Halloween 2009

We had a wonderful Halloween this year. There is something magical when you look at your kids and witness such happiness going door to door. Almost every door, Mandy and I looked at each other and laughed as our kids were so excited. This year we all dressed up. We have never done this in the past, but we felt like it would be fun to do so. We also got invited to a Halloween party at our friends The Carrolls. Mandy went as a nurse. I went as Fred Flintstone. Eli as a Astronaut, Owen as a Monkey, and Isabelle as a Kitty Cat. We had a fun time at this party. We had dinner, raced goldfishes (yes, real goldfish) and played with the kids. After, we all went Trick-or-Treating in which the kids got enough candy to last them till next year. I almost forgot to note that Mandy made my entire costume. She did a wonderful job. I couldn't ask for a better friend. The costume was made so well, that it won first place in the costume contest this year. Thanks Honey!!
This is Eli's preschool teacher, Miss Redmond. He attends BitterRoot Elementary here in Billings. He absolutely loves school. He looks forward everyday in attending. His favorite part is PE at the end of the week. He looks forward to that everyweek. Miss Redmond is wonderful. Eli is so lucky to have her as a teacher this year.

This is Owen, fishin' at the school fishing pond at the Harvest Party.

Eli went through many costume choices this year. We wanted to be an Army guy, until we found him this Astronaut Suit. To be completely honest, I'm not even sure if it is an Astronaut suit. We found it at MRM. We told him it was and he was overjoyed. He wore this costume for the remainder of the month, everyday. He has such an imagination. He found masks, ski googles, winter hats, and gloves to use as his equipment.
