Happy Halloween!

Yesterday was such a fun day! In the morning, Ava and I went with some friends to Mother Nature's Farm. We saw some farm animals (and Ava kept singing "Ee-I-ee-I-OOHH"...She sure does love "Old MacDonald!), went on a hayride, and then Ava picked out a pumpkin to decorate.
Later that afternoon, we enjoyed spending some family time together because David came home early from work!! (This is a truly rare event!) The swim school closed for business at about 3:00 in the afternoon, so David got to come home and relax for a bit before the night's festivities began. Just before nightfall, we went to the McCook's for some yummy chili and cornbread, and then set out for trick-or-treating! Ava wasn't too happy about things at first, but soon warmed up to the idea of CANDY, CANDY, CANDY!
By the time we got to Grandma and Papa Tait's house, Ava was on a sky-high sugar high. It was pretty funny to see her hysterically laughing and playing with her cousins. On the way home, she was quietly murmuring "Night-night" in the backseat. Even she knew that it was time to go home and crash! :)

Ummm, I cannot believe my son is picking his nose in that first picture. Oh my gosh! We sure had a blast at the farm though, boogies and all. Gross!

Hello Kim and Dave! I was so glad to stumble onto your blog.

For some reason, it's like Christmas when I find my old AZ peeps. I get so excited to see what everyone is up to.

Your daughter is super cute. And congratulations on the one on the way.
