Gobble Baby Gobble Baby Gobble

We sure are dancing around our house a lot lately..the kiddos have learned to do the "wobble" and instead of singing Wobble Baby....we sing Gobble...its much more festive. I am not really sure what the wobble is either so I am hoping that encouraging them to say Gobble as they shake their shoulders and sway (picture one of those big tube shaped figures that has air blowing up it that you see on top of buildings announcing sales) also more socially acceptable :).

7th grade Community Service Day at Hope Farm in Fort Worth...see my Goober helping? He worked hard that day!

We also made posters for their upcoming fall festival.

We DID IT!!! We hosted the first annual neighborhood fall festival. We blockaded the street (with permission from our police of course), set up games, face painting, popcorn, photo booths, a potluck food area and invited everyone within our little area to come hang!!! It was a success, more people could have come, but those who came were energetic and eager to meet neighbors. We formed bonds and I will be glad to say that we now know that the "couple who always walk the little dog have names like Jim and Denise and "two boys who are always in the road and love football" are Rocko and Lucas. I am also no longer "that women who runs at the ungodly time every morning"...or "that couple with all the kids"...we promised the all that while we have kids running around our home at all times that we only claim 3 of them....hehe.

The best compliment I got all night though was from our neighbors who we already knew fairly well but hadn't had the faith conversation with yet. She said " you are a christian right?, I thought you were but after tonight I'm pretty sure you are".....YES!!!!!! She is too!!!!

Pumpkin Patch field trip with PK4. The sweet girl in the pink bow is Collins, who we have mentioned and asked you to pray for. The day after this trip they discoverd two more cancerous tumors in her left lung.

Watching this was stinkin hilarious!

Sweet PK4 class.

I love this little pumpkin the most!!!

The sweetest part of our neighborhood fall festival was when Mr. Adam and his wife Millie, who are both in thier late 80s led the whole group through the singing of God Bless America...two rounds...while we honored the Veterans in our neighborhood. Millie, who is normally in a wheelchair, demanded to stand and stayed standing until we had recited the Pledge of Allegiance as well. We were all in tears at how proud Mr. Adams was...he asked us to pray for our was fantastic.

Me and the hubs got away for to attend the wedding of a friend that Adam grew up with in Alabama. It was beautiful!

Great run with for my next marathon has been a butt kicker. We had great times the after effects can be brutal.

Hehe, I found this picture after I let Little Man play a game on my phone during our American Heritage Girls meeting.

Our friend James after a fun baseball game!

The kids had the most fun at the fall festival as they road their bikes and scooters up and down the road for the first time without having to worry about cars!!! They were little sweaty messes and slept hard!!! I love feeling so secure in our neighborhood now and creating a neighborhood directory that will allow us to have peace of mind even if we were out of town.

Collins had surgery to remove more tumors from her left lung..this will be her second round to fight cancer. Ribbit and Little Man kept her entertained before got pushed back 3 hours so they were grateful for some distractions!

Field trip to the Sistine Chapel Exhibit at the State Fair with 10th grade. It was fabulous!

We now get 4 white eggs and one brown egg a day....The brown egg is a prize for sure!

Pumpkin patch trip with American Heritage Girls!
Corn Maze with all the girls!

Other than that we have outdone ourselves with costumes this weekend already..and its just now HALLOWEEN today. Of course, they don't want to wear what I made them more than once so we have worn at least 12 different costumes to all the different trunk o treats, fall festivals and Reformation Day parties we have attended. Good thing those kiddos are cute.
Goober of course is way past the cute costumes and you would have thought that I bought him a sports car when I handed him his very own package of fake scars and blood to wear with his "scary black star wars outfit".
Look at his puffed up chest as he shows off his Daniel Sticker....this was a HUGE deal for my little man and we are so proud of him!!!

Hanging out with Champ at Donuts with Dad!
Happy Halloween or Reformation Day or Trick O Treat or whatever you choose to do today!!!
