And, an obligitory photo from everyone's* favorite holiday. Sadie is Velma from Scooby Doo, Allison is Frankie Stein (Frankenstine's daughter), and Grant is IronMan. Uh huh.

*It's actually one of my least favorite. But it's so commercilized that my kids would totally miss the chance to dress up and eat lots of candy. So, here's the obligitory photo. Mostly because my kids are so cute. There's an awful lot of things I'm willing to do for these three angels.

October is birthday month. Two-thirds of our kids were born in October. Here's some photos of their celebrations for 11 years and 6 years!

Men At Work

We had road construction on our street this summer. It started on April 11 when the crumbling pavement heaved and showed signs of a broken pipe. We called the city and they posted 4 construction cones around the area.

As we found out, they were in no hurry to get the work done. But because my son was fully entertained by any construction activity on our street, I didn't complain. Street workers were my son's source of summer "fun".

We took photos as events progressed, and Grant loved every minute of it. The last of the equipment and construction workers left our street on October 20... more than 6 months from when they started. :)

The day the road was completed, the kids celebrated by riding their bikes and scooters on the smooth pavement. I was just happy to drive on an unobstructed street-- and was thankful for the hours of time my son enjoyed watching.
