Pumpkin Carving

We have made it a tradition to carve pumpkins the night before Halloween. Lance and Will did most of the work. The pumpkins turned out great. Will's is a pirate ship, Frances' is a sad pumpkin, Lance's is a spider, and mine is a singing pumpkin.

The kids posing with the singing pumpkin.

Will is so proud of his pirate ship.

Halloween at the YMCA

The YMCA had a Halloween party for all of the kids here in Steuben county, and I think most of them showed up. There were lots of games for all of the kids, including bobbing for apples. Now, with the New Superbug spreading throughout the country, do you really think parents would let their kids participate in this game? Well, guess again, lots of parents and kids went for it; GROSS. Frances was a little freaked out with all of the costumes. Will, of course enjoyed all of it. We ended the night with the haunted walk. I actually got spooked.

May the force be with you!

Pumpkin Spice isn't afraid of Storm Trooper..

Frances was not cooperating with her costume.

Chillin with the Stockgirls

It was a late Saturday night and the kids were worn out. They relaxed with a movie, Shrek, while the parents enjoyed some adult conversation. Frances and Caroline were sleeping like babies.

Gymnastic B-Day Party

Will was invited to a gymnastics birthday party last weekend. He looks like he is the only boy, but their were two other boys who are not in the photo. He had a great time with all of his little friends and is becoming quite the gymnast. His forward roll is getting much better. I have enrolled him in the gymnastics program, boys only, and he seems to love it. Watch out Mitch Gaylord; for those of you who use to watch gymnastics in the Olympics, back in the 80s.

Birthday Party at the Pumpkin Patch

Caroline Stock had her first birthday party at the pumpkin patch. All of the kids had a great time. There was a maze made of hay, a hayride, a petting zoo, and a corn maze. The lunch and cake were wonderful. You know the Krebs' family; we love cake. Will had two pieces of cake, thanks to Molly and Frances ate her entire piece.

Just like a picture from a Sadie Hawken's Dance!

Hey Will, which way should we turn?

Viva Las Vegas

Lance and I went on vacation to Las Vegas with Todd and Melyssa Stock. The kids enjoyed their vacation with Grammy and Papa Krebs. We had a great time in Sin City and actually came home with some extra cash; a great way to end a vacation. Enjoy the photos.
