All Sorts of Parties!

Whew! What a weekend it's been. Last night we attended my sister-in-law's first annual Halloween Party on the River. It was really fun! Unfortunately, it turned into one of those bad dreams where you think it's a costume party so you dress accordingly, but you get there and it's really not. Actually, we were specifically TOLD it was a costume party, and we were the only ones COOL enough to dress up (except for the other 4 small children in attendance) and it wasn't very embarrassing at all. We did all end up taking off our costumes though; mine and Martin's were kind of too small and Anja got potatoes all over the front of hers. Here is what we were: Can you tell we're Goldilocks and the Three Bears? I think Martin made about the ugliest Goldilocks in history, but it was fun.

Then today was my Uncle Johnny's annual Fall Party up at his farm in Warren County. It's been loads of fun every year, but this year was the first time Martin's been able to go for the whole thing. Last year we went, but could only stay about an hour because he was going to Wisconsin that night. So this year was a really good time. Anja took a good long nap on the way up and stayed fairly happy for most of the time. We carved pumpkins, went on a little walk through his fields, ate a lot of good food and hung out with family. A good day!

I'll post more details and pictures tomorrow. For now, Martin said we can have a little family date (with a Starbucks gift card!) before he leaves for Indy. This is the last week of the travel season! Hoorah!

Today was great, wasn't it? These are the kind of times the kidders will remember forever.
I have to say.....I am SO GLAD Martin is not a girl. Mucho ugly.
Love, Mama
