The Fly

I don't know why but I get a bit into Halloween. For the past few years we have had a theme the kids dress up in and this year happened to be "There was an old lady who swallowed a fly". This is a story the kids and I have read a number of times everyone found a character that fit them. Since we spend out Halloween evening trick or treating at the grandma's and great grandma's houses we decided that we would have them play the "old lady" for us. As you can see we had the cute little fly (Luke), the spider (David), the bird (me), the cat (Rose), the dog (stuffed), the cow (Paul), and the horse (Mary). Now you might wonder why medical personal is present for this theme. The old lady story ends with her dying since she swallowed a horse and Simon didn't like this ending. So to solve this he decided to be the surgeon that would save the old lady's life by taking all the animals our of her. What a thoughtful young man.
 Here are the pictures we gathered through the night with all our "old ladies".

One final group shot hanging out on the quad track. What a good looking bunch.
 The day after Halloween is my youngest Luke's birthday. He made such a cute little fly for Halloween and at our last stop for the night at my in laws he got his first birthday present. His own loader tractor and it is red like dad's. Luke was ecstatic to have his own loader. He has been using his big brothers tractors and had all but worn them out.
Here is a  collection of cute Luke pic from over the year. He has grown up so fast and become such a little man. Happy Birthday Luke. I love you.

  1. Thank you! I found your site looking for plans on how to build a playhouse. I love what you are doing with your lives. It is our plan as well as soon as we retire from military life. Our children will be teenagers by then, but we will have plenty of time for grandchildren and the influence it will bring to them. Thank you again!
