David insisted that all 4 children be in the Halloween picture.
So I honored his request reluntantly.
Pregnancy fat face is oh so unattractive.
And my hair could definitely use a visit to Jen's.
I sucked up my pride and let the not so little fetus join the photo.

Reduce Reuse Recyle
Our Halloween theme
We spent no money on costumes this year as you can probably tell.
Noah told me he was fine with using his Darth Vader costume from last year.
He used masking tape to fix the cape that was torn.
Ella Joy was easy since she doesn't like clothes we just found a tutu and some wings and decided she would be a butterfly fairy.
JuJu is a black-eyed pea--thanks for the great idea KiKi

When it rains it floods and the kids have the best time playing in the puddles and rain pools

Sword fighting with bats

I must admit when I walked outside my first thought was: they're wearing helmets, what smart kids I have.

Giving JuJu love before her vacation with my mom and KiKi

After watching an episode of Sid the Science Kid
where they taught about how food decomposes,
EJ wanted to draw rotten food.
It was very important to her that the colors were right.
So we have a black banana, a brown apple, and a grey and green pumpkin.
She said, "they are so beautiful, we have to hang them above your bed."

It has been a month...

It has been a month since my last post.
Can you tell I am in complete survival mode.
I am huge and uncomfortable and hope that baby will come early.
Julia took a vacation to my mom's.
I miss her and can't wait to see her.
But I sure have gotten a lot done--like getting Baby #4's 2 drawers and corner ready for her.
Each child's space is getting smaller and smaller--JuJu at least had her own closet.
Hopefully daddy will get a job soon and we can expand from our 800 square feet.
I dream of extra rooms.
We are all excited and looking forward to baby's arrival.
Promise to post some pictures soon!
