Saturday night we went to the hayride @ the Miller's. Pictured above: the Yoder gals Alma, Erma and Velma a.ka....Andrea, Brandie and Ivana..... who laughed almost the entire time. (not pictured-Herma Yoder, who incidentally is kinda a hermit!) Kyndall rode in the tractor with Brian and Micca. They accidentally broke out the back glass of the tractor during the ride but no major injuries were sustained unless you count some glass down Brian's pants!! Luckily Micca had a blanket she quickly covered Kyndall with.... Thank goodness! Claire and Keaton got to each have one-on-one time of their own. Keaton with Angel and Joe and Claire with granmom. I am sure they loved having all the attention to themselves!
Somehow I ended up chaperoning the church youth at the sleepover after the hayride with the rest of the Yoder clan and laughed all night long hysterically. We attempted to sing and dance and take silly pictures(see above) like we were 16 again. Which we quickly found out the next day we are not. 1 hour sleep is for the birds when you are past 25! However, I can do the Soulja Boy and Cupid Shuffle now, which I just know will be useful later in life!
I attempted to take Kyndall's picture on our porch before heading to trunk or treat @ church. Still have no tricks to make a two year old smile or look directly at the camera at the same time! SHEW!
Then I watched the two most adorable babies dress up as a lady bug (Claire) and a monkey (Keaton) and enjoy their first Halloween adventure! They stayed at the trunk with granmom handing out candy and of course being oohed and aahed over!
Miraculously I got a photo of all three of my kiddos looking in somewhat the same direction towards the camera. Note to self: if all other photo options fail you may see this on our Christmas card come December! Kyndall had a great time going around and collecting treats from everyone. She was thrilled that her buddy Jacob (Brittany's BF) showed up to see her and hung out with them most the rest of the evening.
Kyndall and Keaton both won prizes in the costume contests! I was so proud! Claire was just as happy as the winners because she got to be passed around and loved on by several different folks!
And that is about it. I am only posting this so quickly so that my MIL can see some photos at school tomorrow. I should be using this moment of free time to start chores. But here I sit. In other news all three kiddos are sick with the yucks...runny nose, cough, sore throat. So we will be making a visit to Dr. Patty bright and early tomorrow @ 9:15. I know to most of you that doesn't sound early, but to someone who has to wake, dress and feed 3 kids and get them to B.G. trust me it is!
I promise to try to do better about blogging. Most of you loyal readers have fussed at me. I have been kind of on a slow start since getting back to my trip. But in my defense last week was tragic, crazy and hectic all wrapped into one. And well, with sick kids, you know how that goes. But I will try to do better! Everyone have a good week and be sure to tell the ones you love just that! :)
