Doggos

It’s official… we now have dogs.

Steele is a boxer/pit mix and Leo there…

Probably full beagle, but who knows.

We can blame Redflare’s newly found family for this. Steele was a gift from her brother while Leo was a rescue. Found starving and nearly frozen.

They both seem to have adjusted nicely to a warm home with five kids and three cats. Amusingly this brute of a dog is scared of cats, probably better that way.

Let the housebreaking and training to not be on the furniture commence!

Halloween

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.

Halloween Supplies

It’s tradition now that we go out to the local pumpkin patch and let the kids pick out their pumpkins.

It’s also tradition to be sure to grab a picture of everybody on top of a haybale while we’re there.

We also decided to catch a picture of ourselves. A nice way to update our fall facebook profile picture.

Once everything was picked out it was time to play a little bit before heading back. The teens decided to have a contest and see who could reach the farthers up a halbale after a running start.

It didn’t end as was expected.

Meanwhile, Newbie was quite fearful of the prospects of Thunderer driving…

Cold Play

I remember this October day pretty well. It was a lot colder than expected so we didn’t stay out long at all, even though they were bundled.

The swings didn’t provide enough shelter to the wind so they went to the other equipment.

Any outside time is better than none though.

Especially if these kinds of smiles are the reward.
