Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! You will see that I have put a lot of pictures out on my blog but after a ten-year period of holidays being just average. It has been so much fun to see Avalee be so excited. Today, we took the kids to Nathan's Halloween party, walked down the streets of DC (I know a free secret parking spot but I have to walk a ways to get to Nathan's work), and then took the kids trick-or-treating. They had a blast! Avalee got the concept of "knock, knock, trick-or-treat, thank you" but she was more interested in staying in a pack with the other kids than actually getting candy. Both kids are exhausted and have colds after so much fun, I think we will have a "take-a-break party" tomorrow. Posted by Picasa

As we walked through Dupont Circle in DC, Avalee wanted to sit down and be like everyone else. For of those of you that have never seen Dupont Circle, people sit around and talk and play chess and look at the fountain. Posted by Picasa

Lincoln loved to play with this helium balloon. He just couldn't figure out how to keep it on the floor! Posted by Picasa

Avalee's Cake! Avalee gets so excited when we got to parties and she expects there to be a cake. Good thing there was cupcakes. Posted by Picasa

Avalee and Lincoln were fascinated by the decorations and everyone dressed up. Posted by Picasa

Lincoln, the Witch!

Oh how I wish I could have got my camera a little faster!

Tonite Lincoln came riding the broom out of the kitchen into the living room. It was so funny to see him straddling the broom while walking and laughing. He made it about 20 feet before he lost his balance and fell over.
