Life with Four...

Lesson learned...one is much easier than three! In fact, we went gallivanting around in October with Chloe in toe. We started on Oct. 20th with the Indianapolis Children's Museum--the largest in the world!

Here we all are in a dinosaur nest!



And in the model train section...


Matt found Jaba the Hut around the corner...


The boys loved playing in the water playzone!



Alex and Ty enjoy a little quality time with construction equipment...thank goodness this thing didn't have power!



Look! Brother vs. brother. The goal was to cycle along with your hands; against two, Ty lost.

Then we went to Appleworks on Oct. 25th--it's an apple orchard with a petting zoo, pumpkin patch, pony rides, ride-on train, and lots of other things to do and see. We had a blast!



We all went for a train ride...Daddy was probably too tall to fit in the car.


Jacen takes his first pony ride...

Ty says NEIGH!

Alex waves while enjoying his ride...

Alex thinks that he could totally take this turkey in a fight.

Leaves are falling, attracting the attention of small frys everywhere...

Goat! Maaaaa....


The search for the perfect pumpkin...


Ty is a serial pumpkin-hugger.

Riding the "Cool Bus"...

Trick-or-Treating at the law school!
Daddy and his skeleton crew...


Trick-or-treating at the mall...ARRRRGGG! There be no candy here, matey!

Chloe poses in her costume.

She enjoyed herself...every girl loves a trip to the mall, we guess!
Cuddling with Mommy on the couch...




Super Ty!

Uneasy is the head that wears the crown...


Super Alex waves hello.


Super Jacen is strong enough to pick up a whole bus.



Mmmm handy!!



"Grammy" reads to the boys.


Thanksgiving...we ate while the kids napped. Ahhh peace! They got their turkey later. Jody's Aunt Sue came in for the holidays, and her colleague Leandra joined them for dinner as well. Everything was scrumptious.



Chloe cuddles up with Aunt Sue...

I love the new name...you are also the spectacular six, you know. :-)

Jeez, the boys are getting huge. I forget that time is going by so quickly. It's hard to see that when you are with them every day so it all comes flooding back when I see your guys and how much they've grown. They are so cute! (I am drooling over Ty's hair by the way. I would love hair like that myself!)

And the package is still in my car...I suck. I may need to go back and make sure that it will still work. Ahem. Whoops!
