We have a very excited girl in our house. The tooth fairy visited last night which caused a whole new level of excitement this morning. Aidyn came barreling down the hallway, "I got money!" 10 seconds later Nolan came running "Give me money too!" Ah, the joy of children.

The kids made their gingerbread house (and ate half of the candy in the process).
We mixed up a big batch of homemade hot chocolate mix and even made homemade marshmallows to go with it. They are tasty, but a bit tedious to cut up. I don't think I'll be making those again.
Here's a little holiday cheer to get you through the day...

Nolan requested we have some music on this morning while Aidyn was at school. He stood in front of the TV and got his groove on for about 20 minutes. It was so cute! Here's a little clip of him enjoying some Aly & AJ. Notice the rockin' arm move shortly into the show.
(Also, please disregard the pile of towels on the chair next to him...waiting to be folded. I have other things to do, like blog.)

The tree looks just beautiful and there are a few presents under it already. The presents have created many questions such as "When can we open those presents?" "When can we open those presents?" "When can we open those presents?" "When can we open those presents?" "When can we open those presents?" You get the picture...
Even though it was a short visit, we enjoyed seeing them and had lots of fun hanging out with them.

Notice how at the end of the recording the camera starts moving and then sort of falls off to the side? Shortly after I started recording, Nolan began swinging his church backpack. I reached over and tried to get him to stop. He didn't. At the end of the recording when the camera falls off to the side...that is when Nolan launched his backpack across the front of the church. It was one of those times I was thrilled that we let the kids pick where to sit and they chose the 2nd row. Oh well, we had a great seat to enjoy Aidyn's lovely singing and most of the congregation got a laugh out of Nolan's antics.

We went out with our friends Alana & Sean. It's always more fun collecting candy with friends.
When we got home, the feast began. Mostly for Jeff & I because we pigged out on the kids candy after they went to bed. Shameless, I know. Oh well!!
Both kids had so much fun last night. We hit more houses than we have in the past because it was such a beautiful night. We had 80 trick or treaters at our house, which is quite a decline from past years but that's OK. It just means more leftovers for us!!
We hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!!!
