Did I mention that we have company. Oh yeah, that too.
Never a dull moment.....
Just to spice things up a bit, Sam and Alice both decided to run for school office. Sam ran for president and Alice ran for vice-president. Sam and his VP running mate won. Better luck next year, Alice! They both gave great speeches in front of the whole school. I was one proud mama bear.
We carved pumpkins a bit early this year. Everybody loves this tradition...
except for Paige.
This shot may or may not give an accurate picture of how Sam really felt.
We have also been super busy sewing Halloween costumes. Paige will (obviously) be a slice of non-vegan pizza, Alice will be going as a banana (not the easiest costume ever), Mason is stylin' as a cookie and Sam will be a swimmer being eaten by a shark. Scott and I will be dressed as ski/bike shop owners. Imaginative, I know.
This is the sneak peek to Sam's 11th birthday. He was blessed to have Grandma, Papa and Uncle Tom here for his big day. More pictures to follow and I promise that post will be before 2013.
