Not a lot of great pictures over the last few months sadly. I guess that’s what happens when we’re so busy.
Redflare took the kids out to a ‘dinner with Santa’ event at the local fire station. They loved it.
The food wasn’t overly impressive in Newbie’s eyes, and Thunderer opted to just have a cookie. :p
Food wasn’t the main reason to go though, so it works.

We’re getting there! Halloween pictures are a go!
If you can’t tell, Superman is Thanos, I’m Gandalf, TJ is Spiderman, Newbie is a sloth, Little Miss is a dark fairy/angel, and Thunderer is a “puppy” (Scooby Doo was the only way we could pull that one off.)
TJ went and coordinated costumes with his girlfriend too. She went as Silk.

Home is where the decorations are.
After the pumpkin patch we stopped by Menards real quick on the way home. A section of our fence blew down and we wanted to price how much the new slats and posts would be.
While there we enjoyed looking at some of the Christmas decorations… a bit early, but fine, go ahead Menards, as long as I’m not setting up my tree yet I guess you can go ahead.
Don’t mind us, just having a proud teen moment this fall with teen TJ getting ready to start practicing driving.
The state took a really long time to actually get us his permit for some reason.
So while he got all situated…
Redflare showed off her teasing nervousness.
They managed it though! He did pretty well for his first time and has practiced a little since then.
Reuniting is definately the theme of this trip after the original plan for it went pear shaped. (Why is that even a saying?)
Perhaps some closeups with brothers…
Even some old friends.
When life throws a monkey wrench at the plans, time to adjust to them and take advantage of the situation.
Redflare had to head south this Summer (part of the reason why not a lot of pictures got processed for a bit).
The reason now doesn’t matter too much, but there was a bonus to it in finally getting to meet some newfound family members in person.
Like our nephew.
He’s amazingly about Little Miss’ age. The first of a gaggle of sudden new relations.
And the “old man” there? Her big brother that she’d been looking for… for a really long time.
Yes, you read that title correctly.
Thunderer also started school this year.
Still school though.
She was very excited to be going.
The littles were sure to surround her and cuddle her extra at the bus stop.
