Before the weather around here became polar/sub-arctic (!), I was able to use this co-pilot on the back of my bike and take the kids with me to exercise.  It was a blast!  :)

Random Picture Time

Eli learned about responsibility and service recently when we found 2 shopping carts in our neighborhood.  We like our neighborhood, but we don't like the one behind us, whose occupants cut through our neighborhood to go to the store and abandon their carts on their way back home!  Argh!  So it was really nice of Chris to say "Ok, I'm walking these carts back.  Anyone want to come?"  Eli was jumping up and down, "Me!  Me!"  and apparantly got the benefit of a little ride.

Thought I'd Post The Halloween Pictures Before CHRISTMAS Rolls Around!!!!

They were obviously Tinkerbell and Peter Pan. They LOVED their costumes. Mia's wings and wand lit up. They had never seen the Disney movie Peter Pan! So we rented it, and that was their Halloween activity after trick or treating. That last photo is Mia's preschool class (no Halloween costumes at Eli's school! They don't let them celebrate it!). The funny thing is in that tall pumpkin stack, was the school's janitor, Mr. Jerry! He stood really still & quiet, then when the kids weren't suspecting, he'd move & make ghost sounds. So funny!
