lo they come

my family came down for halloween weekend for a brief stint of madness.  that made for 5 kids and 5 adults.  now that they are gone i’m still not quite sure what i should do about the kitchen.  i’m just going to think about that a little bit longer.  which i believe is called procrastination or perhaps only a very sensible fear for one’s own life.

grandma had fun taking the grand kids around the block to hand out homemade grape jelly and scarecrows.  they thought it was so much fun.  grandma thinks of everything.

daddy was mostly sick the whole weekend and used it as an excuse to lay low.  he’s pretty sly like that.

we got together with auntie piolet for halloween and here is the gang.  gideon and jehu went as pretty loose versions of thomson and thompson.  natalie did her hair in a giant cowlick after this picture and was a little more convincing as tintin.

and even though nobody knew who thomson and thompson were, the general consensus was that they were pretty handsome.  of course.

jael, on the other hand, had to go as the much dreaded chicken.  a costume that has so far succeeded in putting every one of my children into a state of traumatic shock.

it’s going to become a family tradition.

now i just have to think of what to do with all that candy.  i think we should sell it to tractor papa and buy legos before i am forced to eat all of it.  i just can’t live like this.

    Family gathering are always more fun than any one should really have. Very cute costumes. Also, I don’t know who Thompson and Thompson are.
