There's No Crying At Soccer

It’s Wednesday night and we are watching the Bar Mitzvah video!  It’s great and looks so amazing. It’s like looking through a window. 

Last Wednesday, Ariel got up super early, like 6, and was playing an online game with Peyton.  We told her she couldn't do that anymore.  
Speaking of Peyton, it was a half day of school, poor Amy, and Peyton walked back with Ariel.  Ariel called me begging for Starbucks so I had it delivered.  
The twins tried on their costumes. 

Peyton and Ariel put on a show.  Eli did the announcing.  
Sleepy afternoon.  
Thursday morning, Aden dropped the pasta.  
The boys were silly before school.  Set up a ramp to roll down.  
I saw these shirts at a store.  They are fake so how are they able to sell them?
Dani came for cheer.  
Good handstand Ariel!

Soccer practice.  
Eli did well.  Noah not so much.  It didn't help that he was tired but he needs to be able to control his emotions.  A kid kicked his ball away from him and he had a total meltdown.  Couldn't function for a whole half hour even though I tried to distract him.  

Eventually he got back out there.  The coach is a saint.  
Nice sunset!

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.
