Happy Halloween and a dead bird

People here in Texas know how to celebrate Halloween. This is Halloween party #1. You can see Theo with his pink bucket. He is next to the M& M kid.
Halloween party #2 at the library.
We went outside and they had a girl throwing fire. Theo said that was his favorite part.
I could only take so many Halloween parties so we took a break for a few days. This is a pic before Halloween party #3 in which they received so much candy we actually didn't go out, door to door. Theo chose the pink Easter bucket over his skeleton.

DEAD bird. These poor birds keep flying into our windows, killing themselves. I think this is the 3rd or 4th bird that Jared has had to take off of our patio. Maybe we should start a bird cemetery.

Texas and Michigan

Okay, if anyone wants to come see us during the State Fair, it is pretty cool. Well, we had a great time and we found out how to get in at a discount rate.

They had a great petting farm/zoo. Theo loved it. Here is the Emu waiting for the food.
A camel. They have really large tongues. They also had a zebra, giraffe, ostriches, and a four horned sheep. Have you ever petted or fed a giraffe?
Then they had the cutest little farm experience for the kids.

BACK in Sept. (sorry, I should have posted sooner) we went to MI. We had a lot of fun. Thank you, thank you to Grama and Pop-pop for all that they did for us. And thank you to our cousins, siblings, and in-laws for meeting us there. We really had a great time with everyone.

Theo loved helping Pop-pop give Mac a bath. My husband says, "Poor Mackinaw."
We went to a county fair nearby Kzoo and this exhibit was my favorite, the birthing exhibit. I don't think I have every really seen a chick hatch from its egg.
The kids loved checking out the tractors and lawn mowers.
We went to a cider mill. I have one word for that place, YUMMY! Great doughnuts and cider. I must also add that our kids have some pretty cute cousins.
Thanks Gigi for loving our kids!
We also got to go to a MI game. It was a lot of fun. Theo looked at this pic and said, "Oh, you look so cute." So, I posted it. Is it bad that I am influenced by a 3 year-old's opinion?
