Everything but Christmas

I wouldn't want you to miss out on all of this good stuff before I post Christmas so here's a few from Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Too cute in their Halloween costumes.

The ever fun donut on a string at Grandma Jeanene's Halloween party - I think Jack's method is more effective.

I made a fun Halloween dinner for us (John helped too) with bug hot dogs, spiderweb dipping sauce, a scary sea serpent sandwich, and melting witch pudding. Lets just say the kids were not as impressed as I wanted them to be, but I thought everything was cool.

I forgot to take pics of our Thanksgiving feast (I'm sure Sara did though, so maybe if she reads this she can send me some:-), but we had a great meal at John's parents with about 40 friends and family. John had us all eating as fast as possible so we could head to the sand dunes. We spent the rest of the weekend there with lots of fun, great weather and the only injury was suprisingly not from riding. Jack got hit in the head with a shovel. We thought he might need stitches, but thankfully nurse Donna assured us he'd be ok without them.
