Octobooo! 31st

Today was a good day. First was Payton's football game. Today the Eagles played the Chiefs. My allegiance to all things Chiefs had to be put on hold while I rooted for the Eagles this day. Unfortunately both teams were winless and one was likely to stay that way. The game started out trading touchdowns, but soon the Eagle's running game took over and won the game 38-23. Payton even ran for a touchdown - an '80 yarder'! He was running his little heart out. The defense was chasing him. It was a hoot!Well like I said it was a big day. Today was Halloween of course! Kathleen got the boys dressed. Parker fought being in his costume, but after having in on for a bit he was fine. Payton was dressed as the coolest little zombie. Parker, since he already had all the accessories, was dressed as Buzz Lightyear.
I love this picture of Payton in costume!
The boys got quite a bit of loot. Plenty of candy to last awhile. We saved our best candy for last so we have a few peanut butter cups left over. Mmm Mmm good. We hope all of you had a great Halloween.

Payton's school picture

Our eldest recently had his school picture taken. This is his first real school photo. Previously it had just been a class photo. Handsome little boy he is. Well, at least his Mom and Dad think so.

He really took having this picture taken to heart. I think he picked out his own clothes. He had Grandma and Grandpa take him to get a haircut too.

Construct your own Ninja stick

Payton received some cool stuff for his birthday from his Swiss friend Hirad. One thing was TinkerToys. Payton likes building things and what better to build with than TinkerToys? Payton likes watching review videos of toys and such on YouTube and he has always wanted to post his own video. This is his first published video. I'm sure he'll do more as he gets older and learns to do them himself.

Football and the park

Today, and each Sunday now, is Payton's flag football game. Ironically he plays for the Eagles. Get it? We're moving to Doylestown, PA... North of Philly... Get it? Anywho, he plays for the Eagles.After Payton's game we went to Symme's Park for their Halloween festival. The town decorated the walking path with Halloween stuff and had candy stops every so often for the kids. They gave free small pumpkins to the kids and had a petting zoo as well.
