Jumping in the leaves

I love the fall. Even Tessa got in on the fun of jumping in the leaves this year.

Well, we have fought it as long as possible. We are now actually going to have to join the rest of the world and try our best to become computer savvy. Honestly, just emailing a picture can be more complex than we can handle at times, so we will do our best. We have loved being able to read Dave and Jessie's blogs and see their pictures, so we decided to jump on the bandwagon and create a blog for us as well. Our hope is that we will now be able to stay better in touch with all those that we love.

Halloween around here was a lot of fun. Emma dressed up as a pirate, Lincoln was a black ghoul with red eyes that would glow and then disappear, Sam was a blue power ranger (and he already plans on being a red power ranger next year), and Tessa was a bumblebee. Ted used to have nightmares when he was little that he had forgotten to go trick-or-treating, so when it came time to take the kids trick-or-treating, there was no delay in him getting the kids out the door to make sure they gathered as much loot as possible (the more there is, the more he can raid their bags!). When all the kids came home they had more candy than we had ever imagined. Lincoln weighed his pillowcase to see how much candy he had, and he had 6.4 pounds!! We have already had to put a serious limit on the quantity allowed each day.

Several people in our neighborhood wonder why we don't pass out toothbrushes -- bad for business we tell them. Maybe we should pass out jolly ranchers next year?
