Pledge of Allegiance

Trick or Treat!

Lily and Dylan had so much fun trick or treating! Lily was a beautiful witch, and Dylan was Batman. Dylan wore his mask almost the whole time, only taking it off in between some of the houses. He always put it on before heading up to a door with Lily. They got a ton of candy, and Lily gave Daddy everything sour.

Pumpkin Carving

Lots of pictures from carving our jack-o-lantern... Lily LOVED the pumpkin guts, but Dylan didn't like the gooey stuff at all.  It was fun to carve our witch, and the kids were very happy with the finished product!

Dylan with the Easel

This is the first time Dylan used the easel to create a masterpiece! He was very proud of himself, painting at the easel like a big boy.

Surprising sleeping arrangement

I already regret not taking a picture of this... I just went upstairs to check on the kids before I go to sleep. Dylan was sleeping peacefully on his back, with his little head on his pillow, in much the same position as when I tucked him into bed a few hours ago. When I opened Lily's door, however, it took me a few moments to figure out what was going on. I wasn't overly surprised to see her pillow without her sweet head, as she has always moved around a lot in her sleep. You're just as likely to find her sideways at the foot of the bed as with her head on the pillow. But what surprised me at first was that her breathing was coming from the right side of the room, not straight ahead of me where the bed is. During rest time in the afternoon, she will sometimes fall asleep on the floor while trying desperately to fight sleep. But at bedtime she generally falls asleep in her bed. But NOT tonight! So as my eyes adjusted to the dim light, I focused on the area near the window and realized that she was actually sleeping on TOP of her NIGHTSTAND! She was sprawled out on her tummy across the top, with her head turned to the side, resting her cheek on the hard surface and her arms hanging over each side. Her legs dangled over the back, with her toes just slightly reaching her mattress on the bed right behind her. She was sleeping so soundly, I almost hated to move her! I have no idea why in the world she decided to climb onto the nightstand in the first place, let alone go to sleep there. It will be interesting to see if she remembers being there when I ask her about it in the morning - she didn't stir at all when I moved her to the bed. Sweet, silly girl of mine!
