Birthdays

With the blog in sort of catch up mode perhaps we’ll highlight some pictures from their birthdays without dedicating a post per kid.

That, and I don’t think Redflare grabbed pictures from every birthday we’ve missed on the blog since we last posted something. :p

There has been some gift giving along the way though, like a painting made by Little Miss for TJ:

Robo Baby

Right before Christmas break our family was accosted with a robot baby.

TJ had to adopt one for the weekend for a class.

More advanced than a ‘flour bag baby’ or “egg baby” but a heck of a lot less advanced than the Batman Beyond episode with robo babies.

If you’re curiuos, he aced it. Many a sleepless night through that weekend, but he aced the project.

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…

Drive Time

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.
