October flew by at the Yates house. I was going through pictures on my camera and the only pictures for October were Halloween. Wow!
I volunteered at the school for the Harvest parties, it was a very packed day. It's nice having all three kids in school so I am available to help out a lot more.
Victoria started the, "I'm too old to dress up but I still want to trick or treat" phase this year. Her "ghost" costume was all she would agree to do. We had a cute Princess costume for Maddy but when the Witch costume came out of storage, it was done. Gavin was a ninja, I tried for a cowboy but it was a no go.
The kids actually got quite spoiled this year. They went trick-or-treating for the city event on Saturday then went again on Halloween. They went around our neighborhood, then came back to hand out candy too! All in all it was a good Halloween.
Blayne and I have been married for 15 years! With three GREAT kids keeping us busy. Victoria 11 and is in the 6th grade, Gavin is almost 8, a 3rd grader and is a busy boy, Maddy is 6, in 1st grade and is showing us we had it easy with the first two. We are currently living in Sandy, OR. Blayne's childhood town. Life seems to be going so fast, we are excited to see what it has in store for us, there is nothing better then looking forward to doing it together!
