually put to use the things that they are being taught!

These are Baxter's friends Mason Waynes, Macie Wright, and Steven Kopera. This was after the canoe trip. Those Boys just soaked poor Macie!
Baxter digging for the hidden treasure that they never found.
Happy to be canoeing. This is on Pike Creek which empties into Lake Michigan. He got comments on what a good rower he was. All those years at scout camp finally paid off!
Baxter and Courtney going down the river.

I was just tagged  by Sharlon. I actually like that one. I have already done it. I thought about reposting it but decided that if any one really wants to see it they can go to May and check it out. I am waiting for Brian's camera which Baxter took on a field trip so I can post more pictures.

It happens to be Cassie's 5th birghday. 
As you can tell she is quite happy to be receiving presents. Everybody else in our family has a birthday in the first part of the year. So it seems to Cassie that her birthday will never come. So when it finally does in true Cassie fashion it has to be a pretty big ordeal.

To all of you out there waiting anxiously on the end of your seats to hear the outcome of Ben here goes. The Dr. said that there is no fracture in the growth plate which is good news. He did however say something about it seperating. The solution is no football for 2 weeks and he needs to stay off his feet as much as possible. He has to take anti inflamatories for 2 weeks then it is back to the Dr. to hopefully get the ok to play football. We shall see!

By the way Sera! When are you going to get a blog?
