Courtesy of Memaw and Papa Ober for Halloween, the kids were treated to a night at Toys R Us picking out some new goodies. On the way home, Max fell asleep in the car and and didn't get a chance to play when he got home. Lucky for us, he woke up bright and early wanting to see his new stuff. Here is what our morning consisted of:
Every animal in the kingdom had breakfast with us.
And, there's just enough of them that if Violet runs away with a couple, he'll never know!
Today was Max's Halloween party at school. At the end of his party, the class got to walk outside and trick-or-treat from all the parents' trunks. With beautiful weather, the kids seemed to have a blast walking from trunk to trunk.

We decided to empty Max's piggy bank over the weekend to see how much he had accumulated in his three short years. And the bank was becoming heavier and heavier with not a lot of jingle (I'm sure thanks to Grampy!) We were happy and shocked to discover it was a lot more than we had thought.
There is a 50 cent piece still stuck that Nick wanted to hammer out, but since Max's piggy bank is just too darn cute to shatter, we decided against it.
We plan on taking all the change to the bank to be counted and sorted. But as of now, the total is over $150!
Nick took the lead on the pumpkin carving this year when he saw my free-hand outline of a moon and stars. I guess the Star of David and a banana-shaped moon didn't make the cut. Let's hope the kids do not inherit my artistic skills!
