Halloween Visitors

For Halloween this year, my sister flew in from Phoenix. It was sooo much fun with her and her little girl here. She got here the day before Halloween and left this morning... (sniff). WE of course did tons of talking and catching up, did Halloween school parties, trunk-treating at the church, and regular trick-or-treating. We also went to Seattle, did lots of shopping, the beach, Pacific Science Center, etc. Why does the fun always have to come to an end? Now I am just sitting here in a big empty house wearing rice on my tux, wondering what happened to my life (what movie is that from??????)

I feel like the worst mom because I didn't get a picture of all my 3 kids together on Halloween, but I did manage to get a shot of them separately... Landon the Elephant and Miranda his cousin (in which they have a love hate relationship) the bee.
The baby elephant drinking a bottle (I know he is too old to drink a bottle, we are working on that one :)) Wesley the Ninja...
Sydnie, the ghost (in which she changed to a baby the next day for her school carnival and then the next day for trick-or-treat she was a ballerina) A pretty day in Seattle!!Nice view from the Space Needle, my first time going up!! It costs a mere $16.00 to go to the top! YIKES! At least I can say I have been to the top now!
Since we went to Seattle on Halloween day, we saw some interesting people/costumes. This guys was working at Pikes Place and offering apples to kids. Kinda scary, but Wes wasn't scared, probably because there was food involved.
We ate at a seafood place near Pikes Place. Here is Aaron "downing" an oyster for the first time. We weren't quite sure he would like them...all raw and slimy...The Verdict???? Thumbs UP! Now I need to work enough nerve up to try them!

Bahahaha! Thanks for the laugh. Anytime someone can incorporate a FOTB quote in, it makes my day. And the Baby Elephant... so hilar! I'm so jealous you got to have all that fun! Except for the oysters... bleh, that doesn't sound so fun:P (Hey did Aaron lose weight or something? He looks good!)

I was going to say FOTB as well, but you snooze...

Loved the elephant costume - especially with him drinking the bottle. The picture of Wes and the apple guy looks a ton like Ryan. I still think his face looks more like Brady, but he and Ryan look a TON a like in the profile.

I was going to ask about Aaron as well. He looks really thin in the pics (not that he was enormous by any stretch before.)

Fun that Karen was there.

Yah, Aaron has lost 20-25 lbs. He is training for a half marathon in SF in Dec.
