Halloween 2007

By time Halloween came this year, the kiddos had already been wearing their costumes for a few weeks. But they were still excited about TorT. Noah would exclaim "Next House!" after they received their loot and they were both ready to head home after a few blocks. We made them plug along (free candy, man!) until we had a least one Heath bar and a bag of Whoppers. He-he, just kidding. Sort of =)

Kari's Halloween Party 2007

Kari's class party was on Halloween. They participated in a costume parade and then consumed a lot of snacks. Rick read to the class and then the students had centers time. It was neat to be able to be in class.

Trick or Treating @ Whole Foods 2007

The Whole Foods store was hosted a night of Trick or Treating. We got to go to different sections of the store, try organic treats and see carved pumpkins. The different sections were having a contest and we voted for the seafood department. We also got to hear a story by Chef Francine and have dinner with the Schindlers.

Yesterday was a bit hard on this Momma's heart. I finally took Noah to a PT to have his toe walking issue evaluated. Seems his muscle to...
