Happy Halloween!

Here are some Halloween pics. As you can imagine, the boys had a blast this year. They couldn't believe they got to dress up, roar and get candy. What fun! You can check out their halloween fun below and per Mindy's request, we've even included a few pics of the house.

The season began with the ritual placing of the pumpkins on the porch.

Cousin Tommy and his main squeeze Kari helped the boys carve some really cute pumpkins. As you can see, the weather was a little cold that day.

And in keeping with tradition, the boys went trick or treating at Daddy's work. It looks like Owen has a sugar headache at this point.

Here Owen sports his Halloween shirt, from Missy, of course, as he hugs our swanky new pillows made by Gram.

Here's the crew before the neighborhood trick or treat. Tommy, dressed as a scarecrow, manned the house, while witch for the day, mommy, and photographer daddy took the Lion and Tiger 'round the 'hood. They raked in so much candy, we had to send some home to grandma :)

NOW for some long-awaited pics of the house. Thanks to hosting a playgroup this week, it was finally clean enough to take a few pics. This is the kitchen as seen from the "great-room".

This is another shot of the kitchen, Sean's playroom.

This is part of the "great-room" with a tiny Owen peaking in the left corner from the "dining room".

Here's the fireplace in the "great-room".

The master bath. Tough to take a good pic of the bathroom. Look closely-where is Di Di.

Our bedroom, without much furniture. But that's a story for another blog.

The Oxford Barbershop...

Our boys were in desperate need of haircuts, so daddy finally found time to give them a buzz.

Owen loves his new doo.

Luke did a great job keeping the barbershop's floor clean.

Then it was time for Luke's haircut. He is not a big fan of the clippers.

After all was said and done, the boys were eager to model their new look.

It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!

The boys had a blast picking their own pumpkins this weekend.

It invloved a thorough inspection of each pumpkin.

Checking out the roots.

Posing in the sunny pumpkin patch.

And they finally selecting a winner.

Finally a couple of close-ups of our little pumpkins!

What a smile!

Tommy has arrived!

The boys were thrilled to welcome cousin Tommy into the fold last week. They've all had a blast just "chillin."

They've really been "helping" him with his homework.

And taking breaks to play with the "di-di", aka firetruck.

Soon enough they're off to fight another fire. Aren't they cute sharing a ride?
