All Dressed Up

We spent Halloween this year Trick-or-Treating at the Hospital on-post. Who wants to trick-or-treat outside in sub-zero weather? Not I. Turns out there were a lot of stations for the kids to stop at and they made a big haul even though the hospital isn't that large.

The DENTAC's station. The kids got spider rings here.

One of the departments had Star Wars costumes. Love it!

Ready for a sugar high? They are! What a cute robot, ladybug, and scary witch! It was fun to have some friends with us too.

Fun in the Snow

We got our first snowfall in mid-October this winter and the kids have really enjoyed it. (At least until the 40 below temperatures we've been having this week anyway.)

Kimberly's favorite activity, since Fairbanks snow isn't that great for snowmen, is to make snow angels. This is one of her first of the year.

Glade is an all-around happy guy that is pretty much up for anything. Turns out it's hard to push Libby around in the stroller with snow on the ground.

Liberty is finally old enough to enjoy the snow this year. She always says, "Coldy! Coldy! Coldy!" when we go out to the van in the mornings to go to the bus stop. :)

Pumpkins Galore!

We had a great time carving pumpkins this year with some new friends. Here's a crazy picture of the kids!

What the jack-o-lanterns looked like in the dark.
It was a great evening!


I had the opportunity to travel to Arizona by myself in September to attend my sister's sealing. It was such a nice trip. It was nice to not have to worry about kids in airports and on airplanes. It was so wonderful to see my family and share the joy on my sister's happy day. I did take the camera, but didn't manage to take many pictures. It was fun to celebrate a nephew's birthday while there and stay a night with my brother's family. Also, I loved that my friend Karen took time to drive up to Seattle to see me on my layover there. Such a great trip! Thanks to my sweet husband who made it possible for me to go by keeping the kids happy and healthy while I was gone.

Oh, and by the way, it turns out September in Arizona is still very hot. I have forgotten what it is like, having not lived there for quite a few years.
