Here are the kids BEFORE candy!
Key Lime Pie and Lemon Drop are "PRETENDING" to sleep.
They can't fool me!
I told Jalapeno to dress up... I even splurged and got him a skunk costume!
He wore it! Kudos to this big "kid!" I'm proud of him and his sense of humor!
Two of my favorite people: Jelly Bean and Lemon Drop
Aren't they adorable?The teens took the younger kids trick-or-treating, while the "adults" visited and ate chili. Chili is tradition at our house. Mmmmmm! Scott and I always fix chili with corn bread for this fun holiday! I love celebrating!
Sooooooo - I love reading. But I haven't had much time lately. I did get to read two books in the past month: The Skeleton in My Closet Wears a Wedding Dress by Sally Johnson and Cress by Marissa Meyer.
I LOVE KIDS! I really do! And I was privileged to get to have 9 of them for an entire week at my house. The Larsens were kind enough to trust me with their 7 children for them while they went out of town. I LOVED it! The kids were AWESOME! And it was nice to know that Scott and I could handle a LARGE family.
Do you know how hard it is to get 9 kids to pose without making weird faces?
Check out Kotten Kandy's odd face... And Doritos put pretzels in his nose?!
Me and a daughter and a son... Who knew I had a son?! :-)
9 kids - ages 16 to 3! :-)Believe it or not, we still homeschooled with this small army. We ate well. (I'm not great at fixing breakfasts and lunches - I consider making dinner a feat) but we managed to keep them all fed. And we kept them clean. And we got to church on time. And we went to the park twice. And we showed them the Liken the Scripture videos (which a couple of them would sing afterwards and make me smile!) And I got to tuck them in to bed and sing to them at night. We still were able to do our scripture study and family prayer and FHE. I enjoyed every minute! And I really do love those 9 kids! I'd "adopt" them all in a heartbeat!
