Decorating for Halloween

These are from last Monday and Tuesday.  I'm still having computer problems so it's hard making these posts!

Last Monday, Eli grabbed the rest of the Halloween stuff from the basement.  
And dragged it upstairs.  
He got busy!
Aden helped plant the mums.
Good job Eli!
Up to the school.  
Winter stay away!
Last Tuesday, Pat the piano/guitar teacher returned for the first time since Covid!  I had a 45 minute guitar lesson, then Noah had a 15 minute piano lesson.  
Noah is really excited about this.  Today he said Eli should start an instrument so they can have a band!
Notice the green ghost.  
Brotherly love.
Eli read to us a little.  
Ariel tried on her costume!
So silly!

Jake's Party at Funzilla

Last Saturday afternoon, we put up some more Halloween decorations.  Amy thinks it's enough already but the kids really like it.  
Then we went to Melissa's for dinner.  
It was great to see everyone and hang.  

Ariel gave Gwen her first cheer outfit.  It looked so cute! Was Ariel really that small?
Eli went next door to check out the scary decorations.  
On Sunday, we had Jake's 5th birthday party at Funzilla.  
The twins were so excited.  

Win us some candy Noah!

They did everything!

They are great climbers.  
Ariel hung out with Alex.  

I took Ariel for a drive.  
It's not your birthday yet Eli!

There's the birthday boy.  
Happy Birthday Jake!
That night I made steak.  It was raining so I couldn't grill so I broke out the cast iron pan.  


Away Game

It's Monday morning.  Sorry I'm late with the post.  Having computer problems.  This past weekend was so busy, I have never been so excited for a Monday before!  Last Saturday was also busy.  Amy had a drawing contest with the twins early.  

Then Dani and Linds came over to cheer with Ariel.  
We moved outside to do some stunting.  

Ariel lost her confidence a bit with going up but she's getting it back.  Love this pic!
She's flying!

Dani did a handstand for us.  
Then it was soccer time for the twins.  Ariel kept Logan busy.  
They had enough kids to break into 2 teams.  Eli and Noah played on different teams and did really well!  They both were very involved and almost scored!  

Rachel was in from Penn State!  She was there to watch her brother play.  So good to see her!
Great job Eli!
Amy took the boys for a walk later.  
I took Ariel to an away cheer game.  

I guess we should learn how to do her bow.

Nice kick Ariel!
Then she got to go up.  

She's happy to not be the shortest on the team.  

Up in the pyramid!

They did their halftime routine for the other team.
